|This page links to 11 pages indicating the behaviour of the
planets in the signs using the keywords. This page contains (obvious)
cautions on applying the keywords in the linked pages without some thought.

Links to the Using the Keywords for the Houses:
These sections are ones where we are learning to combine the keywords for the various items in the horoscope. These are isolated snippets which would not be taken on faith in a real horoscope. While we need to take into account the planets, the Houses, the houses and the aspects, the whole set of these amounts to thousands of items. And we need to start learning somewhere in a simple way.
If this material was taken literally and put together in a horoscope, there would almost certainly be contradictions or many contradictions between the items on the various pages. One thing may say one thing and another may say the direct opposite. But as said in the previous paragraph, we need to start somewhere with some simplicity.
Also many or all of the examples assume that the planet in a sign or house is positively aspected. When this isn't the case, the interpretation would change somewhat, perhaps change a lot.
While these aren't exactly opposites, they do require some reconciliation. This is something that is very difficult for a computer program to do, and requires someone to take into account more factors to see where and when the person might show one kind of behaviour rather than the other.
Nonetheless, we must start somewhere, and it seems that by studying the planets in the houses, we begin to build the skills we need to interpret charts. By learning simple relationships in isolation, we can later build on this practice to interpret charts with more understanding.
The ten planets in the twelve signs make 120 combinations. If we include the Ascendant, MC, and the Moon's Nodes, then we have 168 combinations. Combined with the twelve Houses we have 2,016. Of course, the rulers of the Houses/Signs will increase this by another 12: 24,192. There will, of course be aspects to be taken into consideration.
