Does it matter?
I was actually taught, years ago, that applying aspects were stronger than separating ones. That wisdom is still widely preached and perhaps widely accepted.
But at least in terms of transits -- movement going on in the sky in present-day time -- I have not found that to be the case. (Since I don't live inside the skin of other people, I haven't been able to do observations that suit me about the effects of applying versus separating aspects as they pertain to Natal Charts -- birth charts, but I'm inclined to believe the same logic I've discovered holds true there as well.)

More about Aspects in Astrology
What Are Aspects in Astrology? ---> What are aspects? ---> Aspects are the different angles planets form with one another as they move through the sky at their different speeds and in their different orbits. It is the aspects -- these angles -- planets make between themselves, either between planets in the sky or between planet positions in the sky when compared to the stationary planet positions in a Natal Chart -- which allow an astrologer to see and describe the way the energies they represent interact in a horoscope, and so in the character or evolution of the person or event being studied.
Major Aspects of the Moon ---> The Moon in its travels ---> The Moon, in its travels around the earth, cycles through all twelve signs of the Zodiac every twenty-eight to thirty days. It changes signs about every two and a half days. In each new sign, the Moon forms angles with the other planets in the sky, angles which are occasionally quite significant (called major aspects) and which mark the ebb and flow of both easy and irritating moments in everyday life.
* A Day with No Lunar Aspects -- Not quite one thing ... not quite another ---> First things first ---> To understand this article, you may need a little bit of background. First of all ... do you know about the Void-of-Course Moon? If so, great. Skip down and read on. If not, take a minute or two (honest, that's all you'll need) to read about it. However, you'll do yourself a favor if you really learn about the v/c Moon ... benefits way beyond the limits of this article. Start here:

What Do Sun Aspects Show? -- The Presence and Behavior of Your Inner Selves ---> You and your self-expression ---> All aspects to the Sun affect how the person, entity or event you're examining expresses itself ... and how it is perceived. If you have aspects to the Sun in your Natal Chart -- and chances are you do, an unaspected Sun is rare but not impossible -- it shows influences from your family of Inner Selves that affect your self expression. Planets that aspect your Sun shape your sense of who you are -- your self identity. Sun aspects show attitudes and interests that help or hinder your ambitions, how you use your will power ....
* Aspects of Venus ---> What does the condition of Venus tell you
about your connections to love and money? ---> Aspects to Venus give information about areas of life that are strongly influenced by social skills, partnership affiliations, the natives ability to form and use relationships, how he expresses love -- and what happens as a result of those feelings. They show channels which can make use of his diplomatic skills -- or be hindered by his lack of them. They show how he can use his aesthetic sensitivities, his sense of beauty and style, and his artistic interests to help him get along more easily in life.

No Lunar Aspects -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology September 11, 2019 No Lunar Aspects ---> First things first ---> There are days -- or long periods in a day -- when the Moon is not technically void-of-course, but it sure as heck feels like it!! Your motivation is shot. Your energy levels register near empty. You have a hard time concentrating. Your mind and focus just seem to drift every which way -- except where you'd really like them to stay. Your mood is kind of blah. Not really depressed -- but headed that way. Not real cheery either ... and it could take some work to push it there.
