HOUSES1.jpg

You have begun to understand your luminaries, planets, angles, points and the signs they are in. Now you will continue working with the signs, this time focusing on their connection to your astrological Houses. The houses are a way of dividing the chart into 12 sections, all of which represent different areas and concepts of life. The sign in which these areas fall will affect them in different ways.

-To begin you will place your First, Second and Third House cards into position.

 

-Using your chart and personal placement sheet, find what sign your First, Second and Third House are in and pull the corresponding Sign card for each.

 

-Add the Element and Modality cards that are shown on each of the Sign cards pulled.

 

-Open to the First, Second and Third House pages in your Alterlife Journal. Combine and analyze the keywords and concepts on your cards and take notes. You will come back to each of these pages, but this will begin your basic understanding of your houses and the signs they're in. Make sure to note the planet that is on the Sign card you pull for every house. This planet is considered the ruler of that sign and therefor the ruler of that house in your chart.

 

Ex: For First House in Scorpio you would place the House card for the First House, then pull the Sign card for Scorpio. This card will indicate the element and modality that corresponds to Scorpio (in this case the element is Water, the modality is Fixed). This combination of cards will give you an initial understanding of the First House in the sign of Scorpio placement. Since the ruling planet for Scorpio is Pluto, in this case the First House would be “ruled by” Pluto.

 

Note: This is just one part of your natal chart. There can be other factors that completely over power or contradict the above information. If something doesn’t resonate at all, it is very possible you have an emphasis on another, opposing area in your chart. As you continue to break down your various placements, it will all fall into place.
