The semi-sextile is considered a "minor aspect" and is 30
degrees. The following are descriptions of semisextiles
between the planets Sun through Pluto.
Sun semi-sextile Moon
You instinctively gravitate towards situations and environments that are
well-balanced, and you veer away from melodrama, emotionalism, male chauvinism
and other extremes. See also our interpretation of
Sun semisextile Moon.
Sun semi-sextile Mercury
You appreciate the ability of the human mind to develop clear and precise
understanding of nature. You are a big supporter of improving educational
standards and you may also promote improved methods and standards in the
education of young children. See also our interpretation of
Sun semisextile Mercury.
Sun semi-sextile Venus
Most likely if you move into a new house or apartment, pictures will be on the
walls and flowers in vases on the tables very soon. You feel very uncomfortable
in environments that lack at least a small degree of charm and beauty. See also
our interpretation of Sun semisextile Venus.
Sun semi-sextile Mars
When you set your mind to do something, it will get done. You have the strength
and sufficient energy and ambition to meet whatever obstacles you may encounter.
Your strength may not be your most salient characteristic or be flamboyant, but
you do have the energy and drive to effectively apply to things that are really
important to you. See also our interpretation of
Sun semisextile Mars.
Sun semi-sextile Jupiter
Periodically good opportunities and benefits come to you, and assist you on your
path in life. These "lucky breaks" are not frequent but they are very helpful.
You usually are able to distinguish the real opportunities from the unrealistic
ones or the scams. See also our interpretation of
Sun semisextile Jupiter.
Sun semi-sextile Saturn
When you meet challengers and obstacles, you have the resourcefulness and
discipline to bear down and focus on these challenges. Most likely you are not
an ascetic, but you are willing to let go of comforts or habits when needed.
Sun semi-sextile Uranus
Like most people, you occasionally need a chance to let your hair down, and be
less reserved than usual. When you allow yourself the opportunity, you can be
very innovative and original, perhaps more than others, and even you, thought
Sun semi-sextile Neptune
Like most people, you have dreams and fantasies. Whether your dreams involve
travel, success, meeting certain people, or other things, they are your personal
dreams. Your life will be more fulfilling if you take practical steps, even if
they are very small steps, to realize these dreams. The choice is yours.
Sun semi-sextile Pluto
Like many other people, you have a need to do something in life that is prompted
by your deepest yearnings and intuition rather than take what is the expedient
and safe path for you. A concrete example of this dilemma is whether to take a
secure job that pays well or to pursue a career that you feel compelled to
pursue. These kinds of dilemmas are not unusual and there is no way to easily
resolve them, but you must not ignore the voice deep within you that at times
drives you to break normal routines and work beyond "normal" work hours or
practice or pursue an area that you feel drawn to.
Moon semi-sextile Mercury
Very likely you are blessed with some excellent friendships and family
relationships. You enjoy close and meaningful communication with others. These
traits are not unusual or extreme but do play a part in your life.
Moon semi-sextile Venus
Like many people, you have a sentimental side that you don't show to the world
at all times. You can be a good parent and having a close, strong family gives
you confidence and strength.
Moon semi-sextile Mars
When a situation arises that requires a competitive spirit, you are capable of
being aggressive and focused on the challenge. Like most people, you can
patiently endure a reasonable amount of frustration, but you may surprise even
yourself by becoming very angry if frustration becomes excessive.
Moon semi-sextile Jupiter
Like most people, you enjoy an occasional family gathering or party, and you
will generously offer to have the party at your house or contribute in some
other way. Over time you are likely to have a fairly large number of friends and
Moon semi-sextile Saturn
You are not afraid of solitude. When necessary, you are content to be alone with
a book, a project of some kind, or on a walk. You are not a hermit but you have
the capacity to withdraw and this is a good and healthy quality that helps give
you balance, perspective, a peaceful disposition, and wisdom.
Moon semi-sextile Uranus
Like most people, you enjoy being free-spirited and childish on occasion and you
enjoy zany comedy or other entertainments to periodically break the usual
routine. This may not be one of your strongest or most conspicuous traits, but
it is one aspect of your personality.
Moon semi-sextile Neptune
You benefit greatly by periodically giving yourself time to be in an
inspirational environment, whether that be a church, a beautiful natural
setting, or by listening to beautiful music. These experiences recharge you,
keep you centered and focused, and help you direct your energies to the things
that are really the highest priority for you.
Moon semi-sextile Pluto
Like most people, you need to occasionally cry or laugh uncontrollably, to let
your deepest feeling be expressed. You may also enjoy suspenseful movies or
books, depth psychology, or other ways of exploring or expressing deep emotions.
This trait is not likely to be a dominant one but is part of your personality.
Mercury semi-sextile Venus
Like many people, you appreciate and enjoy beautifully written and beautifully
spoken words. An enchanting story captivates you and you are attracted to people
whose speech is articulate or colorful.
Mercury semi-sextile Mars
You are a good student because you are not satisfied with learning something
until it is very concrete to you. You become a bit impatient if you cannot grasp
something, and you may incorrectly conclude that you lack aptitude for the
subject when actually you are not allowing sufficient time to learn. These
traits are not especially strong or unusual and may not be sufficiently
conspicuous that you are aware of them.
Mercury semi-sextile Jupiter
Like most people, you have some interest in larger issues like philosophy,
politics, and religion. You plan for the future and you do not become so
engrossed in minute details that you overlook the larger context. These traits
probably are not particularly conspicuous or unusual but they do make up part of
your personality and give balance to your life.
