Beholding Sign [Astro*Index]

Mirror sign images across the tropical Cancer/ Capricorn solstitial axis. The Sun in the corresponding degrees of the sign pairs has declination.

The same signs are always paired together:
        Gemini and Cancer
        Taurus and Leo
        Aries and Virgo
        Pisces and Libra
        Scorpio and Aquarius
        Sagittarius and Capricorn.

Beholding Sign [DeVore]

Those which have the same declination; i.e., at equal distances from the Tropics; as Aries and Virgo, Taurus and Leo, Gemini and Cancer, Libra and Pisces, Scorpio and Aquarius, Sagittarius and Capricorn. Because such pairs of Signs were either both Northern, or both Southern, they were by Ptolemy deemed to be "of equal power."

This consideration, however, applied only when two such Signs were joined by a body in each, mutually configurated.
