The Complete Astrology Guide on Planets

What are the Astrological Planet’s and what do they mean?

In astrology, the term “planet” does not always refer to the actual planets in our solar system. This term often encompasses the Sun and Moon as well, in addition to asteroids and other bodies in the sky. In this article we will talk about how these factors guide your sign in Astrology based on your planets.

You can think of an astrological planet as being any physical body that is found on your chart.

You will also see the Sun and Moon referred to as “luminaries” or “lights” instead of planets. Other aspects of the chart that you won’t necessarily see referred to as planets include the asteroids, the nodes, and the angles. 

Regardless of which planet you are talking about, the signs are always going to be the same twelve: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

Every planet appears to move along the same path through our sky, making a journey through all the signs of the zodiac.

One interesting thing about the planets (including the luminaries) is that they have zodiac signs over which they “rule”. You can think of these planets as having unique influences on the signs.

Sometimes traits associated with that planet will also be ones found in the sign. These planets often feel “at home” in the signs they rule and these are considered to be harmonious placements for the planets. 

People may even derive strength from the planet that rules their Sun sign or the dominant sign in their chart.

If Mars is in a “favorable” area of the sky, for example, Aries and Scorpio may feel the benefits of that, even if Mars is not in their sign.

The planets (that is to say, the actual planets of our solar system) are divided up into personal planets, interpersonal planets, and transpersonal planets.

How they are divided up is determined by the actual distance of each planet from the earth and, therefore, from you as a person.

More about these Planets

Personal Planets: The personal planets are Mercury, Venus, and Mars. You will also see the two luminaries, the Sun and Moon, referred to as personal planets.

They are considered to be closest to our physical and emotional selves. These planets also revolve more quickly around the Sun, meaning that people who are the same age, even people born on the same day, are going to have these planets in a wide variety of signs and combinations. 

These planets say a lot about your personality. Who you are as a person, your self-identity, self-worth, and self-esteem are all governed by these planets.

How you feel and express emotions, as well as your values, what you find aesthetically pleasing, and even your feelings about sex are also things the personal planets deal with. 

Interpersonal Planets: The interpersonal or social planets are Jupiter and Saturn. They are considered outer planets, due to their slower orbits, but they are not as “mysterious” as the transpersonal planets since we can see them with the naked eye.

These deal with how we relate to other people and how we are out in the world. For example, Jupiter has a lot to do with philosophy, our luck in the world, and social expression.

Saturn deals with our responsibilities and can relate to our careers and the work we do.

Transpersonal Planets: The transpersonal or generational planets are Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

People who are all around the same age will share the same sign, meaning that they have less of a tie to who we are as individual people and more of a tie to the traits of those cohorts or generations.

You will often see astrologers talk about the Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto “Generations”. They often look at these groups as a whole, as well as the time periods they were born in, in order to see what sorts of social themes pop up.

Outside of the planets in our solar system, astrologers also use other bodies and points in space in astrological chart readings. 

Asteroids: One thing astrologers use is asteroids. There are thousands and thousands of asteroids in our solar system and it would be impractical to look at every single one of these on a chart. 

However, there are common ones that astrologers often use. These are often the largest asteroids. Examples of these would be Ceres, Pallas Athena, Vesta, and Juno.

These particular asteroids are known as the “goddess asteroids”, as they are all named for Roman goddesses.

Centaurs: Similar to asteroids, another type of planetary body astrologers look at is something known as a “centaur”. This is like a hybrid between a comet and an asteroid. The most popular one is Chiron.

Mathematical Points: Mathematical points in space are another aspect astrologers look at. These are, obviously, not actually physical bodies like planets and asteroids. 

These mathematical points can be difficult for astrologers and non-astrologers alike to understand. They are not actual planets or stars that we can see in the sky.

Most people do not even know how to calculate these points themselves. Instead, they rely on online chart creators to tell them what sign the points are in at any given time. 

If you are finding it hard to wrap your head around the idea of these points, don’t worry! Even experienced astrologers don’t always understand them either.

Nodes are one example of these points. These are points where the paths of the Moon and planets cross over the path the Sun takes through our sky.

The sign the two points intersect is what sign the node is “in”. The most commonly looked at nodes are lunar nodes.

Angles: The angles are another example of intangible points used in astrology. These have to do with where the Sun is in the sky at given times. The Ascendant (AC) is where the Sun rises.

The Midheaven or Medium Coeli (MC) is where the Sun is at midday. The Descendant (DC) is sunset. The Imum Coeli (IC) is where the Sun is at midnight. 

As you can see, there are a lot of different things you’ll find in your chart! If it seems overwhelming, don’t worry.

Here is a look at the meaning behind some of the planets you’ll find in your astrological chart.

Sun

Keywords associated with the Sun are:

  • Light
  • Health
  • Ego
  • Self-identity
  • Will and willpower
  • Father/father-figure
  • Confidence

Anyone who knows anything about astrology most likely knows their Sun sign. This is the sign people mean when they say they “are” a Gemini, Taurus, Capricorn, etc.

Sun signs are the ones used in horoscopes found in pop culture magazines, newspapers, and websites.

The Sun sign is the most popular for a reason. Your Sun sign is your “ego”. Just like the Sun is the center of our solar system, your Sun sign is at the core of who you are as a person. 

The Sun spends about one month in each sign, taking a year to go through the entire zodiac. This year-long period does not line up with our solar year.

It begins on March 21st when Aries begins and ends on March 20th of the following year when Pisces ends. 

The Sun gives life to our entire solar system. Going along with this, your Sun sign is your life energy. It is your self. Your base personality is going to be that of your Sun sign.

The traits of your Sun sign are going to stay with you throughout life. In times of joy and sorrow, you are going to embody these traits one way or another.

This is not just how people view you or who you try to project yourself as. This is who you are. At the end of the day, this is your truest self.

You can also say that your Sun sign is your identity. This is probably why so many people say they simply “are” their Sun sign! The Sun takes up most of our solar system.

It is a huge part of who you are as a person, even if it is not the entirety of who you are. 

How you recharge can also be found with the Sun. You can also use your Sun sign to figure out the areas you feel most powerful in.

