Significations of the Twelve Houses – Part 2: Houses 7–12

Significations of the Twelve Houses, Part 2: Houses 7–12In episode 233 astrologers Kelly Surtees, Austin Coppock, and Chris Brennan get back together in the studio for the second of our two part series on the significations of the houses, this time focusing on the meanings of houses 7 through 12.

In part 1 of our series on the significations of the twelve houses in astrology we spent a lot of time in the beginning talking about different conceptual structures underlying the meanings of the houses, whereas in this episode we just jump right in to talking about the 7th house.

At the beginning we talk a little bit about the more public nature of the houses in the upper hemisphere, as well as how the interrelationship between opposing houses starts becoming more clear from the 7th house forward.

Some of the core significations we talk about for each of the houses:

  • 7th house: relationships, partnership, marriage, the “other” (as opposed to “self”)
  • 8th house: death, inheritance, assets of others, partner’s finances
  • 9th house: travel, foreign things, education, religion
  • 10th house: career, actions, reputation, public life
  • 11th house: friends, groups, alliances, hopes
  • 12th house: enemies, sickness, loss, seclusion

This episode is available in both audio and video versions below.

  • Excellent podcast!! Best house discussion ever!! Toward the end when you’re talking about significations, and the scope of a subject being in more than one house. There are astrologers who use the Rule of 3 very specifically….They do not use only ONE indication of something….but always are looking for 3 indications of something.

  • Just finished all of the episodes of the signs of the zodiac, the planets and the twelve houses. Thankful all of this incredible content and knowledge is shared for free. Thank you!

  • Just listened to this episode. My husband has Mars in the Twelfth house in Sagittarius and he has spent most of his career saving whales. That’s so fascinating because although he studied wildlife biology, he never specifically studied marine biology and yet somehow found himself there.
