|Harmonious Transits||Difficult Transits|
When two aspects (familiarly known as “planets”) are conjunct, it just means that both are in the same sign. This usually signifies that they will work together for a common goal. This combination is easy flowing. For example, if the Sun is positioned in Leo and the planet Mercury is also positioned in Leo, astrologers may say “the Sun will conjunct Leo today”
|Inconjunction (sometimes called a “quincunx”) = requires us to make adjustments.
When two aspects are inconjunct, neither have anything in common. This transit is related to struggle and we must find adjustments. Energies do not flow smoothly and we may have difficulty forging connections with others.
|Sextile= an opportunity implied; reaching out is necessary
When two aspects are Sextile, it implies that openness is significant in order to usher in new opportunities and connections. It is a high energy transit and encourages an active exchange.
|Sesquiquadrate= notes subtle tension is likely
When two aspects are Sesquiquadrate, willingness and eagerness to learn is implied. We must be slow to respond and take an additional moment to react in heated situations
|Semi-sextile= denotes reciprocal action
When two aspects are semi-sextile, growth is likely. The planet’s energies attract one another and require some sort of effort to allow an inflow of information. Generally, the effects are favorable.
|Square= implies irritation and challenges ahead
When two aspects are square, internal conflict is likely. This transit can be challenging, frustrating and at times overwhelming. This also means we have to work twice as hard to be accepting to change and reformation
|Trine= easy flow; natural cooperation
When two aspects trine one another, a beneficial connection is likely. This is a harmonious aspect and we may feel lucky or hedonistic. Any obstacles we face during the time two aspects trine are met with good energy and a good attitude.
|Opposite= Extreme conflict is probable.
When two aspects oppose one another, balance will be called into action. This is the most difficult dynamic of all due to the polarized energy of the transit. Understanding and patience will be necessary until the transit has passed.
