Learning time: Astrological houses

Astrological houses are somewhat like stations where planets move, they describe certain themes as parts of natus life.


First house 

Correspodents to the sign of Aries, therefore it has cardinal nature and it’s one of the most important houses in the whole chart. It’s because first house is naturally known as Ascendant ; rising sign we’re born with.

It’s known at latin name “Vita” which means life. And it represents ourselves, mask we wear to protect ourselves from others. This house and it’s rulers and aspects also determine physical appearance and first impressions we make on other people.

Also this house will describe our young life and our childhood infuluences. Some say this house represents our ego which could be the case, but this is the main house of the mask we wear infront of others to protect ourselves from their bad influences.

It’s a house where we take intitiative and also start new things. This is a house where things happen.


Second house

Such as our house, car, computer, watch etc. In the past it was known as ‘house of money‘ , even it’s latin name Lucrum means wealth. This is also house of property, but also house of sensuality, cultivation and growth and self-worth.

I think this is also house of all material, such as nature as well and our look on nature, and renewal after destruction (8th house).
