When you think of aspects, think of angles. Some require a great deal of energy; some less. Certain aspects possess an easy flow, while others have a tension or start/stop quality.
This is easy to see when you're driving: A four-way stop intersection has two oppositions (opposing traffic), which is a 180-degree angle. But that intersection also has four 90-degree (square) angles. It takes more energy concentration (and fuel!) to stop, see what the other cars are doing, then step on the accelerator. When you merge into traffic, the differing angle allows you to keep driving and use less energy and fuel. Share a free sample 2014 Day-By-Day Forecast.

Since aspects represent dialogue, they make a birth chart come alive. Difficult conversations versus easy ones require far different levels of energy expenditure. Squares (90 degrees), oppositions (180 degrees), and quincunxes (150 degrees) require more energy, thought, and consideration. Trines (120 degrees) and sextiles (60 degrees), meanwhile, have a geometric flow or ease. Conjunctions (0 degrees) are in their own category -- it depends on the energies (planets) involved.
Think of planets in aspect as having a conversation with one another. The angle between the planets describes the type of conversation they're having. Squares, quincunxes, and oppositions are known as hard aspects -- the energy from these aspects generally represents challenges to be overcome, or perhaps a balance that needs to be found. Sextiles and trines, on the other hand, are considered soft aspects -- their energy is generally harmonious and beneficial. The energy resulting from a conjunction can be either helpful or difficult, depending on the planets involved.
Next time you're driving, look at the angles and consider how much of your attention is required. And the next time you examine your birth chart, think about it being easy or difficult to navigate. Most charts contain a combination of hard and easy aspects -- which helps make life so interesting!
