Astrology transcends religion, culture, and even history. The following is a quick reference guide to the Planet, Sign, and House associations, after they have been stripped of religious, cultural, and even political bias (as attributed to astrology during various conquests throughout history).
The Planets in our solar system are macrocosmic representations of the various aspects of each person. The Sign in which a planet falls will color each planet with a particular energy. The House wherein each planet falls will illustrate the area of your life where the planet is most likely to act.
The combination of these creates for a unique individual.
