An astrologer assumes that the Earth is a fixed point and that all other cosmic bodies revolve around it once a day. He or she then applies this 24-hour system to the birth chart. 

The main circle of the chart is divided into 12 equal segments. One segment or House equals two hours out of the total 24 hours. Houses are not equally divided and there have been numerous different House systems derived in the past 6,000 years. Today, most astrologers employ the most popular Placidous House system to divide the birth chart into 12 Houses. 

Houses relate to everyday activities: the first to personality, the second to possessions, and so on. A planet or planets placed in a particular House affect the area of life represented by that House in a manner typical of the planet. The House must be considered according to the sign in which the cusp or starting point of the particular House falls. 

The areas of life represented by the 12 Houses are as follows:

House Area of Life
1 Personality, health, disposition. 
2 Possessions, wealth, worldly resources. 
3 Family ties, education, short journey. 
4 Home, domestic life, parenthood. 
5 Creativity, children, speculation, love affairs. 
6 Work, subordinate. It is the attitude towards services to the outside world.
7 Partnership in love and business.
8 Inheritance, life and death, sex. 
9 Philosophical views, higher forms of education. 
10 Career, ambition, all matters outside the home. 
11 Friends, acquaintances, intellectual pleasures. 
12 A need for seclusion, self-sacrifice.
