Reception

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Reception is an older term for a relationship between two planets in which one is located in a sign ruled by the other. For example, Mars in Taurus is said to be “received by” Venus (the ruler of Taurus). Contemporary astrologers rarely use this term, except in the expression mutual reception (which occurs when two planets are in each other’s sign).

Reception

 

the perception and transformation of mechanical, thermic, electromagnetic, and chemical stimuli into nerve signals. It is effected by perceptive sensory neural structures called receptors. In reception, the primary interaction of the receptor and a stimulus results in receptor potential. Upon reaching a certain critical level, receptor potential induces a rhythmic discharge of impulses in the sensory nerve fiber that branches off the receptor. The magnitude of receptor potential is gradual, that is, it varies with the intensity of stimulation. The reception of stimuli from the external environment is called exteroception, and reception from the organism’s internal environment interoception. Many receptor organs are called sense organs.
