Module 14 – The Houses (10, 11, 12)

Let us now continue with our discussion of the astrological houses by looking at houses 10, 11 and 12. I will also include the numerological number, and the astrological house type next to each house.  For a full chart that lists all astrological houses and the corresponding meanings and numerological number see the quick guide in module 11.

The Tenth House  (number 8 – eight ) – Angular (strong)

The tenth house is identified with all of the material things in life, and the wealth that they represent. The aspirations and the ambitions of the subject are best indicated by this house. Your career and your status in life are all part of this house and the planets and placements in this house will do a good job of indicating how you are in the workplace and even the way that others look up to you and respect you in your career. Even your personal achievement is part of the traits indicated by this house.

As you work to achieve fulfillment, your own personal sagtisfication and your abilities and talents will take shape based on the indications of this house. The face that you put on for others to see in public is represented here, as well as the way that you contribute to society in general. Your status in the world is part of this and this includes your career and how you approach and achieve your life purpose.

The properties of this house are most strongly shaped during the childhood years.  The primary male parent (usually the father) is indicated by this house. If you had a good upbringing and had attention from your father than you will bring that same attitude to your career and the way that you carry yourself in public. On the other hand, if your father was absent from much of your life, you may have a hard time bringing your career to fruition, or finding the ambition and drive you need to make it happen.

Your expectations and any unfulfilled ambitions may show up here as ewll. All of this is represented by your parents, and especially any other authority figures in your life. All of this can be seen by the planets and other aspects that are present in this house, even your attitude to any bosses, employers, parents, or officials in your life.

The Eleventh House  (number 7) – Succedent (persevering)

The eleventh house is the house of friends, clubs, groups and acquaintances. The subjects relationship with groups and the hopes and wishes that the subject desire are all symbolized by this house. Intellectual stimulation as well as high creativity are also represented by this house. The desire to grow and become greater than we are (self-improvement) is the major characteristic of this house.

It represents the capacity of the subject to become something more, their deepest hopes, desires and wishes, and even all that they represent are best indicated by this house. As the subject seeks to go beyond the self identified with  by the ego, and achieve or become something greater, a deeper sense of self is instilled (a group identity), or a belief, or personal awareness that leads the subject to greater things.

The interconnection of all things and the meaning of life and the subject’s search for the meaning of life is also placed in this house. It is a spiritual intent that is behind, or beyond all other things, and this is what is initially wished for. To grow, and to become something more requires that we accept the help of others, this is the best representation of the group that can be made from the planets placed in this house. It is how we learn to accept others, how we learn that only through the help of others can we grow beyond anything that we could become by ourselves that we find the real meaning life. This desire to achieve, persevere and do, and the safety and spiritual acceptance and new awareness that comes from it are the main characteristics indicated here.

The way that we accept our social thoughts, and the feelings and emotions that are brought up when others think of us is the result of what is found here. Strong planetary placements in this house are indicative of a the type of groups that we may feel drawn toward in our lives. Because we all look to are friends as one main source of social identity, our friendships and how they appear in our lives are part of this house as well.  It also may indicate how and what we like to do in our social lives, and the way in which we develop and try out new things (personal interests), especially as they are related to how we share them with those that are close to us throughout are lives.

The Twelth House  (number 12) – Cadent (passive)

The twelfth house and this area of a chart is often associated with the correspondence between the inner (secret, or shadow) self and the outer world. The inner world that we are speaking of is the world of fantasy and daydreams, conspiracy and intrigue, it is often associated with an enemy of the subject, or with an event in the subject’s life which leads to a major event, or a bad situation.

Because the planets in this house are representative of the secret side of life, it also can relate to secret or secluded places such as hospitals, asylums, orphanages or retreat centers and similar places. There is a deep relation here to the responsibility of the subject and how well they deal with the karmic issues which may arise by the planetary associations and positions in this house.

There may also be an indication of the wholeness and the beauty that is indicated by this house. This can best be identified as the longing for a union with a greater self, or a higher purpose, or divine being, and the desire to transcend or to grow beyond the personal self to a oneness with all other beings. As the personal self yearns to grow and find greater awareness, the ego may feel threatened and even worried that it’s own place in the subject’s life is at risk of being dissolved.

This house best represents the end of the cycle of the other houses, the way through to a greater self, a more blissful and spiritual state that exists beyond the normal self. Strong planetary positions here may indicate that there is no direction in the spiritual searching of the subject. That there is a need to develpop a compassion and understanding beyond the self. In some way this may describe how the subject helps others, how they achieve the healing, or the transformation that is required to let the shadow self through and how they explore helping and healing others that they relate to in this life.

These are deep and involved issues. They may show themselves early in the life of the subject, yet become hidden, or buried when the subject finds that they cannot be addressed at an early age.  When this happens deep, unconscious issues may be left in the mind of the subject to be worked out at a later age. All of this is indicated by the planets, and the associations found in this house.

It’s a powerful house, and one that requires great study to understand. Positive and well suited positions may indicate past issues that have been resolved in some way, or for those with the greatest skills may represent areas of achievement and self-awareness that have already been accomplished.
