              Astrology First House Key words 

 I have expanded on this article from many more sources and will be adding up more info in it as times permits. So it is not not complete yet but much more has to be added to it.

 According to Western Astrology following are the keywords for the first house…..

The 1st house affects the appearance and the personality, as it is perceived by the outside world. The rising sign is the degree and sign that marks the cusp of the 1st house and coincides with the first independent breath we take. This is why exact birth time is so critical in casting a natal chart; the chart’s very structure depends on the time and location of birth.

These are the keywords for first house.

The First House is about identity and how other’s see you. This house also rules the personality, attitude, how you see the world, how you look, appearances, your worldly outlook, and self-awareness and how you respond. It describes how you see yourself and how others see you. It can also describe your physical appearance. Other keywords include: the self, ego, anima, projected image, expression of inner motivation, soul purpose, initial approach to life, the aura.Identity,habits, physical characteristics that others see first.
