According to the ancient writer, Hermes Trismegistus, each planet has implanted a little bit of its character into the Spirit of each human born on Earth. Since the planets were called the Governors of Destiny, it was important to know the typical influences of these planets. (see the Creation Story under articles)

Hermes reminds us that we take on the influence of the planets when we enter physical form–our human body. He says that to return to the realm of God, we must know enough about each planet’s influence on us to return that influence to the planet–to divest ourselves of the shell of ego. In symbolic form, this is still important. It helps us to recognize the difference between our Personality Shell, and our Deeper Self.
