Planetary Intelligences is a lovely system covering the planets it has 10 attunements covering the following aspects:
The Sun represents the Self, one's way of being in the world. It can represent, on different levels, both the ego and the
higher Self or soul purpose. It rules Leo and is exalted in Aries. The Sun is the most important 'planet' in the chart
and symbolizes one's will and sense of vitality.
The Moon represents the personal self, the feelings and the unconscious. It is a reflection of the true self, represented
by the Sun. The Moon also stands for security and instinctual or habitual patterns, as well as the ability to relate to
others, and to be nurturing to others. The Moon rules Cancer and is exalted in Taurus. It is often contrasted with the
Sun as the female receptive principle versus the masculine or positive principle. The Moon represents the feminine and
nurturing part of oneself.
Jupiter is the planet of faith, positivism and optimism. It rules Sagittarius and is exalted in Cancer.
Jupiter represents the principle of expansion, versus contraction (as represented by Saturn) and the aspirations
of the higher self.
Venus is the planet of love and relationship. Venus is in-taking, rather than out-going (as represented by Mars),
and rules the signs Libra and Taurus. Venus has its exaltation in Pisces, and is associated with aesthetics, beauty,
refinement and romance. Its position in the chart indicates the area in which the give and take of love, affection and
sensual pleasure will be expressed.

and also great courage. Its position indicates how your personality will assert itself, and what modes of activity will
stimulate your physical energies.
Saturn is the planet of limitation and contraction, and the trials of life experience. This includes disciplive,
punctuality, and the conservation of material resources. Saturn rules Capricorn and is exalted in Libra, and is limited

restricted by fears and lack of confidence, and also areas which are important to be worked on in this lifetime.

imaginative and self login or even self undoing, and can be associated with drugs or media, as fantasy expressions.
Neptune rules Pisces, and finds its exaltation in Cancer. Its position indicates where there may be confusion and also
great creativity in poetic or musical fields. Neptune has been called the higher octave of Venus.
