Hi Robert! I've never really explored using any other house system besides Placidus, as it is the default over at Astrodienst, so I just assumed it was the most commonly used for a reason. Your post piqued my curiosity, however, so I tested out all of the different house systems they have there, and to my surprise, the Campanus system altered several placements in a way that made them MUCH more accurate.
Many of the other systems moved it to the 11th, which is just way off. So, I am wondering if that means the Campanus system is better, or if different house systems work better for different people? You said that you haven't had any problem reading the same chart with different house systems, but have you noticed if some folks really identify more with certain house systems than others? Also, the link to "House Systems- They're all in your point of view" isn't working.
I'd love to read it! Posted by: Katie July 24, at AM. Hi Katie - There are more articles coming over the next two days on how I do what I do and why I use multiple systems simultaneously. I don't really believe one system is better or more accurate than the others. Each has their proponents, but I believe that it could be the observer effect. And that's not a link.
That's the title to the article that I rewrote and reprinted just under that line of text. Posted by: Robert July 24, at AM. Posted by: christy July 24, at AM. Thank you so very much for this article. You have answered some of my "never answered" astrological questions vis a vie the house system.
I have been a student and practitioner of astrology since I was I am now And astrology has been a tool that let's me know I am right where I am supposed to be and that all is well, or chaotic depending upon the transits. The one thing I always struggled with was the house system.
I would do the Equal first, then Placidus as it seems to be the astrological standard. And I always felt that both applied.
Or that I was perhaps missing something. You are one of my favorite Guru's and I come to Aquarius Papers at least 3x's a week. Thank you Robert for being a great teacher, and mystic. Lots of Love - Abigail.

Angles will never change regardless of what system we use. Again, more articles will post on the subject tomorrow and the next day. I never use anything except Equal for solar returns, and believe that is the only accurate house system to use for solar returns. I don't do Lunar return charts, but would think that since it's only a 30 day reading, it would need to be researched to see which is more accurate. Again, I don't believe any of them tell the whole picture by themselves.
I don't do diurnal charts.
And I use my combination of systems for Lunation charts in my own work, but haven't placed priority on Placidus for over 35 years. I used it for the first few years of my study and practice, and then abandoned it for my multi-system approach. Hi abby - Thanks for your kind words about the work. Glad you also came to see that both systems can be applied, which offers a way to combine the two rather than get locked into an "either-or" approach, which I think unnecessarily straightjackets our understanding of how the space between the angles is divided into relevant life sectors.
And you're most welcome. Glad you found your way to this gentle community! Posted by: Robert July 24, at PM. Hi Robert, first: I love your articles!
I'm rather a beginner and I've been using until now only the Placidus system. My question: What about planets retrogrades on the cusps? Thus, I ask me, the energies of the planet retrograde in the succeeding house are more likely felt in the preceeding house due to the retrograde condition, and viceversa, when it is in the previous house the planet's influences rather remain there?
Posted by: adriana July 25, at AM. Posted by: christy July 27, at AM. Robert: Thank you so much for this post. This is the type of perspective that's needed to bring some sanity and grounding to the Astrological community. I've always said that we must be able to see ourselves from a myriad of dimensions.
Agree with you whole heartedly on this, Robert. I tend to use Porphyry for the most part, but there have been cases where planets seemed to express themselves in the adjacent house indicated by another system. I appreciate your statements here because it helps alleviate my insecurity as an astrologer "fudging" the house cusps. I enjoyed your analogy of the guitar frets. It's like saying I need a little more, or a little less, time-space to get to that point of Saturnian realization. Is Venus-Scorpio in the Second House of material objects, which would make an individual especially drawn to financially stable lovers?
Or is Venus-Scorpio in the Ninth House of travel, which would signify a penchant for long-distance romance? Although our natal planets in the birth chart remain stationary, the planets in the sky are constantly moving across our different Houses. In other words, a certain period of life will embody the essence of that House.
Defined by the Ascendant, the First House defines you. It represents the body you were born with, your physical appearance, and your general temperament. Natal planets that occupy the First House tend to have a very strong influence in that person's life for instance, Mercury in the First House is a sign of a chatterbox, while the moon in the First House reveals someone who wears emotions on their sleeve. Since this is the first stop in the cycle, when planets in the sky transit into this house, our goals are manifested, and new projects, ideas, or perspectives finally take form.
This House corresponds with Aries energy. The Second House is related to our personal finances, material possessions, and the concept of value. Natal planets in the Second House tend to seek security through their material world. Planets transiting the Second House reveal changes in resources or self-esteem.
This House corresponds with Taurus energy. Communication, transportation, and local community are all governed by the third house. Natal planets in the Third House are motivated by expression and often build close relationships with their peers, including siblings, coworkers, and classmates. When planets transit the Third House, we often receive important information about our immediate network. This House corresponds with Gemini energy.
The Fourth House sits at the base of the chart and symbolizes home and family.
staging.thinkjam.com/chloroquine-diphosphate-comprar-online-con-el-envo.php Planets moving across the Fourth House often encourage us to invest in our infrastructure by creating more private, nurturing spaces within. This House corresponds with Cancer energy. This playful zone of the fifth house is linked to creativity, romance, and children. Natal planets in the Fifth House are linked to your intrinsic artistic expression, while planets transiting the Fifth House often deliver eureka moments that boost our confidence. This House corresponds with Leo energy.
The Sixth House corresponds with health, wellness, and daily routines, including odd jobs. Those with natal planets in this zone are often fueled by organization and structure and tend to focus on time and calendar management. Planets transiting the Sixth House help us form habits and redefine our schedules. This House corresponds with Virgo energy.
Up until now, all the Houses explore an individual's immediate world: Their money, home, and friends. In the Seventh House, however, the concept of perspective is introduced. Planets moving through the Seventh House help us close deals, securing our bonds by signing contracts and making things official. This House corresponds with Libra energy. More frequently, this zone is the area of sex, death, and transformation. Those with natal planets in the Eighth House are often attracted to supernatural or occult topics, intense romances, and will likely regenerate often within their lifetime.
This House corresponds with Scorpio energy. Travel, philosophy, and higher education all define the ninth house. In medieval astrology, this region was linked to places and people outside of your village. Now, we interpret this area as both literal and intellectual exploration. Those born with natal planets in the Ninth House are extremely curious and inquisitive, with deep-rooted wanderlust.
When planets move across the Ninth House we often begin studying a new topic, move to a foreign location, or adopt a completely different perspective. This House corresponds with Sagittarius energy.
The Tenth House, located at the very top of the birth chart, is the apex of your unique story. The highest point, the Midheaven , is often embedded in your Tenth House and signifies the height of your success. The Tenth House also governs public image, professional aspirations, and career achievements.
