Current Planetary Positions WP Plugin

Current Planetary Positions is a WordPress plugin that adds an astrology widget which displays the positions of the sun, the moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron, and the North Node in the zodiac signs at the current time. From left to right, the columns display the planet’s name, the degree of zodiac sign, zodiac sign symbol, zodiac sign text, the minute of degree, the second of degree, and retrograde motion (if in retrograde). If there appears an ‘R’ in the last column, then that planet is in apparent retrograde motion. Please note: astrologers refer to all 11 of these celestial bodies and points as “planets” for the sake of convenience.

The widget also displays the current local date and time of the viewer, as given by the viewer’s browser. The zodiac sign symbol icons are color-coded according to their element: red for fire signs, green for earth signs, yellow for air signs, and blue for water signs.

Current Planetary Positions plugin uses the Swiss Ephemeris inside to get an accurate longitude of the planets/celestial bodies.
