The term Aquarius is the Latin translation of the original Greek term “Hydrochoos” which literally means “Water Pourer”. Ruled by Uranus, Aquarius is also a little bit on the eccentric side, and often possesses an intellect that is ranked at the genius level. As the Cardinal Earth Sign, Capricorn is often considered the most successful sign of the zodiac. Capricorns are so grounded in the Earth that they are also the most traditional and conservative of the zodiac signs, so a big complaint of Capricorns is they can be a little on the low drama boring side. The constellation for the zodiac star of Sagittarius is translated as “The Archer” from its Latin origination, and from the term “Toxotes” in Greek mythology. Boredom with a Sagittarius is the enemy, and this mutable sign will move on quickly with the first whiff of it.
As a Fixed Water Sign, Scorpio is one of the most psychic and empathic signs of the zodiac, which makes them great detectives or very successful in fields that require analysis and investigation. The zodiac term we know as “Libra” is derived from the Latin word “The Balance” and the Greek term “Zygos”. The term “Virgo” comes from the Latin word Virgin which is derived from the Greek term Parthenos. Leo is the Latin term for “lion” which is translated from the Greek “Leon” to create the Fixed Fire Sign of Leo! This is a sign that is ruled by the Sun, which translates easily into their sunny personality. In the zodiac world, the word “Cancer” is the Latin word for the Greek term Karkinos, or Crab in English. This sign also rules fertility, the family, and feels every mood that swings their way deeper than any other sign. The word “Gemini” is a Latin word translated from the Greek word “Didymoi” which means “The Twins”. Gemini is the Mutable Air Sign, and this gives them an abundance of energy, intellect, and communication skills.
Grounded in Mother Earth, Taurus is practical, responsible, logical, hardworking, and very loyal. As a Cardinal Fire Sign, Aries is a born leader with fire beneath their wings in every endeavor they pursue.
Cardinal signs are born leaders and initiators, so the thrill of the chase of any good project or friend is always very exciting for Aries. When any of the karma planets like Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde, it’s always a good time to review the laws of karma, and how to manifest the very definition of karma in your own life. Then, when these karma planets go direct again, the rewards are there for the taking, no matter what your zodiac sign is. Yes we believe in Destiny and Fate, but we also believe in creating that Destiny and Fate here at Astrology Answers. Besides being nice to people all of the time, owning it is a very difficult thing to do in life. Subscribe to our newsletter and get latest news and exclusive offers straight to your inbox. Astrologers will often define the ascendant as the point of the ecliptic on the eastern horizon at the time and place of birth. Robert Hand provides two useful and more precise definitions of the point in his essay on the ascendant, midheaven and vertex in extreme latitudes (for reference see below). In the following image, the horizontal frame of reference is shown, with the rational horizon being the green plane running through the east, north, west and south points.
In this case, the ascendant ought to be defined without reference to direction (east) or according to above and below (the ascending node option). To define the ascendant using the same terms and conditions as that used for the midheaven, we have to limit ourselves to reference to zenith distance.
In this definition of the ascendant, the application of direction (east) or concepts of above and below are not required to make a precise meaning of the term. We now have precise definitions for the angles of the horoscope using the minimum number of concepts. The midheaven is defined as the ecliptic degree that is at its minimum zenith distance during its diurnal cycle. The ascendant is defined as the ecliptic degree that has a zenith distance of ninety degrees but is yet to attain its minimum zenith distance during its diurnal cycle. The IC (Imum Coeli) is the ecliptic degree that is at is maximum zenith distance during its diurnal cycle.
In a later blog, I will explore some of the implications of these definitions, particularly for house systems generally employed by astrologers. Helena Avelar and Luis Ribeiro (2010) On the Heavenly Spheres: A Treatise on Traditional Astrology.
Robert Hand (1982) Essays on Astrology: The Ascendant, Midheaven and Vertex in Extreme Latitudes. Symbols are necessary in astrology to keep the chart diagram from becoming overloaded with too many words. En astrologie, un decan est une subdivision d'un mois associe a un signe, chaque signe est divise en trois decans. Un decan ne correspond pas forcement a une decade etant donne que le mois de fevrier est constitue de 28 ou 29 jours selon qu'il s'agit d'une annee bissextile ou non.
