Antiscia and contra-antiscia are symmetrical arrangements around the cardinal axis (or Aries point). Observed for at least two thousand years, these planetary statements are simple to use, easy to find, and a powerful addition to any astrologer's toolbox. Favored by Symmetrical (Uranian) astrologers and used by Hellenistic, Persian, Medieval, and Western tropical astrologers in the know, planets and points in antiscia indicate connection and undeniable expression in the world. They are also valuable for charts with no known birth time.
In this multimedia presentation we will note their potency through charts of artists, musicians, athletes, politicians, actors, and astrologers. We will see the value of tracking antiscional transits to natal placements and experience their impact in connections across the axis via synastry contacts.
