The Moon is the closest heavenly body to the Earth. It has always been associated with magic and mysteries, especially the female mysteries. Since the beginning of time the Moon has been worshiped as the Mother-Goddess, the central, most important female Goddess, who bestows the power of fertility and reigns over birth, death and regeneration.
Astrologically, the Moon signifies the soul, or anima, our feelings, impulses and responses to the world around. The Moon governs the imagination, the key to magic and manifestation. She also rules mother and mothering-impulses, genesis and female creativity, instinct and intuition. She represents the emotional life of the human psyche.

The planets are the wandering stars that travel around the Zodiac and in astrological terminology include Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Modern astrology has added Uranus, Neptune and Pluto to the list. The ancients regarded them as a pantheon of deities whose dynamic interactions had their repercussions in our world. People worshipped and honoured the Gods with rituals and ceremonies or prayed for their divine support in their various endeavours: to win a battle or a maiden's heart, or grant a plentiful harvest and send good weather. Modern astrologers tend to 'psychologize' these deities and regard the planets as parts of the personality.
