We Consider Each
Planet in Each Sign
A
ny single indication, whether shown by planetary position
in a sign, by aspect, or by house position, may be made
nonoperative by some other factor in the chart of birth which
more strongly favors opposite tendencies. We may rightly say,
for instance, that a prominent and afflicted Saturn tends toward
fear and anxiety. But if at the same time Mars, the planet of
reckless daring, and the Sun, the planet of cool courage, are still
more powerfully located in the chart, the individual will not
exhibit fear and anxiety. The principle of checks and balances
is always operative in astrology, and a correct appraisal can
only be made by weighing each factor as it is accentuated or
counteracted by various other factors.
The position of a planet in a given zodiacal sign is only
one of many factors that must be considered in the appraisal
of character trends. Such a position does reveal certain fun-
damental desires of the thought-cells whose activities are
largely responsible for the thoughts and behavior charac-
teristic of that planet. But it does not reveal in what manner
these desires have been given fortunate or unfortunate
trends as indicated by the aspects, how much power they
possess as indicated by house position and aspects, nor with
what special departments of life they are chiefly concerned
as revealed by the houses the planet rules.
We may be sure, because the Sun maps the least changeable
group of thought-cells, that deep within the individual are
characteristics indicated by his sun-sign. But to express through
the personality these must work through the rising sign, and to
give a mental viewpoint they must co-operate with the moon-
sign. Furthermore, some particular planet may be so power-
background image
fully located and aspected in the birth chart that its thought-cells
are thus shown to dominate most of the thoughts and actions.
Nevertheless, each planet maps thought-cells which strive
for a particular type of thinking, a particular type of behavior,
and to bring a particular type of event into the life. And the sign
the planet is in shows the general attitude which these thought-
cells have and try to express. While in what follows only the
key phrase of that attitude is given, the details are to be found
in the more complete explanations of the influence of the sign
which is given relative to the sun-sign.
The most important thing for the beginner always to re-
member is that while the aspects show the harmony or discord
at birth of the thought-cells mapped by a given planet, and
therefore the general birth chart trend toward fortune or mis-
fortune relative to the things they influence, this is readily
subject to change by proper precautionary actions after birth. A
planet, according to its position in the chart and the number
and power of the aspects it receives, maps a given volume of
thought-cell energy of a certain type. This energy may express
through the destructive channels characteristic of the planet, or
through constructive channels characteristic of the planet. The
type of thought-cell activity cannot be changed but, as amply
proved by the case histories cited in When And What Events Will
Happen,
!
it is not too difficult to divert the destructive thought-
cell activity mapped by an afflicted planet into the constructive
thought-cell activity of the type characteristic of the same
planet. By thus training the energy to find expression in bene-
ficial channels, its power is lessened to bring misfortune, and
the life is improved in its fortune relative to the matters over
which the planet has an influence.
To show the individual how to avoid the destructive expres-
sion of thought-cell energy by deliberately cultivating its con-
structive expression, in considering each planet in each sign
both the planet's general destructive trend and its general
constructive trend when in each sign will be mentioned. To
ascertain the sign occupied by each planet on a given date an
ephemeris for that year must be procured. The most economical
method is to purchase the Astrologer's Ephemerides (AP Ephe-
merides), which may be had in convenient volumes each con-
taining all positions each day for ten years. These cover the

MOON
Mental processes are of two kinds. In the type ruled by Mer-
cury, cerebral processes resort to careful reasoning, classified
observation, and the formulation of words and sentences. And
to get ideas across to others, such words and sentences are
essential. Yet the mental attitude as a whole, and the mental
capacity, are not chiefly due to such cerebral processes. Instead,
they arise mostly from the unconscious mind and from the
impressions received from environment which have not thus
been carefully pigeon-holed. The feelings about certain things,
the unreasoned mental processes, the hunches, intuitions and
capacities for absorbing certain kinds of information which,
rather than the expression of opinions thus formed through
words and sentences, chiefly constitute the mentality, and are
expressions of the thought-cells mapped by the Moon.
These thought-cells which so powerfully influence the men-
tality have been organized by experiences in lower life-forms with
family and the rearing of offspring. They govern the negative,
low-frequency energies of the electromagnetic body. Their degree
of activity, and their harmony, are important in determining the
strength of the physical constitution and therefore the health. As
they are the most receptive of all to impressions from environ-
ment, it becomes easier to receive such impressions through the
avenues indicated by the sign and aspects of the Moon.
Because their chief expression relates to family life they are
called DOMESTIC thought-cells. Aspects to the Moon affect the
mental attitude, everyday affairs, and relations with the female
sex and the common people. To the extent the thought-cells
mapped by the Moon are active is the life influenced by
thoughts of domestic life, women, the offspring, the weak and
helpless, or by music.
When the Moon is prominent in the birth-chart it denotes
much curiosity and changing moods, and the individual likes
to be before the public or to mix with the masses.
When prominent and afflicted, there is a tendency toward
INCONSTANCY. Therefore the individual with such a chart
We Consider Each Planet in Each Sign

