The origins of analyzing planetary movement and determining the meaning of the relationships between different planets they make while they move across the sky are very old.
The discipline which aims to determine personality traits or future events by deciphering the placements of planets in different signs as well as the aspects they form.
Aspects represent relationships between planets formed during planetary movements and in the natal chart they are aspects between planets in the exact moment of birth. The aspects have a strong influence on the person’s character and their life events.
The main or major aspects are the Sextile, Conjunction, Trine, Square, and Opposition.
There are also minor aspects which can also be very important for the person’s character if the aspect is exact. Exact aspects are the most important for forming the person’s character and destiny.
The Sextile is a beneficial aspect. This is an aspect similar to the Trine, only Trine is considered more fortunate. This aspect enables the planets to express their nature openly and is not blocking their energy like negative aspects can do.
The Sextile enables the planets to cooperate and allow the person to make the most of their best traits.
The Sextile aspect is formed when two planets find themselves at a distance of 60° apart from one another. The orb for this aspect is around 5° which means that it tolerates a distance of 55°- 65°.
Sextiles are naturally formed between complementary signs, like air and fire, and earth and water. They create the person’s talents and skills, which are usually related to areas ruled by the signs and the houses where the planets are placed.
Because it represents an easy flowing energy, and opportunities, this aspect can make the person unambitious and lazy.
Opportunities come to them usually without much effort and they often miss them expecting another one to come.
With such an attitude these people are wasting their time and they often don’t manage to use their full potential, unlike people with challenging aspects which are used to fight for everything they want.
A person with many Sextile aspects in their natal chart should be aware not to allow themselves to miss important opportunities and chances in life and become completely inactive because things often seem to fall into their lap.
Sextile activated by transits and progressions brings new fortunate opportunities into the person’s life, for growth and development of their talents.
This period often indicates a time when some people might enter the person’s life which could help them accomplish some goals in an easy way.
