When trying to understand an astrological aspect, I like to think in terms of doors and to what degree they are opened or closed.
The First Step: A Close Look at Transits – Is the Door Open, Closed, or Ajar?
Astrology is about energy—the energy you have on any given day to get things done. When you have the absolute best energy, clear and direct, it’s as if the door is wide open; and walking through it will feel effortless. On the other hand, when you have the absolute worst energy, muddled and confused, it’s as if the door is closed, and worse, sometimes even locked. And the energy needed to break down a locked door is much greater than the energy needed to waltz through an already opened one.
