The positions of the Houses are essential to determine the natal chart
Calculating a natal chart is a method based on the Earth and not on the Sun. As such, the position of celestial bodies (the Sun and Moon) is used alongside the position of the planets in the solar system (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and also Pluto).
The map of the sky at the time of birth is divided into twelve houses that each correspond to an aspect of that person’s life. The first six houses symbolize the private, inner life of that person, while the other six represent their public and outer life. You then need to determine the position of the planets within these houses at a given time – here: the moment of birth – and then see how they are positioned relative to one another. In other words, in astrological terms: you calculate how they aspect one another.
Relationships between the Houses
As such there are various positions that are defined according to the angles formed between the planets, called aspects.
- When the angle between two planets is flat, they are in conjunction,
- When, the angle is 180°, they are in opposition,
- When the angle is 120°, they form a trine, 90° makes a square, and 60° is a sextile.
Using the position of the planets relative to one another, and the House in which they can be found, you can then determine the major components of a person’s personality, and unveil astrological predictions for them.
Do you know your Sun Sign and Moon Sign?
If you know your traditional sign in the zodiac, it is also called the sun sign. However, it is not enough to guide your existence: you must also know what your Moon Sign is. Your sun sign determines your core nature and personality traits that will stay constant throughout the ups and downs of your existence. The sun stands at the center of the solar system. Likewise, your sun sign describes what makes you unique. Your sun sign is a reflection of the outer image your present to the world, the one that comes from the most genuine and intimate part of your being.
A study of your sun sign unveils the ideal conditions, environment, and situations that are favorable to your evolution.

Likewise, knowing another person’s sun sign will help you to better understand them and be able to help them when they need it, in any aspect of their life, from the intimate sphere to solving more global problems.
However, in order to perfect your understanding of your own personality and skills, and to make the right decisions in any given situation, you also need to know your moon sign. This will provide you with a more accurate projection of your inner being.
What can you decipher from your moon sign?

In astrology, the Moon represents the instinctive self that drives your reactions, usually in the best possible way, before you can use your reason to overcome an obstacle or find the advice you need to grow and be successful in any aspect of your life. This ability is also called “intuition”. In your everyday life, the characteristics of your moon sign are the points of reference you will rely on in order to restore your emotional stability.
