The planet symbols are a representation of the celestial bodies in the horoscope chart. The word 'Horoscope' is derived from the latin word 'hora' (hour) and the greek word 'skopeein' (to view).

To cast a horoscope, means to draw a diagram of the position of the celestial bodies at a specific time. This can relate to your personal horoscope or it can also be used in relation to other specific moments or events in your life.

In astrology, the planets are divided into three main groups:

The inner planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) are thought of as the personal planets.

Astrologically these personal planets represent our basic needs, desires and drives.

Jupiter and Saturn are considered the social planets.

Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are referred to as the transpersonal planets.
