Angular Distance(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
The distance between points in an astrological chart is always expressed in terms of angular distance. Because the locations of the significant elements of a horoscope are expressed in terms of degrees and minutes (and, occasionally, seconds) of the zodiac, the distance between any two points is similarly expressed as so many degrees and minutes of the arc between them. For example, the angular distance between a planet located at 3°15’ Aries and another planet situated at 24°27’ Aries would be 21°12’.
