Aspects of Astrology The more precise, the more powerful and dominant a component will be in forming character and bringing about transformation. The term "major aspects" refers to specific degrees of angularity. These are 0 degrees (conjunction), 60 degrees (sextile), 90 degrees (square), 120 degrees (trine), and 180 degrees (trine). Although not considered major aspects, other angles exist, such as 30 degrees (quintile) and 42.5 degrees (quadrant).
There are 12 major aspects in all, but only 8 of them are visible from the Earth's surface. These are shown in figure 1 below.
The 4 invisible aspects are represented by small dots at the ends of the lines connecting each planet with the one it opposes. They can only be seen in astrological charts or in solar or lunar transits.
Invisible planets affect an individual's chart in several ways. First, they provide support for or against the expression of traits associated with the planets they oppose. For example, if Mars is opposed by Saturn, then someone who has Mars in their chart would likely have a hard time controlling themselves when angry. Second, they influence how individuals perceive themselves and others around them. For example, if Venus is opposed by Mars, then someone who feels like a "softie" might feel like everyone else is cold and insensitive too.
There are also essential, powerful, and unfortunate degrees, as well as degree symbols for all 360 degrees. The ecliptic is represented as a 360-degree circle in an astrology chart. Beginning with Aries at 0 degrees, each of the twelve astrological signs occupies 30 degrees of the 360-degree circle. The remaining six degrees are divided among the other planets: Jupiter receives its blessing from Saturn, Mars receives its curse from Uranus, and so on.
Thus there are three essential degrees, which include the sign you select when creating a chart. The second important degree is the house that houses your natal planet. The third is the angle between your natal planet and the horizon, called your ascendent. There are also fortunate and unfortunate angles.
The essential degrees are always shown as small circles while the favorable or unfavorable angles are shown as large or small circles respectively. You can see examples of these different types of degrees in figure 1 below. In this example, the native's natal chart is detailed by applying the techniques discussed here to his birth data. His natal chart shows the following: His sun is in Aries, so this is an appropriate sign for him to study. His moon is in Aquarius, which means that he is creative and intellectual, but may not relate well to others because he thinks for himself. His Mercury is in Gemini, which indicates that he has a quick mind and is good with words.
The traits assigned to the rising sign, the sun, the moon, and planets deemed to be most relevant at the time of each individual's birth are then compared with the results on the other person to evaluate compatibility. The method of determining relationships between the signs is called astrology.
Based on this method, some people are said to be "sun signs" or "moon signs", while others are considered "earth signs" or "air signs". There are also some combinations that appear more than others. For example, there are more people who are both sun and moon signs than there are those who are both earth and air signs. These categories are not fixed, however; many people have some degree of overlap between their solar system members.
There are two methods used by most astrologers to determine a person's sun sign: the sun in the sky method and the rising sign method. The sun in the sky method uses the position of the Sun at birth to predict a person's sign based on where it rises each day. The rising sign method uses the position of the Moon or one of Jupiter's moons (meteorites) at birth to make the same prediction.
People who were born during different times of the year will notice differences between the predictions made using these two methods.
The opposition is formed by two or more planets or horoscope points separated by a 180-degree angle, i.e. on opposite sides of the zodiac. As the name implies, resistance is primarily a component of conflict. 30 degrees Celsius (Semi-sextile).
The opposition between two planets indicates that they are acting as antagonists to each other. The idea of opposition is important because it is one of the basic concepts in astronomy and astrology. It can be applied to three different types of relationships: between two stars in the sky, between a planet and the Sun, and between two planets. In all cases, the concept of opposition means that they are directly opposing each other.
When two stars are in opposition, this means that they are on opposite sides of the sky from each other and that their paths across the celestial sphere are at right angles. For example, the star Regulus is located in Leo and it is opposed to Saturn which is located in Capricorn. This means that they are on opposite sides of the sky from each other and that their paths will not cross during daytime hours. Instead, Regulus will rise after Saturn has set while Saturn will rise after Regulus has gone down.
A planet can be in opposition to the Sun, but more often it is in conjunction with the Sun.
Different astrological stars, signs, and planetary bodies all have an impact on your personality. Aside from crossing two periods or signs, the planets, the sun, the rising sun, and seasons all have methods of affecting your personality.
Your zodiac sign also has an effect on how you are characterized by others, as well as yourself. For example, people who are born under the sign of Aries are said to be brave and hardworking, with traits such as determination and ambition. Those born under the sign of Taurus are described as reliable and stable, with attributes such as patience and diligence. Finally, those born under the sign of Gemini are seen as witty and curious, with characteristics such as sociability and adaptability.
Although your zodiac sign does not completely determine your character, it can still offer some insight into your nature. For example, someone who is born under the sign of Aries may feel that they can take on the world alone because they believe in themselves. However, if they were to meet someone who is also born under the sign of Aries, they would find that they have little in common with each other because they are both determined and ambitious. As another example, someone who is born under the sign of Gemini might think that they can talk anyone into anything, but in reality, they would find that most people want something in return for their help.
