What do the planets mean in astrology?

In Western (or Tropical) Astrology, we consider the 11 celestial bodies found in the solar system to be planets – this includes the Moon, Pluto, and Chiron. This comes from ancient times: the ancient Greek astronomers, when observing the sky, realized that certain celestial objects did not remain fixed like others. They called these objects asteres planetai (wandering stars).

In astrology, the planets correspond to different aspects of the Self in the same way as the head, the torso, the hands, etc., correspond to different parts of the physical body. The way the planets are expressed depends on their sign. The area of life where they are activated depends on the astrological house where we find them.

The planets correspond to different aspects of the Self.

In the birth chart we can see how the planets (or aspects of the Self) are related to each other. Some do it harmoniously while others may be in conflict. We see this through the aspects (or angles) that the planets form with each other.

Personal Planets

Personal planets are those that are closest to the Sun. Being fast in their elliptic, they change their zodiacal quickly. As a result, they create diversity. For this reason, within the same generational wave they represent personal characteristics on individuals.
