Shaman

Definition of Shaman

A shaman is a medicine man, witch doctor, priest, healer, or sage who has the ability to travel to unworldly realms to bring back healing, information, or messages. While the origins of the word are fairly old, the word was only introduced into western culture about 500 years ago. A female shaman is called a shamaness.

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.
