Choose a House System

The default house system used by ZodiacPress is Placidus. This page shows how you can change the house system to you desired system.

You will set your desired house system directly in the shortcode for the birth report.

When you set the house system directly in the shortcode, it will override the default house system.

You set your house system by adding the house_system option to the shortcode.

For example, this sets the house system to Whole Sign houses:

[birthreport house_system="W"]

The letter W represents Whole Sign Houses.

You can change the W to the letter code for your desired house system.

House System Letter Codes (CASE SENSITIVE):

B = Alcabitius
C = Campanus
E = Equal / Asc
K = Koch
X = Meridian houses / axial rotation system
M = Morinus
P = Placidus
O = Porphyry
R = Regiomontanus
T = Topocentric / Polich/Page
V = Vehlow
W = Whole Sign

Alternate Way To Set a House System

If you don’t want to manually add the house_system option to the shortcode, there is another way. You can use the ZP House Systems extension to set a default house system to use for all reports. This extension lets you replace Placidus Houses with your own default. Then, you wouldn’t have to add the house_system option directly into the shortcode.
