The placement of planets on the great wheel is just one property of astrological influence. As the planets make their way around the great wheel, their cosmic dance through the signs intertwines and interweaves the subtle energies that influence our lives. No planet exists in isolation, nor is its influence made independently. The interplay of their energies comes to life as they connect with each other at specific angles, known as aspects.
Sometimes those aspects are challenging and provide us with lessons to accomplish. Other aspects come easily, like a long lost talent suddenly returning. To better understand these subtle influences, Robert Phoenix explains the five major aspects, or angles, that reveal the interplay of planetary energies guiding and inspiring our lives.
