Body Palace

According to most of the Polaris astrology litterateurs, the Life palace is called "before heaven" it represents a person's innate abilities or personalities that he or she is born with. The Body palace is called "after heaven". It represents the abilities a person could acquire or achieve, if he or she worked hard enough. According to some astrologers, the importance of the Body palace is no less then the Life palace and the pleasure palace.

In addition, some astrologers believe that because the life palace is before heaven and the Body palace is after heaven, the Life palace represents the earlier part of a person's life which is before the age of forty. The Body Palace represents the later part of a person's life, after the age of forty. Therefore, when analyzing the earlier part of a person's life, The life palace should receive more focus then the Body palace. Vice versa for analyzing the later part of a person's life. This concept is only supported by a small group of astrologers, and I currently do not have enough statistic to confirm it.

Due to the rules on determining the Life palace and the body palace, the Body palace can only share its location with one of the following six palaces:
