You don’t always have to restrict one House to a single meaning, and usually, there are multiple meanings due to the relationships that the Houses have to each other. Like the signs that naturally rule the Houses, the Houses also work together also.
Angular Houses (1, 4, 7, 10) are the start of something new, and are often considered the most “important” Houses, but they need the other Houses for support to be functional. Succedent Houses (2, 5, 8, 11) deepen and elaborate on the effect of angular Houses. Cadent Houses (3, 6, 9, 12) gives the person an opportunity to explore, expand, and work flexibly with what is given in the environment around them.
For example, while the 7th House rules our one-on-one interactions, the 8th House takes those relationships a step further and covers intimate relationships from the one-on-one interactions in the 8th House. The 9th House rules beliefs, but it can also give you an opportunity to apply and to explore elements in the world that can help you maintain stronger relationships through various beliefs and philosophies.
While you do need to look at all of the other Houses to really see how every part of you interacts with others through synastry, looking at the relationships between the Houses can really just show you that the Houses aren’t independent, singular areas of life. They all really work together, especially if you have aspecting planets in different Houses.
So I’m getting a lot of asks about future tests...
Here’s my honest update: An Ilvermorny test will eventually be coming, but not in the near future. The truth of it is that I really just don’t have enough canon data or examples of a wide range of characters from each house so that I would be able to draw strong conclusions. Yes, Fantastic Beasts has given us a character from each house, but how much of their traits are really linked to their house, and how much is their specific personality. What makes this blog so accurate is that I really analyze the common threads between all the characters of each house, and why they exhibit this behavior or thought pattern. So basically, until there’s more to work with an Ilvermorny test isn’t coming (eventually it will though).
HOWEVER, what will soon be in the works is a Patronus test from yours truly. This will still take time, as I need to research a vast amount of animals and their symbolic meanings in different cultures, then figuring out how to put that into a test format. So that’s something to look forward to, but it’s going to take a lot of work.
Now i also have some big (DIN A1) and strong paper sheets of my watercolor pattern-designs in my shop. For wrapping big or small gifts, covering books, crafting, scrapbooking or just to put it as a poster on your wall. They come in a double set of two different sheets.
