Chapter 7: (just part of it) The Aspects (Radix, Transit & Partnership)


The Aspects

Aspects between planets are the fine tuning of time!
In a Horoscope they determine if someone has a easy, or a hard live.
Aspects between Transit- and Radix- Positions determine the quality of time a particular person is in, was in, or will be in. Aspects of Radix- and Transit-Planets to the MC / IC and Asc. / Desc. axes determine the quality of the exchange between a particular person and his/her environment (such as family, partners, the public in general or simply their own attitude towards others).
However, a good aspect between two rather difficult degree positions may overall be less exiting than a bad aspect between two really good degree positions.
Example:  on 21  in the II. House in a  aspect to  on 14  in the V. House. The Sun in the II. House should bring financial success, the Saturn in the V. House might not be such a exiting setting, but it would make steady, reliable and able to achieve slow progress. The Trine aspect between those two planets should slowly bring financial success and stable well being. If we check now the two degree positions; 14 Scorpio is rather made to enjoy life than work hard and 21 Cancer is just taking it as it comes anyway. So, the steady efforts that would be required to make the promises of the aspect and the house positions become definite, are simply not guaranteed by these degrees. Nevertheless, the whole constellation will give this person easy money. Naturally not millions, but enough to enjoy a easy, simple living.
As said already, the following list of aspects has multipurpose:
A : The Radix aspects
B : The Transit aspects
(please remember that Transit aspects count only from 1 before to 1 after the precise Radix position of a planet,
or of MC / IC and Asc./ Desc..).
C : The effect in partnerships.
(Aspect comparison between the planets of two Horoscopes).

Sun Aspects
Sun  /  Sun
+
As a two day transit very vitalizing effect that can bring new impulses. In the VI. House stabilizing health, I. and X. House certainly a rush of self confidence and stronger appearance. P : Similar goals and interests.
-
Two uncertain days, with difficulties in everything that seems to be important, all according to the house in which it happens P : Will create frustrations and conflicts.
C
This will happen every year around the birthday and it will simply double the position as it is in the Radix Horoscope. P : They may find similar goals to achieve, but if they are going to do it in a united fashion is dependent on the degree position of both suns.

Sun  /  Moon
+
Great mood, harmony between energy and feelings. Fortune and success in the fields that are indicated by the houses involved. Will recover from illness or mishaps easily and usually have a good relation with their environment in general. P : Unity in feelings and matters of the hearth, go along very well.
-
Worries and unpredictable moods can frustrate, and make feel rather uncomfortable. This can also affect all sorts of relations. Perhaps their attitude dates back to their childhood where they already had problems to develop them selfs. P : Very different tempers and problems between ones energy and the others moods.
C
Often switching, from powerful activities to passive and contemplative caring for others, specially for their loved ones or for kids in general. If the VI. House is involved there might be some health problems. For men probably easier to handle than for woman. P : As +.
....other portion of planet aspects not available on excerpt

Sun  /  Asc. , Desc.
+
Vital, self a sure and soulful. This persons will have a positive attitude towards partners and almost everybody else too. Nevertheless, they will be dominant. Acknowledgment of their personality is certain.

Notice: While Radix aspects -of any planet- to the Asc. / Desc. and MC / IC axis are permanent (at least as long as a person lives in the region where those aspects are in effect), the Transit aspects can often be avoided by traveling -for the time they last- to a place outside the orb zone of that particular Transit aspect.
-
A rather weak constitution is the result here. Efforts to gain acknowledgment can result in disappointment and tension. They try to dominate too but haven't got the right expressions to gain the necessary respect. In case of the opposition they will have a good relation with a rather helpful, generous and influential partner and a certain cleverness in dealing with others which should bring them some success, even if it all goes on the cost of their own individuality.
C
Strong personality. Able to shine in total harmony with their surrounding. Their strong constitution will help them to stay healthy and to always have enough energy to achieve their personal goals.
P : All positive aspects with the Asc. / Desc. and any of the planets will result in respect and approval of that persons individual  attitude towards partnerships (including the conjunction with the Desc.), while negative aspects (including the conjunction with the Asc.) will bring disapproval or disliking of that persons individual attitudes.

