Reflections / Shadows / Symmetries  =  Antiscia

Planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia reflect each other across the cardinal axis. The cardinal axis is essentially the node of the Sun and is a point we all share. Which makes it important for everyone. The cardinal axis is the intersection of two Great Circles: the ecliptic, which is the sun's path (i.e., the tropical zodiac), and the earth's equator. A planetary pair is formed when planets connect in reflection to one another across the cardinal axis. Like a planetary statement made by two planets in aspect or conjunction, planets in antiscia make a terrestrial (or mundane) statement: a statement for the world. Therefore planetary pairs can provide insight into the energy of the day, as well as enriching natal and dynamic chart delineation. More on antiscia here...

To use the list of antiscia 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 one planet indicate its ingress onto the cardinal axis (meaning it's at zero cardinal or fifteen degrees fixed (midpoint), and ought to feature prominently that day).
  • Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia - a symmetrical arrangement around the Aries/Libra axis.
