Western sidereal astrology is the rediscovery of ancient Babylonian astrology, the original form of astrology. Sidereal, from the Latin, sidus, (star) is the type of astrology that reckons celestial longitude from the positions of the stars, rather than the vernal equinox.
Western sidereal astrology is both new in the West and the revival of an ancient art. Babylonian astrology was introduced to the West in 1944 by Cyril Fagan, an Irish astrological scholar, after he had examined the ancient astronomical materials excavated from the Near and Middle East.
