In Astrology, heavenly bodies i.e. planets, are used. These planets control the flow of energy and determine the dimensions of experience. 9 such planets are used and they are arranged in the proper order of their speed through the Zodiac as follows: the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu. They are used because of their proximity, the influence on earth, size, and also including their effect on human, animal, minerals, and vegetables.
The most useful planets are Jupiter and Venus. Jupiter is also known as the “the greater fortune” and Venus as “the lesser fortune”. The Sun and the Moon are also known to have a pretty good influence.
It is because these planets are considered helpful when they are seen at a better aspect with other planets, however, baleful when inspected the other way around.
Planets are not evil or bad in nature. In fact, all planets and all the signs are good. It all depends on how we humans react to it, according to our level of development. Our responses may be good or adverse depends on how we judge it.
These heavenly bodies happen to be very important ones. They represent the most sensitive side of us human beings.
