The use of an integrate Chart - that is an horoscope which owns the peculiar
characteristics of two or more subjects sharing any kind of affective relationship, both
parental and economical - has become very frequent, because of its extremely practical use
and computing get easier by the use of computer but, at the same time, is also contested
by many persons, as well, as it is considered a bit artificial, which isn't born by an
objective event but, instead, by simple mathematical considerations. In this optic is also
the system of Integrate Chart actually, surely the most popular in Italy, the Hand method,
with the help of a good translation of the original book by Armenia
But, I wondered, is it
possible to get an Integrate Chart which can also be considered a real horoscope, that is
an objective photograph of a certain event, with own characteristics? Well, it's enough
moving the sight a bit across our State borders and looking, this time, not at the usual
and always eclectic France but, instead, a bit more Est, toward Countries like Austria and
Germany, to learn a real interesting method to build an Integrate Chart, totally unknown
here, at least for what I know, but extremely popular in those Countries, as much as to be
defined the "European reply", to the Hand method and which, instead of that, has
not got at the base the building of a new horoscope with no personal data, but it is a
Chart with an own well-defined identity: the Schiffmann method or Combin.
This method consists, in
practice, in computing the addition of birth data concerning two persons involved
in a certain relationship, effecting then the average (while in the Hand method one has to
make the average between the only horoscope positions) in order to get all necessary data
and build a new horoscope, respecting completely the analogical rule, exactly like a child
has got own characteristics but you can find in him some typical tracts of both parents'
The integrate Schiffmann
system is a method quite young: Heinrich Schiffmann had the idea, on Sept. 18, 1972 - and
the well-known Teutonic precious also fixes the time: at 15.40 CET - giving life to that
system which, in German countries, will later be called "Combin" and which
permits, beside the deep analyse of the couple relationship, also the chance, truly
important to be noted, to effect on itself Directions, Transits and Solar Returns. In
January 1976 was then printed an article of him in "Astrologischen
Auskunftsboden" which, later, in March 1979 was followed by a further article in
"Qualität der Zeit". The analyse, then, is extremely interesting as it's not
only generalise all characteristics of the couple but, instead, it permits the exact
combination of all caracteristics which comes out from the chart observations, to a
certain well-defined subject, as theorised, successfully, by Sāndor Belcsāk and which
can be synthesised as following:
- : they
indicate WHO gets involved man-woman (I and VII houses);
- : they
indicate WHAT gets involved, material stuff (II house), love, children (V house),
sexuality, obligees (VIII house), friendship (XI house);
- : they
indicate HOW one is involved: communication (III House), work (VI House), ideology (IX
House), mystery (XII House);
Beside, the kind of the
Planet, as much as the principal axis of the Chart - AS, DS, MC e FC - do permit also to
establish the single characteristics of people who are involved and to whom we are
referring. But let's see, about it, some concrete examples.
(fig. 1) HILLARY AND BILL CLINTON
The sentimental facts which
have involved the U.S. President Bill Clinton since the start of his Presidency (just
remember the Jennifer Flowers's declarations which tried to compromise his imagine, which
were followed those by Paula Jones to reach the last ones by Monica Lewinsky) have spotted
not only the U.S. President's difficulty to hold under control his instinctual impulses,
but, instead, his wife's no doubted ability who in at least two cases cases, Flowers and
Lewinsky, had to intervene personally, and firmly, in her husband's defence
"repairing" his imagine and demonstrating what it was whispered, since the start
of Clinton's political comparison: the real President of the USA is just her,
But let's go to see what the
Integrate Chart says.
The Ascendant is placed in
Capricorn and this, beside checking out how it must be a relationship "with
head", which permits to put together the own ambitions for a common goal. It also
means the need to overcome together hard proves which can come out along the common
Ambition and conscience of
the own duty permeate the respective promises and each one will take the own cross, even
in very hard situations. But when one of the two doesn't respect the rules, the other
rebukes him, making born in him guilty senses.
