The Planets and the Zodiac

A planet rules at least one sign of the Zodiac. The planets tie to aspects of our personalities and lives. In this article, we want to uncover the planet’s rulership and meaning. In ancient times, humanity looked up to the stars and noticed that there were patterns that repeated themselves. They studied them and realized that specific movements of the planets created effects on Earth. Yet they also realized that these different planets and luminaries were connected to aspects of one’s personality. Astrology studies those movements and their impact on our personal lives. Over centuries this ancient knowledge has been fine-tuned, and new observations have been made.

Aspects in astrology

-When casting an astrological chart, we assume the earth as the center and the other planets moving around it. The chart contains a circle and represents 360 degrees. It is then divided into 12 parts, and each of those parts represents an area of your life, as it is shown in the housing system. There are 12 Zodiac signs which are divided into 30-degree segments. Each piece also has an original zodiac sign, which is ruled by one of the nine planets.

When casting a birth chart, each of the nine planets can be located in any of the 12 segments and make its presence felt. Some locations are better and strengthening, while others could be disruptive or challenging. To understand your personality and path in life, we should first look at each planet and its astrological meaning.
