What is the difference in effect between a sextile and a semi-sextile?

So i have quite a lot of sextiles in my natal chart, and also quite a lot of semi-sextiles, however i struggle to understand the difference between these two aspects- the name makes it sound like it is almost alike- but thinking about it- it is still a very different aspect, especially when taking in account the difference in sign-interaction and difference in acual literal degrees...

so my question is, what is the difference in outward effect between a semi sextile and a sextile? a real practical difference

for example say the difference between a mars placed in sagittarius- and a saturn placed in aquarius (a sextile) and a mars placed in sagittarius and a saturn placed in capricorn (semi-sextile) lets say the aspect is pretty exact and is happening between the 1-3 and 1-2 houses.

and also, because the name is clearly suggesting something that is partly or semi- and the semi-sextile is considered a minor aspect- is that truly so? i have for example found inconjuncts, or quincunxes, to be considered a minor aspect as well- but clearly from personal experience and research this is absolutely NOT the case and can be one of the major issues in a persons life- and also the issue that will give most benefit when worked upon

thank you

will commit if there is no commitment involved Sagittarius
