Contrascion

Contrascion

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Picture the wheel of the zodiac and draw a straight line from 0° Aries to 0° Libra so as to divide the circle into equal halves. If a planet is located at an angular distance of 45° away from this dividing line (e.g., at 15° Taurus), its contrascion would be 45° in the opposite direction from the line (i.e., at 15° Aquarius). If another planet happens to be located at or very near the contrascion of the first planet, the two planets are said to have a relationship with each other comparable to an opposition aspect.
