As an astrologer we are interested in the relationships between and planets and where they are located in the chart. Certain positions are more prominent – on the angles in houses 1, 4, 7 and 10.
There are aspects that are seen more positively – sextile (60 degrees) and trine (120 degrees).
Other aspects are more difficult and more likely to create change in our lives – square (90 degrees), opposition (180 degrees) and conjunction (0 degrees – not strictly in aspect with each other but regarded as an aspect).
