The cadent houses are the third, sixth, ninth, and twelfth houses. The Latin verb cadere means "to fall" and Hellenistic astrologers saw these houses as falling away from the horoscope angles. Although cadent houses were supposedly weaker and even misfortunate, this really applies only to the sixth and twelfth houses in traditional astrology. Modern astrologers are less inclined to see any houses as misfortunate.
