The Kite aspect pattern is formed a Grand Trine which has an opposition from one corner of the triangle to the opposite side of the chart, which sits at a sextile to the other two corners of the triangle. It looks as you’d imagine, like a kite or a diamond.
Not only is this a rather pretty looking aspect pattern to observe in the natal chart, it actually contains some of the more fortunate and free flowing components of the Grand Trine, while having the benefits of a hard aspect wired into it by the opposition.
Further to that, this pattern is then coaxed into productivity with two rather helpful sextiles.
As you should be aware by now if you’ve been tuning in for a while, planets at a trine have to be 120° apart, give or take 6° orb. Those at a sextile have to be 60° apart with a 4° orb, and those in opposition will be 180° apart with a wider orb of 8°. So for this aspect pattern to be possible, the planets involved have to sit within these orbit points quite accurately.
This is a kind’ve like a ‘new and improved’ Grand Trine. With the Kite we’re offered the fortune and flow of the Grand Trine, plus the challenge of the opposition which indicates relationships with others who can highlight differing perspectives, encouraging us to channel the complacency of the Grand Trine into something productive by pulling us out of our comfort zone.
The sextiles involved are in compatible signs, coaxing us to take up opportunities presented and tempting us with future potentials that appeal to us. As the hard aspect of the opportunity pushes us somewhat, the tendency to take up these opportunities is more likely and the work involved seems to be justified by the potential outcome.