Taurus may recharge and feel on top of the world out in nature, while Leo thrives in being in the spotlight. 

The Sun can also be our creativity and individuality. What sparks us in life and gets us going can be found in our Sun sign. The Sun is not the only aspect in charge of this, of course.

However, it does say a lot about our own particular “spark”. Where Venus might tell us what we find beautiful and Mars might tell us about our passions, the Sun is going to show us how we express those things.

Traditionally, the Sun is also related to the father or father-figure in a person’s life. The Sun is also said to embody “masculine” energy.

Not all astrologers use this aspect of the Sun but it is interesting to think about it! 

Having many planets close to the Sun can often allow people to better express their inner selves (depending on the planets). People with Mercury in the same sign as the Sun will have no trouble talking about themselves.

People with Venus close to the Sun have strong ties between their core personality, their values, and their aesthetic. On the other hand, people with Saturn close to the Sun may feel this energy “constricts” who they are.

The Sun is the traditional ruler of Leo. The colors associated with the Sun are gold and yellow.

Moon

Keywords associated with the Moon are:

  • Emotion
  • Instinct
  • Reflection
  • Intuition
  • The past
  • Nourishment
  • Nurturing

If the Sun is your ego, the Moon is your heart. The Moon is in charge of your emotional self, who you are underneath. Depending on your Moon sign, this can be the parts of you that people don’t see or the parts that people see all too often.

The moon takes a month to go through each sign of the zodiac, staying in each sign for only 2-3 days.

It can even change signs during the day, making people born only hours apart have totally different Moon signs.

The Moon also shows what makes you feel secure in life. It may be where you take refuge when emotions are running high and you need to calm down. 

Your Sun sign is often influenced by your Moon sign. A watery Moon sign can tone down a fiery Sun sign.

Having the same sign or even signs of the same element as your Sun and Moon sign amplifies those traits. Water Sun and Moon are more emotional. Fire Sun and Moon are more heated.

Earth Sun and Moon are extremely grounded. Air Sun and Moon are off in the clouds.

To understand how exactly the Moon affects us, take a look at how it works in each sign.

Moon in Zodiacs

Moon in Aries: People with this placement are passionate for sure. This can mean they are excited or it can mean they are aggressive. Their emotions run high and can be explosive.

They often need a physical or creative outlet for their emotions.

Moon in Taurus: This person craves stability in order to feel emotionally secure. That security is of the utmost importance to them. They may also use material goods and other pleasurable things to make themselves feel better.

Moon in Gemini: A Gemini Moon feels best when they are around people, chatting up a storm. The connections they have with others are what fuel their souls. They may use things like social media to unwind and express themselves.

Moon in Cancer: The Moon rules Cancer and so it is right at home here. These people are comfortable in their own homes. They put their emotions into taking care of others, though they don’t always see to their own needs.

Moon in Leo: These people need attention and spotlight in order to feel good. They are happiest when they have friends and partners who focus on them. Performance is often a great outlet for their emotions.

Moon in Virgo: Virgo Moons love to give and to help. They enjoy tending to the emotions of others but often keep their own guarded. They are happiest in neat and tidy environments and having structure can help them when they feel down. 

Moon in Libra: These people crave peace and harmony. They feel best when everything is running smoothly. Arguments can send them into emotional turmoil until everything is smoothed over.

Their decision-making is often fueled by their emotions as well.

Moon in Scorpio: These people are intense! They feel their emotions strongly. Or not at all. They want to be able to trust the people around them but this trust is not readily given. It may take them some time to open up their hearts to others. 

Moon in Sagittarius: These people tend to be highly optimistic. They are happiest when they feel free and like they are getting everything out of life that they can. Travel and philosophical thinking are what fuels their souls. 

Moon in Capricorn: A person with this placement may not appear outwardly emotional. They may even come across as cold.

They have a hard time dealing with their own emotions and would rather push them down in favor of focusing on the task at hand.

Moon in Aquarius: This is another sign that doesn’t like to feel their feelings. These are fun people with loads of ideas but they want to tell you what they think, not how they feel.

Moon in Pisces: These are highly sensitive people. Their emotions have hidden depths that sometimes they can’t even get to the bottom of. They feel deeply and can be empaths, feeling the emotions of others as well.

Mercury

Keywords associated with Mercury are:

  • Thought
  • Communication
  • Mind
  • Logic
  • Writing
  • Speech
  • Gossip
  • Memory

If you know your Sun sign, you can easily take a guess at what sign Mercury is in. Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun so this planet is always going to be either in the same sign as the Sun or one sign before or after.

Therefore, if the Sun is in Sagittarius on your chart, Mercury can only be in Sagittarius, Scorpio, or Capricorn. 

Mercury can stay in one sign anywhere from 15 days to two months. The time period in which Mercury stays in a sign varies widely due it frequently going retrograde.

“Retrograde” simply means that the planet appears to be moving backward in the sky, due to how we see the planet revolving around the Sun from our viewpoint on earth.

Mercury goes retrograde three times per year for about three weeks. 

Mercury is named for a Roman god who is both a trickster and a messenger. This shows off the nature of Mercury perfectly! 

Where Mercury is at will determine how you communicate. Mercury is also in charge of thoughts and thinking. Mercury wants to spread information and the sign it is in will show you how it does this.

How we make decisions is also governed by Mercury.

The trickster part comes out when Mercury goes retrograde. Again, this is when it appears to be moving backward in the sky.

During this time, people often avoid making big decisions or signing contracts. There can be huge communication breakdowns and problems with technology.

Miscommunications happen often and it is definitely not a fun time! 

Mercury rules over both Gemini and Virgo. One of the colors associated with the planet is the color green.

Mercury in Zodiacs

Mercury in Aries: These are quick decision-makers. They don’t always actually take the time to think before making these decisions, in fact. They are also blunt and direct in their communication.

This doesn’t always come off well but they are not meaning to be cruel. They just don’t see the point in fluffing things up.

Mercury in Taurus: On the other hand, Taurus Mercury people take a while to come to a decision.

They take their time thinking about things. When it comes to information, they like to process thoughts using all their senses. Which means, Taurus in Mercury aren’t quick speakers and like to think first about what they will say before speaking.

