1st House - Outer Personality, Self-Image & New Beginnings

The 1st house is the house of our outer personality, it's the image others have from us. It's our physical appearance, but also our authentic self and our natural characteristics. It's about our identity, what makes us an individual standing out from the crowd. Our demeanor. Our temperament. Our mannerisms. Our disposition. Our sense of self.

The first house also rules beginnings and new beginnings, including the vitality supporting these (i.e., the initial impulse). It rules our early childhood. What did we experience as a child and how did it shape our development and sense of self? Did it influence our self-image? This house is about the necessary voyage to become a unique individual. What will you become?

The 1st house follows the 12th house, which is about endings.
