Intercepted

A sign is said to be intercepted when it falls within a house, enclosed between two other signs that hold the cusps - as in the illustration below where Mars is intercepted in Pisces in the 2nd house, the cusps being held by Aquarius and Aries.

Intercepted


Some modern authors have suggested that planets in intercepted signs are weakened or in some way confined but this view does not appear to be supported in traditional texts where they are sometimes used as secondary significators upon the affairs of that house. For an example of this see the paraphrased extract from Lilly's Nativity of an English Merchant.