Mercury in Gemini: Gemini loves to talk and they are quick thinkers. They might appear all over the place, jumping from topic to the next.

They like to gather a little bit of information about everything and enjoy sharing this information with others. This can lead to them being quite the gossip.

Mercury in Cancer: This is the type of person who communicates with their emotions. They come across as highly sensitive and aren’t very talkative people usually.

They are reflective and take their time when arriving at a decision. 

Mercury in Leo: If Mercury in Leo says something, they say it like they mean it. They have a natural charm about them and people may love to listen to them talk.

They can be very persuasive and also enjoy engaging in witty conversations.

Mercury in Virgo: These people are very detail-oriented. They speak in a practical, no-fuss manner. If you reach out to them, they are quick to get back to you.

They learn and process information best when in structured environments. 

Mercury in Libra: This placement makes for a highly diplomatic person. They like to hear all sides of an argument and process information by looking at as much of it as possible.

They try to communicate fairly with people but have difficulty communicating their own opinions at times. 

Mercury in Scorpio: These people are deep thinkers. They want to gather as much information as they can in order to get to the bottom of things.

They’re also highly observant and gather the information that way. Those with this placement speak passionately and are good at giving advice. 

Mercury in Sagittarius: Sagittarius likes to be free and their way of thinking and communicating goes right along with this.

They have big ideas and love to tell you about them. They’re focused on the big picture and might miss some details here and there. They love talking about philosophy.

Mercury in Capricorn: The way these people speak is very deliberate. They do not like to have too much information thrown at them at once, instead preferring to get it in small chunks that they can then analyze before moving onto the next thing.

The way they communicate with others can come across and cold and overly practical and this can lead to miscommunications.

Mercury in Aquarius: People with this placement love debates. They enjoy seeing things from different perspectives and also love to point out the flaws in an argument.

Can be highly intellectual, they’re always interesting to talk to as they have unique views to offer on different topics. 

Mercury in Pisces: These people communicate warmly and say what they feel. At the same time, make great listeners as well.

Pisces in Mercury can talk as much as anyone else but they don’t feel the need to take up the spotlight and will allow others to have their say just as often.

Venus

Keywords associated with Venus are:

  • Romance
  • Relationships
  • Love
  • Beauty
  • Values
  • Aesthetic
  • Harmony
  • Charm

Venus is another planet that never strays far from the Sun. It can only be as far as two signs away. This means that if you have your Sun in Gemini, Venus can only be in Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Taurus, or Aries. 

Venus stays in one sign for about 30 days. 

This planet is not just about love, though that is certainly a part of it! Romance and relationships are ruled by Venus. Venus is the Roman goddess of love and beauty, after all.

Venus also shows us what we value. It tells us about what pleases us in life and how we enjoy those pleasures. 

We can learn about our sensuality from Venus, as well as our artistic abilities. Venus tells us what brings us joy.

Venus rules over both Taurus and Libra. A color associated with the planet is the color white.

Want to see how Venus works? Take a look at it in each sign.

Venus in Aries: These people are upfront about their romantic intentions. They can be very direct when flirting and appear charming or overly self-centered, depending on who you are. They are energetic and fun-loving.

Venus in Taurus: This is a sensual placement for Venus. These people enjoy material things and love to cuddle. They like to be comfortable. They appreciate the finer things in life as well.

Venus in Gemini: This type of person flirts by being witty and truly enjoy romances that are light, that don’t make them feel tied down.

They may not have one “type”, finding something interesting in all sorts of people. They enjoy things that stimulate their mind: books, social events, even art that makes you think.

Venus in Cancer: People with Venus in Cancer love commitment. They like to be comfortable and secure in a relationship, have a lot to give, and are sensitive people.

Venus in Cancer has strong attachments to their home and are often sentimental.

They like to feel that “spark” in relationships, not wanting to get too settled or feel bored.

They can express love through criticisms that are meant to help, not hurt. They enjoy calm, practical people and don’t like to over-indulge.

Venus in Sagittarius: Sagittarius Venus people see relationships as a way to learn and grow. They want to continue to travel and be adventurous, just with a partner instead of alone.

Sagittarius in Venus may find it hard to commit, however. They enjoy being able to discuss philosophical things with their partners. 

Venus in Capricorn: Venus in Capricorn wants to seem like they have it all together when they are in a relationship. They want their partner to feel like they are secure and dependable.

They can often come across as “cold”, however, as they aren’t the most outwardly affectionate people. 

Venus in Aquarius: Aquarians don’t always like to follow the rules when it comes to relationships. They can appear detached at times and are not outwardly emotional.

They love to engage in intellectual discussions with their partners. The best relationships with them are also ones where they are good friends with their lovers. 

Venus in Pisces: These people have an appreciation for soft romance. They are sensitive and caring but keep in mind that this isn’t going to be solely directed at their partner.

They want to feel loved unconditionally and will give their partners that same love in return.

  • Action
  • Assertive
  • Anger
  • Impulsive
  • Will
  • Passion
  • Drive
  • Aggression
  • Energy
  • Lust

Mars is the last of the personal planets. It can stray a lot further from the Sun, meaning that you have more options when it comes to Sun-Mars combinations. 

Mars stays in one sign for about 2 months. However, retrograde motion can keep it in one sign for as long as 7 months! Mars goes not go retrograde as frequently as Mercury, however.

Mars is all about our passions in life. This is what gets us going, what fires us up. This is also how we express anger.

Where Venus is love, Mars is sex. The kind of physical intimacy we enjoy can be found by looking at where Mars lies in our charts. 

Mars rules over both Aries and Scorpio. A color associated with the planet is the color red.

How does Mars drive each sign? Find out below. 

Mars in Aries: Aries makes for an especially impulsive Mars. These people act now, think later.

They have quick tempers generally and do not shy away from letting people know they’ve been angered. They are good at thinking on their toes and in some situations, their need to act is extremely helpful.

Mars in Taurus: These people have enough drive to stick with something when they put their minds to it. They are not quick to anger but when they do get mad, they can have quite a temper.

