Chart Interpretation: The Dispositor Tree

In this chart, there are two dispositor trees. Both are mutual reception trees. This is because there are no planets in their own rulership.

Having two dispositor trees in a chart indicates that there may be two sides to the person.

Mercury and Venus are in mutual reception. This means that Mercury is in Libra which is Venus is sign and Venus is in Virgo which is Mercury sign.

  

Mercury

There are no further planets below Mercury, as there are no planets in Gemini or Virgo.

Background

In early 2024 I had the idea to offer online chart interpretations. These would be for listeners of our podcast.

The online astrology reading is not a face-to-face consultation, but it is an interpretaion that is discussed on the podcast or perhaps on Youtube. I considered inviting Arwynne to join in the conversation on some of them and she was excited to chim in on this, the first online astrology reading. I am happy that Arwynne joined me for the interpretation on the podcast.

Also please note that there was so much interest in the Online Astrology Readings that there is an 8 month waitlist because we need to catch up with all the readings already requested.

 

 

Chart Details

Birth City

When starting any chart reading you need the birth details. Taurpio’s was born at 6:28 pm, on the 28th April 1983, in Wellington, New Zealand.

 

Current City

Because I will look at the transits, I asked where she was living now and it turns out that she now resides in Perth, Australia.

Ascendant Aspects

Ascendant Neutral Aspects

The Ascendant is conjoined the Moon in fall in Scorpio and in the sensitive Ascendant Gauquelin sector.

Ascendant Hard Aspects

The Ascendant is opposite Mercury and Chiron both in Taurus in the 6th house.

Chart Ruler Complex: Mars

Dispositor Tree

Dispositor trees are another way to visualize the chart. This chart has two dispositor trees. The first is a Planet in Sign Tree, the Jupiter one, and the second is the Mutual Reception Tree with Mercury and Venus.

See the Dispositor Tree diagram further down.

 

Planet is Sign: Dispositor Tree

Jupiter is in its own sign of Sagittarius and so is well placed on the top line. Below Jupiter is Uranus and Neptune in Sagittarius. Jupiter disposes both Uranus and Neptune.

 

Mutual Reception Dispositor Tree

The two planets in mutual reception are Mercury and Venus. Mercury is in Venus’ sign of Taurus and Venus is in Mercury’s sign of Gemini. This means that Mercury and Venus are in mutual reception and have equal status in the dispositor tree. They go on the top line.

Below Venus is Chiron, Mars and the Sun in Taurus and Pluto in Libra. Venus disposes Chiron, Mars and the Sun. Below Mars is the Moon and Saturn in Scorpio. Mars disposes the Moon and Saturn. There are no planets below Mercury because there are no other planets other than Venus in either of Mercury’s signs Gemini and Virgo.

Links and Aspects

I always note any links (the arrows) that are also aspects in the chart. In this chart Jupiter is linked to Uranus and there is a conjunction between the two. The Moon and Mars are linked in the tree and they are in opposition to each other as well. The aspected links are maked in red.

Chart Rulers

I always highlight the chart rulers in a dispositor tree and in this chart the two chart rulers are Mars and Scorpio which are highlighted in yellow.

Taurpio-dispositor-tree-diagram

Main Comments from Taurpio

These are the main comments and question that Taurpio wanted us to focus on. Arwynne and I can’t cover everything in a 30 minute podcast, so we did what we could.

  

Reading Special Focus?

“How to make the best of the delightful pluto square pluto transit I’m going through. Somewhat challenging.”

Your Favourite Starzology Astrology Podcast Episodes?

“I love them all. I find yourself and Arwynne super engaging. I really enjoy the planets through the signs, also when you talk about generational transits i.e Chiron return. Also enjoyed the Oriental planet, mine’s Neptune.”

Additionally…

“I feel like I have a lot of polarity in my chart, very fixed energy of ♉️ and ♏️. Also interested to hear about the axis of the 6th and 12th houses.”

Forecasting: Transits recent Past

Pluto square Pluto

This transformative aspects which was in place for the past two years has finally cleared. Taurpio specifically asked about this aspect and we discuss in more in the podcast episode.

