Just before I move away from the houses discussion, I want to briefly discuss a different way of dividing the chart and viewing the houses. 

By dividing houses into their associated mode or quadruplicity, the houses fall into three categories:

  • Anglar
  • Succeedent
  • Cadent

The houses that line up with the angles: 1, 4, 7 & 10 are considered Angular houses which have a sense of cardinality, action and 'getting stuff done' about them. They're the fast-moving, action oriented power-points of the horoscope.

The houses that follow: 2, 5, 8 & 11 are the Succeedent houses which have a sense of fixity about them, a slow, focussed and accumulating energy. They're the building houses of the horoscope which are powerful, though not as power-packed as the angular houses.

The remaining houses, 3, 6, 9 & 12 are the Cadent houses which have a mutable feel about them, with a sense of fluidity, going with the flow, and a dispersed output. These are the transitional low-power areas of the horoscope.

Viewing the houses with this added dimension adds to the understanding and art of interpretation.

For example: with Aries on the cusp of the 2nd house, you can still have a slow and considered approach, or perhaps the desire to build and accumulate in this area of your life, but you’ll approach these matters in an Aries way. 

You can still apply these rules when using equal house division (rather than a system like Placidus), and where the 'floating MC' falls will give you further detailed clues to the type of work you do and what you are known for.

I hope you enjoy the show and can explore this concept in your own natal charts to understand yourselves though this added dimension of house division!
