How To Find Your Solar House

To know precisely the house in which your Sun is found, you will need to know the time and place that you were born. However if you are unsure you can still make a good approximation (see below).

You can have your chart either cast online, or by a professional astrologer. These days there are many excellent sites that will calculate your birth chart for you quickly, and often for free. But if you would like a copy of your own chart plus an extended Stars Like You analysis of your Sun Sign and House then click here. 

If you have a chart, look for the symbol of the Sun in your chart (a circle with a dot in the middle) and look at the area of the chart that the Sun is found within. Near the centre of the wheel are often a series of numbers (1-12). These apportion each segment of the chart. The number of the segment that your Sun is in will be the number of your Solar House.

If you do not know exactly your time of birth, but have a rough idea, then a fairly close approximation of your Solar House can be found by knowing the time of day that you were born. Use the following quick guide to get an idea of your Solar House. If you are unsure, then the best approach is to be flexible, and read the information for the house that you think precedes as well as follows the one your Sun is likely to be in. That way you can compare the different influences of the houses as they relate to you, and the people that you know.

The best way to learn astrology is to apply it to yourself and the people around you. Use this rough guide, and common sense, to gain a clearer idea of yourself and the people in your world. Then you will have a better idea of what it is that makes you shine!
