Astrology Signs: Aries-Pisces 12 Houses

Updated on July 23, 2014

The Twelve Houses

The 12 Houses in Astrology

The 12 houses play an important part of your astrology horoscope. Each house rerpesents a different area in your life. This is one of the key components for Astrologers to read your astrological chart. Each house is headed by a sign on the zodiac. And the area in life is often important to that particular sign. So read on and learn a bit more about Astrology and how it can help you find out about yourself, others and life.

the Zodiac of 12 signs always starts with Aries and ends with Pisces. The 12 houses of Astrology start with Aries as the 1st house. The twelve houses cover every aspect of your life. On the day your were born the planets were lined up in each house or (area) of your life. The aspects of planets and houses is just one way to determine your basic personality, drives and future trends.

For example if you are a Libra you rule the 7th house which is the area of partnership and contracts. This does not mean you will have partnerships and contracts but how they come into play in your life. Astrology can be complicated, and there are so many facets in a chart. And every Astrologer interprets astrological horoscopes totally different.

I just wanted to share the information about houses particularly if you ever choose to have your Astrology chart read.

Information on Basics of Astrology

Zodiac sign: Your basic personality, goals and ego. The zodiac sign is determined only by the day you were born.

Moon Sign: Emotional personality, food choices, relationships. Your moon sign is determined by the day you were born regardless of the month. The moon changes positions every 2.5 days. To find your moon sign you would have to check with an Ephemeris--position of sun and moon through the years.

Rising Sign: This is how the world sees you and not always who you are inside. To determine your rising sign the day, month, year, place and time of birth is required.

When doing an Astrological reading the first house begins with your rising sign and the rest of the houses follow in order of the zodiac.

I just wanted to clarify for informational purposes that everyone has a different sign on their first house which has tremendous influence on your personal chart. I hope this offers some clarification.

1st House with Natural Ruler Aries

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and rules the first house. As the ego oriented Aries this house is the representation of the basic personality, goals, dreams and personal challenges.. The first house is also representational of your appearance your demeanor.

On your personal astrological chart the first house in your chart will have a different sign representing it. Thoroughly confused? This is where Astrology gets interesting and makes everyone an individual.

2nd House ruled by Taurus

Taurus is ruler of the second house. The second house is the house of money-- not just the accumulation of dollars but deep feelings about money, security and money dealings. The signs and planets that fall into this house (when doing an astrological chart) determine how you feel about money and possessions. There will also be a determination of luck and accumulation of money.

The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac

3rd House Gemini the Natural Ruler

The third house is about travel, writing, communication and relationships with brothers and sisters. This is why Geminis are often excellent communicators. Geminis are the ruler of this house and they do have a way with words and are very adept at getting their point across This house will also help determine your relationships with siblings When the house has positive aspects the person will also be excellent in many sports especially with hand-eye coordination.

The 4th House Ruled By Cancer

This house is your home and your heritage. The house also reveals your relationship with your father.The house shares how you feel about your home in an emotional and physical way. Most Cancer people value their home and treat it lovingly with plants and lovely decorations. They enjoy activities in the home and spending time with family. Most Cancer people are fiercely loyal to their families.

5th House Ruled By Leo

This house is about creativity, recreation and hobbies. Are you a lucky gambler? Well if you have well aspected planets you may be. It touches a bit on love affairs and relationships with children. This is the fun and pleasant house on the zodiac.

6th House Ruled By Virgos

This house is about work and the type of work you select as well as your working environment. This can include working in your home. This house also is about your mental and physical health. And it does include pets..the type you want and how you feel about furry creatives. Food an diet choices fall into the 6th house.

7th House Libra

The 7th house represents marriage and partnerships. It is also a determining factor in your choice of mates and how you respond and treat them. The 7th house is directly opposite the 1st hours which is the self. It is also partnership in any form whether business or marriage or even contractual agreements. On a deeper level it represents what is important to you in a partner. an intimate relationship and friendships.

Hidden secrets and your subconscious mind are part of the 12th house. This house represents the inner challenges you will face in your lifetime. The 12th house sometimes holds what negative experiences we have had and how we dealt with them. Sometimes in life we have determined we had bad luck when it was merely a learning experience. It also relates to places of confinement. Not this does not mean you are going to prison.

I hosted my own radio show and had regular TV spots, as well as appearing regularly on a major radio station in the city. I was keynote speaker for many conventions and also put together compatibility charts that appeared in mail-order catalogs. I designed a graphic interpretation of each sign (shown above) and they went on T-shirts and tote bags which I sold throughout the United States. I also did complete personal graphic astrological pieces for special orders. I am currently doing personal Astrological Horoscopes for clients.

      It is really simple..however you have to know how a chart is set up. There are twelve houses in our lives that covers all that is and happens to us. Family, friends, ambition, mother, father, travel, education, partnership etc. And how the planets are aligned today in conjunction where the planets were when you were born helps determine trends in different areas in your life.

      Hi Carol

      I really had no idea that there is so much to know about astrology. You must have had some really interesting experiences as an astrologer. I have never used the services of one but think it would be something I would like to try.

      thanks for sharing with us...Sending you many Angels this evening. :) ps

      Carol, this was fascinating! You really let us into the ins and outs of astrology. When I was young I used to pour over the astrology magazines that mum brought home. Found the subject very mysterious, something that you always want to know more about! Thanks for sharing these nuggets here.

      I have a daughter and an aunt who both do astrology charts. I wonder if having someone non-related do mine would make a difference :)

      UberGeekGirl: Knowing someone well makes it very difficult to be objective while doing a chart. I rarely do close friends and family. I like the objectivity about not knowing someone. Hope that answers.

Life changes a lot ..and we have successes and failures. Thanks for asking as I always enjoy sharing.
