Your Ruling Planet -- and How It Defines You!
While it's likely that you're familiar with how your Sun sign influences who you are, how well do you know the qualities of your ruling planet?
Astrology was developed around the influences of the seven original planets: the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Find your Sun sign below to learn more about your ruling planet -- and how you can best utilize its powerful energy!
Ruling Planet: Sun
Just as the Sun is the hub of the solar system, Leo likes to be at the center of everything as well. Your greatest talents are in leadership and management because you excel in the spotlight. Be sure to channel the Sun's power by being warm and supportive to those around you. The more you give, the more you'll get back!
Ruling Planet: Moon
The Moon is known for its regularly changing appearance and mood, so likewise, you prefer to remain in transition rather than be stuck in one place. You're well aware that life slides through continual growth and contraction, so it's important that you incorporate this natural ebb and flow into your lifestyle. The Moon lights up the otherwise dark night, and your heartfelt words and gestures help light the paths of everyone around you.

GEMINI and VIRGO
Ruling Planet: Mercury
Mercury is fickle and likes to change its direction and speed frequently. It also boasts an all-access pass that enables it to enter areas of the sky other planets can't reach. Much like this communication-focused planet, you find it easy to make new connections, and others appreciate your ability to pull ideas and people together. An adaptable routine is best for you, as Mercury can switch from super-speedy to dead-slow one week to the next. Regular periods of reflection help you integrate all the experiences and people you encounter.
TAURUS and LIBRA
Ruling Planet: Venus
After the Sun and Moon, of course, Venus is the brightest planet in the sky, which indicates that you do best when allowed to shine and share your inspiration. Venus' motivation is to unite, so you're best off looking for situations that allow those close to you to enjoy the good life. Venus takes a six-week break every 18 months to retreat and reflect. In the same spirit, consider planning equivalent downtime to ensure you're at your best when you need to be.
ARIES and SCORPIO
Ruling Planet: Mars
Mars is bright red and linked to fire, and its assertive nature ensures you've got the drive to make things happen. Taking action helps you succeed -- so when in doubt, do something! Mars depicts the warrior archetype, so you're likely to be the first to charge into battle. Your competitive edge keeps you looking for new challenges, and standing up for what you believe is crucially important to you. Your pioneering spirit means others will follow; all you have to do is lead.

PISCES and SAGITTARIUS
Ruling Planet: Jupiter
Jupiter's steady cycle has inspired cultures throughout history, and this powerful planet is linked to Zeus, king of the heavens. You possess a regal quality that uplifts others, and when you stay in touch with the big picture, you set an example for others to follow. Justice and integrity are keys for Jupiter, so always make sure you're acting with honorable intentions. Your searching nature drives you to look for meaning, which helps show others the many ways life can have purpose. Simply walk your talk and you'll find success easy to create.
CAPRICORN and AQUARIUS
Ruling Planet: Saturn
Your connection to Saturn makes you keenly aware of the passage of time; indeed, you seem to recognize every moment and what you're doing with it. Focusing on long-term goals helps you calmly handle ups and downs. You understand the value of limits when it comes to keeping yourself on track to achieve your ambitions. Whether you work in the world of the physical (Capricorn) or the realm of ideas (Aquarius), you know that reaching for a few goals over time is more likely to create success than if you try to do everything at once.
