The trine aspect – when two planets are approximately 120º apart in the zodiac – expresses as luck and good-fortune. It brings the matters ruled by the planets and the houses in which they are located into harmonious cooperation. It signs for a good news story.

The square aspect – when two planets are approximately 90º apart in the zodiac – expresses as a high-discord obstacle. The matters ruled by the two planets and their house positions are blocked and frustrated as each planet acts as an obstacle that frustrates the actions of the other. And each planet responds violently.
