Sextile

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

A sextile is an aspect of 60° between two points—e.g., between two planets—in an astrological chart. This aspect is traditionally regarded as beneficial, although, unlike the trine aspect, the potential contained in a sextile has to be developed. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as the aspect of opportunity.
