How The Planets Affect Astrology

Planets Astrology Pluto Neptune Uranus

The planets all revolve around the Sun in a precise pattern. Because of this, we know when to go to bed and when to get up. The patterns help us determine our days, years, and seasons. We know exactly where to find any planet at any given time based on the planet patterns.

We can chart the movement of the planets, but still, the different combinations that can be made of the planets placements are almost infinite. On the very day you were born, the planets were in a certain alignment. However, the heavens may not see that alignment again for a number of years. It is the specific alignment of the planets that astrologers use to give each individual a unique birth chart. It is even possible for twins to have different birth charts, as the Ascendant changes every four minutes.

But, there are, of course, cases where two individuals are born at the same exact moment. These individuals are referred to as astral twins or time twins. Astrologers having done research on such individuals have found that their lives often take very similar paths.

Each planet governs a certain part of your personality. How much of the planet's characteristics you have depends on the position of the planets in the zodiac signs during your birth.

Mercury

Mercury is the planet of intelligence. If Mercury is prominent in your chart, then you are likely to be a very lively, entertaining speaker with a good memory. Debating comes easy to you and you are quite shrewd. However, each sign has negative aspects. The negative aspects of Mercury are the possibility of lying, deceit, and sarcasm. Because Mercury is so close to the Sun, it is either your Sun sign or immediately preceding or following your Sun sign.

Venus

Venus is the planet of love and pleasure. This planet will represent how you relate to the opposite sex. If prominent, you will probably be a delightful partner to have who is very easy with which to get along. Negative aspects of Venus are narcissism and a lack of self-discipline. Venus is always your Sun sign or one of the two signs immediately preceding or following your Sun sign.

Mars

Mare is the plant of physical energy. If prominent in your chart, you are a real go-getter. You are very active and like to take charge. However, negative aspects include overly aggressive behavior and a quick temper.

Jupiter

Jupiter is the planet of joys, including optimism, luck, and generosity. If prominent in your chart, you will be outgoing and lucky at whatever career you choose. Negative aspects includes being extravagant and lazy.

Saturn

Saturn signifies hard work and responsibility. The position Saturn is in on your chart will show how well you can handle responsibility. If prominent, you will be seen as dependable and trustworthy. The negative aspects are being selfish, overly ambitious, and inflexible.

Uranus

Uranus is the planet of change and brings about sudden events in your life. You are independent and like the unusual. People who have a prominence of Uranus are also often psychic. Negative aspects are restlessness, recklessness, and sudden mood changes.

Like Neptune and Pluto, Uranus has a generational influence because these planets are so far away and travel very slowly through the zodiac. So, in addition to influencing an individual, these planets are also thought to influence an entire generation.

Neptune

Neptune is the planet of mystery and bewitchment. It can also indicate if you are psychic and how much ESP ability you may have. Neptune often represents a higher plane of consciousness and a renewed interest in spirituality.

Pluto

Pluto is a planet of unbelievably mysterious power. It rules the beginning and ending of phases - like two sides of a coin. Its power is turbulent - perhaps letting you work hard for something, only to see it destroyed. People under Pluto's influence often make great politicians, doctors, and researchers.

As with all personality traits, you will need to learn to appreciate any good aspects a planet adds to your personality while trying to control any negative aspects with which you may have to deal. While the planets have a strong influence on your, ultimately what you do is up to you.
