Planets in houses – individual charts and synastry meaning
Every analysis in astrology starts with making a natal chart. To make a natal chart date, time and place are required, and they are usually the data of someone’s birth, although any other moment in time with significance can be used to create a natal chart and can be astrologically analyzed to get the desired information.
The natal chart represents the positions of the planets on the sky in that particular moment. These planets are placed in the 12 houses of the natal chart. The houses with planets inside are the ones with most information about the person’s traits, interests, events, etc.
They show where the most activities will be focused as well as the person’s attention. The planets within the house have a strong impact on the areas ruled by that house.
In synastry houses and planets inside them are also very important. Synastry is a technique that analyses relationships and their lasting power. When planets from one natal chart, fall into the natal chart of another person, these houses reveal the areas of life where the relationship will most likely affect that person.
The houses of the chart rule various areas of our lives, our behavior, physical appearance, our health and physical condition, interests, character, ancestors, beliefs, education, travel, partners and relationships, enemies, friends, social life, parents, children, our siblings, finances, business and profession, etc.
The main division of houses is on angular (cardinal), succedent (fixed) and cadent (mutable). Also, houses from 1 to 6 are considered personal and houses from 7 to 12 are considered interpersonal.
