PLANETARY ASPECTS and SYMBOLS|
Simply put: An aspect is a mathematical, geometrical and angular relationship between planets. In other words, the planets will form a relationship with one another just like people do. Some of these planetary relationships are antagonists and some are synergists, just like human relationships. All of the planets are placed on a 360° wheel and then the angular relationship is calculated between any two of them. It's either Good chemistry or challenging chemistry. Good chemistry is obviously Good and challenging chemistry has the potential to be Good if you use it to learn, grow and develop.
You will find in the Natal Charts that I write that I have incorporated those aspects which will have solutions to the challenges, conflicts or obstacles from some of the other aspects.
If you have an aspect that is pointing to the answer, then by all means follow up with the clue that is given. The clue may come in the form of: patience, aggressiveness, compassion, goals, creativity, etc.
When I write of an "ORB," this means that the planets are within 8° or less from one another. When two planets are 8° or less from one another, they will form an aspect as if they are in complete alignment. The 8° "ORB" or less is the standard "ORB" that most astrologers will use. Most astrologers also agree that the Sun and Moon "ORB" may be as much as 10° - 12°.