 

Forecasting: Transits Upcoming

Pluto square Saturn

Pluto is squaring Saturn now and will do so another two times during the course of 2024. This is marked in orange on the Dispositor Tree.

 

Taurpio-natal-transit-bi-wheel

Graphic Ephemeris

Graphic Ephemeris Defaults

I always set my Graphic Ephemeris defaults as follows:

  

  • 45 degrees.
  • Eighth harmonic aspects.
  • Two years.
  • Start six months ago.
  • Go ahead for 18 months.
taurpio-graphic-ephemeris

Graphic Ephemeris: What to Add

Once I have the Graphic Ephemeris printed out, I begin to add extra forecasting details. These other forecasting techniques are great at underlying what has already been brought forward in the transits.

Graphic Ephemeris: Eclipses

I look for lunar and solar eclipses for the next 12 months. I add any eclipses that conjoin the natal chart planets or points.

Graphic Ephemeris: Secondary Progressions

For the secondary progressions, I add any secondary progressed planet that changes of sign or house in teh next year. Additionally I add any secondary progressed planet of angle that conjoins a natal planet or points.

Graphic Ephemeris: Solar Arc Directions

I add the Solar arc directed planet changes of sign or house. I also add any Solar arc directed planets that conjoin a natal plants or point. See more on this later.

Solar Return Chart

The solar return chart can standalone and be interpreted by itself. This is another direct forecasting technique that I use after transits and eclipses. I always cast the solar return chart for the place they are at on their birthday.

With a solar retrun chart I look for:

 

  • The Solar Return Sun’s house.
  • The Solar Return Sun’s aspects.
  • Solar return ascendant in the natal chart.

You can continue on and interpret the whole chart but remember that is is the Sun that is the basis of this chart and therefore the Sun in the solar return chart is the most important.

If you want to loo for love and money then cast a Venus return chart and interpret that.

Taurpio-solar-return-chart

Secondary Progressions

With secondary progressions I cast the secondary progressed chart but mainly look at the bi-wheel and not the standalone secondary progressed chart.

When using bi-wheels I alwasy put the natal chart in the center as that is what everything else is based on. The person is the topic and the secondary progressed planets will affect the natal chart from the outside in to the natal cahrt or the core of the person.

The bi-wheel has the natal chart in the center and the secondary progressed chart on the outside.

 

What to Look for in Secondary Progressions

The three main secondary progressions that I am looking for are:

 

  • Secondary progressed Moon phase and when is the next phase change.
  • Secondary progressed planets or points changing natal sign.
  • Secondary progressed planets or points changing natal house.
  • Secondary progressed planets or points conjoining natal planets.

 

Personally, I don’t often consider other secondary progressed aspects unless I’m into the deeper third, fourth or fifth sessions with my client.

Taurpio-bi-wheel-natal-and-secondary-progression

Solar Arc Directions

With solar arc directions I cast the solar arc directed chart but only look at the bi-wheel and not the standalone solar arc directed chart.

When using bi-wheels I always put the natal chart in the center as that is what everything else is based on. The person is the topic and the solar arc directed planets will affect the natal chart from the outside in to the natal chart or the core of the person.

The bi-wheel shown below has the natal chart in the center and the solar arc directed chart on the outside.

 

What to Look for in Solar Arc Directions

The three main secondary progressions that I am looking for are:

 

  • Directed planets or points changing natal sign.
  • Directed planets or points changing natal house.
  • Directed planets or points conjoining natal planets.

 

Personally, I don’t often look at other solar arc directed aspects, like squares and oppositions, unless I’m into the deeper third, fourth or fifth sessions with my client.

Conclusion

Chart Overview

In this post I have highlighted the important factors in this chart. I would urge you to develop your chart reading skills by working through the post from top to bottom and concentrate on the chart details that I have brought forward for consideration. Yes, there is much more to discuss about this chart, but those bits can be left for another day.

I want to inspire you, an Aspiring Astrologer, to get better at chart reading by focussing in on what really matters in a chart and leaving the lighter signifiers for another day.

