How can a lay person know if someone has a good chart?
When I meet someone new, I can know if he/she would have a good chart/planets even before I draw up his/her chart. Knowledge of astrology is not the only thing necessary – you also need to be aware and alert.
Hence, it is actually possible to observe a person and tell if he / she has a good chart. By this I mean that the person has major planets like Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and to some extent Jupiter placed in one or more trine houses (1st, 5th and 9th) at the very minimum.
This also would prove again how astrology is linked to behaviour patterns, actions and destiny of humans on planet earth.
You have to differentiate between fake and genuine behaviour.
A. At the first contact meeting
Polite and cheerful- If a person is polite and cheerful at the same time you can be rest assured that he not only has a good chart but is also going through a good period. This shows a well placed Sun.
Patient – Patience is the hallmark of a good chart as you do require good and strong planets to have this rare characteristic. Restlessness which is so common these days (like tapping feet etc.) is generally not a good sign. This also shows a well placed Moon.
Trusting – Is the person trusting or judging you and is suspicious ? If you talk to a person does the person accept what you are saying? –
Assertive – People who are non aggressive and non passive but assertive have a well placed Sun and/or Mercury.
Well Groomed – Good Mercury and Jupiter
No sweating on the palms or brows – When you shake hand with a person his/her palms should not be sweating and also sweating on the brows even while sitting in the air conditioned i a sign of nervous issues which is a direct sign of Moon issues.
Confidence – Good Sun and Mars as well as Moon
Calm – This shows a well placed Moon and Saturn
B. Over a period of time
The above characteristics should not wane but remain as is is a sure sign of an excellent chart with Rahu and Ketu under check.
Money – Is the person driven by money. If that is all you hear then you better be careful as that means flaws in the chart, especially empty or enemy trine houses
Education – Good solid education means a well placed Jupiter
Hard Working and Driven – Well placed Saturn
Enjoys life and charming – Excellent Venus
Popular with friends and relatives – Excellent Mercury and no ill planets in the 8th house
Soft spoken and assertive – Excellent Mercury and Moon
Thinks of others good – 12th house activated but in a controlled way
C . Last but not the least
Excellent health – Emotional, Mental and Physical (ignore birth defects or health issues) – This is the most important factor and means an excellent chart, all major planets in synchronization.
