Unaspected Planets in Your Birth Chart: Gifts and Challenges

unaspected planets astrology

Unaspected planets in your birth chart are like wild, untamed animals within your psyche. They can “run away with your horoscope,” becoming a defining trait within your personality whether you approve or not.

Unaspected Planets: Definition

Unaspected planets, referred to as peregrine planets by Noel Tyl, are those planets in your natal chart that lack any Ptolemaic aspect (i.e. conjunction, sextile, square, trine or opposition) with any other planet.

Guidelines for Interpreting Unaspected Planets

  1. Unaspected planets do not connect with the rest of the psyche – much like someone in a foreign land, it is disconnected from the surroundings, and integration becomes challenging.
  2. This can be mirrored as a feeling of disconnection in outer relationships, especially if a key body such as Sun or Moon is unaspected. With unaspected Sun or Moon, there may be a feeling that the world doesn’t quite understand you.  You may “march to a different drummer.”
  3. Unaspected planets can function either as strong talents or excessive, overcompensatory habits: For example unaspected Mercury could suggest someone whose emphasis on thoughts or speech is pronounced, like the writer Norman Vincent Peale, who wrote “The Power of Positive Thinking.”  However, it could also suggest someone that talks incessantly out of nervous habit.
  4. Unaspected planets may be interpreted as strong and dominant, or excessive and vulnerable to isolation.  Consider these multiple potentials when you interpret the unaspected planets within your own birthchart.

Unaspected Planets: Possible Meanings and Keywords

Here are some keywords you may want to consider when exploring the interpretation of unaspected planets in a horoscope.

Unaspected Sun: Intensified Ego Drive

A person with unaspected Sun tends to march to a different drumbeat.  There can be strong emphasis on self expression and leadership, as well as a strong need for ego recognition.

Unaspected Moon: Possible Emotional Disconnection

Natal Moon with no major aspects tends to magnify the needs represented by Moon’s sign.  A good example is Steve Jobs, who had unaspected Moon in Aries (“the need to be Number One”).  Unaspected Moon possibly suggests emotional disconnection from the parents, and later from other people.  There may also be a need to express a caring, nurturing or educational behavior in order to connect with the world.

Unaspected Mercury: Hyperactive Mind

Unaspected Mercury tends to emphasize an overactive mind, which could result in nonstop talking, thinking, or worrying.  If the wild mental energy can be harnessed toward a productive direction, unaspected Mercury can become a strong asset providing you with impressive mental faculty and communication skills.

Unaspected Venus: Intensified Emotions and Social Needs

Unaspected Venus magnifies the emotional and social needs represented by your Venus’ sign.

For example, unaspected Venus in water signs (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) emphasizes emotional expression in relationships – either as emotional drama, or an ability to care deeply for others.

In contrast, unaspected Venus in earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus or Virgo) may emphasize the material aspect of Venus, perhaps generating more interest in becoming financially successful or secure.

In general there may be an emphasis on being attractive, flirtatious, charming or understanding in order to be liked and appreciated (the archetypal expressions of Venus).

Unaspected Mars: Untamed Energy

Unaspected Mars is like a wild horse – powerful and potentially dangerous. You may need a special focus for directing your energy, especially your anger.  With the right outlet for your energy, the fire of motivation will keep you going for a long time.

Unaspected Jupiter: Dominant Higher Mind

Unaspected Jupiter suggests emphasis on philosophy, education and international or spiritual dimension.  This tends to suggest a mind hungry for higher learning.

Unaspected Saturn: Disconnected Father, Intensified Ambition

Unaspected Saturn possibly suggests a lack of support from the father figure.  Emphasis on work accomplishment or self-discipline may compensate for initial insecurity.  Unaspected Saturn can also suggest intensified ambition, especially in terms of Saturn’s sign and house placement.

Unaspected Uranus: Heightened Individuality and Progress

Unaspected Uranus suggests intensified individuality, an eye for progress, and the need for achieving social significance.  Inventor Thomas Edison’s horoscope has unaspected Uranus (using a tighter, 4 degree orb for sextile), Uranus being the planet of invention and scientific progress.

Unaspected Neptune: Vision and Ideals

Though somewhat rare, unaspected Neptune may manifest as heightened aesthetic sensitivity and strong ideals.

Unaspected Pluto: Power and Influence

Unaspected Pluto can suggest prominence, power and influence.  John F. Kennedy’s horoscope has unaspected Pluto.

Summary: Integrating Unaspected Planets

Unaspected planets can be hard to tame.  Integrating the unaspected planet into our psyche may feel like trying to have a tall Westerner blend in with a crowd of Japanese people – it can’t help but stand out.

Rather than trying to make unaspected planet conform to a social norm, you may want to find a challenging outlet for its energy – be it writing a book, learning a foreign language, forming a nonprofit organization, or practicing martial arts.  With positive direction, unaspected planets can become your strongest asset.

Do you have an unaspected planet in your horoscope?  (Remember we’re only counting conjunction, sextile, square, trine or opposition here.)  How does it get expressed in your life?  Please feel free to share your experience in the comment section below.

  1. Irish reader says:

    Apparently my Mercury (Leo, 8th hse) is peregrine. I have been working in the writing & translation industry for nearly 10 years and even studied foreign languages at university. Always been known as a bookworm amongst my family & friends. :) Is that a typical peregrine situation?

    Is a planet still regarded as peregrine if it has aspects to an asteroid (in my case, Mercury trines Pallas)

    Recently discovered your blog and it is fascinating reading, thank you! :-)

    • Hi, thank you for commenting and sharing your experience. This is definitely typical of peregrine Mercury, and it seems like you’re making a great use of it :)

      Yes, for the purpose of peregrine discussion, you only count the major 10 bodies (Sun through Pluto). Thanks for enjoying the blog!

  2. Hi, I found this post when searching for some help on unaspected planets. I have known my sun (10th Scorpio) is unaspected for a while now but it is only recently it is starting to become real. I have always felt misunderstood but have managed to integrate with the world (or look like I am integrating!) Right now things feel they are coming to a head and I am having to show myself but I the reaction of others makes me feel vulnerable – the fact that people treat me as if I am naive and need to learn their ways. Maybe I will go back into my shell again soon.

    • Thank you for sharing. It’s challenging to be yourself when there seems to be little outer support – but hopefully you’ll be able to find a good outlet to express yourself in a genuine, positive way.

  3. I’ve got Mercury in the tenth.

    Guess what. I don’t stop talking at work, just because I need to, as a teacher. And I feel that sometimes I speak too much not letting time for others to speak – but, this just in class.
    While with friends and any other activity that is similar, I just stay quiet, thinking a lot, making some fun, but never, stop thinking!

    I think more than I speak or my silence inverted, would reflect.

