The Astrological Body Types: Face Form and Expression
by J. Arbrams Hill

This is a great book with awesome illustratioins of different sign and planetary types.

There are many factors you can consider to find your overall dominant type.

Table of Significators of Physical Appearance in the Birth Chart
  1. Moon's sign (esp. in females)
  2. Ascending Sign
  3. Sign tenanted_____ by the planetary "ruler" ____ of the Ascending Sign _____
  4. Sun sign (beware of cusps, as people may look like the neighboring sign)
  5. The sign opposite ____ to the Sun Sign
  6. Planets nearest the Ascending degree, either side (conjunct)
  7. Any planet closely conjunct the planetary rule of the Ascendant ______ Sun ______ or Moon ______
  8. Any sign possessing two or more "personal" planets (i.e. Mercury, Venus, Mars)
  9. Any sign possessing a "stellium" of five or more planets
  10. Stationery planets: planet that appears to have no motion at birth, (mercury, venus and mars for 1 day, 1-3 days for slower planets) look at an ephemeris
  11. Dominant Element (look for at least two important indicators such as Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or ruler of Ascendant posited in one element)
  12. Dominant Mode (must be overt dominance)


Example with my chart


  1. Moon's sign: SAGITTARIUS

  5. The sign opposite _TAURUS___ to the Sun Sign (SCORPIO)
  6. Planets nearest the Ascending degree, either side (conjunct): MOON, VENUS, MARS
  7. Any planet closely conjunct the planetary rule of the Ascendant ___MOON, VENUS, MARS___ Sun ______ or Moon ___VENUS, MARS___
  8. Any sign possessing two or more "personal" planets (i.e. Mercury, Venus, Mars) VENUS AND MARS IN SAGITTARIUS
  9. Any sign possessing a "stellium" of five or more planets: NONE
  10. Stationery planets: NONE
  11. Dominant Element (look for at least two important indicators such as Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or ruler of Ascendant posited in one element): WATER, THEN FIRE
  12. Dominant Mode (must be overt dominance): MUTABLE
SAGITTARIUS 1,1,1,1   
MUTABLE

CANCER 1
SCORPIO 1
TAURUS 1

MOON 1, 1
VENUS 1, 1
MARS 1, 1

LOOKS LIKE I AM A SAGITTARIUS TYPE (AND MUTABLE)
     
 GOOGLE THE EPHEMERIS FOR THE MONTH YOU WERE BORN.

my natal Jupiter and Saturn were retrograde, but not close to direct
looks like my natal north node was direct though....

"Saturn retrograde in your natal chart can show that you don’t feel like you’re worthy of anything, and that insecurity leads you to act badly. You also keep your fears to yourself, wanting to appear strong, perhaps because someone in authority had too much power over you. You have to be patient and work hard to get what you want, but you may not be willing to dedicate yourself, especially in the areas of life ruled by the houses your Saturn is in and rules. You restrict yourself by being lazy and indulgent, which is the dark side of Jupiter, the planetary opposite of Saturn. With Jupiter retrograde, you can be too pessimistic and lack imagination, the dark side of Saturn. Usually, if you have both Saturn and Jupiter retrograde in your chart, the effects sort of cancel each other out. You generally feel them most when you only have one of these two planets retrograde." 

"Planets in Exaltation, Detriment and Fall
In addition to the planetary rulerships, there are also planets which are exalted in the signs, which again means that they are comfortable and tend to function well in those signs. The table below indicates which planets are exalted in the various signs. Planets will be in detriment, however, in signs opposite the signs they rule. Planets in detriment are traditionally considered to have difficulty operating positively in these signs. Finally, in addition to planets in detriment, planets are also said to be in their fall in certain signs, which means that they are debilitated in those signs." http://www.astro.com/mtp/mtp64_e.htm

Ha ha! I am actually a Hobby Astrologer too. But have not earned any money on it. Yet. Have studied A. to and through during about 35 years so am no rookie. I find your astrochart quite interesting. First thing I looked for was your age. Found you're a little younger than me, having Neptune a little further into Scorpio than me. Mine is on degree 6 Scorpio. My Pluto is on 3 deg. Virgo. So you have Uranus in Virgo, I have mine in middle of Leo.
Then my eyes were instantly drawn to the focus in Sagittarius. The
collection of planets there, Moon, Mars, Venus in connection with Ascendant and to each other. Two tripple quads leading to two double planets in oppositions to each other. Jupiter/PLuto in Virgo opposite Saturn/Chiron in Pisces.
And then the big trigon: lucky you!
Mars/Venus in conjunction: are you perhaps a person who intergrates masculine and feminine sides very easily?
See Venus in first house: well, what are you working with? Looks and appearances!
When it comes to 12th house - there are Moon and Mars. Can I ask
how do you cope with these placements? 12th house being so special. Things hidden.
And is your eleventh house that strong as the planets there indicates:specially Sun and Mercury. Neptune also. How does this mirror in your real life? You're group oriented? Collectivity? Are you in some way "rebellious" - meaning reb. in smaller or bigger quantities? Anyway you're directing your business toward individuals teaching them to show their individuality - also house 11. Now I think I have written enough on this.

Am specially curious of how you deal with the dynamics between 1st and 12th houses.
