This is the house of marriage, partnerships, relationships, balance, relating to others, harmony, justice, working with others, ties, enemies, rivalries, pairs, friendships, one-on-one’s, love, cooperation, parties, social gatherings, projections, mirroring another, and understanding people as a whole.
Symbolically, water is our emotions. Air is our thoughts. An air sign, or someone who has a lot of air in their chart, will usually rationalize their emotions. This is the reason that passivity happens among air signs. While it is great to be considerate of others people’s feelings, we must also feel our own feelings and allow them room for expression; otherwise, instead of feeling them, we only think about them. This can cause a buildup of unsaid words left inside of us.
***The first house is our demeanor, the way we carry ourselves, our natural body language, the beginning of our lives, how we define ourselves, our basic ego and personality, our self-identity, how present ourselves to others, our outward sensitivities, our individual characteristics, and our basic, noticeable qualities.***
