This week I'm covering the Whole Sign Method.

It's slightly different to the Equal House System I've been teaching you.

Here is the link to Robert Hand's excellent text on the subject

You can make your own chart up using this system on 

Go to the Extended Chart Selection under FREE Horoscopes and when you've entered your data, under where it says 'options for zodiac and houses' choose 'whole signs'.

Here's a screenshot.

This is also where you can get your chart to be Equal House, which is what I've been teaching you...

Here's Queen Elizabeth in Equal House

This week I am discussing charts with Sun square Moon. Quite a common aspect and one that can work well as it gives inner motivation or not so well if no self-reflection.

Remember The Sun is conscious

The Moon is unconscious

This week we are covering giving birth and the dynamics involved.

First chart is me on inside, my son on outside. His Ascendant is exactly conjunct my Sun in Pisces. His Moon is in my 5th. A very emotional time (nice emotions!)


Second chart is my mother giving birth to me. Nothing special with 5 house. Dynamic didn't happen until I gave birth and again much later when my Mum was very old. Moon in same sign.


My Mum and first born my brother. No 5th house birth dynamic, other than Neptune (drugs). A bigger story with 7th house Bruv's Moon.

My Dad and first born my brother. Bruv's Moon to Dad's Sun conjunction and Bruv's Moon also conjuncts Dad's Ascendant. Both charts are Bucket charts. Bruv's Mercury to Dad's Moon/Saturn/Jupiter in 10th.