They are often driven by the need for security and material possessions. When it comes to sex, they can be extremely sensual.

Mars in Gemini: The passions of people with this placement can be all over the place. They tend to be scattered and constantly have to be doing something.

When they get angry, words are their weapon of choice. They often know exactly what to say to hurt. These people may need to channel nervous energy through their hands.

Mars in Cancer: The way people with this placement express anger is by being more passive-aggressive than outright aggressive. They are driven by their emotions, in all aspects of their lives including sex.

Mars in Scorpio: Mars in Scorpio throws themselves entirely into what they do. They have a high amount of willpower. When angered, you might not always be able to tell because they appear calm.

Mars in Sagittarius: These people don’t express their anger well. Rather, they prefer to run away and not express it at all. They tend to be restless and impatient.

They may feel passionate about many things and get a lot of things going but have a hard time staying motivated. Those with this placement are passionate but not always patient lovers.

  • Optimism
  • Luck

  • Faith
  • Generosity

Jupiter is the first of the interpersonal planets. 

Jupiter stays in one sign for about one year, meaning it completes its cycle through the signs in 12 years.

A nickname for this planet is the “Great Benefic”. It is considered to be a lucky, fortunate planet. Where you have Jupiter in your chart will show you how you attract good fortune and what kind you attract as well.

It is a very optimistic planet and you may feel like themes surrounding the sign and house Jupiter is in may come easy to you.

This is also a planet of expansion. Whatever area of your life it rules over, it is going to make that area larger than life. Is it in your Fifth House of Creativity?

You might be an extremely creative person or have many creative pursuits. What about your Seventh House of Partnerships?

You may have many, many relationships or you could have excellent luck in just one. This can play out in many ways.

This expansiveness isn’t always a good thing. If left unchecked, things can get out of control and you may wind up with too much of a good thing.

Being lucky in love sounds great until you realize you’ve got a fear of commitment and are just endlessly moving from one relationship to the next.

Jupiter will show you how you can best interact with other people in order to truly take advantage of the natural “luck” inside of you.

You have a natural knack for something but coasting by on things that are easy isn’t the best way to make things happen. You have to do that yourself!

Saturn

Keywords associated with Saturn are:

  • Responsibility
  • Maturity
  • Limits
  • Denial
  • Boundaries
  • Duty
  • Discipline

Saturn is the second interpersonal planet and also the last of the planets visible to the naked eye. This means that is also the last of planets found in classical astrology.

Planets beyond Saturn do not have a sign that they traditionally rule.

Saturn stays in one sign for 2.5 years, completing an entire cycle in 29-30 years. You may have heard about the Saturn Return before.

This is considered to be a very significant time in the life of a person, a time in which a lot of change is brought about.

Many people fear the Saturn Return but they shouldn’t! Change can come in many forms. Yes, this is often a time where many people who married young end of getting divorced.

During this time people often end relationships or switch careers. 

If you think about the Saturn Return as a time to reflect and think about what you really want in life, it makes sense that certain things would come to an end.

Sometimes relationships and careers we once thought beneficial end up hindering us on our path in life and they need to come to an end.

Saturn is known as the “Great Malefic”, adding more to its bad reputation. The sign this planet is in will show you an area of life you may have difficulty in.

This might be something you feel is repressed or a topic that makes you uncomfortable. 

Having personal planets in the same sign as Saturn can also suppress those planets. For example, having the Moon and Saturn together could mean the suppression of your emotions.

You might have trouble accessing them or expressing them.

Saturn is honestly here to teach us lessons. Yes, it can make things difficult, but it doesn’t make them impossible! If you learn to work with the planet, you can rise up to its challenges and come out successful in the end. 

Saturn is the traditional ruler of Capricorn and Aquarius. A color associated with this planet is the color is black.

Saturn in Aries: The lesson these people need to learn is to not let their domineering spirit get the best of them. They may have trouble finishing things because they don’t ask for help.

Saturn in Taurus: The lesson for these people is to live within their means. They need to become better money managers. It’s all fine and well to dream big but if you can’t afford a life of luxury, don’t spend like you can! 

Saturn in Gemini: These people need to learn how to express themselves and speak up. Gemini wants to gab! Your opinions are important and you need to make them known. 

Saturn in Cancer: Saturn in Cancer needs to learn how to get out of their shell. Taking care of others can be a strength but don’t let it stifle you and lead to you refusing to separate from your family. 

Saturn in Leo: This is another Saturn placement that needs to find their voice. They also need to learn how to not overindulge. Leo wants to be on the stage and it might take a while to get there, but you can do it! 

Saturn in Virgo: These people need to learn that while order and the small details can be important, sometimes you also need to go with the flow. Chaos isn’t always a bad thing and you can get past it even when it is.

Saturn in Libra: People with this placement need to learn how to truly compromise. Keeping the peace by yielding and not having your own needs met is not how to achieve true harmony in a relationship.

Saturn in Scorpio: These people may deal with issues with surrounding success and even their own bodies.

They need to learn how to let these problems die in order to rise above them and become the powerful, confident person that Scorpio can be.

Saturn in Sagittarius: Saturn in Sagittarius needs to learn how to give in to their desire for adventure. Learning all you can and traveling in order to understand the world is how you are going to find your power.

Saturn in Capricorn: These people have goals they just don’t always go about achieving them the right way. They need to learn that having ambition is good and they shouldn’t let Saturn stifle it but you don’t need to manifest your dreams at the cost of other things.

  • Liberation

Uranus is the first of the transpersonal planets. It was not discovered until 1781 so you will not see anything about it in classical astrology.

In fact, many modern astrologers hesitate to even give Uranus or the other transpersonal planets governance over any of the signs due to how relatively young our knowledge about them is compared to the other planets.

Uranus takes 84 years to go through the entire zodiac, staying in each sign for about seven years.

Uranus is all about revolution and how we express our individuality and freedom. It is considered to be a “weird” planet that brings eccentricity to whatever area of life it is governing in the chart. 

This is one of the planets we talk about in terms of “generations”. Seven years is a long enough time for this planet to have an effect on the world as a whole, not just on individual people.

