Professional astrologers can look at a chart wheel and quickly identify what planets are in aspect and what the orbs of the aspects are. This is an essential skill. In this tutorial video we explain how this is done and how you can practice doing this until you are able to do this quickly as well.
You must memorize which zodiac signs are cardinal, fixed, and mutable, and which signs are fire, earth, air, and water signs.
Also explained in this tutorial video is how to determine if an aspect is applying and separating and whether it is waxing or waning. We also review sign rulerships and the speed of planets.
These are things that every competent astrologer is very comfortable with and after working with these ideas regularly they will become very natural and as easy as other basic skills that all of us have like adding and multiplying small numbers.
