 Aspects between planets

 When you were born, if there were two planets either 0, 45, 90, 135 or 180*  from each other, by longitude, then vibrations are set up between the planets, a little bit like radio waves, we can't see them but they have a tremendous effect on life on Earth and explain how and why you behave the way you do. *These are the hard aspects which make things happen. The soft aspects are 30 and 60.  J
