Angular Houses (Angles of Horoscope)
These are the most important houses residing on two axes: the ascendant-descendant axis and the horizon-zenith axis.
Ascendant is the eastern horizon point. It refers to the type of personality, the appearance of the person in the personal horoscope. Ascendant is the third most important point in the horoscope – after Sun and Moon, – although in some schools it is considered to be the most important because it is the most personal, related to the exact moment of birth. That is why it is very important which sign falls on the ascendant. Read more here:
Descendant is the western point of the horizon and indicates the type of partner and topicality of partnership. What kind of partners are you willing to attract, what kind of person you need, as a personality supplement? If you need it at all.
MC (medium coeli) or zenith, the highest point in the sky where Sun is in midday. The angle of MC means career, essential highest goals that man can achieve in society and how they seek a career.
IC (imum coeli) or nadir – the lowest point, where the Sun is at midnight. It is related to the family, the birth. Some associate it with father, some with mother. I think the connection with mother is natural because this house is ruled by Moon. Also, it is connected with the depths of the subconscious, the roots, the origins. This house shows what type of family and what kind of house this person needs or has a tendency to create.
