Planets - The Actors in Your Cosmic Drama

Planets are the actors in the drama of our lives. The arrangement of these actors and how they interrelate forms the bedrock of the chart.

Aspects - The Conversations in Your Chart

Aspects are the longitudinal relationships among the planets and sensitive points in the chart. Declinations are latitudinal connections and they are equally important.  Learn to hear the conversations going on in your chart!
