Planetary Classifications

Note: Although the Sun and Moon are not planets, in astrology, they are classified as such, in part, because planets were traditional regarded as “wondering stars, and in more modern times, for easier classification. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto were not classified in the traditional scheme, though there have been attempts at classification. Discussion on those will be included in the wiki at some point, either in its own article or in this one.
