We’ve done a good bit of research on Skywriter, including our project on the so-called minor aspects last summer. One of my students expressed curiosity about unaspected planets, and there hasn’t been much done on that. So I thought I’d ask you readers for information.
First of all, it would be rare to have a completely unaspected planet. That would depend on so many factors:
- What kind of orbs do you use?
- Look for aspects to the Ascendant or Midheaven.
- Don’t neglect the “minor” aspects. (See the series starting here: Understanding Septiles–Your Input Needed.)
- Are there important placements in the sign that planet rules? For example, if Venus has few aspects, do you have Libra placements to compensate?
- Do you have a couple of planets in the house associated with that planet–like the 3rd house for Mercury?
However, many of us have a planet that has only one aspect, and I’d like to hear how you experience it. Consider these questions:
- Is that planet a “dumb note” that you find it hard to express or integrate into your life?
- Or, conversely, do you make it work overtime to compensate, in the same way we often do with a missing element?
- What happens with the house it’s in and the areas of life it represents?
Tell us about your least aspected planet in the comment section.
