Without that understanding, you can’t incorporate houses into your interpretation. However, these are not your interpretations.  e guidelines give you a point of reference and focus. You have to explore the implications of these connections on your own. You need to mix in the house or houses ruled by a planet and incorporate it in the batter.
You do this by choosing a single expression of a house, combining that with the planet, and exploring what that connection means in practical terms. Do not combine multiple concepts! For the 9th house, choose “new
and unfamiliar” or “beliefs” or “ideals” or “higher education,” and address what it means for the ruling planet to be that concept before exploring what it means for the ruling planet to also be a di erent expression of the house.

Her public image is her armor and
her security blanket. It protects her from harm and ensures her survival. If anything disrupts or upsets her reputation, it will cause Walters to feel unsafe.  is can be said for everyone who has Cancer on the cusp of the 10th house.
“For Walters, safety is also her career and professional accomplishments. She needs to succeed and gain prominence in the
