Down Low on the Descendant
So many questions; so little time.
The Descendant is one of the chart's features rarely discussed. Why? No power or influence? Should it not have some sort of parity with the ascendant; a celestial a yin and yang thing?
I ran across one author who claims the descendant's tightly wound with partnerships. In a never-ending desire to know thyself (that darned Scorpio ascendant!), please, I ask the board's astrological avatars for clarification.
Also, is there such an important interpretation for the cardinal cross...ascendant, descendant, midheaven, and the I.C.? Do these points have a strong meaning in a modern or traditional reading?
