People have been obsessed with astrology and the planets since ancient times. This is a millennia old study of the planets and stars on humans and the world around us.
Our ancestors realized how they influence our lives and gathered this experience and knowledge through the centuries.
In ancient times, astrology was an important means to predict the future and give answers to people’s questions.
Nowadays, it is not as seriously taken and is mostly considered as a fun topic for conversation without understanding its true value.
The accuracy of astrology has been proven so many times. Astrology gives us answers to many questions, especially when the interpretation is done by skilled and experienced astrologers.
Astrology describes people’s characters in details and it can predict their possible future.
It can describe someone’s appearance, interests, goals, attitude, etc. It can tell us about outcomes of situations or potential of relationships.
Astrology can also be used to determine the potential of a relationship between two people.
The astrologer analyzes and compares their natal charts and the planets inside to see how compatible they are. Because of that, it is important to take it seriously and use it as a means to improve your life.
Planets in houses – individual charts and synastry meaning
The interpretation in astrology begins with making the natal chart; it is the image of the sky in the moment when the chart is created. The astrologer analyzes the placements of the planets in that moment placed inside the chart created for that moment.
These positions can describe someone’s personality, their character traits, behavior, possible events, etc. They also give answers to many other questions.
There are 12 houses in the chart; they all have different meanings and rule different areas of our life. The first house begins with the Ascendant. This is the “sign rising on the eastern horizon” in the moment of the making of the chart.
It is an important point of the chart and describes the person’s appearance and personal traits. It reveals how the person likes to be presented in public and be perceived by the public.
The houses where there are planets have the most importance. They show the astrologer where the focus of attention is and where there is likely to be the most action.
These planets influence the areas ruled by house where they are placed and give additional information about the possible events the person could experience during their lifetime.
The houses are significant in synastry analysis as well; the astrologer analyses the meanings of the planets from one chart placed inside the other chart to see how the relationship influences both partners and their lives.
The houses of the natal chart have different areas of rulership.
By analyzing their rulers and the planets inside, the astrologer can get information about someone’s character, beliefs, interests, appearance, focus, education, profession, work, career, business, coworkers, habits, hobbies, talents, home, family, parents, children, siblings, friends, enemies, social circle, communication abilities, finances, travel, partners, relationships, physical condition and health, etc.

The house in the natal chart where Saturn is placed shows which areas in life are likely to be affected with Saturn’s influence; these areas are likely the ones where the person might experience issues, obstacles, and difficulties in obtaining what they desire.
These are also the areas where the person could be obliged to take care of someone, or undertake some responsibilities, be patient, etc. These areas are often filled with some restrictions.
The time of life when the Saturn returns to its natal position after traveling through all the 12 signs of the Zodiac is called “Saturn’s return”. This usually happens in around 30 years, because it takes Saturn around 2.5 years to go through a sign.
This time of life is reserved for self-observation and self-evaluation as well as the evaluation of the achievements we have had so far. The person determines whether they are satisfied with what they’ve achieved in life or not.
The planet Saturn is the ruler of life lessons and its lessons are not easy. We usually learn them through Saturn events that happen during major transits or progressions involving this planet.
