Conjunction Zero degrees
separation (the two chart
elements are in the same place), eight degree orb (the elements can
up to eight degrees apart).
Conjunct symbol is rarely used in a
such as the one above; it is usually clear at a glance if two chart
are close enough to be Conjunct.
a conjunction occurs, the two
elements tend to reinforce each other’s influence. Whether this is
or uncomfortable for the native often depends on other Aspects to the
Sextile Sixty degrees
separation, five degree orb.
This is a comfortable Aspect, indicating that the two chart elements
create opportunities and open doors for each other.
Square Ninety degrees
separation, eight degree orb.
This is an uncomfortable Aspect, indicating that putting energy or
one element will take energy away from the other.
Trine One hundred and
twenty degrees separation,
six degree orb. A comfortable Aspect, this usually indicates two chart
that work together smoothly and often seemingly effortlessly.
Inconjunct One hundred and
fifty degrees of separation,
one degree orb. Also called a “Quincunx”. This Aspect often indicates
unfulfilled expectations between chart elements. It is generally
hundred and eighty degrees of separation, eight degree orb. Oppositions
indicate the need to compromise; however unlike a Square, putting
one element will also automatically reinforce the other. Like
other Aspects on the Opposing elements often determine whether this is
or uncomfortable Aspect for the native.
the chart above,
Uranus (seven degrees Scorpio) is
Conjunct to the Ascendant (six degrees Scorpio) with one degree of
Uranus’ unpredictability and creation of “ah-ha” moments will probably
be a big
part of how people initially experience the native when meeting him
face-to-face (the Ascendant).
the Ascendant and Uranus form a
Venus, (the Ascendant is sixty five degrees away, Uranus is sixty four,
just within the orb to form a Sextile) which is in Capricorn, in the
means that the native’s demeanor (Uranus-Ascendant
will provide opportunities (Sextile) to be responsible (Capricorn) by
romantically attracting women (Venus) he will meet in his everyday life
way to state this is that something about the way he
himself tends to attract women who feel they need to be more
that he tends to meet these women over the course of his everyday
than at clubs, at work, through family, etc.
introduction provided by these articles to the
various ingredients of a chart, most people will still need a lot of
practice to consistently read a full chart accurately (if you can read
well just after reading these articles, you truly have a gift and may
consider becoming a professional astrologer).
as I have hinted
times in these articles, there are other things astrologers consider in
to fine-tune their interpretations.
these articles have
given you an idea of what someone is talking about when they throw
astrological jargon into the middle of a discussion, and possibly some
reading their own chart (if they have had it done) and to know whether
astrology is something you want to pursue further.
