How do you tell what planet is in which house?
I’ve read my horoscope on Yahoo! 7 by Yasmin Boland and for this month it says that theres a New Moon is in my 6th house this month. It also says this week Mars is coming into my 6th house. How do you tell when a planet moves in and out of your house? Do you have to be an astrologer/know about astrology to this or are there other ways of telling?

Well, now, this is the problem with the difference between Sun sign astrology (popular astrology) and REAL astrology.
YOUR “houses” can only be found by doing up a birth chart for the day-month-year, hour-minute, and location of your birth.
Houses are areas of the sky. For instance, the part of the sky JUST above the Eastern horizon is “the 12th house”. And the part just BELOW the Eastern horizon is “the 1st house”.
The 1st house is especially significant because the starting point for the 1st house is the Ascendant … your Rising Sign. Some part of some sign was rising AT the time and place you were born.
The ring of the zodiac is always turning (actually, it’s the Earth that is turning, but from here on Earth it looks like it is the zodiac that is moving).
It takes only 2 hours for one complete zodiac sign to rise in the east .. and then it continues to move across the sky and then set in the west. One after another, always, one sign rises after another.
So YOUR rising sign depends on the time of your birth, and the date, and the location too.
Still with me?
Here’s what it means.
No writer can write up for each individual. Because to do a horoscope for an individual means doing up THEIR individual timed birth map (which is what the word “horoscope” actually means .. it doesn’t mean the prediction .. it means the actual map of the skies)
At any rate, they can’t do astrology for their readers, but they CAN give you a list to find ONLY your Sun sign, based on the month and day of birth.
And then they can do write-ups for their readers and get a regular paycheck for writing.
But they have to PRETEND it’s YOUR write-up.
What they do is they pretend YOU were born AT Sunrise. So your Sun sign becomes you Rising sign.
Let’s say you have Sun in Aries (born late March to late April). If Sun is in Aries, and you are born at Sunrise, then Aries has to be the sign that is rising.
The Sun-sign astrologer gives you a fake Aries rising .. Aries 1st house.
Gives you a fake Taurus 2nd house.
Gives you a fake Gemini 3rd house.
Then they look to see where the planets actually are this month, and where the new moon occurs too. And they plunk these into this fake chart.
Which is NOT your chart.
Since the houses of their fake chart are not your actual houses, Mars is NOT coming into YOUR 6th house .. it is coming into the house of whoever has your Sun sign as their Rising Sign. Maybe … maybe only part of that sign is in their 6th house, and Mars will not move far enough into that sign this month to make it into their 6th house.
At any rate, YOUR horoscope has nothing to do with YOU, unless you were actually born AT sunrise .. and even then, the timing will be off. Mars might move into your 6th house this month, or next month, or last month if you were born at sunrise.
Yasmin Boland is selling garbage. She uses Sun-sign writing to suck you in, and then charges you for astrological services.
Yes, you can get your chart done for about $ 30 on her site.
You can get your chart done and get interpretations for FREE on many other sites.
As I said, Sun sign astrology is for making money .. it’s a scam.
alabe.com is an accurate site where you can get your birth chart done for free, and get some simple explanations about it
cafeastrology has excellent write-ups but has some errors in their calculation program, so better do your chart up at alabe first and then only use cafe astrology IF it calculates that same chart that alabe did (compare the degree of your Ascendant in both charts, since that is the factor that changes the most quickly in time).
To know when a planets moves into your house, you have to know what degree of what sign that house is in. And then you just compare that range with where Mars is right now. You must use your birth chart, done up for day-month-year, hour-minute, and location of birth.
For instance, today Mars is at 29:37 Gemini (at midnight in England) .. it moves out of Gemini and into Cancer some time today.
So if your 6th house starts at 2:35 Cancer and ends at 5:19 Leo, then transiting Mars is NOT YET in your 6th house. And it will be IN your 6th house WHILE it is moving between 2:35 Cancer and 5:19 Leo.
However if you do not have Cancer on your 6th house at all, then Mars will be moving somewhere else in your chart .. not even close to YOUR actual 6th house.
How do you know where the planets are on any given day? You use an “ephemeris” .. a table of the planetary positions. Here is a link to a free online ephemeris. The position of each planet is given for where it is at midnight in Greenwich, England, for the start of each day.
