Theory of the Degrees in Astrology

What Do Degrees In Astrology Mean? | Secrets Of The Natal Charts - AstroNiki (1)

The degrees in astrology mean a whole lot of things. If you can read your chart, you can use the theory of degrees with ease.

The theory of degrees belongs to the famous Serbian astrologer, the late Nikola Stojanovic.If I am not mistaken, he was the first to figure out what astrology degrees mean.Including the meaning of the planetary degrees as well as the degrees of house cups/angles.

However, the theory is very simple, and even a beginner can easily understand it. First, you need to know the order of the 12 Zodiac Signs and their fundamental qualities/domains.

Degrees in the natal chart

Each Zodiac Sign starts from 0 degree until 29thdegree.

For example, the sign of Taurus starts at 0 degree until the 29thdegree, then the 0 degrees of Gemini follows it.

Every degree belongs to one Zodiac Sign, or better to say, and every degree carries the energy of a particular Zodiac sign. So it can be an adjective, can be a place where the sign rules, it can mean a “how,” etc.

You can give additional meaning to every planet with the degree theory.

Let’s say you have Venus in Taurus at the 11thdegree. You can interpret Venus in Taurus, the house position, and the aspects it has. Once you know that the 11thdegree is the Aquarius degree -because Aquarius is the 11thsign – you can add additional meaning to that Venus in Taurus. Add Aquarius qualities.

You can add additional meaning to house cusps too.

Example No. 1: Someone’s MC is at the 23rddegree: This is the highest point in the natal chart and can indicate an astrologer, a scientist working with high technology, or any of the other Aquarius domains, or having a fast development when it comes to career- again Aquarius domain.

Example No 2.: For example, the 7th house cusps- talks about the marriage and the spouse-if it falls at the 11thdegree, it’s an indication that a friend introduces the native to the spouse or goes on a blind date. (Just add Aquarius domains, such as friends, or meeting in a large social setting.) .According to Nikola’s degree theory, the Aquarius degree can indicate a divorce too, because Aquarius rules liberation too.

Or it might mean that the spouse is different in some way- Aquarius = being different. For example, the spouse is from a different continent, from another race, different religious background, etc.

Example No. 3.: If the 7th house cusp- spouse and marriage- is at the 13thdegree. It can indicate that a spouse will be an athlete- as Aries rules sports and athletes.Therefore, the 13th degree is the Aries (sportive, being an athlete) degree.

What degrees in astrology mean:

You can check below which Zodiac sign’s energy/quality is represented by each astrological degree. These are the essential qualities to add. If you are familiar with the Zodiac Signs domains, you can add them too.

Degrees 0-29

0 degree: Every 0 degree is like a double whammy of each sign. Interpret it as it doubles the energy of the Zodiac sign, where it is. (I.e., 0 degrees of Gemini, it is like a double Gemini energy.)

0 degree indicates a fresh start, new karma, and new adventure. It is also considered a critical degree.
