Scope: the range of the aspect of a given celestial body

Exact aspects exist for a very short period of time. However, the impact of the aspect becomes apparent if the constellation is not exact yet or existent anymore. The more exact an aspect or transit, the more powerful its impacts. Orbis marks the range of degrees where such impacts are already or still enforced.

Imagine that all celestial bodies have a beam of rays that have their greatest impact in case of certain symmetries. If the beam of rays emitted by two celestial bodies gets into contact, they are within the orbis, and the aspect is taken into consideration during the analysis.
