I am interested in researching how people experience their small aspect pattern charts in their lives. I myself have this kind of chart with the longest aspect being a trine. I have read that with the inner circle so exposed to the environment and the outside world, the native may experience life as though energy from those empty houses, is almost sucked into the inner circle like a vacuum. This energy goes straight to our core!
For me I have found my life to be somewhat controlled by others and it has taken me many decades to attempt to take control back in my life and forge my own path. The empty houses in my chart go from the 6th anti clockwise round to the first house. I only have the 2nd through to the 5th houses tenanted with planets. My comfort zone has always been pretty narrow, wanting to stay with what I already have in the sanctuary of my own home and family but also with a desire to share my sanctuary with someone. I have always had a strong interest in sports and competitions which I think satisfied a 5th house need for me to perform in some capacity.
I have experienced much difficulty through life and I believe this could be in part due to learning to deal with the impositions, restrictions and demands that have come at me from these empty spaces. i.e. my partner, authority figures, parental figures, higher learning and developing my own ideas and way of thinking, spirituality, large groups of people i.e. clubs and associations, a need to develop my own personality etc. My childhood was very narrow and blinkered and in some ways closeted and I was not exposed to many learning experiences. Into adulthood, my expectation that life would be all I had gleaned from childhood, was soon quashed, and year after year would bring unfamiliar experiences that pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone.
Finally at 64 I feel I have come to grips with all this. I have always been listening and trying to learn from what my life has presented to me and at last it feels as though the pieces of the puzzle are now in place. I know there is much more ahead for me to learn but I finally feel much more grounded within myself and not like a leaf on a choppy sea.
I would be really interested in hearing other people’s experiences of their chart with a small aspect pattern.
Note that there is a piece by Louise Huber on Small Aspect Patterns in the book ‘Aspect Pattern Astrology’ section 6.6, on page 233 of edition 2.

I too have all of my planets in an exact 120 degree span of houses 2 through 5…(beginning with pluto 2 Scorpio in the 2nd ending with sun at 2 pisces (actually conjunct to the min my 6th house cusp)
I have never felt more out of body than I have just now reading your article…..I couldn’t figure out if you wrote it or if I was in another parallel time and it was actually me.
To say the least some difference I’m 38 and I’ve endured the struggles of many thousands of lives in just these 38 years…..sometimes I wonder if I ended up with the entire universe karma (probably all my water placements feeling every energy)
I have a tattoo it is my favorite of all of my 50+ tattoos…..and it’s the one I get the most comments on…it reads “no one person should witness the struggle I have seen” and boy I didn’t know the half of it when I got the damn thing…..
I would love to explore this topic more please feel free to contact me
