The 12 Astrological Houses And What They Mean

Disclaimer

The astrological houses is a system used by astrologers like me to help interpret a birth chart. A birth chart, or natal chart, uses the exact date, time, and location of your birth to create a snapshot of how the sky looked at the moment of your birth. The zodiac chart is divided into 12 houses of the zodiac in total, each representing a different area of life. The houses are divided into two groups: the first six houses are known as personal houses and the last six houses are known as interpersonal houses.

The personal houses represent the individual's physical and personality traits, while the interpersonal houses represent the individual's relationships with other people.

Each of the 12 houses has a different meaning, and astrologers use them to interpret a birth chart. The first house, for example, represents the self, while the second house represents finances and possessions. The third house represents communication and the fourth house represents home and family.

The fifth house represents love and creativity, while the sixth house represents work and health. The seventh house represents relationships, and the eighth house represents death and rebirth. The ninth house represents higher education and philosophy, while the tenth house represents career and public status.

The eleventh house represents friends and community, and the twelfth house represents spirituality and the unconscious. By interpreting the birth chart using the 12 houses, astrologers can gain insight into an individual's personality, relationships, and spiritual path.

A rising sign, also known as an ascendant, is the sign of the zodiac that is rising on the eastern horizon at the time of birth. The rising sign represents the beginning of the astrological houses and sets the tone for the rest of the natal chart. The rising sign is an important factor in determining a person's overall personality and destiny. It is the most sensitive part of your birth chart as it is the start of your chart and it directly aligns with you minute and second of birth.
