The Planets and the Zodiac


To start reading -> WHAT IS ASTROLOGY?

The heavenly bodies that are of influence over the destinies of human beings, and consequently over all human affairs,  will be given in this volume, together with their relations to each other and their various combinations, which, as astronomy teaches us, have re-occurred in regular intervals from time immemorial.

We shall find the influence of each star, of each constellation, and of each combination, based on the experience of thousands of years; we shall find elaborate tables, worked out with infinite patience by the old astrologers, and exceedingly helpful to the student. The directions for using them are simple and plain and can be understood and followed by a child, as are, also, those for the use of the “arcanes,” a marvelous inheritance from the ancient wizards in the shape of seventy-eight mysterious “tarots,” which were probably originally devised by the old masters as aids in teaching their art, and which are an interesting study by themselves.

Astronomy teaches us that there are two classes of heavenly bodies: “Fixed Stars” and “Planets.” The first are as many Suns at enormous distances from the Earth; our own particular Sun being, not the largest, but the nearest. The other class of stars are called “Planets” on account of their roaming habits, which are not, however, in any way erratic, since they follow regular routes over stated tracks, called their “Orbits.” The Earth is a planet and takes 365 days and a fraction to cover its orbit around the Sun, its central ruler. The other large planets known to us are, in the order of their nearness to the Sun, our common center:

1. Mercury. 3. The Moon.  5. Jupiter.
2. Venus.     4. Mars.           6. Saturn.
(The Moon, which revolves around the Earth and with the Earth around the Sun, and on account of its nearness, has a strong influence.)

If we now add that a large number of Fixed Stars, visible with the naked eye, have been grouped, from time immemorial, into Twelve Combinations called the “Constellations of the Zodiac,” we shall have an exact idea of the various celestial elements that furnish the necessary data for complete and accurate Astrological readings, or “Horoscopes,” — this being one of the first terms you must become familiar with.
