Planet – Role & Importance Of Planets In Astrology
From the past few years from today, I used to check my Moon sign horoscope to know about each day. I used to check my ascendant horoscope to know about the year ahead. However, with time, I have learned that in astrology, there’s so much to learn.
I decided to dive deep into the astrology section and figured out that there are literally lots of things which affects our everyday life. Reading about the zodiac and moon sign horoscope only tells you the basics.
If you want to explore different parts of your life, you need to learn a few astrology rules. So, if you have just read your sun sign or moon sign horoscope and started to feel skeptical about Astrology, then, believe me, you have a whole lot of things to learn.
For an Astrologer to predict your lifestyle and upcoming future, a whole chart is considered with a bunch of complicated things that most of us weren’t even aware of. For example, me and my friend both are Sagittarius but believe me, we are almost opposite.
Have you ever wondered why? It’s because we have a completely different chart, and the only thing common between us is the Moon sign. So, with both of us having the same moon sign, we feel similar, but the way of acting towards any particular action or emotion is entirely different.
Role Of Planets In Astrology
When Astrologers look at any natal chart, they are looking at the movements of the planet during the birth time. In simple words, analyzing a natal chart is all about getting to the larger story, which is hidden behind the events in our universe.
So, the prediction and natal chart calculation depend mainly upon the role of planets in astrology. You might feel weird, but Sun and Moon were also considered as ‘Planets’ in Astrology. The reason behind this is simple. The astrology works from the perspective of us here on earth, and the Sun and Moon were considered as luminary bodies, thus astrologers take them as ‘Planets’ for hassle-free calculation.
Planets In Astrology
In Vedic Astrology, there are nine planets – Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Rahu, Ketu. Some astrologers also take Uranus, Pluto, and Neptune in the account. Each of the planets in Vedic Astrology has its effects in the natal chart and represents a specific form of energy.
Each of the planets in Astrology symbolizes something in all our lives. The functionality of the planets alters depending upon the house they are sitting in. So, the combination of the zodiac sign, planet locations/position, and the houses end up displaying a portrait of you.
So, planets have a different influence on a natal chart depending upon the house and the sign they were placed in. We will be discussing the roles of the planet and their meaning in a new section – Planets In Astrology.
