Exploring Family Connections with Astrology Signs and Planets
What are astrology signs and what do they have to do with family connections? On the surface, they are those ancillary identifications we use to look up our horoscopes in the local newspapers. This view is painfully gaunt in light of the full-bodied truth of astrology and what kinds of potential it can hold for you.
For example, the sign you’re looking up for your horoscope is only one small shard in the prismatic glasswork that is your astrological-looking glass. Common horoscopes are reflecting only one sign – your sun sign. Truth be known, you have many astrology signs, plus one rising (ascendant) sign. Your sun sign is most commonly known (and that’s how horoscopes are interpreted). Then you have your moon sign. You also have signs for the eight planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) and then you have a sign for your True Node and Chiron. Each of your astrology signs reveals a lot about your personality and family connections. You can look at your sign for each planet and see how the relationship might be influenced.
Humans are complex creatures; its fitting astrology is equally complex as to capture our diversity and compliment the scads of color combinations that form the human personality and saga. Paracelsus perhaps expressed it best when he said…
Paracelsus isn’t the only scholarly genius who stands by this statement. In fact, brilliant minds in the field of today’s quantum mechanics and physics have come to the same conclusions: That we are born from the stars.
Consider the implications of that statement. If the essence of who we are was born from the womb of our galaxy, what kind of potential would the human race hold? If our DNA is laced with stardust what kind of historical memories loom in our blood? Quite simply, I’m suggesting we move beyond one-dimensional horoscope trivia and embrace our starlit lineage.
Family Connections and Astrology Signs
I’m also suggesting that, as cosmic children born from a host of stellar and planetary parents, we share the same magnanimous energy. Our heritage is starlit. Our birthplace is infinite. Indeed, the very same trace elements and minerals that make stars and planets are found in our bodies. We all drink from the same starry cup. Furthermore, just as you share traits with your mother and father, on a larger scale, you share traits with the infinite, mystical forces of our galaxy. That means we have limitless power.
It makes you want to know more about your cosmic lineage, doesn’t it? You can too. By learning more about your astrology signs, you can begin your climb into a family tree unlike any other. Learning your signs will give you the tools to track down your true lineage. In so doing, you unlock your true potential.

In the meantime, here is a brief rundown of planets and how they are symbolic of family connections. In other words, each planet influences a family member or someone in your life. This list of planet meaning and symbolism and friends, loved ones, and family representations combined with the sign you possess for each planet will be revealing about your relationship with that person.
