Karen Hamaker-Zondag, one of the most insightful astrologers I've read, addresses this problem by using a different (I believe older) technique. She looks not at planets in houses, but to the planet that rules each house. (This is the planet associated with the sign at the beginning of each house--if your 3rd House starts in Pisces, then Neptune, which rules Pisces, is your 3rd House ruler.)
Since every house has a ruler, there's something to be said about every house. Mostly Hamaker-Zondag interprets the house ruler in terms of the house that it's in--so if the ruler of your 10th House is in your 5th House, your 10th House activities will be motivated by 5th House matters--you might want to advance in your career in order to express yourself.
While I think this is an interesting technique, I wish there was more about house rulers in this book. It doesn't really talk much about the particular planet that rules a house--what does it mean to have Uranus ruling your 7th House, as opposed to say Saturn?--or what sign the house ruler is in. It does cover a lot of ground that isn't found elsewhere, but as a subhead, "How to Read the Houses in an Astrological Chart" somewhat oversells this book.
Still, I'm very glad that I purchased this. Zondag has some interesting techniques for chart interpretation that I haven't seen elsewhere. I will definitely grow in a few areas as an astrologer because of this book.
