October 19, 2019 – Exploring Your T-Squares with Tom Chaplin

According to Tracy Marks, the T-square appears in 40% of all natal charts which makes it a fairly common pattern. The T-square is a dynamic pattern that stands out in the natal chart as a prominent feature. The friction and stress that is generated forces the individual to take action. Many people with a natal T-square find it difficult to relax or sit still. There’s a great deal of busyness created by this pattern along with inner tension and stress that is typically expressed through relationships. There’s a constant push to resolve conflicts and almost always a drive to do and accomplish more.

Although the T-square is a challenging pattern, there are ways to work with it. We’ll deconstruct the T-square by exploring the polarity of the opposing planets as well as the challenger planet that squares the opposition. We’ll also discuss the meaning of the empty leg which can provide relief.

Regardless of whether or not you have a T-square in your natal chart, you should still find this talk meaningful since a natal opposition or square can temporarily form a T-square in your chart through transit or progression. Those periods can indicate very important times in your life.
