From Dr. Henry Herzberger about Tropical vs. Sidereal zodiac and astrology charts:
TROPICAL VERSUS SIDERIAL ZODIAC
What many people don't realize is that the Tropical zodiac is not based on the true position of the constellations. It simply divides the ecliptic into 12 sectors and names the first 30 degree sector as Aries where the ecliptic intersects the equator at the time of the Spring equinox. This is arbitrarily said to be the Sun in Aries. At one time 4000 years ago this point did coincide with the actual constellation Aries, but not anymore.
One of the greatest of Western astrologers Sidney Omarr commented on this saying that in the Tropical Zodiac anyone can see all the planets are off by almost one sign (24 degrees now) from the actual constellations they are lined up with.
Sidney Omarr said someone in the Middle Ages created this error in calculating position of planets relative to constellations by not accounting for the earth's wobble. Sidney Omarr himself was one of the first defenders of Astrology in the West, as well as himself a genius in astrology but apparently still felt this calculation error should have been corrected.
It is noteworthy that for 1000's of years astrologers both West and East --in all of history's ancient great civilizations such as in Greece, Sumeria, Arabia, India, etc. --always based their calculations on the actual correct positions of the planets and houses. This was designed to lead to most accurate predictions.
Because Western Tropical astrology is basically off by almost a sign in terms of strictly true positions of constellations, in its use there is heavy reliance on aspects (distance between planets) which remain stable, as well as on houses (if you shift all houses and planets by the same 24 degrees, then you get similar positions of planets in houses). Also transits and progressions of planets tend to remain stable. Meanings of houses, planets and even constellations is carried over from ancient astrology. However because of constellations' true positions being off by 24 degrees in Western Tropical Zodiac based astrology, some major differences arise in terms of predicting.
A Western astrologer years ago noted that she could not accurately predict the stock market from the chart as is-- but without understanding it, she said if you just went one sign back for the rising sign (Cancer instead of Leo) it all worked well for predicting trends. Interestingly even though she did not realize it, this is because Cancer was the actual rising sign constellation for the birth of the stock market (i.e., in the Siderial zodiac).
Each planet and constellation has a personality and nature-- it is a mass of sentient awareness. It makes a great difference to say the Sun lines up with Aries, or it is Pisces. The energy is totally different. It is good to be able to take into account the true interactions of energy and consciousness in the sky.
If anything is to be said, the Tropical Zodiac simply represents symbolically 12 sectors of change which start at the Vernal equinox. These twelve sectors are given the names of the Zodiac constellations, but do not actually correspond to the present position of the constellations. However they do represent in Vedic Astrology what is called Kala Purusha's chart. This means the symbolic energies of change in the Universal Chart of God's Nature. It actually refers to changes of seasons. There is early spring, late spring, then early summer, late summer, etc.
In my mind it seems to me if we want to be truly accurate about it, why not call the twelve sectors of the symbolic Natural Chart of God by some other names. Then we could understand a person better in terms of the energy of seasons-- i.e. a Spring child, a Summer child, a Fall child, a Winter child. And each season has its planetary energy of Mars, or Venus or Sun etc. Then it might create less confusion in the practice of both forms of astrology-- Western Tropical and Eastern Siderial. And the best points of each system can properly be integrated.
