The 12 houses of vedic astrology set the foundation for your life. The position of astrological bodies within these houses dictate what kinds of energies and forces act on the various aspects that make up your life and your very being.
The first house is ruled by Aries and is sometimes called the rising or ascendent sign.

The first house represents YOU. This house dictates your personality, ego, temperaments, life-views, and all of the characteristics that make up your sense of self. Also, being the first house, it also represents beginnings, such as fresh starts and new ventures. Whatever astrological entity is in your first house will greatly dictate how you act and how others will perceive you.

The positions of the planets can be calculated to determine how your individual houses are filled. Knowing your specific chart is crucial in ensuring that you can proceed through a balanced, harmonious life.
There is an inherent relationship between the energy of the signs, their correlation to the different houses, and the influence of the planets on the interconnected energies and relationships between houses, planets, and rashis.
