What are Aspects?

Aspects 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. Click here to see an example.

Conjunction 0°

Major: 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.

Sextile 60°

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.

Semisextile 30°

Minor: This is considered one of the weaker aspects of the chart but none the less can have influence on the planets involved.

Semisquare: 45°:

Minor: Also considered a weaker aspect of the chart. This angle results in planetary energies that conflict in subtle tension and difficulties.

Quintile: 72°

Major or minor depending on the astrologer you talk to. It has a positive influence.

Square: 90°

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.

Trine: 120°

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 happily married.

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, it’s what you do with what you’ve 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

Sesquiquadrate: 135°

Minor: This aspect can be challenging because the planetary energies are in conflict in determined tension, control is required.

Inconjunct: 150°

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.

Opposition: 180°

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.