should as early as possible realize that to be favorably known
by the public he must not change his mind too often, and must
cultivate the power to persist in some one endeavor until he
has exceptional ability. The tendency to instability should be
channeled into ADAPTABILITY.
Moon in Aries--With the Domestic thought-cells expressing from
the I Am attitude, the mind should pioneer and seek constructive
leadership rather than too forceful assertion of opinions.
Moon in Taurus--With the Domestic thought-cells expressing
from the I Have attitude, the mind should seek spiritual knowl-
edge rather than become absorbed in acquiring material pos-

from the I Think attitude, the mind should seek complete
mastery of some one subject rather than a smattering of infor-
mation about many things.

from the I Feel attitude, the mind should seek to explain its
thoughts to others rather than be content with absorbing
knowledge.
Moon in Leo--With the Domestic thought-cells expressing from
the I Will attitude, the mind should seek to gain esteem through
kindness rather than through display and domination.
Moon in Virgo--With the Domestic thought-cells expressing
from the I Analyze attitude, the mind should seek worthy
service rather than acid criticism.
Moon in Libra--With the Domestic thought-cells expressing
from the I Balance attitude, the mind should seek beauty and
artistic creation rather than ease and luxury.
Moon in Scorpio--With the Domestic thought-cells expressing
from the I Desire attitude, the mind should seek tasks which
are helpful to society rather than the destruction of enemies.

Moon in Pisces--With the Domestic thought-cells expressing

will be well rather than dissipating its energy in worry.
ASCENDANT
The sign occupied by the Ascendant can be determined only
by erecting the horoscope. This requires simple calculations
which are easily made by anyone who will follow the rules
set forth in Part One, Beginner's Horoscope Maker. The Ascen-
dant is simply the sign and degree on the eastern horizon.
While its influence cannot be appraised for a given chart until
that chart has been erected, in importance it is exceeded only
by the positions of the Sun and Moon. The Sun rules the
individuality, the Moon rules the mentality, and the Ascen-
dant rules the personality.
In many respects this ascending degree acts as does a
planet. Aspects, either in the birth-chart or by progression,
involving it are as important as if it were a planet. In reality
it maps a heavy line running across the astral body, which
can be seen clairvoyantly. This is not merely an astral line,
but a line of electromagnetic energy also through which
the whole astral body is grounded. Whatever energy the
individual has that reaches the outside world through
personal contact and the electromagnetic forces is power-
fully influenced by the active group of thought-cells
mapped by the Ascendant.

MERCURY
The electrical currents which carry messages over the nerves,
and all cerebral processes, including perception and compari-
son, are ruled by Mercury; and all expression of thought in
speech and writing are expressions of the thought-cells
mapped by Mercury.
These thought-cells which so powerfully influence the in-
tellectual ability, the intellectual interests and the habitual
methods of objective thinking, have been organized in lower
forms of life through learning to remember and recognize
enemies, palatable foods, and suitable localities for shelter.
Because their chief expression relates to the intellectual life they
are called INTELLECTUAL thought-cells. Aspects to Mercury
affect the mental interests, the facility and accuracy of expres-
sion, and the type of cerebral activity. To the extent the thought-
cells mapped by Mercury are active is the life influenced by
thoughts about time, written or verbal expression, calculation,
travel, the recognition of size, weight, form and color, or the
solution of perplexities.
When Mercury is prominent in the birth-chart it denotes
one who is mentally active, capable of taking an education, of
functioning on the intellectual level, and of learning new tasks
readily. He is at his best where he can attain his ends by writing,
talking or travel.

ing from the I Am attitude, the speech should be interesting and
clever rather than impulsive and antagonistic.

pressing from the I Think attitude, the speech should be based
on valuable information rather than merely loquacious.

