Your Ruling Planet

Kelli Fox

Most of us know our sign but what many might not realize is that each sign has a ruling planet. Every planet represents something in itself -- your personality (Sun), the way you think (Mercury), the way you love (Venus) and so on.

Some planets rule two signs: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn while other planets rule just one sign: Sun, Moon, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

As technology developed and telescopes became more powerful more planets were discovered. For centuries, Saturn has been our outermost planet but in 1781 Uranus was discovered then in 1846 Neptune and finally in 1930, Pluto (which is still considered a planet amongst astrologers).

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Mars rules your inner drive. How do you pursue a promotion or approach that hottie? The action planet speaks to expressing your passions.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


Venus is the planet of sweet lovin’! It indicates whether you're a fun, spontaneous lover or a sweet, thoughtful, hearts and flowers type.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Do you talk faster than your brain moves, or are you a slower, more thoughtful type? Mercury shows how you think, talk , and communicate.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Are you happy-go-lucky or do you get mad fast? Do you talk about your feelings or keep them bottled up inside? The Moon knows the answer.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


The Sun is the core of you -- what makes you tick. This is the inner fire that drives you, the energy that is the basis of your personality.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Do you talk faster than your brain moves, or are you a slower, more thoughtful type? Mercury shows how you think, talk , and communicate.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Venus is the planet of sweet lovin’! It indicates whether you're a fun, spontaneous lover or a sweet, thoughtful, hearts and flowers type.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Pluto rules your true grit and the deep, subtle urges that drive you from within. This intensely powerful planet is not to be trifled with!

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


Jupiter speaks to your higher mind and your potential for inner growth. It governs your spirituality and optimism; it’s your lucky star.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Saturn is the great reality check. As your sense of duty, it looks over your shoulder and tells you to focus, work hard and get serious.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Uranus is so much fun but it can mess with your mind! It rules spontaneity and the part of you that is new, fresh, raw and unexpected.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Like a dream, Neptune can be wild and wonderful, poignant and sweet or just confusing. Reality can be hard to see through your imagination.
