An aspect is
an angular relationship between two points in the 360° of
the zodiac. Said another way, the angular distance between two
planets is what causes the aspect. The aspect begins with the
fastest orbiting planet of the two. For example, it would be
Mercury conjunct Saturn and not Saturn conjunct Mercury.
CLOSE : The most powerful aspect because it indicates
the same degree of the same sign for two planets. This aspect
can be very intense and sometimes on the negative side, combustible.
Conjunction expresses the creative energy of both planets involved.
60°: This is a positive aspect for the planets
involved. The effect is usually influence of functions in the
intellectual world of ideas. Mental facilities are heightened
and more interests are researched with this aspect. This expresses
itself through the skill of written or spoken communication.
This is the sociable aspect.
30° : This is considered one of the weaker aspects
of the chart but none the less can have influence on the planets
involved. Most often it represents flowing of energies of the
sympathetic pairing of the planets. It does allow for entry
of new information
45°: Also considered a weaker aspect of the chart.
This angle results in planetary energies that conflict in subtle
tension and usually calmness is required.
72°: Another positive and powerful aspect. The
planetary energies are positively linked with subtle and spiritual
in dimension. Independence and strong will are indicated with
90°: One of the harder aspects, it indicates the
planetary energies are in conflict. This internal and creative
tension often brings rich rewards over time.
120°: Another positive aspect where the planetary
energies flow smoothly and the connection is easy and beneficial.
135°: This aspect can be challenging because the
planetary energies are in conflict in determined tension, control
150°: As the name implies it is the opposite of
conjunct. The planetary energies do not flow smoothly and one
or the other predominates. Discrimination is advised with this
180°: With this aspect the planetary aspects are
polarized. It is more likely that outer events stimulate their
interaction. The challenge here is to integrate.
