Recently, I’ve had a run of clients will a major emphasis on the Eastern hemisphere of their natal chart. For newbies, this means that most of the planets fall on the left side of the chart.
A person with a lot of planets on the left side of their chart tends to be more self-focused. For example, the second house is concerned with your money; the eighth has to do with other people’s resources.
It doesn’t matter much. We are what we are! But I got thinking about this when one client presented me with her chart along with her partner’s chart. Both charts were strikingly concentrated on the Eastern hemisphere. I wondered this might work in relationship. You have admit it’s cool puzzle.
I’m italicizing words to make it clear that I’m talking about a small group here. I don’t want people with 60% of their planets in the Eastern hemisphere, thinking this applies to them. It does not! This post is concerned with extreme situations.
Back to this couple, a person who lacks planets in the Western hemisphere will generally have to stretch to become involved and maintain relationships. A lot of times you can put two people with the same challenge together and they’ll work it out. I would not suppose this would be the case in this circumstance.
I’m not saying two people with Eastern emphasis can’t partner. But I would expect the pairing to be two “me’s” and no “we”.
In whatever case, it’s interesting. I decided to post this so we could talk about it. If you’re new to “hemispheres” in astrology, here’s a crash course:
Is the Eastern hemisphere emphasized in your chart? How do you feel this impacts your relationships?
