Seance

Definition of Seance

The word seance comes from the French language, meaning seat or session. It is used to describe a meeting of people who gather together to receive spiritual messages or to communicate with the dead. Often people are portrayed as seated around a table holding hands, but that’s not necessary to conduct a seance. Like many practices, the media and Hollywood have tended to perpetuate a lot of hype around seances that isn’t necessarily factual.

Ephemeris

An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
