You may notice that your birth chart takes a general configuration or shape. These 'chart shapes' are often distinguished from 'chart patterns' such as the Grand Cross, Grand Trine, etc. Chart Shapes don't necessitate that planets be in aspects with particular degrees to one another. Rather they describe how planets clump together or generally spread out through different parts of the chart.
Not all charts have chart shapes, and fewer still have clearly defined chart shapes. If the chart shape is not obvious, then it is not likely to be as important as other predominant characteristics of the chart.
Even when it is obvious, note that meaning of chart shapes can be quite general and abstract. They provide the backdrop of the assortment of characters (ie planets) that compose them.
