Inner and Outer Focus in Chart Interpretation
Astrology Lesson 1 - Basic Chart Interpretation
by Tim Wilson
The astrological chart is a big circle with a lot of lines running through it. Two of the lines are darker than the other lines and divide the chart into four sections. For right now, only look at the line which divides the chart into a top part and a bottom part. This top and bottom to the chart symbolizes an outer world focus (top part) and an inner world focus (bottom part).
Count the number of pictures in the circle (one looks like a circle with a dot inside it, one looks a little like a fork, etc.), but ignore the picture that looks like a key and the picture that looks like an upside down horseshoe. There are a total of 10 pictures.
Now count the number of pictures below the line and the number of pictures above the line. If there are more pictures below the line than above, the chart has an inner world focus (i.e., introverted). If there are more pictures above the line than below it, the chart has an outer world focus (i.e., extroverted). If there are the exact same number of pictures below the line as above it, then the chart has a balanced focus (neither introverted nor extroverted).
This chart has four pictures above the middle line and six pictures below. Since there are more pictures below than above, this chart has an inner world focus. A person who has such a chart, although they may be out in the outer world, will most likely tend to be focused on their own inner world of personal concerns.
This chart is exactly opposite: it has six pictures above the middle line and four pictures below. Since there are more pictures above than below, this chart has an outer world focus. A person who has such a chart, although they may be very concerned about their own innere world issues, will most likely find that these personal issues focus on the needs and concerns of the outer world.
Finally, this chart is exactly balanced: it has five pictures above the middle line and five pictures below. Since there are the same number of pictures above as below, this chart has a balanced focus. A person who has such a chart will most likely be both concerned about the issues of their own inner world along with the issues of the outer world.
