The planets positions often seem to become clustered in one part of the chart or another. When this occurs,
there is a sort of hemisphere preponderance. A division of the circle perpendicularly produces two
hemispheres, east and west. A split horizontally produces a southern hemisphere and a northern
hemisphere. As you view your natal horoscope, the hemisphere on the left side of the chart is the eastern
hemisphere with the extreme eastern point, the eastern horizon, being the Ascendant. The opposite side of
the chart is the descendant or western hemisphere. The upper hemisphere on the chart is the South
Midheaven, the medium Coeli (MC) or southern hemisphere. The lower half of the chart is the Imum Coeli
(IC), the lowest heaven, or northern hemisphere. It is not unusual for there to be an emphasis in one
direction or the other. Here is an idea of what you may anticipate from the hemisphere emphasis:
The planets clustered in the eastern hemisphere suggest that you're likely to be more independent, strong-
willed, and more individualistic than reading of your signs may otherwise suggest. The placements on the
east side denotes leadership ability, a self-starter, one who is self-motivated and often self-employed; a risk-
taker. In short, you're more apt to be the author of your own destiny, and one likely to have many choices in
The planets clustered in the western hemisphere suggest that you are highly adaptable to opportunities, but
you are also somewhat dependent on others in many ways. You are passive or subtle in your actions, often
permitting others to take the lead. You work best in a partnership or group employment arrangements,
always having others involved in your destiny. You have a sense for taking advantage of opportunities that
are presented to you, and because of this you usually make the most of them.
The planets clustered in the southern hemisphere suggest that you are ambitious, career oriented, and
generally want fame and recognition. You have an objective view of life that lets you enjoys working with
others. You are very active in the outside world, having broad material values and goals. There is much that
is visible when the planets are in the south; little that you say or do escapes public view.
The planets clustered in the northern hemisphere suggest a very subjective view of life with personal
privacy noted as important. You enjoy working alone because you are a little introspective and perhaps
even introverted. So your accomplishment may often lack recognition. This more subjective view of
matters can produce significant focus and thrust of action.
When the planets occupy the northeast, you place great faith in your native abilities and you are less
inclined to trust others with tasks that you feel you can do better on your own. You tend to be na\u00efvely self-
contained and highly subjective in your judgments. You place a great value on maintaining your privacy.
Planets focused in the southeastern quarter of the chart shows a highly self-contained individual very much
in control of your destiny. This is a very outward focused grouping showing one who is totally willing to
consider others in life situations. There is a tendency to seek self-fulfillment through sharing with others
and success is measured not so much by your standards, but by what opinion others hold of you.
