Find out your ruling planet!The ruling planet of your star sign is responsible for all major characteristics attributed to it. For example, a Leo gets it charisma from the Sun and Aries its vitality from Mars!

For inhabitants of any particular sign, the ruling planet is more important than any other as it has the single biggest impact on the way in which you can best utilize your energy and apply it to life circumstances.

So are you aware about the ruling planet of your sun sign?

If not, then simply read on!

When Astrology was being developed seven elements were most influential in the sky. This included the Sun, The Moon and the five original planets: Mars, Venus, Mercury, Moon, Jupiter and Saturn.

Aries & Scorpio

Ruling Planet: Mars

The mighty fiery warlord of the stars, Mars rules over these two signs. The intensity of the Scorpio and the robust physicality of Aries are derived from the drives of Mars. The fiery red planet bequeaths Arians and Scorpios the inner passion to make things happen. These are action focused signs which work their way with desire to success. Sports, competitions and tests of skills are welcomed with gusto. These are signs that are born to lead not follow!

Taurus & Libra ruling planet

Taurus & Libra

Ruling Planet: Venus

Just behind the Sun and the Moon, Venus shines so bright it is known as the ‘evening star’. Basically meaning that sharing your glow and inspiration with others is when you truly come into your own. In the solar system, it is the symbol of luxury, aesthetics and quality of life. The Taurians and Librans are highly creative and naturally seek out the best possible amicable win-win situation for everyone to find peace and harmony. This planet is not short on charming quirks though! Every 18 months, it takes a six week break to rejuvenate and reflect. As such, both these signs do well to take a break just like their ruling planet to be at their best!

Gemini & Virgo

Ruling Planet: Mercury

The small and nimble Mercury darts around the sky at quick speed. It has the best access to the Sun, the king of our solar system. Similarly, the inhabitants of Gemini and Virgo are fast movers in life. Their changes in direction and speed enable them to be great networkers, connecting with others in different and diverse ways. They always seem to know someone somewhere! They are fulcrum on which great organizations are built as they unify people and pull ideas together. These mercurial signs do well because of their inadvertent ability to delve in deep then switch to relax mode on the flip of a coin, facilitating the integration of all the experiences encountered into one lump constructive view.


Ruling Planet: Moon

The Cancerians are led by that shape-shifter, The Moon. The sign is hence most comfortable with change and thrives on it. Though the waxing and waning of the ruling planet makes big successes and failures a reality of life, it prefers it to being stagnant because it aids in continual growth and development.  Like the moon lights up a dark night, the Cancerian’s empathy and care nurtures paths of those around them.


Ruling Planet: Sun

The Sun’s gravity literally makes our world go round! Similarly, the Leo’s charisma makes it the centre of attraction of any community it is part of. The high levels of energy and warmth makes Leo a desired partner. Like the Lion in the jungle, it is a natural trailblazer. A knack for administration makes them good managers in the home and in the office. When the Leo finds a cause it truly wants to devote itself to, there is no other spotlight brighter.  The more they give, the more is returned.

Sagittarius & Pisces

Ruling Planet: Jupiter

With its size and gravity, Jupiter exerts a strong influence on all the planets around it. It is the aristocrat of the solar system and stands for honorable intentions. Both Pisces and Sagittarians have an influence on people around them through their unique thoughts and philosophies. Many are keen in seeing the big picture which drives that thirst for meaning and purpose. With all that substance, attaining success is easy to come by when words are put to action.

Capricorn & Aquarius

Ruling Planet: Saturn

Saturn has an age old association with Time and therefore both Capricorns and Aquarians have this sense built into their essence. They are always aware of what is happening at what moment and what needs to be done. The Capricorn is more grounded while the Aquarian floats in the world of thoughts. Yet both understand the value of steady persistence toward a goal is much more attainable than attempting to do everything at once. They tend to have an air of calmness about them and ease of dealing with the waves of life’s journey.

Again...the Sun is the most powerful force in the solar system, not Mars. And the Sun doesn't just bestow ego or leadership or attention or charisma or other nonsense.

It bestows Leo it's great physical strength and physicality, limitless energy, courage, vitality, willpower, dominance, and overall robust health.

So get your facts straight and start describing both Leo and the Sun for the mighty and powerful forces of nature they are.

The Sun is far far stronger than Mars and lions are far stronger than any ram or scorpion so again...use some common knowledge and get it straight.
