The big aspects between the slow-moving outer planets are some of the most potent astrological influences we encounter. Some of these contacts can affect us for months, even years, at a time, shaking our lives to the core as they transform us at deep (often unconscious) levels. Further, the individual aspects between pairs of planets fall into long-term cycles of decades or even centuries-long duration, creating historical influences that can shape grand stretches of time. The dance of the outer planets is indeed one of the most fascinating areas of astrology!
The following links will take you to the descriptions of the big aspects currently in effect. For a complete list of all the Big Aspects by Planetary Pairs, see the index further down on this page. You can also browse the individual pages of big aspects.
Check out the Current Transits pages for information on each aspect as they happen. Also, the planet positions listed under each aspect should be considered Critical Degrees for the duration of the contact -- if not much longer.
The profiles of the Planets and the Aspects provide useful background info to further understand these big aspects. See the Glyph Glossary for a description of the symbols for planets and aspects used on these pages.

OK, so alot of these aspects, even the big ones, are not only olde, but rather forgetable in the grand scheme of things. However, in the context of the ongoing cycles between planets, each aspect is a significant part of the entire story.
The following lists of aspects are organized to show entire cycles of aspects between particular pairs of planets, allowing you to quickly find related aspects within a cycle. This is a complete index for all the "big aspects" in my collection.
The numbers in parentheses after each aspect indicate the year(s) when the aspect occurs (is exact). A year is given for short-term aspects or a range of years for extended, multi-contact aspects. These dates do not include the time (often months or years) leading up to the aspect or following it when the aspect is "in orb" and exerting an affect on us, but not exact.