    I noticed that sometimes even while I’m dreaming, inside the dream I am able to think. Sometimes not so clearly, sometimes very clearly. Even now I can’t stop thinking, I just think and write what I think is corect, but this is not even half of what I wanted or should be writing.

    But, should I consider a mercury exiled in sagittarius conjunct to the MC as peregrine?
    I don’t think so.

    Well, I guess I didn’t pay attention.

  4. I have a conjunction of saturn and mercury in the 12th house. This conjunction has no major aspects to other planets. Does this count as peregrine? Sometimes I feel the isolation/darkness energy of this aspect runs away with my chart.

  5. Hi,

    I have unaspected sun (cap./12th) and mars (aquarius) in the 1st. Yeesh. I don’t have anger problems–although I’m a ferocious and ruthless opponent coming to my own or others’ defense if I feel someone is being bigoted or cruel. On the other hand, I can have a really hard time expressing or even feeling anger in my personal relationships–until I completely lose it and never speak to the person again (I also have mercury conj venus in the 12th). Though I will say this has improved massively with repeated failure, learning and age. (It has been a steep curve.) Sex has always been a challenge and a major interest. I’m terrible at maintaining an exercise routine, though I have too much energy not to. anxiety and insomnia have also at times been debilitating, though thankfully this also improves with healthy habits.

    As for the sun (or maybe this is sun + mars?), I can have a really hard getting myself moving and staying focused. Once I’m into something, be it healthy or not, my focus is unparalleled. I forget to eat, can’t bear to sleep, etc. My “purpose” in life is both of deep importance to me and a source of pain when I feel myself to be off the mark. Also, it’s true that I can be pretty self-absorbed/preoccupied like most unaspected sun people supposedly are, but I am also very invested in, kind and attentive to the others in my life. Also, the more I accept my (literal) self-interest, the more it fades into something superficial, taking up much less space in my life than it did when I was a kid and in my early twenties.

    I find I’m at my healthiest–and only happy–if I’m both exercising and writing creatively and/or painting on daily basis. If I neglect these, then I can develop serious mental health problems. Anyway, this is long. Hope it’s interesting and of use to your inquiries.

    One question for you:
    What is the impact of two unaspected planets in a chart–particularly the two most concerned with manifesting will? Is it reasonable to hope that through sheer effort I can get these planets to work with me over the long haul?


  6. Hello Mr. Niizato,

    I have a peregrine Venus in Cancer in the 8th house and I can see in a way how it expresses itself in my life. (or doesn’t) The runaway factor is very true. Sometimes my Venus has a magic all of it’s own that amazes me w/ it’s intensity when it shows up and then leaves me feeling inept.
    I can honestly say I have never has a solid single romantic relationship in my life. I’m 25 and I don’t know how to feel about that. In general I’m friendly, shy, and pleasant enough, but when it comes to romance or even the thought of it I run away.

    It seems I chronically avoid anything that requires me to open up past friendship w/ a person. Too me it seems to be too mortifying for words, but I like the idea of love. In my hearts of hearts I want an all encompassing type of love, something that’s not flaky and full of bs. I can’t stand bs. lol
    During the years I’ve had fleeting crushes and I’m fickle. Men (women) have tried to hook up w/ me, but once it gets past playful flirting, chatting, or I get bored, I snap at them and just shut them down. I get really uncomfortable and blurt out the most random things. lol
    I’m go from hot to cold quickly like a wave crashing through; I’m intensely attracted one minute (almost obsessively so) than I’m disgusted the next…it’s weird. I also have Moon and Mercury in the 8th as well.

    I like to write and illustrate so I create a lot of stories based off of love and relationships. Even if their not the main focus and I can somehow write and express all of these intricacies and complexities on paper as if I’ve experienced them, but in real life I’m completely inept in dealing with love. I notice that I can be really charming, beguiling, and perceptive in attracting people, but then it switches off and I feel odd. Kinda like a fish out of water. My Venus is Oriental as well can that also cause problems?

    Thank You.

    • Venus is very frequently oriental in majority of charts, so that won’t be a factor here. The defensiveness described in your story seems to be one possible expression of Venus in Cancer in 8th, but I’m sure there are a lot more going on in your horoscope that contributes to the pattern.

  7. I found this extremely interesting – thank you for writing this entry
    I’ve 2 questions…
    (1) I’m hoping you could clarify something for me… do aspects to angles mean a planet is unaspected?? e.g. if someone has a planet conjunct one of the angles, with no other aspects to planets etc – does this mean the planet is unaspected??
    (2) to start with an observation and to agree with what you wrote above about unaspected Mercury… Both my children have Mercury unaspected in the 11th House. My daughter’s in Gemini, my son’s in Leo. My daughter never stops talking, especially when out socialising, but also at home. My son on the other hand is quite shy, but if he’s somewhere familiar with people who are familiar then he’s also quite chatty.
    My question is that I want to clarify if having an aspect to the Moon’s North Node (&/or MSN) still counts as unaspected… I’m asking because my daughter’s Mercury has an aspect to the Moon’s Nodes – does that still qualify as an unaspected planet?

    • Hi Lea,

      Yes, the planets are considered unaspected (peregrine) even if they have aspects with the Angles or the Nodal axis. Thank you for sharing the examples of your children!


  8. Hello Mr. Niizato,

    What happens as the unaspected planet (e.g. Venus in Taurus) progresses and becomes aspected? Is it likely the person will be able to stabilize the Venusian energy or will it still be prominent/energy of its own?

    • I wouldn’t think along those lines – if that were the case everyone’s peregrine Venus or Mercury will calm down before they reach 20 years old or so, and that simply doesn’t happen.

  9. I am interested in this issue, so I would like to ask the following, which I wish you may take the time to reply:

    I have an unaspected Pluto Scorpio in the 12 house, while the ASC is Scorpio. Venus Scorpio is also in the same house. However, Pluto does not have any linkage with them, or with any planets. Would there be any significance? Thanks a lot.

    • If it’s true (i.e. Pluto is not sextile Neptune) you’d consider it as Pluto peregrine, which could be thought of as strong, often extreme, perspective that is not easily understood by others (12th house). Venus’ position adds to the sense of private values that you keep within yourself.

  10. Thank you very much for your reply.

    Yes, it is not even sextile with Neptune at all, which I find is too strange, since I learned that many people of my age should at least have this trait. Deep down I am really a private person who keep thoughts within myself.

    I would also like to know if this planet is really my ruling planet, as I have ASC Scorpio. If yes, what sort of influence will it have on my character aside from being private/secretive? I also consider it also affects my life tremendously. Sorry for inputing so much here. It is alright to answer the parts you are comfortable with. Thank you very much.

  11. Hi,

    Thank you very much for this article Mr. Niizato.

    Being aware of this makes me appreciate myself more.

