Why am I getting a different chart when I enter that date and time into Astrodienst? I am getting Sun 6 degrees Leo 55 minutes, Moon 0 degrees Virgo 08 minutes and Ascendant 2 degrees Sagittarius 52 minutes.



Fleur,

Is is a Julian date not Gregorian !!


There is more than a 4 degree difference in the Sun's position, ie more than 4 days, between the Julian date and the Gregorian. The Sun in the chart above is 10 degrees Leo 48 minutes, and the chart when you enter that date into Astrodienst's chart calculator is 6 degrees Leo 55 minutes.

This discrepancy has nothing to do with the Julian v. Gregorian calendars.


It does !

If you enter this in Astrodienst you have to enter as year 762 jul. and with the time 14h 30m . Then you will have the right chart.

But that was in 1582. If the Gregorian corrections had happened at a date half way between 46BC and 1582, then you would only have needed half as much correction....


That is my understanding too

Amelia/Fleur/Geoffrey,


I found a link which gives the difference in days between Julian and Gregorian days.
