Gauquelin Sectros Details:
The Mars effect hypothesis was first published by the French researcher Michel Gauquelin in 1955. It states that Mars occupies certain region of the sky more often at the time that sports champions are born than at the time that other people are born. Gauquelin divided the sky into 36 sections, using this formula: The time that a planet rises is subtracted from the time it sets to determine how long the planet is above the horizon and then this duration of time is divided into 18 equal sections. Similarly the time from the time that the planet sets until it rises is divided into 18 equal sections. Based on the time of birth one can then determine which of the 36 sections of the sky Mars was in at the time of birth. Note that:
- Sector 1 starts where Mars rises and is just above the horizon
- Sector 10 starts when Mars has reached its highest point in the sky and is halfway between sunrise and sunset (Mars has cross the meridian plane above the horizon)
- Sector 19 starts when Mars sets and is just below the western horizon
- Section 28 stars when Mars reaches its lowest point, crossing the meridian plane below the horizon.
The key sectors are grouped into 4 groups: (a) sectors 36 and 1 to 3 and (b) sectors 9 to 12, as well as the opposite sectors, which are (c) sectors 18 to 21 and (d) sectors 27 to 30. Gauquelin claimed that among outstanding sports champions the Mars rate - percentage born in key sectors - was not around the base rate of the population at large, namely 17 percent, but rather more like 22 percent.

Given above are the Gauquelin sectors and the percent through each sector.
The time of the previous and next culmination/anti-culmination or rising/setting
of each planet is also given for the purpose of validating the calculations.
Gauquelin sectors are calculated by dividing each quadrant into 9 sectors, for
a total of 36 sectors.
Sectors 1-3, 9-12, 18-21, 27-30, and 36 are the "plus zones" and a "+"
appears after the number of the sector in the list above. According to
Gauquelin's research, a planet has a stronger influence when it is in a
plus zone. Planets in a minus zone, designated with "-", are not as strong.
