Planets in the Twelve Houses

by Michael McClain

How the energy of the planets is felt in the houses

The planets exert a great deal of energy in the house in which they are physically located in the birth chart.  This energy is directed toward the function of the house.  The planets modify the tone of affairs told by the sign on the cusp of the house.  Planets represent action in the horoscope, and the house in which the planet resides is the home of the action in question. Thus, having several planets in one house can make the entanglements of that house very complex and often more significant in the life.

To set the placement of the Sun, the Moon, and the planets in your chart you must have already obtained a copy of your chart and become familiar with the symbols of each planet. If you haven't obtained a free copy of your personal horoscope, visit the Astrodienst website to get one. Check out the symbols here.

Here are readings for the Sun, the Moon, and the planets in each of the twelve houses of the horoscope: 

 Sun   Moon  Mercury  Venus  Mars
 Jupiter  Saturn  Uranus  Neptune  Pluto
 
Here's a little more on planets in houses in case you aren't totally confused already. When you purchase a computer reading of your horoscope, the reading you will get regarding each planet in the houses will surely be the precise house in which the planet is located. However, when you look at your chart, there may be a few instances when this should come into question. Suppose, for example, that the Ascendant (the first house cusp) in a chart is at the 15th degree in Libra, and that Jupiter was positioned at the 13th degree in Libra. That would place Jupiter in the 12th house, right? That's what the computer would say, but many thoughtful astrologers would read this as Jupiter being in conjunction with the Ascendant, and end up reading it as bringing its action to bear in the first house, rather than in the 12th.

This same idea would apply for each and every house cusp. If the planet is IN THE SAME SIGN as the sign on the next house cusp, and close enough to be considered IN CONJUNCTION WITH that next house cusp, the action of the planet will most likely be directed into the oncoming house. In these cases, I might modify my reading to say "Jupiter is in conjunction with the Ascendant (or 5th house cusp, as the case may be), rather than saying "Jupiter is in the xxx house...." In other words, I would consider the "planets in houses" readings as suitable to delineate the conjunction of a planet with the Ascendant or with any other house cusp.

The Sun in Houses sun

The house placement of the Sun shows the area of life where the vital energies generated by the Sun are likely to focus. The Sun associated with any house illuminates the meaning of that house. It does so in the manner discussed in the reading of the Sun sign. Through the life, this energy of the Sun is evident. The subject matter of the house may prove to be the focus of your drive.

The Sun in houses...

Sun in 1st house

The Sun in the first house takes on a strong identification with your Ascendant, and produces an individual that is very true to the nature of this sign. The Sun here provides a strong sense of identity, abundant vitality, and personal confidence. A first house Sun produces much initiative, self-assurance, and leadership skills that might not be otherwise reflected in the chart. You are a more spontaneous and outgoing person than your signs may generally suggest, because you are such a "together" person. You have a determination to make something of yourself. You aren't easily swayed by the opinions or desires of others, having your own clear view of goals. The radiance of the Sun in first house usually produces abundant energy and excellent recuperative powers which help you overcome physical ailments that may come along. In the first house, the Sun gives you a sense of yourself that makes it important to feel that you are important, and in general, a person of significant distinction. The nature of the Sun in the first house produces optimism and gives you a very "sunny" disposition.
 

Sun in 2nd house

The Sun positioned in the second house focuses energies on resources which surely includes money, wealth and all of the possessions and benefits that this can provide; you have a drive for power especially geared toward personal resources, your personal security, and other material values. It is important for you to have control of your financial affairs and to the "Captain of the Ship" in this regard. The need for this material control and success is strong, as is the drive for financial independence. This position usually provides not only the need, but also the ability to succeed in a material sense. There is a tendency to equate power or prominence with money and possessions. Often, most of the energy goes into making money solely for the sake of spending and enjoying it. Indeed, you may be a free-spender even if you truly lack the assets to do so; it is hard to be conservative when it comes to money. The strongest trait that is shown by this placement is the sense of generosity that it often produces. The use of money to help others may be one of your most attractive attributes.
 