from the I Feel attitude, the speech should be free and poetic rather
than repressed through sensitiveness to the opinions of others.
Mercury in Leo--With the Intellectual thought-cells expressing
from the I Will attitude, the speech should be idealistic and
sympathetic rather than dominating.
Mercury in Virgo--With the Intellectual thought-cells express-
ing from the I Analyze attitude, the speech should be persua-
sive and constructive rather than sharp and critical.
Mercury in Libra--With the Intellectual thought-cells expressing
from the I Balance attitude, the speech should be just and refined
rather than merely agreeing with the views of present company.
Mercury in Scorpio--With the intellectual thought-cells express-

and helpful rather than caustic and stinging.
Mercury in Sagittarius--With the Intellectual thought-cells ex-

VENUS
The thyroid secretions and those of the gonads respond to
Venus; and mating, companionship, affection and love are
expressions of the thought-cells mapped by this planet.
These thought-cells which so powerfully influence all
phases of social activity have been organized in lower forms
of life through experiences with companionship and mat-
ing. Because their chief expression relates to the social life
they are called SOCIAL thought-cells. Aspects to Venus
affect the emotions, the social relations and the artistic
appreciation. To the extent the thought-cells mapped by
Venus are active is the life influenced by thoughts of affec-
tion, friendship, beauty, art, mirth, conjugality, or inhabi-
tiveness.
When Venus is prominent in the birth-chart it denotes
one who is fastidious and who loves grace, music and the
artistic. Such a person, to be at his best, needs social expres-
sion. Companionship is essential. He is unfitted for a life of
solitude. Instead of seeking hard and heavy work, he does
better where artistic ability or charm of manner is an asset.
When prominent and afflicted, there is a tendency to-
ward PLIANCY. He is entirely too eager to please others and
to find the line of least resistance. The earlier he learns that
he more often pleases when he asserts strength of character,
the more certain he is of finding satisfactory expression for
his AFFECTION.

MARS
The secretions of the adrenal glands and those of the gonads
respond to Mars; and construction, destruction, combat and sex
are expressions of the thought-cells mapped by this planet.
These thought-cells which so powerfully influence con-
structive and destructive activity have been organized in
lower forms of life through experiences with, fighting, sex
and the acquisition of food. Because their chief expression
relates to attacking obstacles they are called the AGGRES-
SIVE thought-cells. Aspects to Mars bring strife, haste and
increased expenditure of energy. To the extent the thought-
cells mapped by Mars are active is the life influenced by
thoughts of construction, destruction, initiative, aggression,
combat, sex, eating or drinking.
When Mars is prominent in the birth-chart it denotes one
who must have an outlet for his abundant energy either in
constructive or destructive work. He must have plenty of
action.
When prominent and afflicted, there is a tendency to-
ward quarrelsomeness and HARSHNESS. The earlier he re-
alizes that there is more opportunity for his INITIATIVE in
fighting disease, ignorance and poverty than in combating
any human foe, that undue severity and antagonism hinder
constructive endeavors, and that there is greater joy to be
found in building up than in tearing down, the more satis-
faction he will gain from life.

JUPITER
The arterial blood stream of the body and the financial system
of society are expressions of the thought-cells ruled by Jupiter.
These thought-cells which so powerfully influence good-
will and abundance have been organized in lower forms of life
through experiences with obedience to the ruling authority,
such as the parents, and looking to such higher power for
guidance, protection and the satisfaction of want. Because their
chief expression relates to religious devotion they are called the
RELIGIOUS thought-cells. Aspects to Jupiter affect through
abundance, optimism and joviality. To the extent the thought-
cells mapped by Jupiter are active is the life influenced by
thoughts of benevolence, veneration, hope, devotion, selling,
good-will or generosity.
When Jupiter is prominent in the birth-chart it denotes
one who feels menial employment is beneath his dignity. As
a consequence he seeks a profession, engages in merchandis-
ing, or becomes a salesman. His joviality and ability to gain
patronage and favors through the good-will he radiates are
valuable assets.
When prominent and afflicted, the good opinion he has of
himself tends to develop CONCEIT. The earlier he recognizes
that Deity has permitted others than himself also to have correct
opinions, and that he therefore should be charitable toward
those opinions, the sooner he will begin to realize the feeling of
BENEVOLENCE which he so strongly craves.

