Galactic Center

The center of the galaxy in which our solar system lies. From our location the Galactic Center is located in the latter degrees of Sagittarius. Owing to the tropical zodiac which most Western astrologers use, the exact position of the Galactic Center appears to be gradually shifting, however in the year 2000 it is at 21 degrees and 51 minutes of Sagittarius. Astrologers who have studies this sensitive degree in natal charts have found that it exerts a powerful influence concerning a person's relationship with the cosmos.
