Arabic Lunar Mansions – ManzilsThe Twenty-Eight Arabic Lunar Mansions are part of the Arabic astrological system. The Arabic Moon Manions are called Manzils, which comes from the Arabic word manzil منازل (house).

These mansions correspond to the longitudes along the ecliptic that the Moon crosses during its 27.32-day journey around the Earth and serve as a way to track the Moon’s progress.

The Arabic Manzils are similar to others forms of lunar stations used in astrology including the Chinese Xiù and the Indian, or Hindu Nakshatras.

  1. OUTSTANDING POST. downloading it and printing a hardcopy immediately
    thanks thanks thanks

  2. Pure time wasting. Scientific Astrology is the real thing. What for making confusion and promotion of the Muslim culture?

    • Are you aware about the percentage of the muslim culture on the development of what you are calling scientific astrology?
      It’s surprising to see someone interesting to a specific subject contradictively ignorant about it.

      Jamie prepared a simple summary of arabic lunar mansions that you can see as a starting point.

      By the way, it should be hard to understand astrology deeply while having racist tendencies, you should be feeling disgusted to imagine other or some muslim people having similar experiences as you, based on their charts and transits.
