It's under Orion's belt.


The problem with astrology is that when they say Sagittarius, they aren't actually talking about the constellation Sagittarius, although they might be pretending to be.

They still use for their star charts, those which the Babylonians put in place. That means the entire sky has shifted relative to that. Here's a basic article to serve as background for what I mean:

So, I'll use today to make it easy. This is a snap I just took:

Now we can safely say that the Moon is pretty close to Virgo and that Mars and Jupiter are pretty close to Libra. However, the astrologers say that Mars and Jupiter are both in Scorpio, while the Moon is (leaving Virgo) and entering Libra. It's a rare day that they get the position of the moon correct but today is one of those days. The region of the sky which the astrologists call Scorpio actually includes the entire constellation Libra, and so on around the entire Zodiac. (I'm a bit more forgiving about the Ophiochus/Sextans/Orion/Auriga/Cetus crap, since the modern constellation boundaries are subjective anyway). What is really funny though is when the Moon or a planet is fully within the constellation visually, yet the astrologists claim it is elsewhere. It's a type of libel. So never mind the fact that the system doesn't work. They don't follow the actual rules of their own system.

What's the purple line?

I was in a class once and a lady told us she worked for a newspaper in a small town and decided she wanted to publish the horoscopes. The editor told her where they had put the package from whoever sent them out. She went and got it and noticed there were no dates. She contacted the company that printed the masters and asked, "How do I know which one to print when?" The person told her, "Oh it doesn't matter. Just pick one."

The purple line I think is the ecliptic.

Except for the straight lines, that could be a spirograph.
