Pluto!!

Pluto is a dwarf planet discovered in 1930. In modern astrology, it is the coldest and furthest away from the sun. Well, aside from Eris. Surprisingly, Pluto has five moons. It takes 248 years for one orbit around the sun lasting in one sign for about 21 years depending if the planet is going direct or in the various stages of retrograde. This planet sometimes crosses Neptune’s orbit leading to it be close to the sun than Neptune at times.

Pluto is the Roman god of the underworld. He was saved from the belly of Saturn by his brother Jupiter. Though, after being saved, he was given the crap end of the stick being sent to rule in the underworld. He has a helmet and a bident and is known as a wealth god given most material riches are from under or in the earth. Pluto co-rules sign Scorpio with Mars and governs the 8th house. It only has a feminine expression and is related to the element water and a fixed modality. Pluto is about the power and extremes of intimacy, betrayal, and mutual wealth.

The concept of death with Pluto relates to inner work. Yes, Pluto brings extreme measures when you are may face true death concerning those close to you. But, it is in efforts to transform yourself first then have the strength and power to transform the world around you. The lesson of death and transformation can be seen when betrayal comes, or opposition arise.

Pluto can be related to Mars if you turn the outward force of Mars inward. For me, I can’t feel the supposed radiating power using off Plutonians unless I look them in the eyes. Some people governed by Pluto learn how to control their emotions, but there is a strong sense of ownership and possession when Plutonians desire something or someone. Learning how to transmute the energy is better than trying to control the energy. Focus all that force on bettering yourself and environment. You will get what you desire to an extreme one way or another because of the stubborn intensity of emotions.

The antithesis of Pluto is Venus, more so the feminine expression of Venus. Venus is about harmony, stability, comfort, values, and beauty all personal. Not caring what others think but keeping with an authentic self. Pluto is about control and melding with another for transformation. The idea of power and transformation is not one of stability or comfort.

Metaphysically, do not play with this Planet. If you want to experiment with Pluto, watch out. I’m telling you this from personal trial and error. Don’t. But there are those who will. Please proceed with caution. Have protection mundane and spiritual. Heed the warning when they come. Be prepared for soul-wrenching transformation. This is a dark planet. Do not play with Pluto. If you want to study Hades, write the glyph on a candle an concentrate on it. Study darker deities and to begin to understand what you are dealing with. Develop will and determination to be able to get through anything.

Neptune

Neptune is the eighth planet from the sun right behind Uranus (tehehehe). Neptune has 5 rings with 14 moons. Because of the color, it is named after the Roman sea god Neptune. This gas giant takes 165 years to orbit the sun lasting in one sign for about 14 years depending if it is going direct, or if it is going through the various stages of retrograde.

Neptune rules the 12th house,  co-rules the sign Pisces with Jupiter even when Pisces is the sole expression of Neptune. With water as the element for this planet, with a  mutable modality. Even though the god Neptune is male the planet is feminine given that the sign, house, and element attributed to it are all feminine Neptune is about illusions, glamour, it is elusive and cunning. Keep that in mind when you are dealing with Pisces most of the time the victim card is a cunning ploy. Very few Neptunian/Pisces/12th house people are truly gullible. If they listen to their intuituion they realize any games someone else is trying to play with them. Often times the seasoned Neptunian is five steps ahead. Do not underestimate them.

Neptune is a planet that governs the contemporary in a sense it is a generational planet like the rest of the modern planets Uranus and Pluto included. It regulates over the collective subconscious, and it is a planet closely related to the other side of the vail and the dead. Yes, I know it is more recognized that Pluto rules the dead. Though from experience, personal and professional, Neptune dominate people or those with strong 12th house placement and Neptune aspects encounter more of the other side than not. The difference in encounters of death between the two planets is from perspective. Neptune accepts death and the dead as natural and every day whereas Plutonic death is a catalyst for transformation. With Pluto, it is felt more harshly than not forcing the softer side of someone to have a mini death within in order to continue on. An example of Neptune dealing with the dead someone with Neptune in the 4th house may grow up near or across from cemeteries and are more inclined to have a mother or family who can see the other side. Whereas a Plutonic 4th house person would have to go through power struggles, violence, and symbolic death to survive their ordeals. When death happens Plutonically it is soul crushing. Though, think of it as something to make you durable.

