TWELVE HOUSES IN ASTROLOGY EXPLAINED

ZODIAC SIGNS

Houses

In Astrology, there are three main factors which bring to us the message of the stars—the houses, the signs and the planets.

Each house represents a department of life. The signs are divisions of the heavens which by their placement relative to the houses indicate our basic temperament and attitude towards life. The planets are the messengers which by their motion through the houses and signs bring to us the opportunities for soul growth which we need for our individual development.

Think of the planets as representing the players in a play. The signs, then, would describe the role that each player has and how he expresses his character, the houses represent the various settings of the play and the angular relationships between the planets, the aspects, represent the plot of the play. Each planet has a characteristic energy. That energy can be expressed either positively or negatively. The way that energy is expressed is determined by the aspects of the other planets to that particular planet.

Here you will find a detailed description of every house and what message it brings. And to learn everything about placements of planets by houses in your Natal Horoscope, do your
