The First House is often known as the house of self. The main point of the first house is the “home of the ascendant”, the sign that was rising on the eastern horizon at the exact moment of your birth. By thinking of this in terms of sunrise and new starts, you can begin to understand the idea of the first house.
New beginings are often centered on the individual; the self and the attendant voyage of discovery define a person. Who you will become, who you are and what you need to do to be your best self. The first house speaks to the realisation of your potential. This process of becoming your own individual is one of the best things we can do in our lives.
