When an aspiring astrologer (or a very interested fan) begins to delineate (read) maps of the starry sky, he discovers that some parts are very easy to understand and others harder. This is probably a truthful statement on almost any topic you can choose from. However, there are so many sections in astrology that you can read in different ways, so it’s always helpful to get helpful tips on how to simplify some of them. In this article, I’ll try to make it easier to read ten planets with a classification system called hierarchy. Let’s start with what is a planet and which bodies will be included in this article?
Astrologers for convenience refer to ten planets on the map of the starry sky, although astrologers are fully aware that the two bodies included in the census are not actually planets, and the rating of one was recently downgraded by the astronomical community. The sun (which is one of ten) is a star, not a planet. The moon (also considered ten) is a satellite of the Earth, not a planet. The Earth, which is a planet, is not taken into account because it represents the common point at which we stand. A map of the starry sky is built with the ground in the center of the cosmic pattern. (This is called a “geocentric” approach).) What for? That’s because we’re interested in what’s going on here and nowhere else in the solar system in relation to this single map.
Pluto was recently demoted to a dwarf planet, but remains in my account. What for? In 36 years as an astrologer, my experience shows that Pluto behaves like a planet regardless of its classification, so I decided to leave it in this category. Other astrologers and astronomers may disagree with me, and I have no problem with that. Feel free to read and their opinion. Different opinions teach you and make the process fair. The ten bodies (planets) we will talk about before the end of this article are the Sun (star), moon (satellite), Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and (dwarf planet) Pluto.
Each of the ten planets is a large physical object in our solar system. All nine planets from my original school lessons, including Earth, revolve around our Sun (star). The moon is the moon of the Earth, but the closest celestial body to us. It is about a quarter the size of the Earth and has a huge and measurable effect on our land and water tides. Each individual object has mass, location, movement, speed, direction and influence on the surrounding space. Each of them has an impact on the system, and it is a well-known scientific fact that planets have a direct influence on the Sun, especially on the largest, Jupiter. (Find solar flares and their causes online). Bodies have energy and influence and show energy and influence. Astrologically it is quite easy to see their influence on each other regardless of distance. Here’s an analogy that can help you understand how it affects people.
I was married once, and my husband and I had four children. He has influenced all of us, and we have all influenced him individually, both individually and individually. All were influenced by each other both in the family and in the family. We don’t have to be in the same room. Marriage and family existed, and the influence of the family existed regardless of physical proximity. When we were together in pairs or groups, we were influenced by the physical and psychological energy available. After our separation, this influence persisted, but at that moment it was physically impossible to detect it. Evidence of the effect exists more in the psychological arena. The lack of physical contact did not negate the effect.
The distances in our solar system are enormous. The solar system is a family of objects that affect and interact with each other despite long distances. It is easy to see the analogy and logic inherent in this example, despite the scale. While the great Jupiter can physically affect the much larger and powerful Sun at a distance of about 484 million kilometers, the celestial distances can be huge compared to the human family. The principle remains the same.
The human analogy: the sun is the heart and core of man, the centralizing factor, the place of identity and individuality, the guiding factor, the ego, self-identification, individualization of one person over another, or the absence of these factors. (Not everyone understands all these words well), it is a principle of life that represents the energy, health and constitution inherent in man. This should be enough to illustrate the use of solar energy by humans. Each planet describes an individual function within humans, and for each planet there are literally hundreds of information books. The planets represent the ten main drivers of personality and collectively describe personality. Each reader presents a wide range of topics.
Ten energies exist in a person, but all ten energies do not function optimally or do not work every minute of the day. I often use the analogy with the fact that we all live in a very large school building (on land) and we are all in the process of working. It would be pointless to go to school if you already knew how to function properly, right? Each planet is individual and must be carefully studied to understand its impact, influence and purpose on humans. Each planet is connected, and its impact on the whole must also be taken into account. It takes time and some skills to develop.
Some planets are quite personal and are called “inner planets.” The farther they are from the Sun, the less personal and more cultural the planets become. We can even go beyond that level. The energies of certain planets move in the evolution and development of mankind, and affect the human being. My way of explaining these differences is to divide the planets into three logical stages of human application: personal, cultural and generational. All ten belong to the person studied, but the three external bodies tend to develop within the generation in which we were born.
Start with the sun in the center of this person/system and move to the edge of the system. Dynamic sun is the heart and the core, the personality. Next up is Mercury, our communication energy. Next up is Venus, our valuable energy of relationships.
