Fruitful Signs
The water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces. In Horary Questions the Ascendant, Moon, or Lord of the Ascendant, if strongly placed in any one of these Signs, become symbols of children. Some deem this equally applicable to the Natal Figure, and that the 5th or its Lord in a fruitful Sign is a symbol of children.

Grand Cross
A pattern formed by the planets when in Aspect. The Grand Cross happens when two planets are in opposition and two other planets in opposition cross them at 90-degree angles. Usually will occur within the same quality; Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable. Opinions differ as to whether it should be interpreted as an exceptional cosmic cross, and thus dynamic, energetic, and extroverted, or as "too much of a good thing", and tending toward diffusion. Astrologers consider this configuration to increase the strength of all four bodies.

Grand Trine
The position of two planets 120 degrees apart is called a Trine. When there are three planets, each 120 degrees apart, a Grand Trine is formed. Usually occur in the same Element. Astrologers consider this configuration to increase the strength of all three bodies.

Great Circle
Any circle, the plane of which passes through the centre of the earth, the imaginary core, projecting into space to intersect the ecliptic. Those most used in Astrology are the Horizon, the Equator and the Ecliptic. A LESSER CIRCLE does not pass through the centre of the earth but can be at any point. Lesser Circles define the TROPICS. On a sphere, meridians of longitude are great circles. The following are examples of great circles on the celestial sphere: Meridian Prime Vertical Celestial Equator.

Horizon
A plane specific to a given location on Earth, which divides the visible hemisphere from the invisible hemisphere. The Apparent Horizon is a plane tangent to earth from a specific location - what we actually see as horizon dividing earth and sky and depending on elevation of the location above seas level. The is a Great Circle, defined by an imaginary plane passing through earth's Geocentric Horizon core, which is parallel to the Apparent horizon. The rational or true horizon is a great circle parallel to the visible horizon whose plane goes through the center of the Earth. The celestial horizon is the rational horizon extended infinitely into space to intersect the celestial sphere.

Horoscope
(Greek: hora + skopein) View of the hour. Original meaning was identical to the ascendant, or rising degree. Largely avoided by professional astrologers, the term has become synonymous with the entire astrological chart, especially the natal chart. Also applied to the Sun-sign predictions, found in magazines and newspapers. A plotting of the geocentric positions of the planetary bodies in relation to earth, as they move through the ecliptic in their annual journey around the sun. Calculated in relation to the place and time of a birth; normally, planets are placed within houses of the chart according to the approximation afforded by a table of houses.

Hyleg
The significator of longevity in a horoscope. If the sun occupied an aphetic place, it became Hyleg. Otherwise, the moon was next tested. If neither, the planet which had the most Dignities at the preceding lunation. Otherwise, the ascendant for a day birth; or, Fortuna for a night birth. The time required for the hyleg to progress to an aspect to the anareta was used as an indicator of the length of an individual's life. This practice is considered unethical by professional astrologers.

Inconjunct
Signs that do not BEHOLD each other. Those in semi sextile (30 degrees) or quincunx (150 degrees) apart are inconjunct and not related by Antiscion or Contrantiscion. Sometimes this term is used for the quincunx aspect. Inconjunct signs are also called dissociate signs. Such signs neither command nor obey, do not behold, and form neither square, opposition, sextile or trine; in short, they do not relate to each other.
