What do the Planets represent in Astrology?
Each planet has several different concepts, groups of people and areas that they govern and represent. In a Natal Birth Chart, each planet represents a different facet of our personality. The personal planets have the biggest affect on us as individuals, as they are the closest to Earth. The social planets are still important to consider, while the house position (eg. the 10th House) of the generational planets is more important in an individual Birth Chart, rather than the actual sign of the planet (eg. Uranus in Capricorn).
Predictive Astrology is used to produce "forecasts" for all kinds of events on a micro and macro scale. Predictions can be made for individuals, as well as World Events. Indeed, Astrologers have been discussing the monumental impact 2020 would have on us globally for many years in the lead up to this year. Predictive Astrology relies on the interpretation of the current transits of the planets and their signs to produce these forecasts.
