The planets inside the orbit of Uranus, that is Saturn inward to the Sun are the traditional
7 lights and planets put into a horoscope. These build the individuality and the personality.
The 3 outer [solar system] planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, expand the
human being from 'man' to 'superman'. One might look at the 7 inner planets as
the person, and the 3 outer planets as the 'expanded enviroment' and the aspects
between the two as one's place in the world, how one relates to the masses.
Basic keywords to the 3 outer planets are: the awakener, the sensitizer and the regenerator for
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto respectively.
Uranus is primarily a connector to the greater life
through awakening to intuition and a 'radar' like sensitivity to etheric currents.
disolves or washes away a barrier to make one more empathetic, psychic, or inspirational.
rebuilds the sense of identity with spirit which was lost during the 'fall of mankind'.
outer planets have very slow orbits, they basically mark 'generations' of
attitude and struggle
with issues. Uranus takes about 7 years to transit a sign, Neptune 14 years
to transit a sign
and while Pluto is quite variable it takes about 21 years on average to
transit a sign. Those people who
have same outer planet placements will be in your 'age group' and you will
share long term issues even
tho as individuals you may be on opposite sides of the generational
The outer planets symbolize where we contact the masses of humanity rather
Where and from what you find your greatest sense of power and motivation. Long term sense of
what you are.
Instinctive feeling, habits and reactions. Things best remembered or imagined.
What is most easily observed and communicated. Mercury is the messenger of the 'Gods', the
connection between the senses and inner or higher person.
The sense of appreciation, what things and people are 'worth'.
The focus of initiative, the sense of self worth.
The force which expands ones consciousness. Optimism, good luck, abstract ideas of God,
philosophy, law and medicine come under Jupiter.
Saturn focuses an awareness of boundaries and position. Where one is in society, thus
reputation, honor, the need to overcome.
Max Heindel says that Uranus is the higher octave of Venus, giving a sense of connectedness
which we identify as intuition both in science and art. Also a refined love which we call
brotherhood of mankind.
Max Heindel says Neptune is the octave of Mercury giving a trancendent sense of thinking.
Uranian intuition 'knows' by an inner knowing but does not know how a thing is known, but
Neptunian intuition 'knows' by an inner knowing which can identify the steps of logic needed to
prove and intellectially know. However, it arrives at its insights, like Uranus, with lightening
speed without need to laboriously reason matters out. Neptunian love unites one with all
life even beyound human brotherhood.
Pluto gives a greater sense of individuality and spiritual power and is often thought of as an octave
of Mars. Pluto impells some deep soul capacity to be brought out and refined.
Sign gyphs are made of abstract symbols to represent desires.
Planetary symbols are made of
three items: the circle of spirit, the half circle of soul (or feeling), and the cross of matter.
The circle of spirit representing the spiritual mind.
The dot in the center of the Sun may be
thought of as the focal point of spiritual awareness or expression.
Where the Sun is in the horoscope you seek to shine, be recognized and express
Two half circles of 'soul' representing feeling response leading to nuture of others. Memory of
events, thinking based on feeling or memory, imagination -the making of
images based on memory.
Where the Moon is you are emotionally stimulated, feel in contact with your
family and the public, find a key to what you remember best. (Note also Mercury)
The circle of spirit suspended between the cross of the 5 senses and the soul
of memory or receptivity to higher ideas coming from spiritual mind.
Where Mercury is you focus the mind most easily and have both the keenest
observation [this impressing the memory] and best communication.
Circle of spirit above the cross of matter, a refined appreciation of matter,
that is harmony, beauty and worth.
Where Venus is you find a sense of values as well as valuables.
The cross of matter above the circle of spirit. The cross is drawn leaning over and
sharpened showing the effect of past evolution upon our self awareness and
willingness to live by tempering our selfish desires. The small self (personality)
or matter exalted over the individuality or principle.
Where Mars is you fight or at least assert yourself most strongly, this is
where you like to begin things.
The half circle of soul above the cross of matter showing 'higher thought'
including abstract thinking, subtile feeling, faith and optimism. The perception
Jupiter is where we recognize and find opportunity, where our mind and feelings
are expanded, where spiritual impulse is fulfilled.
Cross of matter above the half circle of soul, where material life dominates
feeling. Neccessity and need to fulfill are Saturn experiences.
Where Saturn is we find our greatest challenge (typically) and recognition of
our self worth in terms of how we relate to others.
Two half circles of soul crossing the limbs of the cross of matter which is placed
above the circle of spirit. Here the 'radar' screens are turned to both the
past and future, the etheric and mental impressions by raising the vibrational
level of the human body. Uranus is magnetic, freedom loving, lightening like
Where Uranus is we expect freedom and will accept nothing less than origanality and
freedom at least in the long run.
The half circle of soul turned upward to higher dimentions and crossing the
upper staff of the cross indicating that the vibrational level of the human
body is again raised by Neptune. Neptune as a planet is said to be from 'out of our solar
system' and it symbolizes information that comes from without of our soul system through
information as might come by clairvoyance, idealism or prophetic dreams.
Where Neptune is we are at our most sensitive and inspirational
as well as where we are most likely to be deceived by self or others.
The three components, circle of spirit, half circle of soul and the cross of
matter are again present as they are in Mercury but arranged differently.
Mercury is the messenger of the Gods, that is the intermediate senses which
carry information from the senses to the spirit within. Pluto shows the
spirit within the soul above the cross of matter indicating the perfected
'mankind' which results from regeneration. Pluto marks the spot where spirit
goes into limitation, the underworld, in order to be released into full
power and growth.
Pluto marks the spot where we are forced to release a spiritual power or
understanding. Reform of some type is called for by Plutonian energy.
