      Squares and oppositions by far outnumbering any 'soft' aspects to a planet. It can create difficulties in exprsing the energies of the planet.

      I don't like that word 'afflicted' though. It sounds like you have some kind of Medieval disease or pathology if using it of someone, usually who appears to be displaying the negative characteristics of a particular planet in ways we personally may not like. It also smacks a little too muchof the idea of being in the helples grip of a diabolical fate you cannot change.

      So I would rather eschew the word.

      Nevertheless though, a chart with a lot of hard aspects does not necessarily make for an easy life, 'aflictions can be tough and maybe that is something that is not always something to be sugarcoated in any kind of reading, if the person being read for seems to have undue expectations of rose gardens without troubles.

    It is easy to estimate when a planet is afflicted by 90 or 180 degree. In the case of Venus, Moon and Pluto it is less likely that the affliction takes place as shown by the program, since these objects roam very far from the ecliptic. The same goes for dwarf planets, comets and centaurs. Try to discard any orb and concentrate on the angular aspect, preferably conjunction. Do not fear and just calmly consider the challenge. If one planet represents e.g. authority and the other stands for you, economize the clash, and so on. Try using (with time) Simon Zev ben ha-Levi (spelt something like this) Caballistic (holistic?) approach.
