Planets affect our personality in interesting ways …


All planets orbit the sun but they do so at different speeds and according to their distances. Some planets are slower than others, the farther they are from the sun, the slower they are. It is said that each planet affects different parts of your personality.

The Inner Planets:  Mars / Mercury / The Moon / The Sun / Venus

These planets affect habits and moods. They have the greatest impact  on your day-to-day life because they move so rapidly through the zodiac. 

The Outer Planets:  Jupiter /Neptune / Pluto / Saturn /Uranus

These planets change signs, approximately,  every one to fifteen years. They are the slowest  moving planets and shape the bigger trends in your life. It is believed that Pluto and Uranus shape entire generations due to their incredibly slow orbit. Each planet, inner and outer, is associated with a specific zodiac sign. Mellow Cancer is ruled by the moon, well-balanced Libra is ruled by Venus, for example.

About the Sun and Moon

It may seem a bit strange to you that we list the sun and moon as planets. We take into account that astrology works from the perspective of “we who inhabit the earth.” Like the other planets, the sun and moon teach us about our own individual place in the scheme of things.
