Master Norbu may be refering to the illusory body.
Often times you'll see planets being referred to as different points within the body such as the different chakras and channels within the body. The 24 planets, etc....
A yogi, or one on the path (a realized one), lives their life through the illusory body. Tantra is (secret) language intended for yogis only. It's no different than dolphins or elephants having their own language that we can't understand unless we are a dolphin or elephant. You can only understand the language if you are one of them.
We can't take anything we read in tantra as literal. Same as the Bible. Look at some of the trouble people have caused by people trying to take it literally.
It's language for those who are living through their illusory body (yogis).
It is a waste of time trying to intellectualize tantra!
It's like scientists who are trying to understand whale song. A complete and distracting waste of time!
