# #10 What is this House stuff ???

Well you are told there are 12 houses but what are they ?????

Its entire SPACE / SKY represented on a paper in the form of box…

See earth is a sphere. Therefore it has 360 degrees of dimensions. Any circle/sphere in short has 360 degrees.

Our ancestor viewed stars and planet from earth and used them for predictions. So earth is considered as center. So supposing you are on earth and seeing Venus the morning star – how will you tell others where Venus is located in this particular place ?

Well you would say its in the East .. but where in east ??? So to pinpoint with accuracy we have degrees. Know the GPS Co-ordinates to locate a thing like 24 N 12 E ?? yes that’s a location.

Consider, the center of this circle as EARTH. Lets say NORTH is at 90 degree, South at 270, West at 180 and east at 0 degree. So you could say that Venus is located at 30 degree in the East. So others could pinpoint it also and you have a place located with respect to earth.

So, we all know there are 12 ZODIAC SIGNS. So if we  divide the earth’s circle of 360 degrees by 12 Zodaic Signs… What do we get >>>> 12.

So, there are 12 house in birth chart and each house as an extent of 30 degrees.

Lets consider an example diagram:

So this kind of how a circle around the center on earth is divided. Each house is of 30 degrees. Horizon is a place where earth and sky appear to meet. This diagram is an EXAMPLE AND NOT actual House placement.

So this 12 houses are represented on Birth Chart in the form of box with 12 divisions.

So consider, this Birth Chart as a SKY and you are the earth and you are observing the sky.

See, from earth by looking at the Sky (Birth Chart) where is Venus is placed.

Well, Now you can say – Venus is in 9th house  and placed in Sign of Virgo (6) with Sun.

Amazing isn’t it ??

See yourself as a Sage observing the Sky (Birth Chart) and predicting future.

Can you tell me where moon is placed ???

Answer: Moon is in 5th house in the sign of Tauras…

TAKE-AWAY POINTS:

1. Your Birth Chart actually represents the SKY at the time at which birth took place with placement of planets
2. Each house is 30 degrees (Degrees vary – its not exact 30 but for understanding keep it to 30)
3. Using the Chart as SKY you can tell the Exact location of Planets in the sky
