This is a bit of a chart. The houses are numbered on the inside wheel. In this example, the 5th, 6th and part of the 7th house is shown.
The lines that separate the houses are called “cusps”. A planet falling between the boundaries of a house are said to be in the house.
In this case, Mars, the Sun, Uranus and Mercury are in the 6th house.
Here you see the numbers on the house cusps highlighted. Check the top one. 27 degrees, 21 minutes, Cancer.
The middle cusp is 27 degrees, 21 minutes, Gemini.
Now lets say there is a new moon @ 29 degrees Cancer. It would fall in the 7th house!
It would not fall in the 6th house with the other planets in Cancer, because it’s on the other side of line / cusp / boundary between houses!
Now here comes your test. See if you can figure out where these transits would fall in the chart shown.
- New moon @ 15 degrees Leo
- New moon @ 3 degrees Gemini
- Full moon @ 26 Virgo
- New moon @ 29 Aries
