The Planets

Each planet rules over some general life area through an inherent system of interests, abilities & natural talents. Some of these broad categories are quite complex & diverse. And there are areas where one planet's territory supports, echoes & overlaps that of another. This is especially true when dealing with the feminine planets -- the Moon, Venus & Neptune.

This seems related to their feminine focus with its connections to the world of feelings, emotions, instincts & intuition -- all elements of life associated with right-brain function. But these planet "territories" as I describe them give an Astrologer considerable insight into how you're built, how you're designed to function, the contributions you can make to Life & how you're meant to interact with others.

Understanding each planet & how it operates in its domain -- & how you & all your Inner Selves react with it, is a huge step toward understanding yourself. It's literally the process of getting to know another person who is really part of you. You'll likely get along better with yourself. You'll feel more at peace. Things will make sense. You'll understand what's happening. You will relate better to your Inner Family.

That Inner Family is the constellation of Inner Selves the various planets represent. Sometimes they get along well -- or at least tolerate one another. Other times they don't. (Just like a real family.) There are pairs or groups who work together & others who can barely stand to speak.

Arranging some kind of insight & compromise is your job as the one in charge of your life. That's where the wisdom of Astrology & understanding how the planets work gives you a spectacular advantage over people who've never heard of this, still flailing around in the dark. Worth its weight in diamonds.

The Planets

Astrology speaks a language of symbols. In Astrology the planets mean something. The signs mean something. The houses & various aspects between the planets mean something, & the ability to break the code & speak the language happens when you become an Astrologer ... when you study enough, memorize & observe enough to understand what it means & how it all fits together.

The symbolism is complex. For example, the planets stand for quite a bit -- everything from Inner Selves to body parts, life phases, attitudes, interests, overarching archetypes & concepts. A comprehensive list for any one of these would be detailed, diverse & long. And as they travel through the sky, through the 12 signs of the Zodiac, their personalities change in ways that make one incarnation not at all like another.

Then there's retrograde phases & aspects, each using, focusing & shaping the energy it represents. It's a fascinating process. To comprehend this is to understand why life itself is so complicated. There are 8 planets (so far) & two luminaries. Those are the Sun & the Moon. In Astrology they generally are considered (& behave like) planets.

It's important to understand what each one stands for & how they interact with one another. It gives you a better appreciation for dynamics we all grew up in & live with every day. Each planet alone is interesting, but it's also just a curiosity. Their interactions with each other is where they come to life.

And their position in your Natal Chart -- your horoscope -- each in his own distinct sign tells an Astrologer how you view the world, your habits & character traits, your strengths & weaknesses. So much we have to, again, rely on symbolism. It's all there, but it's a lot to take in.

and Elsewhere

General Astrology -- From the Blogs, Ezines & Elsewhere -- Selection 1 ---> General Astrology Topics Entries from Everyday Astrology Selection 1 ---> When any planet in our horoscope crosses from Pisces over the threshold of 0° Aries, it starts a completely new segment on its eternal journey around Creation's Spiral. We all do. Each trip through the Zodiac is a complete segment of learning, kind of like "graduating" from second grade to third grade where the personal planets are concerned -- the Sun, the Moon, Mercury & Venus.

* They Call It Entertainment -- Astrology Wrapped in Weasel-words, -- Disclaimers, and Excuses ---> People think they know what Astrology is ---> Astrology. It's perhaps the most popular of the occult sciences, having at least a toehold in almost everybody's consciousness -- a reputation gained usually through the daily horoscope whose idiocy continues to find a home on drugstore news-stands and in newspapers everywhere.

General Astrology -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology February 16, 2021 General Astrology ---> When you first decide to "get into astrology" -- & maybe really study it, right off the bat, naturally, you have questions. What does the Sun in your horoscope mean? What does it tell you? What good is it? How do you work with it? How do you use its information to understand yourself? Ok ... let's talk about this.