Sun  /  MC , IC
+
Well being at home as well as in public. These people have the ability to be leaders and still go along with other important people easily. As persons in a important public position they might gain popularity.
-
Unclear ideas and their negative attitude towards people in superior positions (perhaps starting already by their parents) will hamper their attempts for success. Their desire to be powerful will trigger opposing attitudes in others, also around the family (except for the opposition, which is a conjunction to the IC at the same time. That will let these people have at least a good family hood).
C
Successful public live, as in +, but a rather tense situation at home.
P : All positive aspects with the MC / IC  and any of someone elses planets will result in a positive situation around home, family and the partners plus support for their ambitions in job and society, while negative aspects (including the conjunction to the MC) will lead to disharmonious tensions around the home of these partners.

Moon  Aspects
(Notice: Moon Transits don't have to be considered, because they only last for 3 to 4 hours.)
Moon  /  Moon
+
In a Radix not possible, as Transits not of interest. P : Harmony and interest to team up because they have similar emotional structures.
-
Same story for Radix and Transit. P :  Off and on they will have emotional differences which will trigger a lack of care about the others feelings.
C
All as +, also P.

Moon  /  Mercury
+
Intelligent, charming and very talented for communications. Alert mood, very open for everything new. They make very nice companions too and understand the mechanics of basic daily living very well. The communication business or everything that has to do with food may be their most profitable career. P : Both can sense the thoughts of the other, without making to many words, but they also have a good verbal exchange.
-
Restless, superficial and therefore rather anti intellectual. Because they are easily distracted by minor things they have a hard time to get their thoughts together. Daily live seems to be to complicated for them. Above all they talk and talk, unfortunately most of the time about nothing at all. If the X. House is involved they will be misunderstood in public or others talk about them behind their backs. With the VI. House involved they will have nervous problems with their digesting system. P : Oversensitive reactions and misunderstandings will create bad moods.
C
Very sensitive about what others think of them. So it will be the environment that makes these persons mood. Otherwise it can be as in +, as well as in -. P : As +.

Mercury  Aspects
Mercury  /  Mercury
+
Active thinking. Talent for the written and spoken words. Can find success as mediators, by traveling or exchange of information. Can see, analyze and decide all in an instant of a second. P : Intellectually stimulating for both. Accept and understand oneanothers ways and ideas.
-
Not practical enough, illogical, therefore making mistakes, specially with the exchange of words, in business as well as within private contacts. P : They usually have different opinions and as a result of that there will be misunderstandings and disorientation.
C
As +, so is P.

Mercury  /  Venus
+
In a Radix is only the hexagon and the quintile possible because these 2 planets are never more than 72 apart.
They have a intelligent and very pleasant attitude towards others, know how to chat on a sophisticated level and have a refreshing effect on others. P : Sympathy and respect for one another, go along very harmoniously.
-
Little problems happen to them because they try to be kind but do that in a fashion that will often be misunderstood. Basically more interested in easy living than in anything serious. P : Some conflicts will occur because one is off putting, the other to pretentiously.
C
Mostly as +, but they are often rather superficial saloon types who seem to live just for pleasure. P : As +
....other portion of planet aspects not available on excerpt

Mercury  /  MC , IC
+
Intellect and ambition will be used in the same direction. Interest to learn and exchange thoughts will help them to get ahead, to gain acknowledgment. There will also be a harmonious exchange between home and job. Both fields will be used successfully for intellectual and practical advances.
-
To many ideas at the same time or simply wrong thinking at all will lead into misguided efforts on the job as well as in their public attitude or their behavior towards a partner. In case of the opposition they will most likely live, or grow up, in a intellectual family or home where lots of thoughts will be exchanged.
C
Everything that needs a intellectual understanding, such as education and science, but also everything that has to do with words, such as all medias, will suit these people well. On the other hand they will not enjoy home and family life to much.

