Let’s dive into the Top-10 most challenging aspects in astrology and recommended essential oils for each aspect:
Saturn conjunct Neptune
This aspect can be quite challenging because it’s difficult to find a balance between the opposing energies of restriction, structure, discipline (Saturn) and spirituality, imagination, creativity (Neptune). This can lead to confusion, indecision, struggle, lack of focus, and direction.
Essential oils recommended: Lemon, Peppermint.
Sun opposite Pluto
This aspect can cause emotional extremes and power struggles, leading to emotional intensity, stubbornness, and difficulty in creating healthy boundaries. It’s important to find a balance between personal desires and those of others to maintain healthy relationships.
Essential oils recommended: Ylang Ylang, Vetiver.
Uranus opposite Pluto
This aspect can create conflicting desires, impulses, and agendas within an individual’s psyche, leading to turmoil and disruption in life. It can provoke power struggles between individuals and create a great source of growth.
Essential oils recommended: Neroli, Roman Chamomile.
Jupiter opposite Saturn
This aspect can create difficulty in finding a balance between optimism, growth (Jupiter), and realistic focus on structures, pessimism, and limitation (Saturn). It can be challenging to make decisions or changes in life and working relationships.
Essential oils recommended: Lemongrass, Bergamot, Green Mandarin.
Mercury opposite Jupiter
This aspect can lead to talking too much, making grandiose claims, lack of follow-through, overconfidence, and difficulty in managing large amounts of information. It can be challenging to make realistic and achievable decisions.
Essential oils recommended: Lemon, Peppermint.
Mercury opposite Uranus
This aspect can leave one feeling frustrated or pulled in two different directions between their need for structure and spontaneity. Unexpected changes or sudden revelations can disrupt the status quo, and it can be challenging to find comfort in the chaos.
Essential oils recommended: Tangerine, Melissa, Basil.
Mars square Uranus
This aspect often results in sudden and unpredictable upheavals, leading to impatience and frustration due to not being able to quickly achieve the desired outcome. It can give a person the energy and courage to break through obstacles and make powerful changes in their lives.
Essential oils recommended: Geranium, Roman Chamomile.
Venus square Neptune
This aspect can create illusions and delusions that are difficult to distinguish from reality, leading to confusion, unfulfilled expectations, and disappointment. It can make one overly sensitive and prone to taking things too personally.
Essential oils recommended: Clove, Ginger.
Venus square Saturn
This aspect creates tension between the desire for pleasure and satisfaction in relationships (Venus) and the need for security and structure in relationships (Saturn). It can lead to controlling behavior in certain relationships, making it challenging to build open and trusting environments. It can also make it harder to find gratification in relationships and lead to difficulty accepting love or pleasure. Consequently, it can lead to clinginess, fear of commitment, and difficulty setting healthy boundaries in relationships.
Essential oils recommended: Eucalyptus, Ylang Ylang, and Cilantro.
Sun square Mars
This aspect can manifest as an internal battle between feelings of aggression and passive behaviours, or as a push and pull between the individual’s personal determination and the need to work hard and cooperate with others. It can also involve a fear of confrontation within oneself, leading to uncertain and unsteady behaviour. At its worst, Sun square Mars can manifest as anger, impulsiveness or recklessness, or an inability to attend to one’s internal needs adequately.
Essential Oils recommended: Lavender, Bergamot