    I’m a Gemini with an unaspected Mercury in Taurus in the 8th house. I am forever wondering about this part of my natal chart. I’m not sure, but my mind instinctively focused on my Mercury and its impact on me. What does this mean?

    I’m not the talkative type. I don’t talk nonstop. In fact, I don’t know what to say when I’m with people. Awkward moments with people and very reserved. So not the social butterfly Geminis are famous of.

    With friends, I’m more of a listener than the one who regales them with my stories/adventures…

    I guess what is true with my unaspected Mercury is the nonstop thinking. I can’t seem to stop doing it. In fact I love it… I cherish the time when I can be alone and be free to bring my thoughts to different heights or dimensions, depending on my mood. I can be very rational and at the same time can stay in never never land for hours…

    One of my problems is that I can’t seem to control my thoughts, as they tend to scatter in different directions. One moment, I’m thinking of ways to solve my current problem, then a moment later, I’d catch myself thinking of another thing… maybe my to do’s for tomorrow.

    Another thing is that I tend to worry a lot. Whenever I have a problem, I can’t seem to stop thinking about it, over and over, thinking of the same thing. My friend says I could have done more with the level of energy I waste worrying and over analyzing things that are really not that important. And she’s right… It’s just that I can’t seem to stop… Worrying to death is very me.

    I have a very short attention span, though I when I exert effort to focus, I can work for hours (at times at the expense of my health).

    I am restless, weak and even sickly when I have nothing to do or things are boring yet a powerhouse when I have lots to think about.

    Is this what an unaspected Mercury is supposed to be like? Or is this just me as a Gemini?



    • Thank you for sharing your experience. What you share and the way you share it is illustrative of peregrine Mercury. Your being a Gemini just emphasizes it that much more.

    • Thanks for writing your experience with unaspected Mercury, Alvin. I also have a Peregrine Mercury and I couldn’t identify with the non-stop talking part because I am mostly quiet, too. However, the non-stop thinking is exactly right. Without meditation, I would be dead! And it ain’t easy!

  12. A Sun Gemini with Asc Cancer, Moon Leo. I consider myself rational, calm and knowledgable, until it comes to love. My Venus is unaspected in Taurus.

    I have a lot of difficulty in love. It almost defines my life, as someone who has a lot of fixtation on love. I love to read about love stories that ended happily ever after and hate the idea of Romeo and Juliet. In fact, I find myself having difficulty in communicating with the person I genuinely like now. I can’t help doing things for her, but psychoanalyzing every action of hers, and feel very possessive over that person. Other times I feel distant, as I feel that even without me, she can still have a happy life.

    It’s a dilemma for me. Mostly as a rational person, only love trips me up. That’s frustrating to deal with, yet I feel as if I can’t help myself.

  13. Hi there,

    I have an unaspected Neptune in the 4th house. It is in Capricorn, also the only Cardinal sign in my chart.

    My Mercury also only has a semi-square to my North Node – My rising sign is Virgo thus he is my ruler. The older I become the more communication is paramount in my life – but my 3rd house is rather busy.

    What is your interpretation of my Neptune? I know I am a dreamer, but not an idealist for sure. Lose Saturn conjunct Sun got ride of that.

    • Peregrine Neptune is a bit unusual. The Neptune symbolism (within all its spectrum) probably overpowers everything else in your personality. Often the key is found in how to manifest the intangible ideals into physical expression.

  14. My daughters ascendant is Leo and the ruler the sun is peregrine in the third house. (Scorpio)

    If mercury becomes chatty when peregrine how would the sun be in the third house? As she’s only 6 months old its hard for me to know how it might work out.

    Would teaching be a good way to shine through her sun and third house?

    • It’s possible that the peregrine Sun in 3rd could manifest as over-communication in order to make herself be heard. This is not enough of an indication for one career over another, though.

  15. Hello, I have Mars in Virgo (2nd house) unaspected and retrograde. I tend to overreact to situations (anger especially). Sexually, I’m pretty open with a high sex drive. I don’t feel a lot of Virgoan like energy though, I’m not sure what to make of it.

  16. runningwater says:

    My husband, has unaspected mars in Aries in the first house, and unaspected saturn in virgo in the 6th house. I have been with him for almost 18 years, and all I can say is my gosh, I am still getting to know his deep dark bad self. His mars in Aries in the first house is I think our biggest problem, we never fight, and I don’t see him angry but he has his demons he is very good at hiding maybe because his rising sign is conjunct his venus at 28 degrees pisces ( he is very good at putting on a pretty, pleasing face) He is a very caring person, yet there is so much more to him, is there any advice you can give me?

    • He is better off using all that energy to work for himself (or as close to that as he can make it.) Venus and Pisces rising ameliorate the Mars expression, but also frustrate it.

  17. Thanks for posting this topic Hiroki!… I’ve long wondered about the impact of my unsuspected Venus in Scorpio, but even just contemplating it now is helping me become more conscious of how it has manifested at various times.

    I guess what I’d really like to know is:
    How can I make the most of my unsuspected Venus?… Will it ever result in me manifesting something meaningful in the world?… Will it help to focus more on the houses it rules (10th, 5th) ?… & Does the mutual reception between Venus & Pluto assist?

    I am a Libran with Sun, Merc, Uranus & MC all in Libra (& in the 10th House). Pluto is also in Libra conj MC but is on 9th H side.
    My ‘unaspected Venus in Scorp’ is in the 10th H also & is in mutual reception with Pluto in Libra.

    I’ve always had either very deep & intense relationships, or nothing at all… & the former began at an early age. I have been critized for my choice in partner, as its not always obvious to others why I would choose to be with them, but I’m very spiritual & tend to see the essence of someone rather than the packaging.
    Despite always attracting many admirers/partners & always being told I’m beautiful, I have intense & irrational issues around my value/worth, often lacking confidence, causing me to withdraw into isolation.
    I began practising Heart Centered meditation at a young age which led to the development of profound healing/regeneration & perceptive capacities, but although I was constantly sought after & encouraged to do soul readings, astro consults & do/teach healing, I’ve never felt comfortable or good enough.
    This has also been the case with regard to expressing my creativity.
    I’ve been very blocked in this regard, but love many areas of design especially interiors, homewares, jewellery & textiles… & although I’ve had EXTREME difficulty in ever completing anything, I am exploring short courses in interior design, jewellery design & textiles at present, with the view to designing all of the above in natural, eco, non-violent materials & methods.
    The unaspected Venus in Scorp may also be linked to my other experiences/idiosyncrasies(?):
    ~ Irrational fear of banks, in particular cheque/deposit books, as a child ( from as early as 5yrs).
    ~ From age 7, Strong early attraction to reincarnation (collecting books on the topic) & to visiting different churches/religions each wkend, everything from Hari’s to Lutherans. My mother would indulge this by arranging for me to ‘sit in’ alone or with a friend & collect me afterwards.
    ~ Obsession with the ‘Murder Casebook’ series of magazines (& various horror novels) between ages 12-15yrs.
    ~ Always inspired by & enamoured with the creativity of others (oftentimes being an unofficial agent for their work).
    ~ Survival issues around creating a sustainable/maintainable income.
    ~ Complications arising from feeling pressured to align with an inequitable & unethical economic system.
    ~ Feelings of not fitting in or belonging.
    Sorry it’s alot of info… But I’m only just beginning to understand where & how it may have been manifesting… after feeling for so long that i was’nt able to do anything with it.

