~ The Historical Planets ~
These last three planets move slowly and have a similar sin influence upon everyone in the same age group. They may be less influential, by sign, on those who lead a more or less mundane life,
unless they happen to have their Sun, Asc. or
Moon in a sign ruled by these planets, ie. in
Aquarius, Pisces or Scorpio.

Neptune has the same sign effect upon all
within the same sub-generation because Neptune
takes about 12 years to transit a sign. Neptune

dreams are made of", escapism and vision.

generation to transit a sign. Where Uranus rebels against established norms and Neptune perverts
them, Pluto seeks to completely destroy and

espionage, secret police agencies, etc. It is
also the planet of the surgeon who cuts out that
which is diseased in order that the organism
might survive. Pluto's discovery brought with it
World War II and the "Atomic Age".

The South Node shows that which has already been done in the past, the lessons learned. It is also the path of least resistance, due its familiarity, the "easy way out".
