Antiscia

The degree of zodiacal longitude that has the same declination value as another zodiacal longitude degree. Every zodiacal longitude has its corresponding Antiscion Point. This is figured by beginning at 00 degrees of the Cancer/Capricorn axis.

Example: 15 Gemini is 15 zodiacal degrees before 00 Cancer; 15 Cancer is 15 degrees after 00 Cancer and is therefore its Antiscion.

Example 2: 20 Sagittarius is 10 degrees before 00 Capricorn, so its antiscion point would be 10 Capricorn, which is 10 degrees after 00 Capricorn.
