Astrology is a valuable source of data and it cannot be ignored. It gives us valuable information about people and our surroundings we cannot easily acquire.
It can give us information about personalities, goals, interests, preferences, possible difficulties people could encounter during their lifetime, outcomes of situations or relationships, as well as many other questions.
Through the analysis of a natal chart, which is an image of the sky in some moment of interest, the astrologer can discover many details about someone or about some situation.
Planets in houses – individual charts and synastry meaning
The creation of a natal chart is the first step the astrologer takes when doing an astrology analysis. In earlier times, this was a time-consuming task, and the calculations often weren’t very accurate.
After the creation of astrology computer programs the astrologers’ job became significantly easier. Now everyone can create their natal chart in a matter of seconds after inserting the required data.
The interpretation of a natal chart still requires a skilled astrologer with a lot of experience and knowledge of astrology.
The natal chart is composed of 12 houses where the planets are positioned. The houses which have planets inside are the most significant for the astrologer, because they give insight about the person’s interests and focus of attention and activity.
These houses can help the astrologer predict details about the person’s life and possible events they could encounter.
The astrologer generally analyzes the natal chart by analyzing the chart rulers (planets rulers of the Sun and Ascendant sign), the house rulers (planets rulers of the signs on the top of the house), the planets in signs, the aspects between the planets, as well as the positions of planets inside the houses and their meanings; there are other techniques which are used in astrology analysis that give more details, but these mentioned are sufficient to answer most of our questions.
The planets placed inside a house influence that house and the areas ruled by that house with their energy and meaning.
Through analyzing the houses and the planets inside them, the astrologer discovers many details about a person, such as their personal traits, behavior, appearance, beliefs, interests, education, family, parents, children, siblings, friends, enemies, neighbors, profession, work, career, communication skills, coworkers, physical condition, health, relationships, partners, travel, finances, social life, etc.
