Main points

Boreas, Orior, Suttas and Ponor (clockwise) are the main cardinal points. The planet’s rotating axis is along the Boreas-Suttas direction.

Secondary points

Creumbra, Leviar, Diminiar and Matumbra are the secondary ones. So, instead of talking about “Boreas-Orior”, one should say “Creumbra”. A direction can be even more precise, by mixing a main and a secondary cardinal point, like “Boreas-Orior”.
