The 12 House System
There are 12 Houses in Astrology and each House governs a different area of life.
For example, the 1st House (aka the Ascendant House) is the House of Self. While the 10th House (aka the Midheaven House) is the House of Public Reputation.
Components of a House
Each House has a natural ruler (one of the 12 Zodiac signs), a planetary ruler and each house is associated with one of the elements.
A Horoscope is essentially an astrological chart which is cast using a point in time, a date and a location (geographical coordinates). Once cast, we are presented with a chart which incorporates the 12 Houses, the 10 planets and a different Zodiac sign which is assigned to each House (aka the cusp line). Whichever sign appears on the 1st House Cusp line is interpreted as the Ascendant.
In the example below, we can observe some of the following details about this chart:
Does everyone have a Horoscope?
Yes! In fact, everything in existence has its own Horoscope:
In this day and age, calculating a Horoscope is as easy as clicking a button! You can use the Free Birth Chart calculator on my website to calculate your Birth Chart. Calculating the chart is the easy part, however, interpreting your chart is where things get tricky!
