The Importance of The Astrological Houses

The astrological houses play an important part in understanding how we use our natal planetary energies. From the first house of self to the twelfth house of self-undoing, the houses offer insight into discovering more of who we are from an astrological perspective. The following is an overview of the 12 astrological houses and their meanings.

The 1st House Of Self

The first house is ruled by Aries, and it represents the self. This house starts off with the cusp which is the ascendant, and it is considered the entrance to the astrological chart. This house governs how a person is perceived and presented to the outside world i.e. first impressions. It also gives an indication of the physical appearance. For example, a person with Aries on the first house cusp is likely to present as an Aries individual regardless of their sun and moon sign. There could be a reddish undertone to their skin, and their demeanor is direct and forward. It is important to note that the entry to the natal chart, the first house is what we choose to show to the world, and how we are perceived via first impression and it is not the totality of who we are astrologically.
