Learn about your Descendant!
Everyone knows the Ascendant, that point of the ecliptic that falls in a sign, depending on the place and the time of birth (see the article on this subject). There are special tables or applications to save this calculation and to reliably know where to find your Ascendant for a given theme. Be careful, however, because a domification (position of the twelve sectors in the signs on the chart of the sky) needs to know in a precise way the time of birth: every 4 minutes, the point advance of a degree.
The same goes for the Descendant, which is calculated in the same way and falls exactly to the opposite point (180 degrees from the Ascendant). For example, if your Ascendant is Aries, the Descendant is Libra, if the Ascendant is Taurus, the Descendant is Scorpio,if the Ascendant is Gemini, the Descendant is Sagittarius,if the Ascendant is in Cancer, the Descendant is Capricorn,if the Ascendant is Leo, the Descendant is Aquarius,if the Ascendant is Virgo, the Descendant is Pisces,if the Ascendant is Libra, the Descendant is Aries,if the Ascendant is Scorpio, the Descendant is Taurus,if the Ascendant is Sagittarius, the Descendant is Gemini,if the Ascendant is Capricorn, the Descendant is Cancer,if the Ascendant is Aquarius, the Descendant is Leo,if the Ascendant is Pisces, the Descendant is Virgo,In other words, there are 12 possible combinations.
As such, an astral theme tells us that none of us are alone on Earth, the world does not revolve around us. Our existence only makes sense when we build relationships, more or less easily, and when interactions occur. The position of the Descendant will tell us more about it. Then we will see further, sign by sign, what the 12 combinations give us. Next, the presence of the planets in this house will also influence this behavior. We will be able to analyze how the native behaves in front of the world, their way of being in collaboration, what they look for in sharing. Astrologically, the Descendant is also related to our shadow: how we project what makes us uncomfortable, for example what we do not integrate in our Ascendant, by attributing these characteristics to the other. By letting them embody it for us.
