These photos show the point of the research study.
Some of the closer resemblances may be due to finer detailed factors, such as the four sub-groups created by the shared house positions, planets in the First House, Ascendant rulers, etc. See the abstract for details.

These photos were selected for the clearest similarities.
Most photos share the same Sun, Moon & Ascendant.
However, in this view some of the photos have been grouped together with photos from adjacent ascendant rows with speculation about the accuracy of the calculation of the listed ascendant. The ascendant changes within an hour or two. It can be difficult to ascertain the ascendant accurately because of several unavoidable factors (See the abstract for details). Astrologers use the techniques of 'chart rectification' for the purpose of correcting a chart for errors in finding the ascendant.
If you do not know your own sun, moon and ascendant, you can visit these sites and draw up your chart.
You can mouse over photos or click on them to view larger copies. Keep in mind the inconsistent quality of the photographs and the general limitations of a single photo to capture the features and expression.

We may eventually be able to sort out and correctly assign the erroneously labeled photos since most of the errors will be due to birthtimes recorded near the first or last degrees of the ascending sign. Those that fall in the middle of the sign are more likely to have been correctly recorded & calculated. Therefore most of the photos in a row are likely to be labeled with the correct ascending sign. The normal ratio of "correctly recorded and calculated" might be 2/3 or even 3/4 of the total. To use this "law of averages" method we will need many photos.
