ANTISCIA June/2013

Planets in antiscia and contra-antiscia reflect one another across the cardinal axis. The cardinal axis (sometimes called the Aries Point) is essentially the node of the Sun and is a point we all share. It is the intersection of two Great Circles: the ecliptic (the sun's path = our zodiac) and the earth's equator. A planetary pair is formed when planets connect across the cardinal axis; similar to planetary pairs formed by planets in aspect or in conjunction, planets in antiscia are making a terrestrial statement. Planetary pairs 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 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 ought to feature prominently that day).
  • Those with a (c) indicate contra-antiscia - a symmetrical arrangement around the Aries/Libra axis.
  • The date[s] the planetary pair is formed is listed on the left - and the date & time of its perfection is on the right.    

The month begins with some sweetness, Mercury|Venus, followed by more when Venus crosses the 0 Cancer point on June 2nd. Loads of ideas and insights may come with Mercury|Jupiter connecting - as they mirror one another from a place of each other's dignity (Gemini-Cancer, rulership-exaltation). Speaking of dignity, Jupiter ingresses into its most powerful place, its place of exaltation, Cancer, on June 25th where it remains until July 16, 2014. Where is Cancer in your birth chart - what does Jupiter's ingress into Cancer mean for you? What blessings might Jupiter bring? If you'd like help understanding this, I offer consultations and tutoring
