In the widest sense astrological houses represent duodecimal division of a picture of the star sky observed at the moment of the birth from the birthplace. The system of Houses displays Earth rotation round its pivot-center while division into Zodiac signs displays Earth movement on an orbit round the Sun.
Houses are similar to signs, that is the first house corresponds to an Aries, the second – to the Taurus, the third – to Twins and so on.
Interpretation of houses has something the general with interpretation of signs, but, at the same time, there are also differences. If signs – deep power, houses more superficial, but also more much being shown, sobytiyny layer. Houses characterize spheres of life and our relation to them as affairs in each sphere are at us, what events and when will occur.

"The life point" – the Ascendant or top of the 1st house from which it is reckoned all houses, defines external manifestation of the person: his appearance, behavior, lifestyle. Whereas zodiac sign to which the Sun at the moment of the birth gets and by which we usually determine the belonging to this or that zodiac sign, shows more deep, our psychological nature. That is why the people who were born under the same sign so strongly differ. The provision of the Ascendant strictly depends from minutes, and even seconds of the birth, and also on place coordinates in which it occurred.
The elementary calculations show that from people living now on a planet about 400 million people belong to a certain Solar Sign. The number of the people who were born in the same day, from among the living makes about 20 thousand. Each seven hundred people were born a certain minute but if to consider that this minute people were born in various points of a planet, clear there are claims of astrologers for assignment to each horoscope of the status of unique identity. This statement is reflected in a picture of Houses of a horoscope.

In case of the Cancer at top of the fourth house, the domestic surroundings pay much attention to the family past, traditions, natives of a family. In a family archives, letters, documents remain. The family property remains and passes from father to son. The condition can be rather solid mainly from mother.
