Astrological terms

A brief introduction to the terminology used in interpreting the horoscope. Understanding "language" will make the perception of the horoscope more meaningful. Astrologer is a short reference for those who study astrology, and faces unknown terms, concepts. The handbook contains only a brief neutral description of the existing astrological terminology.

What does astrology study?

In life, there are undoubted regularities - the very ones through which the world around us does not break up into parts and even yields to study. We are allowed to interfere in specific manifestations of these patterns, but not to cancel them. For example, the fact that we have learned to overcome the force of attraction under certain conditions does not in any way negate the very existence of this force (otherwise, what would we overcome?).

Astrology is the science of the regularities of being, and not of its causes. In the current form, these regularities are fixed on the celestial sphere, in the variant observed by us from the Earth. Such a medium can not be destroyed or damaged as quickly and thoughtlessly as, say, a disk or a book; his safety is pretty well provided by the Creator. But at any time from it you can consider the state of the solar system and make for yourself from this conclusions the depth and direction that each of us desires.

It can be said, and so: astrology allows you to create a model of the surrounding world, suitable for its holistic knowledge. All astrological "schools", in fact, are versions of the same astrological model of reality. If you disregard their facade and the number of floors, they rest on the same foundation, they are based on the same main "bricks" (the main astrological elements).

Basic astrological elements

Personal horoscope is your most complete and objective psychological characteristic. It is based on data on the location of the Sun, Moon and Planets in the signs of the zodiac at the time of your birth.

It consists of a cosmogram - a map of the core of the personality and a horoscope - a map that determines the alleged manifestation of the "core of personality" in life (society).

The cosmogram is a zodiacal circle on which the locations of the planets are marked with dots, and 30 degrees from each 0 degrees Aries to 30 degrees Pisces are marked with zodiac signs.

The horoscope is a zodiacal circle on which the locations of the planets are marked with dots, each with 30 degrees from 0 degrees Aries to 30 degrees Pisces. Zodiac signs are located, and sectors I through XII are the location of the "houses" on the date of birth.

Karmic Horoscope - shows problems that are not solved in a past life, the consequences of which you are experiencing now. Helps you choose the right path of development, points to the accumulated experience of past lives, relying on which you can move forward to a higher goal.

It shows what you have learned in your past life, and what you must do now in order to become better.

Solarian, Solar horoscope - Solar horoscope for a year (a specific year), gives an idea of ​​the directions of the energies of the planets acting on a person, from one birth to the next and allows more detailed analysis (forecast) for the current year. In what areas of activity will the human beings be favored by the energies of the planets, and in which - not very much. Solar horoscope can be made only on the basis of the natal horoscope (birth horoscope).

Synastry, psychological compatibility of partners - in detail analyzes interaction of psychologies of two people. Analyzes the psychological qualities of men and women in relation to each other, the ability to do this or that kind of activity, and much of what is filled with everyday, full of surprises and surprises life.

In simple terms, it shows the need and need for a man for a woman, and women for a man. What and how will be worked out in the joint relations, so that there will be no mutual reproaches and censures against each other, that "we did not know something." So it's better to know right away, to enter into a relationship with a particular person or not.

The planet is a classical (direct - having a direct movement around the Sun) - this celestial body that revolves around the Sun, has enough mass, so that self-gravitation surpasses solid-state forces and the body can take a hydrostatically balanced (near spherical) shape and cleanse the neighborhood of its orbit .

The planets in our solar system are created from a disk-like mixture of circulating gas and dust, which formed our sun. Since hydrogen gas and dust of the early solar system hit the center of the disk, forming a heated gas-dust mixture similar to a nuclear alloy. At the same time, smaller blocks of dust and gas formed in the outer parts of the disk.

Retrograde planet - having the opposite, "backward" movement around the Sun. In space, all planets move in their orbits always in one direction (direct), without stopping or turning back. But we look at the planets from the Earth, which itself moves. The closer the planet to the Sun, the faster it moves.

Let's remember how we overtake a truck on a car. It seems to us at this time that against the backdrop of a distant forest or other objects, it moves backward (although in fact it goes forward). So with the planets - because of the difference in the periods of revolution around the Sun from the Earth, the motion of the planet can be observed in the opposite direction. In this case, the planet is called retrograde or retrograde. In ephemerides (tables of the position of the planets), the periods of retrograde are indicated by the letter R.

A stationary planet - during the transition from direct movement to retrograde or vice versa, the planet practically stops. This position is called the parking of the planet, and the planet itself is called standing or stationary.

In simple terms, it shows the need and need for a man for a woman, and women for a man. What and how will be worked out in the joint relations, so that there will be no mutual reproaches and censures against each other, that "we did not know something." So it's better to know right away, to enter into a relationship with a particular person or not.

Stellium - (from the Latin stella - "star"), stellarium (Latin stellarium), satellitium (Latin satellitium) - an aspect configuration representing a plural connection of planets, a cluster of planets in one sign of the Zodiac. A number of astrologers call Stellium the union of three or more planets.

The connection of the three planets is called a small stellium, the connection of four or more planets is large. Where there are many planets, there is the focus of action, the attraction of thoughts. "The energy of the connection (stellium) attracts everyone's attention to the person and gives a certain power over people, which in the beginning is very difficult to properly dispose of" - A. Podvodny. The affairs controlled by the positions of these planets in the house and the sign will be in the center of attention in the life of the person. In these cases, a greater willpower, self-awareness and activity will be revealed. With a stellium, not only the house and the sign, in which there is a cluster of planets, but also the opposite sign and the house, is important, since the houses reflect the axial principle, the opposite houses are related by qualities (meaning), but only at different levels.

When analyzing a stellium, it is important to consider all possible combinations of planets of the stellium, at all levels (personality and relationships), considering all the plans for manifestation. People with Stellium in the horoscope are waiting for their stardom. Until the native works Stellium, he will not be able to develop further. Some astrologers call Stellium a group of planets that are in the same sign or house of the horoscope, but do not necessarily form joints with each other. Thus, N.Devor believes that Stellium takes place when five or more planets are in one house or sign and indicates that in the corner house Stellium represents a great volatility of fate, the grief and joy come in time. Such people often have a lot of acquaintances, but a few real dpuzey. In some periods of life, they may be significantly short of recognition.

Proserpine is the farthest transuranium planet, which has enormous dimensions and low reflectivity. It was calculated in 1983, and in 1984 it was opened. The exact parameters of it are unknown. The period of revolution of Proserpine around the Sun is 665 - 675 years.

Microcycle - about 65 years, since 1979 is in the sign of Scorpio. It is believed that Proserpine is responsible for global changes in human life, leading to a complete reorientation, a complete restructuring. It gives the ability to know the World in the smallest detail and detail, connecting them into a single whole, into a system. Proserpine is the spirit, it is the inner transmutation, the alchemy of the human soul.

Lilith - Selena of the point of removal (Apogee, Perigee) from the Earth in the orbit of the Moon, while moving it around the Earth. Identify the two poles of moral and moral qualities of a person. There are:
1) Affect the earliest stages of the formation and development of the essence (conception).
2) Determine the initial psychophysical structure of the future personality.
3) Initial living conditions: place of birth, parents, nationality, etc.
4) Primary unconscious addictions, which, due to their depth and unconsciousness, influence our open motives, our choice and ultimately our destiny.

There are the deepest and unconscious primary links and attitudes in our relations with others, nature, etc. These initial connections are very important. They form the foundation of the personality, the original matrix.

Dispositor - the planet - the ruler of the Sign of the Zodiac, where the Top of the House is located, is the disposer of the planet in this House. That is, a planet in the House of which is another planet, is the dispositor of that planet.

Mars is the dispositor of Venus in Aries, since it controls this sign; Saturn in Capricorn is itself a dispositor, since it controls this sign.

Subdisperser is a planet - the ruler of the degree of the Cusp of the House.

Aspects of planets and cusps of houses - are presented for more advanced in astrology users. Plans make communication with each other on certain accounts, called acicts (distances between planets).

For different planets, there are different orbits (permissible distances) between planets.

The connection of the planets is an aspect of the connection of the planets. Connection of 2 planets - if it is up to 1 degree, for the Sun-3 gr., For the Moon - 2 gr. - is considered accurate. If the planets are in the same degree, then there is a merger - they do not act differently. The greater the distance between them, you can see that they can act separately, they seem to be trying to merge.

