Some of you may have questions as to the type of information which can be derived from an Astrological consultation. I’ve posted a sample chart to give a brief and general idea as to how information can be synthesized and transformed to meaning as to move toward providing a more comprehensive portrait of an individual:
When we look at this chart, we immediately notice the primarily southeastern hemispheric emphasis, which suggests this individuals orientation toward focus on the spiritual through self-awareness, as well as personal relationships and their connections with the world at large. The focus is on both personal and collective development.
One of the questions this birth chart produces may be:
“How can I, as a result of my individual development, and my connections with others,make a contribution to uplifting and inspiring humanity ?
This chart also indicates concerns related to disclosure and the receiving of love. There’s a risk/reward scenario suggested here. It’s suggested that this person’s friendships and group affiliations could benefit from self-revelation.
The Sagittarian archetype is highly pronounced in this chart, so this would mean that:
the type of fuel this person requires for optimal development (Sun), their self projection (Ascendant), how they need to think and communicate (Mercury) and relate (Venus) are all connected to what we know about the Archer:
Shooting bold, unrestricted and far reaching arrows of thought into the universe asking life’s big questions.
Exploring any avenue of intellectual inquiry which will provide a more panoramic, comprehensive and universal understanding of the world. Relating to others in a style which emphasizes shared personal growth and the expansion of consciousness.
These mental explorations may indeed be of a nature that’s considered unconventional and avant-garde by society, as well as deeply psychological in nature.
This is counterbalanced by a strong Cancer Moon, placed in its own sign, suggesting that the needs of the personality can be fulfilled through warmth, closeness, intimacy and emotional security.
The tendency here points to someone who’s nourished by a relationship which carries no doubts about the fact that they’re loved and also, who needs to hear it and witness open displays of it, through behavior and actions. The Moon’s square to Pluto outlines the intensification of these needs.
Furthermore, with the Moon at the Aries point [00’48 degrees Cancer], the potential for this person’s involvement in the larger world is to make an emotional connection with the public and have their sensitivity and intuition express in obvious and visible ways.
As displayed by the 11th house emphasis, the individuals’ lovability is tied up in themes of a Sagittarian nature. With Neptune as the midpoint between Mercury and Venus, there are high hopes and idealism that humanity’s love will be displayed toward them in this manner.
A brief synthesis of this chart would be:
This person needs to develop themselves through intellectual, spiritual and physical travel. Exploring fuels their vitality and life force, and there’s a powerful need to be loved for being that type of person in a manner which contains no insecurities.
The point of integration which needs to be pursued is that of balancing the freedoms which come with exploration of personal aspirations with the emotional requirements of human relationships- whether intimate partnerships or with the public.
However, the ultimate realization is revealed in the fact that true and lasting security resides within the self and can’t be found in another individual or a relationship.
Upon this discovery, any form of partnership is now viewed as more of an enhancement and less of an ultimate requirement.
This is an example of the type of information that can be relayed during an Astrological consultation. Of course, information can be interpreted in a multitude of ways and this is just a brief sample, but it’s definitely designed to illicit a dialogue between the Astrologer and client.
