Illustrates how aspects can offer a profound depiction of an individual and his or her destiny. • Contains comprehensive sections full of interpretations for every planetary combination. • Concepts are explained through the use of actual birth charts and diagrams. • A core textbook at the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London. Aspects are an essential piece of the astrological puzzle when it comes to interpreting and using the information that astrology can give us. It is not enough to know the placement of the planets on the horoscope. It is the relationships between the stars and planets that let us grasp the destiny of the individual. Aspects describe the drama of our lives--the complex configurations that influence what will happen to us over time. Sue Tompkins, a fellow of the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London, shows how to interpret aspects when doing daily astrological readings. She uses the lives of real people to plot the aspects and offers examples of every possible planetary combination. Detailing the influence of oppositions, trines and elemental trines, and cardinal, mutable, and fixed crosses, Tompkins shows how aspects provide the energy in the chart that transforms the horoscope into something symbolizing an alive and vital human being. With Aspects in Astrology, Tompkins provides both the novice and the experienced astrologer the evidence and concrete methods needed to grasp the vast knowledge offered to us by our horoscope.

In Vedic Astrology harmonious and inharmonious aspects among the planets depend upon their natural significations and their basic characters. Planets of contrary characteristics usually display inharmony when in aspect. However the lordships of planets have a great say in moulding the planets considerably, when in aspect. This change in nature and characteristics is particularly noticeable during their Dasas and Bhuktis. Thus we see that in Vedic Astrology the results of aspects of planets depend upon their natural characteristics and lordships. In Western Astrology, it is'the angle between the planets that decides harmonious or inharmonious aspects. The planets at 90 or 120° apart are supposed to be in harmony or create a harmonious aspect, tend to enhance each other's good significations, modify and retard the bad significations. If the angle is 90° or 180° or placed in 6th/ 8th to each other, then they are said to be in inharmonious aspects. They tend to irritate and block each other's significations. They give bad results for the houses they are posited in and for the houses ruled by them. We propose to discuss here the harmonious and inharmonious aspects between the sets of two planets in a general sense. These aspects are pliable for various horoscopes according to lordships and natural characteristics of planets involved and other aspects to these planets.
Aspects are the mathematical relationships between planets in an individual's astrological chart. They are key factors in the study of astrology, for it is the interpretation of the relationship of one planet to another that explains human behavior. If we think of each planet as representing a quality of energy or a voice within, then two planets relating to each other would describe a conversation; all ten considered together could be likened to a committee meeting. The relationships of all those planets to each other characterizes the effectiveness of that group meeting or the quality of dialogue going on within us. Some people have simple and harmonious inner dialogues, while other people have a riot going on inside. Astrological Aspects allows readers to make sense of the riot, and through examples of aspects in the charts of well-known people, shows us how different individuals manage, or mismanage, both conflicting and complementary energies-and by extension, how we can do the same.
