Some examples:

Morning Star
==========================

The Morning Star Pattern is viewed as a bullish reversal pattern, usually occurring at the bottom of a downtrend. The pattern consists of three candlesticks.
The morning star is a bullish, bottom reversal pattern that is the opposite of the 
Evening Star.

Shooting Star

A shooting star is interpreted as a type of reversal pattern presaging a falling price. The Shooting Star looks exactly the same as the Inverted hammer, but instead of being found in a downtrend it is found in an uptrend and thus has different implications.
