Over the next four Astrology posts, we will take a look at the minor aspects and their meanings or energies. The first of these is the Semi-Sextile which is a 30 degree aspect with no more than a 2 degree orb of influence.
This aspect is said to be of lessor importance unless it is part of a bigger configuration and the planets involved are inter-configured with other planets and angles in the horoscope. The Semi-Sextile often reinforces other elements within the birth chart that are of similar meaning. Trines or conjunctions to the planets involved would be assisted from the Semi-Sextile and reinforced or would have further support to what is already there.
Putting the relative insignificance of this aspect aside, it still does work as a supporting factor and often facilitates opportunities as does the Sextile. It is often active in times when we seem to find ourselves in the right place at the right time. Sometimes things just seem to fall into our laps when this configuration is activated through progression and transit. Other times, we have to work towards a positive outcome but the opportunities are still present.
Semi-Sextiles seem to imply gentle assistance and are often in play when things just seem to work out well. If this aspect is standing alone, it might not be overly noticeable but if it has other assisting corroborations within the chart such as Jupiter and Venus linked in some fashion, it might be highlighted and fortunate, especially if in trine or conjunction
If Mercury is involved in the equation the Semi-Sextile provides building opportunities to enhance the thought process and an ability to function mentally on a higher level of awareness. It would help to transcend any learning difficulties although if there are many other factors in the chart suggesting otherwise it would not be of much assistance.
In progression, it might assist in making arrangements for learning potential, higher education on some level and even clearer insight. Once again this is subject to other circumstances within the framework of the chart. When signing documents or agreements if other chart indicators are functioning in an agreeable manner, the Semi-Sextile might provide the incentive for you to sign that agreement and be in the right place at the right time for things to work out in a very positive manner.
When conjoined with the Saturn (the teacher), the normal energies Saturn is associated with such as delays, obstacles and frustration may be harnessed and used to your advantage. You will still be careful when applying Saturn’s energy to the affairs linked to this time and space but may feel comfortable enough to move forward with some activity that works with you rather than holding you back.
Semi-Sextiles are little helpers and offer their assistance in minor ways but can be of general good when other aspects correspond to their energies. A tightly angled Semi-Sextile will hold greater significance than a distant trine or sextile configuration.
