The Planets in the Heavens

The planets and stars have always fascinated mankind. Throughout the ages, much study and collection of data has accumulated, creating the art/science of Astrology. This information can seem overwhelming! This description will target some of the main themes that recur in the study of astrology that actually play a dominant role in our day-to-day activities and events.

The planets and luminaries are “verbs” in our world. They imply action, lack of action or a state of being. The constellations, or “signs” describe the character of the action, inaction or state of being, and the “houses” indicate the facet of life or the place of the action, inaction or state of being is experienced or perceived.
