The Meaning of Astrological Houses
Astrological houses are fields that constitute horoscopes; astrological charts are divided into houses.
Each horoscope consists of four quadrants, divided into three sections. Therefore, we have twelve astrological houses. Each house represents a field of life.
Depending on what planets mark a particular house, that specific field of life would ‘manifest’ itself one way or another.
If there were empty houses, which does not mean nothing would happen in that area of life. In case the house was empty, you should look for the position of the ruler of the house.
Houses are divided into three groups. There are angular, succedent and cadent houses.
Houses are also divided by four elements into Fire, Air, Water and Earth Houses. Today we talk about one angular Fire house, the Fifth House.
