The Twelve Houses of the Zodiac

The twelve houses of the Zodiac were first set out by the Babylonians and are now used and recognized by almost all of today's astrologers. The houses were discovered when the Babylonians started to observed the natural phenomena associated with ascending and culminating of the heavenly bodies. It was through this that the 12 houses were divided, before the discovery of the ecliptic.

The houses represented different parts of life, numbered from the east downward under the horizon with the first six houses below the horizon and the next six above it. The houses positions depend on time and location as opposed to dates, with each house in your natal chart being ruled by a specific Zodiac sign.
