mystic rectangle

6R10DB9 mystic rectangle info. there's a lot of "doubling" on this chart involving kites, trines & rectangles that i need to get clear about before selecting the best time/location. the first chart i did (above) shows the 6R10DB9 pentagram with strong aspect lines for MOON/JUPITER & SATURN/NEPTUNE. however, the mystic rectangle isn't clearly defined. two pentagrams can be created on this chart:


however, PLUTO is part of the mystic rectangle — not JUPITER. a chart with a SUN-MOON conjunction (Greenwich) clearly shows PLUTO in the mystic rectangle & places {a} Part of Fortune at the Ascendant & {b} True Node at chart's zenith. since the orb has increased, the SUN-JUPITER aspect line is thinner & doesn't visually dominate the SUN+MOON-PLUTO aspect line.

The Aspect Patterns Defined :: A Mystic Rectangle is formed when two pairs of oppositions are sextile each other. The result is an aspect pattern that includes two sextiles, two trines and two oppositions. A Mystic Rectangle will always be in the same polarity, either masculine (Air and Fire) or feminine (Earth and Water). This is another "soft" aspect pattern in that it does not generate friction, discomfort or a need to take action. What a Mystic Rectangle does offer, however, is an extremely strong sense of balance and structure, of harmony between the four planets involved. Finding this balance is not a given ­ it will still take conscious effort and awareness. However, working with the Trines and the Sextiles will help to make more sense of and find the point of integration for the two oppositions. Working with a Mystic Rectangle takes some practice because in order for it to hold up, all four planets must be working together and supporting each other. It is common for individuals with Mystic Rectangles to struggle with the two Oppositions, see-sawing back and forth between the opposing planets. Once the point of balance has been found, however, it becomes increasingly easy to maintain, and a well integrated Mystic Rectangle can be the most unflappable of aspect patterns. Once an individual has integrated a Mystic Rectangle, it represents a core of strength for them, and a solid foundation that can be a great gift in handling whatever else life throws at them.

The Mystic Rectangle :: The Mystic Rectangle configuration is made up of two oppositions, with two sextiles and two trines forming a rectangle between the four planets involved. This can be a very favorable configuration as it brings a balance of harmonious and hard aspects. The harmonious trines and sextiles ease the road and provide the skills and good fortune needed to succeed and they are complimented by the two oppositions which provide the difficulties needed to grow as well as a place to direct the positive energies of the harmonius aspects. This is a very strong configuration and often makes self-improvement very easy but it can hinder growth outside of the aspects contained within the Mystic Rectangle.

An Introduction to Aspects and Chart Shaping in Natal Astrology :: This consists of four planets connected in a rectangle of two squares and two trines, together with two oppositions connecting the opposite planets. Despite the name there is nothing mystical about this pattern. The combination of tense and harmonious aspects produces the best possible potential for the constructive use of natural talents.


Although the opposition is generally regarded as “disharmonious” or dynamic, it often has quite a motivating and energizing effect. Here too, the quality of the aspect depends on the planets involved, and on what one makes of it. On the whole, an opposition between two planets creates tension between them, often with positive results.

 • GEM (Air)-SAG (Fire)
 • LEO (Fire)-AQU (Air)


The trine is a harmonious aspect, the planets involved work together in a complementary fashion, enriching one another. Trines show where our natural talents lie, whether we actually make use of them or not is up to us.

 • GEM (Air)-AQU (Air)
 • LEO (Fire)-SAG (Fire)


The sextile tends to have a harmonious effect, depending of course on the planets involved.

 • SAG (Fire)-AQU (Air)
 • GEM (Air)-LEO (Fire)