Venus Aspects
Venus  /  Venus
+
Open and outgoing, therefore in the right state of mind to meet others. Also very sensitive for artistic expressions as well as impressions. Longing for affection and tenderness. P : Love, tolerance and understanding will create harmony between them. They will also have the same social interests.
-
Bad taste and unfulfilled desires. Therefore spending to much money for distractions. Others may be rather unfriendly to them. P : Little problems, perhaps because they come from different social backgrounds or societies.
C
As +, so is P.

Venus  /  Mars
+
Popular around the opposite sex and also already early interested in sexual activities. Very sensual and passionate. There is a talent for artistic expressions which will be used in a joyful, even playful way. P : Naturally THE aspect for sexual attraction.
-
They could become victims of their libido, use other people only for their sexual desires or become abused by others for the same cause. Their passion is often out of normal control. Their behavior is in general somewhat primitive and rude. Men with this aspect could be the typical rapists. Naturally they are also not faithful and have furthermore difficulties to keep their money together, this specially also because they don't like to work much anyway. P : All though strong sexual attraction too there will be some struggles and little fights between these two.
C
Passionately involved with whatever is indicated by the house this conjunction happens in. Impulsive as they are they may do most things to quickly, without thinking first. Basically the trend is rather as in -. For woman this could be another indication for problems when giving birth. P : As +.
....other portion of aspects not available on excerpt

Mars Aspects
Mars  /  Mars
+
Spontaneous impulsive acting. Capable of running down obstacles and to push own missions, plans or ideas ahead. Passionately involved characters who can and will do it their own way. Very active as they are they know also how to catch good opportunities right when they occur.
P : Can work for common projects together and will seldom ever have fights amongst one another.
-
Unpleasant and hard dynamic, affective actions or simply to pushy behavior. Besides of a loss of sympathy they may also get feverish very easily with that attitude or  involved in accidents, waste their energies or lose money big time if the II. House is involved. Problems will also occur in partnerships because they act to harsh. P : Aggressions between these two will keep them from doing anything together.
C
Also a rush of vitality which can be as +, on a normal level, or turn into the same as said under -, if out of control. P : Frictions between these two are most likely, if they lead to sexual excitement or not is unclear.

Mars  /  Jupiter
+
Practical talents, but also full of enthusiasm and joy of living. They will be rather successful in any sort of business or investment, specially if the II. House is involved. So, their full efforts will always be rewarded. Above all that they do not forget those who are not so lucky, they like to give real help. They also like to be as independent as possible. P : They will help each other with all their plans and efforts.
-
Rebellious pretenders who oppose any rules made by others or the community. This may cause trouble with the legal system sooner or later. In their personal relations there will be crises too. They may have a very destructive character in general, a extreme attitude. Honesty is also not exactly their usual best. P : Getting quickly impatient with one another. Happiness will not be achieved.
C
Very brave, with a talent to spend money as fast as they earn it. Whatever they do they do it with total enthusiasm. Above that they are very self confident and would never accept no for an answer. Initiative as they are they look sometimes like fanatics. Naturally they would fit perfectly into a career in some military style enterprise. P : As +.
....other portion of planet aspects not available on excerpt

Mars  /  Asc. , Desc.
+
Approach their goals, or other people, in a powerful and direct fashion. So they will be respected in their environment. They also like teamwork and comradeship. With their energy and ambitions they will live a very active live.
-
To much action and aggression to find a good partnership, or to be popular. Disappointments may make them even more aggressive. This can go as far as physical harm, to them selfs as well as to others. Separations from partners are very likely, perhaps even violent ones. They tend to imagine that everyone else is a competitor.
C
Determined to fight for a leading position in their surrounding. With their pushy nature clashes with others, as well as their partners, are almost certain. They are also often to impulsive, unable to think before they act. Physically painful experiences or separations from others may be the result.

Mars  /  MC , IC
+
Capable of consequent and relentless efforts which will eventually bring acknowledgment by the public. With sheer determination and energy they usually reach their goals. With the profit from their efforts they will find everything they need to make also their family and home as happy as possible.
-
They don't go along, neither with their family, their colleges on the job nor others in general. This situation will eventually accumulate and result in impatient, rather mindless activities that destroy more than they could build up. Changes on their jobs will be forced upon them. In case of the opposition their home will be something of a emotional or sexual battlefield where tensions are always high.
C
Forceful and determined. These people may seek a career where energy and force can be used to get ahead, such as the armed forces, the private industrial sector or even politics. With this attitude they will neglect their home or family.

