Short Ascension

The signs of short ascension are from 00 Capricorn through 29 Gemini. When these signs are rising, the obliquity of the Ecliptic, caused by the Earth's tilt on her axis, is positioned as such that those signs rise straight up in the sky. Because the shortest distance is a straight line, they rise faster. They take a shorter amount of time to get fully above the Horizon.
