are angles between two planets. In the
case of Synastic Asrology--that is the
official name for the area of astrology
that studies relationships--aspects are
the angles between the planets in the
first person's birht chart and the planets
in the second person's birth chart.
Below is a description of each aspect.
to see an example.
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.
Major: This is a positive aspect
for the planets involved. This aspect
is frequently found multiple times in
the compatibility charts of couples that
are happily married.
Minor: This is considered one
of the weaker aspects of the chart but
none the less can have influence on the
Minor: Also considered a weaker
aspect of the chart. This angle results
in planetary energies that conflict in
subtle tension and difficulties.
Major or minor depending on the
astrologer you talk to. It has a positive
Major: One of the harder aspects,
it indicates the planetary energies are
in conflict. Multiple Squares are frequently
found in the compatibility charts of unhappily
married couples and couples who have divorced.
Major: Another positive aspect
where the planetary energies flow smoothly
and the connection is easy and beneficial.
These, like the Sextile, are frequently
found in the compatibility charts of people
One astrologer who claimed to have found
two horoscopes that had mostly trines
and no squares. They were the charts of
convicts. In school, they found it easier
to cheat than to study. Afterwards, they
found it easier to steal than to work.
Once again, its what you do with
what youve got. The problem with
the stressful aspects is that we tend
to accept one of the planets and reject
the other. That never works out, as we
shall see in the lists below
Minor: This aspect can be challenging
because the planetary energies are in
conflict in determined tension, control
Minor: 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 aspect.
Major: With this aspect the planetary
aspects are polarized. It is more likely
that outer events stimulate their interaction.
The challenge here is to integrate.
