Reading the Chart
Part Three: Examples


In the first two articles of this series, I described some of the techniques that I use in examining a natal horoscope. The basic approach is to look at the chart as a whole prior to examination of the details. I talked about how I assign values to the Triplicities, Polarities, Quadruplicities, and House Residents. I discussed examination of the Lunation Cycle and the Temperament Types. I also discussed the possibility of a need for a relocated chart.

The best way to learn how to use these techniques is to follow an example. One of the published charts of President Bill Clinton will serve as our example. I have often found that public figures do not always reveal true birth data, but I believe that this chart is reasonably accurate. If you wish to erect the chart to follow along with me, use the following birth data: The date is August 19, 1946. At 8:51 AM CST in Hope, Arkansas. I use a geocentric latitude of 33N29'20" and a longitude of 93W35'29". I also intend to use a relocated chart for Bill Clinton at the White House. For the relocated chart, the birthtime changes to 9:51 AM EST and I use a geocentric latitude of 38N42'31" and a longitude of 77W02'13". I shall be using Placidus houses.

To make sure that you have the right charts, check to see if the GMT is 14:51:00 on both. Also check that the Midheaven of the natal chart is 5 degrees 59 minutes of Cancer, and the Midheaven of the relocated chart is 21 degrees and 20 minutes of Cancer. If you results are a few minutes different from mine, do not worry about it. This is a teaching exercise.

First, let us look at the Triplicity count for the natal chart. Give double weight to the Sun, the Moon, the Midheaven, and the Ascendant. I start at the Midheaven, look at the sign of the Midheaven, and then read the planets in house ten, house 11, house 12, and so on. Begin with the count for Fire.

Remember that we are using only the eight planets plus the Sun, Moon, Midheaven, and Ascendant. We are not counting Nodes, Parts, Asteroids, Comets, or TransNeptunians.

For Fire, I find a count of five, based on Saturn, Mercury, Pluto, and the Sun (two points) in Leo. For Earth, I find a count of two, based on the Moon (2) in Taurus.
For Air, I find a count of seven, based on Ascendant (2), Mars, Neptune, Venus, and Jupiter all in Libra, plus Uranus in Gemini.
For Water, I find a count of two, based on the Midheaven (2) in Cancer.
This adds up to sixteen and is correct.

For the polarities, we add the number of Fire and Earth signs for the Positive tally, and then add the Earth and Water signs for the Negative tally.

Five Fire and seven Air equals 12 for the Positive Polarity.
Two Earth and two Water equals 4 for the Negative Polarity.
Twelve plus four equals sixteen and is correct.

Next we will look at the Quadruplicities, using the same weighted count as described before. Start again at the Midheaven, and then examine the planets in house 10, house 11, house 12, and so on.

For Cardinal, I find a count of eight, based on the Midheaven (2) in Cancer, plus the Ascendant (2), Mars, Neptune, Venus, and Jupiter, all in Libra.
For Fixed, I find a count of seven, based on Saturn, Mercury, Pluto and the Sun (2) all in Leo, plus the Moon (2) in Taurus.
For Mutable, I find a count of one for Uranus in Gemini.
This adds up to sixteen, and is correct.

Let us notice at this point that the tallies here will be the same for Bill Clinton's relocation to the White House, because the signs at the Midheavens are both in Cancer, and the signs at the Ascendants are both in Libra. This does not happen all the time, and is quite unusual for a move covering half a continent.

The tallies for the Triplicities, Polarities, and Quadruplicities are the same for both charts, so let us analyze them now. The Polarity came to a total of 12 positive and 4 negative. This shows us a person who is always positive, active, and a self-starter.

The large tally in air (7) tells us that here is a person who is a communicator, and to whom relationships are very important. Add the fire (5) nature, and we are looking at the born salesman, whose communication skills (air) are fired up with the enthusiasm which is natural and comes easily. Such a person can usually sell anything to anybody.

Out of a possible count of 16, we find eight in Cardinal and seven in Fixed. Here is a man who is a self-starter, active and positive, who loves the challenge of a project (Cardinal). Once he has made up his mind, nobody can change it. His mother probably called him stubborn. He is usually concerned with ideas (Fixed).

The next item is an analysis of the occupancy of the planets in the houses. This and other topics in the analysis of the chart-as-a-whole will be discussed in the next article.