I think it is better to teach someone how to fish and not give them a fish. So to relate that to chart interpretation, “It is better to teach you how to interpret a chart than to do it for you.” This is why I have not provided thorough interpretations in this question because you need to do it for yourself.

 

Chart Interpretation Done For You

However, if you requested a full chart consultation from me, then I would give you all the information surrounding the placements in the chart and the full forecast prediction.

 

Thanks

I want to thank Taurpio for sending in her questions and especially for listening to our podcast in the first place. This post answers our podcast listener Taurpio’s questiions. It is heartening to know that we have listener’s from as far away as Perth, Western Australia in our audience. This shows the power of podcasting.

We appreciate you.

Bo’s Natal Chart Interpretation

In the first podcast episode, Alison and Arwynne go through a new chart interpretation step by step and extract the most important planets and signifiers. This is the way professional astrologers begin their chart readings.

 

Listen now >>> Bo’s Natal Chart Interpretation Prep

 

The Duality of Pisces

In the second podcast episode Arwynne welcomes Bo. This is a wide-ranging discussion on the most complex and hard-to-define sign of all. Pisces might also might be the most misunderstood and maligned sign in the zodiac. This episode is an illuminating deep dive for anyone struggling to pin down what the deepest of the water signs is all about. We explore the complexities, contradictions, dreams, intuitions, addictions, ambitions and sacrifices that make this sign so unique, and why we would all benefit from understanding the oceanic energies of Pisces a little better.

   

 

Chart Details

Bo’s natal chart details as given are as follows:

  • 9:32 am, January 22nd, 1988, Ness City, Kansas, USA.

This birth data is rated “AA” on the Rodden Rating as the time (9:32 am) is recorded on his actual birth certificate in hand.

 

Chart Calculation Defaults

We are using standard Western astrological defaults including:

  • The Tropical zodiac.
  • The Placidus house system.
  • The True Node.

This chart is calculated with Astro Gold.

 

Standard Orbs

Our standard natal orbs for both applying and separating aspects are:

  • 8° for conjunctions, oppositions, trines and squares.
  • 4° for sextiles.
  • 2° for semi-sextiles, semi-squares, sesquiquadrates and quincunxes.
  • 1° for quintiles, biquintiles, parallels and contra-parallels.

 

Begin Gathering the Information

This is how to approach a chart interpretation using the method I’ve been using for years. The aim is to get all the relevant information onto one page to start with.

 

Bos-birth-chart

Step 1: Balances

The balances refer to the polarity, elements, modes, hemispheres, quadrants, triple divisions, signs and houses. Only count the seven visible planets.

Polarity

In this chart the active polarity has five and the passive polarity has two planets. This makes the active polarity strong. People who are strong in the Active polarity are positive and eject energy into the world by their thoughts and actions.

 

Element

Now let’s consider the elements. In this chart there are three planets in Fire, Earth has no planets, Air has two planets and Water has two planets. This makes Fire slightly stronger than the other elements. Technically, for an element to be strong it must have two more planets than the next best element, which fire doesn’t. It only has one more planet than the next best elements which are Air and Water. Strong fire people are inspirational and will inspire others as well.

Explore more >>> Astrological Elements

Explore more >>> The Elements and Herbs

 

Mode

Turning to the modes. In this chart. Cardinal has one planet fixed has two planets and Mutable has four planets. This makes the Mutable mode strong with four planets. For a mode to be strong it technically must have two more planets than the next best mode. In this case the next best mode is Fire with two planets therefore Mutable is strong. People who are strong Mutable types are amenable to change.

 

Hemispheres

Of the four hemispheres, the Northern hemisphere has three planets, the Southern hemisphere has four planets, the Eastern hemisphere has six planets, and the Western hemisphere has one planet. This makes the Eastern hemisphere strong with six planets. People with a strong Eastern hemisphere. Have a great focus on their lives and what they are doing.

Hemisphere Ruler

The Eastern hemisphere ruler is Jupiter (as Sagittarius is on the MC). Jupiter is in its own hemisphere (Eastern) so this make Jupiter a focus planet for us to note.

