Oppositions are generally considered to be rather challenging, although in relationship Synastry charts this can be a sometimes be a case of polar opposites attracting to each other. Again, the degree of influence of …

The square is an intensive, very irritated angle of about 90°, give or take 10°. Squares are generally considered to be difficult and challenging.
