Consequently, Chiron is of Saturn's nature and at the same time is influenced by Uranus, the first slow-moving planet. Astrologically, it symbolizes wisdom, patience and the faculty to reduce others' sufferings: it is said to be the "great healer" of the zodiac. Like all the secondary bodies, it must be in close conjunction with planets or angles in order to fully express its action.
Ceres , the biggest of the four minor asteroids used besides Chiron, is associated with the mythological goddess of growing plants and harvest and also symbolizes physical constitution, vitality and fertility. She's also known as Demeter, according to the astrologer Zipporah Dobyns, linked to the symbolism of the mother but in a less emotive and more physical way than the Moon. Ceres is thought to be the ruler of Virgo, in exaltation in Gemini, in exile in Pisces and in fall in Sagittarius.
Keywords associated with Ceres could be order, practical sense, worry, precision, modesty, method, sobriety, motherhood, fertility, the Earth: a kind of a more cerebral Moon Pallas is sometimes used in modern Astrology: she represents intelligence, abstract and global thinking talents. It is usually considered to be a determining element in political strategy. Juno is the asteroid corresponding to the adaptation to the marital partner and to the defence of individual rights; it is thus used in the field of marriage.
Vesta is rarely used and brings the ability to efficiently devote oneself to a cause. The North Node True Node here represents the goals that must be achieved during life, in the karmic sense according to some traditions. Its position in house indicates in what field an effort is necessary in order to evolve. The North Node is often called the Dragon's head, it is usually considered beneficial, a bit like Jupiter with the planets.
The Lunar nodes are fictional points and not actual heavenly bodies: they are the intersections of the Moon with the Ecliptic the path made by the Sun in its orbit as seen from the Earth.
The axis of the Lunar nodes moves 19 degrees each year, namely a bit more than three minutes each day. The South Node is diametrically opposed to the North Node, therefore it faces it it's not drawn here, it's the same symbol but upside down. It symbolizes what has already been achieved or acquired, in a karmic sense: it's the past from which it's advised to move on in order to progress.
The South Node is rather negative, of a Saturnian nature: the experience through suffering. Lilith or the Dark Moon True Lilith here represents the uncrossable threshold, taboos, the individual's provocative and fascinating side, including on a sexual level. She symbolizes violence and "untameability", the radical and deep-seated refusal to submit. The keywords for Lilith can be sterility, sadism, perversity, castration, sadomasochism, eroticism, orgasm, forbidden fantasies, marginality, cruelty; redemption, illumination, rebelliousness Lilith's opposite point is called Priapus; it is the Lunar perigee, the position where the Moon is closest to the Earth.
It symbolizes man's primitive nature, the horror hidden in our deepest self; masochism, extreme sensuality, impulsiveness, irrationality and excess. Physically speaking, the Dark Moon is the focal point unoccupied by the Earth: it is not a concrete body but a mathematical point.
Methodical, affable, and obliging character. Nevertheless, excessive kindness may lead to trust unworthy people and thus, to miss good opportunities.

The Vertex , sometimes called counter-Ascendant, is a fictitious point which is at the intersection of two great circles, the Ecliptic and the great vertical circle Prime Vertical in the West of the birthplace, linking the East, the Zenith, the West, and the Nadir.
It is always located in the West of the chart around the Descendant. It is the chart's fifth angle, so to speak, less important than the other angles. Its interpretation is controversial, because certain astrologers pay no attention to it. The Vertex is sometimes considered to be the second Descendant because, like the latter, it is related to communication and exchanges.
It has to do with associations and fated encounters, those that are not chosen, and reveals the type of sensitivity and reactivity we have in our dealings with other people: a refined and tolerant way in Libra, straightforward and spontaneous in Aries, etc. The East Point is a fictitious point at the intersection of two great circles, the Ecliptic and the great vertical circle Prime Vertical in the East of the birthplace, linking the East, the Zenith, the West, and the Nadir.

