The Sextile is an aspect between two planets that are 60 degrees apart (give or take a few degrees of orb). The aspect is typically creative, easy-flowing and often indicates natural ability.
Sextile planets are typically two signs apart. The signs share the same polarity and have compatible elements (Fire and Air or Earth and Water).
Because the elements are not the same, it takes a certain amount of effort and ingenuity to bring them together constructively. Therefore, the sextile can indicate problem-solving ability and may suggest a talent for persuading or manipulating others.
