The Astrology Houses can be likened to a scenery on a stage showing where the drama is occurring. The birth time determines what planets are placed in the houses of your birth (natal) chart. This is why the birth time is so important. Without the correct time it is like a huge piece missing from the puzzle.
An Astrologer can still get a lot of information with just your date of birth. However, it is difficult to get the whole picture without your correct birth time.
Your birth chart will show which of the 12 signs was rising (also known as your Ascendant) and will then divide your chart into twelve-pie shaped divisions called houses. The houses relate to areas showing where the drama is occurring.
It is also interesting to see what pieces of your chart are larger than others. It can be likened to bigger or smaller pieces of a pie, the larger pieces may indicate areas having more impact. Each house is also influenced by the planets in these houses. As always with Astrology there are so many other different areas which also need be considered.
To discover what planet(s) are in each of your houses go to www.astro.com and enter in your details. You can then explore the different parts making up your chart. With this information you will discover a lot about yourself. Do not be surprised to discover certain parts of yourself you thought were strange or different.
