The Birth Chart is divided into 12 houses and each one represents an area in our life. This is more about the dynamic with which we interact with the world. We will tell you what the 12 houses are and what they mean!
When we speak of "houses" in astrology, we refer to a system in which the sky is divided into twelve sections. They are a symbolic space, related to the real space in which all the phenomena of our lives take place.
The house in which a planet is located is the place where it will manifest its energy, we see this when we observe our Birth Chart. When a planet enters the area, it is said to be in "House No. X" and refers to the influence it will have in that place.
The planets that are in each house at the time of our birth determine the different aspects of our personality and the structure of the houses symbolize the individual personality.
