Accidental Ascendant

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Horary astrology is the branch of astrology in which an astrological chart is cast for the moment a question is asked. The chart is then read to determine an answer to the question. The ascendant (degree of the zodiac on the eastern horizon) for a horary chart is referred to as the accidental ascendant.
