Dr. Marianne Johnson
Title: Chart Patterns and Final Dispositors
A useful first step in chart interpretation is to look at the gestalt or pattern formed by the planets in the zodiac. We will learn the six main chart patterns (bundle, bowl, bucket, see-saw, locomotive and splash) and what each pattern suggests about the personality, conscious and unconscious.
A useful later step in chart interpretation is to determine whether the chart has a “bottom line” signified by a planet that is a final dispositor. This planet is in its sign of rulership and disposes all the other planets. If time permits variations, such as a chart disposited by two planets in mutual reception, will also be discussed.
Recommended: Please bring your birth charts! People with a bundle (planets within 120 degrees), bowl (planets within 180 degrees) or bucket (all but one planet within 180 degrees) chart shapes willing to have their chart used for demonstration will be greatly appreciated.
Dr. Marianne Johnson is a psychologist in private practice. She has long-standing interests in Jungian psychology (including training at the Jung Institute in Kusnacht, Switzerland) and in astrology. Formative influences on her approach to astrology are Jeffrey Wolfe Green’s Evolutionary Astrology and Tibetan Buddhism reincarnation.

Presenter: VERONIKA ELIASOVA
Veronika’s drive to understand the complexities of the human psyche and the context within which each human being is born, shaped, and ultimately called upon to undertake the hero’s journey has led her to the study of psychology, sociology, astrology, past lives, and everything spiritual and obscure. Her readings in astrology always take her deeper down the rabbit hole and yield a wealth of information that shed light upon the enigma of the self and signal the way to personal transformation and unfoldment.
