Your sample astrology report is continued here:
Suffice it to say that some individuals with grand trines do not accomplish as much as they could (and should in terms of self-actualization) in life because the easy flow of events does not stimulate achievement and ambition. The exact (1° orb or less) grand trine is thought to be more dynamic, with a lot of energy available to the planets involved. Though it may appear that luck falls into the life of a person with a grand trine, he or she has actually done a great deal to bring about this so-called “luck.” It is simply accomplished with such relative ease that little or no effort is visible.
Celebrities with grand trines in air are Claudio Arrau, Dirk Benedict, Edgar Bergen, Pat Boone, George H. W. Bush Sr., Agatha Christie, Angela Davis, Joseph Fiennes, Bobby Fischer, George Gershwin, Rutger Hauer, Woody Herman, Janis Joplin, Kevin Kline (1 in water), Joseph L. Mankiewicz, Groucho Marx, Audie Murphy, Lynn Redgrave (1 in earth), Robert Silverberg, Tom Selleck, Theodor (Dr.) Seuss, Roger Staubach, Sharon Tate, Noah Wylie, and William Butler Yeats. Those with your exact grand trine in air (Sun trine Moon trine Neptune) are/were Edgar Bergen, the American broadcast journalist Jessica Savitch, the British Astrologer Margaret Hone, the American revolutionary activist Diana Oughton, and the two inventors Leo Spitz and Sir Barnes Neville Wallace.
Your grand trine is part of a more rare and specific Planetary Pattern known as the Locomotive: a grand trine with all ten planets distributed about two-thirds of the chart, with no open area larger than 65° in the occupied two-thirds of the chart. If you look at your chart on page three, you’ll see that its occupied area stretches from Neptune (the green planet at the 7:00 position) clockwise to the Moon, at the 3:30 position. Your chart is unoccupied, or “open,” proceeding clockwise from the Moon to Neptune.
The Locomotive Planetary Pattern is very driving in nature, and like the embedded grand trine, has great inertia, whether in motion or in stasis; in either mode it’s hard to switch to the other. The life driving force or thrust of the Locomotive is the open area midpoint: in your chart, 11° 34’ of Sagittarius in the fourth house. The fourth house symbolizes one’s emotional foundation and subconscious self-image based on early childhood experiences, how you feel about yourself conditioned by your parents’ (or significant others’) acceptance or rejection of you as you were growing up. From those experiences you developed your sense of belonging and your capacity to receive—and/or a sense of alienation and a difficulty or frozenness in receiving. Thus what lies buried in the past may be an irritant in the psyche that may or may not develop into a pearl. The fourth house rules the home, our family as a child and as an adult, the nurturing parent and our early experience of being nurtured, our most personal and intimate life, real estate and property, and our heritage and ancestry. Here is where we send down roots and establish a base of operations, find our limits, and generally secure ourselves. It is the end of any searching we might have done in the third house, and thus rules the latter part of life.
I can’t tell you what you’re looking for in the fourth house, Carl, partly because how you respond to your karma and what you do with your life is your own free will; but partly because I’m not sure that your “thrust point” is even in the fourth house! As I mention on pages 189 and 191, a lot of this reading (open area thrust point in the fourth or the fifth house; Sun in the tenth or the eleventh house) depends on your exact minute of birth. I wonder if birth times given to the even half-hour (such as yours) are rounded approximations; and in this case, as in Robert Frost’s The Road Not Taken, “That has made all the difference.
”If your thrust point is in the fifth house, what you seek is very different. The fifth house shows your needs in love and where you release fourth house energies and emotions. The more emotional you are, the greater the need for constructive channels of expression. All forms of self-expression, anything you create or do purely for its own sake, children of the mind and the body, love affairs (insofar as they represent fun and self-expression) or their lack, theater, dramatics, hobbies, speculation, play and amusement, are all indicated by this house. This is also the house of hidden karma resulting from the misuse of the will or love principle in past lives.
There are 360 symbols for each degree of the zodiac popularized in the mid-twentieth century by Dane Rudhyar. Known as “Sabian symbols,” the one for 11°34’ is “A flag turns into an eagle; the eagle into a chanticleer saluting the dawn.” The interpretation by Rudhyar—akin to the commentaries of Confucius on the I Ching—for this symbol is “Annunciation: The spiritualization and promotion of great symbols of a New Age by minds sensitive to its precursory manifestations.” Food for thought; use his symbol as you would the Tarot, the I Ching, or interpreting a dream.
You have a mutable T-square Planetary Pattern in addition to your air grand trine and your Locomotive Planetary Patterns, and you almost have a fixed T-square as well. A T-square is three or more planets occupying three of the four vertices of a square. Your T-square consists of a Jupiter -Saturn opposition (refer to your chart on page three), both ends of which are squared by the Sun.
