Ok, so I've read different things. Usually, with Mercury at 16º Libra...to determine the aspect to my Uranus at 18º Sag, I'd start at Mercury and count clockwise to arrive at the sextile. I've read you should start in the slowing moving planet (in this case Uranus) and count clockwise to the faster one (Mercury)....but I also read you should count counter-clockwise.I mostly subscribe to EA...the only book I've actually read about it being the first Pluto book by JWG.In the School of Evolutionary Astrology forum, (on this page https://forum.schoolofevolutionaryastrology.com/index.php?topic=648.0) quoting something JWG wrote it's written :"Phases are determined by measuring the distance in degrees from the slower moving planet counterclockwise to the faster moving planet. "1 - I was just dming an astrologer on youtube who said we should start at the slower planet and go clockwise, which would make my Mercury/Uranus a LAST QUARTER sextile, which, up until now I always measured as a first quarter one. So what is the rule, really in EA?:)2 -I also use asteroids A LOT. Am I to treat them as always faster than the major planets? Is there any resource where I can see which asteroids are faster than others? For example, if I'm determining the phase between Persephone and Hephaestos ...I wouldn't know how to do it. (and yes, I find asteroids extremely important and valuable)3- The last question is...I have no idea where I've gotten that idea, but with the Mercury/Uranus aspect I learned to interpret the aspect as 'Mercury' being affected by Uranus.....so my communication and process of information bein uranian.....but in EA is Uranus considered to also being affected by Mercury? Up until now I always considered the "least powerful" (/faster) planet as the one being influenced by the larger (/slower) one.4- As an example, I've attached my own chart, and would like to know what kind of sesquiquadrate my Saturn is doing to my NN. Do we consider the NN stationary to determine the phase?
Thank you so much for the input! :) All the best. <3
