Sextiles are sexy – i secretly like them more than trines. A sextile is an aspect of 60 degrees between two planets or the Sun and Moon. eg; If you have the Moon at 16 Taurus and Mars at – say – 18 Pisces, those two are sextile. It’s an opportunity for sure but you have to make it happen.
Whereas trine aspects happen so easily, you most likely take that energy for granted and square, oppositions or conjunctions are always in your face, sextiles need to be jumped on and worked up a bit.
Sunday’s Jupiter-Uranus sextile was a zinger – whenever my horoscopes say stuff like ‘don’t be a shut-in’ or seem like they’re a massive call to action, it’s because there is a sextile in effect and you need to be in the right place to cop its awesome benefits.
And no doubt you have some sexy little sextiles operating in your chart. As an Astro D.I.Y. mission, get in there and identify your sextiles, are you making enough of them?
So there are sextiles like the Jupiter-Uranus one on the weekend – it’s happening, like the weather – and then there are sextiles you were born with, your assets if you choose to exploit them. AND there are sextiles via transit. An outer planet sextile to your Ascendent, Moon, or Sun is especially powerful. Someone embodying the qualities of that outer planet or whom evokes them in you, often enters your life at this point. New options open up real quick.
Get to know your sexy sextiles! Thoughts?
