Frequently asked questions

Understanding Astrology > Houses

  1. Which house system is the best to use?

    House systems are a matter of the personal taste of the Astrologer. We cannot give advice on this choice. There is no right or wrong. It's more a matter of experience with different systems.

  2. What is the meaning of empty houses?

    The fact that there are no planets in a house just means that the area of life this house stands for is not as eminently important in your life as the ones which have planets in. This doesn't mean that they are non-existent, but they don't play such an important role. You may find out more about your approach to these areas by interpreting the sign at the cusp of these empty houses.
    For more information, please read our short introduction to astrological house systems and houses.

  3. Which charts have intercepted signs?

    Whether or not there are intercepted signs in a chart depends on various factors:
    a) the latitude of the birth place: the closer to the poles, the more likely it becomes that there are extremely large houses with intercepted signs.
    b) choice of the house system: almost all house systems calculate houses in relation to the latitude, and have therefore different house sizes, except the equal house system which makes all houses 30 degrees. This makes intercepted signs impossible.
    Whether or not, or how one interprets intercepted signs is a matter of taste and of the choice of the individual astrologer.
