Planetary Game of Thrones

GOT_Throne

If you pay attention to the planetary dignities, the rulers of each sign, you’ll notice an interesting phenomenon – a planetary game of thrones. There are more than the usual number of planets transiting through there home signs. We talk about rulerships in the post Finding Your Final Dispositor. You can review that upload, but for now, let’s look at this current Astro and what it might mean as a set of transits to the natal chart. Why? Because getting into alignment with it can boost your manifesting power.

What is a Planetary Game of Thrones?

First, let’s check the dignitaries, particularly what sign each planet rules. Here’s a chart to cut to the chase. You can see the sign on the left, for example, Aries. Then comes the ruler, Mars. The wheel shows the natural house of rulership – the 1st house.

Planetary Game of ThronesThe important thing to understand is that a planet is more potent and freer to act when in the sign it rules and right now we FIVE distinct planetary energies are in their own, powerhouse, signs.

Going counter-clockwise from Moon in Cancer in the fourth house there is Venus in Libra, Jupiter in Sagittarius, Saturn in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces.

That’s five deities vying for the throne. What I mean is, the strength of a planet being in its own sign is significant. The planet is in the sign it expresses most happily in, and, it may ‘dispose’ (lead, influence) one or more others planets, having sway over them.

For example, the sun in Sagittarius is disposed (led) by Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius. Same goes for Mercury Rx. Jupiter has some say over both. Saturn disposes Pluto, and will for years to come, as long as Pluto is in Saturn’s sign of Capricorn. Uranus in Aries is disposed by Mars, but Mars is in Pisces so Neptune is the final dispositor of those two. The Moon is strong in her own sign, but with no other planets in Cancer, she’s not going to make it to the throne this time of year. In July, it will be a different story.

So now, with half the planets in their own signs, there could be some inherent contrast between them (ie, within each of us). Note the natural T-square between Moon in Cancer is opposite Saturn, square Libra, just by sign. And Jupiter in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces. The question is, which will have more sway in your chart?

If any of these ruling planets happen to be your chart ruler, that is, if you are Cancer, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn or Pisces rising, you’ll be most pulled toward that planet and where it transits in your chart (12th or 1st house).

Also, if any of these planets rule your sun sign, or personal planets, take note. I have Venus in Cancer, so the moon sextile Uranus will have a stronger sway on me right now, pulling my relationships into this planetary game of thrones event. (Venus rules partnership, and money and art!) I might be torn between being in my own nurturing nest (Cancer) and putting out content/editing/producing (Saturn). Maybe I’m balancing that pull right now by writing this post while in my little ‘tower in the woods’.

How to Align with the Planetary Game of Thrones?

Think of this vibe as a chance to put awareness on the contrast between these planets and what they represent to you. Saturn’s urge to commit and make things solid has to find balance with Jupiter’s and Neptune’s urge to keep things in the realm of infinite possibilities. The Moon’s urge to shelter, store and eat carbs can come to terms with Saturn’s drive toward fitness and strength. Venus in Libra wants everyone to get along but if there’s an inner creative struggle, that won’t happen until you orchestrate balance.

And all this with Mercury Rx, ie the Trickster, ready to tip the apple cart on anything that has become staid, repressed, predictable or outmoded.

The trick now is to honor where these power planets fall in your chart. Find which one resonates the strongest for you and do a little homage. That means, respect the part of you that embodies that planet, by sign and house.

We can talk more about this on the forum, or here in the comments.

Let’s see where it’s happening in your chart!
