There are no chart placements or aspects that spell out narcissism. There are, however, challenging aspects that can result in the condition if not well-met. In sign quincunxes between Pluto or Chiron and personal planets are ripe for this challenge. That does not mean the person will become a narcissist. What it means is that they are faced with the challenge of integrating their shadow or damage with who they are truly born to be. Other challenges to the natal chart with these planets can, I suspect, also result in narcissism when the energy is not resolved, but the quincunx is the most difficult to integrate.
One way to spot a narcissist is through the chart. Are they expressing the placement of their personal planets or something else? Someone who is expressing a personal planet in that placement’s negative energy is not a narcissist. They’re just an asshole.
To be a whole person you don’t have to like yourself or even be likable; you just have to BE yourself. Learning to like yourself just makes it all work better.
Reply from a 6Virgin/5Lion/4Caretaker who has daily ‘aha’ moments about Astrology in her sleep, who WILL take this great post to the masses: 6TheUnseenPanicker: My pre-scanning methods found no typos, so it’s ok if I keep reading this to the end; 5TheHairDresser: Ok, gang, now everyone take their places, synchronize your stopwatches, and most of all memorize what I’m about to say while you jealously watch me perform/read WanderGeist’s “The Zodiac Signs of Narcissism” up on stage. And only then will you be allowed to remove my makeup. 4_TheSoupMaker: OKOK, enough boys/girls/frogs; you can read this page only after you’ve cleaned your rooms! To WanderGeist – u appear 2 b BANGON!

Oops, see how the Virgo in me, who takes at least 14.8 nanoseconds to reply, ALWAYS has to review past posts to find that error she knows is there, and who feels decidedly vindicated….my error, I should’ve said BangOn to Botanica!
