A Guide to the Twelve Astrological Houses and Your Place in the Universe

Read by Esther White

Level up your stargazing skills and learn to interpret your own astrological birth chart with this fun, accessible guide to the twelve houses of the zodiac, perfect for armchair astrologers everywhere!

So you know your sun sign, rising sign, and moon sign…but what about the rest of your birth chart? It’s no longer enough to just to know you’re a Scorpio or read your horoscope. After all, delving deeper into our natal charts and the nuances of the astrological world can offer us a rich, exciting tapestry of our innate preferences, relationships, choices, and destiny

For those in the know, the zodiac calendar is divided into twelve houses, each ruled by a different sign (Aquarius, Scorpio, Gemini, etc.) and said to govern a particular set of traits. When we’re born, where the planets were stationed relative to those houses inform our natural tendencies. Understanding each house can bring detailed insights about every aspect of your life: peoples’ first impression of you, to your values, communication, pleasure, home and family, partnership, and beyond.

In order to fully understand our place in the universe we need to understand the meaning of each planet, the house it’s stationed in, and what that interaction means. Going house by house, practicing astrologer and artist Rachel Stuart-Haas teaches you how to create and interpret your unique birth chart, making this often dense and complicated layer of astrology accessible for newcomers and astrology enthusiasts alike.

With her expert guidance, you will gain insight into questions like:
-Where will I feel at home?
-What career paths fulfill me?
-What do I need in a partner?
-What makes me feel abundant?

Perfect for anyone who has ever been curious about their place in the world, The House Your Stars Built is a must-have and beautiful resource for astrology lovers.
