  • Conjunction 0° (orb 8°). The conjunction is a major point in the chart, giving strong emphasis to the planets involved. The planets will act together to outside stimulus and act on each other
  • Opposition 180° (orb 8°). The opposition is indicative of tension, conflict and confrontation, due to the polarity between the two elements involved. Stress arises when one is used over the other, causing an imbalance; but the opposition can work well if the two parts of the aspect are made to complement each other in a synthesis
  • Trine 120° (orb 8°). The trine indicates harmony, and ease of expression, with the two elements reinforcing each other. The trine is a source of artistic and creative talent, but can be a ‘line of least resistance’ to a person of weak character
  • Square 90° (orb 8°). The square indicates frustration, inhibitions, disruption and inner conflict, but can become a source of energy and activation to a person determined to overcome limitations
  • Sextile 60°(orb±6°). The sextile is similar to the trine, but of less significance. It indicates ease of communication between the two elements involved, with compatibility and harmony between them]
  • Quincunx 150°(orb±3°). The quincunx indicates difficulty and stress, due to incompatible elements being forced together. It can mean an area of self neglect in a person’s life (especially health), or obligations being forced on a person. The quincunx can vary from minor to quite major in impact. An aspect of ambivalence.
  • Retrograde: A planet is retrograde when it appears to move backwards across the sky when seen from the earth. Although it is not an aspect, karmic astrologers believe that it should be included for consideration in the chart as it signifies misuse of the energies of the retrograde planet in past lives by misuse or fear of development. A karmic release of these energies is determined by a direct station in the secondary progressions.
