Marc Edmund Jones first discussed Bowl Temperament Types in his book “The Guide to Horoscope Interpretation,” which can be found at affordable prices on AbeBooks. AbeBooks is not an Amazon affiliate but one of the few independent book publishers on the Net, so most search engines do not give their results.. AbeBooks has phenomenal prices, but they do not accept PayPal. You can purchase the basic Marc Jones library, which includes the Guide to Horoscope Interpretation & How to Learn and How and Why Astrology Works, for about $20.00. This includes either the Essentials or the Sabian Symbols, both of which cost about $25.00 each without shipping. [/mfn]
Rimless Bowls are “open” patterns because of their lack of an outer opposition. Thus, these patterns never have oppositions. That lack makes them rather indeterminate because they can neither organize nor delegate, so they tend to float along with the crowd.
There are few rimless bowls in the posted Sabian Earth natals, though many in weekly events. One thing is noticeable and whereever the rim should have appeared is where they get their greater emphasis. Look at Myra Hindley, a rimless bowl, whose only double planetted house in the twelfth. This is a good proxy for her life behind bars and her own self-destruction for going along with wheelbarrow murderer Ian Brady.
With a rim opposition
President Donald Trump, Caroline Kennedy,Eleanor Roosevelt and Barbra Streisand are among some natives I have rectified, that have rim oppositions. They are called in the essays just “bowls”. If a bowl does not have a rim opposition, neither will it not have any oppositions in its chart. Buckets are another Temperament Type that may or may not have a rim opposition.
Clarence Darrow, the real life counterpart of Saul Goodman from AMC’s Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, is a deviated bowl.
