Vernal Point

Astrological Dictionary

The beginning of measurement of right ascension on the celestial equator or of celestial longitude on the ecliptic. O degrees. The Spring equinox in the Northern hemisphere. Due to precession the synetic vernal point is now in Pisces. In the southern hemisphere this marks the Autumnal Equinox, thus calling into disrepute, any notion of a seasonal zodiac.
