*face palms*...how do you determine if a planet is neutral? if it's neutral, does that mean the planet has little overall effect on me? or does it still have an effect, just not on appearance?
Yeah, I saw those.
That is OK. I couldn't remember which was Uranus or Neptune at first - I kept getting those mixed up.
It is not the planets themselves that are neutral is the the aspects (or angles) between them. The planets always have a meaning. In general, the planets represent differnt parts of your psyche or personality ( ie. Venus = relationships, any kind not just love; and Mercury represents the mind etc etc).
Why and how you may demonstrate these planets in your life is answered by what sign they are in. For example, if you had Venus in Virgo - you may be looking for perfection or purity in your relationship because that is what the sign of Virgo is about (all that is needed to understand this to learn about the signs individually) and lastly, the House that the planets fall in represents the area of your life where you will see these parts of your personality be most important. Like Venus in Virgo, in the sixth house; the sixth house is the house of service (or work) so you having Venus in Virgo in the 6th house will be a strong influence in your work relationships.
Make sense? The aspects that are "neutral" that I mention just are "weak" (meaning not strong) aspects. They still have meaning but you may not notice them or they may not have any strong effects with the two planets they aspect.
The conjuction aspect is basically a "fusion" - two planets right on top of each other and when this happens, one does not function with out the other. Meaning one will effect the other - this is a a stronger aspect that can alter the way the planets in signs effect you in your houses.
This is why astrologers look for conjunctions and oppostion aspects when people are confused about how they feel, their lives etc...
