Chart Geometrics - What's Yours?

This is what M's chart geometrics lok like. This is what I said.

"... the interesting thing about your chart is that all the lines point to the 6th and 7th houses. It looks like an origami swallow.

"Swallows symbolize similar things in most cultures but this is the description I liked best for you. The wings tips of the “swallow” are the Sun and Jupiter. All planets are contained within them between the exquisitely romantic and lovely signs of Leo and Pisces, an inconjunct.
[from wikipedia] "The swallow tattoo was a symbol used historically by sailors to show off their sailing experience. Of British origin in the early days of sailing, it was the image of a barn swallow, usually tattooed on the chest. According to one legend, a sailor with one swallow had travelled over 5,000 nautical miles (9,000 km); a sailor with two swallows had travelled 10,000 nautical miles (19,000 km). Travelling these great distances was extremely difficult and dangerous in the early days of sailing, so one or more swallow tattoos denoted a very experienced and valuable sailor. It is also legend that if the sailor drowns, the swallows will carry their soul to heaven, representing freedom and hope."

What are your chart geometrics symbolizing? Email me and I'll take a look for a small charge.