Astrologers look at how Uranus was changing the climate of the time period it was in, as well as how it affects the cohort of people who have it in the same sign.

This planet really shakes things up! It can bring huge amounts of change to whatever area the sign it is in governs. The energy it brings can be chaotic but it can also be extremely liberating.

People born during the seven years it stays in one sign often continue to bring about the changes Uranus started while they were being born.

Uranus does not traditionally rule over any signs, as it was not discovered until modern times. Some modern astrologers say that it rules over Aquarius.

Uranus in Aries: Uranus in Aries generations want to look for things that are out of the ordinary. They are daring and fight for originality. 

Uranus in Taurus: This generation can feel a clash between the sticking power of Taurus and the changing nature of Uranus. However, the stubborn quality means that once they decide something needs to give, they aren’t giving up until it does.

Uranus in Gemini: This is a restless generation with a focus on changing the way we communicate. The color television was invented right before this generation began and it made huge changes to the world while Uranus was in Gemini.

Uranus in Cancer: This generation has a focus on learning how to work with people who are different from them. They are all about teaching tolerance and pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone. 

Uranus in Leo: Power is a key theme of this generation. They want to find the balance in their own individual power as it relates to the power structures around them. 

Uranus in Virgo: “Going green” is one way Uranus in Virgo wants to change the world. This generation wants to bring back the tangible things in life and reconnect to the Earth.

Uranus in Libra: This generation is all about equality. They fight for things like LGBT rights and racial equality. In fact, the Stonewall Riots took place took place while Uranus was in Libra.

Uranus in Scorpio: This is a powerful and intense generation. They are all about bringing the taboo out of the underground and into the light. Think of all the sexual revolutions that took place in the 70s and 80s and that will show you this generation’s flare.

Uranus in Sagittarius: This generation wants you to open your mind. It longs to adventure out into the world and connect to other cultures in order to bring about change in the world.

Uranus in Capricorn: This is the generation Millennials belong to! This generation is all about creating change by utilizing the conventional. They like to change structures from within. 

Uranus in Aquarius: This is a very humanitarian generation. They value independence and believe that one person can make a difference. Many members of the Gen Z generation have Uranus in Aquarius. 

Uranus in Pisces: This is a young generation. They are all about idealism and using that to make a change in the world. If they can channel that energy correctly, they can bring about many changes to make the world a more harmonious place.

Neptune

Keywords associated with Neptune are:

  • Confusion
  • Idealism
  • Spirituality
  • Dreams
  • Inspiration
  • Artistic
  • Glamor 
  • Guilt
  • Dissolution

Neptune was discovered in 1846 and is another planet that is not part of classical astrology. 

Neptune takes 164 years to go through all the signs, spending about 14 years in each one. This is one of two planets where you won’t be around to experience its return! Unless people start living beyond 164 years, that is. Dreamy Neptune might be all about that.

This is another generational planet where we can look at the group as a whole to get an idea of what Neptune in each sign means. People may not be personally affected by Neptune in their charts, unless they have a personal planet in the same sign or another strong aspect to Neptune.

Neptune can show us where the delusions of our generation are. It can also help us to transcend these delusions. 

This is another planet that is here to teach us and our generations a lesson. There is something that we get so caught up in dreaming about, we don’t act or actually make those dreams a reality.

Maybe we dream of fame so much that we think it will just come about, without any work required on our part.

Neptune can hide things and get them lost in the ether. Part of working with Neptune is learning to dissolve the clouds around it and find the action to make your dreams a reality.

It is a very mysterious planet. Modern astrologers don’t have examples of people to see how this planet works in all signs. We often have to look back on periods in the past to get a better idea of how Neptune functions.

Like Uranus, Neptune is not a traditional ruler over any signs. Some modern astrologers say that it rules over Pisces.

Neptune in Aries: There is nobody alive today who has this Neptune placement and there won’t be for a few more years! Neptune in Aries can have delusions around what they find exciting. These people need to learn to not get too lost in their imagination. 

Neptune in Taurus: This is another Neptune placement without living examples to look at. There may be problems with money and fantasizing too much about material things. 

Neptune in Gemini: Communication is where Neptune in Gemini can get caught up. They may idealize and dream about education so much that they never actually get around to achieving the knowledge they seek.

Neptune in Cancer: There are a few people with this placement alive today but only those few who lived to be beyond 100. They can get highly emotional about their values regarding home and family.

They may cling to traditions or familial relationships that no longer serve them.

Neptune in Leo: Other people can get lost in the allure of Neptune in Leo. This placement is all about seeming impressive and needs to learn to not lose themselves in their delusions of grandeur. 

Neptune in Virgo: The idealism of this generation surrounds health and service. They may get so caught up in the small details and in their own beliefs about this that they miss the big picture.

Neptune in Libra: This generation can get so caught up in seeking harmony that they become stagnate and indecisive. Freedom and justice can be achieved but they need to get out of their own heads and act on their beliefs.

Neptune in Scorpio: These people can have deep, dark dreams. Sometimes literally. One way they can become disillusioned and lose sight of themselves is through cults or similar practices. They need to learn not to believe in things just because they fit that occult aesthetic.

Neptune in Sagittarius: These people can get caught up in their own minds, overvaluing higher thinking. They can also be too tolerant of other ideas and miss that there are negative views in this world.

Neptune in Capricorn: This generation dreams of power and wealth but has no idea how to actually make it happen. They need to learn to stop dreaming and start doing.

Neptune in Aquarius: This generation can end up rebelling for rebellion’s sake. They need to learn to harness their powers of independence and freedom to focus on certain causes, not just on causing a ruckus. 

Neptune in Pisces: This is a particularly dreamy generation because of Pisces. They can become self-sacrificing or even have problems with drugs on their quest for spirituality and inspiration.

Pluto

Keywords associated with Pluto are:

  • Death
  • Rebirth
  • Transformation
  • Power
  • Abuse
  • Taboo
  • Obsession
  • Hidden
  • Underworld
  • Decay

Pluto was the last of the planets to be discovered, only being found in 1930. Even though it has since been “demoted” to a dwarf planet, it is still one of the main planets that modern astrologers use. 