The strongest impulse of action goes through the connection. The strongest interactions are born through a connection. This is a great energy, concentration at one point. Strength, energy, action.

If the planet is from the sun at a distance of 3 degrees, then it is considered burned. As a result of an exact connection with the Sun, something new, a synthetic action, arises. The planet in conjunction with the Sun - the world perceives differently, an independent impulse through the Sun. The planet is captured by the energy of the Sun.

Affected planets - in astrology, the affected is a planet that has many tense aspects in the horoscope. A planet with tense aspects always creates difficulties that need to be overcome.

If you have very tense planets in your horoscope, it is believed that certain karmic tasks are set before you. In order for a person to notice these tasks, fate places certain obstacles in his way, overcoming which, the person solves the specified problems.

It happens that a person does not want to solve these problems, or postpones them for later, and then he is surprised - why is he so unlucky in something? Then these unfulfilled tasks are transferred to subsequent incarnations, and your soul is born with an increased burden of problems.

A severe defeat of the planets means that your karmic debts are very high, and some of the obstacles will necessarily be presented in the form of suffering and strong restrictions - physical or moral. But, as they say, everyone is given as much as he can bear.

Therefore, the highly affected planets in the horoscope can symbolize a high soul, which has outlined a great work for itself in this embodiment. And here it depends on the person - to overcome obstacles, to become a high soul, or to break from the failures that he creates for himself.

In any case, the defeat of the planets means an alternative: either work, or suffering and limitations. If the defeat is severe, the restrictions will be mandatory, but the person has certain opportunities to overcome them.

Tense aspects - tense aspects (black) are aspects of conflicts, destruction of the old, dynamics; they require a great deal of effort on the part of a person, but they can be actively developed. There are obvious and hidden tensions.

Explicit strained aspects. Opposition. The strongest aspect, it is formed when the angle between the planets is 180 °. The orbis for luminaries is ± 7 °, for minor planets ± 6 °, for major ± 5 °. If the planets are confronted with an accuracy of 0.5 °, then this is the exact opposition.

The opposition is an obvious major aspect, corresponds to the element of Fire. The opposition gives confrontation, rebellion, a pronounced conflict, puts a person in front of the problem of choice. If the Sun is in opposition to Uranus, then this is a struggle between one's ego and the desire for change, a person is drawn to innovations, reforms, freedom, but the primary self-determination of the Sun in man causes a mutiny, a rift, a conflict that is constantly manifested.

On a man with the Yin cosmogram, this aspect has a serious effect: internal and external discord. Jahn man is in his element, in overcoming opposites, in the struggle he enjoys. If Mars is in opposition to Venus, then there is dissatisfaction in love.

In Stalin, Mars at 13 ° Taurus, Venus at 13 ° Scorpio - hence sadism, especially to women and children. Opposition refers to the ever burning, constantly acting fire, this aspect is constantly acting.

Quadrature. It is formed when the angle between the planets is 90 °. The orbis for the luminaries is ± 6 °, for the minor planets ± 5 °, for the major planets ± 4 °. If the position of the planets is different from 90 ° to 0.5 ° or less, then this is the exact quadrature. The aspect of quadrature in the form of manifestation is discrete, major, intermittent, corresponds to the elements of Air (unsteady element).

The quadrature is an unstable, sudden aspect, manifests itself sharply, in a person forms disturbing feelings, gives conflicts, sudden outbursts of unbalance, tension. A person can do anything in the name of some business, but can easily and unexpectedly get out of the situation.

The square can be perceived by us as a stronger aspect than the opposition (because of the suddenness of manifestation). Opposition gives a stronger result, but quadrature is perceived more strongly because of the unpreparedness of our consciousness to accept an unexpected situation. On quadratures, one can very much live and even live well, although life will proceed in tension.

Hidden tense aspects. The semiquad. It is formed when the angle between the planets is 45 °. Orbis for luminaries ± 1.5 °; for minor planets ± 1 °, for major ± ± 0.7 °. A semiquad - a hidden, minor, tense, discreetly manifested aspect, contributes to the creation of an energy field of a certain medium. This field acts on us destructively, if the planets in the semi-square are not strong. At the same time, through the semi-square one can perceive ideas that "float in the air." This aspect can cause discontent through induction, that is, through a link with the environment (the environment field involves a person in its sphere). In an evil planet, no aspect can be good, good.

Half-square. It is formed when the angle between the planets is 135 °; orbis for luminaries ± 3.5 °, for minor planets ± 3 °, for major ± 2 °. The half-torus corresponds to the elements of the Earth, this is a powerful, minor, but hidden aspect. Half-rootkit gives a secret undermining of the roots, secret hidden blows, return of situations; a person closes at a certain level. In character, a half-cycle gives a secret struggle, the ability to return back to certain problems, a person has a constant internal tension, a sense of inevitability of strikes, which are sometimes perceived as greatly exaggerated.

It's bad when a half-root is connected with evil planets. This gives revenge, persecution, obsessions and phobias, to which a person constantly returns. At best, this is an aspect of a secret, constant struggle, the undermining of unnecessary foundations (among revolutionaries), the aspect of a return to the sources. The more hidden aspects in the cosmogram, the more a person unconscious acts in the life (the moon controls the sphere of the subconscious).

If a tense aspect clearly prevails in the map, it is more likely that it is precisely the tense aspects that will be a source of constructive change in human life (however, the changes themselves will not necessarily go smoothly), and harmonious aspects can simply go unnoticed.

If the dominant aspect is harmonious, then the tense aspects will carry with them only problems, and all positive changes will be determined by harmonious aspects.

Zodiac, the sign of the Zodiac - the cosmic reference system of "solar birth signs," symbolizing life characteristics. The astrological Zodiac is an imaginary circle that travels around the Earth in the plane of the ecliptic. Its first point is 0 degrees Aries, where the circles of the Ecliptic and the Equator intersect. Zodiac signs characterize the Earth's position in space, i.e. the motion of the Earth around the Sun. Signs emit energy, and planets are its amplifiers and transducers. Earth and man on it are the focus of the action of these energies.

For example, the Moon in Libra means that your subconscious will be influenced by the characteristic of the sign of Libra. And if Jupiter is in Cancer, then your character will be affected by the characteristic of the sign of Cancer.

Houses - The sectors of the sky from I to XII, which determine which spheres of life are influenced by the location of the planets.

The houses of the horoscope (their location on the map) depend on the time and place of birth. The location of the planets in the Houses gives a unique individual structure of destiny. The position of the planets in the Signs is the totality of the soul accumulated in the past, and its current Destiny is determined precisely by the position of the planets in the Houses.

Asc - Ascendant - a point rising at the moment of birth on the zodiacal circle, crossing the horizon line. Crossing the ecliptic * with the horizon on the east side. Opposite to Descendant.

IC - Imum Coeli - The depth of the Sky, Nadir is the point of the ecliptic, which at the moment of the birth of the person is in the lower culmination of the ecliptic, that is, the point of intersection of the ecliptic with the celestial meridian from the north side. The term is applied to the cusp of the fourth house. This is the lowest and deepest point of the horoscope. The sun reaches it at midnight. She opposes Zenith.

Dsc - Descendant - entering at the time of birth point on the zodiacal circle, the ecliptic intersection with the horizon on the west side. Opposite to the Ascendant.

Finding a house in any sign means that in this area of ​​life the features of this sign are manifested. For example, the X-th house in Capricorn means that when you reach the goal you show the qualities inherent in the sign of Capricorn. And if the VI-th house, say, in Gemini, then your function will be influenced by the sign of Gemini.

All aspects are conductors of planetary energies. Each aspect has its own specifics of energy transfer. The relationship can be damning when the plans are implemented in the enjoyment of their positive qualities, and the negative, when the planes exacerbate the behavior of their own detrimental properties.

Almuten (lord) is the true ruler of the House. This is the planet that controls the sign, which turned out to be in this House.

A charioteer (Persian Nimodar) after the Sun is a planet that is born after the Sun. protects, supports, the basis, the basis of personal development. The role of such a planet is to direct the development of the Spirit. A charioteer, however, can manifest itself as a decelerating factor that destroys in man the attitudes that impede the development of the Spirit.

It is necessary to evaluate the quality of the planet - the Charioteer, the planet in exile, the fall can manifest as destructive indicators in spiritual development, in life in general. The charioteer shows that the person has already been worked out in the past, which he considers to be a step already passed. This is an incentive for self-assertion of the individual, its support and foundation.

