Aspects are an integral part of astrology and chart interpretation.  At this meeting, you will learn new techniques to assist you in analyzing aspects, where their power comes from, and how to assess them.  What about applying and separating, double-applying and double-separating aspects, and how to distinguish between them Jim will talk about the speed of the planets, and retrograde planets.  We will look at how the planet's movement affects the aspect. 

The Sun and Moon may always be direct, but does that mean that all transiting Moon aspects carry the same energy?  Jim will look at the difference between a slow-Moon applying aspect, a fast-Moon applying aspect, and separating Moon aspects.  What about aspects that don’t materialize?  Jim will show you how to spot these differences and how to evaluate planetary movements as well as the science behind them.

While emphasis will be on transiting aspects to a chart, the techniques can also be applied to the aspects in any chart.   There will be time to look at the charts of anyone in attendance who is interested to see how to apply these techniques to their chart.
