A Few Examples
of Planetary Configurations:
The Grand Cross is comprised of four 90 degree angles (squares)
with four equal lines. In other words, it's a square. And there
are (at least) four planets connected in the Grand Cross configuration.
Then, there's the T-square. A T-square looks like (and is) a Grand
Cross with a planet missing.
The Grand Trine (triangle) is comprised of three 120 degree angles
(trine) with three equal lines. It's called an equilateral triangle.
There are (at least) three planets connected to one another in the
A Kite is a Grand Trine with an extra planet attached to one of
the ends. Having the extra planet adds two sextiles and an opposition

in the Kite configuration. And yep – the Kite looks like a kite.
A Yod is a triangle with two 150 degree angles (quincunx) and one
60 degree angle (sextile). And the Yod has two equal sides. It's
an isosceles triangle. There are (at least) three planets connected
in this configuration. It's a little different from the others in
