There are 12 signs of the zodiac and 12 houses of experience. The 12 signs represent personality types and ways in which a given planet expresses itself, the 12 houses show ‘where’ in your life this expression takes place. Each house has a different area of interest. A house can become potent and important – a house of power – in different ways; if it contains the Sun, the Moon, or the ‘ruler’ of your chart; if it contains more than one planet; or if the ruler of that house is receiving unusual stimulation from other planets.
