The ten planets that rule in the world of astrology are the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
These planets are the factors and guides that we look upon in order to know the contents of the astrology charts. The horoscopes, zodiac signs and birth charts are all given significance and meaning by the astrology planets namely the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Each of these is a symbol of strength and weakness of an individual. It has a great connection with one’s social life, future and personality. All planets from the Sun till Saturn are inner planets that denote one’s personal traits. On the other hand, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are the astrological planets that rules over who one will be in the bigger picture.
The ruler of Leo is the Sun. It is the source of life and is also the center of the solar system. It stands for one’s individuality and fundamental energy. The Sun embodies our mindful, enthusiastic life force, our concentration in our vision in life, and the persona we are striving to be in the long run. It is the focal point of our potential and distinctiveness as a human being. When we abide to our heart’s desire, we are acknowledging this planet.
The ruler of Cancer is the Moon. It symbolizes the sentiments and emotional state of a person. This is our feeling nature. It is mainly a female energy which is linked to the past and to our family roots. We honor and salute the Moon when we care for others as we care for ourselves.
The ruler of Gemini and Virgo is Mercury. It denotes the brain and one’s opinion and thinking. Mercury, otherwise known as the Trickster or Winged Messenger, focuses on the mind. It is our brainpower and intellectual outlook. It thinks, communicates, observes, sees, and hears, what is significant to us.
The ruler of Taurus and Libra is Venus. Venus stands for love and charm or attraction. It also symbolizes creativity. Venus is the astrological planet that implies temptation, attractiveness, art, harmony, poise and treatment. This also includes your social skills and your ability to attract other people. Another thing is it suggests how you are with money.
The ruler of Aries and Scorpio is Mars. This planet is a symbol of desire and determination. The red planet gives us the passion and energy to go for what we really want and need so as to make things happen. But when it is not placed in the right spot, Mars may denote rage, accidents, and harm.
The ruler of Sagittarius is Jupiter. Its meanings are faith and good fortune. Jupiter is one of the social planets which has longer orbits and denotes our social life. This is the planet of luck. It also signifies one’s drive to explore and grow to learn and acquire more opportunities and freedom too. When it is in good light, Jupiter leads to success, recognition and long distance trips. But on the other hand, you could be lazy when its light doesn’t shine your way. Jupiter also governs over faith and belief.
The ruler of Capricorn is Saturn. Obligation and limitation are its focal concerns. This is also a social planet same as Jupiter. It is the slowest among the inner planets and it provides us with the lessons we get in out encounters. It symbolizes restrictions, safety and inhibition. We are considered as an adult by the age of 29 because by this time, Saturn has made its way through the rest of the Zodiac signs.
The ruler of Aquarius is Uranus. This outer planet focuses on one’s eccentricity and development. This is the planet of sudden changes that usually cost traditions to be swerved aside. It results to rebelliousness, rapid change of thoughts, disturbances to the society and simply makes one upset. But Uranus also rules over creativity, innovation and distinctness.
The ruler of Pisces is Neptune. It denotes vagueness and fantasies. This outer planet brings misconception, misunderstanding and trickery. This is linked to our imaginings and sacred enlightenment. Neptune governs the upheavals in this world. On the good side, Neptune governs over visionaries and people who are opulent and oozing with charisma. On the darker side, it symbolizes aspiring thoughts and wishes and daydreaming.
The ruler of Scorpio is Pluto. Supremacy and renovation are its central theme. This outer planet is known to be the place of intense change in being. This planet is somehow like Pandora’s Box but it may also contain hidden qualities that will regenerate and rebirth and not destroy. Bad occurrences start the rule of Pluto but when exercised as to control, the outcomes are often on the bright side and can cause good change.
All these are just a guide that will aid us in our daily lives. They serve as signs that will lead you on the right path. Now, it is up to you to believe it.
