It is important in astrology to be able to locate certain patterns or dominant influences based on the placement of planets in houses and the particular sign a house is in. It is within these placements where we can begin to see possible trends and karmic influences occurring within a particular area of a chart. This can show where there are dominant tendencies, ease and support, or hardships and lack of support within a person’s life, depending upon where the planets, signs, and houses are located relative to each other. To continue there will be a birth chart of Jerry Garcia provided, along with a brief explanation of the 3 most dominant houses that I chose within his chart and specific indications and examples to show if each house is supported or troubled. The houses that will be covered are 1, 10, and 7.