Jupiter Aspects
Jupiter  /  Jupiter
+
Success thanks to a noble character and legal relations. Good health and the ability to show off in the best light. Interest in learning and to broaden up the own horizon. All this will result in fortune and a good social position, depending of course on the houses involved. P : Understand each other well and find joy in good humor. They will also help and protect one another.
-
Rather lose morals and therefore not very reliable or faithful. They just can't withstand temptations and are above that also quite superficial. They are often a bit to proud. With their attitude they may end up in legal problems, specially if the IX. or the VII. houses are involved, or they are to splendid with their assets if the II. House is involved, or their liver, liquid circulation or even the stomach can - as a result of to much food -- become ill if the VI. House is involved. P : They mistrust or misunderstand each other because they have different ideologies or come basically from different societies.
C
As +, also in P.

Jupiter  /  Saturn
+
Very reliable, practical and just. They are good organizers and business people. Slowly but steady they are heading for success. With their attitude they will most certainly have a good image in public too. They like the deeper long lasting relations and may even find one that is also financially of benefit. (This depends on the II. or VIII. House of course). P : Steady and prosperous relation.
-
Misfortune because of false speculations or expectations. They also have a bad timing, and miss therefore often out on good opportunities, so their chances to excel into better positions are slim. They might just be established in an average job and find live rather boring all together. It may be that they find no relaxing times because there seems to be always someone who will disturb them. P : One tries to calm down the other, so there are differences programmed.
C
Fluctuation between optimism and pessimism. The result; it will be hard for them to achieve something. There might not be enough money for their plans or someone else puts obstacles in their way or perhaps the whole industry or business they are involved with is on the edge of a collapse, or their partners are in a similar critical state of mind. Only with a stable basis they can build up something of concrete value. P : Can either frustrate one another or supplement their different characters to a steady good relation.
....other portion of aspects not available on excerpt

Saturn Aspects
Saturn  /  Saturn
+
Considerate and serious. Ripen through insights and experiences. They will  become well balanced and friendly when in relations. With concentrated long term planned efforts they can collect material goods. P : With a similar interest in security and the same kind of motivation they will help on another.
-
Inflexible and stubborn on their way to depressions and frustration. If the VI. House is involved it will create rheumatic problems or weak bones (including the teethes). In business they will calculate with false figures or achieve in general not to much at all despite their efforts. If the II. or VIII. Houses are involved it will also financially look rather dark. P : A attitude of rivalry and distrust that may also create financial misfortune for them.
C
Effect depends very much on the Radix position and will just double that one.
P : Mostly negative reactions towards one another.
....other portion of planet aspects not available on excerpt

Saturn  /  MC , IC
+
Determined and responsible. Everything will develop a little slow, will need lots of efforts, but success will be achieved.
-
Difficulties to get anywhere, in job or in public. Well being and comfort at home will hardly ever happen. These situations will cause frustration and as a result of that also a luck of faith in the ability to achieve something. Family, landlords and people in superior positions can be hard to them. In case of the opposition they will be rather cool formal folks at home.
C
It may be possible to reach a position with prime responsibilities and a respected public image through hard working and determined efforts, but it may cost them their health and there will always be the possibility of a deep fall from grace, perhaps with its roots in their situation at home, around their family, which may not be very comfortable or heartwarming.

Uranus Aspects
Uranus  /  Uranus
+
It will be a time to start something new. Depending, as always, on the houses that are involved this can be in partnership, job, public appearance, house and home or finances. Naturally it will be a change for the better.
-
The square happens around 20 and 60 years of age, the opposition around 40. The age around 40 is classically known as the mid-life crisis. The usual, the regular seems not to be right anymore, so during this Transit aspect people tend to question their very existence. Unfortunate events may happen to them, all of a sudden. Accidents, crashes, clashes with other People or at work can make live miserable.
C
Happens only to people who grow to an age of approximately 84. It will be a crisis time.
P : The planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are for people who where born within the same few years basically in conjunction to one another. Square positions of these planets amongst each other can only occur over a gap of at least one generation. That's why young and old usually don't go that well together. For this reason those 3 planets are not considered as further significant factors in a partnership comparison.

