The Personal Planets
The Personal planets represent the basic components of the human personality. They symbolize the psychological urges that all of us share, and it is the various combinations of these planetary energies that produce our individuality. We each experience life in a way that is both specific to and the result of our unique genetic and environmental circumstances, but the will to survive, the need to respond, to think, to love and to act upon our desires is basic to every one of us. We are all imbued with these elemental drives, and the understanding of these planets according to their sign, house placement, and aspects to each other reveals the way our personalities are wired.
