Aspect at English => English (Websters 1913) Of Explained:

Aspect \As"pect\, n. (A["e]ronautics)
A view of a plane from a given direction, usually from above;
more exactly, the manner of presentation of a plane to a
fluid through which it is moving or to a current. If an
immersed plane meets a current of fluid long side foremost,
or in broadside aspect, it sustains more pressure than when
placed short side foremost. Hence, long narrow wings are more
effective than short broad ones of the same area.

Aspect \As"pect\, n. [L. aspectus, fr. aspicere, aspectum, to
look at; ad + spicere, specere, to look, akin to E. spy.]

which enables one to look in a particular direction;
position in relation to the points of the compass; as, a

5. Prospect; outlook. [Obs.]

This town affords a good aspect toward the hill from
whence we descended. --Evelyn.

6. (Astrol.) The situation of planets or stars with respect
to one another, or the angle formed by the rays of light
proceeding from them and meeting at the eye; the joint
look of planets or stars upon each other or upon the
earth. --Milton.

Note: The aspects which two planets can assume are five;
sextile, ?, when the planets are 60[deg] apart;
quartile, or quadrate, ?, when their distance is
90[deg] or the quarter of a circle; trine, ?, when the
distance is 120[deg]; opposition, ?, when the distance
is 180[deg], or half a circle; and conjunction, ?, when
they are in the same degree. Astrology taught that the
aspects of the planets exerted an influence on human
affairs, in some situations for good and in others for
