The First House shows your outward character traits. Any planet in the first house will give you the traits of the sign that this planet rules.

Sun in the First House: gives you the traits of Leo, wanting attention and to be in the center of things at all times.

Moon in the First House: gives you the traits of the sign of Cancer, moody, sensitive, and with an "instinctive" approach to everything.

Mercury in the First House: usually gives you the traits of the sign of Gemini and, to a lesser extent, Virgo. There will tend to be a constant need to communicate and move around. This one always seems to be talking, writing, and running all over the place.

Venus in the First House: usually gives you the traits of the sign of Libra, and to a lesser extent, Taurus. The Libra side is artistic and charming but this position makes it more difficult to take action alone. The Taurus side is more self indulgent. On the negative side, there is a tendency to be lazy and a pleasure addict.

Mars in the First House: gives you the traits of the sign of Aries. Grass doesn’t grow under your feet with this one. In fact, it may burn! Action is your middle name. There always has to be some goal to ATTACK. This placement wants to give the orders. Watch out for arguments and impulsiveness (more noticeable in one’s younger years).

Jupiter in the First House: gives you the traits of the sign of Sagittarius, optimistic, lucky, and with a tendency to say the first thing that pops into your mind. That is why Sagittarius HAS to be the sign of good luck. If it weren’t, everyone with a Sagittarius Sun-sign, or rising sign, or Jupiter in the first house would be murdered before the age of ten for saying outrageous things. If you have this placement, don’t get into the habit of relying too much on your "luck" because every now and then, it shuts off, and THEN you will be in real trouble. The other drawbacks of this position are a tendency to gain weight and no desire whatever to listen to any one else.

Saturn in the First House: gives you the traits of the sign of Capricorn, ambitious and well organized, yet fearful and cautious. The best way to deal with that tendency to look on the dark side is to keep busy working for a goal.

Uranus in the First House: gives you the traits of the sign of Aquarius. At the very least, this makes you independent and gives you an attraction to weird and unusual things (like astrology!). There may be a tendency to shock people.

Neptune in the First House: gives you the traits of the sign of Pisces. You are always starting off in one direction and winding up in another, thinking "How did I get here?". I have a Capricorn friend with this one. Neptune sits right at the beginning of her first house. Yes, she is generally practical and efficient, but she has that spicy, far-away look of a Pisces and is far too trusting. This position can give a great imagination though. Just make sure that every now and then you stop looking at those pretty dreams and spend a little time with mundane reality.

Pluto in the First House: gives you the traits of the sign of Scorpio, intense and secretive. You can give orders to a stranger and they will frequently do as you say. Your intuition about the people you meet for the first time is uncanny. Be careful about what you want because you will get it, for better or worse. If you are ever injured, this gives the ability to make an amazing recovery, back from the dead, so to speak.
