The House stands for your roots, where you come from, both literally (your hometown, your childhood street, your first school or alma mater) and figuratively (your spiritual and professional background, your emotional baggage, what you identify yourself as). It is the symbol of your neighbourhood and your immediate environment. In readings related to health, it can represent your physical body.
House is the card you are likely to turn to when inquiring about real estate dealings, moving up the property ladder (especially if it stands coupled with Change), work around the house, construction, remodeling, redecorating and architecture in general. When used to describe a person, the temperament the card denotes tends to be family-oriented, reliable, safety-conscious, perhaps somewhat inflexible and with a general dislike of surprises. A stable, well-grounded square-shaped physique is also a possibility. Timing-wise, the House deals with middle-term and long term matters but also a period of two to six months.
