The Planets in Astrology and Their Meanings








The location and movements of the Sun, Moon and planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) have great significance in astrology, as they play an influencing role in the basic personality traits associated with the twelve zodiac signs.



Each planetary body rules a specific sign, and depending on which house it is sitting, it will bring to that particular house the specific energy it represents.



what planets rule what astrological signs








The planets are classified into three groups – personal, social and transpersonal – according to the time they take to travel the zodiacal circle.


The fast-moving personal planets, which are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars, take a short time to make a full circle and affect your personal characteristics, immediate relationships as well as day-to-day events/changes in your life.


The social planets, Jupiter and Saturn, are about how you relate to society, how it encourages and inspires you, and how it restricts you.


The distant interpersonal planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, affect you on a more generational level.
