I was studying whole sign houses again recently. Someone suggested to track the transits of planets especially outer ones into a house to observe the effectiveness of the whole sign house system. It got me thinking – isn’t that essentially looking at Sun sign columns based on your Ascendant sign? For some time, I have been puzzled on why there is some validity to the monthly/weekly horoscopes that I have been reading online based on my Ascendant sign. It seems that the answer has to do with the concept of whole sign houses – whereby planets entering into each sign/house flavours the affairs of that house.
