As you can tell from the title, this month’s issue is all about aspects. Aspects are perhaps the most misunderstood components of the language of astrology. In the grammar of astrology, aspects are conjunctions: they join two phrases or clauses showing some kind of relationship between them. Without a specific context, they’re meaningless. You can’t interpret Mercury opposite Jupiter without considering the specific Mercury, along with all of the houses it rules and the house it occupies, and the specific Jupiter along with the houses it rules and the house it occupies. A single aspect between two personal planets can involve more than half of the chart.
We begin at the beginning, with All About Aspects: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Interpreting Aspects in the Natal Chart. This is an excerpt from Chapter 11 of Principles of Practical Natal Astrology.
Next, we explore Synastry Aspects: Aspects in Relationship Astrology, and consider what it means when the aspect is between planets in two different charts.
Natal and synastry aspects are static. But aspects in predictive natal astrology, formed when a transit, progression, or direction triggers a natal planet, work differently. Dynamic Aspects: An Introduction to Aspects in Predictive Natal Astrology will teach you the difference between a promissor and a significator. And with some help from Bernadette Brady, you’ll learn how dynamic aspects differ from static aspects.
Finally, in No, Virginia, There Are No Aspect Patterns, we take a hard look at one of astrology’s most cherished myths. As young astrologers, we’re taught to believe in aspect patterns, much like as children, we’re taught to believe in Santa Claus. But when we grow up, we must question these beliefs. Do aspect patterns exist? And if they do, are they practical? Find out starting on page 36.
Plus, in The Real Houses of Astrology, meet The Real Seventh House, enjoy a few Ask Kevin videos, and learn about The Lure of Victim Consciousness.
You'll find all of this in the April issue of Talented Astrologer!
Until next time, thank you for being a part of The Real Astrology Academy!
