House System Help

After ordering and then being sent back to fill out the birth data form, Dr Z is going to ask you to choose which "house system" you want to use for your reading or report. The default and recommended house system is Koch.

However you can also choose:

  • Campanus
  • Equal
  • Placidus
  • Porphyry
  • or Regiomantanus.

Need some help deciding which house system to select? Breathe easy... and remain calm...

1. If you've never had a chart reading and/or report done before, then don't sweat it. Dr Z highly recommends using the default house system of Koch (and then continuing to request Koch regardless of where you might order another chart reading).

2. However, if you've had a chart reading and/or report done before (but you're still rather clueless about house systems and/or that there's even such a thing as different house systems) - then it's most likely that your previous readings/reports have been calculated using either the Koch, Placidus, or Equal House System. These 3 house systems tend to be the most popular, with Placidus being the most common.

A few astrologers use Placidus because they are actually convinced that it's the best house system out there, but quite a few use Placidus for no reason other than it's what everybody else uses. Astrologers that use either the Koch or Equal House Systems, typically do it for actual reasons.

  • So, if you've chosen to order a reading or report from StarryMart because you trust Dr Z and have decided that he's one of the best astrologers on the planet, then he still highly recommends that you select the default system of Koch.
  • However, if you've chosen to order a reading or report from StarryMart simply because it's cheap, then you may wish to consider pulling out that old chart or reading to determine which of several house systems they in fact used.

3. Finally, if you've had chart readings and/or reports done before (and you're quasi familiar with the subject of house systems and such), then you're probably already dead set on which house system you wish to use and it would be a waste of breath trying to convince you that you're better off using the Koch house system.

What's the REAL Bottom Line Here?
Dr Z has placed a prominent link to this House System Help page on each and every ordering page of StarryMart. He has done this because - while he truly wants you to be satisfied with the quality of your reading or report - he also doesn't have the time necessary to experiment with and switch your report and/or reading back and forth between the various different house systems simply because his Koch House System report and/or reading (might) place some of your planets in different houses than did a previous report from different astrologer.

FYI - If you're ordering a Horary Reading, then none of this applies to you... as Dr Z uses yet another house system for Horary Readings and, if you want a Horary Reading from Dr Z - you have no choice in the matter of house systems.
