Quadrant Patterns in the Zodiac Wheel
Here are some easy guidelines for Quadrant Patterns when using all 78 tarot cards in an astrological spread. The horoscope is divided into quadrants, and if there is a majority of planets in a particular sector, general statements are made.
Meanings of the Quadrants
The notes below concern the planets, but you may find relevance when looking at the Court Cards too.
1,2,3,10,11,12: Sector East
The querent is self-determined, able to choose own lifestyle, social life and career. A time for new endeavours and experiences. Freedom to make choices and not being obliged to others.
4,5,6,7,8,9: Sector West
The querent is largely influenced by the actions of others. Opportunities arise through the activities and circumstances of others.
7,8,9,10,11,12: Sector South Above
Actions take place in the full view of the world. A balanced view of life. Emphasis on being pushed around, controlled, or victimised by experiences in the world swept away by events. A tendency to extroversion. A lack of stability or anchor.
1,2,3,4,5,6,7: Sector North Below
A subjective view of life. Unfinished business in the early home life. The planets are below the horizon, lack of visibility. Need for privacy and subjectivity.
The descriptions above are combined into quadrants – such as, if there is a majority of planets in the First, Second and Third Houses, you can synthesize the descriptions of East and North Below.
