View Full Version : Harmonics Charts
03-11-2006, 12:43 PM
I was just checking out AM's Indicators of Musical Talent in a Natal Chart thread and realized harmonics is an area that I have absolutely no knowledge or understanding of and would like some guidance. I know astro.com will generate the charts but I have no idea how to interpret from them.

I know I have a good source on that, but I'm not sure what it is. I'll look for it at home. Meanwhile, you might wanna check www.bobmarksastrologer.com

Awesome thread! I had been attempting to revitalize the Harmonics Board (http://astrologyweekly.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=975) I originally created in the Spiritual Realm (http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=16&sid=7e142e07b3fc5ca23e5d7785a23a8058), but it was about time someone created a thread to discuss harmonics from a real astrological point of view! :wink:

So let me see if I am understanding this correctly:
A 2nd harmonic chart would resolve an opposition into a conjunction. It would show how personal resources, self-worth and self-reliance issues are affected through the aspects that are made with the opposition.
A 3rd harmonic chart would resolve a trine into a conjunction. It would show how a person gathers, reacts to, uses and shares information that affects everyday life through the aspects that are made with the trine.
A 4th harmonic chart would resolve a square into a conjunction. It would show how one develops a sense of home and family which makes sense for the answers the soul is seeking in this lifetime through the aspects that are made with the resolved square.
A 5th harmonic chart would resolve a quintile or biquintile into a conjunction. It would show how the person defines what creativity is for the person, what type of creative outlets the person has or will develop, how outside forces have tried to shape the creative product, etc., through the aspects that are made with the resolved quintile or biquitile.
A 6th harmonic chart would resolve a sextile or semisextile into a conjunction. This would show the types of service to the greater community the person is to provide, what type of healing modalities work for the person and that the person might provide for others, how to move the physical being towards greater perfection with the soul, how one seeks out mentors and the mentorship path of the person, etc., through the aspects that are made with the resolved sextile or semisextile.
A 7th harmonic chart would resolve a septile or a biseptile into a conjunction. It would deal with how one relates to the concept of relationship and degrees of closeness—i.e. those let into the inner sanctum, so to speak—, how does one define the term relationship within different contexts and how does one balance competing relationships to bring harmony within, through the aspects that are made with the resolved septile or biseptile.
An 8th harmonic chart would resolve an octile or bi-octile into a conjunction. It would show how one deals with the depths and inticracies of life, the response to the mysterious and not easily explainable, the way one faces magic, mysticism and metaphysics through the aspects that are made with the resolved octile or bi-octile.
A 9th harmonic chart would resolve a novile or bi-novile into a conjunction. It would show how one expands one's belief and spiritual system, how one elevates common learning and information into wisdom, where one's dogmatic streak may be the strongest, the map of how full consciousness can develop for the person through the aspects that are made with the resolved novile or bi-novile.
A 10th harmonic chart would resolve a decile (is that the correct term?) into a conjunction. It would show how the person defines what "public" is in life, the different faces the person shows to different publics, what types of expectations and limitations the public puts on the person, etc. through the aspects that are made with the resolved decile.
Good idea Elianah to start this thread. Of the few articles I've read on this it seems that Harmonics therory varies quite a bit. Some have aligned the Harmonic with the house. Others take a more elevated look at what the Harmonic represents. I think lots of experimentation is in order.
I found this article on the 9th Harmonic and how it describes Soul Mates. http://www.aquarius-atlanta.com/aug04/harmonic.shtml
I then took a look at my wife and I's 9th Harmonic Charts and here's what I found:
Her Sun exactly opposes my Moon. Her Moon is within one degree of my asendant. My Sun and Jupiter exactly oppose her Jupiter.
Her Mars is within 5 degrees of my Venus conjunct Pluto. My Mars within 3 degrees of opposing her Saturn. My Saturn and Uranus conjunct her Neptune and oppose her Pluto and Lilith My Lilith conjuncts her Mars and opposes her Vesta. My Neptune conjuncts her Vesta and opposes her Mars.
Her Midheaven opposes my Midheaven within one degree and my Midheaven conjuncts her Jupiter. Our Juno's oppose each other within one degree.
Her vertex conjuncts my Mars and my Vertex conjuncts her Jupiter. My Mercury conjunct her Ceres. Her Mercury opposes my Chiron. Her Chiron opposes my Ascendant.
When I look at the relationship between our natal charts, I notice my chart fits very nicely into her water Grand Trine. Her chart however seems to intensify existing t-squares and create some more! This makes sense when you factor in my Grand Trine that requires stress points to activate it. As they say, behind every successful man is a woman kicking him in the butt.
Very freaky though all these contacts between our 9th Harmonic Charts. I have a feeling I'll be studying Harmonics for quite awhile :roll:

Well, I guess I have given up on the idea of soul mates as defined by conventional wisdom, so I guess the 9th Harmonic chart representing soul mates does not resonate with me at this time.
I think that linking the harmonics chart with the vibratory patterns of the houses with their natural rulers and signs makes sense to me at my level of understanding.
Which might also mean that by looking at the planet that vibrates/resonates with that harmonic and its relationships within that harmonics chart, one might an interesting read off it. For example, if one links the 4th harmonic with the natural sign and planet of the 4th house, it would be Cancer and the Moon. Linking the Moon to squares might seem unthinkable to some. Yet squares can have deep, challenging emotional vibrations to resolve...
Just thinking out loud...
Here's an interesting thread on Harmonics that also references some Web links for more info. http://members.tripod.com/~junojuno2/harmon9.htm
Here's an article which gets into the metaphysical theory underlying the harmonics. http://users.esc.net.au/~rodsmith/Introduction.html#9
