The Basics of Astrology
The Analogy between Astrological Signs and Houses
In astrology, the zodiac signs and the houses are two of the main components of a horoscope. The zodiac signs are based on the Sun's position at the time of birth, while the houses are based on the time and place of birth.
Each of the 12 zodiac signs has its own character traits, strengths, and weaknesses. On the other hand, the 12 astrological houses represent different areas of life.
Although each sign and each house are unique, there are analogies between the signs and the houses that share the same number, i.e., Aries with house 1, Taurus with house 2, etc. Let's take a look at them by summarizing in a few words their resemblance and what differentiates them.
