The Players are the seven major planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Each Player has his or her own unique character and story to tell as found in Sanskrit texts, Egyptian lore, and Greek mythology. The stories of these mythical figures are scattered and woven through the fabric of ancient time. In both Eastern and Western Astrology, these mythical figures are used to characterize the celestial bodies within our solar system. In Metasymbology, they are considered the Players holding our cards in the Great Game of Life.
