I am struggling to find out an information about how to determine ascending/descending cycle of the Moon.
I can find from this source and a bunch of others, that Moon begins to descend when reaches Gemini and minimum when reaches Sagittarius.
I tried to do a simple comparison using flatlib library:
from flatlib import const from flatlib.datetime import Datetime from flatlib.geopos import GeoPos from flatlib.chart import Chart d1 = Datetime("2020/1/21") d2 = Datetime("2020/1/22") d3 = Datetime("2020/1/23") pos = GeoPos('50n06', '14e24') #I concentrate to a specific place on northern hemisphere c1 = Chart(d1, pos) c2 = Chart(d2, pos) c3 = Chart(d3, pos) m1 = c1.get(const.MOON) m2 = c2.get(const.MOON) m3 = c3.get(const.MOON) print(m1) print(m2) print(m3)
Moon Sagittarius +14:07:19 +13:16:13 Moon Sagittarius +27:17:06 +13:03:28 Moon Capricorn +10:14:25 +12:51:13
Am I right that moon is ascending during these days (21-23rd Jan 2020) as it moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn and further to Gemini?
I am aware of this answer, but I am not exactly sure if it deals with same problematics.
