Antiscia from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In astrology, the antiscion
(pl. antiscia) is considered to be the mirror image, or shadow, of a
planet based upon a line of reference, which is the axis of 0 Cancer/0
Capricorn (the position of the sun at the solstices). These antiscia are
also known as the "solstice points".
For example, the corresponding antiscia sign placements are as follows:-
A planet's antiscion is the shadow of that planet.
A planet can receive a transit, progression, or direction from another
planet, and this is said to bring about covert kinds of events—backroom
meetings, secret doings, discreet happenings.
In order to calculate an antisca point, one must take the degree of
the planet that he wants to locate the antiscia for and subtract it from
30 degrees. For example, if a person's sun is 10 degrees 51 minutes
Aquarius then his antiscia will be as follows:
29 degrees 60 minutes (ie 30 degrees*)
minus 10 degrees 51 minutes Aquarius (the Sun degree*)
equals 19 degrees 09 minutes Scorpio (the Sun's Anticia*)
Therefore, the antiscia of 10 degrees 51 minutes Aquarius is 19 degrees 9 minutes Scorpio.
Whenever a planet's antiscion is aspected by transit or progression,
it indicates that something that is hidden or working behind the scenes
will occur in the life of the native. It is important, therefore, that
one should look at the antiscia points whenever reading a horoscope
because it will reveal things about the native that will not be readily
(except for the * which I added)
