Sometimes the type of chart you want to use just doesn’t work. Jackie Robinson’s charts fall into this category. Right now I am on a bus tour covering several days — last night before leaving I ran a number of p.c. Solar Returns and Progressed Daily Angles charts for Jackie, only to find that they just didn’t work. They didn’t tell a story. This happens once in a while. It bothers me, I figure it must bother others as well. So, why?
The answer lies in the natal chart, a chart that I did not cover much in the prior posting. Jackie is a “new moon” person, Moon and Sun both at 11 Aquarius, both in the 6th house and opposing Neptune. He “resonates” with the Sun and Moon, and the Moon-to-Sun charting used in the prior posting just fits into his astrological make up. Apparently, Solar Returns and their derived charts do not fit him well.
I like to explore differing chart types and methods, perhaps I’ll try diurnal charts in one of these posts — most people seem to relate well to their personal Sun & Angles cycles. Right now, I’ll go do some work in the short time I have this evening and try to get some charts and commentary ready for Monday or Tuesday evening. If any of my readers have had this or similar experiences with charts, drop a comment. Dave.
