I wonder if someone could recommend some good reading material for understanding more about the T-squares, or perhaps list a website with references. I have all sorts of questions about this part of my chart and im really thankful for the knowledge I've received here, Im interested to know some more about T-squares and how the other planets can influence them such as trines, would sextiles to the planet at the tip of the triangle affect the T-square? or point to possible difficulties? or possible solutions? what smaller influences would the other planets have? in transit and in aspect to the planets in the T-square? what influence would the house and sign of the aspecting planets have on the T-square? for example im interested specifically in the Saturn trine to the tip planet of the T-square (Neptune) I have learned that saturn will be returning soon in my chart, IAs you can see I have a lot of questions :) and I really don't want to trouble people so I want to read up and learn abit more about them.

Many thanks

Also Im wondering if the north node and south node squared to a planet is the same kind of thing as the T-square? or is it just planets?

I need a book :)

Hey timbo, there's a great article by Carol Rushman describing T-Squares by modality:


technically, if you have a T-Square to a node, you will actually have a grand cross, formed by the other node. I would not consider this as acting the same as a grand cross with 4 planets, as I do not make heavy use of the nodes, but other astrologers may disagree.

Timbo, the more you can learn about all aspects of astrology (no pun intended), the more all aspects of your chart will come alive for you and make sense. Isthmus Nekoi has prepared a wonderful list of astrological resources -- here's a link: http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=15205

Nowadays, many good books exist with information about aspects -- especially Robert Hand's Horoscope Analysis and Sue Tompkins' Aspects in Astrology. Regarding the T-Square specifically, I would recommend Dynamics of Aspect Analysis by Bil (yes, Bil with one "l")Tierney and How to Handle your T-Square by Tracy Marks. I suspect that the last two are out-of-print, but I'm sure that you can find one or both through the many on-line sites selling used books, such as Amazon or http://www.abebooks.com. You might also check astrology bookstores such as http://www.astroamerica.com and http://www.astrologyetal.com.

Thankyou very much for your help, I've been searching a bit on the net and come back with some useful stuff, I saw the Tracey Marks book on T-Squares and considered getting it but I definately will now. They can be bought on amazon.uk so I shall try and get both of them.

I haven't read the article yet but I've already saved the page to read later :) but thanks for the reccomendations......Im already learning a great deal. Perfect thanks a lot guys
