Individual charts of people can give the astrologer a lot of information about the person’s interests, character, personal appearance, attitude, as well as the possible focus of their attention and the events they might experience during their lifetime.
Planets in houses – individual charts and synastry meaning
The natal chart is the first thing astrologer makes when they start an astrology analysis.
A natal chart represents an image of the sky at a particular moment of time; this moment is usually the time of someone’s birth. The data required for making the natal chart are date, time and place of birth.
The natal chart is made of 12 houses, and the angular houses 1, 4, 7 and 10 are the most important, and are considered the houses of action. The houses with planets are essential in astrology analysis because they reveal the main interests and focus of activities.
The planets influence the areas which are ruled by the house where they are placed.
In synastry, a technique used to analyze relationships and their potential, houses are also very important.
The astrologer analyses the planets from one natal chart placed in the natal chart of another person to see how the relationship will influence the house (and the planet) person.
The natal chart has 12 houses where the planets are placed.
The houses rule different matters and areas of life, like our appearance, character, attitude, beliefs, interests, profession, education, home, family members, ancestors, parents, bosses, neighbors, coworkers, friends, siblings, children, enemies, travels, health, physical condition, communication skills, social circle, surroundings, neighbors, etc.
The first 6 houses are considered personal and the other 6 houses are interpersonal. The houses 1, 2, 3 are houses of our personal identity; houses 4, 5, 6 are houses of integration in the environment; houses 7, 8, 9 are houses of consciousness of other people; houses 10, 11, 12 are houses of social expression.
Houses are also divided on: angular (1, 4, 7, 10), succedent (2, 5, 8, 11) and cadent (3, 6, 9, 12).
