What are the Different Houses in Astrology?

The Sun in the Houses

Once you get your Birth Chart that lists all the signs and astrological planetary alignment that was working together when you were born, understanding the astrological Houses and meanings comes next. The zodiac signs and their Houses is a study of what the planets and zodiac signs were doing and where they were positioned at the very moment when you were born. Zodiac signs and Houses influence personality, how you think and behave, and what conditions you will deal with in your life. Zodiac Houses and planets don’t decide everything or take away your choices. However, they decide some things, and understanding what they do control will help you understand yourself and your life better.

There are twelve different sections, or Houses in your Birth Chart, and they each influence things from how you will make friends and lovers to what your career will be like. Today, we will explore what happens when the Sun moves through each section, or House, but first we will learn a little about what each House is called and what it governs.

All About the Sun

The Sun in the Houses

After learning what each of the twelve Houses rule, it is time to explore the heavenly body that is the main topic today, the Sun. The Sun has been worshiped by many religious traditions as the main life giver. Indeed, were it not for the Sun, life on earth could not exist as it does. It is the center of our solar system, and although it is over 92,000,000 miles from our planet, Earth, the Sun dictates our light and temperature. Some major deities like Ra, Helios, and Utu have been characterized as the great Sun. Aztecs believed that they had to feed the Sun with human lives, or it would burn out. The Norse had a solar goddess named Sol or Sunna who was the sister of the Moon goddess, and she gave a famous healing incantation to the god Odin. The Egyptian sun god, Ra was believed to have created all life and he was the god not only of the Sun, but also of the sky itself and the great kings.

Government is represented by the glorious Sun and the Sun also represents wealth, power, and strength in general. Health, youth, vitality, fertility, and life in general are all represented by the Sun. It represents royal power and authority in general as well as confidence, pride, and plentifulness. It is glorious in its splendor but also compassionate and kind. The Sun represents hope and optimism, healing and good health, lavish gifts, and generosity.

The Sun in the Zodiac Houses

The Sun in the Houses

The Sun is one heavenly body that moves through our Birth Charts, and it influences our constitution. What this means is how strong we are in general as well as how energetic we are and how well we heal is also governed by the Sun in the Houses. The ability to overcome obstacles and challenges as well as purpose and determination are all decided by where the Sun is in our Houses. Let’s explore what it means when the Sun is in each of the twelve Houses.

The Sun in the First House

When the Sun is in your first House, you have strong drive to advance in life, wanting to be successful, and you seek the support of your elders and superiors. It makes you independent and you seek to rise above whatever station you were born into, making you one who assumes high levels of responsibility and gives you powerful ambition. You are not afraid to fight for your success, and your optimism combined with your work ethic will take you far in life.

The Sun in the Second House

You will benefit financially from your hard work and will impress your superiors, who will promote you and grant raises. Jobs in government and being given perks by people who rank above you as well as your father will move you up the ladder of success, but you don’t keep all your wealth and success to yourself. You will be generous with others materially, and socially will take people you feel are worthy into your circle.

The Sun in the Third House

You seek to educate, enlighten, and benefit other people intellectually and you are creative. Making the lives of people better through writings, or sharing information is a main goal of yours, and you are highly respected by peers, those you help, and family members. Travel for both business and pleasure are quite successful when the Sun is in your third House.

Sun in the Fourth House

This House dictates success through family and what the end of life will be like. The Sun in this House can either grant inheritance of wealth from family or difficulty due to family. However, your hard work will pay off due to your focus and ambition, and you are highly respected in your older years for your accomplishments. You can gain much property through your own hard work, even if you don’t inherit wealth from family.

The Sun in the Fifth House

When the Sun is in the fifth House, you are likely to have a small family, and may suffer from dangerous pregnancies or problems in childbirth. Troubles in love can keep you from having children, but despite any issues that may arise, whatever children in your family or of friends you spend time with will be enjoyable. Whatever kids you are fortunate of your own to have will have good relationships with you and the people in your life will honor and appreciate you.

The Sun in the Sixth House

Having the Sun in this House can weaken your health, unfortunately. However, you can combat this by healthy living, a good diet, and regular intervention by your doctor. You may do well in a career in a health care-based field, and you will be very good at helping relieve other people’s suffering.

The Sun in the Seventh House

The Sun in this House brings the energy of a good partnership in romance who has a long lasting, happy relationship with you. This is a good House for the Sun to be in for partnerships in general including business partnerships. Any disputes or problems can be settled successfully, most especially through use of legal intervention, or mediation. Keep good relationships with business partners and long term, it will pay off, building your success and wealth.

Sun in the Eighth House

Inheritance and or marriage increase your wealth and social standing and the Sun in the House brings something unusual to you in regard to longevity. You may die a very noble death that brings great fame, or your death may be averted, and your health is recharged, making your life even longer.

The Sun in the Ninth House

You are faithful to your religious beliefs when the Sun is in your ninth House, and you are self-reliant and very confident. Religious organizations, colleges, law offices, and organizations that study science and philosophy are places where you can be especially successful. You seek great truths that benefit humanity, and you enjoy traveling to foreign places, even living in other countries. You seek justice and make an excellent counselor or advisor.

The Sun in the Tenth House

When the Sun is in your tenth House, you are successful in whatever field or career you pursue, and you do especially well in government, law, or some supervisor role because you win the respect and trust of all those you work with. This is because of your dedication to your job and your strong sense of personal responsibility. Be aware not to become overly prideful and make sure to be generous to those who count on you to help them career wise.

Sun in the Eleventh House

You form friendships with respectable people who grant excellent connections in career and business, but that’s not because of luck. It’s because, like them, you are hard working and respectable yourself. Your friendships will grant opportunities you could not have enjoyed otherwise, and you will help aid in the success of friends who prove their worthiness as well.

The Sun in the Twelfth House

The Sun in this House grants powerful psychic abilities and you study the occult and mystical disciplines. You pick and choose when you need alone time, secluding yourself at times, and you thrive in some form of obscure job few others show any interest in. These careers are especially likely in fields related to prisons or hospitals, and you may find yourself living places in countries other than where you were born.
