Quadrants Layout

There are four quadrants; the first, second, third, and fourth quadrants.

They are numbered starting from below the ascendant and in an anti-clockwise direction.

Quadrants are formed by the Ascendant/Descendant axis and the MC/IC axes which cut the chart into four.

The quadrants are not usually equal in length when measured in longitude.

However, the two quadrants which are opposite to each other are the same size, that is the first and third quadrants and the second and fourth quadrants.

 



Houses in Quadrants

The first quadrant has the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd houses which are found between the ascendant and the IC.

The second quadrant contains the 4th, 5th, and 6th houses which lie within the IC and the descendant.

The third quadrant is made up of the 7th, 8th, and 9th houses between the Descendant and the Midheaven.

The fourth quadrant covers the 10th, 11th, and 12th houses contained betwixt the Midheaven and the Ascendant.

 

Quadrant Emphasis

A quadrant is emphasized when it has two more planets than any other quadrant.

First Quadrant

Self-development (private – self) – Life

The first quadrant is known as the fire quadrant as Aries is on this cusp in the natural wheel.

When the first quadrant is emphasized you are an independent individual. There is a focus on yourself and your needs. You want to make an impression on the world.

Second Quadrant

Self-expression (private – other) – Endings

The water quadrant is the second quadrant because in the natural chart Cancer a water sign, is on the cusp.

When this quadrant is emphasized your identity is based on your family background. You are considered both skilled and capable. You may be sensitive in relationships.

Third Quadrant

Self-expansion (public – other) – Relationships

The air quadrant is the third quadrant because Libra and air sign is naturally in this position.

When the third quadrant is emphasized, you forsake your individuality to merge with a partner. Your philosophies expand through your experience of purposeful partnerships. You are quite happy to play your part in society.

Fourth Quadrant

Self-transcendence (public – self) – Substance

The earth quadrant is the fourth quadrant as Capricorn is on this cusp in the natural wheel.

When the fourth quadrant is emphasized through your personal efforts and friends, you may aid humanity.

You focus on your career for individual accolades. Having solitary meditation is crucial for your well-being.

The Quadrant Ruler

The quadrant ruler is the planet ruling the cusp of the angle.

If the quadrant ruler is in its own quadrant, it gains status.

The quadrant ruler needs to be noted if a quadrant is emphasized.
