It’s been a while since we did a D.I.Y. Astro!
This is when you get to figure out the workings of your chart (that you can scare up pretty quickly off Astrodienst) and thus learn more about astro AND yourself in the process.
The Rules: No question is too dumb to ask – more seasoned peeps here love to help out the newbies – but please keep it in the spirit of growth, not hitting on other commenters for a free reading or similar.
SO there are 12 Houses in a chart, each pertaining to a different area of life. Some argue that this system is ancient and thus irrelevant, i personally find it still seems to be pertinent. There is a LOT about each individual house on the DIY Category Archives.
But what we are going to be talking about here is when you’ve got a house that is totally crowded – like three or more planets thronging in that sector. That is when you’re going to have way more of an emphasis in that area of life than you are in others. An empty house does not mean that never happens for you but the areas of focus will be your crowded houses for sure.
So what are yours?
Use the archives or search menu to quickly learn more about what each House means but in brief: 1st House = your image, your look, self-image in relationships, how others see you…2nd House = $$$ & self-esteem, resources, 3rd House = Communications, glibness, eloquence, desire to write, 4th House -= chez You + family of origin, 5th House = babies, art, light romances, 6th House = work & health, 7th House = marriage style relationships and biz partnerships, 8th House = Sex, Occult, like Scorpio, 9th House = Travel, Philosophy, Mind Expansion, 10th House = Public image, career, fame, 11th House = Groups, utopian visions, community You & 12th House = your subliminal mind, your psyche.
Mine are the 2nd & 8th, which used to really give me the shits when i was learning astrology and looking for something astrobatory to read about myself but now i’m kind of with it a bit more. I think.