Mercury semi-sextile Saturn
If you are interested in a subject, you are very good at analyzing the concepts
and ideas in detail until you understand them thoroughly. You are then able to
explain the material to others very effectively because you have analyzed the
subject thoroughly. However, your capacity for clear and detailed analysis is
only triggered when you are very motivated, and when a subject does not interest
you, you are content with a superficial or "sloppy" comprehension of the
Mercury semi-sextile Uranus
You appreciate people who are clever, have a good sense of humor, and who do not
simply follow the status quo or accepted views. You are not an iconoclast but
you do become bored with dry, repetitive studies and you gravitate to areas that
are stimulating and require fast responsiveness to changing circumstances. You
have good reflexes and you handle fast-paced situations fairly well.
Mercury semi-sextile Neptune
You may not be a poet or philosopher but you do enjoy inspirational messages and
ideas or imaginative ideas. Reading good literature or working with imaginative
ideas at least periodically is important for you. A life filled with just
mundane concerns is too dull for your taste.
Mercury semi-sextile Pluto
Like most people, you enjoy becoming engrossed in a subject and developing
expertise in areas that are interesting to you. Your inclination to be
passionate about subjects that interest you helps you succeed on the path that
you choose in life.
Venus semi-sextile Mars
Like most people, happiness and fulfillment in a romantic relationship or
marriage is very important to you. It is important to you to make your life
beautiful and harmonious. These traits are not unusual but are an important part
of your personality.
Venus semi-sextile Jupiter
Like most people, you appreciate things that are made with quality, and
prosperity and financial well-being are important to you. Your appreciation of
good quality and prosperity motivates you to grow and develop, to meet new
people, and to have an active life style.
Venus semi-sextile Saturn
Like most people, you are responsible and dedicated to loved ones, and you are
more touched by sincerity and respect than by formal displays of affection, such
as expensive gifts, that are not given from the heart.
Venus semi-sextile Uranus
Like most people, you enjoy sometimes breaking free from your usual routine with
some lively music, dance, or socializing. You enjoy an occasional adventure and
Venus semi-sextile Neptune
Like most people, you want an element of magic in your life, and a marriage that
loses its romantic feeling, or an environment that lacks a little magical
feeling and is too prosaic, is dull and depressing to you.
Venus semi-sextile Pluto
Like most people, you feel passionate about some things and you are drawn to
certain situations and people through a kind of destiny or invisible magnetism.
Mars semi-sextile Jupiter
Like most people, you are not a person who stays at one level of success and
achievement in your life. You move up the ladder and you occasionally take
risks. Most likely this trait is not one of the most dominant and conspicuous in
your personality, but it does serve you well and helps you be productive and
Mars semi-sextile Saturn
Like most people, you are willing to cut back and make some sacrifices when
times are difficult or some hard and unpleasant work is needed. Your ability to
face responsibilities rather than give up during periods of adversity helps you
to be successful and have a healthy, balanced life.
Mars semi-sextile Uranus
Like most people, you become impatient and angry when faced with repeated delays
and frustrations. Fortunately, your need for action and dynamic progress is not
constant and pervasive, but there are times when you will become impatient and
possibly angry when faced with obstacles and inefficiency.
Mars semi-sextile Neptune
Like most people, you have dreams that fuel your life. Whether your dreams are
grand or modest, whether you dream of material and social success, of traveling,
of having a family or of being a star, you should integrate your dreams into
your real life rather than consider them unattainable. Your dreams can give
greater meaning and depth to your life.
Mars semi-sextile Pluto
Like most people you are able to work at times driven by an inner compulsion.
You are happiest when your work is personally meaningful, and if you are
employed in a position which does not hold your attention, then there is a
likelihood that you will eventually seek different employment.
Jupiter semi-sextile Saturn
You have a good practical sense for business and conducting your life in
general. You tend to avoid wild speculation and gambling, but you do avail
yourself of new opportunities.
Jupiter semi-sextile Uranus
When there is a party, social gathering, or you just get in the mood, you can be
very upbeat and funny. You often take an optimistic view of things and this
draws good opportunities to you.
Jupiter semi-sextile Neptune
Once in a while you like to let your imagination soar. You may travel to a
distant place or read fantasy or go to a movie. You can derive new inspiration
that can infuse your life with vision and imagination. Negatively, you could
periodically gamble or squander your resources in hopeless dreams.
Jupiter semi-sextile Pluto
Periodically throughout your life you will become involved with influential
people and have the opportunity to achieve a greater level of success and
influence in your life. If you handle these opportunities well, you can advance
in stages to a greater level of social influence and success.
Saturn semi-sextile Uranus
You can tolerate bureaucracies and outmoded systems to a point, but if the
calcification, rigidity, and unresponsiveness is strong, you will rebel and
refuse to cooperate.
Saturn semi-sextile Neptune
You are not gullible or prone to pursue glamorous, superficial interests. You
have a sincere and sober attitude.
Saturn semi-sextile Pluto
When necessary, you are capable of discipline, sacrifice, or austerity to
achieve what is important to you.
Uranus semi-sextile Neptune
Like most people, you enjoy a bit of wonder and magic, perhaps a fairy tale, the
Christmas season, or a story of seeming miracles. These little diversions may
not seem important, but they give greater meaning and depth to your life than
you may realize.
Uranus semi-sextile Pluto
Like most people, you need occasional times to be free of rules and regulations
and express yourself in a wild or free-spirited way, or to improvise and be
spontaneous. These periodic times when you are more spontaneous or wild may not
seem particularly important, but they help you to function in a healthy and
Neptune semi-sextile Pluto
Like most people you are periodically gripped by a need to pursue your dreams.
This tendency may manifest in subtle ways, like a need to purchase a
particularly beautiful or inspiring item or to visit a particular place. The
passion and wonder you feel at such times gives real meaning and value to your
