“What are the differences between the outer planets & personal planets?”
The personal planets are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars aka as your ego, your emotions, your thinking, your tastes and how you get what you want.
The social planets are Jupiter and Saturn; your perspective and your boundary, respectively. The best way I’ve heard this explained is that Saturn represents the skin or the barrier between you and what is OUT THERE.
“Out there” lies Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. These planets are referred to as the transpersonal, or generational or simply, “the outer planets”. They have dominion over things that transcend the personal or the individual such as atomic energy (Pluto), fantasy (Neptune) or lightning (Uranus).
