Astronomical symbols/glyphs representing the Sun, Moon, Pluto and planets, along with the Earth, in Western astrology.
Astronomical symbols/glyphs representing the Sun, Moon, Pluto and planets, along with the Earth, in Western astrology.

In astrology, planet differs from its modern usage. Astrology utilises the ancient geocentric model of the universe in its calculations and thus employs the term in its original geocentric sense. Before the age of telescopes, the night sky was observed to consist of two very similar components: fixed stars, which remained motionless in relation to each other, and wandering stars, (in ancient Greek: asteres planetai) which appeared to shift their positions relative to the fixed stars over the course of the year. To the Greeks and the other earliest astronomers, this group included the Sun and the Moon along with the five planets visible to the naked eye, excluding the earth.

Modern planets

Since the invention of the telescope, Western astrology has incorporated Uranus, Neptune and Pluto into its methodology. Other astrologies have tended to retain the ancient seven-planet system. Meanings have had to be assigned to them by modern astrologers, usually according to the major events which occurred in the world at the time of their discovery.


Uranus

For some modern Western astrologers, the planet Uranus ( Image:Uranus-symbol.png) is the ruling planet of Aquarius. Manilius was unaware of the planet's existence, because it was discovered only in 1781 by Sir William Herschel. Modern interpretation associates Uranus with the principles of genius, new and unconventional ideas, discoveries, electricity, inventions, and radical politics, among other things. Around the period of discovery in 1781, the idea of democracy and the human rights was prevalent, with the breakaway of the American colonies from England and a few years later in 1789, the French revolution.

Neptune

Modern Western astrologers associate the planet Neptune ( Image:Neptune-symbol.png) with illusion, deception, religions, spirituality, the mass media, music, drugs, extreme sensitivity, psychic phenomena and altered mental states. The discovery of Neptune in 1846 coincided with the discovery of anesthetics and hypnotism around this period.

For some astrologers, Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces. Prior to the discovery of Neptune, Jupiter was considered the ruler of Pisces, and some modern astrologers consider Jupiter a co-ruler of Pisces. Some astrologers do not believe that Neptune rules any particular sign, even though they may use the planet in interpretation. For the astrological sign, see Pisces. ...


Pluto

To some modern Western astrologers, Pluto ( Image:Pluto-symbol.png) is the ruling planet of Scorpio. Called "the great renewer", Pluto is considered to represent the part of a person that destroys in order to renew. A commonly used keyword for Pluto is "transformation". Many more traditional astrologers do not use Pluto as a ruling planet, but do use the planet for interpretation and predictive work.

Scorpio (Sanskrit: Vrishaka, Arabic/Urdu: عقربAqrub) is the eighth astrological sign of the Zodiac, ranging from 210 to 240 degrees of ecliptic. ...


Pluto is also associated with extreme power and corruption; the discovery of Pluto in 1930 coincided with the rise of fascism and Stalinism in Europe and the major proliferation of organized crime in the United States. It is also associated with nuclear armament, which had its genesis in the research of that decade. Fascism is a radical political ideology that combines elements of corporatism, authoritarianism, nationalism, militarism, anti-anarchism, anti-communism and anti-liberalism. ...

Modern discoveries

Several new planet-sized bodies, including Sedna, Quaoar, and 2003 UB313 ("Xena"), have been discovered in the 21st century but not yet incorporated into mainstream astrological predictions, although some more avant-garde groups attempt to incorporate them see Karmastrology.com. 90377 Sedna is a trans-Neptunian object, discovered by Michael Brown (Caltech), Chad Trujillo (Gemini Observatory) and David Rabinowitz (Yale University) on November 14, 2003. ...

Some asteroids can be seen with the naked eye, such as Ceres ( ), Pallas ( ) and Vesta ( ), but were not recognized as planetary, and perhaps not even noticed, until the early 1800s. In the early 1800s, 4 asteroids were scientifically recognized as planets, Ceres, Pallas, Juno ( ) and Vesta. They qualify as minor planets by some definitions. Although asteroids have been known to both astronomers and astrologers for more than 200 years, they are often ignored by astrologers. The tradition of some astrologers casting minor planets originates with these four asteroids.

Since the 1970's, and the discovery of Chiron ( ), some astrologers have been casting the new "planet", although astronomers consider it a comet. 2060 Chiron (IPA: ) is an object in the outer solar system with an orbit between those of Saturn and Uranus and a radius of 71±5 km [1]. Although it was initially classified as an asteroid, later dispute arose as to whether it was an asteroid or actually a comet. ... Image File history File links Chiron. ...

Ruling planets of the astrological signs

In Western astrology, the symbolism associated with the planets also relates to the signs in their various rulerships. For instance, the description of Mars is masculine, impulsive, and active. Aries is ruled by Mars and has a similar description, representing an active, masculine archetype. The symbols used in Western Astrology to represent the Astrological signs Both Western and Vedic astrology employ a zodiac which divides the ecliptic into twelve Astrological signs of equal length. ...