Sun in 3rd house

This placement denotes a drive for power in matters regarding mental or analytical accomplishment. It might be said that this placement actually compels you to want to learn and to broadly expand your understanding of many varied subjects. Accordingly, you are likely to remain involved in continuing education and mental development for many years, if not for your entire life. Travel and study are strongly marked in your nature, and you may become a little impatient if you can't move about freely and receive a constant flow of mental stimulation. This placement produces teachers, writers or persons some way involved with enterprises disseminating information. You always communicate so well that you are one of those people who has a faculty for saying the right thing, at the right time. The ability to express ideas effectively is always important to you. You seem to remain ever optimistic, even when things don't go your way. Do be cautious of becoming intellectually over-confident, as it is easy for one with this position to fall into a pattern of intellectual arrogance, especially when dealing with those less well informed.
 

Sun in 4th house

The Sun located in the fourth house denotes deep roots in the home and a strong drive for domestic security. Your personal expression in life is aimed toward family matters and the home environment. A fourth house Sun lends powerful instincts to protect and conserve the traditions and institutions with which you identify; the base of your life, the home. Although the early part of your life may have been an uphill struggle in some way, you were strongly marked and profoundly conditioned by your background, family history, or possibly just by your early environment. You are apt to be very proud of you heritage and origins. This is a favorable position for the Sun as it often produces rapidly increasing prosperity and security in the latter half of life, while increasing the vitality and energy during these later years. The Sun in this house guides interests in land, houses, ecology, natural resources and perhaps issues associated with conservation.

Sun in 5th house

The Sun in the fifth house suggests that you are an resourceful person, and much of the focus in your life is directed toward creative activity.

You may be a little bit of a show-off, or at least one careful always to present yourself at your very best. Yours is a sunny and happy disposition that usually attracts many friends and admirers. You are not one to shy away from taking chances, and for some with this placement, the thrill of a risky but promising gamble is hard to resist. There is a childlike quality attached to this position, and it may be necessary to insure that actions reflect appropriate maturity and subtlety. Don't be too theatrical and egocentric. The self-confidence produced by this placement is strong. Often the focus of attention is on your children, or on children in general. Indeed, you be inclined to work with children is some respect.

Indeed, you seek to distinguish yourself by your efforts and contributions in the workplace. This position often leads to success in positions of administrative authority, also in specialized skills requiring expert craftsmanship. Yet as the boss, you can be very demanding, holding all to the highest standard. If you are on the other end of employer/employee relationship, you can be most demanding and dogmatic toward your employer, insisting on rights and privileges to enhances the role of workers to the highest possible plane. This position also deals with health issues, and wellness and nutrition are issues of scrupulous concern. Physical fitness is also an area of major interest. Frequently, health matters become a major concern and careers in some field related to health and fitness are common when the Sun influence is in the 6th house.
 

Sun in 7th house

This placement denotes a public personality. Your life is strongly integrated and influenced by those close to you; the marriage partner, the business partner. These connections make or break you as you have a propensity to react to the people around than to initiate projects on your own. You are particularly adept at public relations as you know how to cooperate and deal with others. This is a good position for most careers in sales and promotion. The power of this position will always be in relationships, and it will be necessary for you to help others in order for you to shine. Your keen sense of proportion permits you to become an arbitrator, called on to balance one person or faction against another, to maintain an equilibrium.
 

Sun in 8th house

The Sun resides in the eighth house denoting a deep creativity and a large understanding of life. The chief purpose of the Sun in this house is to give you a sensitivity to other people's values and there probably will be some responsibility in this regard.

