This is how to calculate your astrological house

Did you know that your first house is actually your rising sign? That’s to say, the planet that was through your first house at the time of your birth. To put it simply: the circle of the 12 signs of the zodiac is divided into 12 sectors of existence also called "astrological houses".

Astrology houses

To better understand astrology, and its influence on our personality, and to be able to analyze a natal chart, it is important to know the 12 houses that represent 12 aspects of life. Each house has its own theme and is associated, depending on the individual, with an astrological sign. All this makes us different people, with different reactions and different needs.

To establish the 12 houses of astrology, we must first find your rising sign. Our 1st house is determined by our ascendant, which is calculated from your time, date, and place of birth. As you can see, if you have your 1st house in Libra, it will not have the same impact on your behavior as a person with Aries or Scorpio as their 1st house.

How can you find the order of your houses in astrology? After determining your 1st house through your ascendant, follow the order of the zodiac to find your 2nd house, 3rd house, and so on. For example, if your 1st house is in Libra, your 2nd house will be in Scorpio, your 3rd house in Sagittarius, etc.

Astrologist Susan Taylor's insights:

Houses are forms of expression of the psyche. They are the "backdrop" in which "actions" take place, the setting where signs and planets evolve, the places of fulfilment of individuality. It's said that houses receive what the planets in sign emit. In contrast, the signs represent the character with which we will approach the field concerned. The Planets correspond to the energies that are activated in the sectors of life concerned.

What do the 12 houses of astrology represent? - The meanings and symbols explained

If you choose to consult an astrologer, the expert will have to focus on certain houses and planetary aspects in order to answer your questions. For example, if you’d like to know when you’ll get pregnant, the astrologer will have to study your fifth house in your birth chart. A House represents a field of action of life and daily life, a field that is colored by the energies of the sign that 'governs' this or that house as well as the planets that are in it. The houses add subtlety and uniqueness to our astrological charts, due to the highly variable distribution of signs and planets within them - and the synergies that are created. Yes, astrology is much more complex than a simple sun sign, for those who doubted it until now. The Houses give meaning to our life paths, and they are the different workshops of your existence, the themes that you will have to experience and work on. They also allow you to deepen (even more!) your self-knowledge.

Your 1st house astrology is your ascendant

The first house corresponds to the sign of Aries. It represents your "deepest self", as well as the behavior and vitality of an individual. It’s an essential part of one’s birth chart. The degree at which the first house begins is the degree of the Ascendant.

2nd house astrology represents money, work and material goods

The 2nd house corresponds to the sign of Taurus. It directs our relationship to money and material goods, how we deal with them and their importance in our lives.

3rd house astrology embodies close entourage, small trips and studies

This house corresponds to the sign of Gemini. It represents communication and your daily surroundings (brothers, sisters, colleagues), studies (from primary to secondary school) and learning in the global sense.

4th House is known as the Heavenly Bottom and touches on family, home, heredity, Father

The 4th house is consistent with the sign of Cancer. It evokes family, the roots of an individual, and tells us a lot about their home and childhood.

5th house astrology represents love, leisure, children and creation

The 5th house corresponds to the sign of the Leo. It tells us about your relationships, hobbies, talents and your children - already born or to come. It can also represent luck at games.

6th house astrology symbolizes daily Life, work, colleagues and health

This sixth house corresponds to the sign of the Virgo. It teaches us a lot about the daily life of the subject and their behavior at work. It also concerns health, including small and unimportant illnesses.

The 7th house represents the descendant: Unions, marriage, contracts and relationships

This seventh house corresponds to the sign of the Libra. It’s very important to define your relationship with others, the way you behave and your perception of others (spouse, partner).

The 8th House stands for your passions, transformations, death, trials and sexuality

The 8th house corresponds to the sign of Scorpio. It refers to the great existential crisis causing huge upheavals in our lives. It can be about inheritance, a lawsuit, but also about sexuality, power or hidden things. In short, anything that has a mysterious side.

The 9th house is related to travel and spirituality

This 9th house corresponds to the sign of Sagittarius. It belongs to the psychological domain of an individual, it indicates great ideals, travels - both physical and psychic - and represents higher studies. It also represents astrology.

The 10th house stands for the midheaven: Social success, professional fate and motherhood

This house X corresponds to the sign of Capricorn. It embodies the career development of an individual, their ambitions in relation to his environment of origin and their achievements in society. It relates to the public and the potential for celebrity.

The 11th house evokes friendship, collective projects, support and protection 

This house XI corresponds to the sign of Aquarius. It represents friends, everything that supports and protects you. These are tangible protections as spiritual protections. This is also the home of projects and plans for the future.

The 12th house symbolizes enemies, problems, loneliness and secrets

The twelfth house corresponds to the sign of Pisces. It refers to your "inner self" and the trials you will encounter in your life, along with hidden enemies and serious illnesses. Everything related to places deprived of freedom is found in this house: prison and hospital etc.