A charioteer is a planet in whose functions a person is least ready to sacrifice in his life. This planet is for him, as it were, an invaluable treasure; it directs the path of the Sun, it carries, on it lies the whole burden of the road ahead. Therefore, this is the gold reserve of each person. This is the trump card in your hands, which you cherish until the last moment. This is something that is very difficult for a person to take away.

Doriforii - (Persian Serdar) in front of the Sun, scout, morning star, spearman, "clears the way", stimulates the development of personality, a planet rising just before sunrise.

Planet Doriforii shows, through which (the functions of the planet) manifested creative and spiritual potential, what is the direction of development and self-expression of the individual. Sometimes it is such a planet that determines the theme of a person's psychological complexes.

Dorifory in natal charts was used as one of the main significators of activity, to which the native is naturally inclined. In particular, it was used in career counseling. In the modern world, this value of Doriphoria is leveled.

The possibility (and often the need) of a repeated change of profession throughout life, the need to be socially in demand more than realizing natural inclinations, has led to the fact that modern astrology takes Doriforium into account only as an auxiliary factor in relation to the significators of the house. Many modern authors do not take into account the Squire (Doriforium) as a special factor in the natal chart.

Also, Dorifory is considered in modern karmic and esoteric astrology. In this vein, he is often credited with the first natural way of responding to new circumstances, in fact, a way of interacting with new experiences before realizing it. This is a planet of creative spontaneous combustion and the greatest risk.

It is believed that if there are mirrors in the cosmogram of the Corridor, a person can clean up many of the problems of his life with a simple prayer. The main thing is to be in the natural process of life, and then there may be an additional way out, unavailable for the desecration of Angra Manyu.

The absence of planets provides an excellent opportunity to correct fate. A person can erase through the signs of the Corridor of mirrors all his criminal past, and if necessary, then the whole biography. The corridor of mirrors can serve as an emergency exit in any life situation.

A person who does not have a Corridor of mirrors does not have an "emergency" exit. His life can be filled with vanity in all directions, and with all he has to cope on his own.

Radix is a horoscope of birth or a horoscope of birth, or the so-called natal horoscope (natal chart) compiled at the time of birth of the cardholder.

Vertex and Antivertex - Vertex and Antivertex - personal points used in Uranic astrology.

In astrological practice Vertex was introduced by the American astrologer Lorne Edward Johndrom. Vertex (VX) and strictly opposite Antivertex (AVX) are the points of intersection of the ecliptic with another plane of the horizontal system (namely, with the first vertical). That is, Antivertex is that point of the ecliptic, which is strictly in the East from the place of birth, and Vertex is the point that is strictly in the West.

The outer planets are the planets of the solar system, the larger semiaxes of whose orbits are larger than the semimajor axis of the Earth's orbit. The outer planets are: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto.

Inner planets are planets with larger semiaxes of orbits greater than the semimajor axis of the Earth. The outer planets are: Mercury, Venus.

Water - one of the four elements (fire, earth, air, water), through which the signs are classified. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are signs of water, they form a water triplicity. In astrology, water means emotions, imagination, sensitivity and spirituality.

Sunrise is the moment when the heavenly body, rising, crosses the horizon plane.

Ascending sign (ascendant) - the sign of the zodiac, rising on the eastern horizon at the time of birth. Ascending sign (ascendant) characterizes the external approach of the native to life. (See the Ascendant)

Enemies (antipodes) are planets that are the rulers of the opposite signs of the zodiac.

World time - (world or Greenwich): the average solar time on the Greenwich meridian.

Height - the angle on the celestial sphere between the horizon and a given point.

Galaxy - from the Greek. gala, pn galaktos - "milk", giant star systems, the largest of known include up to 10-13 trillion stars. In addition to stars, the structure of galaxies includes interstellar dust and gas clouds and scattered interstellar matter. According to the morphological features of galaxies are divided into spiral (to this also includes "our" Galaxy), elliptical, including spherical, and irregular (nebulae). The galaxy (ours) is a star system containing about 200 billion stars, one of them, small, unremarkable, on the periphery of the system is our Sun. The projection of the Galaxy on the celestial sphere, its kind of "from the edge" is called the Milky Way.

Heliocentric - (from the Greek words "helios" and "kentron", meaning "sun" and "center." Observed or measured from the center of the Sun. Since the death of the astronomer Nicholas Copernicus (that is since 1543), the heliocentric concept is dominant, according to which The sun is the center of our solar system, Astrology arose much earlier, when geocentric views dominated.As astrology is interested in the motion of celestial bodies relative to terrestrial observers, it continues to use geo entricheskoy scheme However, many astrologers use heliocentric card -. usually in combination with geocentric was widespread heliocentric ephemeris..

Geographic longitude is the distance on the Earth's surface, measured in degrees from the initial meridian, whose longitude is 0 degrees. The initial meridian (also called Greenwich) is a vertical line running from the north pole to the south via the English city of Greenwich. It has a longitude of 0 degrees. New York is located at 74 degrees west longitude, Tokyo - at 140 degrees east longitude. Longitude determines the difference in time; 15 degrees are equivalent to 1 hour. When in Greenwich noon, in New York 7 am, and in Tokyo - 9 pm.

Geographic latitude is the distance to the north or south of the equator of the Earth, measured in degrees. On maps the latitude is marked with the help of horizontal parallels. The latitude of the equator is 0 degrees, the north pole is 90 degrees north, the south pole is 90 degrees south latitude. To compile an accurate birth chart for an astrologer, it is necessary to know the latitude and longitude of the place where the person was born.

Geocentric - (from the Greek words "ge" and "kentron", meaning "earth" and "center" respectively.) Observed or measured from the center of the Earth. In classical astrology, the Earth is regarded as the center of the universe in view of the fact that it is the center of human experience. Therefore, the positions and motion of celestial bodies are determined from the point of view of the terrestrial observer. As a rule, horoscopes are geocentric maps, although some modern astrologers also work with heliocentric maps.

Hermetic theory - the roots of this doctrine are related to the ancient Egyptian concept, according to which man is a miniature likeness of the cosmos, and all elements of nature have their analogues in man. The Hermetic theory of "man in the microcosm" has generated a variety of correspondences associated with the signs of the zodiac: each sign controls a part of the body, a certain plant, herbs, flowers, cities and animals. The Hermetic theory underlies such predictive arts as palmistry and physiognomy.

The main star is the brighter component of a double star.

Glyph is a graphic symbol of the planet or sign of the zodiac. Glyph has a symbolic meaning; for example, the circle means the spiritual world; the semicircle symbolizes the soul, and the cross - the material world.

Horoscope - (from the Greek words "chorus" and "skopos", meaning "hour" and "observer" respectively) A map of the sky, more precisely, of its part, called the zodiac, where the positions of the Sun, Moon and planets are indicated for a given time and place on the Earth. The word "horoscope" also means the analysis and interpretation of this map. Horoscope often called published in the press predictions.

Gravitation (gravity) - the force of mutual attraction, acting between any two bodies; its magnitude is directly proportional to the product of the masses of the bodies and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Degree - a unit of measurement of angles and arcs, equal to 1/360 of a circle. Each sign of the Zodiac contains 30 degrees.

The Greenwich meridian is the half of a large circle on the surface of the Earth passing through the North and South Pole, as well as the starting point in Greenwich (England). The longitude of this meridian is taken as 0 degrees.

The descendant is one of the four corners of the horoscope (the four most important points of the map). The descendant, indicating the top of the seventh house, is located in the birth chart exactly opposite the ascendant. The descendant reflects the realization of energy through partnerships and relationships; the planets in or around the descendant indicate that a person can achieve a high position through his connections.

The long (direct) ascension signs are signs of the Zodiac, the time of their rising is more than two hours. In the northern hemisphere of the Earth the signs of a long ascent: Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius.

Longitude - angular coordinate, measured in the main plane from a given direction; for example: ecliptic longitude, galactic longitude. On Earth, geographical longitude is measured along the equator. Ecliptic longitude can be measured either relative to the center of the Earth (geocentric), or relative to the center of the Sun (heliocentric).

