TECHNIQUES IN DELINEATING NATAL CHARTS

We are going to touch on various techniques used in delineating an Astrological birth chart. These are tools (which are not necessarily in any order of importance) used to find and understand the importance characteristics and psychological makeup inherent in a birth chart.


The Sun sign and its house placement play an important role in defining who we are on the inside. This placement deals with our core personality and usually holds great importance in determining who we are. It indicates our strengths along with the path we have chosen to pursue in life. It is often our drive and, along with the placement of Mars, will determine how aggressive we pursue our purpose and identify our needs.


The Moon sign and its house placement define our inner emotional response to the world. It defines our sensitivity, our compassion and our need for nurturing as well as our need to nurture others. It is our emotional response to the world and our reaction to life’s events on an emotional level. The Moon by sign and house also define where we can use these energies and tendencies and to what end they might result.


The Ascendant is often our initial reaction to life and the people we meet. It often differs greatly from our Sun sign in that it is how we portray ourselves to the world. It often defines who we are on the outside and may even describe our appearance. Look not only at this sign placement but also at the ruling planet’s position in the birth chart. For example, if your rising sign is Sagittarius, look to see where Jupiter is located and how it is aspected in the chart. This will help define more clearly how you relate to the world and what expression you utilize.


The Sun, Moon and Ascendant have a powerful influence in defining us as individuals. These three factors will go a long way in describing an individual and often lead the way to deciphering the birth chart. Make sure that you take into consideration the sign and house position but also take into consideration the aspects that the Sun, the Moon and the Ascendant are receiving. These will determine aptitude, perseverance and life attributes or deficiencies in the makeup of the individual.


You can look at patterns in the chart. This is the pattern that the planets are forming as far as location in the chart. There are several different patterns to take into consideration. Some of these would be the bucket pattern, the bowl pattern, the locomotive pattern and splash pattern. These help to characterize the personality in greater detail and each pattern differs significantly from one another.


You can look for hemispheric emphasis, along with if there is a Stellium found within the birth chart. The Stellium will emphasize a specific area of the chart and when a transiting or progressed planet is influencing these planetary positions, there will be an array of energy targeted at this house for an extended period of time, until the transit or progression is finished making its influence known.


We will continue delineating the chart in our next Astrology post in two days.
