Horoscope Houses

This section provides introduction of horoscope houses.

In horoscopic astrology, 12 houses are used to divide the ecliptic circle. The houses are numbered counter-clockwise. The first house starts at the Rising Sign point.

In most Western astrology practices, 12 houses are not divided equally. There are a number of systems used to assign different sizes to different houses. The most commonly used house system is called Placidus house system, in which house sizes are determined by times for the Sun to travel through different segments of the sky. I could not find any detail descriptions of how each house size is calculated in the Placidus house system.
