Houses And Very Brief Meanings
All astrological charts are divided into twelve 'houses' and each house governs specific areas of life. At the time of your birth, or at any time that you draw a chart, each of the main planets we use is located in one of the twelve houses. Listed below are the most general meanings for each house:
Your ego and self-identity; how you appear to the world and the first impression you make on others. Your external presentation, including physical characteristics sometimes come into play and the first house is very similar to the 'rising sign'.
Your personal finances; how you build resources; money-matters and possessions, and your attitude to wealth in general.
Communication with others; relationships with siblings; your immediate environment; short journeys and learning in general.
Security; home and family; your childhood and ancestral roots; your experience of mother and maternal influences in general; nurture and sensitivity.
Your creative inspiration and self-expression; self-investment; risk-taking; love affairs; children; drama and ego.
Your daily life; health concerns; work and service; personal sacrifice and healing.
Your identity with regard to others; romance; marriage and partnerships of all kinds; contracts; negotiations and harmony.
Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll; other people's resources; death and inheritance; transformation and our ability to change deeply; rituals of all types and the occult
Spirituality and religion; long-distance travel; higher education; philosophy; law; publishing; expansion and luck.
Your relationship to status, authority and power; reputation; social status; career; government institutions; corporations; the father and other authority figures in general.
Socialising, networking and connecting; friends and your connection to humanity in general; group associations; hopes and aspirations; ideals; the media industry.
Your spiritual life and a natural connection to the universe; dreams and the unconscious; things that are hidden; music; dance; meditation; Yoga and all things metaphysical.
HOUSE PLACEMENT OF THE 'MAGIC THREE'
1. THE SUN
In a natal chart the 'house' placement of the 'Sun sign' denotes the main area of self-expression in the life of the individual. 'Aspects' to the Sun have deep significance in the life of the individual and can override the natural traits of the sign.
2. THE MOON
The 'house' placement of the Moon denotes the areas of experience that play a dominant role in our emotional lives. It shows the things we are most drawn to in order to gain emotional equilibrium and increase emotional wellbeing.
The Moon's placement:
- Triggers any childhood issues.
- Indicates unresolved past-life problems.
- Together with its sign, indicates our subconscious nature.
- Is a strong psychic imprint of the past.
- Gives much insight into a person's psyche.
The 'South node' of the Moon in an astrological chart describes behaviour patterns from the past.
The 'North node' of the Moon indicates the karmic direction you are evolving toward as you progress in life.
3. THE RISING SIGN
The 'rising sign' shows:
- Your direct personality or how others perceive you (also known as the true you!).
- How you appear to the world and the first impression you make on others. Your external presentation, including physical characteristics, sometimes comes into play here.
The 'first house' is similar to the 'rising sign'.
- You will need your time of birth to calculate the 'rising sign and the 'houses'.
- Initially there is no need to study complex astrological 'aspects'. In Dynamic Astrology we have simplified it all. Squares; oppositions; conjunctions; trines etc. all cause the signs to either 'go wrong' or 'go right'.
- With awareness you can change your experiences in life!
