The SUN and MOON are the 2 most important parts of your ASTROLOGICAL self. The Sun rules your INNER self, your EGO, who you are to those who know you BEST. The Moon rules your EMOTIONS, how you emotionally REACT and what you need to feel emotionally SECURE. The Sun is VITALITY, SHINING a LIGHT wherever it is; the Moon is SENSITIVE, bringing out the FEELINGS of a situation. The Sun rules LEO; the Moon rules CANCER.
VENUS is WOMEN and LOVE, MARS is MEN and SEX, right? Well, not exactly! Venus is your FEMININE side, and Mars is your MASCULINE side. Venus rules what you’d like in love relationships and in a PARTNER. Mars doesn’t exactly rule sex, but rather what DRIVES you in life. Mars is ENERGY and FOCUS, while Venus is more at EASE. Mars rules ARIES; Venus rules TAURUS and LIBRA.
JUPITER and SATURN are 2 sides of the same coin; Jupiter EXPANDS, Saturn CONTRACTS, Jupiter’s OPTIMISM, Saturn’s PESSIMISM, Jupiter’s LIGHTER, Saturn’s DARKER. Jupiter can be bad if it INDULGES too much or is LAZY; Saturn can be bad with all WORK and no PLAY. Jupiter is meant to be CAREFREE, while Saturn is meant to TEACH lessons. Jupiter rules SAGITTARIUS; Saturn rules CAPRICORN.
URANUS is the higher octave of MERCURY. Mercury rules COMMUNICATIONS; Uranus rules TECHNOLOGY. Mercury is MENTAL, ruling your COMMUNICATING style and how you LEARN, while Uranus rules the ERRATIC, UNPREDICATBLE, DIFFERENT, and NEW. They can both bring things on SUDDENLY, and their energies are CONTINUOUS. Uranus rules AQUARIUS; Mercury rules GEMINI and VIRGO.
NEPTUNE and PLUTO are the slowest-moving planets, and have a big effect on us. Neptune DISSOLVES, Pluto TRANSFORMS. Neptune rules ILLUSIONS, DECEPTION, DREAMS, and IMAGINATION. Pluto rules POWER, CONTROL, and DEPTH. They can each bring DIFFICULTIES, with Pluto especially having a reputation as a DESTROYER, but both just want PROFOUND change. Neptune rules PISCES; Pluto rules SCORPIO.
