The planets in the proper order of their speed through the zodiac are: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
In astrology, the planets are more than just bodies in space; they represent various human characteristics and tendencies and are loosely associated with the mythological characters they are named after.
Mars represents aggression, competition, sex drive, force, just as the Roman god of War. Pluto, ruler of the Underworld, symbolizes what’s hidden beneath the surface, the subconscious and intense emotional forces that we are blind to, yet drive our actions daily. Neptune, god of the seas, represents the emotional nature of the human collective, the deep abyss of mass feelings, spirituality, and many other subjects that are as hard for us to understand as our deep oceans are.
