Houses in the Horoscope

Houses are nouns, so the cardinal, fixed, and mutable crosses as applied to the 12 houses would be described by nouns.  Years ago, I came up with thought, reason, knowledge, and understanding as the mutable cross, but nothing for the other two crosses.  I think I have a better way now.  Cardinal associates with action, fixed with support, and mutable with curiosity. Fire houses are associated with the spirit, earth houses with the physical, air houses with the intellect, and water houses with the emotions.  Here is a quick description of the houses.

Action – The Cardinal Cross

The first house is action of the spirit. Here we find awareness and the ability to project the spirit. The fourth house is action of the emotions. Here we find to comfort and protection. The seventh house is action of the intellect. Here we find social urges and close relationships. The tenth house is action of the physical. Here we find material ambition and pragmatic achievement.

Support – The Fixed Cross

The second house is support of the physical. Here we find pleasures of the senses, as well as money and possessions.  The fifth house is support of the spirit.  Here we find leaders – who support the spirits of their followers; also we find children and other creations. The eighth house is support of the emotions. Here we find courage and the occult, as well as sex, death, and taxes. The eleventh house is support of the intellect. Here we find the people and organizations that give us verbal support – friends and groups; as well as hopes and aspiration.

Curiosity – The Mutable Cross

The third house is curiosity of the intellect. Here we find the local environment, as well as siblings, thoughts, and communications. The sixth house is curiosity of the physical. Here we find labor and health, as well as the ordering of our days. The ninth house is curiosity of the spirit. Here we find higher education, the foreign and foreigners, and religion and other belief systems. The twelfth house is curiosity of the emotions. Here we find withdrawal from the world, compassion, sorrow, and the hidden.
