6th House

Health & service
Daily routine, practical skills, work & relations at work
How & where you help others and contribute to the world

The next 30° of sky that become visible over the eastern horizon from 10-12 hours after birth (or from the moment a chart is drawn up) is called the Sixth House. Called “Valetudo” or “Health” in Latin, this house is all about your health and service. It covers our skills and attitude when it comes to work, along with how we process the daily minutiae of mundane life. It also indicates how you help others and contribute to society, and attitudes toward health. Any planet that may occupy this house exerts its influence on your attitude toward work or your own health. If there are no planets in this house, it may indicate that you don’t spend a lot of conscious energy in this part of your life, that things in this sector flow without needing extra effort, or that you aren’t working on major life lessons in this area during your current lifetime.
