Planets in houses individual charts and synastry meaning
The beginning of every astrology analysis is creating a birth chart; this is a chart of the sky at a certain moment. The most common analysis is of birth charts of individuals, determining their personality and possible life events.
The placements of the planets in a birth chart can give us insight about the most important areas in some person’s life, where likely most of their attention and actions will be focused.
Houses containing planets show which areas are considered most important. These areas will be under the influence of the planets placed inside them.
Besides analysis of individual charts, astrology can make a comparative analysis of two birth charts to determine the nature of a certain relationship between two people. This is done through synastry analysis, which is an astrology technique for analyzing relationships.
When it comes to houses in synastry, the most important houses are the ones where the other person’s planets fall in. These houses reveal which areas of life are most likely affected by the relationship.
The houses of the birth chart have different areas of rulership; they rule our appearance, our personality traits, behavior, interests, relationships, parents, children, siblings, family members, surroundings, neighborhood, education, travels, social life, health, etc.
There are 12 houses in the birth chart; each with different areas it covers. Houses from 1 to 6 are personal and houses from 7 to 12 are interpersonal houses.
The houses from 1 to 3 are houses of our personal identity; the houses from 4 to 6 are houses of our integration into society; the houses from 7 to 9 are houses of our awareness of other people and the houses from 10 to 12 are houses of our social expression.
Another division of houses in the birth chart is on angular (cardinal), succedent (fixed) and cadent (mutable).
