Astrology Bytes - Episode 83: What's an orb?


Bite-sized astrology lessons for total astrology newbies.
Created by Theresa Reed, The Tarot Lady (psst…I am known for tarot but I’m also an astrology geek!).

Welcome to Astrology Bytes, the astrology podcast for people who want to learn astrology… but don’t have all day! Short, bite-sized astrology lessons.

Episode 83: What’s an orb?

An orb is the exactness of the degrees in an aspect. 

If the orb is tight – say an exact aspect, it’s powerful. For example, my Sun is 20º Gemini and my Mercury is 20º Mercury. That means this is an exact conjunction – and it’s potent. The Sun is power and Mercury is the mind so this amplifies my mental acuity – and ability to express myself. 

If the orb is wide – say 10 degrees or more, the energy isn’t as powerful. It may be barely felt. Learn more in this short lesson!
