Of the planets, the Sun and the Moon, as the two luminaries are most important. Next in importance are Mars, Jupiter and Saturn as the major planets beyond the orbit of the Earth. Then come Venus and Mercury as the major planets within the orbit of the Earth and therefore always close to the Sun. The lunar nodes, north and south, called Rahu and Ketu, regarded as shadowy or secondary planets are of yet less importance. After them in significance we can place the distant planets of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto if we wish.
