The 12 houses of your personal astrology birth chart
Your personal astrology chart is broken down into twelve sections, these sections are referred to as ‘houses’. Each house reveals a story in a particular area of your life.
A proper analysis would also include a read on the placements of planets in one’s chart, current cosmic transits as well as aspects. But for the sake of this article, I’m going to keep it to generalized information that everyone can learn from.
Here is a break down of each of the houses, and what themes play out in each one.
The first house refers to your self-awareness, personality, appearance, your physical body, self-confidence, and your approach to life.
2. YOUR MONEY, VALUE SYSTEM & SELF-WORTH
The second house refers to the things you possess, within yourself and as well as the material realm.
3. YOUR COMMUNICATION STYLE & LOCAL COMMUNITY
Your third house refers to your rational mind, the way you communicate, the relationships you have with your siblings or close neighbours.
4. YOUR FAMILY & HOME LIFE
The fourth house refers to your emotional security, and the things that you need to cultivate at home with your immediate family.
5. YOUR PASSION, CREATIVITY, ROMANCE
The fifth house refers to your self-expression, your pleasure style, what you need in a romantic partner, your creativity and your playful nature.
6. YOUR DAILY LIFE & ROUTINES
The sixth house refers to habits, routine and structure to support your overall health.
7. CLOSE [1-1] RELATIONSHIPS, MARRIAGE, & CONTRACTS
The seventh house is most known as the house of marriage. But also refers to legal contracts or agreements and what I like to call your ‘harmony’ point.
8. HEALING, TRANSFORMATION & MONEY
The eight house refers to the deeper and darker mysteries – sex and bonding at the deepest level, taboos, death and rebirth cycles, other people’s possessions, taxes, wills, inheritance.
9. ADVENTURE, TRAVEL, HIGHER LEARNING
The ninth house refers to all things expansive – thoughts, philosophies, higher learning, travel and cultural experiences, belief systems, religion.
10. YOUR LIFE’S WORK
The tenth house refers to your legacy, public image and achievements on the world stage.
11. FRIENDSHIPS & NETWORKS
The eleventh house refers to community, friendships, and organizations.
12. SPIRITUALITY & SUBCONSCIOUS
The twelfth house refers to the ‘unseen’ – including intuition, dreams, secrets, emotions, meditation, and faith.
