Understanding aspects in astrology:


Aspects are the angles that planets form to each other in a zodiac wheel as they move through the sky. Each angle means something different, here is your cheat sheet.


Remember that each planet has their own unique personality and that each one governs a different arena of life, the way they affect us has to do with what sign they're located in at any given time as well as the aspect they're forming within each other.


Today we will be focusing on the five major aspects


If two or more planets are within 0 degrees of each other on a zodiac wheel it is called a conjunction.


Planets that are 60 degrees apart are called sextile.

Planets that are 90 degrees apart form a square

Planets that are 120 degrees apart form a trine.


Two or more planets that are 180 degrees apart or directly across from each other form an opposition.


Square and opposition are hard aspects meaning they are about more difficulty and struggle.


Sextile and trine are considered soft aspects as they are gentler and seem to be more positive and auspicious.


A conduction can go either way depending on the planets involved.

Overall it all depends on the planets involved, you can definitely have a not so comfortable sextile and a very helpful square.
