Mythologically speaking, Thor’s Hammer Mjölnir was one of the most powerful weapons ever crafted, forged by dwarves and gifted to God of Thunder, Thor.
Regular listeners will be aware of the frequency in which I talk about Marvel films, and for a long time I crushed hard on Chris Hemsworth! I even wrote an article about him for Star Sign Style!
Mjölnir is never too far to be drawn into Thor’s hands and he can use it to defeat his enemies as well as holding on to it and willing it to carry him from destination to destination. Only the worthy can yield the hammer.
Astrologically speaking, Thor’s Hammer is another triangular aspect pattern associated with the square, and considered an analytical aspect chart shape as it forces us into a ‘diagnostic’ problem solving perspective.
It’s not one of the more commonly known aspect patterns, but if you have one you’ll probably beware of the challenges which come from this dynamic configuration which seem to trigger a total change of direction in life.
According to AstroWiki, children with this aspect tend to be very hard to discipline and carry this personality trait into their adult lives as challengers of the status-quo.
This can give rise to Thor’s Hammer individuals being subject to criticism, most likely because they’re independent nature causes them not to do as they’re told!
This pattern is formed of two planets sitting at a 90° square to each other completed by a third planet which sits at a sesquiquadrates (a.k.a. Sesquisquare) 135° from each side of the square.
As the orb for a sesquiquadrate is no greater than 2°, it’s a rather precise aspect which when formed can have quite a powerful influence over the natal chart.
As these are all hard aspects, they create a sense of challenge to live with. The sesquiquadrate is a constantly uncomfortable aspect and the planet sitting at the apex point of this triangle which is the subject of both 135° aspects make this an unstable and sensitive point. When this is triggered by transit the instability of this planet can become obvious to the native.
This aspect pattern can indicate an adventurousness which forces a totally new path to be roamed rather than the tidy path that’s been carved out by others before you.
