riddle 12

I am not the descendant,
I beg your pardon please,
And I refuse to be grafted
on any old degree.
If you can count backward,
that’s the way you find me best.
And while you’re at it,
you’ll know what I’m against.

One thought on “riddle 12

  1. OK Thomas, I’ll have a feeble attempt; is it a Contrantiscion? Signs and degrees that ‘hear each other’ or of equal ascension.

    I am not the descendant,
    I beg your pardon please,

    ~~ CarO ~~ Just as the Descendant is the opposing polarity of the Ascendant axis

    And I refuse to be grafted
    on any old degree.

    ~~ CarO ~~ so to is the Contrantiscion exactly opposite to the Antiscion

    If you can count backward,
    that’s the way you find me best.

    ~~ CarO ~~ If an antiscion lies at a certain zodiacal degree then we count the remaining degrees out of 29 backwards from 29 to find the contranticion in its respective antiscial sign. The Table for this in Firmicus Maternus “Liber Secundus” counts the contrantiscial degrees backwards from 29.

    And while you’re at it,
    you’ll know what I’m against.

    ~~ CarO ~~ Contra means against: and as a contrantiscion is the polarity of an antiscion it is therefore against it :0)

    Love
    CarO
