Other Planetary Bodies (Guide)


Apart from the ten 'main' planets used in astrology, some astrologers include the asteroids like Vesta and Eros. But one 'planetary' body which has become quite important over the past twenty years or so, particularly in psychological astrology, and now included in most software and clients charts is the icy planetoid, Chiron.


In our birthcharts, Chiron represents where we feel wounded in life. This is a collective wound rather than a family/personal issue. It's plancement by sign and house reveals how the world out there makes you feel inadequate in some way, or you feel you've been short-changed.  Chiron in Greek mythology is also known as the 'the wounded healer'.  Chiron does not rule any of the signs, although there are different schools of astrological thought on this.

The Houses (Guide)


The houses are usually (unless using the Equal house method) irregular slices of the chart which tell you which sphere or arena if your life is in focus depending on the planets which occupy it and the house ruler's position in the chart if the house is 'empty'. Each astrological house stands for a particular sphere of activity. The house division of a horoscope varies in each birthchart. This is calculated according to the exact time and geographic place of birth.
