Star Signs and the Zodiac: What your ruling planet reveals about you

Do you know about your ruling planet? (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

You likely already know your star sign, and maybe even your moon sign.

You might have even done your full birth chart.

But did you know that you have a planet linked to your Zodiac sign?

Every star sign has a ruling planet (or two) that has a direct influence on the personality and strengths of those born under that sign. The cosmos has given you super-powers, right from Day One.

If you understand your planetary ruler, you can gain even deeper insight into your sign’s strengths and tune into your planetary super powers.

Ready to find out more about your star sign’s ruling planet? Read on.

Aries

Mars is your ruling planet and its energy is all about passion, conflict, competition and danger.

This makes you very ambitious and competitive in life, and you see everything as an adventure and a challenge. You are a high-energy person.

Mars has you bristling with red-hot passion, you can light up a room. No one ignores you, that’s for sure, and if they do… big mistake. You demand and command attention and recognition.

Scorpio

Scorpio, fortune smiles on you, because you’ve got two ruling planets. Firstly, Mars (see above), which gives you great charisma and ambition.

Your second planet is Pluto (the ancient god of the netherworld/the dead) which rules sexuality, transformations, the beginnings and endings of life.

As such, you’re innately drawn to the mysterious, the occult and the spiritual.

You’ve got layers and levels and secrets and depths… your psyche is a labyrinth. You’re a complex person, Scorpio, and wise as a result.

Taurus and Libra

Both of you are ruled by the Earth’s sister-planet, Venus (named so because of its nearness and similarities in size, mass and gravity to Earth).

Venus influences money, creativity and the arts, pleasure, romance and love.

It promotes a desire for luxury, high living, intense relationships and aesthetically pleasing surroundings. Neither of you can stand mess or ugly environments.

Venus helps make you both lucky in love, you’re rarely short of admirers and friends.

Venus also keeps you on track when it comes to money and finances. You know you like the good life and you understand that kind of living costs money, so you’re careful and shrewd with your pennies.

Gemini and Virgo

Although fickle and frenetic Gemini and perfectionist, buttoned-up Virgo might not look like compatible cosmic-twins on paper, you do share a ruling planet in Mercury.

What you both possess, as a result, is a leaning towards travel and exploration, a love of gossip and news, an ability to speak eloquently and write beautifully and a shared nervousness that gives you an endearing vulnerability (which you recognise and understand in each other).

You both enjoy conversing about anything and everything, and being in the know.

You make very good friends, and even partners, because you both hate to be bored or stuck in a routine.

Cancer

You’re ruled by the Moon, the Earth’s one satellite, which exerts a powerful influence over our seasons, natural cycles and even (some believe) emotions.

And, like the waxing and waning of the Moon itself, you too can be mutable and moody, feeling one way one minute and another the next.

You are intuitive, even psychic, and have a great understanding of human frailty and what really goes on, deep down, underneath the facades.

There is no secret or lie you can’t sniff out, you probably can’t even explain how you do it. This is a gift straight from your ruling planet (well, satellite).

Leo

You are ruled by the Sun, and therefore bask in its warmth and light, feeling naturally at home in the centre of the things (you do love the limelight, it’s true).

The Sun gifts you with eternal warmth and energy, and a natural desire to lead and be at the forefront of any situation or environment you’re in.

Taking up those leadership positions never comes off as forced or arrogant, because you exude a confidence and regal power that others recognise and align to.

You understand how to motivate, cajole and reward. This is your cosmic destiny: to lead.

Sagittarius

You’re the luckiest of all the star signs, because you’re ruled by Jupiter, which provides abundance, popularity and good fortune on those it influences.

Jupiter gives you oodles of luck and protects you from harm or disaster no matter how tight a scrape you get yourself into.

You’re a magnetic, charismatic character and you attract positive people, good opportunities and plenty of fortune.

Revel in this wonderful planetary influence, and have faith in the bold leaps and risky chances you pursue. You have a knack of landing on your feet.

Pisces

You’ve got two ruling planets, both of which are very different and create an interesting dynamic.

Firstly, Jupiter (see above), which brings you good fortune and popularity.

However, Neptune, the mystical and magical planet, also rules your sign so you’re drawn to, and excel at, anything requiring intuition and instinct.

You’re a lil’ bit psychic, a lil’ bit mysterious, and you enjoy the world of spirituality and magic.

Your planetary combination gives you the empathy and understanding of other people, and the charisma to draw them to you. Relationships are what make your world go round.

Capricorn

Your strict ruling planet represents obstacles, limitations, discipline, responsibility, duty and authenticity.

Saturn makes you ‘get real’, and you suffer no illusions (nor fools) about what life is all about (working hard and getting ahead, in your book).

Saturn gifts you with the fortitude and courage to face the truth and address reality, warts and all.

You bring a tenacious and steadfast approach to every obstacle and can cope with almost anything, making you an inspiration and example to others.

Aquarius

You are ruled by Uranus, and its influence is all about disruption, the unconventional and unexpected, innovation and progress.

Some people might say you were a little bit eccentric, or certainly a true individual, and that is Uranus working its magic on you.

Proudly independent, resolutely assertive, always looking ahead, self-improving. You know yourself, and you know you’re different.

You can stand alone against the rest of the world and teach us all something new, something different, something challenging.

Your powers of innovation enable you to see solutions to global problems the rest of us can’t. You’re a natural problem-solver.
