The houses in the natal (birth) chart reflect the specific areas of everyday experiences.  They are the life cycle of any one person’s journey from the moment of birth, through the development of self and ego, onto finding our place in society and finally coming to a time when we once again explore our connectedness with the whole and return to a state of at-one-ness.  Below are simplistic descriptions of each of the houses but it is important to remember that while the houses are clearly defined divisions within the chart they are also part of the larger cycle of life.  The process of life as such cannot be so clearly departmentalised into 12 segments for by the very nature of our existence we are on a journey and each of the houses flows into the next and all the houses are very much interconnected.
