Triple Division – Houses

by Alison Price

Triple Division Houses

The twelve houses can be divided into three groups.

This is known as the triple division of the houses.

There are Three Divisions

  • The first division
  • The second division
  • The third division

The first triple division starts below the ascendant. There are four houses in each triple division. Each triple division has one of each of the four natural houses (by sign) of the elements of fire, earth, air, and water

Using the usual planetary count of only the visible planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn and thus seven planets in all) count the planets in each triple division to find the strength or weakness.

Triple Division Strength

Triple divisions are strong when they contain five or more planets, or they are weak when they have no tenants.
