An Introduction to Aspects and Chart Shaping in Natal Astrology by Nicholas Campion. New astrologers will sooner or later come across references to unaspected planets, dissociate aspects, aspect patterns and chart shapes.

This article, adapted from the text of Nicholas Campion's compendium of astrology - The Ultimate Astrologer (published by Hay House, 2003) - offers an introductory guide to their meaning in the birth chart. An aspect is the precise distance between any two points in a horoscope. Almost all aspects measure distances around the ecliptic. Usually aspects are formed between two planets, although aspects between any one planet and the angles (Ascendant, Descendant, MC and IC) are also considered. The aspects are used to establish how the planets combine to stimulate and moderate each other's influence. Aspects are formed by division of the circle of 360 degrees by certain numbers, and may be understood through the laws of numerology.

The tense aspects cause friction between the planets involved. Each type of aspect, therefore, has two faces. B. See-Saw Splay. Skywriter’s Impact Test for Stelliums and Multiple Conjunctions–Version 2.0. ©6-11-2011 by Donna Cunningham This is a test to measure the strength of stelliums or multiple conjunctions and therefore to find out their comparative strength. It’s similar to the tests I’ve created to measure the strength of a single planet or element in your horoscope.

They’ve been a popular feature on Skywriter—you can see links to them here: Planetary Tests. (The test for Pluto tops the list, since nearly 15,000 people have taken that test so far.) UPDATE 11/11/13: My new astrology/self help book, The Stellium Handbook: An Owner’s Manual for People with Stelliums or Triple Conjunctions is finally available.

For this test, you may wonder why I’ve assigned a certain numerical value to some chart features and a lesser one for another. Many of you will want to include dozens of asteroids, Black Lillith, the vertex, antivertex, chart ruler, and myriads of other chart features in your stellium. How to Find the Impact Score: (Download a printable version here: Stellium Test 1 page.) Capricorn Stellium – An Introduction | Capricorn Stellium. (c)August 1, 2012 by Donna Cunningham, MSW I recently made the startling discovery that every single child born on the planet in 1989 had a triple conjunction of Uranus, Neptune, and Saturn in Capricorn. The conjunction was also in range during seven months of 1988. During the winter months of both years, the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars created stelliums of as many as seven planets.

We’re talking about millions of them! Astrologers, these young people in their 20s are starting to show up for chart sessions with questions about their perplexing career and relationship issues. With tough planetary combinations like these, they’re very different from people you’ve worked with in the past. If you haven’t seen any of these folks yet, you’ll be seeing them soon because they’re just coming into the workforce and trying to sort out the major questions we all face as we enter adulthood.

It can represent, on different levels, both the ego and the higher Self or soul purpose. It rules Leo and is exalted in Aries. The Sun is the most important 'planet' in the chart and symbolizes one's will and sense of vitality. When the Sun is afflicted (poorly placed or poorly aspected) it could indicate problems with the father, or male role model.

The Sun energizes your entire chart, and planets in close relationship to the Sun (by planetary aspect) are emphasized in your personality. More about the Sun...

Astrological Aspects, Their Orb and Meaning. In astrology, an aspect is defined by the angular distance between two planets. The nature of the aspect depends on the number of degrees separating the two planets. Aspects are of utmost importance in assessing the natal chart because they help in identifying the nature of the relationship, whether hard or soft, between the energies released by the planets involved, which constitutes all the complexity and richness of the personality.

Aspects express themselves more or less strongly according to their importance, or lack of. Moreover, angles between planets never exactly match the standard definition of aspects. Thus, the exactness of the aspect, referred to as "orb" in astrology, is to be considered. If the orb is tight (almost exact aspect), the aspect is more powerful. Much smaller orbs are used in forecasting and synastry works because these techniques require that aspects be more exact if they are to be efficient.

Orbs used for natal charts Orbs used for compatibility charts. The Meaning of the Quincunx or Inconjunct Aspects in Astrology. The inconjunct or quincunx (the terms are generally used interchangeably) aspect in astrology is formed between planets that are roughly 150 degrees apart. If we use an orb of 2 degrees, the planets or points in question can be anywhere from 148 degrees to 152 degrees apart. The planets and points involved in a quincunx don't understand each other.

Unless it's an out-of-sign quincunx, the signs not only are of a different element, they are also of a different modality. For example, take Leo-Pisces. Leo is Fixed Fire, while Pisces is Mutable Water. It's difficult to see common ground between the signs. Some keywords that describe quincunxes are: redirecting, challenging, requiring adjustments, diverting. What I have found is that people with quincunxes tend to compartmentalize the two areas of life indicated by the planets and points involved.

When we express one of the planets or points involved in an opposition, the other planet or point feels "left out". Conjunction Frequencies.

This is a card that speaks of inner feelings of guilt, sorrow and confusion. It asks you to take time for inner reflection in order to overcome debilitating emotions.

Sometimes the fears derive from deep-rooted guilt, which is the most crippling of emotions. The 9 of Swords relates to the number 63/9 and gives the energy of the wisdom of Universal Love. MEANING: 9s appearing in a reading indicate the completion of events and implies that there is a focus on suffering and anxiety.

Understanding the Void-of-Course Moon by Jenni Stone The Moon makes a complete circle through the twelve signs every 28.5 days and spends approximately 2.5 days in each sign. Some Moon signs are felt more acutely than others: In the sign of Aries, for instance, the energy is physical and sometimes angry, a dynamic force that can be used to tackle tasks and start projects; the Moon in Taurus is a more laid-back and sensual urge to enjoy fine dining and good music.

As the Moon arrives in the sign of Gemini, the telephone starts ringing and the messages begin to pour in. There are, of course, other influences at work in the solar system, but the Moon is always playing "background music" that keeps us connected to the Earth and the stars. There is a time, however, when this connection is interrupted and we "float" between signs. This is the time we call the void-of-course Moon. The Moon goes void of course every two days or so, and this can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. Astrologer Celeste Teal tells how lunar node transits coincide with life events | Moon Valley Astrologer. Finding themes and patterns suggesting a certain type of event can be relatively easy. But, when it comes to timing an event, we can often use all the help we can get. The nodes of the Moon provide this timing and helps to pinpoint with more detail the particulars of an event. Timing Events with the Moon’s Nodes The North Node of the Moon, both in the natal horoscope and in its transit provides a positive influx of energy and power.

It has been identified with Jupiter and embodies a joining quality. The South Node is akin to Saturn, and may show a point of self-dissipation. It is of a separating quality. A planet in conjunction with one of the nodes in the birth chart has the influence of the appropriate node to be either an innate source of fortune and honor or one of potential mishandling and self-undoing. Since the opposing nodes hold different meanings, as they transit the horoscope, they create a double set of aspects. Nodes/Midheaven Nodes/Ascendant Nodes/Nodes Nodes/Part of Fortune. MoonPluto.
