Each of the planetary archetypes rules a collection of influences and energies, including organs and diseases, plants, emotional states, and constitutional strengths and weaknesses. All of the qualities ruled by a planet will share that planet’s overall signature, but each quality can also be subtly different depending on the level of being of manifestation.
