For thousands of years, people from all over the world have been looking into stars above, trying to find answers to ultimate questions of our purpose in this universe.
Why are we here and how did we came here, in the first place? What is our purpose and are there divine entities listening to our questions? As you know, planets we carefully observe all carry sacred names of ancient deities.
Astrological planets are named after great gods of the past and they carry their meanings, in form of archetypes. Astrology, as it is, is a very old, ancient path of understanding the cosmos and our place within it. There are different paths, in different parts of the world.
There we have great and very complex systems, such as Chinese and Vedic astrology.
We are the most familiar with Western astrology, which originates from old Persia. The exact time of its birth is unknown, but it is believed it seizes back into far past, in times as old as several millennia. This Western astrology is still in wide use.
The name astrology or astrologia in Greek, means the ‘science of the stars’, from old words astron and logia, which mean a star and to know of.
Astrology is a scientific-like discipline, having all elements that constitute any modern and officially recognized science, with its principles, methodology, knowledge and rules. However, today it is not seen as an official science, but a pseudo science. Conventional scholars of the modern day are skeptical about astrological interpretations.
They, perhaps, have some right to be suspicious, since astrology could be very abstract, very flexible and imaginative. In addition, it is commonly misused or misinterpreted. To be an astrologer is not an easy call, because what you offer your clients is for a great part, your own creation. Each personalized horoscope is unique piece.
Personalized horoscopes are exactly what most of people are interested in. They want to know about their life and future or that or their loved ones. They search for answers on why some things in their life are happening or have happened the way they did. They want to know if stars are in favor their love relationship, their career goals and so on.
Astrological analysis could answer these questions, but only to certain point.
There are no direct answers in astrology, because stars show what you are predisposed to and what capacities you, as an individual, possess. This means that the way your potentials would manifest in reality depends greatly on you.
You should use astrological knowledge to make the best out of it.
Personal Planets – The Luminaries
When we talk about astrology and stars, we actually focus on planets. Western modern astrology focuses on known planets of the Solar system. In ancient astrology, not all of them were enlisted, since planets further from Saturn were not seen.
That is why we call Uranus, Neptune and Pluto ‘modern’ planets. However, we are interested in another division of planets.
There are ‘personal planets’, ‘social planets’ and ‘transpersonal planets’. We are particularly here interested in the first group and in one of the two prominent members, the Moon, which is one of the Luminaries. Personal planets are the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. These planets are extremely important to watch for in a natal chart.
Personal planets define you as a person of certain traits and qualities. These planets move fast and often change positions, which makes their influence highly individual. Other planets move slow and spend several years in one place, meaning that they affect more than one person, the whole generation or generations, in similar way.
The outcome in an individual horoscope, of course, depends on many factors.
The Luminaries, the Sun and the Moon are the brightest of planets. Yes, you heard well, these two are also counted as planets in astrology, although technically they are not planets.
The Sun represents one’s active energy, one’s focus, one’s ruling zodiac sign. Your native sign is where the Sun stands in your natal chart. We could say the Sun is the master of your horoscope.
It represents the essence of a being, one’s personality, potentials, general attitude towards life, the person’s Ego. The Moon represents everything behind this manifestation of personality. It stands for inner voices, intuition, instincts, emotions.
Without its influence, one cannot realize their potentials to the fullest. Let us now talk more about the Moon and horoscopes.
Moon and Horoscope
The Moon is the mirror of our soul. It represents our true, deep emotions and ourselves as a feeling being. It also stands for flexibility and for communication that leads to connection. The Moon has much to do with our attitude towards all sorts of relations with people.
It symbolizes family values, parenthood, especially motherhood, home and closeness to it.
In male horoscopes, the Moon represents the mother and the wife. It could also represent a part of this man’s personality, his connection with family, his attitude towards traditional family values and so on. In female horoscopes, the Moon represents the woman as a mother and a wife or her own mother.
It could also sometimes represent another influential female figure in someone’s horoscope.
In natal astrology, in personalized charts and horoscopes, the Moon represents our emotional self, our child within, our connection with the past. It symbolizes feminine energy, mental stability, intuitive thinking, deep imagination, mystery.
It rules the sign of Cancer, which is known as one of the most hardly recognizable and the most emotional signs.
The Moon is associated with the following types and personalities: queens and empresses, princesses, common folk, sailors, people who are constantly on the move, pedestrians, wanderers, couriers, travelers in general, mothers, widows. It is associated with the element of Water, the sea, fish, long journeys, rivers, swamps, water in general.
The place the Moon occupies in your natal chart represents impressions that build up your character. Some would say the Moon is even related to experiences and impressions from the past life.
The Moon represents our reactions to the world that surrounds us. It describes the formation of impressions we receive and the way we process and channel those impressions.
