What you see above are all of the aspects used by Western Astrology for Justin Bieber’s birth chart — well, almost, not counting parallels of declination and antiscia. It’s a hugely confusing mess, and I do this for a living. I can’t blame anyone for being a little intimidated by it at first.
I’m going to be teaching VEDIC ASTROLOGY WITHOUT TEARS on Facebook (free until the end of the month!), and for one low price you’ll be able to learn the power of Vedic Astrology in a relatively simple way. Here’s an example: Vedic Aspects.
With Vedic astrology, there’s no need to worry about the difference between trines and squares and sextiles and quintiles and such, and which ones are “good” and which ones are “bad.”
Here’s Justin Bieber’s South Indian chart. In this kind of chart, Pisces is always in the top left hand corner, and the Signs go around clockwise.
Signs and Houses are basically the same thing. In the Vedic system, Justin Bieber’s Ascendant is at 5 degrees Scorpio, so the entire Sign of Scorpio is his First House. The entire Sign of Sagittarius is his Second House, all of Capricorn is his Third House, and so on. Starting with the Ascendant in Scorpio, which is in the vicinity of the bottom left, we count around clockwise. So, that’s Mercury in his Third House.
A planet aspects the House that it is in and any planets there, and it aspects the opposite House, and any planets there. Easy! Here’s how it works with Bieber’s Mercury.
So, we find the Ascendant in the bottom-left area — Scorpio. We count around clockwise to Mercury and see it is in the Third House, which in his case is Capricorn. So we say that his Mercury aspects his Third House and the opposite House — The Ninth.
Now, let’s move on to the next House — the Fourth, which looks pretty packed.
The Fourth House, as you may know, rules the mother. Gosh I wonder if Justin’s Mom has been an influence? Anyway, there in the Fourth are Sun, Venus, Mars, and Saturn. Since a planet aspects the House it is in, the opposite House, and any planets in those Houses, Justin has a Sun, Venus, Mars, Saturn conjunction. Yes, even though his Mars and Venus are 26 degrees apart, it’s still a conjunction.
Now, let’s look at his Moon and Jupiter.
Since we start at the Ascendant and count around clockwise, his Moon and Jupiter are in his Twelfth House. And even though they are 20 degrees apart, they are conjunct. So, he has a Moon-Jupiter conjunction in the 12th House that aspects the Twelfth House and the Sixth House.
And hey, what about his Nodes, in the First and Seventh Houses? In Vedic astrology, the Nodes are said to “cast no rays,” meaning they don’t aspect anything other than the House the are in. Easy!
Now if that’s all you learned, you’ve already got a good handle on how aspects work in Vedic astrology. Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn also have special partial-strength aspects of their own that they cast above and beyond the ones mentioned above. Mars casts a 3/4 strength aspect 4 Signs and 8 Signs from its natal placement:
Jupiter casts a 1/2 aspect on the Houses that are 5 and 9 Signs/Houses from its natal placement:
Now we see how Jupiter takes on extra significance in The Beeb’s chart. With it aspecting all that stuff in the Fourth, luck must be a big factor in his life somehow.
Finally, Saturn casts a 1/4 strength aspect 4 Houses/Signs and 10 Houses/Signs from its natal placement.
Okay, there you have it — aspects! See how relatively painless that was?
