Astrology Basics: 12 Houses + Mood Boards

This is the third and last part of the Basics of Astrology series. This one is all about the houses in Astrology. Houses are the home of the 12 zodiac signs and each of the houses is ruled by a planet. The different houses represent all the areas that life is made of. They show us where we experience the energies of the different signs we have (sun sign, moon sign, venus,…).

As I already did in the first parts, also with this one I created mood boards for each house to visualize the characteristics. 

Here you can check out the first part, where you can learn about the 12 zodiac signs and their characteristics. The second part is about the ruling planets in Astrology.
