The planets and signs that are located in this house on the birth chart influence the cycles in one’s life, with the main focus on endings and regeneration. This is the place where you learn from both success and mistakes and move on.

The natural sign ruler is Pisces, the twelfth zodiac sign on the horoscope wheel, and the planetary ruler is Neptune, the planet of psychic receptivity, dreams and spirituality.


As the last house, this is the place of endings, however, should also be regarded as place where transformation and regeneration are initiated.

It talks about tying up loose ends in life and ensuring you are always in control of an outcome, whether beneficial for you or not.

This is where the individual is confronted with own karma in an effort to advance. This is also the house of hospitals, hospices, jail and other places where he individual may find themselves confined in life.

Spiritual matters
