Chart Shapes: The Code to Interpretation

Wanda Sellar



No matter how knowledgeable we are about astrology, natal chart analysis can still present a challenge – however, understanding chart shapes could make all the difference. Chart Shapes: The Code to Interpretation pinpoints an effective route into the astrological labyrinth using a concept pioneered by Marc Edmund Jones then followed by Robert Jansky in the last century.

Each chart shape has its own central theme: a Locomotive shape has its starting point with the leading planet which may be in any house or sign, a See-Saw shape begins with the core opposition, a Wedge with the confining trine. Not all charts fit neatly into one of the idealised patterns, and those that take a little coaxing are still a revelation in interpretation. Sometimes it is the planet that stands outside the idealised shape that reveals the core of the personality.

With a multitude of worked case histories, this fascinating and accessible book is suitable for all levels.