Selon Claude Ptolemee, ce sont les au nombre de 7 qui representent les decans, chaque planete etant representee par une couleur, il est facile de visualiser une etoile a cinq branches dans le zodiaque pour chaque couleur. Le decan fournit donc une information supplementaire pour nuancer le portrait d'un signe et son ascendant, dans le cas ou deux personnes de meme signe et de meme ascendant n'auraient pas les memes comportements, comme dans cet exemple : selon le Tetrabiblos et son tableau des ascendants, une personne nee le 22 mars (Belier) a a comme ascendant le Sagittaire, une autre personne nee le 17 avril (Belier) a a aussi comme ascendant le Sagittaire, mais elles n'auront pas le meme decan, la personne nee le 22 mars a comme decan Mars et la personne nee le 17 avril a comme decan Venus, la personne du 22 mars sera plus nerveuse, plus sportive, plus susceptible que la personne du 17 avril qui sera plus diplomate, plus artistique, plus hesitante selon les caracteristiques des astres particuliers et differents de Mars et Venus. La personne nee le 22 mars est donc influencee par Mars (astre majeur), Jupiter (astre de l'ascendant), Mars (astre du decan).
La personne nee le 17 avril est donc influencee par Mars (astre majeur), Jupiter (astre de l'ascendant), Venus (astre du decan).
Le decan est donc aussi important que l'ascendant puisqu'il accentue ou diminue l'influence de l'astre majeur qui gouverne le signe comme indique dans le tableau des decans de Claude Ptolemee.
Selon les saisons : d'abord avec l'automne qui compte moins de luminosite par le soleil descendant et l'hiver qui compte plus de luminosite par le soleil montant, certains decans comptent moins que 10 jours par decan. Le mois de fevrier ne comptant que 28 jours hors annee bissextile, il ne faut pas s'etonner que le premier decan du signe du Verseau ne compte que 6 ou 7 jours, en tenant compte qu'une journee astrologique va de midi a midi selon le zenith du Soleil, et non de minuit a minuit comme dans le calendrier civil. In English the symbol for Aquarius is Water Bearer, and this represents the expansive open mind of the Fixed Air Sign of Aquarius.

This is a sign that will take some time to warm up to, but once you do, their fixed nature will have them smitten with you for life. But on the upside you can always count on your dependable Capricorn friend to get you out of just about any pickle you should find yourself in. This Mutable Fire Sign then is one that embodies the energy, agility, bravery, and enthusiasm of a skilled archer with fire beneath his arrow. The constellation of Scorpio is in the shape of a scorpio, a mysterious sea creature with a fierce stinger.
Originally however, Libra was a constellation known as “The Claws” that were attached to the Scorpio constellation.
These are the people that are smoothing over fights and drama, and establishing, encouraging, and supporting relationships and partnerships around their Self all of the time. Here is a personality that is injected with fire, and enthusiasm and excitement are always near those born under the Leo star. And Leo likes to be the Sun wherever they go, craving attention, flattery, and good times with great people.
Rules by the Moon this Cardinal Water Sign however is anything but crabby, unless you are the first to strike in battle, then watch out!
Those born under this star sign sometimes seem to have a double personality as a result, and they are always moving from one frame of mind to another very quickly.
It is not often that you will meet a quiet Gemini, as this sign cannot bear boredom, and are very flexible when it comes to rolling with the punches life throws their way. Taurus is a fixed Earth Sign and this makes them the most grounded and loyal friend you will ever have.
Being the boss is a favourite activity for Aries, and those born under this sign love a good challenge that allows them to do just that. Success drives Aries, and Aries certainly has the energy to put forth the action required to see success in every project to the end.
So when any of the karma planets like Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde, it’s always a good time to review the laws of karma, and how to manifest the very definition of karma in your own life.
The only 5 laws of karma you need to know in order to begin manifesting the definition of karma every day in your own life. We welcome you in joining thousands of others who receive quality astrological content provided by our team of passionate astrologers. It is one of the features of the horoscope that has endured over millenia and has been central to astrological practice since classical times. He makes it clear that the horizon used by astrologers when identifying the ascendant is the rational horizon rather than the visible or apparent horizon.
