You are now in the highest tower of the castle. It is up here where the Taldish Observatory resides. The whole place
is cared for by Andrew Arostrod, our astronomer and astrologist. He can be found either with an eye in the telescope
or pouring over star charts. It is usually cold up here but Arostrod seems indifferent. You can find interesting tid bits of
useful information here, such as the phase of the moon and when Mercury is going retrograde. Useful information for
witches. Arostrod is from the Czech Republic and an expert on glass and lenses. He also makes a wonderful
next full moon will be March 1st
at 6:51 P.M.
Sun enters Pisces on February 18th at 11:18 A.M.
No planets are currently retrograde
that times are in Central Standard Time. Be aware that Taldish
Castle does not recognize Daylight Saving Time. If you do you Must
add an hour to "spring ahead".
Taldish Castle lives by the sun, not the clock. In fact our clock happens to be a sundial.
