Ephemeris: A graphic ephemeris is a visual presentation
of transits and/or progressions in relationship to a natal
chart. The graphic ephemeris was popularized by Reinhold Ebertin
and other astrologers who use the system of astrology known
Eclipse Map: An
eclipse map is a map that shows the path of the shadow on the
earth that is created during a solar eclipse.
During a solar eclipse, the Moon crosses the path of the Sun. When a solid object
(the Moon in this case) is placed in front of a source of light (the Sun in this
case) of course a shadow is created. When a solar eclipse occurs, a shadow appears
on the earth, and as the Moon moves across the surface of the earth the shadow
moves across the surface of the earth. The shadow is fairly narrow, so a path
can be drawn on a map showing what this path is. The eclipse maps in Kepler show
the path of the solar eclipse.
Ephemeris: The text ephemeris is a listing of planet positions
each day. This listing is similar to the listing found in ephemeris
books. See sample below.
few of the powerful features of Kepler Workshop are: combining
natal, secondary progressed, solar arc directions, and transits
in a graphic ephemeris, customizing line width and colors in
the graphic ephemeris, putting more than one eclipse path on
a map, and producing a text ephemeris in tropical or sidereal,
and including transneptunian planets and/or major asteroids.
