The astrology code operates in an environmental setting and the Earth provides the setting and the opportunity for souls on developmental journeys to evolve and develop intelligence and ability.
You’re the operator and you operate in an environment that provides events and conditions. You’ve arrived here with a past stored in memory. Your soul is configured in such a way that different memory compartments store the thoughts, feelings and impulses associated with specific events and experiences. It’s a self-organizing memory-system and the houses in your birthchart reveal how events and conditions in the past have built your character.
The 12 houses in your birthchart mark for definite life-matters, activities, interests and people. Each one provides data about the events and conditions that will sustain your intelligence and ability development. You could say that your life experience is a series of events and the houses map the venue and who’s involved. And the functionality of a house – its tendency to express fortunate or unfortunate events – can be measured.
In your birthchart a house that is harmonious marks for fortunate events and beneficial conditions. And a house that is discordant marks for unfortunate events and learning experiences that keep you on your toes. Your life unfolds just as the chart indicates unless you do something and change what’s indicated.

You and your environment have to operate together and the smoother the fit the better. A comfortable fit ensures good-health, mental wellbeing and peace of mind. An uncomfortable fit results in discomfort, discontentment, sickness and disease. An unsupportive, antagonistic environment is a stressor that you have to deal with – but the stressful situations you’re destined to encounter are opportunities for character development.
