The Astrological Houses
I am sure that you know there are twelve signs of the zodiac and there are also twelve houses of the zodiac.To make the houses a little more understandable I will give a short and somewhat simple description. Here goes…
The twelve houses are arranged in a circle with the first house always located at 9 o’clock. The rest of the houses go counter clockwise around the circle ending at the twelfth house. The first house is also called the Rising sign because it is situated on the horizon at the time and location of your birth. The twelve houses and the twelve signs share symbolism so lets talk a little about what each house represents.
