General Introduction



Based on Tradition, this part covers the analysis of the astrological houses; the houses offer the advantage of providing precise and concrete information about our lives.
Their analysis has been divided into three categories ranked by importance:
1/ The Cardinal Houses Angular Axes Analysis: Houses 1-7 and 4-10
These key axes in the chart interpretation refer to the intimate structure of the personality:
The axe 1-7: is about the Subject:
• Me towards myself (First House)
• Me towards the outside world (Seventh House)
The axe 4-10: is about the people around the Subject
• Family environment (Fourth House)
• Social environment (Tenth House)
2/ Fixed Houses Fixed Axes Analysis: Houses 2-8 and 5-11
These two axes refer to your Assets, what you Possess:
• Material assets for the axis 2-8
• Emotional assets for the axis 5-11
3/ The Mutable Houses Mutable Axes Analysis: Houses 3-9 and 6-12
These are the two axes of Growth
• Through Knowledge for the axis 3-9
• Through Hardship for the axis 6-12
The houses in turn divide into axes.
Note: Every house deals with several subjects, but for clarity purposes we have given preference to certain themes.

~  House 01  ~

The first house gives us information about the personality and the will, and also about the body, its constitution and heredity. It partially determines the character.



Solar Sign and Ascendant : Cancer - Aries
Your mind is keyed up with excitement, like that of a child that feeds on action, courage and glory. You sometimes also have swinging moods due to your manic-depressive nature. Your willpower goes up and down, you are full of initiative, yet lack perseverance: enthusiastic and positive periods alternate with times of weariness and great inner uncertainty. You are oversensitive, which mostly leads to a certain anxiety, and also a great touchiness. Your imagination is lively, it gives you the taste for adventure, travels, and the search for new horizons. All or part of your energy is likely to be focused on the development of your family’s well-being and on the establishment of a solid basis.

Sun - Moon : Cancer - Scorpio
What a wonderful guinea-pig you would be for a Sherlock Holmes of psychoanalysis, some potential Jung fascinated by the mysterious dark regions of the soul! Like an undersea volcano that is hidden under the Tranquillity Sea, you move to the violent and undefinable rhythms of your unconscious, of these great instinctive energies that flow in you and so often tear you apart... The path is steep: in you Life and Death are so close, so alike. Alike too are joy and suffering, which you never (or almost never) express separately, although you don’t really want it to be that way. If you succeed in externalizing your unconscious urges other than through anxiety, hard-heartedness or self-destruction, then you could find a certain relief, precisely due to your overcoming your doubts and feelings of guilt. Your personality is intuitive, deep, and extremely emotional. Your sorrows are immense, your joys unlimited. In short, you have a lack of moderation.

Neptun Piscis Near House 01:
Your personality reaches a certain degree of evolution and goes beyond the individual stage. Your belief-system is not based on rigour and logic, but rather on a diffuse perception of things and people. Intuition gives your intelligence its foundation, and you focus on expanding your knowledge by turning it towards irrationalism and the unlimited. You have an undefined, oversensitive, and extremely receptive nature, and your lymphatic disposition conveys spiritual richness and the expression of a profound universe. You are very romantic, and your fertile and wild imagination is pervaded with mystery, dreams and the search for calm and serenity. It is true that you lack stamina at times, but the periods of overexcitement that follow show how good and generous you are.






~  House 07  ~

The seventh house is about associations, marriage, contracts and relationships (associative and social life, fashionable circles,...).



Venus Master of House 07
Your qualities of sociability and gift for dialogue and contacts are obvious. You are open-handed and gladly give people your confidence. You have many connections in all kinds of circles; they often come to your "rescue" at the right time. You don’t like loneliness, so you should give priority to group activities, associations and collaborations. This is an excellent position for marriage. Your feelings are noble, your passions burning, and marital life is tinged with happiness and gentleness (unfrequent conflicts that are quickly solved except with bad aspects). Your spouse has refined tastes, is generous and sometimes drawn to the practice of an art. You seem to be a happy and serene couple, and you get a lot of invitations. All associations in relation to art and humanism (which bring inner self-fulfilment) are freely accessible to you. Your altruism and understanding of human relationships can make you very popular or get you powerful protections.






~  House 04  ~

The fourth house is related to the family, the home, places of residence, property, real estate, and the area where you live.



