Major ASPECTS

Ordered from simplist to identify to increasingly complex

Conjunction-symbol.svg Conjunction – When 2+ planets are seemingly very close to each other

“The conjunction (0°) is the circle divided by one (in which the conjunction can be termed as 360° apart, which is the same as 0° in a circle). This is a very dynamic aspect, since it marks a strong focalized potential for expression along with a tendency for direct action and self-dramatization. The two planets in conjunction are blended together, fused, and intensified. Planets in conjunction must be interpreted as a blend in which the planets work together. This can be a good thing if the two planets get along (like say, Venus and the Moon), but it can be inharmonious if the two planets are incompatible (like say, Mars and Neptune).”

 

Opposition-symbol.svg Opposition –  When 2 planets are directly across from each other

Astrology Opposition

Trine-symbol.svg Trine – When 3+ Planets make an equilateral triagle pattern

Astrology Trine

Square-symbol.svg Square – When 3 planets make a Right angle on the chart

Astrology Square

Sextile-symbol.svg Sextile – When intersecting lines make a star pattern

“The sextile aspect (60°) is the circle divided by six. It represents an easy flow of opportunities or ideas that, if acted upon, will help realize the individual’s goals. It can also indicate talents. This is a harmonious aspect in which the energies of the planets involved collaborate well and work comfortably together. However, while this is traditionally a positive aspect, it is not dynamic. This aspect is rather passive, and it does not necessarily bring an impetus to do anything. The sextile aspect can be characterized as a lack of friction. The main reason that it’s considered positive is that it will not disrupt anything. This is usually pleasant, but can sometimes go unnoticed.”
