Significance of all the 12 astrological houses

In my last article "Rationale behind Astrology" I explained you how astrologers use different houses of your birth chart to explain about a particular aspect of your like. Here in this blog entry I will explain to you the significance of each astrolgical house.


Astrological houses describe a specific field of experience in the native's real life. They indicate how the person functions, whether in his interactions with other people, his work, or his love affairs, etc. As with the 12 zodiacal signs, there are 12 astrological houses, and each house is in analogy with one of the signs.
