A Window Into Which an Astrologer Peers

The Anaretic Degree

The 29th degree of any sign is considered the anaretic degree.  The anaretic degree is accidentally weak at the end of a sign; therefore, it signifies the end of a cycle.  This degree represents either getting too much or too little of something.  The last degree often describes a desperate situation.  The sign that the celestial point or planet occupies represents the area of life that remains unsatified.  But the planet is readily looking forward to the lessons and cycles promised at its ingress into a new sign.  The last degree of any sign holds much karmic significance.

The 29th Degree Through the Signs

29 Degrees Aries
This signifies the end of a personal cycle, where natives undergo personal physical change.  They feel they personally have too much or too little of something, and change is desired.  That something can be determined by considering the planet and house in which the anaretic degree is found.  It strongly signifies personal growth and self-betterment.
 
29 Degrees Taurus
This suggests the end of a monetary cycle.  Individuals find themselves either filing bankruptcy, or finally pulling out of debt.  However, filing bankruptcy essentially relieves them from excess debt.  This could also signify the end of a cycle involving real estate.  Perhaps, a land sale profits little or they overpaid for that acreage.  Unfortunately, some sort of financial crisis is denoted here; a new financial cycle is on the horizon. 

29 Degrees Gemini
This denotes the end of a mental cycle.  Natives seem mentally overwhelmed or bored.  Unfortunately, an end of relationships with siblings, cousins or neighbors is indicated. 
 
29 Degrees Cancer
This signifies the end of a home or parental cycle.  People with this placement feel a home or dharmic class has served its purpose.  This denotes a move to another home or class.  Unfortunately, this also could signify the end of life--the ending of ones' life cycle.  This degree is reputed to be the millionaire's degree.
 
29 Degrees Leo
This is one of the most fortunate degrees in the zodiac as blessed star Regulus takes it seat here. This degree suggests the end of a creative or procreation cycle.  It could signify children are grown and gone--empty nest syndrome.  It could also signify the end of a creative cycle as creative juices take a new direction.  Married love is karmic and usually happy; however, infertility or too many children can plague this degree.

29 Degrees Virgo
This denotes the end of a employment cycle.  Natives find themselves feeling that they are not getting enough out of their job.  This could also signify a change in employment.  It also portends the end or beginning of a  health cycle.

29 Degrees Libra
This signifies the end of a cycle where a pressing legal issue is involved.  It requires people to tie up loose ends.  Unfortunately, it strongly signifies divorce.
 
29 Degrees Scorpio
This suggests the end of a life cycle.  Natives feel a financial responsibility left to them from someone who has passed is too much to deal with.  This could indicate the end of probate.  It could also denote excessive tax burden or inheritance issues.  Unfortunately, a death may be experienced at this degree placement.

29 Degrees Sagittarius
This denotes the end of a spiritual cycle.  This denotes that old belief systems and philosophies no longer serve a purpose or these ideals leave much to be desired.  A far-from-home pilgrimage or self-seeking journey ends, inspiring internal change and self-betterment.
 
29 Degrees Capricorn
This signifies the end of a professional career cycle.  Natives may be dissatisfied as their career leaves much to be desired.  A major career change is on the horizon.
 
29 Degrees Aquarius
This suggests the end of a humanitarian cycle.  Current  friendships and relationships with in-laws could come to an end.  This placement suggest natives redefine their hopes of a perfect world as they begin to isolate those around them who do not share their progressive new world vision.
 
29 Degrees Pisces
This denotes the end of a subconscious or exiled cycle.  Individuals may be released from either a physical prison or a subconscious guilt-ridden self-induced prison.  This degree denotes misfortune and dissatisfaction.  A new life cycle is on the horizon as old cycles dissolve.  Unfortunately, suicide or murder is possible with this anaretic placement.
