The movement of one planet toward another planet, house cusp, or sensitive point in approaching the formation of an aspect between them. Both planets may be direct, one direct and the other retrograde, or both retrograde.

The term "mutual application" is used when a planet traveling direct is applying to one that is retrograde, so that each planet is heading toward the other. The faster planet, regardless of direction of motion, "casts its rays" to aspect the slower one. Application is the opposite of Separation