SATURN
The bony structure of the body, traits which stabilize the char-
acter, and ability to conserve or hoard material possessions, are
expressions of the thought-cells ruled by Saturn.
These thought-cells which so powerfully influence acquisi-
tion, fear, persistence and selfishness have been organized in
lower forms of life through experiences in seeking security,
such as in fleeing from enemies and hoarding food. Because
their chief expression relates to obtaining safety they are called
SAFETY thought-cells. Aspects to Saturn affect the life through
work, responsibility, or economy or loss. To the extent the
thought-cells mapped by Saturn are active is the life influenced
by thoughts of safety, secrecy, acquisitiveness, covetousness,
buying, trading, casualty, comparison, worry, fear, greed, self-
ishness, system, order or persistence.
When Saturn is prominent in the birth-chart it denotes one
who works hard, is shrewd and can buy to advantage, but in
selling does better to employ another. He has a leaning toward
business, is a lover of efficiency, economy and organization,
and has the patience to await for plans to mature.
When prominent and afflicted, he tends to become self-cen-
tered and unscrupulous in taking advantage of others. The
earlier he realizes that SELFISHNESS does not pay, that hon-
esty is the most profitable policy, and devotes his energy to

URANUS
The electromagnetic energies generated by the nervous system
are expressions of the thought-cells ruled by Uranus.
These thought-cells which so powerfully influence original-
ity of thought, and the ability to make marked departures from
precedence and custom, have been organized in lower forms
of life through experiences in departing, under stress of emer-
gency, from food or other habits. Because their chief expression
relates to originality they are called the INDIVIDUALISTIC
thought-cells. Aspects to Uranus affect the life through sudden
events, through the influence of people, and through radical
changes. To the extent the thought-cells mapped by Uranus are
active is the life influenced by thoughts of independence, origi-
nality, inventions, the unconventional, methods unusual, or
methods quite new.
When Uranus is prominent in the birth-chart it denotes one
who is interested in things exceptionally old or exceptionally
new. He is apt to be unconventional, is abrupt, and takes
extreme views. He has the power to mold the opinions of others
through conversation or oratory, and is always enthusiastic
about reformation of some kind.
When prominent and afflicted, he tends to go to unreason-
able extremes. The earlier he learns that moderate views in most
things, and the avoidance of ECCENTRICITY, will enable him
to get his ORIGINALITY more readily accepted where essential

the reforms he seeks.

sions and the ability to bring through from the astral world
consciousness of what is there apprehended have been organ-
ized in lower forms of life through experiences in which mental
escape has been made from the harsh restraining walls of
reality. Because their chief expression relates to images of con-
ditions more perfect they are called UTOPIAN thought-cells.
Aspects to Neptune affect the life through the imagination,
increased sensitiveness, and schemes. To the extent the
thought-cells mapped by Neptune are active is the life Influ-
enced by wishful thinking, fantasy thinking, day dreaming,
apprehension, idealistic visions, living in the imagination, or by
thoughts of easy wealth or promotion.
When Neptune is prominent in the birth-chart it denotes
one who has a lively imagination, and who possesses the power
to get others interested in his projects. He is a good promoter
and has decided dramatic talents, but dislikes both system and
discipline, and seeks to avoid hard work.
When prominent and afflicted, he fails to think things
through, gives way to VAGUENESS, and instead of critically
analyzing his ideas prefers to believe what he wishes to be true.
The sooner he learns that the only valuable ideas are those

which may be made practical the more fully will he be able to
realize IDEALISM for which he yearns.

PLUTO
Inner-plane forces, including on the lower side those most drastic
and insidious, and on the upper side the finest and most spiritual
of all, are expressions of the thought-cells ruled by Pluto.
These thought-cells which so powerfully influence spiritual
aspirations, or on the other hand influence inversion and awful
wickedness, have been organized in lower forms of life through
experiences in which there has been division of labor and co
operation for a mutual end. Because their chief expression
relates to co-operation for the welfare of the group, and when
spiritualized for the benefit of all, they are called the UNIVER-
SAL WELFARE thought-cells. Aspects to Pluto affect the life
through groups, through subtle force, or through coercion or
cooperation. To the extent the thought-cells mapped by Pluto
are active is the life influenced by thoughts of groups, statistics,
inner-plane conditions, drastic events, the inside of things,
gang methods, co-operation, coercion, or universal welfare.
When Pluto is prominent in the birth-chart it denotes one
who, consciously or unconsciously, easily tunes in on the

thoughts and energies being broadcast from the inner plane.

others to accomplish a common purpose.
When prominent and afflicted, he tends to be attracted to
groups who use him for their own self-seeking purpose, and
who use coercion either to cause him to do as they wish, or to
compel others to do their bidding. The earlier he learns to
recognize and shun INVERSION and instead to work for UNI-
VERSAL WELFARE, the more satisfaction he will gain from life.
