You can play with these key words on your own, or with friends. Take a horoscope. Chose a placement. It can be a planet in a sign, a planet in a house, an aspect between two planets or a sign in a house.
Look at the lists of key words below and combine them to find interpretations.
NB: as in life, there will be positive and negative ways to combine energies.
If you need more explanations:
Each planet is associated with a sign and a house: you get the same key words, for instance for the Moon, the sign it rules which is Cancer, and the associated house which is the 4th.
Planets on principle represent the energy and are more likely to be expressed with verbs (for instance the Moon cares, nurtures, feels....) when the sign is a style or a mood and can be expressed with adjectives, adverbs or complements: In Cancer for instance, a planet does what it does with sensitivity, in a caring manner, following their intuition.....
The house represents an area of life, so the key words would rather relate to the question "where": the fourth house is where you belong which can be home, your family, your village, your country, your room, your personal space, your secret garden.
However, this is not a absolute rule and must be applied with great flexibility.
Just pick key words, combine them and see what comes up. For instance.... Mars in Cancer.... Active at home, aggressive in imagination, assertive with sensitivity......What else?
