Aspect orbs will always make for a fascinating topic of discussion. When I first started out (MANY solar returns ago
) I used very wide orbs for major aspects, although always considerably less for minor ones. As I progressed I tightened my orbs so that now anything over 5 degrees on a significant conjunction, opposition or square (such as one to the chart angles, Sun or Moon) gives me pause (I'm much happier with 3 degree orbs, especially for trines and sextiles), and anything over 1-1/2 degrees on a minor aspect even more so. There is also something to be said for different orbs for applying (strengthening) and separating (weakening) aspects. At a Rob Hand lecture back in 1985 he said that, for wide conjunctions in the 5-to-10 degree range, it is probably more effective to consider the mid-point between the planets as the key sensitive point rather than the individual planets, and that "indirect" aspects (that is, non-conjunctions) seem to work for this as well. This seems to make a lot of sense.
It appears to me that the orbs you cited are well outside my comfort zone.
