After becoming familiar with the planets in their signs and houses, you're ready to look at how they relate to each other. In astrology, the planets are said to aspect each other. This is their relationship or the way they either create friction or harmony. Hidden in these relationships are more clues to understanding your unique set of "energies" and the interplay between the individual components. I've outlined the Grand Trine in Fire in Harry's Chart because this would stand out to me in preparation for a reading.
When planets "trine," they are of the same element.
The MC in a chart points to a career path, but in a wider sense to a person's destiny. Here, the MC in Aries points Harry toward being a pioneer and taking action even though he may be afraid. The Grand Trine is just one of many aspects that can occur in a chart. For Harry, it is auspicious since it gives him a matrix of harmonized fire energy to fulfill his destiny.
Each line on the birth chart represents an aspect or relationship between two planets.
Some are in harmony, and this is where you'll have natural talents, ease or good fortune. A trine is between planets in signs of the same elements -- air, water, fire or water. They've also spaced every fourth house apart.
Find the trines in your own chart, and contemplate what it could mean based on your personal experiences. I've highlighted here another example of a trine in Harry's chart.
With this favorable aspect, his emotional instincts and the manner in which he takes action will blend well together. The "negative" aspects found in the birth chart can point to areas of great challenge or difficulty. These are called squares and oppositions because of their relationship on the birth chart wheel. A square is three houses apart, and the opposition is directly opposite on the wheel. Harry's chart has an opposition between Pluto and the MC, which is indicated by the darker black line running top to bottom on the wheel.
His striving for his destiny as a leader and "warrior" with the MC in Aries can be at odds with Pluto's lessons about balance. And here I've highlighted a square between Harry's Jupiter and Uranus. With Jupiter in expansive Leo in the 1st coming up against the unexpected with Uranus in the house of home the 4th , this shines a light on how early upsets and cruelties undermined Harry's natural confidence.
What's a birth chart? A birth chart, also known as a natal chart, is a map of where all the major planets and astral bodies were located at the time you were born.

Putting these pieces of the puzzle together is a non-linear processThey've also spacedand each person finds a different path to understanding. Many people begin by reading the interpretations for the "combos" and aspects in astrology books.
Over time it begins to make sense and new layers of wisdom are revealed. In Harry's birth chart, there are both built-in gifts and challenges.
