Aspects: Sesquiquadrate featured w/ Square and Semi-Square – Part One

Sesquiquadrate? How the heck do you pronounce Sesquiquadrate anyway? It’s a mouthful! And, to me, that translates to complex and hard to understand and that might be part of the problem. Is it even worth delineating? To me, fortunately or not, it is!

Other than reading that the Sesquiquadrate (inversion of a Semi-square) is less evil, I haven’t read much about it that differs it from a Square or Semi-Square. (Thank you Jan Bird for posting some links in the comments section!! I welcome more links as well)

Many astrologers (to my knowledge) do not speak about it in regards to how it affects a chart or transit. Is that because it’s known as a “minor aspect”?

The Alchemy of Turning a Square Into Trines (Jupiterville)!

A Square turned on its side makes a DIAMOND!  The moral of the picture is to look at things differently. I have a belief that no such thing as good or bad exists, only difference. What’s in a square? That which we call a trine. By any other square would smell as sweet. Oh, I…

The Gray Areas: Cusps in Astrology

What makes a cusp? A cusp is on the edge. “Mathematics A point at which a curve crosses itself and at which the two tangents to the curve coincide.”¹ “A transitional point or time, as between two astrological signs [or houses as in a house cusp].”¹ A cusp is the overlapping area between one zodiac…

Synastry: Handling Venus Square Neptune (The Fantasy Romance)

Do you have the Perfect Personality?! :)

What attributes make up the perfect personality? In astrology it may have to do with having the home and perhaps exalted sign ruled by the corresponding luminary or planet for EVERY placement in your natal chart. So say you have a Leo Sun, that would mean your personality of being confident and creative is a…

Astrological Contact Types in Planetary Aspect (now including Sesquiquadrate)

In astrology there’s a contact type or energy that form between planets / luminaries (Sun, Moon) and all together this creates what is called an aspect. When we first meet someone, an immediate first impression forms based on a gut reaction.  We notice something similar or different about them and we instantaneously decide if we like…

Best Friendships, 7th House Beginnings…

Healthy Friends

I’m not the type to have many mutually Libran 7th house “committed” & Scorpio 8th house “deep” friendships but that’s generally what I desire.

In fact, most of my friendships are the Aquarian “superficial”, “aquantaince”, “groups & networks” 11th house type that generally skim the surface and keep things light, distant, and impersonal yet topics of discussion are deep, optimistic, warm, and spiritual.

There’s nothing wrong with 11th house relationships and in fact, they are low maintanance, committment free, easy-on-the-mind, and full of learning opportunities; however, every once in awhile I yearn for something more.

The Busines of Competition. Is it All About You, Me, or We?

I’m VERY competitive. I’m very competitive with MYSELF. I want to be faster, stronger, better. Not faster, stronger, better than anyone else.

I’m Leo Sun Conjunct Leo Mars with these two planets operating as one. I’m not stuck on what I have already accomplished.

Astrological Signs & Colour: What’s Your Color?

ZODIAC SIGNS, ELEMENTS, AND COLOUR — The following connects your zodiac sign and element with its natural colour. The best balancing or alternate colour or colours can be worn when you are finding the energy of your zodiac sign is too overpowering or underwhelming.

So say you’re a Pisces (water element) and you’re on the shy side – wearing orange can attract people to you and open your energy up. Likewise, if you’re a Leo (fire element) and your energy is too aggressive, wearing pink will encourage people to accept, understand, and welcome you. The flipside is true that when you wear a colour that balances out your energy, you will be mindful to embody more of that colour in your actions and behaviour. So the result is that you have both yourself and others working to balance you to a nice place of well-being and success.

When Opposites Attract… Fireworks Happen!


We have heard the phrase: Opposites attract; however, what exactly does that mean? Well, it can mean that the behaviour and attitude differences in others compels you to get closer to that which is foreign to you. It can also mean balancing an extreme trait or action such as having an introspective and quiet disposition…

8th House Virgo Stellium, 12th House Survivors: Helping Those Who HIDE From Themselves

Psychosis and Losing One’s Mind: Where, when, how, why does it begin?

Why clumsiness / accidents occurs: A Psychic perspective

I was asked why clumsiness occurs. My response to that is clumsiness, from a psychic perspective, is a result of negative thoughts. These negative thoughts usually are about other people or situations that one *feels* should have been — could have been — avoided. Also, it’s likely to be about not taking responsibility for one’s…

The significance of 10/10/10 and getting married on that day

As a Numerologist, quoted as Abella Arthur, I was interviewed by the Canadian Press to comment on October 10th, 2010 due to the triple sequence of 10-10-10 that the date creates.

That interview snowballed into a handful of radio and TV spots.

Roots: Learning astrology & just plain learning — a dedication and an invitation

With Jupiter in Libra, 9th house, I only started serious astrological studies (May / June 2010) when I was serendipitously introduced to a friend in the UK (Sun Libra 3rd house, His Sun Conjunct My Jupiter 3rd & 9th house total merge) who was just as enamoured with learning, communicating, and delving deeply into the unknown as I was.

Saturn’s Test: Astrological squares in aspect — How to overcome them and get on with it.

Laugh in the face of squares or the squares’ boss will laugh at you. In astrology there are various energies (aspects) that occur when planets and points connect (at particular degrees, angles). It’s the “Hey, I see you and I’m now deciding on what I’m going to do with you”.  One of these aspects is…

Astrology Language: Aspect Delineation, Reading Aspects

Delineation of planets aspecting each other is like creating a real-life story or message from an astrological term such as Venus Square Neptune.

It can be as simple as starting with the planet furthest away (Neptune); then moving to the connection / aspect (square), followed by the activated planet (Venus).

Synastry: The Fairytale Aspect – Venus Square Neptune

Astrologers around the world often say that one of the worst “red flag” aspects two people can have in a romantic synastry comparison is Venus Square Neptune.

Jasper (my husband) answered a Yahoo Question… Q: Can pisces go for rather long periods of time without seeing/talking to the person they REALLY like? A: Pisces, in particular, can.
