Many people neglect and underestimate the value and importance of astrology as a means to find out more details about someone’s personality, personal preferences, interests, beliefs, appearance, character, focus in life, outcomes of situations and relationships, and other matters of interest.
Astrology is an ancient study of the stars; our ancestors realized the importance of the stars and planets for our existence and they studied it and recorded their gained insights and knowledge in this study they called astrology.
Planets in houses individual charts and synastry meaning
The first step in doing astrology analysis is discovering the planetary positions in a moment of time which interests us; this is usually the moment when someone was born.
To do that, the astrologer creates a natal chart for that particular moment.
The natal chart represents the image of the sky in that moment in time. It consists of 12 houses where the planets are placed.
The houses with planets inside have more significance and give more insight than the ones which are void of planets. The planets in the houses reveal where the person’s focus throughout their life is likely to be and where they will tend to concentrate most of their activities.
The areas ruled by these houses will also be influenced by the energy of the planets placed inside the houses.
When it comes to houses in synastry analysis, the situation is similar. Synastry is a technique used in astrology to analyze relationships and their potential by comparing the natal charts of the two people in relationship.
The planets of one chart placed in the houses of the other chart reveal which areas of life are likely to be affected by the relationship.
The houses in a birth chart all have different areas of rulership; they rule our appearance, family members, our parents, siblings, and children, our health, personality, surroundings, neighbors, ancestors, partners, relationships, health, physical condition, our social life, etc.
The 12 houses are divided in various types. The first six (from 1 to 6) are personal houses, and the other six (from 7 to 12) are interpersonal houses.
The houses of personal identity are the houses 1, 2, and 3; the houses of integration in the surroundings are the houses 4, 5, and 6; the houses of awareness of others are the houses 7, 8, and 9; the houses of our social integration are the houses 10, 11, and 12.
Houses are also divided in angular, succedent and cadent group. To the first group belong houses 1, 4, 7, and 10; to the second group belong houses 2, 5, 8, and 11, and to the third group belong houses 3, 6, 9, and 12.
Moon – Basic Qualities
The planet Earth has only one natural satellite, and that is the Moon. Just like the Sun, the Moon is very important for human life and life on Earth in general.
There is a general belief related to the Moon’s formation; namely, it is believed that the Moon formed from the debris that was left after the Earth collided with an asteroid around 4.5 billion years ago.
Some people don’t believe this story is true and have a theory that the Moon is artificially made by alien beings.
Whichever theory about the Moon’s creation is true no one can neglect or underestimate the importance of this astronomical body for our planet. It moves very fast around the Earth, and it takes about 27.5 days to make a full circle.
During that time, the Moon passes through the 12 Zodiac signs. In astrology, the Moon rules the sign Cancer; its fall is in Scorpio; its detriment is in Capricorn, and its exaltation is in Taurus.
The Moon is the ruler of the subconscious mind, our emotions and feelings, our intuition and inner being, our memories, and the women in our lives, especially our mother, our motherly instincts and our femininity.
Moon people are very emotional and easily hurt; they are fragile and need careful handling, because they might easily misinterpret other people’s behavior as insulting and hurtful. That can be bothersome for people who are interacting with them. They are also prone to mood swings and often have a demanding behavior.
On the other side, these people, although having some unpredictable emotional outbursts, have a caring and giving nature; they are protective to the ones they love and care about and would do anything to make them happy.
These people can have a major issue with their tendency towards holding onto the past and hurtful memories.
They can hold their resentment towards someone for a long time, refusing to forgive and forget about it so they could move on with their lives. They need to learn to control their emotionality, or they might end up wasting a lot of time in their lives chocking themselves in negativity.
Moon people are usually withdrawn and shy. They need a lot of getting to know someone before they can relax in their presence and let them close.
These people enjoy spending time at home and their home is usually their favorite place; they enjoy being there surrounded by friends and their family. It’s not easy visiting these people, because you need to earn their trust before getting the invitation.
They can be clingy and behave in a demanding manner, which is a big problem, especially in relationships where they need a partner who is willing to tolerate such behavior.
Moon people are generally intuitive and able to intuitively sense what someone’s thinking or feeling, as well as predict future events.
The position of the Moon in the birth chart reveals the areas of comfort, where a person feels their best.
Also, the Moon position in the chart reveals a lot about our mother and her personality, as well as our relationship with her. The Moon in our chart also reveals our relationship with our home and describes how it looks.
