Duality and Unity: Planets in Gemini
by Alan Oken
As our inner eye awakens, it sees with ever-increasing clarity the relationship between the visible and the invisible, and knows that these two are drawing ever closer together. —A.O.
Sun in Gemini:
The solar force and thus the sense of personal identity expresses in Gemini as a desire to experience life through constant variations in what one does and how one does it. There is a great need for intellectual stimulation that at its best is the constant pursuit of knowledge and the life skills that come with knowing. When negative, this orientation leads to dissipation, diffusion, and instability. There is a definite propensity to dualism: two relationships, two jobs, two sets of opinions, etc. Yet when under the direction of the coordinated and integrated mind, such dualism is holistic in nature, allowing the individual to multitask successfully. When it is not, Gemini is seen to scurry about trying to be in two (or more!) places simultaneously and not succeeding at all.

Planets in Scorpio Part 2: Mars, Venus, and Moon
By Deecoleworld, 2014
In Planets in Scorpio Part 1, Ascendant and Mercury, I talked about Ascendant/Rising and Mercury in the sign of Scorpio. In this hub, Planets in Scorpio Part 2: Mars, Venus and Moon, I will be talking about mars, Venus, and moon in Scorpio. Again this does not specifically refer to the sun sign in Scorpio (some similarities may apply however).
Mars in Scorpio
Your Mars is in Scorpio, in the planet of action, sexuality/sexual expression, and energy. Mars in Scorpio is a fairly decent position for Mars to be in. Remember that Mars rules the sign of Aries, and was (or is, depending on who you ask) the Continue reading
Planets in Scorpio Part 1: Ascendant, and Mercury
When you first meet someone what planet do you see? Do you see the sun sign, moon sign, ascendant sign, etc? It is tricky to say what personal planet someone first sees in a person. Even so, it’s fun to try and take a go at it.
As I repeated many many times in previous hubs, my theory pretty much goes like this:
When someone first meet you (and vice versa) they meet your ascendant sign. After a while once they get to talking with you they meet your Mercury and Venus signs concurrently. It is on this occasion you laugh, joke, and get to know each other more. After you both depart, deciding that you Continue reading

Pluto in the Houses
Pluto IN 1st HOUSE – Pluto in your 1st house, indicates that you have a powerful need to in some way re-mould your character at certain points in your life. Pluto represents the force of change and transformation, with this planet in the house of the personal self you will periodically need to clear your life of certain structures that you feel are limiting your growth, such as a bad relationship or job. If you do not recognise or express the energy of Pluto within yourself, you may unconsciously act in ways that provoke someone else into doing the job for you, so the other person breaks up the relationship, or your boss gives you the sack. In these cases you will see this as a crisis, until you are able to admit that this was what you needed, and secretly desired. Continue reading
2060 Chiron is a minor planet in the outer Solar System. Discovered in 1977 by Charles T. Kowal (precovery images have been found as far back as 1895), it was the first-known member of a new class of objects now known as centaurs, with an orbit between Saturn and Uranus.
Although it was initially called an asteroid and classified as a minor planet, it was later found to exhibit behavior typical of a comet. Today it is classified as both, and accordingly it is also known by the cometary designation 95P/Chiron. Continue reading
Planets in astrology
Planets in astrology have a meaning different from the modern astronomical understanding of what a planet is. Before the age of telescopes, the night sky was thought to consist of two very similar components: fixed stars, which remained motionless in relation to each other, and “wandering stars” (Ancient Greek/Coptic: ἀστέρες πλανῆται asteres planetai), which moved relative to the fixed stars over the course of the year.
To the Greeks this group comprised the five planets visible Continue reading
Mercury is the smallest and closest to the Sun of the eight planets in the Solar System, with an orbital period of about 88 Earth days. Seen from the Earth, it appears to move around its orbit in about 116 days, which is much faster than any other planet. This rapid motion may have led to it being named after the Roman deity Mercury, the fast-flying messenger to the gods.
Since Mercury has almost no atmosphere to retain heat, Mercury’s surface experiences the greatest temperature variation of all the planets, ranging from 100 K (−173 °C; −280 °F) at night to 700 K (427 °C; 800 °F) during the day. Mercury’s surface is heavily cratered and similar in appearance to Earth’s Moon, indicating that it has been geologically inactive for billions of years.
Mercury’s period of revolution around the Sun is 88 days. It therefore makes about 4.15 revolutions around the Sun in one Earth-year. Continue reading
The word zodiac comes from the Greek for “ring of animals”. It refers to the pathway along which the planets orbit in the heavens. This circular band is technically called the ecliptic and is divided into 12 sections known as the astrological signs. Most of the signs are named after animals, hence “zodiac”.
Aries (Ram) March 21 – April 20
Aries is symbolized by the horns of the Ram and represents the time of spring when the land is greening and the sap is rising. People ruled by this sign are assertive, impatient, open and direct.