Pluto stays in one sign for 248 years, staying in each one for 10-20 years. Again, you will never experience a Pluto Return in your lifetime.

However, some people believe that Pluto Returns after death are important to look at. Long dead celebrities may experience a resurgence of relevance in pop culture during their Pluto return.

Things that were previously unknown about them might come to light. 

Pluto is all about power. This is often social power as opposed to personal power, since it is a generational planet. It deals with both destruction and creation. Life, death, and rebirth are themes of this planet as well. 

Pluto is named for the Roman god of the underworld (also known as Hades in Greek mythology).

As such, it deals with hidden things and things “below the ground”. It has a strong tie to occult and metaphysical forces.

People who have personal planets in the same sign as Pluto will feel its power strongly. For example, you might have the Sun and Venus in Scorpio along with your Pluto in Scorpio.

This is going to make for a highly intuitive, even psychic person. They have strong ties to themes of the underworld and may be obsessed with death and everything related to it.

Only six of the twelve signs really have people with Pluto in them in their charts living today. These are Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius.

You can take a stab at what sign your Pluto is in based on how old you are. The oldest living people probably have Cancer while the youngest have Sagittarius.

Pluto also does not traditionally rule over any signs. Modern astrologers have designated it the ruler of Scorpio.

Honestly, we do not know much about Pluto in the signs that don’t have living people with those placements. Pluto was only discovered in 1930, and we are still figuring out this mysterious planet.

Here is some information about the signs we do know about:

Pluto in Cancer: This is the Silent Generation. It is also known as the Traditionalist Generation. Their power comes through sticking with tradition, and they have a hard time letting that die.

Pluto in Leo: These are the Baby Boomers. They find their power through competition and also optimism. They have a hard time with people they believe to be negative or pessimistic.

Pluto in Virgo: This is mostly Gen X though some Baby Boomers also fit into this because of some crazy retrograde motion going on with Pluto at the time. These people are skeptics for sure.

They can also be hypercritical and find their power by questioning everything.

Pluto in Libra: The wild retrograde motion continues with Pluto in Libra. Gen X and Millennials may both have this placement. These people want to break down barriers that create inequality.

Because this is Libra, the Gen Xers and Millennials often disagree about how to go about this. 

Pluto in Scorpio: These are most of the rest of the Millennials. Occult topics saw a rise during this generation, naturally with both Pluto and Scorpio loving all things occult and metaphysical.

This generation has a “darker” flavor. They want to kill the negative views other generations have about sex and taboo topics and rebuild a world where those things are commonly accepted.

Pluto in Sagittarius: Very late Millennials and Gen Z make up this generation. This is a generation that wants freedom for everyone. Traditional ideas about religion, sexuality, and gender are dying with this generation, and they are rebuilding them. 

Many of us will not be around to discover how Pluto works in other signs. Honestly, this fits with the theme of Pluto. It is never going to reveal all of its secrets to every one of us.

Lunar & Planetary Nodes

The lunar and planetary nodes are a lesser-known aspect of the chart, even to some practicing astrologers. 

The nodes are not physical bodies. The lunar nodes are the points in which the Moon crosses the ecliptic (the apparent path of the Sun across the sky over the year). Planetary nodes are the same.

They are the points in which the planets cross the ecliptic. Lunar nodes are far more popular in astrology than planetary nodes are, but some astrologers do use the planetary nodes. 

Nodes come in sets – the North Nodes and the South Nodes. This means that there are only so many combinations of nodes you can have.

The North Node will always be in the sign opposite the sign of the South Node and vice versa. For example, if your Lunar North Node is in Capricorn, the South Node is going to be in Cancer.

The Lunar Nodes

An interesting thing about the Lunar Nodes is that they are also the points at which we see eclipses. Remember that a Lunar Node is where the path of the Moon crosses the path of the Sun.

When the Nodes occur during a Full Moon, we get a Lunar Eclipse. When the Nodes occur during a New Moon, we get a Solar Eclipse. 

You can use this knowledge to tell if you were born during an eclipse. If your Sun sign is on a Node, you can reasonably assume that an eclipse was taking place while you were born. 

The South Node is said to be the qualities you possess innately. These may be qualities you fall back on too often and need to move away from in order to achieve your full potential.

The North Node is what you are “moving toward”. These are the qualities you need to work on. This will show you the person you truly need to be. 

The Node combinations are also referred to as an Axis. The same themes are going to come up with, for example, people with their North Node in Taurus and their South Node in Scorpio.

This is also the case with people who have the opposite configuration.

Aries/Libra Axis: The theme of this axis is “Individuality vs. Relationships”. These people need to learn to balance the two themes, with South Node

Aries needing to move toward learning the value of relationships and South Node Libra needing to learn how to be their own person.

Taurus/Scorpio Axis: The theme of this axis is “Materials vs. Spirituality”. Taurus South Node needs to learn to be a little less practical and focused on the material world. Scorpio South Node needs to become a little more down to earth.

Gemini/Taurus Axis: The theme of this axis is “Local vs. Global”. Gemini South Node is comfortable with learning lots of things and sharing them with those they are close to.

They need to learn to expand their minds. Sagittarius South Node needs to learn how to stay in one place and how to appreciate that not all knowledge needs to be deep and philosophical.

Cancer/Capricorn Axis: This is the “Personal vs. Professional” axis. The Cancer South Node is comfortable in the home and with caring for others and needs to learn to have some more ambition out in the world.

Capricorn South Node needs to learn how to be more compassionate and place others ahead of their career sometimes.

Leo/Aquarius Axis: This is the “Ego vs. Group” axis. Leo South Nodes need to learn how to cool their ego down and do things that benefit the community as a whole.

Aquarius South Nodes need to learn how to not lose their individuality in the crowd.

Virgo/Pisces Axis: This is the “Left Brain vs. Right Brain” axis. Virgo South Nodes need to learn that being logical all the time doesn’t truly serve them. Pisces South Nodes need to learn how to get out of the fantasy world every now and then.

Planetary Nodes

These nodes function in similar ways to the Lunar Nodes, just with the different planets. These are where the paths of the planets intersect with the path of the Sun. 

