Importance of astrological aspects in Horary Astrology

In astrology, an "aspect" is a geometric relationship between two planets.  Aspects are important in analyzing a horoscope because they seem to make the two connected planets function together or be linked. An aspect is an angle that the planets make to each other in the horoscope, and also to the ascendant, midheaven, descendant and nadir. The aspects are measured by the angular distance along the ecliptic in degrees and minutes of celestial longitude between two points, as viewed from the earth. They indicate focal points in the horoscope where the energies involved are given extra emphasis. The astrological aspects are said to influence affairs on people according to their placement in the birth chart. In Vedic astrology the aspect is measured between two full signs.
There are 4 important factors to consider in analyzing the astrological aspects in horary astrology namely:

1. Applying or separating aspect or “Ithasala and Easarapha”. When the faster moving planet is behind the slower moving planet then it is known as applying aspect. When the faster moving planet is ahead of / already crossed the slower moving planet then it is known as separating aspect. This is the most important factor determining whether the event will take place or not. Applying aspect between the significator planets means the event will likely take place while separating aspect means the event had already occurred, was a preceding event in the past and the event will not be likely to occur in the future

2. Positive or negative aspect. The positive aspects are trine (120 deg), sextile (60deg), conjunction (0 deg) and semi-sextile (30 deg) while the negative aspects are opposition (180 deg), square (90 deg) and quincunx (150 deg).
The conjunction of two malefic planets are nasty, between two natural benefic planets is good while between a natural benefic and natural malefic is neutral and depends on applying or separating aspect factor. The quincunx implies external assistance and quincunx between natural malefic planets implies failure while it is successful if otherwise and also depending on whether it is applying or separating aspect. Positive aspects implies ease, spontaneity, naturalness and flowing events while negative aspects implies obstacles and obstructions, stress
and tension, anxieties and worries

3. Dignity of aspecting planets – fallen (debilitated planets) or detrimental (placement of planet in opposite to its own house) planets are malefic. Malefic planets give strong negative results when exalted. Planets which are placed in own signs are beneficent and benefic. Debilitated planets imply lack of strength or will to attain objective

4. Natural benefic or malefic planets – Aspects between two natural benefic planets implies success while between two natural malefic planets implies failure while it is neutral between a natural benefic and natural malefic and depends on other factors.
