Square

Definition of Square

A square is a challenging astrological aspect, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing. A square is formed when one planet makes a 90 degree angle to another. This can happen between two planets in transit, or between two planets in your natal chart, or when one transiting planet makes an aspect to a natal planet. A square is more influential when a transiting outer planet makes the aspect to a natal inner planet.

This aspect is another one that is easier to understand than we think. When you “square off” with someone in life, chances are, the conversation or experience didn’t go very well. This is the same thing when two planets are square to each other.

A square in your chart or forecast is an illustration of a point of contention or tension. We all need some tension in our life as these experiences are the tests we must undergo in order to fulfill our higher purpose, but going through these tests isn’t any fun. However, if we can have a look ahead of time at our daily forecast, or our birth chart, to see where these squares are going to appear in our life, it can make preparing for them a little bit easier.

Gibbous

When someone says the moon is gibbous, it means that more than 50% of the moon is illuminated in the sky. This happens when the moon is moving towards a full moon and after the full moon when we are approaching a new moon.
