DateTime::Event::ZodiaUser Contributed Perl DocumentDateTime::Event::Zodiac(3)

NAME
       DateTime::Event::Zodiac - Return	zodiac for a given date

SYNOPSIS
	 use DateTime::Event::Zodiac qw(zodiac_date_name zodiac_date_symbol zodiac_astro_name zodiac_astro_symbol);

	 my $dt	= DateTime->new(
	   year	  => 1979,
	   month  => 3,
	   day	  => 27,
	 );

	 print zodiac_date_name($dt);
	 print zodiac_astro_symbol($dt);

       Returns the latin zodiac	name or	alternatively the unicode zodiac
       symbol for the given date. The zodiac may be calculated using either
       fixed dates or using the	exact longitude	of the sun.

       The module exports no symbols by	default. All used functions must be
       requested in the	use statement.

       All methods return undef	on failure.

DESCRIPTION
   zodiac_date_name
	$name =	zodiac_date_name($dt);

       Latin zodiac name: aries, taurus, gemini, cancer, leo, virgo, libra,
       scorpius, sagittarius, capricornus, aquarius and	pisces.

       Fixed dates.

   zodiac_date_symbol
	$symbol	= zodiac_date_symbol($dt);

       Unicode zodiac symbol positions U+2648 to U+2653.

       Fixed dates.

   zodiac_astro_name
	$name =	zodiac_astro_name($dt);

       Latin zodiac name: aries, taurus, gemini, ...

       Calculated from the longitude of	the sun.

   zodiac_astro_symbol
	$symbol	= zodiac_astro_symbol($dt);

       Unicode zodiac symbol positions U+2648 to U+2653.

       Calculated from the longitude of	the sun.

   zodiac_date
       Simply computes the zodiac from the fixed date and returns a hash with
       the keys	name, symbol, start and	end.

       Used internally by "zodiac_date_name" and "zodiac_date_symbol"

   zodiac_astro
       Computes	the zodiac from	the position of	the sun	and returns a hash
       with the	keys name, symbol, start and end. The keys start and end
       should be ignored since they are	only used for the "zodiac_date"
       function.

       May differ from the results of "zodiac_date" depending on the solar
       year (leap year ect).

       See DateTime::Astro for notes on	accuracy.

       Used internally by "zodiac_astro_name" and "zodiac_astro_symbol"

DISCLAIMER
       The author of this module regads	astrology as being a pseudoscience and
       superstition. I wrote this module for my	job. I was young, foolish and
       I needed	the money.

TODO
       The "zodiac_astro_horoscope" and	"zodiac_date_horoscope"	functions have
       not yet been implemented	and probably never will	be ;-)
