In traditional and modern astrology, the planets play a pivotal role in shaping a person's sense of self and their interaction with the world. The sun sign, corresponding to the position of the Sun in our solar system at a person's birth, is the most well-known aspect of astrology. However, the 'other planets' also have a significant role in the natal chart, providing more insight into a person's individuality.
The 'personal planets' - the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars - are often referred to as the 'classical planets.' They are associated with a person’s core self, emotions, communication, love and physical energy, respectively. For instance, the Moon, Roman god of the night sky, represents our emotions and subconscious desires.
The 'outer planets' - Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto - reflect slower, societal-level changes. Each planet remains in the same zodiac sign for about seven years, thus it influences a generation rather than individuals.
Interactions between two planets, known as 'aspects,' also significantly influence a person's natal chart. For example,An error occurred during generation. Please try again or contact support if it continues.
Astrology, a fascinating cosmic science, offers profound insights about individuals and generations through the thoughtful study of the planets and their aspects.
