The House generally represents our home, foothold, community, origins, and anything domestic. It’s not always a physical house, but often is, and can also represent our workplace and specifically our work department or team as opposed to the bigger company. It often indicates success and the establishment of a solid foundation. It helps things materialize through consistency and discipline. As a space, the House refers to anything indoors as opposed to the Garden which refers to the outdoors. It can take on different meanings from surrounding cards.
IN THE PORTRAIT & GRAND TABLEAU
If it falls on the first or central card of the nine-card layout, the House indicates that our home and family life are very important at this time. Similar advice applies when the Home refers to the workplace. Alternatively, the House can more broadly advise us to build something meaningful, starting with the right foundations. It advises against procrastination as time is ripe to undertake projects and get things done.
In a Tableau, the House near the significator indicates prosperity and success in our projects and affairs, whether domestic or business. But when it’s far or in the middle of the Tableau, and especially below the significator, it asks for caution.
In general, the House advises us to pay attention to our surroundings, with a focus on our physical home and family. As it’s associated with boundaries and demarcations between the inside and outside, it encourages us to set healthy boundaries with others and with our community at large. It also tells us to settle down and start building foundations for our future. It’s time to create something tangible for ourselves.
