This is an example of a real person (whose name was clearly changed) and some of the information that I look at when assessing an individual’s chart. All the traditional variables, the patterns that emerge from the charts planetary aspects, and the strengths of the individual planets, signs and houses are all evaluated in a gestalt manner, in order to relate those parts to the whole individual.
The person, “Sally” (whose chart is shown below) was a brilliant pianist, a novelist, a watercolor artist and an amazing human being in general. She was a unique individual who can make virtually anyone feel comfortable and at home in her presence. As gracious as she was, she was also fiercely independent and iconoclastic; and would not hesitate to state a “rude truth” if she felt it necessary to do so.
