Planets In Astrology

Puzzles gifted to us by the Universe, decoding your natal chart can be a life changing journey. We are handed codes to decipher and understand our perception of this lifetime from the moment we were brought here. But, what is the purpose?

The universe operates as a symphony of events, in constant motion and flow, with the potential to be changed at any time.  This is synchronicity and free-will, two very important concepts to understand before diving into your own chart.

Intuitively reading astrological symbolism has many layers to it and a great way to start is to dive into the ‘planetary bodies’. It is important to understand what characters the planets play in your chart before getting to know their distinct personalities,-which is the astrological sign they reside in.

These ‘planets’ (including the Sun, Moon, etc.) do not dictate our fate.  More so, they operate as a guide, where if you threw up your hands and decided to not play any role in your life, you will ride the chariot of what is written in the stars for you (that many philosophize at some point your soul chose). The purpose here is to use this information to your advantage by gaining awareness about your unique patterns and perhaps, innate gifts. When we set the intention to understand the facets of our own life, we receive energy and motivation to play a larger role in it.

If you are intuitive, you will get the most out of uncovering your natal chart yourself.

Sun- Vitality \ Masculine in energy

The Sun represents the frequency you are emitting to others. It is your life-force energy. This can be a smoky mirror, because we can’t see how others perceive what we are radiating from our own body of energy. Rightfully so, it can also be described as The ‘Ego’.

This is why looking at your Sun sign is only a very small part of the picture. The Sun, Ascendant (astrological first house), Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars are considered to be “personal planets” and give the most accurate astrological picture.

The Sun can be representative in your chart of a masculine figure in your life, or masculine qualities in general.  

Moon- The ‘Emotional body’ \ Feminine in energy

The Moon is your depth, instincts, patterns, and reactions. It is seen as the ‘Mother’ as in ‘nurture’, embodied, signifying how you receive nurturing and how you nurture others. This is truly your ‘love language’, even more-so than Venus.

It is also the place you go when you hide (not escape/that’s Neptune).

Mercury- The ‘Intellectual body’ \ higher thinking

Closest to our Sun is our mental mechanics, our intelligence. Mercury represents how we comprehend, communicate, and convey our thoughts into word.

We can even be burdened here by ancestral thought patterns that have been passed down. Innately being ‘scatter brained’ or hyper-critical can be from what Mercury is up to in your chart.

Earth- The Ascendant  \  lower thinking

The Ascendant in a Natal Chart is where your story in the sky begins. It is how you show up in your day to day life here on planet Earth. It is how you have been socialized and how you respond to the ‘world’ around you.

Venus- Senses / The Divine Feminine

The planet Venus represents the beauty and sensual side of life. It is love, passion, finances, and art. Here lies your emotional
