energy of any one planet or planets in the position they rent
in zodiac houses are also affected
by how the planets are positioned with respect to each other
at any time. This is the conversation,
if you will, that takes place that influences the effect on
the person's chart.
positions produce arrangements that reinforce these positive
energies. While others bring about disruptive and difficult effects.
The relationship between the planets are called Aspects. They
refer to the ANGLE or degree the position describes.
aspects are: oppositions and squares, or conjunctions,
sextile and trines.
any two planets are in the same sign of the zodiac, they
are in Conjunction.
any two planets are opposite each other in the zodiac,
then they are in Opposition.
any two planets are at 90 degree angles (or right angles)
to each other then they are Squared.
any two planes are at 60 degree angles to each other,
then they are Sextile.
they are 120 degrees apart they are Trine.
effect of an aspect between two planets is strongest when the
fastest planet reaches the exact angle of the aspect. However
effects can be felt over several degrees (called the orb),
depending on which planet is involved and on whether it is a
major or a minor aspect.
interpretation of aspects is based impart on how the planets
fall into signs with similar or conflicting elements and qualities.
For example, the square aspect has planets in the same quality
or mode, but conflicting elements (e.g.,
fire and water) while the trine aspect the planets are in the
same element, but stimulated by different qualities.
aspects are described as harmonious or inharmonious. Harmonious
aspects can help matters along. Inharmonious aspects ("badly" aspected
planets) introduce stresses, many of which can actually help
you if you learn to deal with them. A brief description of the
meaning of the major aspects is as follows:
in determining the aspect an astrologer counts SIGNS between
the two planets and NOT houses. This is particularly important
when dealing with a chart that has an intercepted house
harmonious or inharmonious, this aspect merges and intensifies
the energies of two planets. Inner tension can arise if the planets
have conflicting natures.
(60 degrees, two signs apart):
aspect that helps energies flow toward attainment of your goals,
provided you make some conscious effort to achieve them yourself.
(90 degrees, three signs apart):
aspect causing tensions and obstacles for you to overcome. It
forces you to choose between your conflicting inner needs and
(120 degrees, four signs apart):
aspect that brings the two energies into an easy interplay. This
can create such beneficial consequences that things become to
easy for you and you become lazy.
(180 degrees, six signs apart):
aspect creating inner tensions between your planetary urges.
It also creates dynamic tensions with others, which you must
reconcile if you want to maintain harmonious relationships.
(30 degrees, 1 sign apart):
minor harmonious aspect. It is considered important to some astrologers
in natal astrology. It is similar to sextile but minor, It also
can mitigate other inharmonious aspects.
(45 degrees, 1-1/2 signs apart):
minor inharmonious aspect. This causes friction and irritation
between planets in aspects. This causes mild stress and tension.
(135 degrees, 4-1/2 signs apart):
little more minor than Semi-Square. This causes irritation, aggravation
(150 degrees, 5 signs apart or Inconjunct):
aspect is another minor inharmonious one. It suggests a need

Looking at your natal chart, (click
here to receive a free natal chart wheel by email) determine
what planets are TRINED each other. Which planet is the faster
of the two. Denote the aspect. As an example if Pluto and Mercury
are trined, Mercury is the faster of the two planets so it would
be written like so:
Now find the SQUARES in your Chart.
your natal chart comes with an aspectarian,
study ALL your planetary aspects and the wheel chart. Practice
counting the signs between planets to verify the aspectarian