At home - twelve parts of a horoscope representing different spheres of life. There are the following houses: First House of Personality, Second House of Money and Property, Third Communion House, Fourth House of Origins and Home Life, Fifth House of Pleasure, Creation and Sex, Sixth House of Service and Health, Seventh House of Partnership and Marriage, Eighth House death and rebirth, Ninth House of Mental Studies and Long-distance Travels, Tenth House of Careers and Public Status, Eleventh House of Friends, Hopes and Desires, Twelfth House of Secrets, Sorrow and Self-sacrifice.

If the general concept of houses does not raise objections, then an estimate of their number gives rise to disagreements. For example, the famous Irish astrologer-siderealist Cyril Fagan uses eight houses instead of twelve. The division of houses is the subject of heated debate. In modern astrology, there are at least twenty systems of houses. The most common systems include Placida, Koch, Campano, Regiomontan, Morin, peer houses, and topocentric. This book uses a system of equal houses. It has such an advantage as simplicity, is applicable for most of the world's latitudes and is the oldest.

Houses of Fall (Cadent, final) - (from the Latin word "kadere", meaning "fall") Four houses in the horoscope, located directly behind the middle (succed, next) houses. One of the variants of the name is connected with the fact that these houses follow the angular and average. The houses of the fall are the third, sixth, ninth and twelfth. The planets in these houses indicate the activity of the mind and the capacity for self-expression.

Eclipse is the passage of the Moon through the shadow of the Earth (the lunar eclipse) or parts of the Earth's surface through the lunar shadow (solar eclipse). If during the largest phase of the eclipse, the moon or the sun is only partly closed, then this is a partial eclipse, if completely - then this total eclipse. If during the solar eclipse the Moon closes the central part of the solar disk, leaving the ring on its edge visible, then this is an annular eclipse.

Eclipses - in ancient times eclipses were often perceived as a universal catastrophe. Already in Ancient Babylon and China, the predictions of eclipses were the most important task. Careful observations of eclipses led to the discovery of a cycle of their recurrence - Saros. Lunar eclipse is the phenomenon of the Moon's immersion into the cone of the Earth's shadow, while the Earth is on a straight line connecting the Sun and the Moon. The duration of the eclipse is several hours. Solar eclipse is a phenomenon of a short-term obscuration of the disk of the Moon by the disk of the Sun, when the cone of the moon's shadow falls to the surface of the Earth. There are eclipses full, in the maximum phase of which the entire disk of the Sun is closed by the Moon, as well as eclipses are partial, incomplete and annular. The duration of a total eclipse is several minutes. In predictive astrology, it is believed that the eclipse concerns the fate of those countries and regions in the territory of which its shadow passes.

Sunset is the moment when the heavenly body crosses the horizon plane, moving from top to bottom.

The Star of the Magi is a seven-pointed star that determines the order of the planets in the days of the week, degrees, deans, etc.

The sign of the Zodiac is a unit of measurement of longitude in the zodiacal coordinate system, equal to 30 °. Each sign has its own name and symbol.

Zodiac signs (astrological signs) are twelve 30-degree parts of the zodiac, namely: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. Signs of the zodiac are generated by a strip of constellations, along which there is a visible annual movement of the Sun around the Earth.

Zodiac - (from the Greek word "zodiakos", which means "circle of animals") A narrow strip of sky, encircling the Earth and divided into twelve signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. These signs are associated with the twelve same-name constellations (groups of stars) within this narrow band (the zodiac), but the signs are not identical to the constellations. If the constellations differ in size, then all the signs of the zodiac are the same segments 30 degrees wide each and making up a total 360 degree circle. The middle of the zodiac is the visible path of the Sun, or the ecliptic. The orbits of the Sun, the Moon and all planets, except Pluto, lie inside the zodiac.

The zodiacal circle is a belt on the celestial sphere, consisting of 12 signs of the Zodiac.

Zoroastrianism - (Avestanism, Mazdaism) is an Iranian religion founded by Zoroaster (Zarathushtra). Her supreme deity is Ahura-Mazda, the sacred book is Avesta, according to legend, narrated by Ahura-Mazda through her prophet Zoroaster.

Calendar is a system of calculating days in a year. In the Julian calendar, introduced by Julius Caesar, the year consists of 365 days, and every fourth of 366. The Gregorian calendar, introduced by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582 (and adopted in England from 1752), is one of the widely used today. His introduction eliminated the mistakes of the Julian calendar, removing the extra three days every four centuries. If the year number is a multiple of 100, it is considered a leap one only if its number is divided by 400.

Cardinality is one of the three qualities that the signs of the zodiac possess. These qualities are cardinality, fixity and mu- tability. Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, they form a cardinal quadruplicity. Entering the Sun in these four signs means the beginning of a new season: spring, summer, autumn and winter.

Birth chart - (natal chart) A map of the sky, also called a horoscope, depicting the location of celestial bodies at the time of birth. The terms "horoscope" and "birth chart" are often used as synonyms, although, strictly speaking, a horoscope can refer to any point in time, and a birth chart - only at the time of birth. In the birth chart, the ascendant is a sign rising on the eastern horizon at the moment of human birth (in the solar map, instead of the ascendant, the sign of the Sun is used). Also, the ascending sign is the first house in the birth chart, and therefore the houses in the map are called natal.

The quintile is the creative aspect, equal to 72 °.

Classical astrology is a traditional European astrology, based on the works of Ptolemy, Firm Materna, Morena.

Local determination is the finding of a planet in any field.

The moon is an astronomically-natural satellite of the Earth, the celestial body closest to the Earth, the brightest night luminary. On the new moon, the brightness of the moon is 2500 times greater than the maximum brightness of Venus. The average distance from the Earth is 380 thousand km, the complete revolution around the Earth and around the axis coincide, which is why only one side of the Moon is always visible. It shines with the reflected light of the Sun. The phases of the Moon are explained by the revolution around the Earth. The main phases are four - the new moon, the first quarter (the right half of the lunar disc is visible), the full moon and the last, or the third quarter (when the left half of the disc is visible). From the new moon to the full moon, the moon is called growing, after full moon - decreasing.

The waning moon is visible at the end of the night in the early morning in the east, and the young crescent of the Moon - in the west, just after the sun sets. Mythologically - the traditions of the Moon are as diverse as its faces in the sky. In ancient mythology, Selena is the goddess of femininity, Demeter, symbolizing a caring mother. Artemis, the goddess of hunting, a symbol of virginity and innocence is a young, growing Moon. After the first quarter - Hera, the goddess of motherhood, marriage, keeper of the hearth. From the full moon to the third quarter - Proserpine, Persephone, Aida's wife, Pluto, daughter of Demeter, the queen of the underworld symbolizing transformation, rebirth, magic.

The sign of the Moon is associated with emotionality, spontaneous and unconscious reactions, and often with the hidden side of personality. In the zodiac, the Moon controls Cancer.

Lunar is an astrological map calculated at the time of the return of the Moon to its natal position.

Lunation - the connection between the Sun and the Moon or, in other words, the new moon. Lunation is also a period between two new moons, equal to about 29 days. Modern astrologers often use this term, referring to the new moon, indicating in the horoscope the beginning of the cycle.

The lunar revolution is (lunar return) the horoscope of the individual, compiled at the moment when the Moon returns to the position that it occupied at the time of birth. The Moon revolution is used to forecast trends and events for the next month.

Moon houses - the division of the zodiac into 28 (sometimes 27) parts, based on the 28-day lunar cycle (its exact duration is 27,32166 days). Initially, lunar houses were used in the astrology of the eastern world - Indian, Chinese, Arabic. Eastern astrology ("Children of the Moon") is based on the lunar cycle, and the western ("Children of the Sun") - on the sunny.

The lunar calendar is a calendar system based on the lunar month.

Lunar day (lunar day) - it is more correct to call lunar days. The lunar month consists of twenty-nine or thirty lunar days, not always equal in duration. The first lunar day begins with the moment of joining the Sun / Moon (new moon) and continues until the first moonrise after the new moon. The first and last lunar day in its magnitude can be both within a sunny day, and within a few minutes. The moment of the moon's rise and the beginning of the lunar day depends on the geographic coordinates of the observer. Note: if the beginning of the lunar days depends on the geographic coordinates of the observer, then the time of the coming of the New Moon, the Full Moon, the transition of the Moon into the sign of the Zodiac does not depend on them.

