Earth formed approximately 4.54 billion years ago, and life appeared on its surface within its first billion years. Earth's biosphere then significantly altered the atmospheric and other basic physical conditions, which enabled the proliferation of organisms as well as the formation of the ozone layer, which together with Earth's magnetic field blocked harmful solar radiation, and permitted formerly ocean-confined life to move safely to land. The physical properties of the Earth, as well as its geological history and orbit, have allowed life to persist.

The planet's interior remains active, with a solid iron inner core, a liquid outer core that generates the magnetic field, and a thick layer of relatively solid mantle.
. . .
By 3.5 bya, the Earth's magnetic field was established, which helped prevent the atmosphere from being stripped away by the solar wind.
. . .
Earth is a terrestrial planet, meaning that it is a rocky body, rather than a gas giant like Jupiter. It is the largest of the four terrestrial planets in size and mass. Of these four planets, Earth also has the highest density, the highest surface gravity, the strongest magnetic field, and fastest rotation, and is probably the only one with active plate tectonics.
Caught in the Wind from the Sun
28 November 2007
Venus Express has exposed the true extent to which the Sun strips away the atmosphere of Venus.
. . .
Unlike Earth, Venus does not possess an intrinsic magnetic field to protect its atmosphere from the solar wind, a constant stream of electrically charged particles emitted by the Sun. Instead, the solar wind interacts directly with the upper atmosphere of Venus.
. . .
The Analyzer of Space Plasmas and Energetic Atoms (ASPERA) on Venus Express has been studying this interaction and has revealed, for the first time, the composition of the escaping particles. They are predominantly hydrogen, oxygen and helium ions.
Na chia: The coordination and interlocking of the Ten Celestial Stems with the Eight Elements (pa kua), to the end that the first Stem, which is the embodiment of the active or male cosmic force, and the second Stem, which is the reservoir of the passive or female cosmic force, gather in the center and the highest point in the universe.

Well if you're the prince then perhaps the confusion is,
He hears the silence howling
And catches angels as they fall
And the all time winner
Has got him by the balls
Oh, he picks up Gideon's Bible
Open at page one
I thank God, he stole the handle
And the train, it won't stop going
No way to slow down
I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
The long broken arm of human law
Now it always seemed such a waste
She always had a pretty face
So I wondered how she hung around this place
But me & Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight
The Celestial aspect that can act as counter balance against this is Venus, she is capable of pulling the magic flying carpet from under Jupiter's feet, and for this reason she has been violated and suppressed, see here;
The true woman who possesses exceeding wisdom,
She consults a tablet of lapis lazuli
She gives advice to all lands...
She measures off the heavens,
She places the measuring-cords on the earth.
99. And because of my fate-determining song -- must I die? 
100. I-- my Nanna has cared not for me .
101. In the rebellious land,
they completely and utterly destroyed me.
102. ASimbabbar most certainly has not passed a final judgement upon me!
103. Has he spoken it-- does it mean anything?
Has he not spoken it-- does it mean anything?
104. After he stood there in triumph,
he expelled me from the temple.
105. He made me fly like a swallow from the window-
my life was consumed --
106. and so I must go to the thorny undergrowth of the enemy land.
107. He tore the rightful aga-crown  of en-ship from me.
108. Handing me a dagger, he said,
"This is now your ornament!" 
109. One and only Queen, beloved of An,
110. Mighty is your fate-determining heart,
for my sake, may it be turned to its place! 
111. Beloved wife of Usumgal-Ana ,
112. From the base to the zenith of heaven,
you are the great Queen (NIN.GAL),
113. the Anuna have submitted to you.
114. From birth you were the smaller queen,
115. the Anuna, all the great gods--
how you have surpassed them!
116. The Anuna kiss the ground before you with their lips.
117. My own trial is not yet over,
but a stranger sentence surrounds me as though it were my sentence.