These are the pros and cons of our lives as related to the themes of the planet. Communication for Mercury, romance for Venus, passion for Mars, fortune for Jupiter, revolution for Uranus, dreams for Neptune, and death/rebirth for Pluto. 

You can look at the Planetary Nodes to find out where your natural strengths are and what you need to work toward in your life in regards to the topics of the individual planets.

Ceres

Some keywords associated with Ceres are:

  • Earth
  • Unconditional love
  • Acceptance
  • Sharing
  • Letting go
  • Loss
  • Death and renewal
  • Nourishment

Ceres is one of the “goddess asteroids”. Ceres is the Roman goddess of Earth and grain. Her story is related to the one of Demeter and Persephone. In the story, Demeter loses her beloved daughter Persephone to the underworld. She eventually is reunited with her, but only for half the year, before Persephone once again returns to the underworld. 

In the Winter, when Persephone is in the underworld, Demeter does not nurture the Earth. Nothing grows. When Persephone returns in the Spring, Demeter again fills the Earth with plants and life.

This is actually an aspect of the chart we are still learning about. More research is needed, though we do know a bit about what Ceres can tell us about ourselves.

Ceres in the chart is all about the theme of this story. It is about how we deal with loss and letting go. It is about the cycles of death and renewal. Ceres also speaks to unconditional love, such as that of a parent for a child. 

Ceres can also tell us about how we can care for ourselves and others. This is our “love language”.

Ceres in Zodiacs

Ceres in Aries: Aries shows love by allowing others to be independent. They can be extremely protective of their family and loved ones. They need to be nurtured in ways that don’t make them feel stifled or dominated. 

Ceres in Taurus: Taurus shows love by providing food, shelter, and other necessary things in life. They are also nurtured by receiving these things. They are sensual and also like to feel loved through touch. 

Ceres in Gemini: Gemini’s love language is communication. They feel loved when they are speaking with their loved ones or when they get a letter, text, or email from them. They share information to show others that they care. When they can take part in intellectually stimulating activities, they feel nurtured.

Ceres in Cancer: Cancer shows love best in the home. They love to nurture others and be nurtured in return. They show love with physical affection and also with things like cooking or taking care of the home. Feeling a lack of care can send them into a tailspin where they feel the whole world is against them. They need to feel loved.

Ceres in Leo: Caring for others is something Leo takes pride in. They like to make others feel confident in themselves and project a sense of self-confidence as well. They aren’t the most emotionally available people but do they try. When they are receiving attention that’s when they feel most loved. 

Ceres in Virgo: Criticism can oddly enough play a role in how Virgo shows they care. They are not trying to be cruel since honestly they just want to help. They themselves are nurtured when they feel productive, like they are doing something important. 

Ceres in Libra: The beautiful things in life are what nurture Libra. It is also all about the small things. Little tokens of affection are noticed by Libra, and they appreciate them. They show their love by sharing with others and by being sensitive to their feelings. 

Ceres in Scorpio: Touch and physical intimacy are how Scorpio shows their love. They also enjoy helping others to heal, especially from emotional wounds. They crave stability, and jealousy is one way they lash out if they don’t feel cared for. 

Ceres in Sagittarius: It may not always be easy to see how Sagittarius expresses their affections. They are not the most nurturing of people, because they just don’t know how to be sometimes, however, Sagittarius are great at teaching others. They themselves feel nurtured when they can explore.

Ceres in Capricorn: Structure makes Capricorn feel nurtured. They show they care by doing things like helping their loved ones organize. They can sometimes be harsh on themselves, feeling like they are only worthy of love if they are productive and performing to their own expectations. 

Ceres in Aquarius: Aquarius feels loved by having people all around them. They enjoy spending time with friends and family and feel nurtured when they feel like they are accepted for who they are. Love for them is often expressed through acts of service.

Ceres in Pisces: Pisces is highly emotional and shows love by seeking to understand how others feel. They are very compassionate. Things that fuel their imagination help them to feel nurtured and cared for.

Chiron

Some keywords associated with Chiron are:

  • Mentor
  • Wounded healer
  • Mastery
  • Initiation
  • Abandonment 
  • Striving
  • Insecurity 

You may see Chiron referred to as both an asteroid and a comet. It is actually an object known as a “centaur”. These bodies orbit the Sun between Jupiter and Saturn and display traits of both asteroids and comets.

Chiron was the first of these objects discovered. It was found in 1977, so it is a very recent discovery and addition to astrology. 

Chiron spends 7-9 years in each sign, taking about 50 years to go through the entire zodiac.

Where Chiron is in your astrological chart shows you where you are most vulnerable. This is your “wound”. It may be a part of yourself that you are sensitive about, that you try to hide from or ignore.

This may also be an area of your life where you have unreasonable expectations for yourself.

With Chiron, the point is to learn from this wound and rise above it. You don’t need to erase the wound, rather you need to embrace it.

Using the knowledge you have gained from it can help you to become a better person and even to become a mentor to help others with their wounds.

Chiron in Zodiac Signs

Chiron in Aries: It is hard for these people to see their own self-worth and importance. They can see it in others easily and want to remind them of it. Through helping others realize their own strengths, this person can finally see what their own are.

Chiron in Taurus: The wound here is a sense of guilt over enjoying things. It can be hard for this person to treat themselves without feeling like they shouldn’t be doing it.

They would never deny somebody else the chance to do this, though! You don’t need to overindulge to feel secure, but it’s just as bad to deny yourself of everything enjoyable in life.

Chiron in Gemini: These people value communication but may not always feel comfortable talking and may even ramble on and on and then feel guilty about it.

They may also not speak up and then feel remorse over it. They want others to be able to express themselves genuinely and need to learn how to do this themselves. 

Chiron in Cancer: These people are very caring and kind. They are quick to stick up for people and root for them, offering help when needed. This compassion does not extend to themselves, however.

They can be very tough on themselves and need to learn how to care for themselves as well.

Chiron in Leo: This person values individuality. They want everyone around them to be able to shine their light. However, they feel ashamed if they think they themselves are being too prideful.

They may feel guilty about enjoying things or feel like their creative outlets aren’t enough. They need to learn how to express themselves.

