What do t-squares do? And how does it affect the planets that are involved in it?
T-Squares, in my opinion, are an essential part of determining cognitive thinking patterns in astrology.
They are characterized by being in the three modes: Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable, as well as several than don't fit in all three. They are characterized by the effect of their apex planet that focusses the impact of the Opposition.
They are also determined by the strength and friction of the combined opposition and two squares.
Do you have one?

AN INTRODUCTION TO ASPECTS AND CHART SHAPING IN ASTROLOGY http://www.skyscript.co.uk/aspects2.htmlWhat do t-squares do?
And how does it affect the planets that are involved in it?
Regarding t-squares: do t-squares involving the ASC or MC count? I've read opinions from both sides of the fence.
That's one way of looking at it. Just considering the planetary energies, I think of Neptune and Moon as very ephemeral, elusive energies whereas Mars is so action oriented. The opposition causes undefined lines, confusion, but also revelations. Mars is constantly pounding against these opposing but blending energies and for me, it creates a circular circuit, the frog in the blender type mix. It has been VERY challenging but I have become quite fond of it.I think that a few degrees is a very wide orb for an aspect from a transiting new or full moon.
Sounds an interesting t square.
