A Planetary 'Survival Style' Guide

Your Planetary Survival Style


What planetary type do you embody?

Everyone has a personal style that predominates, especially under pressure. This may be expressed by a particular placement or repeated theme in your birth chart – or you may simply identify with one planetary type more than another.
This guide has been written today, to share something with an astrological theme that might help keep spirits up, during this strange, surreal time. It is meant to be light hearted – please take it in the fun way it is meant! (I believe a sense of humour can help us to keep grounded). Bear in mind the guide may, nonetheless, point out some of the extremes of human behaviour, as well as special strengths. You may just find a grain of truth in there, somewhere, or (preferably) something that makes you nod or smile. A few of us will also relate to more than one planetary type, too.
Those who already know your birth chart - or the subject of astrology – well; I know you know this stuff 😊 If I left something out, made errors, and/or you want to add your interpretations, feel free to say so, in the ‘comments’!

Are you Martian?
Mars – You’re impatient. You desperately want to take action. Or you want someone else to ‘do something’. You can lash out. After you’ve lashed out, however, you usually regret it and want to move on with the good stuff. You have a warm heart and will be the first to make up, so long as you believe it doesn’t make you seem weak or vulnerable. You’re a starter and you get things done! We need your courage and restlessness, to avoid stagnancy.
In the chart, this might apply to planets in Aries or Scorpio; Mars in a prominent place (Rising/on the Midheaven/close to a significant planet, like the Sun or Moon).

Are you Venusian?
Venus – You reach for the sweets/chocs/biscuits/cake, or hand them out. You do everything in your power to get people on side. You personally invented the charm factor. You are kind and you know how to help others feel better about themselves. You make an effort with your appearance and nice things – scents, cleanliness, candles, crystals, frills, comforts – whatever makes you feel better. Other people usually benefit when you do this, too!
In the chart, this might apply to planets in Taurus or Libra; Venus in a prominent place (Rising/on the Midheaven/close to a significant planet, like the Sun or Moon).

Are you Mercurial?
Mercury – You think, and you talk – sometimes one without the other. It’s important to you to connect, mostly to anyone who will listen. You can struggle to disconnect, but partly because you need to hear what’s going on and offer responses. You want – and can give - reassuring words. You think up great options and have plenty of questions and suggestions. You know none of us is really stuck. It’s all progress! We just have to figure out a new idea, or a fresh plan.
In the chart, this might apply to planets in Gemini or Virgo; Mercury in a prominent place (Rising/on the Midheaven/close to a significant planet, like the Sun or Moon).

Are you Jupiterian?
Jupiter – You want to go as far away as possible. You love to broadcast your philosophy and connect with people – preferably a large crowd, all at once. You may expect too much of situations; you easily overextend, or assume others are capable of more than they are. You can take a lot for granted; a few may even dare to accuse you of arrogance, although it’s not where you’re coming from. You have a strong need and ability to dispense wisdom. You are determined to see the bigger picture, and find the bright side.
In the chart, this might apply to planets in Sagittarius or Pisces; Jupiter in a prominent place (Rising/on the Midheaven/close to a significant planet, like the Sun or Moon).

Are you Saturnine?
Saturn – You are cautious and want to do everything by the book. You aim to control everything and tend to impose a rule system on others and yourself. You are reserved to the point of being mean – sometimes acting like you’re not worth any extras (hey, you are!) You survive, anyway, because you are so good at making the most of bare necessities, and creating something out of very little. You will sleep ok on a rock, if necessary. Indeed, you are a rock (to many who trust you and rely on you).
In the chart, this might apply to planets in Capricorn or Aquarius; Saturn in a prominent place (Rising/on the Midheaven/close to a significant planet, like the Sun or Moon).

Are you Uranian?
Uranus – You’re a special case. Quite unique. You respond differently to others. Going into isolation feels ok – it’s peaceful and soothing. Deep down you want to be loved, or at least acknowledged (respected, even), but the idea of anyone getting too close is pretty suffocating. The internet can provide some of your greatest lifelines. You may be able to offer remote healing or wisdom. Your cool perspective helps you avoid going into panic. You have been known to levitate.
In the chart, this might apply to planets in Aquarius; Uranus in a prominent place (Rising/on the Midheaven/close to a significant planet, like the Sun or Moon).

Are you Neptunian?
Neptune – You go to sleep. You escape into meditation or the Mothership Connection of music. You might drink a lot, if it suits you - or stringently avoid doing so, if not. You write poetry that captures the essence of the situation and all the feelings involved (yours and others’). You dream about a better future, a world where people are kinder and more sensitive. You are an inspiration and you need to remember that; don’t hide your light under a bushel! It’s safe to come out occasionally…honestly. There will be benefits.
In the chart, this might apply to planets in Pisces; Neptune in a prominent place (Rising/on the Midheaven/close to a significant planet, like the Sun or Moon).

Are you Plutonic?
Pluto – You remember all the reasons you didn’t like certain people (and chose to distance yourself from them). You are vindicated in recognising you were right to do so, but can allow space for those showings signs of redeeming themselves. You get rid of what you don’t need, though. You also manage to locate everything you do need, even though you might not even have realised you had it. You reinvent from what you left with. You are not beaten, even when almost dead. Nobody keeps a good Plutonian down for long!
In the chart, this might apply to planets in Scorpio; Pluto in a prominent place (Rising/on the Midheaven/close to a significant planet, like the Sun or Moon).
