The Seven Astrological Star Patterns

 

Finally, we will touch on the seven astrological star patterns from the American astrologer Marc Edmund Jones.

Marc Edmund Jones considered the distribution of planets in the natal chart determined the nature of the person.

The seven star patterns are: Bowl, Bucket, Bundle, Locomotive, Seesaw, Splash and Splay. He called these star patterns “focal determinators”.

To establish the star pattern in a natal chart, use only the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

In the bowl pattern, the planets are self-contained in one half of the chart.

These subjects are eager for experience. The houses in which these planets are tenanted will be especially relevant.

This star pattern relates to the zodiac signs Virgo and Scorpio.

THE BOWL

THE BUCKET

In the bucket pattern, nine planets are in one half of the chart, and the tenth is in the other, forming the handle of the bucket.
