Reading the Chart
Part Four: Examples (cont.)

In the previous article, we used the natal and the relocated charts of Bill Clinton as examples for examining the chart?as?a?whole. We counted and made tallies of the Triplicities, the Polarities, and the Quadruplicities. We found his natal chart to be heavily weighted in both Air and Fire, as well as heavily weighted in Cardinal and Fixed. The Positive Polarity far exceeded the Negative Polarity. All of these counts did not change between the natal and relocated charts.

The next step in examining the chart?as?a?whole is to examine both charts for the occupancy of the houses. The occupancy of houses obviously does not include a count for the Midheaven or the Ascendant, so the weighted tally should add up to 12. For Bill Clinton's natal chart, the count is as follows:

For Angular houses, I find a count of six, based on Saturn and Mercury in house ten, plus Mars, Neptune, Venus, and Jupiter in house one.
For Succedent houses, I find a count of five, based on Pluto and the Sun (2) in house eleven, plus the Moon (2) in house eight.
For Cadent houses, I find a count of one, based on Uranus in the ninth house.

The distribution of planets in houses changes for the chart relocated to the White House:

For Angular houses, I find a count of four, based on Saturn, Mercury, and Pluto in the tenth house, plus Jupiter in the first house.
For Succedent houses, I find a count of four, based on the Sun (2) in the eleventh house, plus the Moon (2) in the eighth house.
For Cadent houses, I find a count of four, based on Mars, Neptune, and Venus in the twelfth house, plus Uranus in the ninth house.

Each of these distributions adds up to 12 and is correct.

From the analysis of the distribution of planets in the natal chart, we find a man who easily gets his personality and ideas across to other people (Angular=6). He is more emotional than he would like other people to know (Succedent=5). This is not a deep?thinking philosopher, but rather a man of action and emotion. (Cadent=1).

Bill Clinton's move to the White House also moved his planets. His relocated chart has a count of four in each of the three categories. Thus, his personality is more rounded and more thoughtful than in his natal chart.

To look for the Temperament Type, according to Marc Edmund Jones, we again use only the planets without regard for Midheaven or Ascendant. Therefore, the natal and the relocated horoscopes will yield the same analysis. The Bowl pattern does not quite fit Bill Clinton's chart because there is not an opposition, and the planets are not evenly distributed. I would, however, call his chart a cross between a bowl, which tells us how self?contained he is, and what I call number eight: the unclassifiable. The unclassifiable temperament type usually describes a person who is original, unique, and individualistic. For more information about the Temperament Types, see the articles that I have written for Astronet. They can be found in the Learning Center.

Next, let us look for the Lunation Cycle, as described by Dane Rudhyar, in Bill Clinton's horoscope. We are concerned only with the relationship between the Sun and the Moon, so relocation is not a factor. Bill Clinton's Sun is at 26 degrees and zero minutes of Leo; his Moon is at 20 degrees and 18 minutes of Taurus. The distance between them, counting from the Sun, is 264 degrees and 18 minutes. This distance describes a waning Moon person, someone who is a seeker of explanations and definitions and meanings. This distance also puts the Moon into the sixth eighth of the cycle, describing a person who always wants to show what he knows or has learned. He will also project his ideas and beliefs, rather than himself.

The distance between the Sun and the Moon in Bill Clinton's horoscope places the Part of Fortune in the ninth house of the natal and relocated charts. The person with the Part of Fortune in the ninth house is one who can find his fortune far from home. His labors are usually mental, and he finds expression through travel, education, philosophy, publishing, or the legal system. For more information on the Lunation Cycle and the Part of Fortune, see the articles that I have written for Astronet. They can be found in the Learning Center.

Bill Clinton's horoscope has no retrograde planets. Mercury, which had been retrograde until the week before Clinton was born, is in its shadow and still fairly slow in motion. This would indicate an excellent mind and high intelligence. (See my articles on Retrograde Planets in the Learning Center here at Astronet.) When a person has zero retrograde planets, we see a great deal of perseverance. John McCormick found an unexpectedly high number of United States Presidents had zero retrograde planets. I guess that the road to the Presidency requires a great deal of perseverance.

So, before we even look at the details of this horoscope, we can see already that we are dealing with a person to whom relationships and communication are important; with a person who can bring enthusiasm to his projects; with a person who is individualistic and original; with a person who will find his fortune far from home. We are dealing with a person who strongly believes in his ideas, and who cannot be swayed from his course.

It is after I have examined all these factors in the chart?as?a?whole that I begin to look at the details of a horoscope. Much more will be learned from examining the details of a horoscope. That would be the next step. For now, you know how I read the chart?as?a?whole.
