In our horoscope or birth chart astrology planets and houses are the most significant things. There are 10 astrological planets including the sun and the moon, we don’t count the earth as the earth is where, we stand and observe other planets. These planets are—the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and the Pluto.
Modern astronomers say that Pluto cannot be counted as a planet in solar system but it is still in the orbit so it does have its effect, albeit minor. Each planet has its power upon the zodiac sign as well as astrological house. All planets travel in an orbit at their own different speed. When you were born the sun, moon and other planets were in a particular position and this position will not be repeated in 4 million years that means until 4 million years no one will have same position of planets in his/her horoscope as yours. Every planet is associated with different aspect of your personality and affects your life differently. An interesting fact is those planets have an impact on us everyday and every hour of the day is ruled by that planet.