  18. Darn, sorry Hiroki… Autocorrect on my iPhone keeps changing
    ‘unaspected’ to ‘unsuspected’.
    There’s something ironically Venus in Scorp about that.
    (Although Merc is retro in Scorp at present, perhaps that’s it).

  19. Unaspected Mercury in Leo / 7th house / ruler of the 8th here. I’m thinking and analyzing to the point of exhaustion. I feel a great urge to write an comunicate mystical and occul

  20. Unaspected Mercury in Leo / 7th house / ruler of 8th house here. I feel a strong pull to express and communicate to others my inner world through writing and music and in the last decade an urge for writing about occult subjects came to surface. I somehow make sure my close relationships feature a lot of these. When I’m active in this field my life seems ok. I have enough energy, I’m optimistic and my health is better. On the contrary, when I’m unable to be active in the above for one reason or another, my health suffers as I get all sorts of neurological disorders in the body, I get depressed, anxious, irritable, I loose focus and have trouble to get out of this state. When Mercury goes retrograde I usually find myself in an existential crisis. Otherwise I have also Venus, Jupiter (both combust) and Sun in Leo / 7th house. I’m very much interested in chromotherapy and I wonder for some time now if using Mercury colors would be beneficial in such case.

    • Hi, Rok,
      I also have neurological issues and an unaspected Mercury in the 7th house in Pisces. I think I can relate to what you wrote.

  21. unaspected Sun in Sagittarius/ 2nd house

    *in childhood I was viewed as a little boss, was really bossy and dominating but at the same time till this day I remember feeling restricted to fully express myself, because my behaviour had to be “appropriate”
    *the most important area in my life is education and career, there is a strong strive to be ANYTHING BUT mediocre
    *I have a strong belief that I want to be recognized for the skills that I posses, which are not just any skills, but those who can help the society and bring more awareness
    *I want to be irreplaceable
    *At the same time I have no idea what in particular sets me apart from other people, although this is a constant question for me
    *I am holding back at expressing my power, because as from my experience, people do not appreciate it and in my teens a lot of the time I have suffered by getting neglected
    *I always question traditions and ways of doing things, which authorities do not appreciate much, I also love to challenge authorities and am not afraid to go against them, but I am not a rebel without a cause, just want to find the truth

    I guess that sometimes it is difficult to tell where is my Sun playing out and where my Pluto in 1st house trine Mars.

    However I can feel that the Sun and 2nd house theme is a major one for me. Actually it is something that accompanies me everyday, a feeling which knows that it has to be expressed, however how and where is not answered. I am 21 so I am still in the beginning of the process

    • Well said! Thank you for sharing.

      • Unaspected sun in taurus in the 7th, cusp of 8th house.

        Wow – could not have said it better. Almost identical experiences. Have spent most of my life trying to hold back, often received as “too intense”, too powerful, too much. I also have pluto conjunct my ascendant (libra) and have often blamed this intensity on that aspect. But perhaps it’s the peregrine sun after all…or both :) To this day I really have no idea how to control this effect…

        Great article Hiroki. I recently became aware of this feature of my chart and your article helps clarify. Still learning how to manage it at 32…

  22. Veronika says:

    Hi there everyone, sorry if this has already been discussed but anyone can tell me a bit more abount unaspected mars in saggitarius in 2nd house? My son has it, his not even 2 and I already notice his anger and tantrums! Thanks

  23. I have an unaspected Venus in Taurus, House XI. Romantic is the one thing I wish for the most and the one thing I lack any control over. As a Sun Gemini in House XII, it feels doubly intensive that my public persona is desynced from my private love life and I have been terrible in handing relationships because people get a shock when they see the differences.

    Still troubles me till today, but hopefully I have the emotional maturity to see it through.

  24. Jill Rowan says:

    Hello, I’m an unaspected sun and have always felt that I didn’t belong in my family. I therefore missed out on all relationships and made coping without resilience very difficult. I always felt that I was adrift, without a direction or anchor. Still do. I have found friendships difficult and relationships impossible. Can you offer any guidance on how to overcome this? I’m nearly 62 and want to enjoy the rest of my life in a relationship! If that is at all possible..

    • You’re asking a very important question, but I can’t give you a satisfactory answer here just based on one measurement. Please schedule a consultation for a serious discussion, as we need to take the entire birth chart into account before any guidance can be given.

  25. Unaspected Saturn in Cancer | 8th House

    What you said is true about my father. I was conceived during an extramarital affair and so I’ve had no interaction with my biological father.

  26. Matthew LaMere says:

    I was born 3/7/70 5:44 am. Portland OR There was a full solar eclipse 3 hours after my birth.

    I am an Aquarius rising so Uranus is the ruler.

    You explained that you are using no Ptolemy aspects as the criteria of being Unaspected.

    My natal Uranus fits that criteria. Natal Uranus is Libra- the only air sign placement in my chart. It is also the only cardinal sign planet placement.

  27. I have Capricorn Uranus in the 10th completely unaspected (not even minor aspects). I do feel different and I’m having na hard time choosing a career or even getting some simple job to start a professional life.

    • With a peregrine Uranus in the 10th, you might need a greater amount of freedom while at work compared to most people. Creating your own hours, having your own space, work processes, etc. The rest of your horoscope will need to provide you with the resources to achieve this.

  28. JoHn Casas says:

    Hey, I’m a Capricorn with three planets in my chart unaspected. I have a mercury in Capricorn in the 4th, Jupiter in Aquarius in 6th, and Neptune in Capricorn in the 5th all unaspected. I’m not really the social butterfly even though I have my moments of confidence cause of my moon in Leo in the 12th. I can not stop thinking and when I’m with someone I’m comfortable with a can speak for hours. I tend to be quiet most of the time though. I like to think of music and movie ideas all the time which I believe has to do with my mercury thinking all the time and my Neptune increasing my creativity. I’m also facinated with occult studies like astrology lol. Anything unknown and spiritual Is interesting.
    I feel like I understand many things but i am unable to to express to others how I feel. I’m not good at getting my point accross. I’m a better listener. I could have picture perfect idea in my head but am unable to tell someone because I doesn’t come out right unless I get an intuitive flow of confidence.

    Here’s the rest of my chart if you want to know more about me. I don’t feel like typing too much lol.

