The Houses: The Building Blocks of Your Life
As each planet works its way through the
twelve constellations (which make up the twelve signs of the
zodiac), it passes through one of the twelve houses of each
of those signs. Each house governs a different area of life,
from relationships, marriage, and children, to your career,
co-workers, study, travel, and the home -- one of them even
rules your identity and appearance. At the moment of your
birth, the planets were spread out in a specific formation,
each one located in a specific house. This pattern made by
the planets and their locations, called the "natal horoscope",
is nearly as individual to you as your fingerprint.
On your natal horoscope, some houses may have been full, and
others empty. (There are eight planets plus the Sun and moon
and, as I said, twelve houses, so there are not enough planets
to go around.) It makes no difference if you have a few empty
ones. Everyone does -- at least an empty house doesn't have
any difficult planetary energy in it!
Keep in mind that the planets continually move through these
houses as they orbit the Sun. A house that is empty in your
natal horoscope could be very full today!