The red arrows running from the zenith to the rational horizon illustrate the zenith distance of ninety degrees that defines this plane. The midheaven or MC is the degree of the ecliptic that has attained its minimum zenith distance during a diurnal cycle, irrespective of its direction in relation to an observer or its height in relation to the horizon.
In this second instance, the ascendant would be defined as the point of intersection between the ecliptic and the rational horizon where the ecliptic moves above the reference plane (the rational horizon). I wish to suggest that a definition of the ascendant using this concept is that it is the point on the ecliptic that has a zenith distance of ninety degrees but has not yet attained its minimum zenith distance during the diurnal cycle. In fact, the ascendant so defined will always be in the eastern half of the rational horizon and the descendant will always be in the western half of the same plane. Note that the coincidence of the plane of the ecliptic and the plane of the rational horizon occurs at zenith distance of ninety degrees. In fact, in both cases, the concept of zenith distance is the only term that needs to be formally employed. This degree will always be coincident with the meridian of the place but the zenith distance of any particular degree on the MC will vary with the latitude of the place. It will, in due course, become the midheaven, but will not do so until it coincides with the meridian of the place and attains its MZD.
The MC and the nonagesimal will only coincide when the first degree of Aries or the first degree of Libra rises, that is, when the equinoctial axis has a zenith distance of exactly ninety degrees. Symbols also help to pinpoint the physical locations of various astrological factors within the picture of the chart. Aquarius may be the least judgmental person you will ever meet, they are also strong seekers of the truth in all experiences. Its original Greek term was Aegocerus, meaning “goat horned”, thus making The Goat the symbol that represents the zodiac sign of Capricorn.
Sagittarius is very smart, and the mutable nature of Sagittarius breathes fire into their thrill for adventure. You never know which way Scorpio is going, but you know you also never want to be on their bad side if they are heading in a different direction than you.
With Scorpio, it’s either big or it isn’t at all, so expect a wild ride and one you will likely remember forever when you ride with a Scorpio. Upon the discovery of the Autumnal Equinox, and the balancing of the seasons with the transition of Fall, the zodiac sign of Libra was also revolutionized. As the Cardinal Air Sign, Libra will be the most charming, intelligent, and sociable person you will ever meet, and ruled by Venus they also embody all of the finer things in life. Virgo is discriminating, grounded, organized, and an excellent leader in their own quiet way. Always on fire in whatever project or relationship they are in, you can always be sure that when a Leo is around, there is never a dull moment. Otherwise however this emotional Water Sign loves and loves deeply, and will be a friend for life if you honor them with the truth. Fixed Signs by nature are very committed to everything they do, and Earth Signs even more so. Taurus is also ruled by Venus, which means they are anything but boring and love spreading beauty, sensuality, and love to those around them wherever they go.
Because once in a while we have a transit from astrology that brings with it many blessings to those whose karma credit scores are the highest.
All zodiac signs can use these now while Jupiter is retrograde, and keep them handy for when Saturn goes retrograde next month. So if your actions and thoughts are negative and grumpy and you are treating the people around you with some attitude, guess what your reactions are going to be? But while you do, fill your life with awesome things, and relish in the principle of just…being. Whether you are waiting for your twin flame or a big promotion in your life, by practicing these 5 simple things you can create the Destiny of your dreams. The ascendant first appeared as an astrological feature in classical Greek horoscopes around 200 BCE (Avelar and Ribeiro, p. For example, in The Revised Waite's Compendium of Natal Astrology, the ascendant is defined as the point of the ecliptic which cuts the eastern horizon (Candlish, p.