Neptune dominant people are imaginative, creative, most of the time they are a bit psychic. They are very artistic, also can easily pick up makeup and glamour better than any other planetary dominant. They need their time alone to recharge and space to. There may be a tendency to desire to get lost through spirituality or substance abuse.

The opposing planet for Neptune is Mercury. The Neptune Mercury dynamic is of vagueness and precision respectively. Though both planets are about understanding the ever-changing world around them Neptune does so by recognizing the subconscious and emotions that are by nature incomprehensible. While Mercury gains understanding in its environment deducing topics outside of emotions in practical ways. For the feminine expression of Mercury what makes sense before should make sense again. Neptune moto would be what is is or what will be will be. Then flip a situation to benefit the Neptunian.

If you want to work with this planet metaphysically or magically, I would advise studying the ocean, learning about ocean deities. Study the gods Poseidon, Neptune, and Yemaya, learn sailor lore. a good day for Neptune is Friday just as it is for Venus. Learn about all forms of art, music, art, theater, etc. Understand the subconscious and metaphysics. I hope you the best on your journey.

Uranus

Uranus is a pale blue planet with a ring going from pole to pole around it. It is the seventh planet in the solar system. Surprisingly enough Uranus is visible to the naked eye, and it moves in an unusual pattern, on its side with a 98-degree tilt. It takes about 84 years to orbit the sun lasting in one sign for seven to eight years depending if the motion of the planet is direct, or in the various stages of retrograde.

Uranus is part of the modern planetary system there is no traditional day as there were for the first seven planets. It co-rules the 11th house with Saturn it is the energy that radically pushes to maintain survival. Though the push is not a firey force, it is a detach logical necessary to move forward. Also, there is only one zodiac sign under its rulership that is Aquarius. The elemental energy attributed to this oddball is air modality is fixed and it, so far, has a masculine expression.  Uranus in astrology is about sudden changes, originality, experimentation, pushing the boundaries, and governing the mass conscious mind.

Where ever this planet is in a natal chart will tell where that person will push for something outside of the social norms, can more easily be detached, and where ingenuity can be expressed. Those with Uranus as the lord of their chart will, in part, push social norms, have a pronounced quirk about them, have the potential of brilliance and quick mental faculties. Whenever Uranus is transiting a house or a planet in the natal chart, things will start to shake up a bit sudden breaks can happen, or sudden change.

Metaphysically this is a planet I would suggest you study more if you want to work with it. The outer planets work on broader scales and can become more than we can handle at times. This is a very revolutionary planet if you want to work with Uranus hold tight and hope you come out okay enough to continue on.

Saturn

Saturn is a fantastic planet. It is the last planet visible to the naked eye before the solar system gives way to darkness. Saturn weighs the least of all the worlds in the solar system, with 62 known moons, and beautiful rings. It takes Saturn about 29 years for this planet it orbits the Sun completing the zodiac wheel lasting in a sign for 2 1/2 depending on the motion of this planet. Meaning if Saturn is in the process of going into or out of retrograde, is retrograde, or direct.

Saturn rules two sings Capricorn the feminine side, and Aquarius the masculine side. With the sign rulership of Saturn, you can see how this planet is about learning and working within your boundaries to attain what you want in this world ( Capricorn), and pushing your limits, experimenting with the environment around you to gain more in life( Aquarius ). Saturn has two modes attributed to it, cardinal and fixed. Meaning Saturn is about starting, or taking responsibility, and maintaining the fruits of your efforts. The elements that go well with Saturn are Earth and Air showing how it is about stability and, in a detached way, progression. The houses Saturn rules are the 10th, challenging of reputation, social status, career, and legacy.  The 11th house is of hopes and wishes, gains, networking, and society. This planet is exalted in Libra and debilitated in Aries.

