ANTISCIA Dec/2011 Jupiter+Neptune=Uranus... cont.

The long-standing contra-antiscia of Jupiter|Neptune to Uranus (at 0 Aries) continues to persist through all of the month of December. Keywords for Ju|Ne include: pretend or false luck, faulty investments, and hypocrisy. Uranus signifies surprises, breakthroughs or breakdowns, and earthquakes (literally and/or figuratively). In the book Rules for Planetary Pictures, Alfred Witte described this combination, Jupiter + Neptune = Uranus, as: a sudden collapse, bankruptcy, in addition to, suddenly getting money which is easily earned - sounds like fake money flooding the banks to me. Further into December another somewhat long-standing antiscion occurs between Saturn|Chiron, in Libra and Pisces respectively.

To use this list, simply blend the meanings of planets in combination. Bold dates indicate the strongest day for a particular planetary expression. Dates showing only one planet indicate its ingress into a Cardinal sign (or 15 degree Fixed) i.e. it is sitting directly on the Cardinal axis, and so should feature prominently that day. Those marked with an asterisk are antiscia formed around the midpoint of two Cardinal signs, which is always at 15 degrees Fixed. Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia, a symmetrical arrangement around the Aries/Libra axis, which like contra parallel may be more stressful or unstable.

Antiscia refers to reflections or shadow points symmetrically arranged around zero degrees of any of the Cardinal signs - Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. Antiscia has been noted and utilized by astrologers since at least the 4th century; Julius Firmicus Maternus mentions antiscia in his Mathesis. Because these are arrangements falling around the Cardinal axis, and all life on earth moves in sync with, and is affected by, seasonal change, planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia are thought to manifest powerfully in the world.
