ANTISCIA Sep/2016

Reflections / Shadows / Symmetries  =  Antiscia

Planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia reflect each other across the cardinal axis. This axis is formed by the four seasonal turning points: the zero degree entry point of each cardinal sign. The cardinal axis is essentially the node of the Sun and is a point we all share. It 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. Planets connect in antiscia when they reflect or mirror one another across this 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 which is relevant for everyone. Therefore planets in antiscia can provide insight into the energy of the day, as well as help to enrich your natal and dynamic chart delineations. More on antiscia here...

For help interpreting the pairs listed below, you may want to refer to a book like The Combination of Stellar Influences by Reinhold Ebertin, or Alfred Witte's Rules For Planetary Pictures. Or utilize an online resource for planetary pairs and midpoints, like this one by John Sandbach. Or just apply your current astrological understanding of the planets. You can think of these pairs as conjunctions; and remember to consider their shared or reflected dignity and reception. 

These planetary pairs are active for everyone as they are symmetrical to the Aries point. However, if you have natal planets on the cardinal axis (or in antiscia) then these connections will be even more pronounced and/or meaningful for you! For instructions on how to find these points in a chart, please see the Description page, or you can contact me for a mentoring session or consultation.

Or just apply your current astrological understanding of the planets, you can think of these pairs as conjunctions, and remember to consider their shared or reflected dignity and reception.

To use the list of antiscia below, simply blend the meanings of planets in combination. 

  • All connections are within 30 minutes of arc or less.
  • Dates showing one planet indicate its ingress onto the cardinal axis (meaning it's at zero cardinal and ought to feature prominently that day).
  • Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia - the symmetrical arrangement around the Aries/Libra axis.

ANTISCIA Jan/2016

Reflections / Shadows / Symmetries  =  Antiscia

Planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia reflect each other across the cardinal axis. This axis is formed by the four seasonal turning points: the zero degree entry point of each cardinal sign. The cardinal axis is essentially the node of the Sun and is a point we all share. It 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. Planets connect in antiscia when they reflect or mirror one another across this 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 which is relevant for everyone. Therefore planets in antiscia can provide insight into the energy of the day, as well as help to enrich your natal and dynamic chart delineations. More on antiscia here...  
 



Mercury Pluto conjunction is antiscia Saturn at the time of the Full Moon while Venus enters Capricorn (= cardinal axis)


This month there are two additional [longer-standing] passes of Mercury antiscia Saturn (they first connected briefly in December right after the solstice -- and so feature in the Capricorn ingress chart). Pluto is part of the combination this time however, so it's also Saturn and Pluto connecting across the cardinal axis. These repetitive contacts interest me given the players: Mercury Pluto in Saturn's domicile (Capricorn) in aversion (cannot see) but antiscia to Saturn posited in Sagittarius (ruled by Jupiter in its detriment). 

In Reinhold Ebertin's classic The Combination of Stellar Influences, we find descriptions for Mercury Saturn = Pluto as "the tendency to toil or grapple with unusual and special problems, the inclination to brood over one's destiny, plans determine a person's destiny." And for Saturn Pluto = Mercury, we find "the urge to do research work, thoroughness, taciturnity, -- the desire to solve difficult problems."

Many people are grappling with big issues right now. And a lot of these issues or concerns are very complex; some of them are out of our hands, and/or are difficult to see clearly; others are so large it's near impossible to know what exactly to do next....

Can the chaos, uncertainty, and instability of the time shake us even more awake?

-
A favorite artist of mine, Gillian Welch, has a powerful Saturn Pluto antiscia in her own natal chart (along with other antiscia connections: Mercury Jupiter, Node Venus, and Sun Pluto---i.e., she has the Sun and Saturn in exact opposition). In the spirit of Saturn Pluto, I'd like to share this song with you. 
 


With many big combinations and current events up right now, it seems silly to pick one or two, but there is another that strikes me as strangely important: it's the repeating connection of Mercury in trine to Jupiter (first connection: Dec. 25, second trine: Jan. 14, and third pass: Feb. 6th). I find it noteworthy because the exchange is a mixed one: Jupiter in Mercury's place of dignity (Virgo) while Mercury sees Jupiter from the sign of Jupiter's fall (Capricorn). One half of the partnership seems to be at the mercy of the other, and it is a challenging or uncomfortable connection, yet it has to happen. What or who does Mercury signify here? And, Jupiter? 

