A sign is intercepted when it lies wholly within a single house and does not occupy the cusp at either end of the house. A planet is intercepted when it lies in an intercepted sign. In the northern hemisphere, the signs of short ascension (Capricorn through Gemini) are most often intercepted. Being intercepted may restrict the freedom of a planet to act. In traditional horary, if a sign is intercepted, the ruler of the intercepted sign becomes the co-ruler of that house. Intercepted houses and planets often are considered to show something which is not at first obvious, or something hidden.
