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.

radix

(mathematics)
The ratio, R, between the weights of adjacent digits in positional representation of numbers. The right-most digit has weight one, the digit to its left has weight R, the next R^2, R^3, etc. The radix also determines the set of digits which is zero to R-1. E.g. decimal (radix ten) uses 0-9 and each digit is worth ten times as much as you move left along the number.
