The sky is divided in to twelve sectors, each known as a house. The houses are not heavenly or star systems but they neatly cover every area of human development.
The house in which a planet or a constellation lies is important as it gives a clue to the area that will be influenced. The planet shows how something will manifest, the constellation gives the manner of its manifestation and the house indicates what it will affect.
First House: Birth
The first house represents your basic personality, physical health, the way you reveal yourself to others around you and your physical appearance.
Second House: Possessions
The second house represents what you own. It is bound up with wealth, material possessions and personal belongings. It also represents feeling.
Third House: the Mind
The third house is to do with how you think about the world, communicate ideas and how you express yourself.
Fourth House: the Home
The fourth house is about where you live: your roots, your ancestry, your parents and family.
Fifth House: Creativity
This is the house of pleasure, leisure and socializing.
Sixth House: Work
The house of employment, business, career opportunities and working relationships.
Seventh House: the Heart
The seventh is the house of relationships and love affairs, marriage and long-term partnerships.
Eighth House: Sharing
The eighth is the house of attitudes, whether on sex, money or ideas. It is where you reveal your generosity — or lack thereof.
Ninth House: The intellect
The ninth house represents how you learn: your education and upbringing but also your study as an adult in later life.
Tenth House: Personal Ambitions
This is the house of your aspirations: your dreams and goals, longings and drives.
11th House: Friendship
The 11th house is to do with how you entertain your friends and social acquaintances, and with the way you indulge your personal pleasures.
12th House: Escapism
The 12th is the house of seclusion and loneliness, death and the unconscious. It represents what you fear.