His second definition is that the ascendant may be the ascending node of the ecliptic upon the rational horizon. The visible horizon is the horizon available to the observer at the time and place for which the chart is cast. Zenith distance is "the angular distance from the zenith to a point on the celestial sphere, measured along a great circle." (Mitton, p. The two criteria - zenith distance, not yet attained its MZD - are necessary to distinguish the ascendant from the descendant. This is in fact what the ascendant is - the intersection or coincidence of the two planes: the ecliptic and rational horizon. However, the application of direction is neither a necessary nor sufficient condition for the definition of the concept. The rising degree will move from its position on the horizon to the MC during the course of one diurnal cycle and set later at a zenith distance of ninety degrees. When a degree is on the midheaven it is at its closest approach to the zenith during its diurnal cycle. The descendant is the ecliptic degree that has a zenith distance of ninety degrees and has already attained its minimum zenith distance. These Definitions are not in any way definitive: this list is meant to be used as a shortcut for basic understanding.
Like other Water Signs, Pisces is very intuitive, and being ruled by Neptune aids to their dreamy, psychic personality. People born under this zodiac star are often very successful because as Cardinal Signs they are great initiators, motivators, and leaders. As such, Sagittarius does not like to stay put too often, and if required to, expects the experience to be spontaneous and fun. In the Fall, the equality of day and night is discovered, and this is the embodiment of the true Libra personality. You won’t see a lot of drama from a Virgo, but you will see a very careful thinker who always goes through every task with a clear mind, and a laser sharp focus. Whether you are waiting for it to come around to somebody, or to yourself, here are the only 5 laws of karma you need to manifest the very definition of karma in your life, for all zodiac signs! When you show the Universe you know and believe you are the Creator of your Fate, you manifest the definition of karma in your life. Again, some zodiac signs, like the Fixed Signs Scorpio,Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius are really good at just be-ing and focusing on the moment.
And that means, instead of being antsy because your karma reward hasn’t panned out yet, just…be. 416) The great circles in the example of the rational horizon will run through the zenith and nadir. Secondly, the rising degree - or ascendant - is moving from its intersection with the rational horizon towards its intersection with the meridian when it will attain its minimum zenith distance during the day (it will be at is closest approach to the zenith). Likewise, the recourse to above and below is not required and can be dispensed with, as we did for the definition of the midheaven.
Each sign has particular qualities and characteristics which will be expressed through the House that the sign falls in and show you blackjack strategy. Their mutable nature invites them to always be trying out new things, and unfortunately sometimes that means new people as well at a moment’s notice.
When you add those traits to the hardworking and responsible traits of the Earth Signs, you make for a very successful combination.
Though they may not be overly wealthy, Virgo is also very good with money, and knows exactly how to manage whatever resources come their way, so they are rarely in need. You may not even be thinking a single solitary spiritual thought, to experience karma in your day to day life. This is the Golden Rule of every spiritual and religious tenet on this planet, because it works. So if you want to keep your karma credit clean, and only practice one of the laws of karma, make it this one. The distinguishing feature of the descendant is that it is the point on the ecliptic with this zenith distance that has already attained its minimum zenith distance during the diurnal cycle.
Artistic, creative, spontaneous, and romantic are all words that are used to describe the depth that can be found under the Pisces star. It may take you some time to get true love from this down to Earth sign, but once you do, you will have a friend for life. This is the simplest concept in life for all of us, no matter what astrology transit is in play. The area of your life that you need the most miracles in, is the area of your life that you need to own it the most.
It takes practice no matter what zodiac sign you are, and you can start experiencing the rewards of this patience today. 15-16) The rational horizon is a great circle defined by points at a distance of ninety degrees from the zenith, the point immediately above the observer on the celestial sphere. Each planet has its own intrinsic qualities, and represents certain elements of the human experience.
So Jupiter isn’t doing too much work on the karma department this month, but instead is allowing you to go within, and begin the work yourself. The true karma definition is that you correct your own faults, and you can’t do that if you don’t own it. Build connections in your life, between your baby steps, every single day, and you will build your own Trump Tower in time. Saturn is not retrograde yet, but will be come March, so this is a really great time to pick up some karma credit with Saturn until that time. When you do, you send the message to the Universe that you love and accept the here and now, and are ready to see how the Universe responds or reacts.
Drop a note in the comments below sharing your miracle stories of when karma came around and surprised you….in a good way!
But Albert Einstein discovered this rule and law of karma through the scientific principle of relativity. When you do, the road to healing and peace comes faster because this is the truest karma definition of them all.