You'll note there are several additional charts below, including for the new moon on Jan. 9, which is antiscia the Venus Saturn conjunction. You'll see the charts for the two remaining Mercury Pluto conjunctions antiscia Saturn, and for when Mars joins the party- coming to the axis (at 15 fixed, Scorpio) at the end of the month. Hold on..

-
To use the list of antiscia below, simply blend the meanings of planets in combination. 

  • All connections are within 30 minutes of arc or less.
  • Dates showing one planet indicate its ingress onto the cardinal axis (meaning it's at zero cardinal and ought to feature prominently that day).
  • Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia - the symmetrical arrangement around the Aries/Libra axis.
     

For help with interpretation of the pairs listed below, you may want to refer to a book like The Combination of Stellar Influences by Ebertin, or Alfred Witte's Rules For Planetary Pictures, or this nice online resource for planetary pairs and midpoints by John Sandbach.

These planetary pairs are active for everyone as they occur on the cardinal axis, i.e., symmetrical to the Aries point. If you have personal planets on the cardinal axis, or in antiscia, they are likely even more pronounced and meaningful for you.

Reflections / Shadows / Symmetries  =  Antiscia

Planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia reflect each other across the cardinal axis. This axis is formed by the four seasonal turning points: the zero degree entry point of each cardinal sign. The cardinal axis is essentially the node of the Sun and is a point we all share. It 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. Planets connect in antiscia when they reflect or mirror one another across this 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 which is relevant for everyone. Therefore planets in antiscia can provide insight into the energy of the day, as well as help to enrich your natal and dynamic chart delineations. More on antiscia here...   
 


Moon in very early Taurus REflects the Mercury Venus.rx Jupiter conjunction in late leo
+ Uranus Neptune contra-antiscia 


The longstanding URANUS NEPTUNE contra-antiscia is still in effect but weakens (to less than one degree of orb) about mid-month. There is also a gnarly configuration coming: Mars Saturn which is active August 9th to 12th. (My advice = Work Hard.) The Moon joins and further triggers this picture on August 12th. And Mercury chimes in, opposing Neptune and linking up with Uranus by contra-antiscion. Since the Uranus Neptune combo is still on the axis, all five then six points will be engaged at this time. Try to be mindful, note what's in the news, and enjoy the Perseid meteor shower which occurs then too. 

For help with interpretation of the pairs listed below please refer to a book like The Combination of Stellar Influences by Reinhold Ebertin, or Alfred Witte's Rules For Planetary Pictures. There is also a nice online resource for planetary pairs and midpoints by John Sandbach.

Planetary pairs are active for everyone as they occur on the cardinal axis, i.e., symmetrical to the Aries point. If you have personal planets on the cardinal axis, or in antiscia, they may be even more pronounced and meaningful for you.

To use the list of antiscia below, simply blend the meanings of 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 (the midpoint), and ought to feature prominently that day).
  • Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia - the symmetrical arrangement around the Aries/Libra axis.

* Lunar conjunctions (not antiscia) are bracketed [ ] - included here for a quick and easy reference!

ANTISCIA Jul/2015

Reflections / Shadows / Symmetries  =  Antiscia

Planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia reflect each other across the cardinal axis. This axis is formed by the four seasonal turning points: the zero degree entry point of each cardinal sign. The cardinal axis is essentially the node of the Sun and is a point we all share. It 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. Planets connect in antiscia when they reflect or mirror one another across this 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 which is relevant for everyone. Therefore planets in antiscia can provide insight into the energy of the day, as well as help to enrich your natal and dynamic chart delineations. More on antiscia here...   
 


The longstanding URANUS NEPTUNE contra-antiscia is exact as of July 4th. But it remains with just minutes of one degree orb for the entire month of July. On the 4th however we also see Mercury Mars in antiscia (hopefully this does not speak to a bunch of blown off fingers here in the US).  :-O

Also of note, at the start of the month Mars is at the bendings (exactly square the nodes). 

