Basic Chart Delineation - Simplified written by Inge Lohse



Blending the many variables of a natal chart can be compared to putting a jig saw puzzle together with some of the pieces missing. Combining the key words of the planets, signs and aspects can be an ominous task, even for the most advanced astrologer. Sifting through the obvious, to get to the heart of the chart is definitely an art. Many books have been written by very talented and astute astrologers to help us through this maze of key words, and yet, a lot of us are still confused and frustrated. The following method is not new or different ~ it is just simply simplified. Take the chart, one piece at a time and build the picture, so you can understand all of the variables step by step. Consider the sign on the house cusp as the primary colour. The ruler of the sign tells you how the house matters will be shaded. The planets in the houses are the brush strokes, and their strengths or weaknesses by sign and aspect will illustrate how you portray the matters of that house.