  29. Wow oh wow! Dear Mr.Niizato, thank for posting this incredibly enlightening article. I now understand why this little light of mine, my peregrine Sun, hasn’t shined in years. You stressed the importance of maintaning a positive outlet for an unaspected planet & the proverbial lightbulb lit up every chamber of my psyche. You are absolutely, without a doubt, 100% correct!

    * My Scorpio Sun has a 5th house placement. While there are grand water trines, kites, etc. zinging around her, she is firmly peregrine and not even close to being aspected.
    * Throughout childhood, adolescence & my teen years; art, music, animals & children were my passion, my therapy, my shelter & my release.
    * I was a mother figure to, protector of, story teller & comic relief for my five younger siblings & several younger cousins. Oh, and neighborhood rescuer of any stray, injured, homeless creature I could hide until healthy, put food out for or just give hugs to.
    * I loved using my hands to create anything & when a violin was passed down to me in 6th grade, I joined my school orchestra (thank goodness I had a patient teacher.)
    * I’m not naturally gifted in art, nor music, but I loved it! Only sheer determination helped me to hone my limited skills & knowledge into forms that eventually shined. Which made me shine & persevere through a mighty unshiny childhood.
    * Many of the Scorpion’s challenging traits I did not identify with. Although I’m definitely the odd bug in my family. My folks often wondered (out loud!) what planet I came from when my questions were too profound, my heart too tender & I collected rocks instead of Barbie dolls ;)
    * Academic scholarships & grants offered an opportunity in a fully immersed, left-brain field. I didn’t have/make time for the passions that had sustained me for so many years and off I went into…..accounting (seriously.)
    * My Sun’s rays shone in fleeting, beautiful moments raising my children & sharing my love of creativity, gardening & storytelling. Life was full of too many directions (some my choice, some not) & the directions I loved the most were too few, too brief, too squeeeeezed in.

    The children are grown now, the gardens now tended by another family, my violin is collecting dust elephants & I can’t find an HB pencil in our down-sized, cizy abode.

    It is a truism that when you ignore the gifts & passions you were born with; (manifested by each planet and expressed through each house) the shadows of imbalance slowly creep up & pull the rug from beneath you. Those are the gentle reminders.

    I suspect that I ignored those gentle reminders many times. So before another tsunami hits I’m pulling out my Guarneri reproduction, gathering up the kids’ old sketch books from school & running with scissors.

  30. Hi, Mr. Niizato,
    I really appreciate this article. I just found your blog and I love it! Great work!

    I have a scattered type chart with Pisces Mercury unaspected in the 7th house. I also have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and I think this is important information for anyone else like me. Really pay attention to calming the nervous traits if you also have unaspected Mercury, particularly in Pisces because it can definitely affect your health. I read in the comments here that others have neurological issues with unaspected Mercury. I never connected this before.

    Have you found others with neurological issues with an unaspected Mercury, Mr. Niizato?

    • Hello, thank you for your comments. That’s an interesting thought, but I don’t think unaspected Mercury alone can account for the neurological issues (quite a lot of people have the configuration but have no neurological issues.)

  31. Hi Hiroki,

    Do you consider aspects that are within orb but out of sign when determining unaspected? For example is 29 virgo sun considered conjunct with a 2 libra mars?

    • Hi Mary, I consider out of sign aspect to be valid. So in your example, Mars conjunct Sun is active (although adjustment is needed because of the two planets’ signs not being in sync.)

  32. I have an unaspected Saturn in 9th and an unaspected Uranus in the 12th. A day without work feels a day wasted even if it is a Sunday. Thats probably the peregrine Saturn.
    Unaspected Uranus in 12th I am wondering, how that would be playing out in my life….any ideas ?

    • Hello Viv,

      Thanks for sharing your experience regarding unaspected Saturn (which seems to be manifesting as a strong sense of responsibility, purpose and ambition.) Unaspected Uranus can have themes such as a strong need for independence, willingness to take risks and express your individuality. Sometimes it can also suggest astrological study itself.

  33. Thanks Hiroki. You are right about unaspected Uranus. I have been studying various schools of thought on Astrology – Vedic, Western, Heliocentric, Uranian as well as Magi. This ties up really well :)

  34. My Uranus in the 5th(libra) is unaspected. It’s the ruler of my 8th. I have not quite been able to understand / connect with my sexuality/preferences. It feels confusing. I don t seem to want mainstream relationship and feel very connected to my male side although I m female but I’m predominantly attracted to males although quite effeminate ones. Any comments?? Also 2 of my children were very unusual and have died

    • Hi Lilith, thank you for commenting and sharing about your unaspected Uranus in the 5th house. 5th and 8th house both represent your sexual profile, so the “unexpected” or surprising quality of Uranus could definitely flavor this area of your life. Perhaps there is a quality of “more than meets the eye” in how you express yourself sexually.

      I’m sorry to hear about your children – such extreme experiences are rare and difficult to wrap our heads around.

      • Thankyou! Yes I feel there has been a sense of detachment to the sexual side of my nature in that my desire to relate has been in a less mainstream way and I’ve needed the other to activate that but now as I have gotten older I feel more able to state more free contracts of relating right from the start and I do wonder whether I ll write about other forms of relationships out with monogamous traditional set ups

  35. Roberto says:

    Hi Hiroki !

    Awesome work! I have just come across your website, and I am excited to explore it further! I will greatly appreciate your perspective on this. The only aspect that Pluto makes in my natal chart is a conjunction with Mars, and that is with Mars separating from Pluto with an orb of 7.3 degrees. Then for Mars, apart from that loose conjunction with Pluto, Mars is approaching a square from Jupiter with a 7.5 orb away from exact square. Would you consider my Mars and Pluto unaspected?
    Thanks a keep up the Fantastic work!

    • Hi Roberto, thank you for commenting. 7 degree orb is a bit wide, but you can still “reach out” and use the aspects’ potential as you need them. Orb is a span of consciousness, so the more alive and active you become in life, the more the orbs tend to widen and connect everything within your being. Hopefully this makes sense.

  36. Roberto says:

    Hi Hiroki!

    Your response is very beautifully put! I am so happy that I asked that question, as I am yet to come across that perspective from another astrologer. So the answer is YES and NO!

    My mars is somewhat unaspected, and so there are times when my Martian energy is more “raw” and feels uncontrollable because there is no planetary contact being easily made, and then at other times, as I use this energy more consciously with awareness, I get the support of the Pluto conjunction or the square from Jupiter.. WOW!.. I have always felt torn mentally about which articles to read in respect to my mars, Mars conjunct Pluto, Mars square Jupiter OR Mars Unaspected…

    Actually, you have just literally sparked a flood of insights!… What if from another vantage point, the opposite is also true?.. What if in the evolution of the soul, each planet yearns for its own sovereign expression, and to ultimately act “unaspected”, but before that energy can be used constructively, the planetary aspects serve as cosmic “training” wheels, like training wheels on a kid’s bike? So what if my martian energy truly yearns to be expressed freely without restraint (unaspected), but still wanted the security of a “safety net” (Pluto and Jupiter) far enough away that it does not interfere with its expression, once the energy can be managed, yet Pluto and Jupiter are still present so it can be called upon in case the unaspected martian energy needs censoring?

