Aspects and Their Significance

 Analyzing a horoscope

certain essential elements must be considered and combined with valid judgment. Once the fundamentals, namely, the characteristics of the planets, the nature of the twelve zodiacal signs, the matters governed by the different House (bhavas), the quality of the aspects, etc., have been well understood, then the proper analysis of the horoscope will happen.The aspecting planet often indicates the changes/modification in the results; and the cause for such a change and the source which brings about such a change.An aspect is an angle formed on the Earth by the beams of planets. The term is employed, in astrology, to refer to an angular distance measured in degrees and minutes of celestial longitude between a planet and a point in the zodiac. According to western astrologers, aspects are formed between two planets or between a planets and a point in the horoscope, for instance, the cusp of a house (bhava), say Ascendant M.C., etc.

 The exact beginning of a house

(which is also the end of the previous house) reckoned in degrees and minutes of celestial longitude. It is beyond any doubt that some angular distances do produce varied results which are significant in the lives of natives as well as nations.A planet is in aspect with another planet or a sensitive point by a specific longitudinal distance.Planets are ever moving in their known orbits in the zodiac, and so aspects may be formed between the two planets and the difference in their longitudes will from a particular aspect. That is, at any given time, in some part of the Zodiac, two planets may be transiting at a specific distance from each other, and certain angles are formed upon the earth by such relationship. It has been found that these angles exert a significant impact on those natives, animators or vibrations because, at their birth, a cosmic vibration of similar nature was in existence.  slots   According to the ancient Hindu sages and seers, the aspects (Drishities) should be counted from sign to sign, irrespective of the position of the planet in the sign and the relative distance between two planets. Further, the aspects themselves are neither decided as favorable nor unfavorable considering the longitudinal distance between them. They depend mainly upon the natural relationship between the planets, and the aspected planet is said to be inauspicious, and the aspect of a benefic planet is invariable good and stimulating.
