7th House

The 7th house is an angular house, known as the descendant and the house of your partner. This house is home to the cardinal sign Libra ruled by Venus and is the masculine expression of that planet. The element closely attributed to this house is Air. This house is related to social interactions. Because the 7th house shares its axis with the 1st house communication is one on one. The seventh house shows your one or one relationships, business partners, contracts. Being 10th from the 10th house, the 7th house represents laws your career, and the legacy created with someone else as well as marriage.  Because, this is an air house ruled by Venus this house, through logic, is how you use your values, voice, and possessions to create a harmonious existence.

When there are planets in the seventh house, they take on Libra qualities. It is also like having that planet conjunct Venus. This is the masculine aspect of Venus so values, money, possessions are sought outwardly through others. If there are personal planets in this house it has a powerful influence on your personal life be it Sun your ego, Moon your emotion, Mercury how you communicate and your peers, Venus your values and interpersonal relationships, and Mars what you put your energy towards.

With the Sun in this spot the ego and what you want personally has to take a set. This is the house about creating harmony with someone else through compromise in order to get the objective goal of the partnership. So your conscious personality has to water down a bit, becoming passive or deceiving to obtain that harmony. Moon in this house has someone with there emotions dependent on their relationships with others, or instead of wearing your heart on your sleeves as in the 1st house, those you are around on a one on one base will seem emotional. Thus, relationships, business dealings etc. seem to ebb and flow like the tide. You have an intuitive understanding of relationships.

With Mercury here, you like jokes with your partner. They should be quick-witted with a sense of humor. You think about relationships, and enjoy more than one relationship at a time. Not always on the same levels meaning you have a romantic sexual relationship, and you are curious about having a no sexual romantic relationship or what have you. With Mercury here, you tend to analyze relationships, business dealings with others to better understand them. Your words and how you communicate will add to your ability to gain some sort of benefits from others. Not in the same way as the 8th house, the 7th house is a precursor to the 8th. Emotional involvement is not something that comes to mind this is the individual meeting others on the detached and logical level.

This is the house of Venus. You value harmony, socially accepted and refined beauty, relating to others or your environment in some way. You know how to be in a relationship and how to have it benefit you in the long run. Mars in this house is the go-getter when it comes to relationships. But Mars has to refine its raw energy to fit in Venusian houses. This is not the best placement for this planet but, Mars will make it work when it comes to things of this house. You will want to go after relationships and may have many partners who want to dominate relationships. You will have to stick up for yourself when it comes to others.

First House in astrology, Houses!

First House in astrology

The first astrological house is an angular house. This is the native to the zodiac Ares and is ruled by Mars. The element associated with the first house is fire. The first house is the house of self and where we can find the ascendant. The ascendant in a natal chart is the sign that was rising on the horizon during the time of birth, and it directs a person’s life path.

Planets in the first house attribute to your personality, and your first impression of others. The sign rising creates the overall mask of who you are. The element of the rising sign is the element you present to the world first. For example, if you have an earth sign in the rising sign, then your go-to element is earth. Your personality would be defined as practical, down to earth, you are seen as a sensual person, material stability and luxury are essential for you. I’ll continue on with the elements in the rising… If the sign of your rising is a fire sign then you are more inclined with being self-centered (this is not all bad), vibrant, possibility temperamental, having a child-like wonder and air, personal freedom is one of your focus.

With a water sign as the rising, you’ll have a knack for understanding and manipulating other’s emotions, you can reflect what others feel back to them if need be. Security is prominent in your life, your mother and family will have a significant impact on your personality. For air signs as the rising your personality focus on mental aspects, relationships and communicating with others are essential. Being social is a must. These rising are logic centered and are more inclined to explore social boundaries.

As for the Personal Planets in the 1st house. It is like having a Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars conjunct with Mars. The Planets become lord of your chart and aspects you closely identify with.  Sun in the 1st house is for leaders though who will not allow anyone else put out there shine. They are conscious of what others see of them and their first impression. Sun here is like an Aries sun. My advice to allow them to be them. Getting in their way will be a mistake.

With the Moon here, your emotions are apparent, woman and your mother are important influencers for good or bad in your life. This is close to having an Aries moon or a Moon/Mars conjunction. Someone with the moon in the first house is likely to have a bit of a temper, combative, or someone who leads their life with emotions or a mother who is like that. You can reflect what others feel with this placement. The closer the moon is to the ascendant the more prevalent this is.

Mercury here leads you to be talkative and a smarty pants. Someone with this placement will have a quick mind and a sharp tongue with multiple interests and skills. Though because this is like having a Mercury/Mars conjunction it makes you ruthless when in an argument. I personally would not want trade words with this person.

Venus here makes some level of your personality diplomatic. You can be physically attractive in some way, or artistically inclined. This planet allows balance in the native life and nature. Favorable, because Venus is about money, situations flow into this Persons life. This is relatable to having Venus/Mar conjunction possibly making someone passive aggressive.

Mars in comfortable here. This is one of the best places for Mars. The planet makes you active here, giving you the energy to stand up for yourself. This makes you act bolder than any other planet, except for the Sun. Most people with Mars in the first require physical exertion like running, jogging, weight lifting, martial arts, etc. The closer Mars is to the ascendant the stronger its influence on the native’s personality.

You can break down the meaning of someones rising sign with all the elements, modalities, or gender polarities.

Houses in Astrology

There are 12 houses in astrology. The 12 houses correlate to the 12 signs. The 1st house is home for Ares, the 2nd house is home to Taurus, the 3rd house is home to Gemini so on and so forth. Astrological houses hold an is the environment the zodiac signs evolve in. As for planets, the houses are ruled or governed by planets, corresponding to the masculine and feminine aspect of planets. An easy way to tell if a house is masculine or feminine is if it is an even or odd house. Even numbers are seen as feminine, odd numbers are masculine. Another way is by the natural element associated with that house, fire and air are masculine, earth and water are feminine.

There are three types of houses angular houses relating to cardinal signs like Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Succedent houses relating to fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. Then, cadent houses relating to mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Angular houses create the structure of the natal chart and start the flow of energy through the signs. Succedent houses preserve the energy created from the Agular houses and Cardinal signs. The need for preservation in the houses is one reason why fixed signs are stubborn and hard to change. Cadent houses keep the energy flowing ensuring nothing is stagnant. The requirement for energy to move and progress is why mutable signs need space freedom and the ability to move and transmute in accordance with there element.