    Ok so you have really got this Virgo’s mind ticking now.. It is the one aspect, pun intended, in my natal chart that I have a question mark about.. And additionally, my mistake, my Pluto in libra 15 degrees is in exact sextile to Neptune in Sagg !.. So Pluto is aspected, it is Mars which seems to be a wild card!.. Anyways, Thank YOU for sharing your wisdom and insights so generously!..

  37. Thank you for the insightful article! Although various astrology sources have given me slightly different results (different orbs used, I think?), majority show that I have an unaspected Jupiter. The only ‘major’ aspect it has is a trine to my Midheaven. I’ve been a keen learner of all sorts of information since young, and have been especially interested in religion, philosophy and astrology since my early teens (I’m 19) despite a secular upbringing. Reading, understanding and thinking is a huge part of my identity, and it brings me much joy to be able to share my knowledge with others as well. I hope this anecdote helps you out with further understanding unsuspected Jupiter :)

    • Hello Wendy,

      Thank you for commenting and sharing about your unaspected Jupiter. I also have unaspected Jupiter and can relate to the need for learning and mental expansion.

  38. Thank you for the article! This helped me a lot!
    I have unaspected Jupiter in the 12th house and I love to learn the deepness of philosophical, cosmic and psychological matters since I know me as a person.
    But I have an Saturn-Mercury aspect and I always think I’m stupid and I’m not prepared enough to talk about what I know (or think I know)
    This has slowed me down a lot.
    If you have any tips in how to deal with it, please, let me know.

  39. Hi Hiroki. I have uranus unaspected in the 1st with Pluto and Mars conjiunct ac in virgo. Uranus is ruler of 6th house and north node 29 degrees aquarius. And i have juppiter unaspected in the 2nd house in scorpio. This hare very intense time for me. I have always been searching for my real self and searching joy in life. I have to break free … Reconnecting to my soul and my body… The only way to find my joy. Thank you for your interestimg work .

  40. Hi Mr Niizato,
    I have Saturn completely unaspected in the 5th with a sun in Libra (12th) and moon in Taurus (7th) and Scorpio Ascending. My life has been pretty difficult in these last 7-8 years. I also have Mars square Uranus. Mars (2 in sag) Uranus (MC in Virgo)
    What can I do to move my life positively with a work leisure balance?

    • Hi Libby,

      Unaspected Saturn does suggest importance of work, productivity and organization in one’s life. For accurate assessment you always need to look at the entire chart rather than try to connect a few select measurements. If you’d like me to take a closer look at your horoscope, please schedule a consultation

  41. Suzanne Pfitzner says:

    Noel Tyl incorrectly calls unaspected planets ‘peregrine’. Peregrine is a traditional astrological concept and Tyl is not a traditional astrologer. ‘Peregrine’ refers to a planet that has no essential dignity: rulership, exaltation, triplicity, face or decan. Peregrine brings a separate set of issues to an unaspected planet.

    • Hi, I’ll leave your comment on for the benefit of others that may get the same impression…Just to give you a perspective, I’ve heard Noel Tyl talk about this point several times – he is fully aware of the traditional definitions along with the traditional rules of dignities. The deviation of the term is intentional, and he has thought it out. For every traditional astrologer that would call him incorrect, there are many more modern astrologers that welcomed his fresh ideas.

  42. Hi Hiroki,

    Thank you for a great article :).

    I have an unaspected Mercury in Gemini in the 3rd house.

    Air is a big element in my chart. I have Sun-Jupiter conjoined in Gemini (4th), my Ascendant is in Aquarius and Pluto and the NN are both 8th house in Libra.

    When I was younger I felt isolated. A young unaspected Mercury had me talking to much; I was opinionated and an aggressive communicator and I was scatty with my thoughts.

    Being a wee bit more mature now I believe an unaspected Mercury allows for an unlimited perspective, and if perspectives are unlimited then no one person is right or wrong. I have always been devil’s advocate. When younger it came across as argumentative and most people directed anger at me for challenging their perspective (reflecting my Mars-Chiron conjunction). As I matured others felt I was weak for being agreeable / not having strong convictions of my own.

    I eventually learned to balance the objective side of Mercurial thinking with my own subjective take on life. An airy chart and unaspected Mercury have given me the gift of Change. Now I enjoy being adaptable, flexible, agreeable, cooperative and imaginative. Also having Neptune in the 10th allows me to move careers freely which ties in with my incessant studying / craving for new information (I have more qualifications than you could shake a stick at!). And I now express my Moon-Venus-Mars-Chiron conjunction (all in my 2nd house) in a caring, compassionate and practical way, while my Saturn in the 7th provides me with stability in my relationships.

    I think it’s safe to say we all experience the negative sides of ALL our placements when are our younger egotistical selves. But if we continually approach life with love and kindness in our hearts, then as we mature we learn life’s valuable lessons and (hopefully) become better people.

    I think, and feel, the single most important lesson to learn in life is that of crossing the line between victim-hood and self-responsibility; once self-responsible our natal and transit charts change unimaginably!

    All my love,

  43. Thank you for writing this page, Hiroki

    Many Mercuries un-aspected i found here, and Saturns’. People need to hear their thoughts, and work like clocks :P I guess.
    I prefer to think, myself, think and daydream… until i believe my thoughts have become. Alas, even though my thoughts are varied and sharp, openly painting a profoundly colourful future into existence, they lack, actual fruition. I believe this is because my Mars in 5th, in Cancer, is incapable of ushering in anything other than sex, fights & random explosive behaviour. My imaginations yearning to manifest the things it thinks up, sits without connection.

    That high sex-driven Virgo further up, and myself should meet up :P hehe
    we’ll put that virgoan energy to the test. Oh, but it’s not likely anyone alive appreciates me getting angry. I will literally (FUCK EVERYTHINGS SHIT UP) pardon, excusez mon français. Strangely, Mercury is my most well-aspected planet, aspecting all save for Venus & Sun.

    My Mars however, as the plot thickens makes a brave tight Square to Juno in Aries/2nd house. I am married, and Juno has managed (although very bravely herself) to bring all my dreams into fruition. She is like my personal angel, my saviour, with a tight trine to my Mercury & Trine to my Neptune, making everything i say and dream a reality.

    Now, how do you like them apples?

