Knowledge about the context of designation for trans-Saturnian planets has facilitated the questioning of a strictly mythological and "symbolic" reading of the planets and the Zodiacal signs. Moreover, the history of astrology shows that the Zodiac and the Seven were constituted after a comparable aleatory process. The ensemble of these critiques is such as to motivate reflection about the models we use and their structural foundations.

The historical analyses that have multiplied since the beginning of this century put, like it or not, into the hand of researchers a multitude of texts, theories and practices, as numerous as the number of eminent astrologers, that are beginning to cause reflection of an epistemological nature about the intrinsic necessity of extant structures, about the sometimes contingent genesis of current theories, and about the links between models and their cultural roots. Astrology is not a fixed body of knowledge.

A global mise en relation of the real meaning of its operators with psychic and cultural data becomes renewed through contact with those data: thus astrology survives, despite its detractors, the transformation of its successive models.
