Reading the Chart
Part Two: Chart-As-A-Whole


In the previous article in this series, I described the beginning steps to reading a chart?as?a?whole. In that article I emphasized counting the triplicities, the polarities, the quadruplicities, and house residents. I described the weighted counting that I do. I then reminded you to look at the chart?as?a?whole for the Temperament Type and for the Lunation Cycle. I provided references to my earlier articles on these last two subjects.

In the prior discussion about the distribution of planets in various houses, I used the terms angular, succedent, and cadent. In this article, I shall further describe these terms.

Traditionally, houses one, four, seven, and ten are known as the angular houses because they each start at the Ascendant, Nadir, Descendant, or Midheaven of the chart, the four angles. Give each planet 1 point, and give the Sun and the Moon 2 points each. The total will be 12, because we are not using the Ascendant or the Midheaven. If the person has the highest tally in angular houses, this person projects his personality and his ideas instinctively and automatically.

Houses two, five, eight, and 11 are known as the succedent houses, because they succeed or follow the angular houses. If the highest tally is in the succedent houses, the person whose chart you are reading is highly emotional. This person may not show emotionality on the outside, or to the public, but his feelings are strong.

Houses three, six, nine, and 12 are known as the cadent houses. Because they are located before the angular houses, some old?time astrologers used to say that the planets in these houses worked "behind the scenes." If the person whose chart you are reading has the highest tally in cadent houses, the modern astrologer would say that this is a person who is more mental, intellectual, reserved, and retiring. Such a person has a rich "inner life."

One might ask here about the various house systems: Placidus, Koch, Regiomantanis, Campanus, etc., and which should be used for the tally described above. My answer is to be consistent with the house system that you normally use, and which you will use later for the detailed examination of the horoscope.

In today's mobile society, it is not unusual to discover that the person whose chart you are analyzing lives far from the city where he was born. How many people do you know who live thousands of miles from where they were born? When you are looking for the natal promise of the horoscope, you read the natal chart, using the chart?as?a?whole techniques described above. When you are trying to provide assistance and understanding in the current milieu, you must relocate the person to the city where he lives, because he has a different horoscope there.

You erect the relocated chart and then read it "as?a?whole" to arrive at tallies for the triplicities, polarities, quadruplicities, and house residents. The tallies will probably be different because the Midheaven and Ascendant will probably be different. The distribution of planets in houses will probably have changed as well.

In the final article of this sequence, I shall examine the natal and relocated charts of one or more prominent people to illustrate all the principles described in this series on reading the chart?as?a?whole.
