Planetary aspects—the dynamic relationships and energy exchanges between planets—can influence birth charts in profound ways. Picking up where sun sign astrology leaves off, aspects open up new dimensions in understanding how the stars affect us.

This innovative guide challenges the conventional notion that certain planetary relationships (squares, oppositions, and conjunctions) are "bad," while harmonious ones (sextiles and trines) are "good." Using plain language, Robin Antepara explores both types and explains how each is important. Her down-to-earth, lively approach includes many case histories of famous people, ranging from historical figures to celebrities. Readers will learn how Princess Diana alchemized a square between Venus and Uranus and about Martha Stewart's problematic trine between the Sun and Mars.

Planets form angles to one another as they move through the heavens. If two planets are 90 degrees apart, they form a square. If they're 180 degrees apart, they are in opposition. Planets in aspect have twenty-four hour communication going on. The particular angle that separates any two planets describes the nature of their conversation. Astrologers use six angles most often, each of which...

Ever since I first opened Derek and Julia Parker’s book The Compleat Astrologer, I have been fascinated with the patterns formed by planets in astrological charts. One of my first astrology teachers stated definitively that it would be a mistake to become dependent on the aspect lines drawn on charts, and I happen to agree with that assessment. Nevertheless, the patterns in charts reveal a...

I have long admired the way Garrison Keillor and Molly Ivins use humor to poke fun at “uppity” people, including the Bushes, so I was saddened by her death a few days before writing this column. I decided to show you a few things that you can do with astrology by taking a good look at her birth chart. Even though I do not have a time, there is plenty to see. She had the Moon in Capricorn. In...

Mars indicates an area of life that is vitally important to your spiritual growth. Whatever path you choose, this factor will come up again and again, modifying your direction or suggesting a specific focus for your studies. This source of energy and spiritual guidance is a deeply personal and private part of your life. Others will see how it affects you, but they are unlikely to understand the...

Sun Sign information comprises the majority of astrological information available in newspapers and online. However, the simple symbology of astrology (once even employed by Carl Jung!) can help you understand the power the planets have on you.

Stars have an alluring and entrancing fascination for us, but the fixed stars are much more than a bright light to gaze at in the evening and make wishes on. Fixed stars are potent additions to your astrology chart and can add a lot of information to your chart reading, once you know what they mean and what to look for.

People are going through their mid life crises earlier than in past decades. This is partly due to the fact that some planets have been moving a bit faster than usual in recent years. Normally, things start to heat up around age 40-42, but recently ...

My journey with Chiron began in 1992 when, while browsing the shelves of the Theosophical Society bookstore in Sydney, Australia, the ultimate cliché happened: a book fell off the shelves and landed at my feet. I looked around, half expecting ...
To borrow a line from a certain much-aired credit card commercial (“what’s in your wallet?”), I pose the question, “what’s in your house?” Or, rather, your houses? I’m talking about the 12 houses that comprise a person’s astrological natal chart. ...
Like many a creative project or endeavor, the writing of Aspects has been a journey, during which I have learned as much about myself as the art and craft of astrology. The book started out with case studies of six famous people who had been through transformative experiences. I was curious about how people change, and what this would look like through an astrological lens. In writing and...
