Since the dawn of civilization, we have been asking questions about our purpose in this universe we call our place. We are still not sure of why we are here in the first place.
What mysterious force created us and constituted us as thinking beings we are? Was it only nature? But then, how the nature begun?
If we answer to that, we go beyond and ask questions about how the whole universe begun?
Ancient civilizations believed answers to such grandiose questions might lie in the skies above, in stars, planets and constellations; in their movement and their positions, their vibration and energies. In ancient times, heavenly bodies were associated to divine forces.
There are still many alternative spiritual paths that base upon belief that some mysterious force is all-present and that it has to do with all objects and elements found in space.
Religious systems all have in common the idea that sacred, powerful divine forces come from heavens. Astrological paths are closely focused solely on starry sky and the effect of planets upon our life and existence. Astronomy, physics and other exact, officially recognized disciplines agree planets and the universe definitely affect the life on Earth.
All of this leads us to conclusion that planets definitely have something to do with our lives.
Astrology goes deep into this and deals with questions official scientific disciplines do not. This is also why astrology is not recognized as an official science, but an alternative, a pseudo science. Astrology tries to answer to questions on how planets affect our destiny. It claims planets play a major role in constituting one’s personality.
Astrological analyses could be done not only for individual human beings, but also for nations, countries, even plants and animals, according to some. You could analyze a past event, such as a foundation of a country, taken as the time of its astrological birth and see what stars have in plan. This is only an example.
People are generally mostly interested in what stars have to tell them about their own life, particularly their future. Do not mix things; astrology is not divination and foretelling. Astrology could give answers based upon your natal chart. These answers would most likely not be straightforward like: “This thing will happen at that point of your life.”
Having an insight in your birth chart reveals what your potentials are, are stars inclined towards a fortunate future in general, what sort of troubles you may expect, on what plan of your life and many more.
These answers could help you understand who you really are and why you are like that. It could help you understand what kind of people please you and where should you invest your energy.
Personal Planets – The Luminaries
As we have mentioned, planets are of vital importance in analyzing a birth chart. They are an essential element. Astrology claims planets determine who you are and define you as an individual, unique personality. They can reveal your psychological profile, see what you are good at and what you are not. There are three classes of planets constituting a birth chart.
These are planets of the Solar system, in Western astrology, including the Sun and the Moon, which we are particularly interested in here. As you know, the Sun is a star and the Moon is a satellite, but these bright heavenly bodies are astrologically always enlisted with planets. These two are the Luminaries, meaning the bright ones.
The Luminaries are the most important of the first class of planets, which are ‘personal planets’. Personal planets include the Sun, the Moon, mercury, Venus and Mars. These planets move fast and change positions in an astrological chart very often.
They change places, houses and zodiac signs quite quickly, which makes their influence unique in each of birth charts.
Bright heavenly bodies, the Luminaries are the first and the most important of this group.
The Sun is your active self, your Ego, everything who you are and how you as a person are manifested in reality, to say so. It is the planet that defines your native zodiac sign. If the Sun in your natal chart is in Scorpio, then you are a Scorpio, to be precise.
The Moon is the layer behind this one. It represents your emotional, inner self, your connection with the world on a more subtle, mysterious, sub-conscious level. In following paragraphs, we will talk more about it. Personal planets in total define your personality traits, temperament and character.
Each gives you special qualities and features that make you unique.
Other planets are ‘social’ and ‘transpersonal planets’. They move slower and they stay for years in one place. Their transits are slow, especially those of the furthest ones. This means that they affect more generations and have greater impact on people as a collective.
However, they are also important to look for in a natal chart, because they create relations with other ones.
Moon and Horoscope
Why is the Moon so important when it comes to analyzing a birth chart? The Moon greatly affects our own planet Earth and the life on it. The Moon affects all waters on Earth and so we consider it the planet of the Water, in spiritual sense.
The element of the Water is the essence of our emotional selves and so the Moon is closely related to our emotions. Some astrologers call the Moon ‘the second light’.
The Moon is associated with fertility and motherhood; before a child is born, it dwells in water, so that is where the association also comes from. The Moon symbolizes the figure of a mother, the connection with the mother.
It is interesting that the Moon in a male horoscope usually represents the mother, before a native gets married. After that, the Moon represents his wife.
The Moon also represents one’s emotional self, the way we feel the world around. The Moon is deeply associated with impressions and with the past. It means impressions of the past have made us who we are.
The Moon is a feminine principle in any horoscope. It is also a symbol of patriotism, closeness with our family and dear people.
The Moon represents our sub-consciousness, our moods and our inner voice. If we observe its relation with the Sun, it is as if we observe our emotional self as connected with our rational self. The one cannot exist with the other.
The place the Moon occupies in a natal chart is of vital importance for the personality of the individual in question.
Let us find out what kind of personalities are those with the Moon in Scorpio.
