Plotting The Aspects

Do not be put off from calculating the aspects. Though they can seem forbidding, if you follow these simple rules you'll not go far wrong.

golden rule FouR: For a planet to be in aspect with another they must share the same shading.

C THE conjunction This is is formed when two planets fall in the same segment of the same sign.

X A the positive Aspects The sextile is formed when two planets that share the same shaded segment are two signs, or roughly 60°, apart. The Trine is formed when two planets sharing the same shaded segment are four signs, or roughly 120°, apart. These are joined by a red or fine black line.

Aspects The square is formed when two planets sharing the same shaded segment are three signs, or roughly 90°, apart. The opposition is formed when two planets sharing the same shaded segment are seven signs, or roughly 180°, apart (directly opposite each other on the chart). They are joined by a black or somewhat thicker line.

TT THE quincunx This aspect is formed when two planets that share the same shaded segment are five signs, or roughly 150°, apart. On the diagram the black dotted line which joins them, indicates that the quincunx is a minor, but still reasonably important, aspect.

It quite often happens that one planet will make several aspects to a group of other planets in the same chart, so that distinct patterns build up. If a planet receives several aspects from others it is regarded as being of increased importance in the interpretation, and especially so if the planet happens to be the Sun, Moon, or Ascendant Ruler.
