- Moitié is a 15th century French word derived from the Latin medietas, meaning middle. The moiety is the central region of the planetary orb, upon entry of which two planets are said to be in 'application' of aspect, or as we say in modern astrology 'within orb'.

For a full explanation and diagram refer to the section 'Moiety of the Orb' in the article The Classical Origin and Traditional Use of Aspects.

For a quick reference on when planets are within moiety of orb refer to The Table to Show Orbs for Aspectual Contact.
