Choosing which type of cyclic chart to use.

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.

Dave has been exploring cyclic astrology since the mid-1970's. CYCLIC astrology utilizes both Return charts and planetary-pair cycles for short-term prediction. These practices and nine years of archived material are available for study or reading at A new book, Personal Prediction ISBN 978-9-615-63033-5, has been published and the MC-Solar Cycle technique is now supported through a recognized software provider so that all students and practicing astrologers can apply these techniques for their own use.
