The Chart Ruler: What Kind of Movie is Your Life?



Astrologers with a more holistic approach advise, and wisely, to not single out one placement in the chart too much. You’ve got to take in the whole picture. But, if there’s one placement that deserves some singling out, it’s the chart ruler. How well you express your chart ruler can make or break you.

What is the chart ruler? Well, if you don’t know, the chart ruler is the planet ruling your Rising sign. And since the Rising sign determines your entire chart, this planet rules the chart. So, if you have an Aries Rising, then Mars is your chart ruler because Mars rules the sign of Aries. I trust most of you reading this already know your chart’s ruling planet but let’s just go through them all:

Aries Rising – Mars is the chart ruler
Taurus Rising – Venus is the chart ruler
Gemini Rising – Mercury is the chart ruler
Cancer Rising – Moon is the chart ruler
Leo Rising – Sun is the chart ruler
Virgo Rising – Mercury is the chart ruler
Libra Rising – Venus is the chart ruler
Sagittarius Rising – Jupiter is the chart ruler
Capricorn Rising – Saturn is the chart ruler

These three signs have both a traditional and a modern ruling planet. So, you can consider both:
Scorpio Rising – Mars is the traditional chart ruler; Pluto is the modern chart ruler
Aquarius Rising – Saturn is the traditional chart ruler; Uranus is the modern chart ruler
Pisces Rising – Jupiter is the traditional chart ruler; Neptune is the modern chart ruler

So, if you know your Rising sign, look at your chart ruler and then find its house placement and aspects in your birth chart. There, we’ve got the basics out of the way. Now, what does your chart ruler mean? This isn’t something that’s as delved into as it should be. In my view, the chart ruler defines the tone of your life. Nothing in astrology completely defines us, of course. But, a person’s life will generally be dominated by their chart ruler, as well as the house that planet is in and the aspects that it makes. If your life were a movie, basically, the chart ruler tells what kind of movie it’d be, for good or worse. But, it’s up to you to decide what kind of movie you want to be in.

Say you have Cancer Rising and your Moon is in the 7th House. Then, the movie of your life could be a moving and sentimental (Moon) romance (7th House), defined by the warm, fuzzy, comforting love you receive in your relationship. What if you’re a Sagittarius Rising with Jupiter in the 5th House? Well, that makes your life a wildly entertaining (5th House) kind of movie, full of constant adventures (Jupiter) around the corner.

People live out their chart rulers much more powerfully than they may realize. And that leads me to the other thing about your chart ruler. It could turn your potentially brilliant life story into a critically panned flop. In other words, it can make your life suck as much as it makes wonderful. With a 7th House Moon ruling the chart, that compulsive search for a comfortable relationship could make you live the existence of an unstable co-dependent. A 5th House Jupiter as the chart ruler can turn all of those colorful adventures you thrive on into an irresponsible journey toward ruins, through all of your reckless gambling and childish decisions. We don’t always do this on purpose, of course. Since the chart ruler also rules the Ascendant, which represents immediate behavior, this just becomes an automatic way of operating for us. But, that’s why we have to change the script here.

Aspects, of course, are going to make a difference, too. They will tell you the ways in which you can express your chart ruler, especially if it’s an outer planet. If your chart ruler is forming a square or opposition to any other planet, this is a trouble area in your life that’s going to need to be addressed. So, if Pluto is your chart ruler and it’s opposite your Venus, your life is characterized by an imbalance between Pluto’s urge for power and Venus’ yearning to harmoniously relate. That is, until you learn how to find a happy medium.

If the chart ruler is conjunct a planet, it’s sort of like a co-chart ruler. It becomes a pretty big deal in your life. If Saturn was your chart ruler but also conjunct Uranus and Neptune, being a nonconformist (Uranus) and being empathic (Neptune) dominate your life, as well, but not as much as Saturn. Planets conjunct the chart ruler are like the co-stars but the chart ruler gets top billing. Trines and sextiles represent natural talents that planet has. If the Sun rules the chart and is trine Mars and sextile the Moon, you can be a leader (Sun) in ways that are assertive (Mars) yet caring (Moon).

It’s all important to be aware of because, in the end, I think the chart’s ruling planet and its house and aspects have a lot to do with the life that we really want for ourselves. It’s just that we can be a little misguided in our search, ending up writing ourselves into an unsatisfying story. And you can use your chart ruler to throw out that old draft and start a much better one.

P.S. Whenever your chart’s ruling planet has its “return”, it’s an empowering time for you. A planetary return is when a planet comes back to the same exact sign and house placement in a person’s birth chart. Depending on the planet, it can happen once a year, once every few years, or a few times in a lifetime. If you’re a Cancer Rising, though, your ruler’s return is once a month!

Your chart ruler’s return is a time of rebirth, allowing you to make a shift in the way that you live and see the world. So, it’s the perfect time to change your script. That’s why I’m looking forward to my Saturn return, which is still a few years from now. Most people dread it and suffer through it. But, for Capricorn Rising people, it’s when things start really changing for the better for us.

If you have Scorpio, Aquarius, or Pisces Rising, though, you’re going to have to look forward to traditional chart ruler’s return instead. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto take several years (about a decade and a half for the latter two) to transit just one sign. So, there’s no possible way you can live to see your modern chart ruler’s return unless you live to be 150 years old!