The remaining lunar days (they can be 29 or 30) last from one moonrise to the next, and amount to about 22-26 hours. The lunar day does not coincide with the sunny days, and can begin at any time, but always with the rising moon in the morning and in the afternoon, and with the decreasing moon in the evening and at night.

Thus, the first lunar day begins, and the thirties end at the time of the new moon, and the other lunar days are counted in time between the rising and setting of the moon.

The moon without course , the idle moon, the idling of the moon, the moon in free care - all these terms mean that the moon is in a state where it does not form any major aspect to the planets until it leaves the sign of the zodiac and passes into the following. In astrology it is believed that this occurs approximately every 2.5 days.

The mage is the name of the members of the Greek caste in Media, later the Zoroastrian priests. In Greece and Rome so called, often mixing with the Chaldeans, people committed to Eastern cults and teachings, including - astronomy and Babylonian astrology.

Although modern astrology does not engage in practical healing, the connection between it and the human body dictates how to maintain health.

The meridian is half of a large circle of the celestial sphere, starting at the North and ending at the South Pole. On Earth, the meridian is a line of constant longitude. On the celestial sphere, the meridian passing through the zenith is called the celestial meridian, or the meridian of the observer.

Meridian - a line in the horoscope, running from north to south and dividing it into the left and right sides. The meridian connects the middle of the sky and the celestial depth in the birth chart.

Mercury is the first planet from the Sun. Night abode in Gemini, the daily abode in Virgo. Exaltation in Virgo. Fall in Pisces, Expulsion in Sagittarius and in Pisces. Friendship - gets along with everyone. This does not mean the opposite: Venus-feelings do not like Mercury-mind because he brings rationality into her actions and does not allow to turn around. Enmity - with anyone. Astronomically - the closest to the Sun and the fastest planet. Periods favorable for his observations are quite rare because of the proximity of the Sun.

Local stellar time is the time interval from the moment of the top culmination of a point on the local meridian up to a given time, expressed in units of stellar time.

The month is the time that is required for the moon to complete one complete revolution in its orbit. For the draconic month, the ascending node is taken as the reference point; its length is 27.2122 mean solar days. The sidereal month is measured relative to the stars and lasts for 27.3217 mean solar days. The sun is used as a reference point for the synodic month lasting 29.5306 mean solar days, and perigee - for an anomalistic month, with a duration of 27.5546 average solar days.

Meteorological astrology - or natural astrology (natural, natural) - originally engaged in weather and agricultural signs associated with the visibility of stars and other celestial phenomena. Subsequently - the totality of astrological knowledge and methods needed to compose horoscopes.

World (mundial) astrology is a section of astrology that estimates and predicts world events, politics, and cultural trends with the help of planetary cycles.

Mythological - Mars, Mawors, Marspeter - one of the oldest Italic gods. He was consecrated month of March - the first month of the ancient calendar, in which the year began from the day of the vernal equinox. At various times, Mars was considered the patron of fertility and vegetation, farming, fields and herds, wildlife. The identification of Mars and the Greek god of war Ares occurred in a rather late period and was more inherent in literature than religion.

In Hellas, the myth explained the origin of this strip of milk, which sprinkled from Hera's chest. The Romans used both the Greek name and their own - "The Royal Heavenly Path." The current name of the Milky Way came from the confusion of these names. Astrology uses only a segment of the Path in the vicinity of the constellations of Sagittarius and Scorpio, called the Burned Road or the Burned Way (Via Combusta). Its center is the star of Antares, the ecliptic area of ​​the Burned Path stretches for 10 degrees in both directions from the center. In the region of the constellations of Sagittarius and Capricorn, the brightness of the milky way increases noticeably, since it is in this direction that the center of our Galaxy lies. Due to precession, the position of the Burned Path in the Zodiac is constantly changing - by 1 degree in 72 years. In astrology it is considered, that finding a planet in the area of ​​the Burned Path weakens the planet. The Natal Moon is considered to be affected, located near the Moon Nodes, in an eclipse.

Men's signs are the signs of the zodiac, belonging to the triplicates of fire and air, namely: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius. In astrology, masculine signs are considered energetic, oriented toward the external world, their power is realized through action.

Mundane or astrology prediction is engaged in research processes occurring in states, that is, the object of consideration is the state. Horoscope compiled according to the rules of mundane astrology allows you to predict events at the state level: financial crashes, crises, coups, favorable periods for investment, starting negotiations, loans, loans, a change of government and many other issues related to government.

Mutuality is one of the three qualities by which signs are classified. The other two are cardinality and fixity. To a mutable quadruplicite are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. In astrology, mutability means adaptability, versatility, flexibility, readiness for change.

The inclination of the orbit is the angle between the plane of the orbit and the plane of the ecliptic.

The inclination of the ecliptic is the angle between the plane of the ecliptic and the plane of the equator.

Natal astrology is the most famous, is engaged in the study of all that is related to man and his destiny. The temperament of a person, his distinctive character traits, intellect, talents, inclinations, interests, financial opportunities, social position, which the maximum person can achieve in this life, the way of his earthly and spiritual development, professional and creative possibilities, is determined by the natal chart (horoscope of birth) , the presence of family and children, obstacles, problems at its ways, extreme events and more.

The natal chart (horoscope) is an astrological map compiled at the time of the birth of a person or the birth of a process.

Heaven's depth - (another name is Imum Coeli, the corresponding abbreviation is IC) One of the four corners of the horoscope (the four most important points). The sky depth, coinciding with the top of the fourth house, is located in the map exactly opposite the middle of the sky. Heavenly depth is associated with the origins and psychological roots of man: parents, home life, all inherited from previous generations. Planets located in or near the celestial depth indicate an unconscious motivation for actions.

The heavenly sphere is an imaginary sphere of arbitrarily large radius, usually centered on the Earth. It is convenient to assume that the stars are located on the surface of this sphere.

The celestial equator is the projection of the earth's equator onto the celestial sphere.

A stationary position is the position of the planet preceding the beginning or completion of the retrograde motion. At this point, she seems frozen. Like the retrograde movement itself, the immobility of the planet is an optical illusion connected with the earthly point of observation. Fixed planets in the birth chart are considered to have a very strong influence (see Direct and retrograde movements)

Neptune - [lat. Neptunus] is the eighth largest planet from the Sun. Abode - Pisces, Sagittarius. Exaltation - Aquarius; according to other sources - Cancer. The Fall is the Lion; according to other sources - Capricorn. Exile - Virgo, Gemini. Friendship - with anyone: busy with their illusions, friends do not need. Enmity - with Uranus, violating his plans; with Saturn, which does not allow all to smear and dissolve; and with Mars, forcing him to move from fruitless dreams to action. Astronomical significance - was discovered because of strong perturbations in the movement of Uranus. His position was estimated by astronomers Frenchman Jean Urben Leverrier and Englishman John Kuch Adam. Leverrier reported the calculated position of the planet to the German astronomer Johann Gottfried Halle, and that September 23, 1846 found it in the sky. The name of the planet is given - according to the ancient tradition of naming the planets - in honor of the god Neptune. Observation is possible only through a strong telescope. The orbit is close to circular, the time of revolution around the Sun is 164 years and 285 days.

Mythological significance is Neptune (the Greeks have Poseidon) - the god-lord of the seas and reservoirs, the son of Saturn and Rhea, the brother of Jupiter and Pluto. Together with Uranus belongs to the ancient generation of gods, personifying the primary ocean, chaos, in which all possibilities are laid, but nothing has been shown yet. Astrological significance - is regarded as the highest octave of Venus and the Moon, sometimes - as a synthesis of both of them. Symbolizes the world of mysticism, higher love, the ocean of dreams, creative imagination. Neptune-Poseidon is that primary ocean from which the land emerged.

Circumpolar stars - whose angular distance from the North or South Pole is so small that they never go beyond the horizon.

Opposition is a strong adverse aspect, equal to 180 °.

One of the main aspects, formed when two or more planets are separated by 171-189 degrees. According to the traditional point of view, this is an inharmonious aspect, bringing tension and conflicts. According to the modern point of view, he also provides incentives for growth and achievement of the goal, since the native has to solve problems and thus to acquire maturity.

Orbis - (influence orbis) An angular tolerance within which an aspect is considered strong. For example, trine is an aspect where the planets are separated by 120 degrees. Orbis has a width of 9 degrees to either side of 120 degrees. Thus, the trine takes place at an angular distance between the planets from 111 to 129 degrees.

