Sextile

Definition of Sextile

Sextile is an astrological aspect. It refers to two planets in transit that are 60 degrees apart. It can signify effective communication and harmony between the two planets involved. 

This is very similar to a trine, when 3 planets form a triangle, but trines generally have much smaller angular degrees. How sextiles manifest in our lives is that the two planets in sextile point to talents and skills. These are aspects considered relationship friendly.

When you see a sextile in your chart or daily forecast, you are being pointed towards talents you can harness that day, or in your natal chart. These are things you don’t even know about yourself yet, and this is why discovering where the sextiles are in our chart can be so exciting.
