12 Houses of Astrology

The astrologers have divided life matters into 12 different categories or areas. These are called 12 houses of astrology. The most important houses of a person are 1st House (Self), 4th House (Home), 7th House (Marriage), and 10th House (Career).
To make predictions about these 12 life matters, the astrologers draw a simple circle on paper, having 12 equal sections. This is called Circle of Houses and its each section represents a house of your life.

Effect of Sun, Moon or other Planets on Your 12 Houses

The 12 houses of your life are affected by the presence of Sun, Moon or other planet (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) in them. Therefore, the astrologers check that your House no. 1 contains which Planet, Sun or Moon? Similarly, they check that your House no. 2 contains which Planet, Sun or Moon? This thing is checked for all 12 houses of your horoscope.
Each of Sun, Moon & other planets has its own nature, and affects the corresponding house, accordingly.
It should be noted that the position of Sun, Moon or some other planets in your houses is different at different times. It was different at your birth time, it is different today, and it will be different for coming days, weeks and months. Therefore, your horoscope is different each day.
