Planets in houses individual charts and synastry meaning
The analysis in astrology starts with creating a natal chart, which represents a chart of the sky in some specific moment in time; this moment is usually someone’s birth.
The positions of the planets in this natal chart reveal the areas of strongest focus and action. These areas will be influenced by the energy of the planets placed in these houses.
In synastry analysis, which is an astrology technique that analyses relationships and their potential, the charts of the partners are analyzed and compared.
The astrologer especially pays attention to positions of the planets from one chart placed in the houses of the other chart because they reveal the areas where the relationship is most likely to influence that person.
The houses in the birth chart govern different areas of life, such as our personal appearance, individuality, character, relationships with other people, personal relationships, our parents, siblings and children, our surroundings and neighbors, our friends, education, health, travels, social life, etc. Every house covers different areas it rules over.
The natal chart consists of 12 houses; the houses 1 – 6 are considered personal houses, and the houses 7 – 12 are considered interpersonal.
The first three houses (1, 2 and 3) are considered houses of personal identity; the second group of houses (4, 5 and 6), are considered houses of integration into the environment; the third group of houses (7, 8 and 9) are considered houses of awareness of others, and the fourth group of houses (10, 11 and 12) are considered houses of social expression and integration in Society.
There is also a division of houses on angular or cardinal (1, 4, 7 and 10), succedent or fixed houses (2, 5, 8 and 11), and cadent or mutable houses (3, 6, 9 and 12).
