The Angles are the Cardinal Houses: 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th. They form a cross that divides the chart in half, both vertically and horizontally. Astrologically, these houses give clues to the nature of the Native’s identity. Ego forces, security needs, relationship needs, life purpose. These are dynamic places where our personalities make direct contact with the outer world through our identity formation.
There are also the Succedent or Fixed Houses and the Cadent or Mutable Houses. The Succedent Houses are the 2nd, 5th, 8th & 11th and they deal with circumstances of Possession and Expression. The Cadent or Mutable Houses, 3rd, 6th, 9th & 12th deal with circumstances of Knowledge and Wisdom. We will look at these in more depth during the Houses lesson.

The 12 Houses: A quick refresher
Each House represents a different circumstance in life. The planets that fall into the house will be affected by the house, and colored by the character of the house and the ruler on the cusp.
For example, any planet in your 2nd House, will be given a Taurus like quality, and will directly affect your values and attitude toward possessions.
The Zodiac sign on the cusp is very important as well. Look at the ruling planet of that Zodiac sign to give further information about the house.