Sun in 9th house

The Sun in the ninth house is a placement suggesting that your focus may be on idealistic rather than the practical side of affairs. A ninth house Sun often produces the farseeing thinker who expresses ideas on a broad level. You should have lofty and noble motives, but the sense of practicality may at times be lacking. There may be serious interests in spiritual and religious pursuits. Law, religion and philosophy are subject of natural interest. The intuitive mind is highly developed. Your high ideals can be carried too far at times. If you fail to keep these under control, you can become fanatical about them. This can be a very outgoing position, for once you are convinced you have the answers to the weighty questions attracting your concern, you will want to share your insights with all that will listen. The ninth house Sun likewise has a desire to cover distances physically. There is a strong desire for exploration and travel, for knowing first hand and understanding foreign culture and viewpoints.
 

Sun in 10th house

This placement denotes fame and honor, or sometimes scandal. In either case, this position is one that suggests you will be noticed. You are driven to reach a station of authority, power or responsibility. Often, this is an indicator of some degree of worldly honor, political power, or professional achievement of special note. Your example inspires others and your determination to make a name for yourself will likely lead to a growing reputation. Few with this elevated Sun remain obscure. Respect and social standing are necessary for you, and you may have been born to these. In a certain sense, the term nobility may fit you. You abhor anything demeaning to your dignity and moral respectability.
 

Sun in 11th house

This placement gives the assistance needed from those in a position to help you achieve your goals. You will work toward major goals and objectives within the framework of friends, associates and group activities. You have a strong drive to gain recognition through mental achievement within a group. An eleventh house Sun person achieves through association with others, and often with the help of friends. You are likely to have ambition for group leadership, and you are inclined to rise to a position of leadership or spokesperson. Your approach to life is very liberal and broad-minded, the humanitarian who would prefer popularity to power. The self becomes sacrificed for the achievement of broad goals and objectives. The support of friends is always a paramount issue.
 

Sun in 12th house

This placement denotes a private drive for self-perfection. You are one who will seldom receive full recognition for your efforts and accomplishments, but you easily accept roles of relative obscurity. You are somewhat introverted and love the peace and solitude such a situation often affords. If you were left to your own devices and permitted to, you could live a contemplative life. If you display leadership, it will likely be a "behind the scenes" role. Service to others provides you with recognition and fulfillment. Psychology and psychic research may be of considerable interest for you. While there may be indications in other parts of your chart that you need people, you are likely to feel somewhat estranged from others even when in the middle of a group. You need to spend a good deal of time by yourself. You should not be too concerned by feelings of not-belonging, and by failures to mix well with others. Your role may be that of investigation and obtaining understanding, rather than socializing and the attainment of status.

Moon in Housesmoon

The house in which the Moon is placed at birth is the sector that feelings and emotions will be most apparent. It's here you react unconsciously, and as you have been conditioned in your upbringing. Often this placement will give some clue about the activity that occurs on the domestic scene.

The Moon in houses..

Moon in 1st house

The Moon in your first house suggests that your feelings are hypersensitive and play a significant role in the definition of your personality. This is a personality that is very malleable. You make easy and quick adjustments to the demands of the moment. It's hard for you to be sure just what to do, because you are continuously in a restless state. It's also hard for you to make long-range plans because of the fluctuations in feelings. Frequent mood changes mark your personality. If you are not busy revising your goals and objectives, you are probably procrastinating and unsure about what you want to do and where you want to go. You are both sensitive and responsive to public opinion, so you are easily influenced by those around you.
 

Moon in 2nd house

The Moon placed in the second house indicates periodic changes in the conditions of your finances. Money and material possessions are important to you for the emotional security they bring. Because of this, you are especially shrewd and acquisitive. Your emotional well-being, in general, is dependent on material comfort. Emotional insecurity is amplified when any problems with finances are experienced, and this can have a strong impact on domestic affairs.

Moon in 12th house

The Moon in the twelfth house projects its influence in this sector of the chart. This placement gives a love of introspection and a need for periodic retirement from the confusion and business of the world in general. This placement is going to cause you to feel emotionally isolated from others since it is difficult for you to find emotional stability in other people. You are extremely impressionable and respond to subtle influences of those around you. With such a strong sense of charity, a release is needed to in some way be able to help others. There is opportunity for success in work within large institutions such as hospitals, the government, or large corporations, and usually for the public welfare. While you are subject to emotional chaos, you have serious difficulty expressing your emotions. The twelfth house Moon denotes a need for security that is often fulfilled though withdrawal.

