Meanings of the Planets in the Solar Houses

The three-level world of astrology: the twelve mundane houses surround the twelve Zodiac signs and the seven planets, with the earth at the centre. The entire system is shown to be under God's control. The British Library, C.54.c.9.

The student understands clearly that the position of the Houses never varies; House I. always occupying the space devoted to the Zodiacal Sign Aries in our original design of the Zodiacal Circle, while the Zodiacal Sign of Nativity must be placed in this House I. in each particular case.

THE THIRTY-SIX DECANS

Now that we have obtained a pretty fair and accurate idea of the three main elements of Astrological lore, to-wit: The Signs of the Zodiac, the Planets and the Solar Houses, I want to enter into some further revelations which you will not find in any other works of the kind published on this side of the water or in England.

You have doubtless noticed by this time that words in every-day use, such as “jovial,” “saturnian,” “mercurial,” “sunny,” applied to the dispositions of the human temper correspond with remarkable exactitude to the names given by Astrology to the various planetary types.

THE SUN ☉

The Solarians — or those born under the influence of the Sun — are of an average size, handsome and well built; their complexion has a sort of golden tint; their hair is often a beautiful blond color, wavy and abundant; their forehead is well developed but too high; it denotes at once the uncommonly brainy type of the subject.
