Orb

Because most aspects are seldom exact, astrologers use an orb of influence or allowable orb (stated as a specific number of degrees) within which certain aspects are considered effective. Generally, the smaller the orb (that is, the closer an aspect is to exact,) the stronger the influence. Astrologers differ on orbs, and usually it is decided by personal research.
