House Systems - Natal And Relocated Charts

I've just read a very interesting article on "Charts in the North Temperate Zone" by Gary Noel which was published in "Today's Astrologer", Volume 68 Number 3.

Most astrologers know that house systems like Placidus and Koch break down when a chart is calculated for a location near or above the Arctic Circle. In his article Gary Noel wrote that he prefers the Alcabitius house system because it doesn't exclude anybody. This house system works for any place on the globe, including anywhere above the Arctic and below the Antarctic Circles.

Although I've always used Placidus houses I was somewhat concerned that they sometimes fall apart when calculated for locations with a high latitude. I will now take a closer look at the Alcabitius house system and see how it works out.
