Platic Aspect

Astrological Dictionary

[Gk. platikos, having to do with width or breadth]. When an aspect between planets is in orb but not exact. Sometimes used of an aspect barely within allowable orb. Geddings takes it to mean a weak aspect, or one which is "wide of" orb, although this is not consistent with the traditional usage. In Ptolemy, a platic aspect between planets is synonomous with a zodiacal aspect, here meaning one that is based on their presence in signs possessing that aspect, as opposed to an aspect defined geometrically by degrees. Albiruni makes a similar distinction.