Sun Cancer in House 04:
This position emphazises the basic importance of your education, and especially your father’s influence. He is likely to make available to you both his patrimony (financial or cultural) and his prestige, which is generally excellent. Your home and family are for you a key value, it constitutes the basis of your psychological balance. Whether or not you come from a wealthy background, your family is likely to help you find fulfilment and they will probably be one of the sources of happiness in your life. There is a good chance that you will have a nice living environment, a pleasant home and/or a considerable amount of real estate. Negative aspects to the Sun (see calculation page) can diminish the good influences contained in this position, which is a fortunate one for family life.






~  House 10  ~

The tenth house or Medium Coeli (M.H) deals with the profession, honours and power. It represents destiny and career.



First, we are going to examine the signs on the cusps of Houses 6 and 10, i.e. Virgo - Capricorn
You are a real "walking" advertisement: as precise as a Swiss stopwatch, as trustworthy as a Mercedes, as rigorous as an equation, and as moral as a protestant pastor! What else do you need to inspire others with confidence, acquire competence and seriousness, and accomplish yourself in your chosen field of endeavour? Maybe a dash of fantasy, and knowing how to relax a little from time to time... Profitable spheres of activity include: administration, control services (mining, weights and measures,...), watch-making, mathematics, natural sciences, industrial security systems, chemical conservation...

Saturn Capricorn in House 10:
You are great at using the Time factor: you are an assiduous and methodical worker, who applies the rules to a t and whose perseverance overcomes all obstacles. Your social rise will be slow, step by step; the outcome of your enterprises will be the result of a long and serious toil. You are persistent and your projects are carefully prepared. Despite all these qualities, you have difficulty becoming integrated in a group: you prefer working by yourself and have maximum autonomy. Otherwise, you are capable of everything; you can ensure the most exhausting work in the most difficult conditions, or lead a whole group of people with an iron hand. Your activity could be related to administration (politics, organization, management, research) or else to architecture, construction, land-ownership, agriculture, or agronomy. Certain professions could have to do with old age, history, or the past.

Pluto Capricorn in House 10:
Your actions are carefully thought out, and once you have set your goals, you put in really persistent efforts. You seldom lose heart and you hang on in spite of the difficulties. Your ambition aims at short-term goals, so you need a certain stability on the professional level (career plan). You will have success, even if not right away, through your qualities of seriousness, regularity, temperance and rigour. You are not made for group work; you prefer to think or do your research in solitude. Professions aiming at improving, transforming, and detecting, those dealing with organizing or related to administration, can be favourable. Your activity will sometimes drive you to transform, renew, reduce, concentrate, or carry through long research in an unconventional field.






Fixed Axes Analysis : Houses 2-8 and 5-11

These two axes refer to your Assets, what you Possess:

• Material assets for the axis 2-8
• Emotional assets for the axis 5-11



Analysis Houses 2-8
The second house rules finances: the sources of income, possessions, budget, and material acquisitions.

The eighth house rules other people’s money, inheritances, sexuality, mystery, the invisible, crises, and the way you envision death.

Analysis Houses 5-11
The fifth house gives us information about love relationships, pleasure, leisure, and also children and creativity.

The eleventh house is related to friendship, projects and hopes.






~  House 02  ~

The second house rules finances: the sources of income, possessions, budget, and material acquisitions.



Urano Taurus in House 02:
Your profession is often related to an idea of progress, independence or new activities and techniques. In business, you are daring and take risks because you follow your intuition, even more so when it has to do with inventions or the future. Yet, your situation is subject to many fluctuations. Ups and downs follow one another, but you have a considerable luck that allows you to recover unexpectedly. It would be a good idea in times of luck to put some money away for a rainy day, which will come sooner or later. You are not self-seeking in money issues, but money is for you a wonderful means of emancipation, freedom and "enfranchisement" from constraints: in that sense, it is important to you. You are likely to work on exploiting new ideas, novelties or inventions. Friends will play an important part in your business (good or bad depending on the aspects to Uranus).






~  House 08  ~

The eighth house rules other people’s money, inheritances, sexuality, mystery, the invisible, crises, and the way you envision death.



