Astrology reading means studying and analyzing the diagrams and charts of the horoscope of an individual to describe his personality characteristics and then predict his future on the basis of those personality traits. Personality traits determine the quality of a person’s actions or karmas which in turn lead to the consequences of the actions. All these factors cumulatively are termed fate.
Planets and Signs
The study and analysis take within its ambit the movements and positions of the planets exactly at the date and time of the individual’s birth. It also considers their position in one of the twelve houses. Each planet, which has certain specific characteristics, governs the zodiac sign under which a person is born. Sometimes two planets cross or meet each other exactly at the time a person is born. Since each of the two crossing planets has its own characteristics, both of them exercise their influence on the person born at that time. In some cases, some dominant feature of a powerful planet influences the traits of another planet which it meets in a particular house and thus their resultant effect determines the personality of the individual.
It must be noted that the planets continue to move through 6th house astrology as they orbit around the sun. A house that is empty in your natal horoscope today may be full the next day.
Take for example the first house. This house determines a lot about what makes you a unique individual, your appearance, looks, personality, mental level, your priorities, goals and so on. It covers your ego, energy, natural propensities, your vitality, deepest inclinations and how you face the world. It is the hardest house. Astrologers often find it difficult to read this house because the desires of the clients are very personal. It also rules your will power, individuality and determination.
The First House
The first house reveals the sign rising on the horizon when you are born. The sign is also called the ascendant sign. The only way to find out your rising sign and understand it is to cast a natal horoscope chart for the exact date, time and place of your birth. It must be noted that all horoscopes have to be converted to the Greenwich Mean Time. Since Astrology is based on exact Mathematical calculations and measurements, the conversion of the date of birth of each client to a common denominator has to be done very carefully and accurately.
The sign of your ascendant is the same whose features and characteristics you naturally express in your personality. This explains why all those born under the same sign cannot have the same traits. Most of us are actually a combination of the sun sign and the ascendant. So you need to know your ascendant sign in order to be able to read both your Sun sign and your ascendant sign whether you want to analyze your personality traits or want to make a prediction about your future. If you, therefore, want a complete and accurate picture, you need to read and analyze both the Sun sign and the ascendant sign. The first house is ruled by the feisty, enterprising, and dynamic Mars and Aries the first sign of the zodiac.…
