Planets in houses – individual charts and synastry meaning
Astrology analysis starts with creating a natal chart. This chart represents the chart of the planetary positions in some moment of time.
By analyzing this chart, the astrologer can get insight about someone’s personality, situation, relationship, or some other question. The chart consists of planets placed within 12 houses of the chart.
