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.

Intercepted
zodiacal sign (Tropical or Sidereal) whose 30?-extent along the Ecliptic is wholly contained within the House Circles which define a house (in a specific House System). In other words, the same sign appears on the cusps of two adjacent houses; the opposite sign appears on the opposite cusps; and three houses from each a sign and its opposite are "skipped." Signs of short ascension are more most often intercepted (Capricorn through Gemini in the northern hemisphere, their opposite signs in the southern hemisphere). A planet that lies in an intercepted sign. In horary astrology, an intercepted planet is said to be less free to act.
