Most of what I am explaining today will make more sense to you if you have had a chart read or are planning to do so.
In astrology there are no absolutes or true predictions. Trends are apparent and with relationships In life you have free will to make changes and follow your heart in any direction.
Major Planetary Aspects
One of the most fascinating parts of astrology are planetary aspects. The planets in the different signs reside in one of the 12 different houses and have a relationship with each other. Planets can be next to each other or form a variety of different angles. Each angle has special meaning for personality, relationships and future trends.
For example: Mercury is 10 degrees in Libra and Saturn is in Aries (which is directly opposite Libra. Saturn is in Aries at exactly 10 degrees and this forms an exact opposition. This creates a perfect opposition. There can be a difference of 10 degrees in the signs to create the opposition.
A note here: Each planet is in a sign as your sun sign is. You know your sun sign is in one of the 12 signs of the zodiac...Your moon sign is in one of the 12 signs of the zodiac and so on. They are a specific amount of degrees in each sign..up to 30 degrees.
An astrologer checks out all aspects, of the planets in signs including what houses.
There are minor aspects that the planets have with each other, but here are the major ones.
Conjunct Planets----next to each other in the same sign 10 degrees or less.
Sextile Planets---60 degrees from each other
Square Planets----90 degrees from each other
Trine: Planets----120 degrees from each other
Opposing Planets------ 180 degrees from each other
The Basics: There are 12 signs on the zodiac along with 12 houses and they are 30 degrees apart: Each house contains 30 degrees. Each house is ruled by a sign depending on your particular chart. The natural place for the first house is ARIES as it is the first sign of the zodiac.
Aries is 30 degrees from Taurus and so on throughout the zodiac
So if you have an aspect of Mercury in Aries and Jupiter in Libra they are 180 degrees apart forming an oppositiion.
Aspects are an important part of doing a complete reading.
This is when two planets are next to each other.This simply means the planets are both in the same signs.
Sun in Aries and Moon in Aries...but Lets say the Sun is 5 degrees in Aries and the moon is 30 degrees in Aries This does not work to form a conjunct aspect as it is more than 10 degrees.
When planets are conjunct this is mostly a positive aspect. And depending on what the planets and houses those are the areas that will be favorable in your chart.
Here is an example: Mercury in Libra at 10 degrees and the Sun is in libra at 5 degrees in your 4th house which is your home life and childhood. This may indicate you had a good childhood and have fond memories of your youth and also a good father figure.
Sextile Aspect of Planets
This aspect occurs when the signs are 60 degrees apart. An example would be Libra and Sagittarius. They are 60 degrees apart on the astrology wheel. The orb is generally less than ten degrees in all cases.
An example would be Mercury is in Libra and Venus is in Sagittarius..with an orb of 10 degrees. This is a favorable aspect meaning good luck, good relationships and favorable outcomes in the house where they reside.
Square Aspect of the Planets
The square aspect is when two planets are at a 90 degree angle--the square. It can show stress, and conflict depending on the particular planets and which houses they fall into. It surprisingly can turn the tide of fortune or create a deterrent to reach a specific goal.
For example lets say: Saturn is in Scorpio on the natal chart in the first house of the wheel.
Mercury is in Aquarius in the 4th house creating a 90 degree angle to Saturn.
The first house is yourself, your goals and who you are.
The fourth house is early home life and the father.
This could mean there were problems growing up in the home with the father.
When I say "could be" there are many other factors to consider before making this statement.
Trine Aspect of the Planets
This is the most favorable aspect of all. It is two planets in signs 120 degrees apart. This is a comfortable place for planets to be in relationship to each other...often representing good fortune, luck and happiness.
For example: Your moon sign of Virgo is in your second house and Mars is in Capricorn in your 5th house. You have your moon sign in the second house which represents money in your life, and and you have Mars in Capricorn house of social life and friendships. You will be blessed with many friends who share your energies and have fun spending money...That is just one small aspect.

This is a difficult part of astrology to explain. However to me it is one of the most important methods of revealing personalities and relationships.
I am sure that many comments will be coming in that I have been totally confusing. From now on I am going to keep it simple to understand.
