All of the Planets are always in relationship to one another. In Astrology we call these “Aspects.” These dynamic planetary relationships create the complexity within each and every life form on planet earth.
There are many different aspects in Astrology and I will only focus on the “main” ones here:
The conjunction: 0 degrees
The sextile: 60 degrees
The square: 90 degrees
The trine: 120 degrees
The quincunx: 150 degrees
The opposition: 180 degrees
…I use varying orbs for each of these Aspects. For the conjunction, square, and oppositions I use 10 degrees on either side; for the sextile, quincunx, and trine I use 5 degrees on either side.
