A Look Into Astrology

A Look Into Astrology

Nick DeLuca, Staff Writer

In my last article I talked about Sun signs and some other aspects about astrology. In this article, I will be talking about the different houses that show in your natal chart (birth chart). In a natal chart, there are twelve houses, all of which represent something different about yourself.


First House: symbolizes the acting self, the personality as it appears to others, and the unfolding of one’s individual destiny. Planets in your first house affect your personality strongly.

Second House: symbolizes what the self has to work with materially: possessions, money, and physical resources. This house also represents your desires and values.

Third House: symbolizes thinking and communication, your early environment is represented by this house, as well as your powers of analysis and discrimination.

Fourth House: represents the home environment, family life, and the father, or perhaps the same sex parent.

Fifth House: represents creativity and self-expression, also offspring, and is also associated with romance and reflection.

Sixth House: represents issues of sickness and health, and service to others, including conditions of daily life, or work.

Seventh House: represents marriage and partnerships of all kinds, and issues with relating to other people.

Eighth House: symbolizes issues of death and rebirth, sexuality, and transformation.

Ninth House: represents intuition and the study of religion philosophy, and higher learning. In addition, it represents travel to foreign countries, and legal matters.

Tenth House: symbolizes the public life, authority, career issues, and also represents the mother, or the opposite- sex parent.

Eleventh House: symbolizes goals and objectives, also friendships and membership in groups or associations.

Twelfth House: refers to the unconscious and to things beyond the physical plain.
