ANAPHORA

, in Astrology, the second house, or that part of the heavens which is 30 degrees from the horoscope.

The term anaphora is also sometimes applied promiscuously to some of the succeeding houses, as the 5th, the 8th, and the 11th. In this sense anaphora is the same as epanaphora, and stands opposed to cataphora.

ANASTROUS signs, in Astronomy, a name given to the duodecatemoria, or the 12 portions of the ecliptic, which the signs possessed anciently, but have since deserted by the precession of the equinox.
