The influence of the chart is often described from an individual standpoint. “A placement is THIS with no explanation.” However, it’s possible to determine where this influence came from, especially if you read it from the viewpoint of a child growing into their ego, individuality, social nature, achievements, and limitations.
This is why I often depict the sun and moon as the parents in my chart readings.
- Sun – Individual nature found through the masculine parent
- Moon – Relating nature found through the feminine parent
- Saturn – Limitations brought by others
- Jupiter – Unquestionable success brought by others
The sun can also be seen in others as random encouragements throughout the lifetime, which does not necessarily have to be through a parent.
The moon can also be seen in others as moments that connect two people on a deeper level than the ego, which does not necessarily have to be through a parent.
Saturn’s limitations can be seen as being ignored by others, discouraged, emotional destruction, and doubt.
Jupiter’s expansion can be seen as being encouraged by others, acknowledged, or given the opportunity to do something.
