Before telescopes were invented in the early 1600’s by the likes of Galileo and Lippershey, ancient astrologers and astronomers saw only seven planets visible to the naked eyes: The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. In the 21st Century with so much more to explore, there’s something to be said for returning to our roots to find certain truths.
While Modern Astrology is a great method for adding complex supplemental layers of energies especially in psychological synastry and forecasting, the core meanings of these seven traditional planets resonate when paralleling best-selling self-help book, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R.

The above seven planets form the basis of Classical Astrology, also known as Traditional or Hellenistic Astrology. Two experts and notable books I recommend about this ancient technique are “Hellenistic Astrology: The Study of Fate and Fortune” by Chris Brennan and “Ancient Astrology in Theory and Practice: A Manual of Traditional Techniques, Volume I: Assessing Planetary Condition” by Demetra George, forward by Chris Brennan.
