Who am I? The First House in the Horoscope

The 1st house in a horoscope, is an Active, Cardinal house. It is the house that can indicate your vitality, your outer appearance (tall, short, skinny, large boned), it can also point out your expectations of yourself and of life. How you interact with yourself and with others, it’s the house of your personality and a bit more.

The 1st house will tell you what is NEW in this reincarnation, what you have not done before, and would like to assimilate during this life. These are traits that you would like to re-visit throughout your life again and again, each time with a different view in mind and each time daring more, being more, well, yourself.

There is a misconception in new age materials that says that you have to get rid of your personality or transcend it. This is a point I would like to stress, you are who you are because you have a role to play, your personality is as cherished as your body is during your lifetime, and the sooner you make peace with yourself (that includes how you look, how you talk, what you care about) your contribution to the world at large will automatically flow out from you.

Your 1st house can liberate you to new self discovery and self expression.  It can help guide you towards your individuality.

Any planet in the 1st house can tell us that the soul is embarking on something new, that a planet has either completed a cycle, or needed a new view of this specific energy use.

Planets in the first house will be visible to everyone who meets you, they will color your appearance and will energize your attitude towards life:First house astrology

Sun in the 1st house – you will want to lead, you will want to find what is unique about you more than anything else. You might hurt people because you will always put yourself and your desires first, please remember that life in not a running match where only one person wins and gets all the glory, but rather a game where everybody contributes to the benefit of all. You will re-invent yourself during life a few times (change careers, families, countries, interests). You will feel less than, until you understand that you don’t need to be perfect, or better than, but you do have to be you as you are with all your uniqueness.

Your good looks will serve you well in this lifetime.

Moon in the 1st House – your feelings will always show, you will not be able to hide them. The question is are you willing to wear them proudly and make the most of this sensitivity, or are you going to hide at home and nurture other people (usually your children) and be afraid of the world at large. The advantages of this moon are that you will keep a young appearance going into old age.
