What's your sign's ruling planet?
March 21 - April 19
Aries is ruled by Mars – a planet of passion, anger, desire, and drive. In Roman mythology, this planet was the symbol of war and even the god of war. Being a rather fiery sign, Aries possesses similar qualities, too. Other qualities personified by the planet are aggression, sexual drive, and raw energy. Mars is responsible for the physical instinct and male energy and stands for something ruthless and sometimes even merciless.
April 20 - May 20
Taurus is ruled by Venus – an affectionate and sensual planet that is responsible for romance, money, beauty, and luxury. As you may remember, Venus is the goddess of love in Roman mythology that’s why ruling over Taurus is probably the best option for the planet of such bright emotions. It’s also a planet of flowers and chocolate hearts that loves to love and be loved. On the other hand, Venus can be associated with money, especially with those we spend on the most pleasant things. This is true about Taurus, too, as money is a very important matter for them.
May 21 - June 20
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, a planet of communication, intellect, reason, and self-expression. You may know the planet for its infamous Mercury retrograde periods – however, when this period is over and nothing is turned upside down in your life, this master of communication can be really cool. Along with communication, it’s also responsible for information transmitting and travel. Mercury, the messenger of gods in Roman mythology, is the right symbol for Gemini sign whose reps are often fun, outgoing, and adaptable.
June 21 - July 22
Cancer is ruled by the Moon, an emotion-driven planet that stands for all inner emotions that are hard to express. On the other hand, the Moon can be considered the mother of every human being, that’s why Cancer, a really domestic and family-oriented zodiac sign, is associated with it. Another thing the Moon can symbolize is the foods we love and enjoy. Just like so many Cancerians, the Moon is sensitive and nurturing; it’s responsible for the security and the most vulnerable sides of people.
July 23 - August 22
Leo is ruled by the Sun, and what else can you expect of the king of the zodiac? Just like the Sun is considered the center of our universe, Leo people often want to be and behave like the center of any company. The Sun makes the world around us lighter and brighter and stands for our ego and the force of our life. The Sun is something that drives us forward and still reminds us of who we really are. Those who’re able to find the balance with the Sun feel much happier than those who fail.
August 23 - September 22
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, just like Gemini. A planet of rationality, connection, communication, and technology, Mercury is a perfect companion for Virgo. Virgo natives are known as intelligent, pragmatic, and practical which makes smart Mercury just the right planet to rule over the sign. Sharing information is important both for Virgo reps and for those who consider Mercury their patron. Besides, Mercury adds some criticism to those born under Virgo and makes them perfect critics.
September 23 - October 23
Libra is ruled by Venus, just like Taurus, and this fact is certainly not a mere coincidence. It’s not easy to share one planet but these signs cope with it just fine! Libra reps are all about partnership and balance and Venus is needed to achieve harmony in yourself and your relationship with others. Libra people are naturally born mediators who appreciate honesty and are still ready to work hard when they need to protect those who they love. Venus makes Libra guys the best partners and friends, but they try to find similar qualities in others as well.
October 24 - November 22
Scorpio is ruled by Pluto – no wonder! The darkest sign of the zodiac can’t but be somehow connected to the most distant planet traveling through the farthest corners of the Solar system. In the minds of people, Pluto stands for darkness, death, and rebirth. Those belonging to the sign don’t want anything lighthearted – on the contrary, they want as much mystery as possible. Pluto is one of the planets that never cease to fascinate people, just like Scorpio guys.
November 23 - December 21
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of optimism, expansiveness, abundance, and good luck. The planet is huge and encouraging; it brings positivity and growth to those born as Sags. Other things Jupiter is responsible for include travel, growth, education, and philosophy. Sagittarians are frequently on the move – if anyone is going to start a big journey, they’ll make perfect companions. The inner energy of both the sign and the planet is enormous and people are attracted to you because of your positive vibes.
December 22 - January 19
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, a so-called cosmic “dad”, while the Moon is considered a cosmic “mom”. As the “father of the Solar System”, Saturn is a bit too rigid and even authoritarian. It symbolizes limits, restrictions, and boundaries that can be called inborn features of all Caps. Although many people know Saturn for its infamous return, it doesn’t mean the planet is either hostile or wicked. Saturn is more about tough love and it may seem overly tough only because it wants to make us grow and become better.
January 20 - February 19
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus – a planet of creativity, progress, shifts, and changes. The planet shakes all norms, just like Aquarians often do. Uranus is frequently called the “Great Awakener” as its influence often leads to revolutions and innovations. For Uranus and for Aquarius, traditions are not even half as important as innovations and something new and fresh. If we try to compare Uranus to something Earthy, it will probably look like a lightning bolt – quick and powerful.
February 20 - March 20
Pisces is ruled by Neptune, a dreamer from another world. Its color is deep blue and its meanings are just as deep. Neptune, just as Pisces, is mostly about dreams, spirit, and artistic expression. Romantic and having-their-head-in-the-clouds Pisces reps are filled with fantasy and dreams and are often a bit detached from reality. If a Pisces person manages to avoid these escapist tendencies, he or she becomes stronger both mentally and physically.
