The principles represented by the planets in astrology are as follows:
Each planet expresses itself most fully in one (or sometimes two) signs and houses that are most similar to it in nature. That sign and house is said to be ruled by that planet. If you compare the description of the signs and houses with their rulers you will see how this works.
A note about the Moon Nodes
The Moon Nodes are often referred to as the Dragon’s head and tail; the dragon eternally attempts to catch up with and swallow its own tail, whereupon it would know completeness and unity. This is a most intriguing aspect of astrology and a little research would probably be enriching.
The keywords used in this brief outline give a far from complete insight into the way in which each element will manifest itself in an individual chart. Astrology is similar to the Tarot in that too literal a reading that relies heavily on conventional symbolic interpretations and keywords will blind the mind to the deeper meanings revealed by the soul. A clear understanding of principles is important however, and these should be expanded upon in the reader’s mind by intuition and research.