For help with interpretation of the pairs listed below please refer to a book like The Combination of Stellar Influences by Reinhold Ebertin, or Alfred Witte's Rules For Planetary Pictures. There is also a nice online resource for planetary pairs and midpoints by John Sandbach.

Solstice on the cardinal axis

Sun = Uranus NeptunE   (See this on the 90 degree dial below)


The longstanding URANUS NEPTUNE contra-antiscia approaches perfection by the end of this month. Neptune stations retrograde on June 11/12th at 9°49' Pisces (around the same time Mercury stations direct). Soon after, about halfway through the month, the pair's (UR NE) midpoint is within a ten minute orb - and is within one minute of arc on the last day of June. This means every time a planet comes to the Aries Point (including zero degrees Cancer, and the solstice), it will pick up and illuminate its otherworldly meaning. This also means whenever there is a planetary pair in antiscia (as in the list below) they form a completed planetary picture with the UR NE combo. 

For help with interpretation of these pairs and midpoints, refer to a book like The Combination of Stellar Influences, by Reinhold Ebertin, or Alfred Witte's, Rules For Planetary Pictures. John Sandbach also has a nice online resource for midpoints.

URANUS NEPTUNE COMES TO THE CARDINAL AXIS - WHERE IT WILL REMAIN FOR MANY MONTHS 
+ MARS PLUTO + MOON JUPITER  


Things are about to get (even more) weird... 

URANUS NEPTUNE = cardinal axis. This pair will move into within a half degree contra-antiscion at the end of this month, and will remain in exact contra-antiscia for the rest of this season (spring, in the northern hemisphere) and for much the summer (as well as spring, fall and winter of 2016). That means Uranus, the planet of tension, excitement, innovation, and all things electrifying, is moving into the exact shadow point of Neptune, a planet of fantasy, impressionability, reception, and sometimes dissolution or chaos.

From my perspective, (at its best) this has METAPHYSICS, intensified discourse about death or alternate states of consciousness, shadow work, and the 'underworld' (or otherworld) written all over it. And that could be a very good thing. 

This planetary pair will be active for everyone since it is happening on the cardinal axis, i.e., symmetrical to the Aries point. But it may be even more pronounced or meaningful for you if you have personal planets on the cardinal axis or in antiscia. For directions on how to find these points in a chart, please see the Description page; or you can contact me for a mentoring session or consultation

Here are some excerpts on the UR NE pair from The Combination of Stellar Influences, by Reinhold Ebertin, and Alfred Witte's Rules for Planetary Pictures:

  • The elimination of the waking consciousness
  • + The development and growth of the sub-conscious powers or forces, inner vision, inner illumination and enlightenment, inspiration, idealism, an interest in spiritual subjects, religious problems, mysticism, art. 
  • - Lacking control of the waking consciousness leads to want of clearness. Instability, lack of emotional balance, nervous sensitiveness, wrong ideas, one-sidedness. 
  • Mystics, people engaged in psychical research, mediums. 

(Ebertin)

  • Suddenly incapacitated. Unconsciousness. Checkmated. Transition into the beyond. Crisis. Dead persons. Revolution. Psychic. 
  • - Aries point: Metaphysics. Occultism. Funerals. Cemeteries.  

(Witte)

"religious problems"?... hmm 


There was another long-standing combination like this on the axis during Occupy Wall Street.

ANTISCIA Feb/2015

Reflections / Shadows / Symmetries  =  Antiscia

Planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia reflect each other across the cardinal axis. This axis is formed by the four seasonal turning points: the zero degree entry point of each cardinal sign. The cardinal axis is essentially the node of the Sun and is a point we all share. It 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. Planets connect in antiscia when they reflect or mirror one another across this 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 which is relevant for everyone. Therefore planets in antiscia can provide insight into the energy of the day, as well as help to enrich your natal and dynamic chart delineations. More on antiscia here...   


Venus Mars and the Moon cluster around the Aries Point (zero degrees Aries) on February 19/20th

 

To use the list of antiscia below, simply blend the meanings of planets in combination. For help with interpretation, refer to a book like The Combination of Stellar Influences by Reinhold Ebertin, or an online source like this one by John Sandbach

  • 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 (the midpoint), and ought to feature prominently that day).
  • Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia - the symmetrical arrangement around the Aries/Libra axis.