Quadrants

Considering the quadrants. The first quadrant has three planets. The second quadrant has zero planets. The third quadrant has one planet. And the 4th quadrant has three planets. Because the 1st and the 4th quadrants have equal amount of planet. There is no strength in quadrants here.

 

Triple Division

Moving on to the triple divisions. The first triple division has three planets. The second triple division contains zero planets, and the third triple division has four planets. This makes the third triple division slightly stronger. However, technically, for a division to be strong it needs to have two more planets than the next best triple division, which the third division doesn’t. That’s why the third division just getting the “slightly stronger” label. The third Triple division is the “Them” division, where the focus is on what’s going on in the world.

Sign Emphasis

The sign with the most planets is Sagittarius. Therefore, the sign of The Archer, Sagittarius, is emphasised.

 

House Emphasis

There is no house with more than two planets thus no house emphasis.

Step 2: Ascendant Complex

Ascendant Sign

The Ascendant sign is Pisces. This makes the chart ruler the greatest planet of all, Jupiter.

First House Planets

The planets in the first house are Venus in Pisces and the Moon in Pisces. We also note that the north node is in the first house in Pisces as well.

Aspects to the Ascendant

Looking at aspects to the Ascendant, and we have Venus conjoined the ascendant and Mars is square the ascendant.

Step 3: Chart Ruler Complex

Chart Ruling Planet

The chart ruler is Jupiter because Pisces is on the Ascendant and Jupiter rules Pisces.

Ruler’s Sign

Jupiter is in Aries. Note that Jupiter is in mutual reception with Mars in Sagittarius.

Ruler’s House

Jupiter is in the second house.

Ruler’s Aspects

Jupiter is conjoined the Part of Fortune and Eris. It receives sextiles from Mercury and Chiron, and trines from Saturn and Uranus. Note that Jupiter only has soft aspects and therefore is unafflicted. Very nice.

Step 4: Luminaries

The Sun

Sun’s Sign

The Sun is in Aquarius which is in detriment as it is in the sign opposite its rulership sign of Leo, so it gets a score of -5 in Essential Dignity.

Sun’s House

The Sun is in the 12th house.

Sun’s Aspects

The Sun is unaspected as it does not receive a Ptolemaic aspect from another planet. However, the Sun does receive a lesser-used aspect, the bi-quintile, from Chiron. Additionally, the Sun is trine the South Node. Even though the Sun receives two aspects, it is technically considered “Unaspected” because the Sun does not receive a Ptolemaic aspect from another planet.

Luminaries: The Moon

Moon’s Sign

The Moon is in Pisces.

Moon’s House

The Moon is in the first house. Well placed in an angular house.

Moon’s Aspects

The Moon is conjoined the North Node and trine Pluto. The Moon is quintile Neptune. The Moon’s hard aspects are squares from Saturn and Chiron. The Moon is the focal planet in the T-square. The Moon receives an opposition from the South Node. The Moon is opposition and contra-parallel the Vertex. This makes the opposition to the Vertex a double whammy opposition and is therefore a more significant aspect.

The lunar phase is Crescent.

Part 6: Major Aspects Pattern

T-Square

There is only one Major Aspect Pattern which is a T-square. The T-square composes of Saturn in Sagittarius opposition Chiron in Gemini, and both are square the Moon in Pisces. The Moon is the focal planet of this T-square. The energy of Saturn and Chiron will be channelled and often expressed through the Moon. This is a mutable T-square as all the planets are in mutable signs. This T-square can be referred to as a “Moon mutable T-square.”

Featured Chart: Gary Vaynerchuk – Businessman, Documenter

Featured Chart: Gary Vaynerchuk – Businessman, Documenter

by Alison Price

Chart Details

Born on November 14, 1975, in Mahilyov, Belarus. Time unknown.

Technicalities

There is no birth time so I have cast the noon chart because that brings the margin of error down to 12 hours. This means you have to dismiss the ascendant, Midheaven and houses. What is left is correct which are the planets, signs and the aspects.

The Moon does change signs that day so if Gary was born in the morning he will have a Pisces Moon and if in the afternoon an Aries Moon.

