Astrology is a necessary tool to use when we want to discover more about a person and their traits. It is also useful to determine possible life events and the person’s destiny. Astrological predictions have been used for centuries with great success.
The way astrology works is to decipher the planetary placements in the natal chart of the person, the signs and the house in natal chart where they are placed, as well as the aspects their planets make.
Aspects are а very important factor in determining the person’s traits as well as their destiny, especially if they are exact. Тhey represent relationships between natal planets which happen when the planets form certain angles between themselves.
There are main or major aspects and minor aspects.
Major aspects have the most significance in determining someone’s personality and destiny, but minor aspects can also be very important when they are exact.
Major or main aspects are the Conjunction (0°), Trine (120°), Square (90°), Sextile (60°), and Opposition (180°).
Minor aspects are the Semi-Sextile (30°), the Semi-Square (45°), Novile (40°), etc. Usually events predetermined by the natal chart tend to manifest when major aspects get triggered by exact transits and progressions.
Sextiles are harmonious aspects. They fall into the category of major aspects. A Sextile is formed when two planets have an angle of 60° between them. This aspect has a tolerance of up to 5° (from 55 to 65 degrees).
The Sextile aspect helps to create a harmonious bond between two planets and allows them to cooperate. The energy of the planets connected with the Sextile aspect flows freely and allows the person to make the most of these planets’ traits.
Sextile is an aspect similar to the Trine which is why some astrologers call it “the lesser Trine”.
Sextiles are formed naturally between signs of complementary nature, like fire and air signs and water and earth signs. Planets which form Sextiles enable each other to express their nature fully and perform their best.
Sextiles form talents and skills, usually in the areas ruled by the two planets that form a sextile. The talents tend to be discovered or developed during major transits or progressions involving the planets that form a Sextile.
Sextiles are aspects which bring good things into the person’s life, but they can sometimes have a negative effect because they make the person lazy and unambitious.
These people often have many opportunities to grow and use their talents, which makes them inactive and deprives them of the motivation to fight for what they want. They know that another chance is coming and they don’t have a problem with missing chances.
That causes them to waste time and usually don’t achieve much.
Transits and progressions creating Sextiles mark the periods where the person might experience abundance of opportunities to achieve their desires.
During these times the person might encounter someone or several people that could help them achieve their dreams in an easy way and without much effort.
