The majority of the planets on the eastern half [the directions are backwards on an astrology chart] MC [Midheaven] to IC, this person is usually free to make their own way in life and they dislike any interference from others. They are independent, self-starters who rely upon themselves.
With the majority on the western half [IC to MC] there is a strong need for others. Others have a say regarding one's life, and in extreme cases, others can control the person's life. In rare cases, there can be dependence on others for survival, as in cases of physical handicaps.
With the majority in the northern [bottom half of the chart; the ascendant through the descendant], personal privacy is important here. This person needs time alone, along with a sense of security.
People who have the majority of their planets in the south [top half of the chart] are usually outgoing people, who are social. These people don't mind being the center of attention, or before the public. Most are extroverted and enjoy leadership roles
According to the above, the directions are backwards, which means that the first paragraph refers to the left half of the chart, while the second paragraph refers to the right half.
However, I believe it is exactly the opposite.
I know the charts of at least two people, including my own, where most of the planets are placed on the right half of the chart, and these people are more the independant type. I for example have always been a self-learner for most things and don't like to depend on even barber shops to get my hair and beard done, preferring to do it myself at home. Whatever is simple enough for me to learn and do, I prefer to do it myself.
In contrast, I know the chart of a person where most of the planets are placed on the left half of the chart, including two stelliums, and they are one of the most dependant people I've ever seen.
So, for anyone who is experienced enough in seeing this in charts, would you personally confirm or deny this?
I'm also aware that several other factors can influence this dependence on others thing.
