Stuck with my mums chart.. What house system to use?

So my mum just turned 50 and as I have started study astrology she asked me to interpreted her chart for her as a birthday present.. Problem is I am stuck and that's just when deciding what house system would work best..
So yes, I am new and this is the first time I take on to really do an interpretation for anyone proper.
The thing is that for my own chart, looking at equal, whole, placidus and koch. I can't really relate to any other one than the koch and the same when I look at many of my friends. This might seem weird as I am born in Sweden and this makes some of my houses huge and some tiny. Maybe it is just cuss I had my first readings in Koch or there is something really there...
When I looked at my mum's chart though I have mainly been looking at Placidus
and Koch to compare and I just can't make my mind up...
I thought maybe some outside insight might help...
So if anyone has some time over... Maybe you could have a look at this chart and tell me briefly how you would say the different house systems would work out in this person's life...?
I find it hard to decide as it is my mum so I know her well, at the same time as I don't know her at all.. Hard to have some distance...
Anything else you would like to comment on would be wicked cuss this is a hard one somehow...

House systems
Lots of people that come into Astrology get their free charts calculated at and the default ‘house system’ used is Placidus and think that’s just the norm and all that there is……..BUT that is just the tip of the iceberg. You can change the default on in Extended Chart selection to Equal house and a few more.

Throughout the forums but mainly in natal astrology there are two main branches Placidus (unequal size houses) v Equal House (whereby each house is same size) but lots more……. For more information on these go here.
For further research try here...

It's only with study and research will you be able to assess where your planets are deposited and in which houses... thus see which 'glove fits'

“Another of the three most popular house systems is Equal houses which is just what its name implies. All the houses have the same degree on each cusp, and there are no interceptions. Equal house systems are especially useful for people born in the northernmost and southernmost latitudes, and this system is the most popular one in use outside of the United States.”

Equal house system is the only system that is erected in the plane of the Earths orbit. The zodiac is erected in the plane of the Earths orbit around the Sun which comprises of a 360 degree circle that surrounds the Earth. The mid-heaven is often more, or less than ninety degrees (three signs) from the ascendant, therefore it is not often placed on the tenth house cusp, but marked where it appears in the mid-heaven according to the latitude and longitude of birth. The mid-heaven is taken as an important point; it is the point of self-mastery.

“The simplest approaches, the equal-house and whole-sign methods, merely require knowledge of the ascendant or ascending sign, and an equal division throughout the rest of the zodiac eliminates the need for any complicated calculations
Yet recent research into classical astrology has created a renewed interest in these simple techniques from a more scholarly perspective. The point of strength is that, regardless of the originating theory behind house division, in practice at least, classical astrologers tended to tie the houses to the signs, apparently concurring with Pelletier, who wrote in defence of the equal house method”

Re: Stuck with my mums chart.. What house system to use?

Ok thanks...
Yea should have had a look how to make a better post.. I will learn..
But thanks for the help...
Maybe it is cuss I can't relate to my own chart using whole or equal signs half as much as I do with Koch.. But then again maybe I will find it working better in the end with transits and so on.. Maybe I should try equal for my mums...
I will put the pictures up again anyway...
In case someone has something to say about the differences..
