Frequently asked questions

Charts > A legend

  1. Aspect tables for charts:

    a applying (two planets are moving towards and exact angle)
    s separating (two planets are moving away from an exact angle)
    + positive value: the aspect is larger than it would be, were it exact
    - negative value: the aspect is smaller than it would be, were it exact
    sd planet / node is stationary before going direct again
    sr planet / node is stationary before going retrograde
    Q Quintile aspect (angle of 72°)
    bQ bi-Quintile aspect (angle of 144°)

  2. Charts:

    Part of Fortune

  3. Synastry / Solar Return charts - aspect tables:

    ' The apostrophe shown with some aspects of the additional tables marks those aspects which have a large orb (above 50% of maximum orb), and which should probably be ignored. By doubling the number of planets, the probability of an aspect is increased, and orbs should be reduced accordingly. This is true for any chart which is the result of a combination of two different charts.


  4. Natal, Progressed and Solar Arc Chart, combined:

    AC sol Ascendant of the previous Solar Return Chart, erected for the birth place
    MC sol Midheaven of the previous Solar Return Chart, erected for the birth place

    This is a method used by the late Bernd A. Mertz

  5. Printable Ephemeris:

    R planet changing from direct to retrograde motion
    D planet changing from retrograde to direct motion

  6. Where can I find out what the symbols (squares, triangles, etc.) in the table that goes with the chart mean?

    These symbols show the aspects of the planets. You can find more information on aspects and their meanings in the "Aspects" section of our "Introduction to Astrology".
