The placement of the planets when we
were born makes up our own unique personalities and characteristics.
Each planet has an influence over us and effects the way we
think, respond, react and behave. Not only does each planet
play a role in our personality but as they continue to go
through changes, we continue to go through our lives feeling
their effects. The effects make up our daily, weekly, monthly
and yearly horoscopes, while their placement at birth, determines
our identities. The positions they were in during birth and
the current positions combined, helps us understand certain
feelings and reactions they would have on us. Since each planets
position can have positive or negative influences over us,
we hopefully have the control to utilize the positive effects
and not the negative ones. Just how much of an effect each
of these planets has over us on a day to day basis depends
on our Natal Chart and our convictions.
