Astrology Signs By Ruling Planets
The moon has a profound influence in your life.
Astrological Signs: Ruling Planets
Each zodiac sign has a ruling planet which influences the personality and also basic patterns in life. The planets in the solar system are in constant motion, and interestingly enough they move at different speeds from each other. Each planet has a personality and influence on your life.
I am going through all the planets and how they influence your life, your personality and also what is transpiring in your life. Astrologically speaking as planets are in orbit they move from one zodiac sign to the next at different rates of speed. To explain this more easily--the sun changes signs every 28 to 31 days...that is how it is easily known what astrological sign we are. The moon and all the rest of the planets move from one sign to the next a different speeds throughout the year. For example as a point of clarification the planet Saturn moves from sign to sign every 2 plus years.
There are 12 astrology signs and 12 houses representing different aspects in your life. The planets move through these houses, which is merely one aspect of Astrology in determining future trends. Are you thoroughly confused...Just keep reading. At least you will know your ruling planet and the amazing influence it has on your life and your future.
- ..Please note here that the length of the time the planet stays in one sign creates a different influence. For example if Mercury is in a zodiac sign for a month it has a short term influence...and Pluto stays in a zodiac sign for a generation than an entire generation is influenced. This explains the changes in generation technology and attitude.
Again a reminder that astrology is not the daily forecast in newspapers or the sites online that promise readings for a few dollars. To duplicate your personal astrological chart on the day, time and year you were born would take 25,000 years so there is always some facet in you horoscope that makes your chart personally yours.
The Sun and Moon
The sun rules the zodiac sign of Leo. We all know the power of the sun and in translation Leos are strong, straightforward and always bring sunshine into the room with their overwhelming personalities.
Wherever the sun appears it brings life to all the planets, which is very powerful. The sun also represents the father on your astrological horoscope and the role your father played in your life. The sun changes signs on a regular basis so we always know where it resides, unlike other heavenly bodies. Though not considered a planet it warms the landscape of all planets. The influence is temporary in your life and where the sun resides for the month will influence your life in a particular area. This is one reason why your birthday month is so important.
The Moon and its influence
The moon is a companion to the sun and in astrology they have close ties to each other i The moon represents your mother and the relationship you have with her during your lifetime. It is about unconscious habits you have, and each phase the moon goes through all month long has a specific effect on you personally. New moons are beginnings and full moons are endings. The sign of Cancer is ruled by the moon. Cancer people are an emotional group at times and look to their home for solace and comfort. The moon moves from one zodiac sign to the next every 2.5 days. so the influence is fleeting.in your life.
The Planet of Mercury
Mercury changes signs every twenty to thirty days. Mercury represents communication, writing and travel Those with a strong Mercury representation in their astrological charts are good communicators and often excellent writers. Mercury rules Geminis in an ambitious way. Geminis are in love with communication, travel and possess energy in many venues. Mercury is also the ruling planet of Virgos who are more introspective, thoughtful and obsess about decisions,unlike Gemini people. Both signs are very good communicators in completely different ways.
Mercury has gone retrograde. Perhaps you have heard this saying before. Three times a year the planet of Mercury appears to be moving backward. This can create havoc for those with lots of planets in Mercury. There are often delays, money issues, disorganization and temporary complications.
Venus is the planet of love, beauty and creation. People with many planets in Venus are often attractive, easy going and tend to get many gifts from people. When Venus is favorable in your chart you will look favorably to many people. Venus rules both Libra and Taurus.

Mars was the ancient God of war in mythology. The influence of this planet is energy and aggression. Mars in your chart represents energy and change, and it can also be draining on your personal energy.

This planet represents opportunity and expansion to your life. Jupiter brings good luck and joy in the area of life where the planet resides. When Jupiter is favorable in your chart it is a good time to trust your instincts and go for something you have wanted. Sometimes things seem to fall into your lap with this fortunate planet of Jupiter. Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius, and these people often have last minute luck, enjoy good health and fortune throughout most of their lives. Jupiter changes signs approximately once a year.
Saturn is a huge planet similar to Jupiter but the influence of this planet offers is constraints in different areas of life. The planet can bring limitations and restrictions. This is not a bad thing as those with a strong Saturn influence are often good planners and know how to make things happen and rarely deterred by obstacles. Saturn rules Capricorns who are often known with their sometimes saturnine personality. Capricorns are said to be old when young and young when old. Saturn changes signs every two plus years, so it has a fairly long influence on different areas of life.
Uranus was the last planet discovered in the 20th century and coincided with space travel and technology. The planet is one of unexpected and unusual changes in different areas in your life. Uranus rules the sign of Aquarius and many Aquarians are progressive and futuristic. Uranus changes signs about every six or seven years.
Neptune rules the zodiac sign of Pisces. Neptune is the planet of imagination and deception. This influence does affect Pisces who often can live in a dreamworld. Many Pisces people look to hide from reality and have to learn about life through practical means. Neptune changes signs every 12 plus years, so its influence is more general for specific age groups in determining personalities and trends for the future.
Three words for Pluto subconscious mind, sex and death. However it is often the rebirth of many things in your life. The influence of this planet can represent death, but not in the physical sense. Perhaps the death of a job, the ending of a relationship which can open doors for rebirth and something better in life. Pluto rules Scorpio one of the most internally strong signs of the zodiac. .Pluto changes signs every 15 plus years. It represents different generations and the changes of each generation as time marches forward.
