Astrology Houses Summarized

There are 12 houses in astrology, and knowing what’s going on in each one is well, vital, in understanding your natal chart. I’ve done my best to gather the essence of each house in this outline. I’ve omitted traditional ruling signs and planets/deities, but you can find those listed in my more detailed breakdown of the houses, which I’ll add a bit later one.
