Acronycal

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Acronycal (Greek for “on the edge of night”) refers to a planet directly opposite the Sun that rises after sunset or sets before sunrise, which, as a consequence, is in a favorable location for astronomical observation. The acronycal place is the degree in the sign of the zodiac directly opposed to the Sun.