With Saturn in astrology, you have to research to understand what it is doing in a natal chart. Most believe this planet is about Restriction, boundaries, limits and responsibilities and nothing more. But, Saturn also represents the highest place in the natal chart, karma as in the result of your efforts and reaping what you sow, time, control and material prosperity. Saturn rules the physical world and is known as Alpha and Omega. This planet also has more than one symbol. The well known Rx is another Saturnian symbol. Saturn lends its energy to retrograde planets. It is the reason why you are going over and over again with lessons concerning those planets and is the reason why retrograde planets are so tricky to understand.  After your Saturn return, an entire topic on its own, the experiences of your retrograde planets becomes easier.

Unlike other planets, Saturn as two planets opposing it- the Sun and Moon. The Sun and Moon are personal, insular, representing the Spirit and soul, the ego and emotions. Saturn is the antithesis of that. It is about the harsh outer world pushing the boundaries of the ego ( seen in the Leo/Aquarius dynamic), as well as controlling and guarding your emotions and soul (seen within the relationship between Cancer and Capricorn).

Metaphysically Saturn Rules over Saturday and its metal is lead. Saturnian gods deals with reaping what you sow and harvesting, karma, time, stability, effort, and wisdom. Saturning gods are Cronos, Saturn, and Shani.

Jupiter!!

Jupiter is a gas giant behind the asteroid belt. It is the fifth planet from the sun taking one year to orbit around our central star with 79 moons we know of!  This planet is the largest in the known solar system. Jupiter is in a sign for about one year depending on the motion of this planet. Meaning if Jupiter is in the process of going into or out of retrograde, is retrograde, or direct. In turn, taking 12 years to complete the zodiac wheel.

Jupiter is about abundance, good or bad. This planet amplifies its placement. Because of the abundant energy, many see Jupiter as a planet of Fortune. Jupiter rules two signs Sagittarius, the masculine expression, and Pisces the feminine element of Jupiter. The houses natal to the Gas Giant are the 9th and the 12th houses. Both are two sides of the same coin when you look into the details of them. The only expression of Jupiter is mutable just as it is for Mercury. The Elements attributed to Jupiter are Fire and Water giving this planet a sense of spirituality.

Jupiter is a planet of optimism and opportunity. It can abundantly give to the max may time you can relate the abundant nature to audacity when it comes to getting what it wants. There is a need for this planet to say in motion, being mutable, not waiting for fortune but creating beneficence. There are other significances of Jupiter in astrology. This planet is known as the husband because it is a benefactor. In a woman’s it is the Husband, and in a Man’s chart, it is how he is as a husband or a long-term relationship. To understand this in a personal chart look at the aspects, sign placement, and house Jupiter holds. To know what is going on with the husband look at the transits aspecting the natal Jupiter.

The opposite Planet to Jupiter is Mercury. Both are about gaining understanding and knowledge. Though, they do it in opposing ways. Jupiter looks for more metaphysical, spiritual and emotional, form of comprehension in constant search for true be it positive or not using what it knows to get what it wants. While Mercury does the same through, logical and practical ways. Mercury tries to bend the truth according to its will using cunning. Jupiter is of mutable energy from higher dimensions. Mercury taps into both upper and lower realms applying high knowledge to everyday life.

Jupiter is the King of Gods. Within pagan religions, the God who is at the top or high point tends to be very Jupitanian A few Gods to name would be Thor, Jupiter, Zeus, and Changó. Because of Jupiter’s place among the traditional planets, Thursday is its day. The metal for Jupiter is tin, and the finger of Jupiter is the index finger.

Mars!

Mars in the 4th planet int he solar system. It is in front of the asteroid belt and after Earth and has two moons. It takes Mars 687 days to orbit the Sun. Mars stays in a sign about two months to at the most seven months depending on the motion of this planet. Meaning if Mars is in the process of going into or out of retrograde, retrograde, or direct.

Mars in astrology represents raw force and primal rage. This planet is pure energy. Mars rules two signs, Aries and Scorpio, and two houses the 1st and the 8th house. The modalities attributed to this planet are cardinal and fixed. Mars rules the physical body, the personality, and what it takes to survive in the world.  The main thing to stick Mars with is that it is hot (fire) and immovable (ice).

