The planet Earth, also known by its Latin name Terra, is the only planet in our solar system known to support life. It is the third planet from the Sun and the fifth largest. It is also the densest of all of the planets in our solar system.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Earth, known as Terra in Latin, is the sole planet in our solar system capable of sustaining life, situated as the third planet from the Sun and ranking as the fifth largest and densest planet.

Earth, alongside Venus, Mercury, Mars, and Ceres, belongs to the category of terrestrial planets, characterized by their mineral composition, comprising rocks and metals, whereas non-terrestrial planets are predominantly gas giants or gas dwarfs.

In astrology, Earth does not receive a zodiac sign assignment due to its role in the Earth-centered model of the universe.

Along with VenusMercuryMars and Ceres, the Earth is known as a terrestrial planet meaning it is made up of minerals – rocks, metal, etc. Non-terrestrial planets are formed of gas and known as gas giants or gas dwarfs.

Since Astrology is based on an Earth-centered model of the universe, the Earth is not one of the planets assigned signs of the zodiac. However, it is the position of the Earth that makes the immovable stars and constellations appear to move in the sky so the Earth’s position and the position of the subject upon the Earth has a great deal of impact on astrological calculations.

Within many Pagan traditions, the Earth takes on a divine aspect, often seen as a Goddess or, much less frequently, a God, who takes care of all the creatures who live on Earth as children.
