Sun is your personality. It’s who you are as a person. Your spirit. Your vitality. What makes you feel fulfilled on a personal level.
Your Ascendant is what others see you as, it’s a mask to the outside world, who you are in social situations. How you project yourself out to others.
Moon represents your emotions. It is your soul. The way you nurture and need to be nurtured. How you filter information internally in regards to your immediate reactions and feelings.
Venus represents how you love. It is what you find beautiful and attractive. What excites your spirit and soothes your soul. How you love and how you recognize and feel love. It is also our divine feminine energy.
Mars is the warrior planet and therefor rules dominance. It is our divine masculine energy. It rules anger and physical reactions. It is how we take action, what makes us take action, and what stirs us. What we find desiring and sexually pleasing.
Pluto is the planet of death and regeneration. It throws constant trials our way in order to teach us lessons. It is the planet of destruction in order to make room for creation. It is a highly internal, primal, and intense energy.
Jupiter is our ‘bigger picture’ of the world. It rules optimism and the future. It is expansive and all inclusive. It’s bursting with excitement, joy, and hope. It rules justice and truth.
Uranus is the trickster planet and likes to throw a wrench in our plans. It is the eccentric genius. It shows us where we differ from the crowd, where we stand independent, and where we get sparks of insight and inspiration for positive progression.
Saturn is the harsh reality- it’s every day life. It’s where we must put in time in order to see results. It’s the tangible world, the daily routine, the strict rules. It restricts. It sets boundaries. It lays down the law.
Neptune is very elusive, ruling over dreams and escapism. It has domain over drugs, fantasy, undercurrents of life, the collective unconscious. It is everything yet it is nothing. It casts a fog wherever it goes. It shows illusions and personal delusions and things that may or may not truly be there.