Here are some character traits from Dizzy Gillespie's birth chart. In a matter of minutes, you can get at your email address your astrological portrait approximately 32 pages , a much more comprehensive report than this portrait of Dizzy Gillespie. When interpreting a natal chart, the best method is to start gradually from general features to specific ones.
Thus, there is usually a plan to be followed, from the overall analysis of the chart and its structure, to the description of its different character traits.
In the first part, an overall analysis of the chart enables us to figure out the personality's main features and to emphasize several points that are confirmed or not in the detailed analysis: in any case, those general traits are taken into account.
Human personality is an infinitely intricate entity and describing it is a complex task. Claiming to rapidly summarize it is illusory, although it does not mean that it is an impossible challenge. It is essential to read a natal chart several times in order to absorb all its different meanings and to grasp all this complexity. But the exercise is worthwhile.
In brief, a natal chart is composed of ten planets: two luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, three fast-moving or individual planets, Mercury, Venus and Mars, two slow-moving planets, Jupiter and Saturn, and three very slow-moving planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
They are all posited on the Zodiac wheel consisting of twelve signs, from Aries to Pisces, and divided into twelve astrological houses. The first step is to evaluate the importance of each planet. This is what we call identifying the dominant planets. This process obeys rules that depend on the astrologer's sensitivity and experience but it also has precise and steady bases: thus, we can take into account the parameters of a planet's activity the number of active aspects a planet forms, the importance of each aspect according to its nature and its exactness , angularity parameters; proximity to the four angles, Ascendant, Midheaven, Descendant and Imum Coeli or Nadir, all of them being evaluated numerically, according to the kind of angle and the planet-angle distance and quality parameters rulership, exaltation, exile and fall.
Finally, other criteria such as the rulership of the Ascendant and the Midheaven etc. These different criteria allow a planet to be highlighted and lead to useful conclusions when interpreting the chart. The overall chart analysis begins with the observation of three sorts of planetary distributions in the chart: Eastern or Western hemisphere, Northern or Southern hemisphere, and quadrants North-eastern, North-western, South-eastern and South-western.
These three distributions give a general tone in terms of introversion and extraversion, willpower, sociability, and behavioural predispositions. Then, there are three additional distributions: elements called triplicity since there are three groups of signs for each one - Fire, Air, Earth and Water - corresponding to a character typology, modality or quadruplicity with four groups of signs for each one - Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable - and polarity Yin and Yang.
There are three types of dominants: dominant planets, dominant signs and dominant houses. The novice thinks astrology means only "to be Aries" or sometimes, for example, "to be Aries Ascendant Virgo".
It is actually far more complex. Although the Sun and the Ascendant alone may reveal a large part of the character - approximately a third or a half of your psychological signature, a person is neither "just the Sun" called the sign nor just "the first house" the Ascendant. Thus, a particular planet's influence may be significantly increased; a particular sign or house may contain a group of planets that will bring nuances and sometimes weaken the role of the Ascendant, of the Sun sign etc.
Lastly, there are two other criteria: accentuations angular, succedent and cadent which are a classification of astrological houses and types of decanates that are occupied each sign is divided into three decanates of ten degrees each.
They provide some additional informations. These general character traits must not be taken literally; they are, somehow, preparing for the chart reading.
They allow to understand the second part of the analysis, which is more detailed and precise. Contrarily, his talent earned him a place in the school band. Radio encounters with the music of Roy Eldridge, an early jazz trumpet legend, inspired the youngster to concentrate on trumpet. However, Gillespie did not have any direction until one night he heard David Roy Eldridge play on the radio.

There he joined a band led by Frankie Fairfax. Willis was not immediately friendly but Gillespie was attracted anyway and the two got married on May 9, They remained together until his death. Gillespie also had a daughter, Jeanie Bryson, born out of a liaison with songwriter Connie Bryson. She is also a celebrated singer, specializing in a combination of jazz, pop, and Latin music.
Because of the universal nature of his faith, he saw himself as a global citizen and a musical messenger. He also took great interest in his African heritage. Apart from his music, this famous trumpeter was also known for his swollen cheeks and his trademark trumpet, which had its bell angled at forty-five degree. During this period, not yet having a style of his own, he mostly cloned his hero David Roy Eldridge. After a move to New York in , Dizzy held positions in bands led by Teddy Hill, Al Cooper, and others, culminating in a spot in the band led by Cab Calloway, a famous singer, and bandleader.

During , nearly every former swing band was trying to play bop, and for a brief period the major record companies tried very hard to turn the music into a fad. By , the fad had ended and Gillespie was forced, due to economic pressures, to break up his groundbreaking orchestra. He had occasional and always exciting reunions with Charlie Parker including a fabled Massey Hall concert in up until Bird's death in , toured with Jazz at the Philharmonic where he had opportunities to "battle" the combative Roy Eldridge , headed all-star recording sessions using Stan Getz , Sonny Rollins , and Sonny Stitt on some dates , and led combos that for a time in also featured Coltrane and Milt Jackson.
