Understanding Degree Theory (1)

Nikola Stojanovic was a prominent figure in the astrology community as he is invented degree theory. Nikola Stojanovic's work and insights have influenced many astrologers and enthusiasts, contributing to the growth and understanding of astrology both within the astrology community and beyond. Unfortunately he passed away 2020.

What is Degree Theory?

Degree theory in astrology refers to the interpretation of planetary placements and aspects based on the specific degrees of the zodiac signs they occupy. Each zodiac sign consists of 30 degrees, ranging from 0° to 29°. Degree theory posits that the precise degree of a planet within a sign can provide additional insights into its expression and influence.

Weanalyse the degrees of planets to determine their strength, dignity, and potential effects on an individual's life. Certain degrees, known as critical degrees, are considered particularly significant and may indicate heightened sensitivity or intensity in the corresponding areas of life. Additionally, planets positioned at certain degrees within a sign may form significant aspects with other planets or sensitive points in the birth chart, influencing the overall astrological interpretation.

Degree theory also extends to other factors in astrology, such as the angles (Ascendant, Midheaven, Descendant, and IC), which are sensitive points in the chart associated with specific degrees of the zodiac. The precise degrees of these angles can influence the individual's personality, career, relationships, and overall life direction.

critical degrees:

  • Cardinal signs(Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn):0, 13, and 26 degrees
  • Fixed signs(Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius): 8-9 and 21-22 degrees
  • Mutable signs(Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces): 4 and 17 degrees

What Degree is Associated to what sign?

Degrees in astrology follow the sequence of the Zodiac, commencing with the first degree linked to Aries and its ruling planet, Mars. the 0 degree is not associated with a sign. This pattern continues through the initial12 degrees until reaching the13th degree. At this point, the concept of critical or Anaretic degrees becomes relevant. Notably, critical degrees are characterised by Aries (Cardinal energy), Leo (Fixed energy), Sagittarius (Mutable), Capricorn (Cardinal Energy), and Taurus (Fixed Energy).
