Below you'll find mundane planetary antiscia and contra-antiscia for March.

Antiscia and contra-antiscia are terms used to describe planets falling evenly, or symmetrically, around the Cardinal points (0 Cancer/Capricorn and 0 Aries/Libra - the solstice/equinox points) aka the Cardinal axis. Since everything on earth is affected by and responds to seasonal change, the Cardinal axis is a point we all share, and is therefore important and relevant for everyone - it is a point through which we connect to the world.

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 degrees Fixed), i.e. it is sitting directly on the Cardinal axis and ought to feature prominently that day. Those marked with an asterisk are antiscia formed around the midpoint of two Cardinal signs, which means they fall equidistant around 15 degrees Fixed. Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia and are symmetrical arrangements around the Aries/Libra axis, the equinoctial points, as opposed to the solstitial points (antiscia).


Antiscia on a typical wheel: 

This is the chart for the upcoming Solar ingress into Aries, the vernal equinox. You can see the antiscia of Saturn (positioned outside the circle) is very close to the Moon, which is where Neptune currently resides at 01PIS40 (but not shown in this chart). If you look at the dial (at top of article) you will see the Saturn Neptune antiscia. In this ingress chart however, Saturn is antisica the Moon (in addition to Neptune) and you can see the Moon is in antiscia to Saturn - they are standing in the shadow or reflection point of one another - this could be interpreted as a sad or suffering populace. 


Maybe at another time we'll talk about the trans neptunian (TNP) Hades....
