[mz] : Moon in Zodiac Tokens

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The following tokens are used to display information about Moon Zodiacal Events (when the Moon enters a new Zodiac sign, aka Mondlauf in German). The available tokens are :

 

[mz]

Moon Zodiac Symbol : displays a character, usually from a decorative font such as Wingdings, which represents the current Zodiac sign. This token is converted to a blank on any day when there is no Moon Zodiacal event.

[mZ]

Moon Zodiac Symbol (first and last day) : similar to the [mz] token, above, but shows the current Zodiac sign on the first and last days of a cycle.

[MZ]

Moon Zodiac Symbol (everyday) : similar to the [mz] token, above, but shows the current Zodiac sign on everyday.

[mzn]

Moon Zodiac Name : displays the name of the Zodiac sign into which the Moon is entering. This token is converted to a blank on any day when there is no Moon Zodiacal event.

[mZn]

Moon Zodiac Name (first and last day) : similar to the [mzn] token, above, but shows the current Zodiac name on the first and last days of a cycle.

[MZN]

Moon Zodiac Name (everyday) : similar to the [mzn] token, above, but shows the current Zodiac names on everyday.

[mzt]

Moon Zodiac Time : displays the time at which the Moon enters a new Zodiac sign. You can add an h or an m to this token to only display the hours or minutes part of the time. This token is converted to a blank on any day when there is no Moon Zodiacal event.

 

 

By default calculations look for a change anytime during the current day. To have the token based on the Moon Zodiacal position at the beginning of the day, add :midnight to any of the above tokens, and to have the token based on the Moon Zodiacal position at noon, add :noon to any of the above tokens.

 

To specify how each of the above tokens is displayed (am/pm or 24 hours, names of the zodiac signs and symbols), use the Moon and Sun Options property.

 

The calculations used for this token are based on the location specified by the Moon Data Source property. If more than one source is selected, you can specify which source to use by appending a digit that corresponds to that source's position in the list of selected sources. The suffixes h and m can also be used to display the hour and minutes part of the time only, and are placed between the token and the digit.

 

An example of their use is

 

 

which converts to

 

 

Note how the above example also makes use of filler tokens to only display the text Moon enters and the text at on days when a Moon Zodiacal events does occur.
