Rhys Chatham explains how the major house division systems are calculated in a way that does not require any math. Rather than advocate the use of one house system over another, we will simply compare them and look at the various celestial circles upon which they are based, reflecting upon the symbolic implications of each, and how that might impact on chart interpretation. We’ll discuss what distinguishes one house system or division from another, to allow informed choices on which to use, for what purpose, and when. In this talk we will cover the ecliptic-based (whole signs, Equal and Porphyry houses), space-based (Meridian, Regiomontanus, Campanus), and time-based divisions (Alcabitius, Koch and Placidus).
