Sinister

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Sinister, from a Latin term meaning left (not evil), refers to one of the many ways of classifying the astrological aspects. The antonym is dexter (right). A sinister aspect occurs when a faster-moving planet makes an aspect with a slower-moving one that is located counterclockwise from it (to its left) in the zodiac. Even though astrologers from Claudius Ptolemy onward have regarded sinister and dexter aspects as having somewhat different influences, the differences are comparatively minor. In most general chart readings, this distinction is ignored.