    When she appeared in my life 6 years ago.
    I released a rap EP
    I did boxing for 3 months, but then decided i wanted something with more finesse so
    1 year later i was a brown belt in Shotokan, but i believed i need something that tapped into the spiritual realm, so
    1 year later i was doing yoga regularly, and haven’t stopped since, i recently applied to take my qualification in Hatha yoga, in Rishikesh India, i’ve always imagined India would be a place where i become something special to myself, and am excited to finally go on such a beautiful journey.

    Now i am writing this, only for one reason, as my Sun exits the 12th house, and my Mercury Enters the 12th house i find myself looking back, thankful, and also fearful. That if my Juno disappears… I will become an animal again. :,(

    • Hi Lex, from what you wrote I wasn’t quite sure if you had any unaspected planet in the horoscope?

      • You mean after that emotional explosion and bad language, i finally didn’t say?! Oh my… why, it’s my Mars, Mars un-aspected 20 degrees in Cancer in the 5th house. That is the other problem, too much information, and no point-made, i would love to blame someone else for that, but unfortunately, it’s my own cross to bare. see the conundrum of my life. :P

  44. I have unaspected Venus in Leo, in 9th house. Never been in any serious relationship (i’m 21 yrs old). My Venus is truly like wild horse. She acts really unpredictable and is often total attention wh*re…

    • Thanks for sharing your experience! 9th house Venus will most likely take you away from your roots through relationships that enlarge your worldview. Venus being unaspected emphasizes its potential to do so…

  45. What it is considered unaspected? I have venus in capricorn 5th house semisquaring the sun at 0 degrees Applying and then my venus sextile mars and pluto by over 5 degrees seperating each , as well as venus in opposition to chiron by 6degrees seperating. I have a big problem with expressing love and finding love. I have been single for most of my life (26 year old) and soon venus is going to turn Rx by progression. I don’t feel any connection with my feminine side and that shows ..

    • Hi there, unaspected planet is usually defined as “lacking any ptolemaic aspect (conjunction, sextile, square, trine or opposition) to another planet”. We don’t consider minor aspects or asteroids in this definition (otherwise most everything will have one aspect or another.) Your sextile aspect is a ‘maybe’ depending on how wide of an orb you use for sextiles (in my case it’s 4 degrees).

      So Venus can be considered unaspected in your chart, which intensifies your need for connection (and your concern if this need is not satisfied).

  46. Thanks for writing, this is a very interesting article.
    I’m wondering about my unaspected Venus in Sag in the 10th. It is exactly on midheaven in my chart. Is it still considered unaspected? and how would having those two elements manifest?

    Thank you!

  47. Hello there,

    This is a really fascinating read about unaspected planets natally.
    I would be grateful if you tell me why I feel complete lethargy to the point where I don’t do anything about my life, nothing but lazing around. I should mention that my 7th-house Mars in Cap is Retrograde. As for anger, I rarely blow up in front of people; it just goes internally and fades out. I don’t have any difficulty dealing with anger. The worst about unaspected Mars Rx is that, for a fact, it makes me strongly inactive wasting time (yeaaaaars) and drivelessly lacking direction in my life. My question is: how should one with an unaspected Rx Mars deal with the issue of unassertiveness and drivlessness, and lethargy furthermost?

    Thanks in advance


    • Hi Joseph,

      Sounds like something got short-circuited in the course of your development – retrograde Mars does not show a lack of motivation, and neither does unaspected Mars (it’s in ambitious Capricorn, which is a very strong placement.) Other factors in your horoscope most likely reflects the life circumstances that may have resulted in this way of expression, but I can’t really say much more without looking at the entire chart.

  48. Hi Hiroki,
    My natal chart contains an unaspected sun in Virgo. Virgo is also ascending with Mercury conjunct my ascendant. Then, I have a packed 1st house stellium in Libra. I must say that my sun acts as a vacuum at times, and it tends to take over. Usually, I inly notice this after the fact. I have a tendency to grab ahold of something I enjoy and apply large amounts of attention to detail and analysis. From black and white photography, mysticism, to criminal psychology: if I become obsessed, it’s over. I must absorb ALL OF IT :-)
    (Kind of like astrology! Have studied since I was a child! I am now 7 years deep into psychological astrology and Jungian concepts)

    • Hi Amy, thank you for sharing your experience! If the Sun is in 12th house, it makes sense that your interests are directed toward arts and hidden areas of experience.

  49. Susanne says:

    No one’s commented with an unaspected Moon? I was hoping for more of people’s experiences. I enjoyed the article and it’s a favorite among those I’ve found on the topic. My Moon in Taurus (6H) is unaspected except a loose inconjuct to the Sun (Libra) and of course opposite the North Node (duh). This is a very difficult thing to deal with at times. I’m the hermit, keeping my distance, but also over-emotional to almost out of control at times. Definitely a detachment to people (not able to trust). It is easier to connect with “things” (hoarding tendencies) and animals (6H) than any other person. Still working on the psychological impact my upbringing has on my psyche, but this helps point to the origins in my natal chart.

    • Hi Susanne, thank you for sharing your experience with the unaspected Moon. The challenge with a Taurus Moon is that you may decide it’s more comfortable to stick with the status quo, even if you know intellectually that change is preferable. Unaspected Moon may magnify this tendency.

  50. hello,
    I have unaspected Saturn in 9th in Aquarius. I grew in religious orthodox family. My father was religious. I wasn’t allowed to do much stuff, like go to bath on Sundays, I used to prayed and confess my sins, but always doubted this. My parents divorced when i was 12 years old. We grew up with mom. My father was fanatic about religion. Later he calmed down and became a priest. It was very hard to start to communicate again. It still is. We touched up through arts, he encouraged me to draw, teached me how to play and bought my guitars. It was much easier for my sister, they still are like glued together, she has strong influence and physically and mentally depends on him. I’m tuck with some of fundamental ortodox believes that i got and it’s hard to not to feel guilty about things i do in life, like life i had, intimacy and not going to church anymore. But i know i don’t do nothing wrong, i’m happily married and have 6 month baby girl, i love my family, but still there’s a lot of shame and loss… but it’s a different story
    Thank you for this article and the others too. My mission is to connect as much dots in the world i can to find the true path i should go

    • Hi Julija, thank you for sharing your experience – isn’t it interesting that your unaspected Saturn in 9th house (religion) reflects your early religious experience (orthodox, confession etc) tied to your father (Saturn) who became a priest.

