Let's start with the basics - in astrology, the sky is split into 12 parts and each is called a house. There are twelve constellations (Zodiac signs) along which the houses travel along. The positon of the moon in one’s natal chart determines even the tiniest detail about his or her life ranging from personality to ego, memory, emotions, ego, how one responds to crisis, how one expresses his or her feelings, how one deals with emergencies, conscious and even subconscious actions.