If he was born in the morning the Moon T-square would not be in effect and if in the afternoon the Moon T-square would be stronger and in closer orb.


Balances

Polarity, elements and modes

There is no earth and this indicates he may take a while to find his footing. he will likely surround himself with earthy types or strong Taurus, Virgo or Capricorns.

There are no mutable signs represented unless the Moon was in Pisces. At this stage it is difficult to say for sure.The strong cardinal mode suggests he does his own thing as a pioneer and rarely worries about what others think. he will lead from the front and if you choose to fillow he will be happy. There is not much room for compromise to suit you but when he feels he needs to make adjustments to his life or what he is doign he will change course and you need to keep up.

Identity

With his Sun in Scorpio it is in a power sign and indicates that he faces the haters and buries them. There is not much room for non-believers and he does not want to convert you, you have to believe in him for there to be a dialogue.

Moon in the morning Pisces in the afternoon Moon in Aries.

If Moon in Aries then there is a strong mutual reception between the Moon in Aries and

Mars in Cancer

Mercury oriental this is quite a common placement for Mercury and does indicate a talker. People like Gary have a message and can bang on or almost beat a drum. his voice is powerful and his choice of words is not always suitable for delicate ears. Even though he uses strong language it is never derogatory, vulgar or dismissive of others.

Money

Venus conjoined Pluto is one indicator of a millionaire.  Venus in Libra is strong and as the final dispositor and makes him likeable and easy to love.

Family

If his Moon is in Pisces (which I rather suspect) it makes him protect his wife from perceived publicity and intrusion. She is never on display or brought forward as a prop for his life.

Much the same goes for his mother although we do get glimpses of her early teaching about truth and her expectations. That she would not praise him for doing nothing in particular but only for when he did things for which she approved. His mother likely instilled many values he still refers to today and this role may have been picked up and continues by his wife. A woman is probably  holding up a mirror of accountability for him.

He revers his father shown by the Saturn trine Neptune and took his father’s small wine shop (again Saturn trine Neptune) and made it a prosperous business.

Gary knows where he comes from, how far he has come and he may see how much further there is ahead.

Genius and Creativity

His genius is shown through the aspects of the fifth harmonic or in other words any quintiles or bi-quintiles

Two strong planets are in this relationship the Sun is bi-quintile Jupiter which takes the credit for his positive buoyant outlook. This combination is double inspirational as they are the two fire planets.

Promotion is used to further his identity and place himself front and centre. He is not shy although there may be some natural stage fright at times.

He is proud of his journey. The path he takes satisfies his inner core and heart. He promotes himself and others from this place.

Charisma

Gary uses his inbuilt charisma to grow. He enjoys being on the stage and laps up his audience.

Jupiter trines Neptune which shows the early promotion of the Wine Library which was the first public presentation on Youtube that started it al. Both of these planets are the Pisces rulers who work together in an easy way.

Neptune

Neptune rules film and video and he uses it in a powerful way. To promote (Jupiter) his process and document his journey.

Unaspected Mercury

Gary’s unaspected Mercury may be a clue to why he is so prolific in his speaking and the easy way he shares his thoughts on how to do things.

His method of documenting his journey to share with others (in the Daily Vee and other productions) as an inspiration is driven by the unfettered state of his Mercury which rules speaking, writing, orating and off-the-cuff advice giving.

We have often seen him in the after-chat in a dark street of a big city speaking directly to the people. His people. This is his favoured way to share his message and reach his audience.

He sees life through the “thought, word and deed” method and believes it as well. His currency is his message as his unaspected Mercury shows in its role as the messenger of the Gods.

Featured Chart: Elon Musk – Visionary and Explorer

Featured Chart

This is another featured chart of inspirational people of our times. I have written a brief interpretation for Elon Musk and brought forward the important features of his chart.

Of course there are many smaller and minor details in this chart but as with all good astrology you need to stay on the high roads and leave the byways and back roads for another day.

On a side note, I love that he is from South Africa as you may know I spent the majority of my life there so it is close to my heart.

 

Chart Details

Birth details  7:30am, June 28, 1971, Pretoria, Gauteng, Republic of South Africa. 

