Attributes of the planets were once very well-known and accepted that they crept into our language. Webster’s New World Dictionary of the American Language describes a Saturnine individual as one who is sluggish, depressing, morose, grave and taciturn–“born under the supposed influence of the planet Saturn.” A Mercurial person is referred to as having qualities related to the god Mercury or supposedly affected by the planet Mercury–eloquent, clever, shrewd, or having qualities suggestive of the metal mercury: quick, quick-witted, volatile, changeable, fickle. The dictionary also defines the Jovial type (ruled by Jupiter), the venial or venereal sin (associated with Venus), and also the lunatic (impacted by the Moon). Let’s look at brief descriptions of the planetary types. Whole books have been written about each of them, so consult them if you believe a need to flesh out your understanding.
The Solar type: (Ruled through the Sun or perhaps the sign Leo) This somewhat regal individual features a strong need to shine, to stand in bold relief, and quite often does that. All of the self words are emphasized: self-expression, self-confidence or self-consciousness, self-development, self-obsession, and even selfishness. At worst, the person can have a big ego and an insatiable need to be noticed, even the core of attention.
The Lunar type: (Ruled from the Moon or perhaps the Sign Cancer) This can be someone who expends much energy tending to Uranian Astrology. Such as nurturing, food, the house, security, females and women’s needs, family, as well as the emotions. The past and group of origin figure strongly within the person’s behavior, habits, and emotional issues and they are often carried into adult life.
The Mercurial type: (Ruled by Mercury or even the signs Gemini or Virgo) Here is a natural communicator who would prosper to earn an income using those skills. Otherwise the vitality is squandered on the phone, the Internet, or in incessant chatter. These people are restless, changeable, and incurably curious. They don’t tolerate boredom well. These are cerebral and also intellectual, and often have a keen sense of humor.
The Venusian type: (Ruled by Venus or even the signs Libra or Taurus) On their behalf, relationships are paramount, and they feel unfulfilled without having a partner. Romantic, charming, often attractive if overly focused on appearance, they hunger to get a steady dose of affection and warmth from those around them. Considerate, caring individuals, they often vacillate on decisions because they wish to please everyone while keeping the peace. They could be too other-directed and so lack the drive to achieve things for his or her own sake.
The Martial type: (Ruled by Mars or perhaps the sign Aries) These folks are action-oriented, often rashly leaping to behave before careful thought or planning. They are generally considered as leaders simply because they have abundant energy, drive, zeal, and sureness with regards to their aims. They could be aggressive, hot-headed or competitive and lack patience with slower, less certain folks. Easily irritated, however the sign and facets of Mars determine how readily they show anger and how it really is expressed.
The Jovial type: (Ruled by Jupiter or even the sign Sagittarius)This type seeks techniques to the major questions of life. Because quest, they tend to be perpetual scholars, whether in formal schooling or self-taught. When they find an answer they love, they aren’t shy about carrying the term enthusiastically to others. Thus they are often formal or informal teachers, preachers, or pr people. They may be conventional, moralistic, and preachy, but generous, with a good, though convoluted humorousness. Optimistic naturally, they seek to uplift and encourage others and to find lessons in every single trial.
The Saturnine type: (Ruled by Saturn or perhaps the sign Capricorn)These folks at the beginning of life form strong goals and devote a lot of the accessible time for you to fulfilling them. Serious, focused, reliable, dutiful, responsible, and cutndc beyond their years, they can also be somber perfectionists or depressed, anxious workaholics, specially when stymied in accomplishing their lofty aims. The older they get as well as the more of their set goals they fulfill, the better they grow mellow and cut themselves some slack. They could become the elders in the tribe, with valuable working experience to move along.
The Uranian type: (Ruled by Uranus or perhaps the sign Aquarius)These individualists–one could even say characters–abound in eccentricities that may either endear or drive others in the wall. They could rebel when society exerts too much pressure to conform to rules who go against their grain. Often advanced in ideas, supportive of social causes, or brilliantly inventive, these folks will often be avant guard, seldom mainstream, though they are able to start fads. Their beleaguered parents somehow survive a stormy adolescence, when authority is perpetually questioned. They could be contrary and often discard a workable system simply as it is passé.
