Don’t know how many of you guys have done this, but these are always interesting (because I like numbers!).
Enter your astro into into astro.com and see how much influence each of the planets have in your chart!
Then you are met with a loooong text file. You can read it if you want, but it’s a very shallow and repetitive machine-generated reading. Just scroll down until you hit a chunk that looks like this:
This is me! It calculates the strength of the plan4ets based on the position in the chart (whether it’s close to an angle, in a compatico house) and the influence/connectiosn it makes to everything else. Maybe to no one’s surprise, I am VERY LEO (rank 1) and my major planet is THE SUN (rank 1)!!! However, my chart “ruler” is typically Venus because of my Taurus rising, yet it is in 4th place in terms of influence (rank 4). Co-ruler is Saturn based on decant of rising sign, but it too has even less influence (rank 7).
What’s surprising for me? How much the Moon (rank 2) and Cancer (rank 2) have an influence on my chart! Must be all the bodies stuffed into the 4th house! Perhaps I have some access to that Fe power after all (I actually am suepr affectionate to my close family members, many hugs and kisses for all!). ;D Second surprise is how much PLUTO (rank 3) and Scorpio (rank 4) have influence over my chart! Intensified Fi maybe! I did always feel an affinity for scorpionic destructions, so maybe this is why!
I dunno how Libra wedged itself between Cancer and Scorpio in ranking, but ok… maybe that gives me some diplomacy…
My husband on the other hand is like Sagittarius, then Libran, then Scorpion with high Venus, Pluto, then Jupiter. Quite a lack of earth between us! lol
So how do any of your rankings look? Any pleasant or unpleasant surprises?
