Astrological planets

Planets in astrology have each of the psychological influences on human beings. The ephemeris used to know the exact position of the planets at any given time.

In astrology, there are 10 planets which are the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Each of these planets is an energy. Its action will be influenced by the sign or the house where she is.

The 10 planets differentiate into fast-moving planets and planets called slow.
The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars are called planets or personal fast. They are so named because they travel in a short time the zodiacal circle, allowing them to rapidly switch from one sign to another. The Sun and the Moon are the two planets that play the biggest role on the personality of an individual. They are called also Lighting, because they are the brightest in the solar system.
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are planets called slow or group. Unlike the outer planets, they remain several years in a sign, so that their influence is less on the personality of an individual.

There are also other minor planets known, as the black moon, asteroids, which play only a secondary role in an individual's personality. Each of the 10 planets confer specific characteristics to one or two signs in particular. This is what we call the master.
Downgrading of a planet indicates the passage of the planets for a few days or weeks anticlockwise before resuming its normal direction. Only the Sun and the Moon never retrograde. In astrology, it gives meaning to this demotion for personal planets say (Mercury, Venus and Mars).
