Radix(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Radix (Latin for “root”) refers to the original horoscope. It is used to distinguish the radix from such secondary charts as progressed horoscopes. In genethliacal astrology it is equivalent to the natal chart. Radix, however, may also refer to the original chart of a horoscope cast for an event (as opposed to a person). It hence has a wider application than natal chart.