Moon Scorpio in House 08:
You are interested in occult sciences (hypnosis, mediums...) and all that is about death (quest for a great Beyond). Marriage, associations and public affairs (employment or markets) can constitute a good source of income. In certain charts and if corroborated by other elements, this position can indicate a female relative’s untimely death. It is also an indication of inheritances (often considerable, and sometimes giving rise to litigations). You will probably live to a ripe old age. Your sexual life is strongly influenced by psychological and emotional elements (great importance of phantasms, strong erotic imagination). You find it difficult to express your drives, which makes your life more complicated and explains why your personal fulfilment generally comes late in life. Learning to express them is a necessary stepping stone towards your well-being. The key for you is to be able to overcome your doubts and other feelings of guilt. You will need a cosy living environment and intimate atmosphere, and a feeling of security, in order for you to be happy. Here is some advice: don’t confine yourself to a passive role!

Jupiter Scorpio in House 08:
This planetary position protects (or prolongs) your life span and lets you expect a peaceful and natural death.
Your financial means are very much increased through help from your wife or an associate, most of the time as a result of an inheritance or legacy. Law decisions are also likely to bring you considerable gains, e.g. in the form of allowances or pensions. You are able to cope with the blows of fate and often live a quiet life, trying to improve the lot of mankind. Sometimes, you show a special interest in occult sciences and metempsychosis.
Are you a sensual, passionate, generous and sincere person who finds an outlet in quick and temporary affairs, or, an exhibitionist who is domineering, "violent", and tempted by sexual abuse? Both tendencies are latent in you, but in most cases, your sex life is healthy. Your magnetism and power of attraction come from your charisma, the natural and reassuring side of you, and your optimism. Part of you is a "teddy bear" that most people would love to "snuggle" up to. You are tempted by a certain sexual exoticism, so travelling and people from foreign origin will be favourable to your satisfaction in that area of life.

Moon Conjunction Jupiter
You are clearly in favour of social order, with a touch of liberalism. You possess a good capacity of integration in your living environment, whether family or external. There is a certain sensitiveness to material and moral comfort to be detected in your behaviour. This is obvious, among others in a certain epicureanism that you like to nurture with visible self-satisfaction (good food, taste for partying...). People generally agree that you are good-natured, hospitable and quite generous. Your weaknesses could be: fits of conformism, taste for luxury and easiness, and lack of moderation.






~  House 05  ~

The fifth house gives us information about love relationships, pleasure, leisure, and also children and creativity.



Mercury Leo in House 05:
Your romantic ideal urges you to seek out intelligent people, preferably young (at least in spirit). You are like a "butterfly": you have difficulty settling down, and your natural charm often leads you to fleeting affairs. You want to change and discover something else (great romantic curiosity). Your (numerous) affairs are tinged with a certain refinement that is more mental than sensuous (platonic love, love correspondence). In general, you are neither jealous nor possessive (unless there are bad aspects to Mercury). You run away from boredom (pursuit of pleasures and fun), and your desires are often whimsical. For you, emotional harmony will require a feeling of great intellectual attunement with each other, "brotherly" rapport, cheerfulness and joy in life. You prefer the temporary over the durable, so don’t be surprised if it backfires on you and you are caught out at your own game. Sports requiring a certain skill, educational leisure (travelling, shows, painting, music, dancing,...), and gambling and betting based on thinking, suit your personality. The number of your children could be limited (one of them could be gifted intellectually).






~  House 11  ~

The eleventh house is related to friendship, projects and hopes.



Mars Aquarius in House 11:
You are a faithful, generous and demonstrative friend. You express yourself with great honesty, however, you possess a provoking side that is not always appreciated by everyone (you could have frequent disagreements but they don’t leave permanent marks). What characterizes you is ambition and enthusiasm for your occupation.
You work out numerous plans, skipping from one idea to the next, which often leaves your projects with a lack of consistency: they are often hasty and you need help from true friends in order to carry them through successfully. In friendship too, you are subject to a series of impulsive attachments, often to active, enterprising, or at the very least athletic people. Arguments are likely, and some people holding grudges against you, might deceive you. In any case, you will need level-headedness and a lot of tact and diplomacy in order to reach your goals.






