The Planets as Personal Drivers

When considering your own personal astrology and interpreting your own natal chart, the planets can be thought of as your personal drivers – the tools that you have been given to: navigate through this life, maximize your Divine potential, and evolve.

When you were born, each planet occupied a particular realm in the heavens and reflected a certain aspect of the Divine potential. In other words, they each were in a particular zodiac sign on the day and time of your birth. That zodiac sign colors their expression and gives clues to both your natural talents and your challenges.

The common planetary points we study in Astrology are:

SUNYour drive to shine
MOONYour drive to meet your internal needs
MERCURYYour drive to communicate and your drive to learn
VENUSYour drive to relate, to connect with others, and to invest in what you love
MARSYour drive to assert, to act, to conquer, and to go after what you want
JUPITERYour drive to expand and to understand
SATURNYour drive to build, to structure, and to accomplish
URANUSYour drive to reform and to rebel
NEPTUNEYour drive to escape; Your drive to merge with your God/Goddess/the Universe/All That Is
PLUTOYour drive to transform;; Your drive to control
CHIRONYour drive to heal and be healed
