Jones, Marc Edmond [Astro*Index]

Born Oct. 1, 1888, 8:37 a.m. CST in St. Louis, Missouri, died on March 5, 1980.

Marc Jones has been called the dean of American astrology, and is perhaps best twentieth century of a movement to reformulate the study of astrology.

He developed the seven categories of horoscopic patterns or distributions of the astrological planets around the zodiac, which are called the Splay, Splash, Bundle, Bowl, Locomotive, Bucket, and Seesaw shapes or patterns.

He created the Sabian Symbols with the assistance of the clairvoyant Elsie Wheeler in 1925, and in 1953 he published The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, a book that renders a specific symbol and interpretive character for each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac. Along with using them as an Oracle, the Sabian Symbols can be used in every aspect of astrology, including horary, mundane, electional and indeed for any of the zodiacal systems such as heliocentric, sidereal or draconic.
