an astrology term...point when a celestial body is directly overhead. NADIR is the exact opposite.
a Greek name given to the 'belt' of stars through which the planets APPARENTLY pass centrally through. The ECLIPTIC is the circle line on the celestial sphere (like an Equator), which lies in the plane of the Sun's APPARENT orbit around the Earth. The Zodiac then is divided into 12 parts called SIGNS or HOUSES: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces. The in between of a House, is a CUSP. And these Houses or Signs are then part of an ELEMENT (count 1, 2, 3, 4 to place every 4th matching) Fire, Earth, Air, or Water. Then you have POLARITY: Fire Air = positive / Water Earth = NEGATIVE. Further, Fire is opposite Air, Water is opposite Earth.
the Zodiac begins at the Vernal Equinoctial point or Spring, where the ecliptic crosses the Equator south to north. The 4 quarters are divided by solstices equinoxes. Each quarter is further divided by 3 SIGNS: CARDINAL starts, FIXED persists the process, MUTABLE completes.
