Significator

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

In general, every planet is a significator (one who signifies) of the matters associated with the house in which it is located, or with the house it rules. Mars, for example, is a significator of marriage and partnerships if it is located in the seventh house (the house of marriage and partnerships), or if Aries, the sign Mars rules, is on the cusp (at the beginning) of the seventh house. This term is infrequently used outside horary astrology.
