This study group is for those with some basic Astrology knowledge or if you have taken Dorothy’s beginner class. We are learning at a beginner level right now the “Building Blocks” of Astrology.
What are the elements, modalities, the planets in signs, and houses?
We will be using our own charts in class so we will learn about ourselves along the way.
If you have questions please email Dorothy. firstname.lastname@example.org
All are welcome to join this class at any time as each session is presented as a stand-alone class. Dorothy will send out emails with the information to be covered in each class for the upcoming month lesson or focus. Be sure to register early every month to receive this information.
Please bring a notebook for class. Come on by and join the fun!
An angle of 0 to 10 degrees apart. This aspect intensifies the energy of the 2 planets involved for harmony or disharmony. POWER. When a Conjunction occurs in a chart it will always be in the same quality/modality and element.
An angle of roughly 60 degrees, orb 6 degrees. Sextiles are weaker positive aspects, similar to a trine but with less energy. OPPORTUNITY, for success when activated. When a sextile occurs in a chart, they are of different qualities and different elements. But they are both either positive or negative so here is where they work together.
OBSTACLES. An angle of roughly 90 degrees, orb 8 degrees. This is the most powerful of the difficult aspects. A square aspect forces you to face issues and in the process grow. When a square occurs in a chart, they are in the same quality but different elements, thus causing the obstacles that need work. If the square is in Cardinal signs these are faults and unlearned lessons of the previous life. They can be changed with constructive action. If handled correctly for this individual, they will not manifest into fixed squares next time.
CREATION/HARMONY. An angle of 120 degrees, orb 8 degrees. This is the most powerful positive aspect. Trines positively enhance the energies of the 2 planets involved. They are the results of constructive service, and harmonious actions in other lifetimes. Good Karma returning to us. When a Trine occurs in a chart it will always be the same element. Air, Earth, Fire, or Water.
DISCORD. (The terms are generally used interchangeably) aspect is formed between planets that are roughly 150 degrees apart, orb of 1 degree. Some keywords that describe quincunxes are: redirecting, challenging, requiring adjustments, diverting..
When it comes to the Quincunx aspect it is important to remember that we tend to rethink things. Going back and forth, finding glitches in what we want to do. It is easy to talk ourselves out of doing when we over analyze or go to a place of fear. The important thing to do with this energy is something creative and new, taking a risk (no thinking) is most important.
An angle of roughly 180 degrees, orb 8-10 degrees. Oppositions occur when the planets involved are literally opposite one another. The energies of those planets seem to pull the person in 2 different directions, thus causing some kind of, AWARENESS. In order to define yourself you have to define those around you. When an opposition occurs in a chart, they are the same quality/modality but a different element. If the opposition is in Cardinal signs these are faults and unlearned lessons of the previous life. They can be changed with constructive action. If handled correctly for this individual, they will not manifest into fixed squares next time.
