Key Concepts and Definitions

A key to the understanding of all astrology is within the reach of anyone who truly understands the meaning of the following definitions:

The PLANETS indicate specific dimensions of experience.

The SIGNS indicate specific qualities of experience.

The HOUSES indicate specific fields of experience wherein the energies of the planets and signs operate.

The ASPECTS (or angular relationships between the planets) reveal how various dimensions of experience are integrated within the individual.

These four factors comprise the astrological alphabet, and it is the art of combining the letters of this alphabet that results in the language of energy called astrology.

These factors are combined in the following way: A particular dimension of experience (indicated by a certain planet) will invariably be colored by the quality of the sign wherein it is placed in the individual's chart. This combination results in a specific urge toward self-expression and a particular need for fulfillment being defined. The individual will confront that dimension of life most immediately in the field of experience indicated by the planet's house position. And, although the urge to express or to fulfill that dimension of experience will be present in anyone having a certain planet-sign combination, the specific aspects to that planet reveal how easily and harmoniously the person can express that urge or fulfill that need.

Presented on the next few pages are some of the key concepts related to each sign and planet. The chapter on the "Elements and the Houses" explains the key concepts of the houses. (See Chapter 16.)
