Planets In The Houses

Planets In The Houses


First a reminder of the concerns of each House in your Chart. Houses are areas or segments numbered in an anticlockwise sequence and refer to particular well established interests identified not only through tradition but verified by astrological research over many recent decades e.g.

1st refers to appearance and personality (this house or segment begins on the left horizon and downward 30°) Mars in the 5th house  followed by…..
2nd possessions and finance
3rd family, mental interests and travel
4th domestic and property
5th pleasures and education
6th health and service
7th marriage and partnerships
8th life plans, deaths and legacies
9th philosophy and religion
10th career and worldly status
11th social life and friendships
12th limitations and karmic difficulties

Planets are named in Astrology – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and still includes Pluto as a planet. If, say your First House – that is the house that is in the process of appearing above the horizon- shows the presence of one of the planets it will influence, modify or intensify the existent influence of the zodiacal sign claiming that segment. The same applies to each House. The following provides examples only.
