The T Square

This configuration occurs when Two planets oppose each other and both are squared by a third planet. The
T-square is a difficult combination of aspects as it indicates the need to overcome many obstacles, but at the
same time, it produces a strong driving ambition to do so. The tension and awareness created by two
planets in opposition must be resolved by the planet receiving the double square. This third planet becomes
a focal point of much importance in your chart.

If the T square is made up of planets in cardinal signs:

This configuration suggests that you tend to be critical, impersonal, and in many ways dominating. You
have a lot of energy and you are constantly looking for ways to spend it. The T-square configuration
generates a lot of impatience in your nature and you often make hasty decisions that you may regret later.

If the T square is made up of planets in fixed signs:

You seek structure in your life and it can be hard for you to deal with abstractions, values and ideals. You
may need to be more flexible in dealing with people; less determined and rigid. This aspect implies
endurance and resistance in the face of adversity, but it can produce inflexibility, which inhibits progress.

If the T square is made up of planets in Mutable signs:

You tend to get emerged in criticism, ideals, and values. You are likely to consider it important to show
your individuality and avoid merely following the leader and trend of the times. The easiest course for you
may be to try to avoid or ignore difficulties, but such action does nothing to resolve them.

In all cases:

The T-square causes a lot of difficulty in the life but they also spark action and the drive necessary to
achieve. Living with the demands of a T-square can be very challenging, but when the energy of this
configuration is well-directed by a mature individual, it often leads to significant accomplishments. The T-
square is an impetus to success that many famous people have.

The Grand Cross

The Grand Cross consists of four or more planets spread at intervals of approximately 90\u00b0. Thus, a cross or
two oppositions is formed in the chart. This configuration generally indicates a person living under
continuous stress and facing a seemingly never ending series of challenges. Likewise, the Grand Cross is
also representative of the individual is never able to rest until his purpose is actualized. This aspect places
your life in a constant state of tension and upheaval.

If the configuration is made up of planets in Mutable signs:

You tend to get emerged in criticism, ideals, and values. You should be aware of the importance for you to show your individuality and avoid merely following the leader and trend of the times. The easiest course for you may be to try to avoid or ignore difficulties, but such action does nothing to resolve them.

In all cases:

The Grand Cross is very rare. It characterizes an individual who should be concerned with people and
personal or intimate relationships, rather than criticism, ideals, and values. It is hard for you to avoid
spilling your energies in diverse and related directions. Many obstacles will interfere with the realization of
goals.

The Grand Trine

A Grand Trine occurs when three planets are placed an equal distant apart, approximately 120\u00b0 from each
other. A karmic interpretation of this configuration might be that you have earned some special advantages
to be enjoyed in this life. The trines indicate a harmonious flow of energy and potential for creative self-
expression. Sometimes, however, the Grand Trine confers too much stability and leads to inertia and a lack
of motivation to dynamic action. Frankly, many with Grand Trines do not accomplish as much as they
could and should in life, simply because the easy flow of events does not necessarily stimulate to
achievement and ambition.

The Stellium

A Stellium is a configuration that occurs when three or more planets are in the same sign or are in the same house. To be truly significant, a stellium should have four or more planets involved. This places much focus upon the affairs ruled by this house and/or the tendencies shown by the sign involved. Strong will power, self-awareness, and a direct stimulation to action will be shown in these affairs.

The Yod

A Yod occurs when two planets in sextile (60\u00b0 apart) both form an inconjunct (a 150\u00b0 angle) with a third
planet. The third planet in the inconjunct represents the action point of the Yod; the mid point between the
other two planets is the reaction point. The action point of the configuration is sometimes called the "finger
of God," and the finger formed by the two inconjuncts points to a place in your chart likely to be very
active. The Yod is believed by many astrologers to be a karmic configuration, and it suggests that there is a
compulsive "debt" repayment associated with the area of the chart pointed out.

The Conjunction.The conjunction is formed when two planets are at

approximately the same degree of the same sign. If this symbol appeared on the fourth
row of the graph under the symbol for the Sun, it would mean that the Sun and Venus
were in conjunction. If it appeared under the symbol of the Sun on the 10th row it would
mean that the Sun and Pluto (see Pluto note below) were in conjunction. In a conjunction,
the energies of the two planets are combined, and often the result is a strengthening of
both.

Note: The symbol looking like the letters P & L combined on the atlas graph, is the original symbol for
Pluto.
The Sextile. Sextiles occur when two planets are approximately 60 degrees* apart.
This is the aspect of opportunity.
The Square. Squares occur when two planets are approximately 90 degrees* apart.
Square cause the friction and the hurdles that causes us to grow and become productive.
The Trine. A trine occurs when two planets are approximately 120 degrees* apart.
Trines bring about ease and comfort.
The opposition. The opposition occurs when two planets are about 180 degrees*
apart. As the name implies, opposition are obstacles that must be resolved.
Note that Astrodienst places the number of degrees and minutes that the aspect deviates

from the precise aspect in the box under the aspect symbol. The deviation is called the
orb. It appears to me that the orb allowed by Astrodienst is too great. I usually allow an
orb of about 8 degrees on a conjunction, 5 degrees on squares, oppositions, and trines,
and slightly less on sextiles. Therefore, I would personally choose to ignore some of the
aspects shown on the grid when the orb is larger.

Transits/Transiting Planets

When astrologers talks about transits, it 's easy to get confused. First, transits refer to the movement of
planets across the sky. The ephemeris (an astrological/astronomical almanac showing orbital movement of
the Sun, Moon, and planets) tells us just where the planets are each day. Armed with this information, the
astrologer can project (or predict) when a planetary transit might impose its influence on a given individual.

The study of transits, and the effect that they tell, is fundamental in astrology. A transit
aspect occurs whenever a planet, moving in orbit, forms a sensitive angle with one of the
planets, the Sun or the Moon in your natal horoscope. The transits show the trends in
your life the ups and the downs brought about by circumstances that you face. In an
earlier time, astrological predictions generally forecast events. Most current day
astrologers now see the effects of the transits in more psychological and subtle terms,
suggesting opportunities or roadblocks.
The reading are often not very specific, but nonetheless, if you follow them, you will see
that they do foretell the essence of events and changes. Transit aspects often signal
opportunities or warnings relative to certain activities and actions. Being aware of
pending transit aspects may alert you to the time when you should move ahead, and they
may also send a clear message that the moment is not the time to stick your neck out. In
either case, astrology is not a science upon which you or anyone should base their life.
Transit aspects should not be used as an exclusive tool to make up your mind about
important issues, but instead, it's a tool to help make a balanced decision. It may also be a
tool to help you understand whatever problem or situation that is occurring in your life at
a particular time. If your situation seems to be difficult now, the transit aspects in play
may explain why this is so, and when positive changes may be coming about. The good
times and the hard times are all part of the human experience.
