Aspecting at a hard angle, the square is most known for friction, conflict, and drama. A square is when two planets are three zodiac signs apart, or separated by roughly ninety degrees, falling within the same modality of Cardinal, Fixed, or Mutable. This can cause tension between the astrological points as they struggle to speak the same language with no differing perspective to help them compromise. Although this energy can feel blocked and frustrating, a square can be used productively. The pressure is like a boiling pot of water, forcing you to look at the issues to make changes. You always have a choice—you can face your challenges or ignore them until the pot boils over and can no longer be ignored.
