The influence of borderline-planets on the birth chart

I try to interpret my own birth chart.

The planet-house placement is important for the interpretation.
In my birth chart, it’s not always easy to say which planet effects which house. For example, the sun is located in the second house but the distance to the border of the third house is quite low, so an astrologer might say that it unleashes its influence in the third house.

On a website, i read that planets which are close to the border of the house, which is next higher than the current house, have a strong effect on the next house and don’t effect the house in which they are located.
For more information, see:…
However, in astrological books, i couldn’t find any relevant information about it.

I would like to know if this is true and where to find more information about it. Are you familiar with this concept?

What you refer to is to the concept called, "Planets on a Cusp". A "cusp" the beginning and end "border" of a house.

The way you "interpret" this is by assigning such planets the "energies" of both houses simultaneously.…

Looking at the north side of your chart I quickly see :154: at the equal-house third-house cusp.
Since the signs are more powerful than the houses, having a planet at a house cusp is a softer phenomena than at a sign cusp!
:154: & :155: in rulerships makes the signs and houses related to them more powerful.
:160: is five minutes of arc into being two-signed; it is bolstering both :155: & :154:.

look at it by sign not house, use placidus for that....having planets on 0 or 1 or 2 degree just means that that planet is not developed yet... sun on 1 degree gem is way different than sun 29.50`Taurus in that sense Cusp is non existing...