Chiron in Virgo: This is another placement that makes a person great at helping others. These people are particularly good at helping other people to organize their lives.

Virgos can help others to not feel so overwhelmed. They, however, constantly feel overwhelmed and disorganized. They need to learn to adjust their expectations for themselves.

Chiron in Libra: People with this placement make great counselors. They value seeing all sides of a story in order to make a fair judgment though aren’t always fair to themselves.

They give way to others instead of compromising as hate conflict, too. Libras need to learn how to get past it without giving up who they are.

Chiron in Scorpio: This is another placement that can make for a person who is great at counseling and giving advice. These people understand intense emotions like jealousy.

They can help people to move past losses in their lives. They need to learn to embrace their own emotions and come to terms with loss for themselves, as they have difficulty doing these things.

Chiron in Sagittarius: These people want to believe in something beyond themselves and value philosophical thinking – the quest for higher truths.

They enjoy helping others to find their purpose but are completely lost as to what their own is. They need to learn to trust their own beliefs and move past their disillusionment with their own life’s purpose.

Chiron in Capricorn: This type of person is great at helping others set boundaries. They value structure and can help others to attain it since Capricorns are good at helping others achieve their goals but often can’t do so for themselves.

May feel overwhelmed by their goals or like the work they do isn’t enough to achieve them, they need to learn not to expect so much from themselves and to appreciate what they already do.

Chiron in Aquarius: These people value individuality but feel like they often can’t express their own. They empower others and need to learn how to empower themselves as well. 

Chiron in Pisces: These people have a soft spot for others, and this can lead to them forgiving too quickly. They allow others to be relieved of their guilt while holding onto their own. They need to learn to take just as well as they give.

Lilith

There are actually three Liliths in astrology. How confusing!

The first Lilith is the asteroid Lilith. This is a physical body. 

The second Lilith is Black Moon Lilith. This is the most commonly talked about, and you will see many modern astrologers using this. This is not a physical object. It is a point of alignment.

Black Moon Lilith is found in the Moon’s “apogee”, the point where its orbit is farthest from the Earth. Because of the Moon’s orbit, it has two centers. The Earth is one and Black Moon Lilith is the other. 

The third Lilith is Dark Moon Lilith. This is a “ghost Moon”. This is not a confirmed planetary body. It is a theoretical “second Moon” that some historical astronomers and astrologers claimed existed.

Supposedly, it resembles a dust cloud in the shape of a sphere.

We are going to discuss Black Moon Lilith. Most likely, if an astrologer just says “Lilith”, they are talking about this one. If they are talking about one of the other two, they typically will clarify.

Keywords associated with Black Moon Lilith are:

  • Priestess and prostitute
  • Magic
  • Forbidden fruit
  • Seduction
  • Psychic healing
  • Charisma
  • Altered states

Black Moon Lilith stays about nine months in each of the signs.

The name Lilith comes from a mythological figure. There are a few different myths surrounding Lilith (of course there are!), but the most common one says she was the first wife of the Biblical figure Adam, the first man. 

She was created at the same time as he was and considered herself to be equal to him. She refused to lie under him during sex. When he argued against this, she left the Garden of Eden.

After this, it is said she became a demon – a succubus. She is a figure who tempts men and derives her strength from their arousal.

She is also known in some myths as the first vampire, a demon that feasts off the blood of women and their babies.

Lilith is definitely a figure related to all things taboo. Her stories have lust and seduction as key themes.

Nowadays, Lilith is considered by some to be a feminist icon. She stood up against inequality and refused to bow down to a man. 

Black Moon Lilith is supposed to show the hidden parts of yourself, especially related to your sexual desires. This is your dark side. The parts of you that you may not want to think about or let show. 

Lilith can show us where we are repressed. It is our base sexuality, the raw impulses we feel deep inside. It also shows where we are vulnerable.

Knowing what sign Black Moon Lilith is in can tell you a lot about your “shadow” self. Secret sexual fantasies may also appear once you come to understand this aspect of your personality.

Where does Lilith fall in your chart?

Lilith in Zodiacs

Lilith in Aries: This placement can make for a person who is ruled by their impulses. This can become dangerous, especially when combined with their often aggressive nature. They need to learn how to control their impulses and aggression.

Lilith in Taurus: This person loves sex and pleasure. They are very sensual people and can be very charming. They need to learn how to control that sensuality, as there can in fact be too much of a good thing.

Lilith in Gemini: This person is restless. They aren’t easily satisified, if they ever are at all. They can be moody and argumentative and need to learn how to communicate in more constructive ways and how to be content.

Lilith in Cancer: This person can be very submissive and co-dependent. They are intuitive, and the negative side of this is emotional manipulation. They need to learn how to be their own person and find their independence. 

Lilith in Leo: Narcissism is this person’s middle name! They are very prideful and vain. Some Leos can use sex for attention and to feed their ego. They need to learn how to tone it down and kill some of that ego.

Lilith in Virgo: This person may feel shame when it comes to sex. This may be in part due to some of their sexual fantasies, which often have to do with BDSM. They need to learn how to overcome their feelings of shame and repression.

Lilith in Libra: These are highly seductive people. They are charming but easily see faults in others. They need to learn how to accept people, faults and all.

Lilith in Scorpio: Sex is highly passionate and erotic if you have this placement. A person with Lilith in Scorpio can be an extremely jealous and obsessive lover. They need to learn how to trust others. 

Lilith in Sagittarius: These people love adventure in the bedroom. They may have many affairs abroad and try all kinds of things. They need to learn how to get in touch with their spiritual side.

Lilith in Capricorn: If this person does not feel their needs are being met, they can become ruthless and cold. They may also have trouble with mixing business and pleasure therefore, need to learn how to separate those two aspects of their lives.

Lilith in Aquarius: This person enjoys rebellious sex and loves partners who stand out. Aquarius love nothing more than to feel free and don’t always empathize with others. However, they need to learn how to do so.

Lilith in Pisces: Fantasies run high with this person. Sex can be a means of escaping reality. This person may be repressed in some ways. They need to learn how to find reality amidst all the fantasies.