Orbit is a path in the space along which the celestial body moves under the influence of the gravitation of another body.

The trajectory of a celestial body revolving around another celestial body. In our solar system, the Earth and planets rotate in their orbits around the Sun. The orbit of the Earth is called the ecliptic. Also, the ecliptic is the path through which the Sun moves around the Earth, although in fact the Earth moves around the Sun.

Orion is a bright constellation of the equatorial belt of the celestial sphere. In Greek mythology, Orion is a giant hunter from Boeotia, who brought upon himself the wrath of Artemis and therefore died. According to Ptolemy, the bright stars on the shoulders of Orion act like Mars and Mercury, and the other bright stars are like Jupiter and Saturn.

Osculating elements are elements that describe the elliptical orbit of a given body if all perturbations instantly disappeared. Since perturbations constantly distort the orbit of any body of the solar system, the osculating elements are constantly changing.

A parabolic orbit is an orbit on which the velocity of motion at each point is equal to the escape velocity.

Parallax - the value by which the visible position of the celestial object is shifted as the observation point changes.

Parallel - occurs when two planets reach the same declination or ecliptic latitude. Has a favorable nature, similar to the aspect of the connection.

Pars Fortune - the point of happiness in the horoscope.

The ashen light of the moon is a dark part of the lunar disk, illuminated by light reflected from the Earth, and therefore visible only under favorable conditions.

Variable horoscopes - horoscopes, which are compiled taking into account the natal horoscope, take into account the symbolic or natural movement of the planets after the moment of birth.

Perigee is the nearest to Earth point of near-earth orbit.

Perigelium is the point of the near-solar orbit closest to the Sun.

Perseus is a constellation in the northern hemisphere of the sky. In Greek mythology, Perseus is the hero who killed Gorgon Medusa and liberated Andromeda. According to Ptolemy, the stars of the constellation influence Jupiter and Saturn, and the nebula in the sword hilt (Kapul) is like Mars and Mercury.

The planet is a body moving in a closed orbit around the star. In the solar system, large planets are (in order of increasing distance from the Sun) Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto.

Planet (From the Greek word "planetet", which means "wanderer") A heavenly body revolving around the Sun and not a comet or a meteor. Even in ancient times, people noticed that the planets move in the sky with respect to fixed stars. In astrology, the planets are also called the Sun and the Moon (their traditional name is the luminaries). In classical astrology, seven planets are considered: the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn. Modern astrology also takes into account the three new planets discovered in the last two centuries: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Each planet controls one or two characters. Astrology is based on the idea that the motion of the planets is essentially associated with events in the life of a person, his personality and behavior. Horoscope - a map in which the position of the planets at a given time.

Pleiades - in translation from Greek - "wild pigeon" - a star cluster in the constellation of Taurus, where seven stars can be seen with the naked eye, the position is about 0 degrees Gemini. In the Greek mythology of the Pleiades there are seven daughters of Pleione and Atlanta: Alcyone, Keleno, Electra, Taiget, Maya, Sterop and Merope. In astronomy, the traditionally somewhat distinct pronunciation of some of these names: Alcyone, Celenus, Astero and Mirop.

Astronomical significance - the ninth planet of the Solar System, was discovered on January 21, 1933 (according to other sources - in February 1932) by the American astronomer Clyde William Tombaugh. When choosing the name, the role played also the fact that the first two letters of the god's name coincide with the initials of Percival Lovell, who was engaged in the prediction of the possible coordinates of the planet and its searches. The circulation time is 247 years and 7 months. The luminosity corresponds to a star of the fifteenth magnitude and is only visible in very strong telescopes. Pluto's companion is Charon, a boatman in the kingdom of Hades. Visibility - observed only in a strong telescope. Mythological significance - Pluto - the lord of the underworld, the son of Saturn and Rhea, the brother of Jupiter and Neptune, the husband of Proserpine.

His positive influence is manifested in the personalities of the great leaders, and negative in dictators, gangsters and murderers.

Noon is the moment when the Sun crosses the heavenly meridian.

Full Moon is the phase of the Moon, in which the entire illuminated side of the Moon is visible from the Earth. At this time, the Moon is in opposition to the Sun, and the moment of its rising (approach) approximately coincides with the moment of sunset (Sunrise), so that the Moon is visible all night. Especially important is the full moon spring - the first full moon after the vernal equinox, since it is used to calculate the date of the Christian Easter.

Semi-conduit (dome) - two heavenly hemispheres are distinguished - North and South. They are limited by the Equator, in the Northern Hemisphere there is the North Pole of the world, in the Southern Pole, respectively, the South Pole.

Polusekstil - a synonym for sevensextiles. Weak, favorable aspect, equal to 30 °.

One of the small aspects that occurs when two or more planets are separated in a birth chart by a distance of 28-32 degrees. It is considered weakly favorable, much less strong than sextile.

The penumbra is the outer part of the shadow, from the celestial body in which the light source is only partially closed.

The hemispheric accent - the horoscope is divided into four parts - upper and lower (southern and northern), as well as left and right (eastern and western) hemispheres. The predominance of planets in the upper hemisphere indicates extrovertedness, and in the lower one - about introvertness. The predominance of planets in the left hemisphere emphasizes the impact of man on the outside world, and the predominance of planets in the right hemisphere is the impact of the external world on man.

The pole is the point of the sphere in which it intersects the perpendicular through the center of the plane of this large circle. In each case, there are two poles, called north and south for short. For example, the pole of the ecliptic or the pole of the equator.

Fields (houses) - a coordinate system similar to the signs of the Zodiac, based on the daily movement of the Earth around its axis. Tied to the moment and place of birth.

Polar distance is the angle on the celestial sphere, measured from the pole of the world.

Polarity - a group of two astrological signs, opposing each other in the zodiac; for example, Aries and Libra make up the polarity. Also, polarity is an opposing sign; for example, Aquarius - the polarity of the Lion.

Timezone correction is the number of hours that must be added or subtracted from Greenwich time in order to obtain the time of the day.

World time is the time within the time zone, where it remains unchanged (360 ° = 24 hours, 1 hour = 15 °).

Progressive horoscope - variable horoscope, built according to the rules of progressive movement of the horoscope points.

A map compiled for a specific date in the future and used together with a birth chart to predict and evaluate future events and trends. The most common formula was "day after year," according to which a horoscope is prepared for a date that is separated from the birthday by as many days, for how many years the year of interest is from the year of birth.

Confrontation is a configuration in which two celestial objects occupy opposite points in the sky relative to the observer. Opposition is also called a situation in which the longitudes of objects differ by 180 degrees.

Direct ascent - in the equatorial coordinate system, the angle measured from the point of the vernal equinox in the equatorial plane in the direction of south-east-north-west.

Progressive movement of the planet in orbit through the signs of the zodiac. Direct movement is normal for the planet. However, in some periods it may seem that the planet is moving backward, that is, retrograde. Retrograde motion of the planet is an optical illusion connected with the Earth observation point.

Ptolemy - the scientist of universal knowledge, astronomer, astrologer, mathematician and geographer, lived from 90 to 160 years. Probably a native of Ptolemais in Middle Egypt. He worked in Alexandria Egyptian. His writings had a tremendous impact on all subsequent astronomy and astrologers. Developed Synastries (astrological compatibility) and multifactor calculation of ephemerides. He laid the foundations of scientific astrology. The main work - Almagest, served as the foundation of astronomy until the end of the Middle Ages, and its world system was used up to Copernicus. He left a harmonious theory of the interconnection between the microcosm and the macrocosm - the theory of the connection and interaction of cosmic and terrestrial principles in terrestrial life.

Equinox is the moment when the Sun crosses the celestial equator. This occurs around March 21, when the right ascension of the Sun is zero (the vernal equinox), and around September 22, when its right ascension is 12h (autumn equinox). The equinoxes on the celestial sphere lie on the line of intersection of the equator and the ecliptic.

From the Latin word meaning "night, equal to the day." Two moments of the year when the Sun moving across the ecliptic crosses the celestial equator. The duration of the day is equal to the length of the night. The spring equinox occurs when the sun enters the sign of Aries; at this time the Sun crosses the celestial equator, moving from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere. Autumnal equinox occurs when the Sun enters the sign of Libra; At this time, the Sun crosses the celestial equator, moving from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere.

Radix (radix map) - (lat. Radix - the beginning, the source) - the birth horoscope.