Mutable Axes Analysis : Houses 3-9 and 6-12

These are the two axes of Growth

• Through Knowledge for the axis 3-9
• Through Hardship for the axis 6-12



Analysis Houses 3-9
The third house defines the practical mind, intelligence, trips, communication, and the people around you (siblings, cousins, neighbours ...).

The ninth house defines our morals, and the mental and philosophical level. It gives us information about the qualities of our mind and spirit, but also about our relationship to foreign countries and travels.

Analysis Houses 6-12
The sixth house bears a character of service and obligations on the professional level. It gives information about the hygiene of life and health.

The twelfth house takes into account the enemies and hardships you might have to face. It also indicates the spheres of activity where our freedom of action is limited.






~  House 03  ~

The third house defines the practical mind, intelligence, trips, communication, and the people around you (siblings, cousins, neighbours...).



Mercury Master of House 03
You possess a good education, a solid and varied knowledge, and you are capable of carrying through higher studies. You are a literary talent and gifted speechmaker, and you express yourself with ease. This double talent (oral and written) combined with a very widespread knowledge, allow you to acquire a great erudition. You are quick-witted and clever, and others are amazed at your clear vision of things and young outlook. Your intelligence is flexible, you learn quickly and adapt remarkably to all situations: you are resourceful and skilful, but also a little of an opportunist. You are great at laying out ideas and getting others to share them, and you are gifted for languages. These abilities naturally lead you to give priority to communication. If your education didn’t allow for long studies, keep in mind that it is never too late to start: it would be a pity to neglect your great intellectual potential. With bad aspects, you are likely to use tricks and deceive people.






~  House 09  ~

The ninth house defines our morals, and the mental and philosophical level. It gives us information about the qualities of our mind and spirit, but also about our relationship to foreign countries and travels.



Jupiter Master of House 09
You have ideals inspired by a certain joy in life! You are sociable and become perfectly integrated into the life of the community by abiding by the established rules and habits. You are also an idealist who attaches a lot of importance to spiritual life and philosophy. Your idea of justice is strongly tinged with tolerance and you naturally respect other people’s opinions. Morally and intellectually you have the soul of a great traveller or adventurer looking for exoticism and the unknown. You are hungry for freedom of movement and open air. You are drawn to philosophy and sciences that rely on imagination. You have a synthetical mind and your culture is widespread in general; you coordinate your knowledge methodically, which makes you good at teaching. With this position, your abilities to complete long studies are strongly emphasized: it would be too bad not to take advantage of them. Your beliefs regarding politics and religion are deep-rooted. But this position cancels the bad effects of fanaticism and keeps you within legal bounds. You should attach a special importance to travels (sometimes figurative) and to foreign countries, because their influence can weigh heavily on your destiny. All trips, contacts and transactions with the outside world enrich you both morally and materially.






~  House 06  ~

The sixth house bears a character of service and obligations on the professional level. It gives information about the hygiene of life and health.



Venus Virgo in House 06:
This position indicates that you pay special attention to your health. You are subject to passing tiredness and your constitution is more balanced than truly robust (yet, longevity is likely). Your weak points are first the kidneys, which as you know are the great purifiers of your body. Besides, your throat and larynx are also very sensitive (phlegmons, tonsillitis, problems with your voice). The balance and resistance of all these organs is essential to your physical shape. So pay special attention to your health by giving priority to prevention and hygiene of life by practising sports. Indeed, you lack physical tone and you easily let yourself go overweight. The astrological tradition says that you are lucky and protected with your health. You are interested in destitute and sick people, and animals.






~  House 12  ~

The twelfth house takes into account the enemies and hardships you might have to face. It also indicates the spheres of activity where our freedom of action is limited.



Neptun Master of House 12
With good aspects, transcending your ego can lead to a high degree of growth, good-heartedness, generosity and spiritual richness. You are definitely interested in irrationalism and the unlimited, and also in everything that has to do with the human factor. You are very likely to come in contact with underprivileged populations, whether economically weak, diseased or dependent on a system (judicial for example). All occupations requiring investigations are compatible with you (medical and hospital world, psychoanalysis, secret research,...). Seeking out glory and popularity doesn’t suit this position, which rather indicates a quiet life and a certain reverence. Bad aspects could mean fearsome secret enemies, certain ill-founded accusations or a limited freedom. You could suffer psychological difficulties or problems related to mass phenomena (epidemics, viruses).