  51. Anna Lesniak says:

    Hello Hiroki,

    I have been studying my chart for about a year, and I have 3 unaspected planets. The Sun in Leo in the 9th House; Jupiter in Virgo in the 9th House; and Mars in Libra in the 10th House. I often find my energy and sense of purpose cyclic and unpredictable. My Mars in often passive-aggressive when I feel hurt by others. I either have so much drive to succeed that I don’t stop until I burn out, or I feel like a wanderer through the cosmic world. I find that my Saturn in Virgo in the 9th House conjunct my MC is what gives me the most stability. I love to learn and explore different religions, cultures, and healing practices. I’m an occupational therapist and I help my clients discover their own inner power, and educate others on alternative healing practices.
    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with this article and with your other posts. Have a great day!
    Anna :)

  52. Hi! I was blessed to come across your website today. I am curious about what an unaspected Lilith is all about. I have an unaspected Lilith in my 11th house in the sign of Leo. Any information you can give to me will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you!

  53. Hello Hiroki. As someone else commented above, I have a peregrine conjunction too. It’s Sun and Pluto in the 12th h in scorpio. This is, pherhaps, the only thing that caughts completely my eye when I see my chart. I haven’t looked for many other details, to be honest. I’m not too sure how to explain my experience. Death is a great issue in my life, I believe there’s been times when I could smell it before it happened or even dreamed about it. I have been extremely paranoid and fearful, but managed to pretend calmness. Sometimes I get the feeling I’m headed to complete chaos, it’s funny though, things in my life seem a little calmer than years ago. But the smell of death always follows me! I know it’s never going to stop. I also get the feeling, more and more, that I can’t concentrate on daily issues or common worries because I’m absorbed by death and my own inner thoughts. Sometimes I think I’m completely disconnected from the rest. I’m just trying to remain calm and live the best I can… till chaos comes. Thanks a lot for your article! would you have any comment on this peregrine conjunction? or any advice?

    Thank you,


    • Hi Lia, much of what you shared reflects the conjunction of Sun and Pluto in 12th house, which seems to point to unresolved trauma affecting the self-image (this is not the only possible expression of this placement, but seems like something is demanding your attention from the unconscious). If they’re truly “peregrine conjunction” then their strength will be even more pronounced.

      • Thank you so much for anwering. Pluto makes a trine to my chiron in the 8th house in cancer. My sun is only aspected by Pluto. Do you think it’s peregrine?

        The unresolved trauma makes sense…

        • You could interpret the conjunction as a kind of peregrine island (there isn’t a technically exact definition for a peregrine conjunction, since this article deals with unaspected planet), or you could consider the 8th house connection as a reinforcement to the Pluto theme. Either way, Pluto will most likely demand that you delve deeper into the hidden emotions for healing.

  54. Hi Hiroki,

    I have an unaspected moon in gemini in the 12th house. What can you tell me about this position?

    • Hi Mare, Unaspected Moon is a highly individualistic placement that requires you to follow your unique path in life. 12th house placement emphasizes difficulty in connecting to your own (and probably with others’) emotions, so some study and learning (Gemini) may be needed to access your positive feelings.

  55. Hi,

    Its very difficult to find information on unaspected planets. I have an unaspected Saturn in the 1st in Scorpio and i have recently found that my son has an unaspected Venus in his 4th in Taurus. I wanted to know if there were any aspects in my chart that might support his unaspected Venus but the only aspect we share in a synastry chart is my Saturn opposed his Venus. Would you be able to shed some light on aspects that are helpful and supportive to an unaspected planets? I would be curious to know what would be useful to an unaspected Venus.

    • Hi Ju, you may want to look up the midpoints formed by the unaspected Venus, because that creates a relationship to two other planets or points that may support a successful expression of the untethered energy of the unaspected Venus.

  56. Hi Mr.Hiroki. I’m honestly at lost how to determine unaspected planets.
    I had trouble with directions generally. Can you give some guidance? Please bear with me.

    If I understand correctly, it means isolated planets without any aspect linking to other planets, right? Say, for example like in my chart, Leo Mars in 9th house is in trine with asc. Is that unaspected? I’m starting with basic (I think), since I’m not confident with my abilities anymore.

    Thank for your time and hearing me out. Sorry if I’m bothering you.

    • Hi Zoey, to determine unaspected planets, we only consider the aspects to other planets. Aspects to Angles (ASC, MC) do not count. So your Mars would be unaspected if you do not have any other major aspect (0, 60, 90, 120, 180) with other planets.

      • Thank you for clearing my confusion, Mr.Hiroki. Using your information as guideline, my Mars is considered unaspected if I cross out it’s only aspect to ASC. Am I reading this right? What does this position mean, the unaspected Mars in Leo in 9th house?

        Okay, just to make sure I got clarification I need: my Scorpio Sun in 12nd house is in conjunction with Mercury at 9.55orb or 6 degree and in trine to Saturn at 3.29orb or 79 degree. Does that fits the bill of ‘unaspected planet’? As you can see, I don’t understand how people use orb/value to read. I know I’m missing something but couldn’t pinpoint what. Sorry, if that personal.

        I am so sorry for so many questions Mr.Hiroki. I’m in pursuit of my trueself and trying to navigate the world which are utterly kinda useless without sense of directions. Oh, I stumbled through your article when I goggled ‘natal chart job satisfaction’ if you’re wondering. I don’t really have any lifestory to share, so that’s why.

        I appreciate if you decided to answer some more of my question. I promise that’s the last one. If not, still, thank you for spending time on me. Have a good day :)

        • Hi Zoey, I’m not understanding your question – the orb and degree you listed don’t make sense…Please try to rephrase.

          • Sorry, my bad, Mr.Hiroki. My question(s):

            1) Is my Mars unaspected based on information I gave out? If yes, could you explain what does it mean in this position, Leo in 9th? If no, just state ‘no’.

            2) Is my sun unaspected? This is copied directly from cafeastrology.com table:

            Planet Aspect Planet Orb/Value
            Sun Conjunction Mercury 9.55 6
            Sun Trine Saturn 3.29 79
            Sun Sextile Midheaven 1.55 104

            Does that make sense? If you wish for a natal chart diagram, I would include it next post. Is imgur alright? Please ignore me, if this troubles you. I am thankful for your assistance.

          • Hi Zoey, sorry but I’m not understanding what you mean by the “value” you posted. Trine is a 120 degree aspect (not 79) and Sextile is a 60 degree aspect (not 104). Hence it does not make sense.

            You might want to learn the basics of astrology using your birth chart, which will allow you to make sense of the information in this article (once you learn what each aspect is and figure out the distance between planets it will not be difficult).

  57. I have unaspected sun And unaspected Saturn. I definetly feel different from others bc I do not value many of the things others value. It seems that I am living in a very material world, yet possession mean nothing to me. Nor do other indicators of worldly success. I feel people find me strange bc of my lack of interest in these things. With unaspected Saturn, I can see that my relationship with my father has been affected. Thank you for all the information in your article, a lot of stuff makes much more sense now.

    • Hi Brandon, thank you for sharing your experience with unaspected Sun and Saturn. Having and pursuing your own unique set of values seems to be an important need for unaspected Sun.

Speak Your Mind
