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 the list below, simply blend the meanings of the planets in combination.
- Bold dates indicate a particular planetary expression is exact (within 10 minutes of arc).
- Dates showing only one planet indicate its ingress into a cardinal sign (meaning: it is sitting directly on the cardinal axis and so should feature prominently that day).
- Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia - symmetrical arrangements around the Aries/Libra axis.
- The date(s) the planetary pair is formed is listed on the left - the date & time of perfection is listed on the right.
It's a short list of planetary antiscia for February and no contra-antiscia. Though, Venus is on the cardinal axis (at 15 degrees Aquarius) for Valentine's Day. Enjoy!
