Voodoo (also spelled Voodou) is another set of beliefs and customs that has been given bad press by the media and Hollywood. Voodoo is simply a religion. It can be found in parts of Africa, the Caribbean, and the Americas. It is a blend of traditional beliefs and Catholicism. It is a simple yet very powerful faith that is community oriented and encourages personal empowerment and responsibility. Like anything else, it can be used for good or malice.

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.