A radius vector is a segment that connects the main focus to the point at which the body is in motion in its orbit.

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac through which the Sun passes annually from about June 21 to July 22. Cancer refers to the elements of water, it is a cardinal sign.

Retrograde motion is the motion of the planet, which is apparent from the point of view of the earthly observer, the reverse of the natural movement.

Apparent recurrent movement of the planets along the zodiac. (The Sun and the Moon are never retrograde.) In fact, the planets of our solar system never move backward in their orbits; Retrograde motion is an illusion connected with the earthly point of observation. This optical illusion is analogous to what happens when you look from the window of a moving train to another train that is slower than yours. It seems to you that the second train is moving back, although in reality it is not this way. In classical astrology, the influence of retrograde planets was considered weak and negative. Modern astrologers consider the influence of these planets to be positive, but manifested only at later stages of life.

Monastery daytime - Capricorn, night - Aquarius. Exaltation - Scales; according to other sources - Pisces. Fall - Aries, according to other sources - Virgo. Exile - the Lion and the Cancer. Friendship with Mars. Enmity - with all other planets.

The number is 7. The astronomical value is the seventh planet of the Solar System (counting Phaethon), the distance from the Sun is 9.54 astronomical units or 1.43 billion km. The circulation period is 29.46 years; diameter is 9.5 times the diameter of the Earth. The first of the planets around which the rings were opened. In the Saturn system, there are three main belt rings and 17 satellites. Mythological significance is one of the oldest Italic gods. Etymologically associated with the root sat (sow), which gave rise to the interpretation of Saturn as the patron of crops and seeds. Around the 3rd c. BC. e. began to be identified with Kron (Kronos), devouring their children. The name of the latter due to the similarity of sounding - Kronos and chronos ("time") - led to the interpretation of Saturn as an inexorable time, absorbing what itself gave rise; or as a seed, returning to the land that gave birth to it. On the other hand, under the influence of the same ideas about Krona, Saturn began to be revered as the god of the golden age and one of the first kings of Latium, where he fled, deposed by his son Zeus (Jupiter), and where he was received by the ruling Janus. Saturn taught his subjects farming, viticulture and civilized life. Astrological meaning - symbolizes experience, verification, the passage of time, and patience. He is called the planet of destiny. A planet of debt, scarcity, hard work, realism. Also - the principle of limitation, collapse, because it is Saturn that restricts any expansion, imparts a rigid form, a framework. It is viewed both as past experience and as tasks to be solved.

With a "good" Saturn, a person slowly, but surely, achieves the goal. The relative energy of Saturn emits Capricorn. The impact of Saturn is not so much an individual as a collective one, because it is in the same sign for about 2.5 years and indicates the general that is characteristic of people born in this or that period. In the astrology of individual Saturn, such concepts as parting, obstacles, endurance, patience, perseverance, solidity, constancy, alienation, loneliness, coldness, age, difficulty, cruelty, steadfastness, envy and greed are subject to individual Saturn. In Mundane astrology, grassroots authorities, landowners, miners, the elderly; In addition, Saturn is responsible for national disasters, epidemics, famines, etc. In astrological methods of forecasting, he points to socially dangerous individuals; for the elderly, pensioners, poor friends or relatives; on religious fanatics; for day laborers, agricultural workers; on clowns, vagabonds and beggars.

The Sun and the Moon are the luminaries . In classical astrology, so commonly called the Sun and the Moon. Now the term "planet" is applied to these heavenly bodies.

The North Pole of the World is the point at which the straight line, continuing the axis of rotation of the Earth through its North Pole, crosses the celestial sphere.

Sextile is a favorable aspect, equal to 60 °.

One of the main aspects, formed when two or more planets are separated in a birth chart by a distance of 54-66 degrees. As in antiquity, and now it is considered a harmonious and favorable aspect. Sextile brings opportunities, but the native must make efforts to realize the chances.

The planets in the middle of the sky or near it indicate that a person can leave his mark in the world.

Sesquad squares are one of the small aspects that are formed when two or more planets are separated in a birth chart by a distance of 133-137 degrees. It is considered weakly unfavorable, similar in its effect to the seven-square.

Sidereal astrology - (from the Latin word "sidus", which means "star") Astrological school, in which the zodiac is based on the real constellations through which the ecliptic passes. Because of the slow displacement of the earth's axis, the spring and autumn equinoxes move relative to the constellations of the zodiac. This phenomenon is called the displacement or precession of the equinoxes. Sidereists believe that the dates of the Sun's entry into the signs of the zodiac should be determined taking into account the displacement of the equinoxes, so their zodiac turns simultaneously with the change in the position of the Earth. Thus, a man born according to traditional (tropical) astrology under the sign of Aries, is considered a sidereist born under the sign of Pisces.

The synodic period is the time between two successive same-name connections in longitude.

Sirius (Vacation) - the name comes from the Greek root, translated as "scorching, sultry, burning" - a star, Alpha Dog of the Big, position - 15 degrees Cancer. The nature of the Jupiter-Mars type, some authors add a resemblance to Saturn. Indicates recognition and fame for major government posts. The brightest star of the firmament, selected from ancient times.

Declination in the equatorial coordinate system is the angular distance from the equatorial plane (positive to the north and negative to the south).

Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, in which the Sun is annually from about October 23 to November 21. Scorpio refers to the elements of water, it is a fixed sign. Its symbol is the scorpion, it is controlled by the planet Pluto. (Many astrologers believe that the former ruler of Scorpio, Mars, is now his co-regent.) Those born under the sign of Scorpio are sensual, secretive, emotional, endowed with imagination and supernatural abilities.

The displacement (precession) of the equinoxes is the slow and constant displacement of the spring and autumn equinoxes back along the zodiac, caused by the inclination of the earth's axis. The vernal equinox passes one sign approximately for 2150 years, or one astrological epoch. Sidereal astrology is based on the concept that the dates of occurrence of the Sun in each sign must constantly change due to a change in the position of the Earth. (See Epoch, astrological, and sidereal astrology.)

Connection is the moment when, for a given observer, two celestial bodies occupy the same position in the sky or have the same coordinate. For example, a heliocentric connection or a direct ascension connection.

Connection is one of the main aspects, the strongest in astrology, in which two or more planets occupy the same angular position in the horoscope (or are at a distance of 10 degrees from each other). The compound has a noticeable effect, the specific nature of which depends on the constituent planets.

Constellation - a group of stars, whose name is prompted by its visible outlines. For ancient astronomers, the division of stars into constellations was a convenient way of studying and dividing the universe.

The solar map is a horoscope in which the sign of the Sun is also considered an ascending sign (ascendant). This horoscope is used for an unknown time of birth. In the solar map, the sign of the Sun becomes the first house, and all the houses of the map are called solar. For many astrologers, a solar map is a convenient tool that allows you to evaluate the general characteristics of the personality and establish the main features, especially when used together with a natal chart. (See also Birth Chart.)

The mass of the Sun is 700 times greater than the total mass of all the Solar System planets. The largest approach of the Earth to the Sun - in January, the largest removal - in July, a month after the solstice. Astronomical parameters: visual magnitude stellar-26.7 Mythological significance - in Greek mythology Helios (Helios) is the god of the Sun, the son of the titans Hyperion and Feiji, the brother of Selena and Eos, who spontaneously gives life and punishes criminals with blindness. Myths point to the fecundity of Helios, whose offspring were distinguished by their insolent temper (Phaethon) and their propensity for witchcraft.

Solyar - (solar revolution) - a horoscope based on the annual return of the Sun to its natal position.

Middle houses - (they are also called succedic - from the Latin word "succedere", which means "to follow") Four houses, located in the horoscope directly behind the corner, namely: the second, the fifth, the eighth and the eleventh. The planets in these birth card houses indicate a strong will and purpose.

The average solar day is the time between two successive upper culminations of the average Sun (uniformly moving).

Affinity - mutual attraction between signs

The stationary motion is an apparent stop of the planet when the movement changes from direct to retrograde or from retrograde to direct.

The body circling around the Earth in the plane of the equator in such a direction and at such an altitude that its orbital period is one day, and, consequently, its position relative to the earth's surface remains unchanged.

Elements - (elements) The four original substances (fire, earth, air and water), through which the signs of the zodiac are classified. Signs of fire symbolize energy and enthusiasm; Earth signs are practical and constant; the signs of air are sociable and intelligent; signs of water accentuate emotion and imagination.

