The Sun is the centre of the solar system, and despite its distance from Earth, has a seminal impact on our planet. Astrologically, the Sun is often called the King of Planets.

The Earth revolves round the Sun in approximately one year. The Earth rotates on its own axis in 24 hours. The Moon is Earth’s nearest neighbour and has considerable influence on our planet. The Moon -- known as the Queen among planets -- moves around the Earth in 28 days and takes 2 and a half days to move in one zodiac sign.

The time each planet takes to complete its orbit or revolution across the zodiac is given below :
Sun : 365.2422 days
Jupiter : 11.86 years
Saturn : 29.46 years
Mercury : 87.97 days
Venus : 224.70 days
Moon : 27.32 days
Mars : 1.9 years
Uranus : 84.02 years
Neptune : 164.77 years
Pluto : 248.42 years
Rahu ( the Dragon’s Head) and Ketu ( the Dragon’s Tail) the shadowy planets ( i.e. imaginary points of intersection in the path of other planets) in Indian astrology, always move in a retrograde movement. The Sun and the Moon are the only planets which are never retrograde. The movements of the planets are not uniform, their motions being less or more on certain days.

THE SUN
The Sun symbolizes the vital process by which other planetary energies in your horoscope are integrated, or wasted. The King of planets, the Sun represents the human soul and is a source of pivotal energy. In Indian astrology, his nature is cruel in nature, and he is a Kshatriya by caste. The Sun is often erroneously mistaken to be a malefic.

THE MOON
The Moon has for long centuries been known to exert influence over tides, and over an individual’s personality.In Indian astrology, the Moon is regarded as the queen among planets and is ranked next to the Sun. Just as the Sun represents the soul, the Moon represents the Mind.

It also represents, personality, feeling, emotions, passions, pleasure and pain. The Moon is the only planet which waxes and wanes and this is what we on earth term as ‘the brighter and darker half ’. In India, the former is called the Shukla Paksha and the latter, Krishna Paksha.The waxing Moon is benefic, whereas the waning is usually malefic. Some astrologers consider the Moon to be benefic from fifth of Shukla Paksha to the fifth of Krishna paksha and malefic afterwards.

Moon is female and Vaisya by the caste according to the Manu Samhita. Obviously, she influences more strongly during the night as compared to the Sun's activity during the day.The Moon is a satellite of the Earth and nearest to the Earth, and as such has a remarkably strong effect on the life of this planet. In Indian astrology, monthly forecasts are often made on the basis of the transits of planets from the natal Moon. The Moon thus occupies a pivotal position in the Indian system of astrology.

MARS
Astrologically, Mars is a planet of dynamic energy, practical action, impulse, creative force, heat and activation. It represents war and military affairs. courage, physical strength, anger, passion, fire, explosives, machinery, male sexuality. Mars represents expanding force, awakening desire and an outgoing temperament.

In Indian astrology, Mars is a male, a dry planet and a significator of stamina, courage, ambition, desire, weapons and immovable property. He is the commander-in-chief, representing physical strength in humans and is a Kshatriya by caste. He is often considered cruel and malefic.

JUPITER
Jupiter, the Prime Minister in the solar system according to Indian astrology, is the largest planet. It has long been associated astrologically with growth and expansion. It also symbolizes faith, our understanding of god, law, philosophy, politics, higher education, travel, spiritual and material matters.

In Indian astrology, Jupiter represents, amongst other things, wisdom and happiness. He is benefic and masculine by instinct, Brahmin by caste and has eyes of the colour of honey.

VENUS
Named after the Goddess of love, Venus symbolizes all that is beautiful, artistic, close partnerships and relationships, women and sensuous sexuality, style, taste. In Indian astrology,Venus often assumes the posture of a parallel Prime Minister. She represents lust and passion amongst humans. In Indian astrology, Venus is a benefic planet and a Brahmin by caste, with feminine instincts.

MERCURY
In Western mythology, Mercury is the Messenger of the Gods, carrying information between mortals and the deities residing on Mount Olympus. In Indian astrology,Mercury is the heir-apparent or prince. He is a messenger of the Sun and represents the mind and the intellect. The most unique character of the fast-moving Mercury is its power of commanding other planets and imbibing their qualities and characteristics. If associated with the Sun, Mercury will gain in dignity, position, prestige. Mercury’s association with the Moon will enhance the native's interest in the occult, and parapsychology and so on.

In Western astrology, Saturn’s sway covers, amongst other things. rules and regulations, the government, exams and tecahers, economic recession and so on. Curiously, In Indian astrology, Saturn, a servant by nature is considered the weakest of the planets and yet he is one of the most important and most feared planets, being a malefic. In Indian astrology, he belongs to a low or mixed caste, representing discipline, system, order, diligence, prudence, discretion, persistence, obedience and faithfulness.However, the beneficial effects of Saturn are often misundertsood or no properly understood.
