The divisions or catagories of Life governed by the individual Houses:
The Personality, Temperment, Disposition, Health, and Physical Buildand Appearance of the Subject. This house represents the subject as s/he appears to others. It has a bearing on personal manners, and all forms of outward behaviour.
Possessions, and the Subject's attitude concerning them. One's worldly resources. The sign placed on the cusp may indicate a lucrative source of income for the Subject.
The Family, siblings, cousins, etc. School life, education, communications, letters and books. Short journeys, vehicles (including automobiles, bicycles, busses, etc.). Speech. The Mind. The Subject as related to their environment. Self expression in daily life.
The Home. The beginning and end of life. This house along with the tenth has a certain bearing on one's parents - their personal status and home life depend on them to some degree. Houses, land and private life.
Creativity, children, pleasures, holidays, enterprises and new beginnings, speculation, gambling, sports, love affairs, and objects of instinctive affection (pets, playmates, and sweethearts). If a planet is seriously afflicted, loose behaviour and self-indulgence can easily occur.
Work, subordinates, servants; Health, although physical well being cannot be entirely assessed from it.
Relationships, both personal and business in nature. The sign on the cusp of this house often indicates a good marraige partner (it may be stressed in their chart).
Money inherited. Shared feelings. Life force elements of sex, birth,
death, and attitudes towards death and the afterlife. Big business.
The Stock Exchange, Insurance companies, etc. Crime.
Higher Education, study in depth of profound subjects, mental exploration, long-distance travel, foreigners, languages, moral ideals, conscience and dreams.
All matters outside the home, aspirations, ambitions, public standing. Personal occuapation/career, and atainment within it. Social status and responsibilities, a sense of discipline, and matters affecting outward appearance and the Subject's personal image.
Public pleasures, friends aquaintances, clubs and societies, objectives in life, and the more detached contacts made in day to day affairs. Intellectual pleasures, as opposed to the more physical or sporting forms of relaxation.
Need for seclusion, service to others, self sacrifice, often as a result of a partner's illness. Escapism, the unconscious. The presence of many planets in this house is an indication of negative escapism. (including susceptibility to Drugs).
The MidHeaven (Medium Coelis, or M.C.)
The Outward expression of one's individuality, and the Ego, are both strongly affected by the MidHeaven. The MidHeaven is especially important in career matters.
(Note: The MC and the Tenth House should not be confused.
The Characteristics of both may be in alignment, but they do
not always coincide.).
