Planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia reflect one another across the cardinal axis. The cardinal axis (also known as the Aries Point) is essentially the Node of the Sun, and is a point we all share. When planets connect by antiscia or contra-antiscia, a planetary pair is formed. These pairs provide insight into the energy of the day as well as enriching natal chart delineation. Why antiscia...

To use this list, simply blend the meanings of planets in combination. (You can always refer to a book, such as Combinations of Stellar Influences by Reinhold Ebertin, if you need help with keywords.) 

The bold dates above indicate a day when the particular planetary expression is strongest - within 10 minutes of arc or less. Dates with one planet indicate its ingress into a Cardinal sign, or to 15 degrees Fixed, meaning it is sitting directly on the cardinal axis and so should feature prominently that day. Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia, signs arranged around the Aries/Libra axis. Finally, those marked with an asterisk* are antiscia formed around the midpoint of two Cardinal signs (midpoint: 15 Fixed) and are indirect antiscia.
