Can I ask about certain aspects? Ex: I have a few that are semisextile, inconjunct, semisquare, and sesquiquadrate:
I have my ascendent (cancer) that’s semisextile my northnode (Gemini)
My sun (Aquarius) inconjunct with Imum Coeli (Virgo)
My Jupiter (Leo) that’s in retrograde is sesquiquandrate with my Venus (Sagittarius)
I honestly have a lot of these aspects but I don’t really understand what they are and what it means. Sorry for the misspelling
I am not a fan of the minor aspects. I know for instance that is a semisextile is just a fancy sex term for inconjunct (which many people use for planets next to and 6 spaces apart from each other.) An inconjunction just translates out to planets that are in each other’s blind spots. It doesn’t mean they don’t work together, as a matter of fact the semi-sextile/inconjunct does have power.
Planets next to each other by sign support the objectives of each other and do work together. While theoretically, the planets may be “blind to each other” they do have roles that are influential to one another. This happens basically because every house in the horoscope is a continuation of building on the themes. Thus Semi-sextile planets build on each other because the planets are in houses next to one another.
How this works in practical function?
Say you have Planets A and B in sextile 30 degrees apart over two signs. In this situation, Planet b is “2nd” to the planet and can be responsible for the “gains of” planets a’s manifesting efforts. With the reverse scenario, Planet A is 12th from planet B, making it the foundation of support that helps planet B manifest its results. So they work together and have a purpose.
The “6th placement” inconjunction which resides between the opposition and trine (150 degrees) is more of a problem. Number 6 in astrology is associated with conflict and stress. I kind of fore-see these planets always in a bit of conflict due to being so far apart. They don’t share the same element, mode, or gender, so working together towards anything is a complete headache, mostly because the resources, style of working, and type of action the planets in signs that are inconjunct want to take is so different.
sesquiquadrate ….Ya I read around a lot of sources and many have discussed how it can trigger external events more so than effecting internally. Thus if this is true you would see results like accidents be triggered by the lord of the year when active in the sesquiquandrate.
