Planets in same sign; different houses?



  • Hi all,

    I have my moon in Leo (3 degrees) as well as Pluto in Leo (25 degrees)...Leo is my 12th house, but my moon is in house 11. I've dabbled in astrology for years, but I don't do the math; I always thought each house was "governed" by one of the 12 signs (sorry if wording is ackward)! Can anyone explain, briefly, why a planet can be in a sign, but not that sign's house?

    Many thanks!
