Astrological Coordinates : A Recap
The Celestial Sphere

  • The celestial equator and the ecliptic plane intersect to form the two equinoxes and the equinoctial axis.
  • The Vernal Equinox or 0° Aries node or point is the ascending node of the ecliptic plane to the equatorial plane.
  • The Autumnal Equinox or 0° Libra point is the descending node of the ecliptic plane to the equatorial plane.
  • These points and these two coordinate systems are FIXED in space.
  • AT ANY MOMENT and AT ANY PLACE in the Earth's orbit, the ZERO° Aries point is ALWAYS in the same direction and at an infinite distance.
  • The measurement of longitude along the ecliptic or the equator is only identical at the four Cardinal points: the two equinoctial and solstitial points.
  • At all other points, there is a difference between a degree of longitude (the same degree) as measured along the ecliptic and the same degree measured on the equator.
  • Each system is simply tilted at an angle to the other.
