How Your Ruling Planet Defines You

How Your Ruling Planet Defines You
You might be familiar with how your Sun sign influences who you are, but how well do you know the qualities of your ruling planet? Astrology was developed based on the influences of the seven original planets: the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Read on to find out which planet rules your sign and how you can best utilize its powerful energy.

LEO
Ruling Planet: Sun
Just as the Sun is the center of the solar system, Leo likes to be at the center of everything as well! Your talents lie in leadership and management because you are great at energized, spotlight events. Channel the Sun’s power by being warm and supportive to those around you. The more you give, the more you get back.

CANCER
Ruling Planet: Moon

The Moon is known for its regularly changing appearance and mood. Likewise, you prefer to be in transition rather than stuck in one place. Life slides through continual growth and contraction; incorporating this natural ebb and flow into your lifestyle is key. The Moon lights up the otherwise-dark night, and your heartfelt words/gestures help light the paths for everyone around you.

GEMINI-VIRGO
Ruling Planet: Mercury

Mercury is fickle, changing direction and speed frequently. Mercury has an all- access pass, entering parts of the sky other planets can’t get into. Likewise, you find it easy to make new connections, and others love your ability to pull ideas and people together. An adaptable routine is best, as Mercury switches from super speedy to dead slow from one week to the next. Regular periods of reflection help you integrate all the experiences and people you encounter.

TAURUS-LIBRA
Ruling Planet: Venus

Venus is the brightest planet, just behind the Sun and Moon, which indicates that you do best when you can shine and share your inspiration. Venus’ motivation is to unite, so looking for win-win situations that allow everyone to enjoy the good life is ideal. Venus takes a six-week break every 18 months to retreat and reflect on life. Consider planning equivalent downtime to ensure you’re at your best when you need to be.

ARIES-SCORPIO
Ruling Planet: Mars

Mars is bright red and linked to fire. His assertive nature ensures you've got the drive to make things happen. Taking action helps you succeed, so when in doubt, do something. Mars depicts the warrior archetype, so you’re likely to be the first into any battle. Your competitive edge keeps you looking for new challenges. Standing up for what’s important to you is a must. Your pioneering spirit means others will follow; all you have to do is lead.

PISCES-SAGITTARIUS
Ruling Planet: Jupiter

Jupiter’s steady cycle has inspired cultures throughout history. Linked to Zeus, king of the heavens, there is a regal quality in you that uplifts others. When you stay in touch with the big picture, you act as an example for others to follow. Justice and integrity are key for Jupiter, so always make sure you’re acting within honorable intentions. Your searching nature drives you to look for meaning, which helps show others the many ways in which life can have purpose. Walk your talk and you’ll find success easy to create.

CAPRICORN-AQUARIUS
Ruling Planet: Saturn

Saturn’s connection to Cronus -- Father Time – makes you more aware than most of the passage of time. You are keenly aware of every moment and what you’re doing with it. Focusing on the long term helps you handle ups and downs calmly. You understand the value of limits in keeping you on track to achieve your ambitions. Whether you work in the world of the physical (Capricorn) or the realm of ideas (Aquarius), you know that working towards a few goals over time creates more success than trying to do everything at once.
