What Makes an Aspect Minor or Major? (Astrology, Zodiac)

I do not agree with so-called “minor aspects”.  I rather call them “shadow” aspects.  And major aspects — “common or popular”.  Every degree on the wheel has something to offer us.  I’m fairly certain there are 360 aspects out there just as there are 360 Sabian symbols.

It’s all about “patterns” for me…

The clients I work with often have sesquiquadrates (traditionally considered a minor aspect).  I’m beginning to think it’s why they come to see me. They are coming to me for what is hard for them to understand and solve on their own.  They come to me for what they can’t see clearly on their own.

Since I believe people are smart, knowledgeable, and capable — they are not seeking “common or popular” knowledge, as it would be right in front of their eyes (what the problem was)  — they would have already caught on to it and wouldn’t need me much to help them get to the light.

Shadow aspects (minor)  hide in the background.  They are hard to see and hold on to but they are still extremely important in solving often long-standing and difficult problems or hard-to-reach destinies.

Astrology: How To Find Your Correct Time of Birth

Don’t know your correct time of birth, without a doubt?

In Canada, contact the hospital’s health records department where you were born.

In US, order your “record of birth” long form (not all cities have it recorded on there) from the state department of vital statistics or you may want to use VitalChek. American Astrologer, Steven Forrest has a great article on how to order this. Fees currently range from $10 – $30.

Overseas? Check with the hospital you were born at and/or the attending physician or you can try VitalChek International.

My time of birth was off a bit from the baby record my Mom filled out in a scrap book she made up for me. As an astrologer it made the world of difference to know my exact time of birth. And it will make a world of difference for you if you are deeply interested in completely fulfilling your life with clarity.

For example, meaningful fixed stars and asteroids use a much tighter orb so it’s very important to have your exact time of birth when using these.

In Toronto, it can currently cost between $30-$60 to get your time of birth from the hospital. Make sure they know you only want the time of birth or they will charge you a lot more.  If you are not sure about which hospital you were born at, order the long form birth certificate. In the province of Ontario, it can be ordered online. Your time of birth will not show on the long form birth certificate like it often does in the United States.

If you have any questions or comments about getting your time of birth, comment here.

Without an accurate time of birth time (or any time of birth), a chart can still be read — just not with complete accuracy and with much less detail.

It’s also important to know exactly where you were born, location wise.  Some cities are now amalgamated.  Some cities changed names, etc.  For example, the exact location where I was born is no longer seen on a map but it makes a difference in the chart. To be even more accurate, you’ll want to know the exact spot where you were born, if you can (latitude and longitude).

A birth chart rectification can also been done by astrologers. I’m generally within an hour of your time of birth and I do not specialize in birth chart rectification services.

Opposition: Glasses, Look Closer To the Other Side

An Opposition looks like a pair of glasses on its side!

Moral of the story? Turn sideways and take a closer look to see what’s on the other side.

Oppositions are a tug-of-war, two sides of the same coin, create a see-saw effect, back and forth…