Mars is a planet that can retrograde because, traditionally, it rules a masculine (Aries) and a feminine (Scorpio) sign. The only planets that cannot retrograde are the traditional planets the Sun and Moon in astrology. The masculine and feminine side of Mars both have the common element of force and primal energy. The difference between them is the masculine aspect of Mars is about going head-on into situations making its mark and initiating things in the world and environment. The feminine element acknowledges the fiery impulse of mars but plans out and scheme ways to express that energy. Most of the time the feminine Mars energy could show through manipulating others emotions, body, or belongings to conquer and control subtly. The feminine aspect is about maintaining and constructing on that energy.

Many see in astrology see Mars as the planet of masculinity. This is true, but it is good to know that Hermes (Mercury) is also a god of manhood, just a cool fact. Anyway, Mars represents different roles in a woman’s chart versus a man’s. Mars for women is the representative of what she is sexually, or romantically, attracts her. Mars is not a long-term partner or the husband it is more so a boyfriend, a short fling, or a  one night stand. In a man’s chart, Mars is how he express masculinity. Both men and woman can express masculine or feminine traits if you want to understand, or act out your masculinity learn where Mars sits in your chart meaning the sign and house placements and learn about your Mars’ aspects.

People with strong Mars in their chart have to learn about standing up for themselves and creating their own life with the raw passion for independence. Mars gives Mars dominant people a muscular physique, reddish hair or face, dominant and fiery personality. But Martians must learn how to harness and control this energy to benefit them in the long run.

The opposite energy of Mars is Venus. Venus is about harmony and partnership where Mars is about independence and force. Mars is the solder and leader with Venus being the courtesan and a partner.  The balance of Venus and Mars is about establishing the wants and desires of the individual (Mars) and the partner (Venus).

Mars governs weapons, rage, martial arts, and energy to say the least. Mars rules the head The metal for the Red Planet is iron. The day for Mars is Tuesday. The Planets color is red.

Martian gods have war-like characteristics, bold personalities, are associated with weapons and iron.

A short list of Maritan gods: Mars, Ares, and Ogun.

Venus

Venus is the second planet in our solar system named after the Roman goddess of Love sensuality and beauty. Venus has an 8-year cycle creating a pentagram before it starts a new cycle. It is known as the morning and evening star. It takes 224.5 days to orbit the Sun staying in a sign about one to two months depending on the motion of this planet. Meaning if Venus is in the process of going into or out of retrograde, retrograde, or direct. Venus never travels far from the Sun in astrology it is one or two signs behind, in front of, or in the same sign as the Sun.

In astrology, Venus is about relationships, values, material, and sensuality. It rules Taurus and Libra Exalted in Pisces, Falls in Scorpio and Aries, and is debilitated in Virgo. Venus governs 2 signs Taurus the sign of stability and comfort and Libra the sign of relationships and harmony. Also, rules two houses the second house of personal value and material and the 7th house relationships and contracts. The elements attributed to Venus are earth-practical and air attributing logic to the planet Venus. Venus aspects and placements in a natal chart give a softer, feminine and attractive influence. For example, Venus-Pluto aspects don’t change the dominant and possessive nature of Pluto but Venus gives Pluto a softer feel. making Pluto seem less aggressive and domineering at first. As if the Venus is the bait because it is more attractive. Venus-Mars aspects make someone more passive and diplomatic in how they express Marian qualities like anger or sexual desires.

Venus behaves differently in a man’s chart than a woman’s chart. In a man’s chart, Venus is what the man desires in the opposite sex. In a woman’s chart, Venus is what the woman is or should embody to express her feminine self. If you want to express more of your feminity man or woman using astrology Look to Venus for the physical feminine expression.

Someone with strong Venus placements/aspects will have and strive to be very balanced in their expression, have an eye for art and beauty. They seem superficial. Their main objective it maintaining harmony in life and themselves.

Venus corresponds to Friday, the metal copper, and All goddesses that govern beauty, love, and money.
