The Succedent Houses of the Horoscope are the second category or classification of Houses in the chart.

The Angular Houses are the Ascendant or ASC (1st), Descendant or DC (7th), Midheaven or MC (10th), and the Nadir or IC (4th). These are considered the most potent areas of a chart, and planets placed within any of these Houses are infused with energy and represent significant influence in the chart, and thus the life of the individual.
