Planets in houses – individual charts and synastry meaning

Astrology analysis begins with making a natal chart; this is the chart of the sky and planetary positions at a certain moment in time. The chart has 12 houses where the planets are placed.

The interpretation of the chart consists of analyzing the chart rulers (the planet rulers of the Sun and Ascendant sign), the rulers of the houses (planets rulers of the signs on the top of the house), the aspects between the planets, the meaning of the planets inside the houses and in different signs of the Zodiac, etc.

By analyzing these details, the astrologer can get the answers to any question.

The process of making a natal chart in the past required time and knowledge; nowadays it takes only inserting the necessary data into a computer program and the chart is out in seconds.

That means that anyone can make their own natal chart, but they cannot interpret it accurately without the help of a skilled and knowledgeable astrologer.

Each house rules different areas of life; the ones with planets are the most important because they reveal additional details about someone’s personality, possible future events, and the focus of attention and activity.

The planets inside the houses add their meaning and energy to the meaning of these houses and the areas they rule.

Astrology can be used to determine the outcomes of relationships and compatibility between people.

This is done by a technique called synastry. In synastry analysis the astrologer compares the natal charts of the partners to determine how compatible they are and whether it is likely that their relationship will be lasting.

The planets from one chart placed inside the other partner’s chart reveal the impact of the relationship on the partners.

The houses in the natal chart rule various life areas, such as our health, physical condition, education, profession, career, business, work, coworkers, friends, interests, communication skills, social circle, hobbies, interests, abilities, talents, parents, children, brothers and sisters, enemies, home, family, finances, partners, relationships, etc.
