I’ve noticed that many astrologers seem to take the outer planets personally, and this is a huge mistake. The outer planets are extremely important; however, you have to understand what they represent, and how they function in the context of the natal chart. Most astrologers have a general understanding of how each of the outer planets expresses. What they lack, however, is the context that allows them to incorporate this information in specific, practical ways in a natal interpretation.
This is one of many key concepts missing from most astrologers’ education. Fortunately, it’s an easy problem to fix. All you have to do is consider what you already know about the outer planets, and then connect the dots.
