A Main Principle of Reading Astrological Charts

The main principle is: should lords of houses with similar themes combine, that combination is significant. If the combination is blessed (nice house, nice dignity for the planets involved, nice aspects) the effect to the theme is positive, and visa versa.
The potency of the combination rests (a) on the potency of the planets forming it and (b) if it is “multiplied” by “recurring” when the ascendant is shifted to the moons location, and again to the sun’s location.