In ancient philosophers - the four primary substances, the four main forces of nature: Fire, Air, Water and Earth, of which all the subjects of the sublunary world are composed. According to Aristotle, everything that is above the sphere of the Moon is the immutable and imperishable bodies, consisting of the fifth element - Ether. Ptolemy associated the idea of ​​the four elements with astrology, subordinating each Trigon of the Signs of the Zodiac to one of the elements. Elemental (elemental) nature of the Horoscope results from the arrangement of the planets in signs: the element dominates, in the trigon of which there is the largest number of planets.

Angles are the four main points of the horoscope, which determine the position of the horizon and the meridian. The four corners are the ascendant, the descendant, the middle of the sky (Medium Coeli) and the celestial depth (Imum Coeli). These are the most important points on the birth chart. The planets in or near them have a special effect on the personality or image of the native.

A node is a point on a celestial sphere in which a large circle representing an orbit intersects with the plane of the ecliptic. That knot, where the body passes from under the ecliptic plane from the bottom up (from the southern hemisphere), is called ascending, and the opposite node - descending.

Two points, northern and southern, in which the orbit of the Moon or another planet crosses the ecliptic (the visible trajectory of the Sun's motion). Usually refers to the nodes of the moon (lunar nodes). In classical astrology the northern knot is called ascending or "dragon's head," and the southern node is called the descending or "tail of the dragon." These names are associated with the image of a giant celestial dragon, supposedly absorbing the moon during eclipses. In the birth chart, the lunar nodes indicate sensitive points, but their exact meaning remains a matter of debate. Most astrologers believe that the northern knot indicates areas of honor and favor, and the southern one - areas of tensions and problems. Some modern astrologers believe that the lunar nodes are related to the relationship: the northern - with their appearance, the southern - with their completion.

The governors are distributed between the signs as follows: Aries is governed by Mars, Taurus is governed by Venus, Twins rule by Mercury, Cancer is governed by the Moon, Leo is ruled by the Sun, Virgo is ruled by Mercury, Libra is governed by Venus, Scorpio is governed by Pluto (formerly Scorpio's ruler was Mars), Sagittarius is governed by Jupiter, Capricorn is governed by Saturn, Aquarius is governed by Uranus (formerly the ruler of Aquarius was Saturn), Pisces is governed by Neptune (formerly the ruler of Pisces was Jupiter). 2. The planet that controls the ascendant (ascendant) of the horoscope is considered to be the ruler of the entire birth chart.

Uranus is from nothing and creates nothing from nothing. Occult significance is the patron of astrology, the father of gods, the creator of terrestrial forms, the generator of ideas, the anarchist and the transformer of spiritual knowledge.

Astrological significance - the discovery of Uranus caused discussion among astrologers about its place in astrology. On the one hand, it looked like a shock to astrology, because it turned out that there are planets that astrology did not take into account and thus as if it were wrong; on the other hand, it became possible to explain the errors in astrological forecasts by the existence of not yet discovered planets. This gave astrologers an opportunity to justify their theories to introduce hypothetical planets, claiming that they exist, but are not yet open. Most astrologers agreed that Uranus is responsible for the latent and unexpected blows of fate (which, perhaps, reflects their own moods after the discovery of this planet). According to the most widespread modern views, Uranus is the highest octave of Mercury. It symbolizes a person's ability to interact with the energy of the Cosmos, to be included in his energy-information flows. Also points to the destruction of the old, reform, revolutionary transformation. He is subject to such concepts as surprise, unforeseen unrest, unexpected tension, unexpected events, nervousness, anxiety, spontaneous, abrupt changes.

The phase of the eclipse is the stage of the lunar or solar eclipse, during which the eclipsed body is covered by a shadow partially (a particular phase) or entirely (full phase). During the lunar eclipse, the moon is in the penumbra of the Earth in the half-shining phase and is partially or completely covered by the shadow of the Earth in the shadow phase.

The phase of the Moon and the planets is the illuminated part of the disk. When the dark part of the moon is facing the Earth, the phase of the moon is zero and is called a new moon. The first and third quarters correspond to the half phase; while they say that the moon is in a quadrature. At full moon the phase of the moon is equal to one.

The figure of the Earth is the true form of the Earth as a physical body. It is often approximated by a spheroid of rotation - a geometric body in which each section parallel to the equator is a circle, and any section parallel to the axis of rotation is an ellipse whose minor axis coincides with the diameter connecting the North and South poles.

Fixation is one of the four qualities by which the signs of the zodiac are classified. Fixed signs include Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius; they form a fixed qwartruplicity. In astrology, fixity means perseverance, purposefulness, determination and steadfastness.

Horary astrology is a very interesting and little known area of ​​astrology for the general public. Has very great opportunities. Horary horoscope answers a specifically asked question, almost any one to which you can answer "yes" or "no." For example, to take or not take a loan, to go or not to go anywhere, whether to buy a house, whether to marry / marry, to bargain and the like. Horary horoscope allows you to search for missing items, missing animals or people, requires the client accurate information. If a person gives knowingly false information, then this is either indicated in the horoscope, or the map will indicate that the answer can not be read - the information is closed. This is the only kind of horoscope where an astrologer can tell you: "The question is asked late (or early) or the information is not complete (or false) - there is no answer." It often happens that an event has already occurred, but has not yet manifested itself for a person, therefore, it makes no sense to give recommendations. In this case, the card is "closed" for reading.

Horar map - (from the Greek word "chorus", that is "hour") A special horoscope compiled for a certain point in time, with which a specific question is related. This horar map differs from the natal, compiled at the time of birth.

Time zone - meridional belts on the surface of the Earth, for which a single standard time is established as a local civilian. The world time is an hour ahead of or behind the average Greenwich time.

Latitude is the angular coordinate measured perpendicular to the main plane (positive to the north and negative to the south).

The equator is a plane perpendicular to the axis of rotation of the Earth and passing through its center.

Exaltation is the sign of the Zodiac, in which the properties of the planet are most clearly manifested.

Ecliptic is the plane of the Earth's orbit around the Sun.

A large circle of the sky along which the apparent annual motion of the Sun around the earth occurs. Ecliptic is the path of the Sun, which is observed from the Earth (although in fact the Earth revolves around the Sun, in reality the ecliptic is the path of the Earth around the Sun). A narrow strip in the sky, in the middle of which the ecliptic passes, is called the zodiac.

The ellipse is a smooth closed curve of oval shape, the special case of which is a circle. The ellipse is described by a point moving so that the sum of the distances from it to two given points, called foci, remains constant. The largest diameter of an ellipse passing through both the focus and the center is called the major axis, and part of it, enclosed between the center and the curve, is called the semimajor axis.

Epoch - the moment chosen as the starting point of time, taking into account the position of the planet in the sign of the Zodiac.

Another name is a great month. The time interval is approximately 2,150 years, for which the point of the vernal equinox passes all 30 degrees of one sign of the zodiac. The phenomenon known as precession (displacement) of the equinoxes is caused by a slow but constant displacement of the earth's axis. Astrologers believe that at the end of the 20th century the world passes from the Piscean age to a new great month - the age of Aquarius. A great year is an interval of time for which the point of the spring equinox passes through all 12 signs of the zodiac. This period lasts about 25 800 years.

Ephemerides are astronomical tables indicating pre-calculated positions of celestial bodies with a certain time interval on certain days of the year (month, century).

A handbook indicating the positions of the Sun, Moon and planets on each day of the year.

Jupiter - [Lat. Iuppiter, srv-lat. Juppiter] - the fifth from the Sun planet of the Solar System, refers to the classical planets. Domination, - over the sign of Sagittarius.

Strife with Mars. Astronomical significance is the largest planet of the Solar System, the third brightest object of the night sky (after the Moon and Venus). Due to its size is observed with the naked eye, as a star of the first magnitude, but only a short time in the morning or evening. The time of his conversion is 11 years 314.8 days. The satellite system of Jupiter resembles a reduced model of the Solar System. The four largest satellites are still discovered by Galileo and so are called Galilean. Mythological significance - in many nations this planet associated with the supreme deity. Such was the Greek Zeus, with whom was identified Jupiter - the son of Saturn and Gaia, the brother of Neptune and Pluto. He reigned on Olympus at the head of a host of gods after the overthrow of his father Saturn.
