This is an aspect pattern which is much like the Grand Cross, but cut in half from corner to corner like a sandwich (am I writing when hungry again?!).
Two planets sitting in opposition to each other at 180° apart are pulled into a tense pyramid of power when a planet sits on the very top.
When connecting the lines from the middle of the opposition and the planet sitting at the mid-point, the letter T can be seen in the natal chart.
This planet which forms the tip of the planetary mountain – or volcano as I like to think of it – is also known as ‘the apex’ which is where the tension from the opposition is focussed and ejected.
Just like the grand cross, a T-Square will be formed of different elements, but will have the mode in common (unless the orbs are wide and are sitting at the end or beginning of signs that are in unrelated modes).
As with the opposition, relationships are implied, and with the square aspect there is an unavoidable internalised friction which cannot be ignored.
Like my counselling skills teacher says “relationships are the vehicle to change” and this is exactly the type of challenge instigated by this aspect pattern.
Much like the Grand Cross, this aspect pattern is very powerful. However, they only contain one opposition which feeds into a pyramidal apex which I feel mimics an active volcano.
The configuration seems to act as a planetary feedback loop which continues to cycle around and around spring lava from the apex.
