The most important astrological planet of all is the Sun. In astrology, luminaries, the Sun and the Moon are also labeled as planets.
The Sun is the first and the most important element to look into, when you read one’s natal chart report.
The Sun represents the Self, the rational, active, manifesting and transparent part of one’s personality. The Sun defines our basic personality traits, temperament, character and attitude towards life.
People usually equate the whole horoscope with one’s Sun sign. However, the Sun sign alone does not tell everything about a person and his or her life.
There were many other elements to look into, such as astrological aspects and else. Today, we will be talking about astrological houses.
We shall see how the golden Sun, the light of our life affects the Third House and how it reflects on one’s personality and life.
The Meaning of Astrological Houses
Astrological houses are fields within an astrological chart. These fields are related to specific areas of a person’s life. Houses are affected by astrological elements you could find in them.
Planets and their energies would affect a house in a specific way and make a particular area of life more dynamic than others, for instance. This dynamic depend on planets and energies involved.
Houses that have many elements marking them would be your most dynamic life fields. Empty houses do not mean there would be no activity in that particular area of your life.
In that case, you should see into the position and aspect of a ruler of the house in question. Your astrological chart is a unique complex of many elements.
Houses in astrology could be divided into angular, succedent and cadent houses. Angular houses are the first, the fourth, the seventh and the tenth house.
Succedent are the second, the fifth, the eight and eleventh house. Cadent houses are the third, the sixth, the ninth and the twelfth house.
Astrological houses are also divided by four essential elements, so we have Fire houses, Air houses, Earth and Water houses.
