The Enneastrology diagram resembles the traditional nine pointed star of the Enneagram, with a crucial difference: Where normally the numbers one through nine appear at each point (each number signifying a different Type), I have placed the astrological glyph for the Enneagram Planet for that type. The archetypal symbolism and mythology of this planet bears special relevance for that Type, and will invariably be highlighted in the birth chart of the individual of that Type.
For example: If an individual is a Type One, the planet Mars will symbolize the issues around anger and will be highlighted in the birth chart. (I will discuss how the planet is highlighted in a subsequent post).
Another example: The Type Two individual is symbolized by the Moon, it's symbolism relating to nurturing and personal needs, and the Moon will be highlighted in the birth chart.
The Nine Types and relevant Ennea Planets are described in the table below. As we shall see, the expression of the qualities symbolized by the Ennea Planet are problematic for the individual of that type. NOTE: The SUN symbolizes Essence, is not an Enneagram Planet, and thus it's glyph appears in the center of the Enneastrology diagram.
