Review By Margaret Gray
This review is from: Planetary Patterns and High Focus Planets (Paperback)
Lance Carter, was first introduced to astrology as a
child and later became an astrologer on radio, newspapers and the internet.
Lance previously published `Lightbody activation and Psychic Surgery'.
The focus of this book is a detailed exploration of the meaning of the seven
main planetary patterns in charts, originally outlined by Dr Marc Edmund Jones
in 1941. In fact, the author corresponded and conversed with Dr. Jones, whilst
doing his own astrological research. Section One, of this interesting book
introduces the reader to Spherical Astrology and offers an overview of the main
planetary patterns: the Splash, Bundle, Seesaw, Bowl, Bucket, Locomotive, Splay
and Fan patterns. Lance also highlights the importance of `the cutting planet'
and `the trailing planet' as well as the `high focus planets'. The remainder of
this section outlines each pattern in detail, describing behavioral and
emotional tendencies for individuals with each pattern.
In Section two, the author's focus moves onto ways of recognizing the `High
Focus Planet' in the chart, with interpretations for each of the planets when
they are in this placement. Section three offers 100 example charts, outlining
their planetary patterns with the final section of the book focusing in some
detail on the nature of astrological aspects.
This is a thorough book, which clearly explains each pattern in detail, as well
as offering the reader simple, well designed diagrams to aid our understanding.
It is likely to be of interest to all astrologers, although less experienced
astrologers, are more likely to find the section on planets and aspects
particularly helpful. In particular, this book reminds us of a very helpful
visual way, a chart can be engaged with, at first glance.

Planetary Patterns and High Focus Planets in Spherical Astrology by Lance Carter
is an introduction to astrology's seven fundamental planetary patterns: Splash,
Bundle, Seesaw, Bowl, Bucket, Locomotive, and Splay. This book presents a
whole-view look at the chart. Much of this book is filled with sample
interpretations or delineations for each planetary pattern, planet, luminary,
and aspect. The psychology of each planetary pattern, or Temperament Type, is
presented as direct advice for chart delineation. The planetary pattern and
other basic astrological influences of one hundred horoscopes are examined. The
horoscopes were selected from books by Marc Edmund Jones, Dane Rudhyar, Robert
Jansky, Michael Meyer, and Stephanie Clement, Ph.D. Ephemeris, birth
information, and source references are included. High Focus Planets and
astrological aspects are delineated. Spherical astrology, which is also known as
three-dimensional astrology or true-body astrology, is explained and
presents a whole-view look at astrology’s seven fundamental planetary patterns:
Splash, Bundle, Seesaw,
Bowl, Bucket, Locomotive, and Splay. This is a quick and accurate method that
puts a chart into perspective and gives an overall view of mental and emotional
traits. Learn about someone's psychological profile just by identifying the
chart’s fundamental pattern. Learn to read charts using this time-tested
technique to interpret potentials and personality. The pattern orchestrates the
planets. The planetary pattern affects behavior. Each planetary pattern is
another path to success. To graphically illustrate the concept, one hundred
charts are presented, each on their own page with the planetary pattern and
other basic astrological influences, from Paula Abdul to William Yeats.
Ephemeris, birth information, and reference sources for each example chart are
included. Also included are a Glossary, Bibliography, and complete index. Easily
find the High Focus, Leading, Cutting, Trailing, Trigger and Anchor Planets.
Learn how the High Focus Planet shapes an individual and their approach to life.
Spherical astrology, also known as true-body astrology or three-dimensional
astrology, is explained and illustrated. The example horoscopes also have
information about spherical aspects when they affect the chart. This book
presents a new degree of precision in astrology!
