    The secret here revealed!

    What is the enneagram really based on? No one knows except me. We are never told anything except that there are nine types. Why nine types, and why these nine and not others?

    The source of the types has been kept hidden because it might make the enneagram less popular among modern folks. It has, in fact, an esoteric source. It may have come through Gurdieff.

    The nine types are:

    drum roll............

    the nine planetary types in astrology!

    Yes, the world's oldest science and typing system is astrology. It is the queen of all knowledge. Not counting Pluto (which may not be a planet anyway, and was unknown when the enneagram was made known in the West), there are exactly nine planetary types in astrology. These types and a few keywords are:

    The Sun -- outgoing leadership, charisma, romance and gaming, glamour, radiant, life-giving, center of attention/power, important people (ruler of Leo)
    The Moon -- nurturing, receiving, feeling-oriented, sensitive, protective, tenacious, mothering (ruler of Cancer)
    Mercury -- communication, knowledge, teaching/learning, mobile, detail/fact-oriented, restless, nervous, perfectionist or fussy (ruler of Virgo, Gemini)
    Venus -- harmonizing, peace-loving, artistic, sensuous, attraction, love, values (ruler of Libra, Taurus)
    Mars -- aggressive, warlike, ambitious, tempermental, athletic, adventurous, pioneer, energetic, advocate of the underdog, or bullying (ruler of Scorpio, Aries)
    Jupiter -- philosophy, religion, clubby, expansive, prophetic, thinks big, prodigal, adventurous, generous, joyful, indulgent, big talker, moral guidance, good fortune (ruler of Sagittarius, Pisces)
    Saturn --anxious, practical, limiting, respectful of authority, status-oriented, structured, logical, disciplined (ruler of Capricorn, Aquarius)
    Uranus -- inventive, eccentric, electric, revolutionary, scientific, detached, individual liberty, intellectual, humanitarian, idealist (ruler of Aquarius)
    Neptune -- romantic, delusional, artistic, subtle, dissolving, escapist, oceanic, mystical, aspiring/pining, imaginative, addictive, compassion (ruler of Pisces)

    What do you think are the types that correspond to these? Hint, they are all in numerical order, except they don't start at the top and move down the list, to kind of disguise the correlation from those who aren't ready to accept it!

    This does not mean, however, that astrology is the source of all the ideas that have been added on to the enneagram besides the descriptions of the types themselves (e.g. wings, triads, directions of growth and decline, etc.). And they do not correspond to the circle in the way usually presented, but in a different way!

    Thanks for condensing the links like this.

    I have a couple of resources to add:

    Stackemup Enneagram

    Then here is the Stackemup list in the form of a photo layout (based on the list above), a shortcut to get a sense for the representatives of each type, wing, and stack without having to peruse through the videos:


    The breakdown is very pared down to the point that also leaves open the question of whether tritype is even necessary.
