Fortuna ~ the Moon of a sibling or relative might mean that we find that we can count on this person as being a positive factor for us emotionally, due to all the support we get from him or her. That would surely be a sign of very good fortune for us in our family life.

Since ~s join signs that are in different elements, just as oppositions do but much less energetically, I think that a smaller orb -- say half that of an opposition -- is appropriate for the ~ aspect.

The Moon applies to ~ Saturn. Mars, your significator, separates from a square of Venus, significator of potential relationships and applies to an opposition of Jupiter. Venus applies to a conjunction of Saturn and squares the Ascendant, your house.
Analysis: ...

To Pallas is an exact semi~, to Jupiter and Vesta is a ~, to Mercury is a quincunx / inconjunct, and to Mars is a trine. Between them there is much opportunity for harmonious, supportive growth.

But one "leg" of the Mars to Pluto aspect ~s the other point. So, we have on our list: Mars sq. Pluto, Mars ~ Pluto. This is interesting.

The major Ptolemaic aspects, the trine, ~, square and opposition have traditionally been divided into two general categories. Trines and ~s are typically considered favorable, desirable, harmonious, easy, creative, and soft.

The Moon becomes Void Of Course (VOC) after making the last major ptolemic aspect (conjunction, ~, square, trine, opposition) to a planet and until entering the next sign.** Traditional astrology will tell you not to sign on the dotted line or make major decisions when the Moon is VOC.

When the Moon makes a semi-~, or quincunx, the influences are much more subtle. Gregg said that himself. They are harder to see, more difficult to put your finger on, and as such are not clear definers of that lunar cycle.

The last of the aspects that we have space to address here is the ~, which is formed by dividing the wheel by 6, giving us an aspect of 60. The ~ aspect links signs of complementary element, i.e., Earth and water and fire and air.

For example, should the Moon aspect Venus by conjunction and later ~ Jupiter, the now enclitic Moon will act as if it were Venus-oriented when it aspects Jupiter.

Indeed, strategic planning (SATURN), investment of time, energy, and preparation for interviews enables you to transform your vision about your new career (MERCURY-NEPTUNE ~) into reality (SATURN).

My synastry chart shows a North Node, Trines, and South Node, ~s. The Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn that is her chart. My North Node, ~s, and South Node, Trines against Mars. I understand why these angles inverse for North and South Node, but I have three questions.

For example, both of the luminaries are configured to Venus by ~, and thus the ~ is associated with the nature of Venus. Similarly, both luminaries are configured to Mars by square, so the nature of the square is seen as being similar to Mars. And so on.