Even the sun position inl II
sector points a very much energies employ to build a common activity which, due to this
sector's characteristic, will tend to the research of security, maintenance and social
Ben delineate dal Tema anche
le rispettive caratteristiche dei due patner: Venere in I difatti indica come la natura di
Bill sia prettamente edonista, molto sensuale, che da importanza al contatto fisico e alla
sessualita', dando origine a una eccessiva sicurezza di se'.
On the contrary, with Saturn
and Pluto in VII, Hillary certainly couldn't limestone the stereotype, inside the couple,
of the sweet, affectionate and passive woman
Instead, she appear well-determined,
with very sjiny rationality (Saturn) but also charismatic and able (Pluto). Just Saturn,
then, is in splendid position, forming trines both to Sun and Jupiter, the first one, as
we have already seen, placed in II and the second one in X, the House of the success. It
appars at this point more than permissible deducing that has just been Hillary to point on
her husband's political career, projecting on him all ambition of her.
The Solar Return valid until
next March places the accent on a really hard year for the couple (Sun, rogether with
Venus (!) conjunct to the ASC of the Solar Return, Saturn and Mercury in I but as most
Mars, ruler of S.R. ASC, placed in VI sector, that one notoriously connected to scandals,
just in opposition to conjunction Sun-Venus! And even that one which will start next March
is not better, with ASC of S. R. in VI House radix and Sun at MC, position this one famous
for upside-downs in social position, when not supported by good figures. Well, if we think
that both Bill's S R. and that one of Hillary do present strong signals of "house
. It seems quite probable that further scandals will put really at
hard prove Hillary's charismatic ability, which won't avoid a definitive impichment of her
(fig. 2) BARRETT-BROWNING
This couple presents, first of all, a Scorpio ASC. Which underlines how, in the
relationship, the attraction has been immediate and has pushedto the dependency by the
partner since the first introducing.
The Sun, placed in VI House, the Health and the
Work one, points a business relationship, more than a love one, in which each one puts
himself at the other's service the own capacity of negotation, initiative and adaptation.
The logic plays a conclusive role and it often
takes to a breakdown of the relationship in a friendly and rational way or to remarkable
advantages which come from the own partner.
This solar position often means a relationship
where the two involved are kept together by a health problem (we remember, about this,
that Elisabeth, when she was 15 yrs. old had a horse accident which let her a permanent
disability all her life long, beside her weak constitution was hit by a pulmonary disease
and she was obliged to the infirmity one year long). Consequently, one helps the other,
being at his/her service. In any case, one is a lot worried about the partner, being
afraid that something of negative can happen to the relationship.
The presence of Venus in VII House is however
the most indicative of true love. The most younger partner, that's Robert, is probably
appeared to Elisabeth as very handsome and sexy.
The harmony and the common sensations seem
having been the most important thing in the relationship, seeking to eviscerate all
problems in oreder to find an according point which won't create tensions and contrasts.
The relationship has surely also appreciated
social contacts, the theatre, the concerts, the Opera, valorising the joy of life.
The Moon in III House underlines the big need
to exchange ideas, telling each other everything of own experiences. The intellectual
interest prevails on emotions and the relationship's nature results having been
prevalently psychic. Beside, there also is a big feeling to change, to moove, to make
trips together (we remember that, just married, they escaped to Italy).
The relationship's culmination into the
marriage is well expressed by the Sun making trine to MC which indicates, neside, the way
this couple has taken itself to the footlight in the public opinion. Sun is the planet
meaning vitality and joy of life so it means that both have loved each other, finding in
the partner the most important thing of the own life.
This is one of the best aspects and puts in
evidence the way the relationship was born under a good star.
The opposition Sun-Mars however, also puts in
light the way, in practise, the partner was seen sometimes as competitor.
Beside it, the Sun-Moon square means how the
woman's emotionalism (Moon) has felt hindered by the other's characteristic (Sun) for
realisation of herself.
Vitality and joy of life of one of the partners
can also have disturbed the other causing, at the end, envy. By the way, it was kept the
deep wish to stay together.
