The First House

The First House is the House of Self

It is the most personal and most powerful House in your chart, for it symbolizes you—your mannerisms, your style, your disposition and temperament.
This is the House of your outward behavior, your likes and dislikes.
The First House reveals both the way you present yourself to others and the way the outside world sees you.
It often indicates your physical characteristics, especially your head and facial features. Sometimes called the House of self-interest, it denotes what you want in life and how you go about achieving it.
The place in your chart at which this House begins is the most important point in a horoscope, for it determines where all the other Houses will follow. In astrology the First House is thought of as a giant lens through which the rest of your chart is seen and interpreted.
