Aspects can be a source of confusion for the beginner astrologer, maybe some of you can help...

Cancer and Libra = Square

Cancer and Capricorn = Opposition

Cancer and Aries = Square (right?)

So, relative to Cancer what would be a quincunx or a semisquare etc...?

What kind of angle does a Cancer/Taurus create? Can you see where I am going with this?

bee,

There are two types of aspects:
- aspects by sign
- aspects by degree

There are MANY different aspects, the most common of which are:
- conjunct (any signs in the same sign or any planets/points 0 degree apart)
- sextile (any signs two signs apart or any planets/points 60 degrees apart)
- square (any signs three signs apart or any planets/points 90 degrees apart)
- trine (any signs four signs apart or any planets/points 120 degrees apart)
- quincunx (any signs five signs apart or any planets/points 150 degrees apart)
- opposition (any signs 6 signs apart or any planets/points 180 degrees apart)

For example:
Cancer and Libra are 3 signs apart (Cancer-Leo, Leo-Virgo, Virgo-Libra), so Cancer is square to Libra by sign

Aspecting,

Tim

wilsontc,

But the (median) degrees for "sign aspects" are the same as the "aspects by degrees" right? The only difference being that the "aspects by degree" are for aspects between planets and points, correct me if wrong.

So, using Cancer as a reference point:

Cancer/Aries = Square (90 degrees)
Cancer/Taurus = Sextile (60 degrees)
Cacner/Gemini= Semi-sextile (30 degrees)
Cancer/Cancer = Conjunction (0 degrees)
Cancer/Leo = Semi-sextile (30 degrees)
Cacner/Virgo = Sextile (60 degrees)
Cancer/Libra = Square (90 degrees)
Cancer/Scorpio = Trine (120 degrees)
Cancer/Saggitarius= Quincunx (150 degrees)
Cancer/Capricorn = Opposition (180 degrees)
Cancer/Aquarius = Quincunx (150 degrees)
Cancer/Pisces = Trine (120 degrees)


How's it look? So whats happening with signs one sign apart?

bee,

That sounds right to me. The signs which are one sign (or 30 degrees) apart are called "semi-sextile" but I do not use this aspect.

At long last,

Tim

Bee,

Quincunx information from my previous post:

quote:
- quincunx (any signs five signs apart or any planets/points 150 degrees apart)

If I misunderstood your question, let me know.

If you have not already looked there, information on aspect interpretation is available at my astrological website on Step 6: http://www.geocities.com/wilsontctc

Quoting and plugging,

Tim

hello,

when talking aspects you can say trine by sign (meaning the energies blend easily) but you always go by degrees.

It is also possible to have a square in signs that are in the same element

Example: Sun 27 Scorpio square Moon 1 Pisces (thats 94 degrees, and falls within orb)

an inconjunct (quincunx) would be the sign next to (either side) of the planet opposing. It has to be within a 3 degree orb so if you have a planet at 15 Aries then 15 Virgo or Scorpio will make the inconjunct.

Energy of the inconjunct is both hard and easy. It lies half way between a trine and an opposition. Usually an aspect of circumstance out of your control.
