The first house


The first house - particularly the cusp of the first house (the Ascendant - tells us how an individual approaches the outer world and conversely how the individual is perceived by others. It shows the ways in which individuals seek to assert and express themselves.

The sign on the first house cusp and any planets in it influence our appearance, behaviour and the kind of image we tend to present to others and this often is reflected by our physical appearance and general constitution.

The first house stands for all kinds of new beginnings, the way we deal with new challenges and how we instinctively react to others. It stands for the 'I' and self-expression as opposed to the 'You' and relating to others symbolised by the seventh house.
