Astrology is an old practice of determining possible events that will happen in the future.
It can be also used for determining the personal traits of an individual and the path of their destiny by interpreting the positions of planets and their aspects in the natal chart made in the moment of the person’s birth.
Although astrology has demonstrated its accuracy many times in the past, it is still not recognized as a science.
Aspects between planets can give a detailed picture about the traits and/or possible events that might be triggered by these aspects. Aspects are relationships between planets formed during planetary movement or between planets in the natal chart.
The natal chart represents a frozen picture of the sky and the planetary positions for a certain moment in time (when the person is born).
The aspects formed by the planets in this natal chart have a great influence on the person’s personal traits but they also influence the events this person might experience during their lifetime.
The main aspects are the Conjunction, Opposition, Square, Triangle and Sextile. There are many minor aspects, such as Semi-Sextile, Septile, Semi-Square, Quincunx, etc.
All aspects with tight orbs are the most important for the events that the person might experience during their lifetime as well as their character traits.
Sextile is a harmonious aspect, similar to the Trine. Some astrologers call it the “lesser Trine”. Sextile is formed when two planets form an angle of 60° degrees (the tolerance is 5° +/- or 55° to 65°).
This aspect is responsible for the harmonious relationships between planets which allows cooperation of the planets and enables them to express their potential fully.
Sextiles are formed between signs in complementary elements, like water and earth and fire and air. The energy of planets which form a Sextile is cooperative and harmonious, and the planets have the chance to express their best qualities.
Sextiles form the person’s talents which are related to the areas ruled by the planets that form a Sextile as well as the houses where these planets are placed.
People with a lot of Sextiles in their natal charts are blessed with many opportunities to expand their talents and achieve success in their desired areas.
The bad thing about this planet is the fact that easiness with which the person usually accomplishes their goals tends to make the person lazy and creates a tendency to procrastinate and postpone actions because the person knows that new opportunities will arise if the present ones are missed.
That isn’t a good thing for the long run, because it makes the person waste a lot of time, and in many cases, this person doesn’t manage to use all their potential fully.
Sextiles are often responsible for creating lack of ambition in people, unlike squares which promote action because the person is in constant struggle and fight to get what they desire.
Transiting planets creating Sextile aspects often introduce new opportunities in the person’s life, and they can also indicate important people entering their life, people that might transform their life in some way, or help them discover and develop their talents.
