“Planets in Aspect” is a book written by astrologer Robert Pelletier that explores the concept of aspects in astrology. Aspects refer to the geometric relationships between the planets in the sky, and they can have a significant impact on the energies and themes present in a person’s chart. In this book, Pelletier offers a comprehensive guide to understanding and interpreting aspects of astrology.
Overview of the Book
“Planets in Aspect” is organized into four main sections: an introduction to aspects, a discussion of the major aspects (those formed by the conjunction, opposition, square, trine, and sextile), an exploration of the less frequently occurring aspects, and a discussion of the role of aspects in chart interpretation.
In the introduction, Pelletier provides a foundational understanding of aspects and their role in astrology. He discusses the various ways that aspects can be interpreted and the different factors that can influence their impact on a person’s chart.
The second section of the book is devoted to a detailed exploration of the major aspects. Pelletier discusses the meanings and potential effects of each aspect, as well as how to interpret the aspect in relation to the individual’s birth chart.
In the third section, Pelletier delves into the less frequently occurring aspects, such as the quincunx and the semi-sextile. He also discusses how to interpret aspects involving the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) and how to work with the role of aspects in chart interpretation.
The final section of the book explores the role of aspects in chart interpretations and how to work with them in the context of the individual’s life. Pelletier discusses how to take into account the overall patterns and themes of aspects in order to gain a deeper understanding of a person’s chart and the challenges and opportunities.
