Empty Houses: What do they mean?



by Kosmic Kelly February 09, 2009 11:58 AM EST

I have just seen your site and have enjoyed reading your articles. Your interpretations resonate with me, so thank you for making these available.

One question, if I may, what are the ramifications if there are no planets in a house in my birth chart? For example, there are no planets at the time of my birth in my tenth house? Can you please explain?

I'll give it a shot! Each house area is influenced by a number of factors. Firstly, there are twelve houses, and each relates to certain areas or themes in life. The tenth house is about work, profession, public life and forms part of the parent axis.
To determine what your experiences will be in a certain house/ life area the first (and arguably most important) energy to consider is the sign ruling the house. House boundaries are known as 'cusps'. The sign on your 10th house cusp (also known as the MC or Midheaven) will give you the most important information about this house area. Next look to the planet that rules this sign (on the house cusp). It will usually fall in some other sign and house in your horoscope. These energies describe sub themes supporting or distracting from your primary career theme (as described by the sign on the 10th house). Finally, if there are any planets in your 10th house, these act as highlight points, describing a key mythology or energetic essence that you will need to master through your professional life (if it's the 10th house in question!)

Most horoscopes have at least one, and usually more, empty houses. A simple explanation is to consider the houses in your horoscope that do have planets in them as areas that will require more of a particular type of energy throughout this lifetime. It doesn't mean things are better or worse for you in this area of life. Some areas of life are easier or harder than others; this has to do with a combination of both the nature of signs/ planets influencing them as well as the strength of these energies at your birth. Hopefully that's enough to get you started!
