Aspectorial Significance & Meanings

In longitude and declination, there is a total of 17 aspects combined that show up during secondary progressions of significant events. Those aspects include 00°, 180°, 120°, 90°, 72°, 60°, 45°, 30°, 15°, 75°, 105°, 135°, 150°, 165°, parallel north, parallel south, and contraparallel (n/s). Astrological aspects indicate the implications of events while the planets and Major Angles indicate the nature/activities of an event.

The aspects are divided into three groups:

Astronomical Spheres of Influence

Every planet gives rise to a state of consciousness accompanied by propensities to which actions are undertaken by an individual. Each is distinctive in its influence, implications, and correspondence to specific colors (or wavelengths), metals, endocrine glands, organs of the body, musical notes, activities, manifestation of events, and zodiacal signs which it rules. Each also has its positive and negative traits, based on how a person exercises free will in response to urges.

The Sun and Moon, which really are not planets, have special significance beyond just “inclinational” influences. Known as the luminaries or “lights”, they signify the most fundamental aspects of a person’s being without which life would not be possible.

Intercepted Houses & Career Potentials

There is a misconception that I've observed among a number of astrologers (and astrological literature) when it comes to the meaning of intercepted houses. It is often stated that intercepted house pairs and signs represent a suppression of energies, qualities and abilities...or difficulty expressing oneself in such areas...or indicative of problems early in life that cause blockages pertinent to the intercepted house pair.

But, that simply is not the case. Intercepted house pairs are a strong indicator of one's life calling. They show the vocations (or avocations) to which an individual gravitates and is most suited. A person's participation in activities related to the intercepted houses increase or is greater than average.

The Fundamental Meanings and Functions of the Houses

Now that we have illustrated and explained the basis of how house cusps are formed—and their relation to time, location, and space—we will now explain their all-inclusive meanings that encompass every aspect of life.

What we provide here are in-depth, precisely-defined meanings of the 12 houses that go beyond mere “key words” that too often are superficially associated with certain houses (and sometimes those associations are not even correct!).  Having an overall understanding of the houses, both within their specific context and together as a whole, will enable you to see the intelligent manner in which all areas of life can be attributed within a horoscope.  This includes the present, future, and past-tense orientations of houses as well as those that constitute existences versus those that constitute effects (or consequences).
