Astrology is a useful tool to determine someone’s character and their basic traits. It can also determine potential course of the person’s destiny and events they might experience.
Astrology does that though interpreting the planets and their relationships in the natal chart.
The relationships between planets are called aspects, and aspects are very important to figure out the main individual traits. They are formed by the planets during their movement through the Zodiac.
Also, aspects are formed between the planets in the natal chart, which represents a frozen image of the sky in the moment of the person’s birth.
Aspects can be harmonious and disharmonious. Major aspects are the Conjunction, Opposition, Square, Sextile and Trine. Minor aspects are the Semi-Sextile, Quincunx, Semi-Square, etc.
Especially aspects with exact orbs have the most important influence on the person’s life.
The Sextile is a good aspect with similar traits to the Trine. It is formed when the planets are 60° apart. This aspect is at times called “the lesser Trine”.
This aspect creates a good bond between the planets which form this aspect, and enables these planets to demonstrate their best traits.
This aspect makes a cooperative relationship between planets where one planet helps the other to show its potential, which in the end helps the person who has this aspect to get the most of both planets and experience favorable circumstances in their life.
Regularly, Sextile aspects are formed between the signs which have complementary nature and element, like fire and air or water and earth. Sextiles are creators of the person’s talents and special skills.
The skills and talents are present in the areas ruled by the house and sign where the planets forming the Sextile are placed in the natal chart.
Sextiles create opportunities for the person to develop their talents, or discover them, to begin with.
This aspect has a beneficial nature, but too much good can sometimes be harmful. In the case of Sextile, this aspect gives the person endless opportunities for progress and success, and that could make the person lazy and takes away their ambition.
They begin expecting everything to fall into their laps and missing wonderful opportunities because they know new ones will soon appear, but they are only wasting their time.
It often happens that people with predominately challenging aspects between their planets, like Squares and Oppositions, manage to become more successful than the Sextile type person, because the challenges and obstacles they encounter only make them stronger and more determined to succeed.
The Sextile person usually doesn’t encounter any obstacles and that is not a motivation to take action and go after the goal. These people often don’t use completely their natural potential.
Transiting Sextile aspects create new opportunities and often introduce people in the person’s life that could help them discover their talents or develop them.
Sometimes these transits will help them begin using their talents and making the most of them.
