Astrology is often underestimated and neglected in our modern society, and mostly considered a fun topic for conversation about Zodiac signs and their meanings.
Almost every person nowadays knows their Sun sign and a bit of its traits, as well as something about other Zodiac signs.
It is in human nature to want to know about their future and know the traits of people they are interested in. This is where astrology can be very useful, and most people are unaware of that.
Astrology is an ancient study formed as a result of observing the planets and their influence on human lives and the world in general. It can give information about personal traits, possible life events in the future, outcomes of situations and relationships and give answers to many other questions. There are different techniques of analysis used in astrology.
The analysis begins with a natal chart, created for a chosen moment in time; this moment is usually the moment someone was born. The natal chart has 12 houses with planetary positions in that moment placed inside these houses.
The houses and their rulers as well as the planets inside (if there are planets) give answers to different questions about various areas in the person’s life. Every house has an area of rulership.
The natal chart is calculated using a special date, time, and place for the analyzed subject. In earlier times, astrological calculations required a bit of time and knowledge, and weren’t always as accurate.
Today, with the aid of computer programs, the natal chart and other astrological calculations are done in seconds after entering the required data.
The houses in the natal chart give insight about someone’s appearance, behavior, beliefs, interests, talents, education, social circle, friends, neighbors, surroundings, home, family, family members, parents, ancestors, siblings, children, enemies, coworkers, work, profession, career, personal traits, health, physical condition, partnerships, relationships, partners, travels, finances, hobbies, etc.
The houses are divided in different categories, such as: angular, succedent, cadent; cardinal, fixed, mutable; personal and interpersonal, etc.
There are different house systems that can be used for calculating the natal chart, and it is up to the astrologer’s preferences to choose the system that suits them most based on their skills, knowledge, and experience in astrology.
Planets in houses – individual charts and synastry meaning
The houses with planets inside are the most insightful. They influence the house where they are placed with their energy and meaning.
The planets in houses show which areas of life will be the center of focus and action during the person’s life, which is why astrologers pay special attention to these houses.
Analyzing the planets in houses is very important in synastry analysis as well. Synastry is a technique in astrology used when analyzing relationships and their potential.
The astrologer compares the natal chart of two people to determine whether their characters are compatible and the possibility of their relationship being a lasting one.
The planets from one chart are placed inside the other chart to determine the influence of the relationship on the partners.
