Join me, Sara Shipman, on a grand tour of the planets, signs and houses of your natal chart. The planets signs and houses are the foundation of every astrological chart analysis and, in this book, I’ve set out my approach to this subject with a down to earth analysis of the meanings associated with each of the planets signs and houses in your natal chart. This is the first in a series of five books that will provide you with all you need to know to begin interpreting your birth chart.

What will you learn about the Planets Signs and Houses?

  • First, you will learn how your birth chart relates to you and your life in very real and meaningful ways.
  • You will discover how the planets represent the totality of your psyche; All of the elements of your mind, spirit, energy, values, desires, sense of purpose, emotional needs – and so much more – are symbolised by the planets from the Sun through to Pluto.
  • You will discover how the signs express their energies and influence how you experience all the different parts of your inner – and outer – life.
  • You will learn what is represented by the houses in your natal chart and how they connect with your lived experience.
  • Finally, the ‘keywords’ for each planet, sign and house will make it easy for you to begin putting your own interpretations together.

Planets Signs and Houses – if you’d like to read more…

The Amazon free preview gives you a good idea of how Planets Signs and Houses is written, but if you want to read a little more, here are a few excerpts that I hope will give you a good idea of what this book is about..

From Chapter Two, ‘The Planets in Astrology – Mars’

The evening before I wrote this section I watched a football match on TV. There was Mars in all his glory embodied in the young, aggressive, competitive and athletic young men on the football pitch. And in the baying and chanting of the testosterone-fuelled supporters in the stands. Not all of the crowd were men, but you don’t need to be male to exercise your Mars function.

The traditional images we associate with Mars – warriors, battles and slaying your enemies in gruesome fashion – are appropriate for a god of war, but are they appropriate for civilian life where the Mars function is more about getting you out of bed in the morning rather than preparing  you for mortal combat?

Mars energises and propels you towards the things you want in life, so if we think of Venus as the planet that is associated with your desire nature – the things you want – Mars is the force that enables you to go out and get it. As long as Mars gets what Venus wants then all is well. And if not? Be prepared to be lost in the famous ‘red mist’. We know how aggressive and violent those crowds can be when their team loses.

From Chapter Three, ‘The Signs in Astrology – Pisces’

Pisces energy (if you can call it that) motivates us to escape from the rigours of mundane existence and, some would say, the rigours of life itself. Without getting too life-threatening about it, when we have planets in this sign they point to the part of our psyche that prompts us to escape. When you were reading about Neptune earlier in this book, you will recall my old Pisces friend who ran away to sea – for about three years in total.

His reason for doing so? Ostensibly to get away from a damaging, booze-fuelled relationship with another Pisces. He used the time at sea to put himself back together before he could face life in the real world once more. His extended time-out was an escape that led to a personal voyage of discovery – and eventual dry land. With Pisces energy we sometimes have to lose ourselves before we find out who we really are.

From Chapter Four, ‘The Houses in Astrology – The Sixth House’

The answer to that question lies in life itself and, once again, I’m going to remind you of the purpose of your solar journey. It may seem like a cliche but the phrase, ‘to be the best person you can be’ is somehow appropriate when you’re in the sixth house. Becoming the best version of yourself is not an automatic process and in the sixth house you are reminded of that.

You may have talents, skills, good looks and all kinds of assets but unless you develop a solid work ethic, good living practices, a sense of personal responsibility and a realistic plan you will be unlikely to master the basic life-skills required to function as a competent human being. It’s in the sixth house that you will be confronted with the choices and decisions you need to make (or avoid making) if you are going to bag yourself a serious upgrade in the quality of life department.
