Memorize the sphere of influence of each House. Know each house as well as you can. After this, House Rulers will be, relatively, easy. Without a fluid understanding of what each house rules, you will struggle. Like anything else in Astrology, doing is learning. Try to do charts and ask people, if you are right. As you know, there are many levels to a chart. House Rulers is a study of House to House interaction, so if something does not seem right,there will be other factors to explain it, beyond House Rulers. However, with the correct time, House Rulers are, rarely, wrong, in my experience. To pull back and explain House Rulers, so we do not lose the forest for the trees. The purpose of House Rulers is to show the SPHERES of life which are important to a person and how they interact to make up that person’s world ,world view and literal life experience.We do not deal with the IDENTITY of planets, here. Planets are, simply, identified as “Ruler of the First House”, “Ruler of the Second House” etc. So, if one person’s “Ruler of the First House” is the Moon and another persons “Ruler of the First House” is Pluto, it makes no difference.