 

General

Elon has an air and water emphasis suggesting his ideas and emotions are closely linked. He will go with his gut feeling when making decisions. Once the ideas come to him the level of excitement generated will allow his internal compass to choose the path he should take by the reactions each idea evokes.

There is a lack of the fire element which means he has weak inspiration but as we shall see this is counterbalanced by the two fire planets, Mars and Jupiter, being so well engaged in his chart.

 

The Sun

The Sun in Cancer shows his deep feelings for his family and he sees the business as a family. He truly cares for his employees and will make himself available for them.

 

Venus

Venus oriental in the sign of Gemini the Twins indicates people speak well of him and they will give him the benefit of the doubt. They love his message. He has a warm manner that attracts his audience.

 

Moon

The crescent Moon phase is a sign of promise to come as his life develops. Thing will emerge in their own time.

The Virgo Moon brings an emotional component to detailed work and he has the knack of spotting minute flaws in plans, projects or people. With this attention to detail he does not mean to bring others down but he uses it as a way to make things better for all. The smallest feeling or nuance will influence him to reassess his team and with whom he surrounds himself.

 

Mutual Reception

There is an interesting mutual reception between the Moon in Virgo and Mercury in Cancer. This supportive relationship suggests the feeling in his voice will be a give away as the coolness of his demeanor is belied by the emotions as he talks and shares his ideas with others.

Using gesticulations and strong words to make people care and respond to his message is a tactic he employs to great effect. He can talk and people will want to be a part of it all.

 

Major Aspect Pattern

Cardinal T-square Uranus opposition Chiron square Mercury.

With Mercury as the focal planet it draws the weakness and the breakdowns of his ideas through to be mentally processed. He probably has an active mind carefully assesses all inputs before he speaks. He will probably be aware of or be challenged by his perceived mental and verbal agility. He is a man of few words until he becomes comfortable with you. We may never know the real Elon as he protects himself through layers of technology.

 

Aspects

The good Saturn trine Pluto aspect harnesses the power of determination which will encourage Elon to succeed.

The Jupiter conjunct Neptune (both Pisces planets) shows his exploration and vision are brought together to make something big. This is the sign of a dreamer.

The Jupiter opposition Saturn (and note both of these planets are also contra-parallel) makes this a double whammy opposition. His dilemma is between his reach and his grasp. Can he strive towards massive journeys without compromising his core goals? This aspect will be the energy that keeps him awake at night.

His natal Saturn is opposition to Neptune and again contra-parallel once more reinforcing his controlled imagination. He will likely see things through colour and feel and see the internal art they possess. This shows a duality of confidence coupled with the fear of following his own rainbow.

 

Thor’s Hammer

The Mercury square Chiron and both sesquiquadrate Jupiter form the Thor’s Hammer major aspect pattern. This drives the chart and the man. He may hesitate to speak up but his actions will be his voice. He may feel his background is weak but in time he will be lauded as a pioneer and explorer extraordinaire. In his own mind he is still a young man who struggles to make idle chit chat.

 

Creativity

Inherent creativity is shown by the quintiles in his chart.

 

The Quintile Arrow

This is the most likely major aspect pattern that spearheads his innovation and creative drive. Mars is conjunct the north node in Aquarius indicating unpredictable leadership. As the head of his tribe he keeps everyone on their toes.

But that’s not all.

Mercury and Pluto are quintile each other and both are bi-quintile Mars. This forms the rare quintile arrow and points to Mars as the resolution for all his creative energy. He is truly a pioneer in fact he probably has many projects and ventures in the pipeline. He can turn his ability to any of them. This makes him a man’s man and a no nonsense kind of guy.

Mars trine Venus shows he will relish a beautiful woman on his arm. If she can communicate on his level or not it will not matter. He is likely to have the met love of his life at a young age and she may have been, or still is, the girl next door. He will use his early connection to the fairer sex as a yardstick with which to measure other women against.

The Sun biquintiles Neptune which suggests his vast imagination and how being identified with “out of this world” things is a part of his life.

He is a dreamer with the drive to make innovation. We have not seen all he can do. The best is yet to come.
