Tropic of Cancer

Astrological Dictionary

A "Small Circle" 23?27' North of the Earth's Equator where the Sun reaches its highest declination North. This relates to the sun's position there at the Solstice. It is the same angular measurement as the Earth's tilt to the plane of the Ecliptic. Named after the tropical sign of Cancer, for incorrect reasons.