Neptune in Housesneptune

Neptune, the planet of higher spiritual forces and unrealistic behavior

Neptune's spot in the horoscope may show that area of the life where sacrifices are likely to be necessary. Neptune has to do with the psychic.

This denotes strong and unconscious emotional ties with one's home and family. The lesser dominate of your parents may be somewhat psychic, or at least a distinctive personality in some way. There is a sense of uncertainty attached to the home environment, and this is often caused by some behind the scene problem, such as an alcohol or drug abuse in the home. You may have a strong desire to live near the water. As you grow older, by choice, you may become more reclusive and withdrawn.
 

Neptune in 5th house

Neptune, in the fifth house, imposes an influence on romances, the ability to be creative, and upon offspring. This placement shows an intuitive gift for role playing. Perhaps you have a talent for acting, or at least a strong love of theater, the movies, or about any kind of fantasy make-believe or image-making.

Neptune in 8th house

Be particularly careful with matters relating to taxation, the handling of insurance matters, and all legal dealings.
 

Neptune in 9th house

Neptune in the ninth house suggests a strong association with matters of higher education, philosophy, religion, and travel. This placement suggests a mind that is impressionable and highly intuitive. You are somewhat susceptible to embracing out of the ordinary religions or philosophies (such as astrology). In higher education, the study or teaching of the arts is likely. This position also shows confused interaction with in-laws caused by a lack of understanding of these individuals or their lack of understanding of you.
 

Neptune in 10th house

Neptune in the tenth house suggests some spiritual ideas regarding the career and public recognition. This placement suggests a degree of confusion surrounds the career, and it may be particularly difficult for you to settle on one. Your public image may not clearly reflect you actual persona or the private self.

Neptune in 11th house

Neptune in the eleventh house denotes an influence upon your hopes and dreams, and those friends and organizations with whom you associate.

You may have a tendency to associate with people that are considered by normal standards to be very usual, and in some cases real oddballs. You're likely to be a schemer and a plotter. You dream big dreams and your hunches are often correct. Yet be sure your dreams are based on realistic and attainable goals.
 

Neptune in 12th house

Neptune in the twelfth house imposes an influence on issues in the realm of your subconscious. A twelfth house Neptune sometimes produces fears and neurotic problems arising from the past. There is a tendency to be deeply involved with the unfortunate side of life. You may have a great compassion for people who are the outcasts of society, or those with physical or mental problems. This is an indicator of deep introspection and sometimes a cloistered life, preferring this to the commotion of the mundane sphere.

Pluto in Housespluto

Pluto, the "planet" of struggle and revolutionary changes 

Although Pluto is no longer recognized as a planet, its influence in astrology is well studied now for almost three quarters of a century.  Pluto's place in the chart marks the house in which revolutionary changes often occur. This dwarf planet represents reforming and regeneration. Pluto is a powerful influence for some individuals, and its presence in a house suggests a power struggle may also be found in this house.

Pluto in houses...

Pluto in 1st house

Pluto positioned in first house results in an increased intensity to the personality and a more powerful will. Your personality is magnetic, and you often crave power, as the ego is very strong. You may have an expanded sense of initiative, but find it more difficult to work with people than your Ascendant suggested. This is because of the powerful and dominating tendencies in your nature. There is also a mystery here, as you are a difficult person to get to know. Conformity is never easy for you.
 

Pluto in 2nd house

Pluto positioned in the second house results in an enhancement of any drive you may have for acquiring material resources. You are resourceful in making money, often perceiving hidden opportunities others may overlook. Mining operations or research projects often produce gain. In certain cases, the legitimacy of methods employed in gaining wealth can be questioned. The financial circumstances can be subject to wide swings of gains or losses.
 

Pluto in 3rd house

Pluto in the third house shows the possibility of disruptive occurrences altering your early childhood, family relations, and education. This position adds a penetrating dimension to your mind.
