In the ephemeris image, you’ll see retrograde planets marked with a red Rx symbol, while a black D means the planet is direct.
The planets/points included in this ephemeris are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune Pluto, and the True North Node. While the inner planets and luminaries move relatively quickly through the signs, the outer planets take many months or years to do so. For this reason, you often see only one sign for slower-moving planets in a given month.
The Planetary Data column depicts Ingresses (planetary sign changes) and Stations (planetary changes of direction, whether direct or retrograde).
The middle column lists Lunar Ingresses, showing dates and times that the Moon changes zodiac sign, and Void Moon data.
Finally, the right column lists Lunar Phases (New, First Quarter, Full, and Last/Third Quarter) and, if occurring this month, eclipses are listed. A filled-in black circle signifies the New Moon, while an empty black circle represents the Full Moon.
This monthly ephemeris is based on the Tropical Zodiac. It lists planetary positions by sign and degree on a daily basis at midnight Eastern Time.
