The dilemma of house system use is part of the astrology study process. Many students usually follow the system used by their mentors, though greater research can be useful to really determine a choice of one’s own. Perhaps, the use of more than one house systems would be the most sensible approach as each House System highlights different things in the chart.
It is crucial to remember that ALL house systems have their valid references and logic. Astrology is a blend of Astronomy/Nature references with Symbolism references, so approaches vary. Some systems will refer more heavily on astronomical coordinates, while others will rely more heavily on the symbolism references.
