Introduction to House Rulerships

This page deals with an astrological technique known as House Rulers. When the planetary ruler of the sign on a house resides in another house then there is a special link between the affairs of both of those houses. The ruler of a house is found by looking at the sign on a house cusp. 

For example:
 If Gemini is on the 2nd house cusp then Mercury is the house ruler for the 2nd house in that particular chart. If Mercury is posited in the 4th house, then we can make a statement as follows. The ruler of the 2nd house is in the 4th house. Then a likely interpretation can be made. The best way to understand this technique is to read the paragraphs below.

House rulerships are often overlooked, but I have found them to give very important information and I use them extensively to glean patterns from a chart. I consider this technique to be of major importance when looking at a chart.

The "houses" of the horoscope deal primarily with your earth plane experiences. As such, the tone of these interpretations may appear to be more "predictive" in nature.

Since there are literally hundreds of associations for each house, not all statements will apply absolutely to your experience. The possible combinations are unlimited. I have used the most common associations. Here we are exploring just some of the various options that may exist in your chart based on the links between these twelve major areas of life, the Houses of the Horoscope.
