Houses: the "Cities of the World" as Areas of Life Experience

Antero Alli, a fantastic author on astrology, wrote this book.  Within it, he had the idea of the chart houses (those "wedges," as I call 'em) as "states" of existence, much as I've outlined in a prior post.
But what I found helpful was to turn the idea of houses into "cities" around the world.  To me, the chart IS a "world view" of our lives on an individual level.  Here are my ideas for the 12 "city-states" of the world of our lives, along with dynamics of each.
