Astrology for Magicians and Metaphysicists - Lesson 2

The Planets

As you have learned previously, there are four main factors to be considered when you interpret a birth chart or when you set up an astrological structure for magical purposes. These factors are: the planets, the zodiacal signs, the mundane houses, and the aspects.

The planets represent functions, human inclinations, motivations, and tendencies. The sign in which a planet is located indicates the character of the planetary function, or how it operates. The aspects between planets tell about the mutual interaction of their functions, whether harmonic, disharmonic, strong or weak. Finally, the houses show the fields of life experience where the planetary and zodiacal forces most likely manifest.

Since the planets represent human inclinations and motivations, it will be useful to gain an understanding of the planetary principles before we go on to describe the signs and houses.

An astrological interpretation is a translation from chart structures into statements that we make with our language. The easiest way to do this translation is the method of key words. With this method we can derive sentences that describe the individual directly from his or her chart.

The key word method is very effective, provided that you know your key words. With practice you can use these key words as trigger that help you expand on the statements that you make in your astrological interpretation.

It is essential that you learn your key words well. Without knowledge of the various elements of astrology, i.e., the planets, signs, houses, etc., you cannot properly interpret astrological charts, let alone design charts for specific purposes in your work of astrological magic.

With knowledge of your key words the interpretation of a chart or the developing of an astrological trend structure for magical purposes compares very much to the translating of one language into another.

The basic key words for the planets

Planet Key word for its inclination and motivation
Sun to integrate, to express, to project 
Moon to respond, to react, to regulate 
Mercury to communicate, to concentrate, to transmit 
Venus to relate, to unite, to connect 
Mars to initiate, to activate, to move
Jupiter to expand, to mature, to experience
Saturn to limit, to control, to discipline 
Uranus to deviate, to invent, to reform 
Neptune to refine, to detect, to transcend 
Pluto to eliminate, to transform, to regenerate

The zodiacal sign in which a planet is located reveals the manner in which the person brings forth the inclination and motivation of the planet. The mundane house in which the planet is found describes the sphere of life upon which the person concentrates the inclination and motivation of the planet. The aspects between the planets show special modifications that will effect the actual efforts.

In the following, you find a more detailed description of the planets. It is essential that you study it carefully.

Sun

Key Word Extensions

To integrate -- to make into a whole by bringing all parts together
To express -- to make known to the world

To project -- to thrust outward and forward into the world

Psychological Implications

Everyone feels strong motivations to become a whole person, to let others know of his existence, and to become a significant part of his environment. The Sun symbolizes one's motivations to accomplish these three goals.

Physiological Associations

The human heart has a close relationship with the Sun, since it is both the heart and the Sun that control the living organism. Further, the delicate network of veins and arteries circulate that which is distributed by the heart; hence, the circulatory system has a really meaningful correspondence to the Sun. Difficult aspects to the Sun point toward susceptibility to afflictions of these parts of the body. Note that these parts are the sustainers of life.

Concomitant Relations

There are relationships between the Sun and vitality, determination, the masculine principle, dignity, self reliance, magnanimity, the man, and the father.

Moon

Key Word Extensions

To respond -- to make a reply through the emotions
To react -- to undergo a change through the emotions

To regulate -- to control or to adjust into rhythmic function

Psychological Implications

Everyone has an inclination to make his emotions known, to effect revision of the emotions, and to conform to cyclic actions. The Moon, as controller of the rise and fall of the tide, is the indicator of one's instinctive behavior in response to these three urges.

Physiological Associations

The Moon has a close association with the stomach, the breasts, the lymphatic system, the pancreas, the ovaries, and the sympathetic nervous system. Difficult aspects to the Moon point toward a susceptibility to afflictions of these parts of the body. Note that these parts are containers for and controllers of bodily functions.

Concomitant Relations

There are relationships between the Moon and instinct, emotions, memory, protectiveness, domesticity, patriotism, and mother.

To concentrate -- to direct thoughts toward a common center

To transmit -- to pass along from one person or place to another

Psychological Implications

Physiological Associations

Mercury has a very close correspondence to the respiratory system, the sensory organs, the nervous system, the thyroid gland, and the brain in general. Difficult aspects to Mercury point toward a susceptibility to afflictions of these parts of the body. Note that these parts are for the communication tracts of the body.

Physiological Associations

Difficult aspects to this planet point toward a susceptibility to sudden and unexpected emotional breakdowns, cramps, hysteria, and all forms of paralysis. Note that the nervous system is also deeply involved in the psychological urges associated with this planet.

Concomitant Relations

Uranus has a relationship to originality, independence, eccentricity, inventors, aerial matters, and unusual people.

To refine -- to cultivate insights beyond the level of consciousness
To detect -- to ferret out the significance of the abstract

To transform -- to convert from one status to an entirely different one

To regenerate -- to produce anew from the ruins of the original

Physiological Associations

Pluto has a close correspondence to cell formation, the system of reproduction, and the tracts of secretion. Difficult aspects to this planet point toward a susceptibility to afflictions of these parts of the body. Note that the functions of these parts relate pertinently to the physiological implications.

Concomitant Relations

Pluto has a close relationship to new beginnings, those who work below the surface of the Earth, group power, death, refuse, and the underworld.

After you have carefully studied these key words and the symbolic associations of each of the planets, review these principles often and systematically. Strive to establish firmly in your mind the planetary principles so that you can, as your study progresses, expand the symbolic representation to encompass all matters that properly belong with each planet, including the magical ones.

For example, you should realize that Mercury is associated with all matters of communication, including the abilities to reason and to express one's thoughts. Thus, this planet is logically connected with the media for communication. It is the key word extensions that suggest to you the vastness of the associations. Later, you will see how reasonably these planetary principles take on significant form and reveal through the birth chart both the disposition and the indisposition of the person concerned.

Finally, you should become familiar with the various tables of planets, signs, houses, etc., so that you will begin to use the symbols and review the key words.
