Astrology is used for centuries as a tool to determine someone’s personality traits as well as their probable destiny. Astrology uses planets and their placements in signs and houses, and the aspects they make with other planets to discover these information.
Aspects are relationships the planets make while moving, and represent certain angles they form.
These aspects can have beneficial and malefic influence, and their strength depends on the exactness of the aspect.
The more accurate the angle is, the stronger the aspect is and the stronger its influence is.
There are major and minor aspects. Major aspects are the most responsible for our destiny and shaping our character.
These aspects are the Opposition (180°), the Square (90°), the Trine (120°), the Sextile (60°).
Minor aspects can also be significant when the angle between the planets, forming them, is exact.
Sextiles are a major aspect and are considered harmonious. The Sextile has a similar energy and influence to the Trine. This aspect is formed when there’s an angle of 60° between two planets.
The tolerance in this aspect is 5° which means the planets can be at a distance from 55° to 65°.
The aspect enables the planets to express the best in their nature as well as to cooperate to provide the person with their best gifts. Sextiles enable the planetary energy to flow freely, unlike the unharmonious aspects which block planetary energy and create obstacles.
Sextiles form naturally between signs of complementary elements, such as water and earth and fire and air. Sextiles create a cooperative and balanced energy so that the person can get the best of their traits.
Sextiles form the person’s skills and talents, and they help develop them as well, during significant transits and progressions which trigger the natal Sextile aspect.
Because Sextile brings fortunate opportunities into the person’s life and the person usually get s things done with ease, Sextiles can also have negative effects on the person because they diminish their desire to go after their goal and seize the opportunities that appear before them.
They know that opportunities come to them easily and don’t have a problem with missing chances, at the same time postponing their actions for another moment in time. Sextiles often make people lazy and waste their time and talents.
People with a lot of Sextile aspects in their natal chart often end up not using their full potential.
On the other hand, people with challenging aspects need to fight for every opportunity to come to them, and they usually become more successful in life.
Transiting and progressed Sextile aspects usually introduce fortunate opportunities into the person’s life, which can enable them to develop their abilities and progress.
Sometimes these aspects introduce some people that could help them achieve their desires or develop and use their talents.
