Note by A Milnes to Dryden's Character a chapter of The Life Of Dryden

The aspect of planets placed in the three angles of a trigon, in which position they were supposed to be of particularly benign influence. Cf.

Their planetary motions and aspects
In sextile, trine, and square and opposite
Of noxious efficacy.' — Milton, Paradise Lost, x. 657.
