[sz] : Sun in Zodiac Tokens

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The following tokens are used to display information about Sun Zodiacal Events (when the Sun enters a new Zodiac sign, also known as the date that determines your Zodiac sign in Western astrology). The available tokens are :

 

[sz]

Sun Zodiac Symbol : displays a character, usually from a decorative font such as Wingdings, which represents the current Zodiac sign, on the days when that sign changes.

[sZ]

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

[SZ]

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

[szn]

Sun Zodiac Name : displays the name of the Zodiac sign into which the Sun is entering.

[sZn]

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

[SZN]

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

[szt]

Sun Zodiac Time : displays the time at which the Sun 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.

 

The calculations used for these tokens are based on the location specified by the Sun 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.

 

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. These tokens are all converted to a blank on any day when there is no Sun Zodiacal event.

 

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 begins today at on days when a Sun Zodiacal events does occur.
