Beginner Astrologers: The variables of Aspects

First let me begin with: Astrology is a science of probabilities. Any aspect, position, or configuration may represent any one of a number of possibilities, and the only way to get a reasonable line on which one of these will develop is first to ascertain the key to the chart as a whole. 

 For instance, if a person has the 12th house occupied by two or three of the strong planets, we know that they are going to take on some spiritual or mystical qualities.

 If they are spiritual or mystically inclined, and if the rest of the planets are in the 8th house, which rules legacies and occult ability and regeneration, we judge that the native will be interested in these two areas primarily. 

It is very 'important' to keep in mind, that when reading about aspects,  that they are general assuming no other aspects are being made to the particular planet.  Also, unless stated, no consideration is given to the sign on the cusp of the house, which also makes a difference in it' s interpretation.

Those of you that are familiar with Astrology understand that all of the aspects can be enhanced or debilitated, by other aspects. 

This is why writing about the aspects can be misleading and in some cases misinformative.

 For an example; If a person has their Moon in your 5th house, interpretations would say, the house person contributes to the playfulness of the Moon. 

The Moon person is exposed to a person that encourages self-expression, love, and romance. This is usually very good for a romantic placement.

 However, if the Moon person has any of their personal planets in difficult aspect to either Saturn or Pluto then the Moon person may not enjoy or feel comfortable with this light and fun house and prefer more depth or intensity, or in the case with Saturn, more seriousness. 

So, what would normally be considered a fun, loving and easy going placement can be blocked by the Moon person's inability to let go and have fun. 

So instead, the house person can feel the Moon person is raining on their parade and a romance may never take off. 
Or one or both of them are not happy over the long run. 

Unless the house person has Saturn or Pluto in the 5th or aspecting their personal planets, as such with the Moon, then the placement would be a match based on other factors. So there are a lot of formulations and probabilities, and they all need to be considered to make an accurate prediction on how the aspect will play out.

So the battle begins, as the house person just by being themselves, exposes this not so flexible or playful moon to an environment in which over time can actually open them up more, or on the negative the Moon brings their seriousness of Saturn, or intensity of Pluto to the house person either bringing out intense emotions (Pluto) or Suppressing them ( Saturn) in turn affecting the house person, both side have their effect and why I choice the word battle.

The Astrological aspects made in a natal chart affect the way they will play out in the synastry chart. So, ideally the natal chart of both people need to be analyzed first, before the synastry chart, in order to properly assess the relationship potential.

Aspects or placements in themselves, are only accurate if the energy was pure and simple (unafflicted) or having no other aspects made to them, which is very rarely the case and why the accuracy of energy of the relationship based on these are accurate for some but not others.
