Horoscope Shapes
Birth Chart Shape Characteristics

Distribution of planets in the horoscope tells us something about the dynamics of the person´s personality, about how he or she uses life energy, and in what direction.

The shape of the horoscope tells us something about the person´s inclinations. This insight into overall human character is based on Gestalt psychology.

Horoscope Shapes

The shape of a horoscope can tell us something about recurring inclinations of a person and there are certain advantages and limitations associated with each shape. It is good to be aware of our limitations and inclinations, understand them and try to overcome them by using our abilities (as the horoscope suggests). This is one of the psychological challenges on our path to self-identity.
The shape of the horoscope may not be clearly visible in the horoscope. But if the shape of the horoscope is obvious (Distinct Shape), we should pay attention to it because it tells us a lot about the person´s characteristics and his or her attitude to life.
Distinct Shapes:
Astrology Chart Shape - BOWL

Bowl

All planets are distributed in just one half of the horoscope at about 180°.
Astrology Chart Shape - BUCKET (FUNNEL)

Bucket (Funnel / Bucket Handle)

All planets but one are distributed together or at least in the same hemisphere, and are opposed by another planet ("handle" of the bucket).
Astrology Chart Shape - LOCOMOTIVE

Locomotive

All planets are evenly distributed in two-thirds of the horoscope of about 240 °. At least one third of the horoscope (approximately 120 °) remains empty.
Astrology Chart Shape - BUNDLE (WEDGE, CLUSTER)

Bundle (Wedge / Cluster)

All planets are evenly distributed in one third of the horoscope of about 120°.
This shape thus involves a significant accumulation of planets in one area, called stellium.
Astrology Chart Shape - SPLASH

Splash

All planets are relatively evenly distributed around the horoscope, although there may be larger distances between planets (e.g. 60°- 80°).
Astrology Chart Shape - SEE-SAW

All planets are distributed in two clusters opposite each other, with empty space of at least 60° on both sides.
