First House of The Holy Code Life Chart
What's going on with the first house?
The first house signifies the entrance point of life. It is the 'stargate' of the soul where you make the transition from one dimension of being to another.
This is the point at which your soul has to squeeze into your new body, the mind (perceptions) and the personality (ego) that you created for yourself.
This is the point of introduction to your new life and will always remain as your first response to new happenings while you remain in this body.
All the traits of the first house will be most prevalent in your outer world, the way others see you and the way they will always see you unless you make a personal choice to allow them access to the depths of who you are on a deeper level.
The first house indicates the layer of protection you place around your core to keep you safe and comfortable in your current existence.
All the points of interest in the first house:
The astrological markers, the archetypes, spirit guides (animal, human, other worldly), mentors and talismans are indications of the primary conditions that you set up for filtering through and connecting to the earth realm.
There are three layers to the mask your soul wears in order to maintain your position on this planet – like a specialized spacesuit, your body, your mind and your ego make up the essential components of your 'earthsuit' and these are the things that you will shed when you pass over and go back HOME.
The body is the physical vehicle that you use to get around on earth.
The first house contains the blueprints of your physical conditions, the body you are using. The animal guides will guide you based on their agreements with you. The animal guides in your first house assist you to navigate through the landscape of your own ego. They will keep you close to your core truth.
The astrological aspects are indicative of the stage you set for yourself and will say a lot about what sorts of physical situations you are prone to and how your immediate environment will be responding to you based on your particular coding and programming. Astrology actually says much more about how the world around you responds to your presence and what is expected of you from others than about your inner motivations.
The mind is the mental filter (perceptions) that you are using to navigate through life.
Archetypes in the first house are programs that allow you to process the experiences you have in life and will be most prominent in the 'firsts' of your current life.
Meeting others for the first time, entering new situations and encountering new challenges, and also your personal motivation to seek out new situations in your life, all of this is filtered through your mind which is where the archetypal programs are running.
You placed your archetypal programs accordingly so that your mind would follow certain patterns based on what your goals are for living in this lifetime. These are not the same patterns as the conditioning that comes from social or cultural issues but from a deep and personal soul level.
The cultural and social patterns can also be archetypal but at these levels the programming is less personal and less distinctively yours, they represent more of a collective agreement.
***For example, all human societies have formed an explanation of what the Mother archetype is and what function it plays in each society however if an individual has the Mother archetype in their chart, the characteristics of the archetype will be more personal and bonded to the individual in a specific way.
Exploring personal archetypes means that you must develop an understanding of how you as an individual processes the perimeters of the archetypal program because social conditions may not be accurate in how the individual must use the program in place.
All archetypal programs go through changes and evolve over time in order to be more useful.
To hang on to to the past social conditions of the Mother archetype is to stop growth in humanity. When each individual makes an effort to incorporate the archetypal programming that they chose then the expression of these archetypes is able to evolve on a social level.
Societies that get stuck in old archetypal programs are debilitating. The archetypes will then function as stereotypes and become a hindrance to the people of the society, arresting the development and evolution process of the individuals within.***
The archetype in your first house indicates what your own perceptions are going to gravitate toward in all of your first encounters with people, places and things. It is from the archetypal patterns that you decide what others will see in you until you decide to let them go deeper.
For most people in your life, the first house archetype is the only pattern they will see clearly and from which they base their own opinion of you.
The ego gives you patterns of consistency in your personal behavior.
The ego is usually the first thing you offer to anyone in new situations.
The ego is the first thing that determines how you choose to protect yourself in the world and would be considered the shielding factor in your 'earthsuit' while the mind is the computer chip set in the helmet that runs the rest of the suit's functions and the body is obviously what physical conditions you are working within.
Remember that the 'earthsuit' is the physical body that you inhabit and it is that which contains within it all three of these factors of the first house.
While it is common to separate the mind from the body and further separate the ego from both, the reality is that the true st part of our individual selves is none of these things.
The body, the ego and the mind are the first things to go when we die.
The mind is simply a set of patterns that your soul programmed so that you would stay within certain perimeters throughout your current life. The mind is not where 'you' are and you lose nothing when you discard it.
The ego is simply essential to staying alive on earth. The ego, while in a balanced, natural and healthy state acts as a protection mechanism within the unit of the physical body. When you (as a soul) have made the decision to go back from whence you came, then you must leave the ego behind as it is not needed any longer, just like the physical body.
The most freeing experience is that of moving out of your body and back Home (the otherside, heaven, you know . . .) where the limitations of the physical are removed.
What you have learned from your life does go with you.
As stated above, these points of the first house are mapped out by the influence of your personal animal guides, spiritual mentors, archetypes and astrology. Each chart contains different components and variations.
The Angelic presence is the energy that assists you and the one that you are 'wired' to receive from regarding first house issues. They are ready to help you through the rough spots and the confusing twists and turns that you didn't plan on.
The angel in the first house is the first one to call on in physical situations and issues of ego.
For example, if you want to make a good first impression at a job interview then you'd call on your first house angel for assistance in bringing out the best in you at that moment.
You do not need names or persona's to access your first house angel, simply saying “First house angel, I need your help.” is enough to invite them in for guidance, healing, protection and service.
In the first house you are sticking to the specifics of the three layer 'earthsuit' that you are living through in this life: Body, mind and ego. These are not indicators of your purpose for coming here or your deeper motivations for your earthly experiences.
All the traits of your mind, body and ego are surface traits. This doesn't mean they are superficial, on the contrary, so much of how you are perceived by others comes from this house which has a huge effect on your experience.
This is first contact in every area of your life, the point at which the rest of your life experience unfolds.
The traits here may not go deep into your soul purpose but they do dictate in what ways you impress your presence on others and for the most part the level at which most people in your life will know you. The traits here will also indicate what others are going to expect from you consciously or unconsciously.

Please note: Astrology was used to make a map of the life charts however astrology isn't used in the normal sense or in the accepted ways that are commonly termed as astrology. While I do think that the creation of astrology has some merit as a tool or human made device to understand certain aspects of ourselves, I do not have any certain belief that astrology is any sort of science or something that is forced upon any of us through planetary cycles or any outside influences at all. I do think that the creation of astrology is something that adds to the poetic magic and mysticism of our lives and that we may use it to understand ourselves, our perceptions, our thought processes and also to share these experiences of ourselves with others.
