The zodiac wheel in astrology is divided into 12 equal segments, each ruled by one zodiac sign covering an area of 30 degrees. And while every point on this arc can be significant, there are certain degrees that are more significant than the rest. These are called critical degrees. And the 29th degree is a powerful one among them... but it comes with a unique set of challenges.

What is the 29th degree in astrology?

The 29th degree indicates that you're completing an important phase in your life that's connected to the planet at that degree. According to astrology TikTok creator @shawtyherbs, the 29th degree of any zodiac sign, also known as an anaretic degree, is commonly associated with feeling the need for emotional support.


“The 29th degree in astrology is an energy that can be associated with the feeling of being rushed, like you always have to be on the go, and even anxiety,” @shawtyherbs says in a video. “This is because the 29th degree is an anaretic degree.”

She describes the anaretic degree as the last degree of a zodiac sign before it moves into a new sign. “When you have a planet, or even an asteroid, or an angle in your chart at the 29th degree, there's often a feeling as though you have to get something done. Like you always have to rush. Always have to be on the go.” She explains that it's an “area of your life where you feel as though you can't take a break”, thus, precipitating the need for emotional support.

“You need to make sure you have emotional support,” she said. “Like a therapist, a counselor, maybe even an emotional support group. Just so you can alleviate that anxiety and help reduce the stress that can possibly come along with having the 29th degree in your chart.”

But @shawtyherbs does clarify that there are many benefits of having the 29th degree in one's chart. Here are some of them.


Benefits of the 29th degree in astrology

1. It reveals a mastery of the zodiac sign.

If you have a planet, asteroid, or point in the 29th degree in your birth chart, it reveals you already possess a great deal of mastery over the energy of that zodiac sign and are now ready to tackle the challenges of the next sign.

2. Special talents and inner genius.

The planet, asteroid, or point associated with the 29th degree bestows a lot of natural talents on the individual. For example, if you have Moon in the 29th degree, you will be naturally good at reading people and understanding the undercurrents in an environment. You may even be a powerful psychic or detective. Likewise, having Mars in the 29th degree can bestow upon an individual the power to build or destroy, depending on the temperament of the individual.

3. It brings the potential for great success.

Because of an innate talent surrounding the anaretic degree, most people who have the 29th degree in their natal chart go on to achieve a lot of success in their life. Just remember that success doesn't always mean fame. A lot of wealthy and successful people in the world are practically unknown and vice versa.

3. High risk and high reward.

The 29th degree can bring a lot of stress and anxiety, but it also brings a lot of opportunities into an individual's life. These opportunities often feel fated or destined for the individual. And the rewards associated with them are extremely sweet as well.

Challenges of the 29th degree in astrology

1. A fated life full of “tests.”

The 29th degree is associated with a life full of fated “tests.” You will constantly come across challenges that test your mastery over the essence of the zodiac sign. It's almost like the final graduation exam people have to take before they can wear the gown and cap.

2. No time to sit still.

As @shawtyherbs mentioned, people who have the 29th degree in their astrology chart rarely have time to sit still. They feel like they cannot take a break and always have to be on the go.


3. High anxiety and stress.

Despite all the success and greatness that the 29th degree can bring into one's life, it's commonly associated with a life full of anxiety and stress. But over time, with a good daily routine or grounding and emotionally-supportive habits, you can easily outshine your peers and never fall apart under pressure.