Uranus  /  Neptune
+
Those born in the early 1940's had it all. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto all together in harmony.
This particular aspect here made idealists who like to explore new frontiers, specially in science. Through learning they grew into higher classes of  society or income.
-
Oversensitive and unstable. These people have to go through some chaotic experiencesin live and lose with it faith in their fortune. (It did hit does who where born in the 1950's only).
C
This aspect happened just recently, between 1991 and 1995, with its peak in 1993. Because it created uncertainty, illusions and pessimism it lowered the energy level as well as the trust in advancing and success. This triggered a crisis in the world of economy (because the money did not roll so easily anymore). It has been a good show about the real effect the constellations of our planets have on the way we exist. It was a rather minor, short lasting crisis, fortunately for us. But there where major turn arounds before, and there will be troubled times in the future ahaed too. At latest in the middle of the 21. century.
....other portion of aspects not available on excerpt

Neptune Aspects
Neptune  /  Neptune
+
 A time in which a person develops a deep and sensitive soul. Inspirations will give them new knowledge or new ideas in general.
-
Around the age of 40 the square occurs and around 80 the pposition will take place. As a result of illusions and unclear ideas it will be a general life crisis.
C
Happens only every 184 Years, therefore never in a human life.
....other portion of planet aspects not available on excerpt

Neptune  /  Asc. , Desc.
+
Sensible and intuitive exchange with their surrounding and desire for a peaceful quiet life stile. Also a very intimate partnership is likely. Everything inspired and beautiful is of interest.
-
Mostly unable to express them selfs properly. Others may not take them seriously or cheating and lying is involved in their exchange with others.
C
Physically rather weak, but able to see with a "third eye" things behind the outer appearance. At the same time also rather dreamy, ergo for others difficult to understand.

Neptune  /  MC , IC
+
Spiritually advancing environment. These people can use their creative fantasy to make their way, somewhere in art perhaps. They can also deal well with people in superior positions because of their good intuition. Their family life should be rather pleasant.
-
Illusions and weird visions create chaos at home and little reliability at work. They live in a sloppy dream world without to much care about responsibilities.
C
 It depends on the other aspects which fall into this conjunction and the degree positions here. A normal public image is in any case rather unlikely. These people are to much involved with their imaginations to fit into 9 to 5 jobs. Either they are to weird for anything, or they can be outstanding performers in their particular field. The situation at their home however is most likely a chaos.

Pluto Aspects
....first portion of aspects not available on excerpt

Pluto  /  Asc. , Desc.
+
Able to set individual standards in their environment. Strength to recover fast. Sophisticated senses help to make a big impact on all their efforts, particular of course in partnerships.

Legal problems can come with it too. There will be power struggles with people in strong positions. That can cause a crisis.
C
Events around these people can make it necessary for them to change their whole way of living, just like a phoenix out of the ashes.

Pluto  /  MC , IC
+
With great ambitions and initiative. A respected position around the family as well as in public or at work is guaranteed. Changing positions can also bring more benefits because they like to learn new things. They also know  how to treat more powerful people right.
-
Uncomfortable situations at home as well as at a job or in public. This can lead to abuse of energy, the constant wish to change things, crisis, sudden losses or even crashes. The existence of these people seems to be in constant jeopardy.
C
There will be tensions and fights in these persons public live or with their professional efforts. It can lift them up into powerful positions, but it can as well create crashes.

  /  MC , IC
+
Good chances to meet people with similar interests and also good for teamwork.
-
Teamwork may be bound for failure. Social live will not bring much excitement. Separations or job losses are likely.
C

Asc. / MC Aspects
(only for Radix)
+ ( and  aspects possible only)
The environment will have a general advancing effect on persons who have the two major axis in a positive angle.
- ( aspect possible only)
People who have the major axis in a square angle will experience their environment as harsh and not very advancing.
