That was a nice explanation Michelle !!!
Just to show how unique in terms of astrology here are some factors.
1. We have 9 planets
2. 12 houses
3. Each planets stays for 30 deg in one house
Now the math calculate the number of combination you can get with these three types of variable. That’s how unique we are.

I admit I still have two other people to reply to, and I hope to do so tomorrow, but your comment prodded my fingers into action right now. I’m curious to what you’re calling nine planets. lol I know that must sound funny, but I’m counting by Western astrology:

1) Mercury
2) Venus
3) Mars
4) Jupiter
5) Saturn
6) Uranus
7) Neptune
8) Pluto

in addition to the luminaries–Sun and Moon,

and by Indian astrology:

1) Mercury
2) Venus
3) Mars
4) Jupiter
5) Saturn

in addition to the luminaries I mentioned above. Are Rahu and Ketu considered planets? In Western astrology, Rahu and Ketu are the nodes of the Moon, which I’ve never heard called planets. So I’ll appreciate your clarification (and I’m delighted to see you posting again!).