  1. I have Capricorn rising with Saturn in my third house, how would you describe it?

    1. I'd say that your life is about a struggle toward and dedication to great communication and high intelligence. You might have had issues in your grade school years in the classroom that gives you a certain feeling that you're "handicapped" in this sense. But, taking full responsibility of how you communicate with others will allow you to express the kind of maturity to remain well-informed and interesting to talk to.

      I'm not exactly getting the second part of your question, though, because Neptune and Uranus and the Moon can't be in the 1st and conjunct the 3rd House Saturn.

      Delete
    2. I'm sorry I wasn't clear... What I wanted TO say is that I have Neptune in the first house conjunct the ASC and Uranus also in the first house but not conjunct my ASC. So do I have to pay attention to these planets? And my Moon is conjunct Saturn so can I consider it as the co-ruler?

      Delete
  3. My Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are in Capricorn. Uranus and Neptune are conjunct and so is Saturn with my Aquarius ascendent. I imagine my struggles are somewhat like yours. What does so much Saturn and all outer planets being in my twelfth house mean for me, and does that diminish my Aquarius influence with all of it being placed in Saturn?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi, yeah, I have the same planets in that house. Having outer planets in the 12th is actually somewhat easier, I think, than having personal planets in the 12th, as this house is so beyond the personal and the self. So, having outer planets there makes it easier to understand that all of the 12th House action is so much bigger than you. I don't exactly understand what you mean by the Aquarius influence being diminished, though. You technically have two chart rulers - Saturn and Uranus - and they are both in the 12th. So, you are really focusing on 12th House stuff in this lifetime.

      Delete
    2. Maybe not diminished but hidden, then? I feel like a lot of tradtional Aquarian traits I see in well-placed friends are less apparent in my makeup. Also, my node is conjuct with Aquarius but a too far to be conjuct Saturn. That's why I feel a lot of both planets are significant.

      Delete
    3. Hmm, well, I'd say it's your chart ruler in the 12th. Anytime someone has that influence, it makes the traits of their Rising sign less apparent. I'd more so consider Uranus your chart ruler. It's placement in the 12th means that you might often come off as quite "normal" and even convince people that you're just a regular, sane person (whatever that means!), even though there is this overwhelming inner world of mad brilliance and wildness going on, just beneath the surface. So, you seem like less typical of an Aquarius Rising. You might feel more so that way alone or in your fantasies than in reality.

      I get it because, as a Capricorn Rising with Saturn in the 12th, I don't think I behave in very business-like or formal ways or anything. I'm very casual and laid-back. I've frequently been told I act happy-go-lucky and like nothing gets me down. But, there is a seriousness to me underneath all of that and many people can still pick up on that. Your Uranus is still definitely in your behavior but it just doesn't make itself known too obviously. It's tough to pin down. The 12th House is a mysterious influence. :)

    5. Thanks for your posts! I have the exact same planetary composition: Aquarius ascendant in 12th house, Saturn-Uranus-Neptune conjunction. I too feel my Aquarius energy is modified. It feels like it turned into big-picture detachment and objective sensitivity rather than zany inventiveness and individuality. Most people assume I'm a Pisces (total Virgo though) and this may be why. Thanks for the clarification.

  4. Hi wayman, I have Aries ascendant. Mars is in fifth house in Virgo trine to my Taurus sun sign in first house and trine to my midheven in Capricorn. What does this mean? Thank you

    1. Mars in the 5th means that life is all about having a lot of fun and expressing yourself, though you might sometimes become a bit too aggressive or forceful in your self-expression. The trines to the Sun and Midheaven show this attitude is an important part of your identity and your career path.

  5. Hello there,

    I recently discovered your site and I gotta say that I'm really digging your articles! (Especially the Pluto ones) I'm a saturnine-plutonian-solarian dominant and have a lot of "difficult" aspects and often find that astrologers in many sites tend to be so pessimistic and negative! It's so great to find a source with so much insight that is inspiring and has a positive outlook for a change. Thank you so much for this!

    I was wondering what you could tell me about my Mercury in Sadge in the 7th house (mutable planet singleton) and what it says about my life movie? lol. I'm a Gemini-Rising!

    1. Hey, thanks for reading! A 7th House Mercury ruling the chart shows that life is all about sharing ideas from others and brainstorming with them and getting ideas from them. You live for good conversation, especially in personal relationships, but Mercury in Sagittarius might make you a bit too blunt or self-righteous for your own good.

  6. Any insight for Sag rising, Cancer Jupiter in the 8th house? ๐Ÿ˜Š

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Jupiter in the 8th means that your life is about pushing yourself to the edge, more and more. You always want to kind of defy death, figuratively or maybe even literally, to see if you can get away with it. And somehow, someway, you usually make it through the fire without getting burned. But, you might go too far and live on the drama. So, I'd watch out for that. With Jupiter in Cancer, you can be even more irrational, in this sense.

      However, you've got amazing instincts and you are learning how to follow them, more and more. And on the higher level, these gut feelings can probably keep you safe and steer you very clear of danger that no one else would've seen coming.

  7. I've always had a hard time understanding and relating to my Taurus Ascendant (though my friends tell me it's pretty spot-on, I probably just don't notice it, having a lot of stronger influences in my chart.) But my Venus placement has always compounded my confusion.

    I have a Scorpio Venus conjunct my Descendant by 1 degree, but from the 6th House side. And I can't seem to find any information about Venus opposite the Ascendant that doesn't interpret it as being in the 7th House. Or really any information about the Chart Ruler being opposite the Ascendant in general.

    Do I interpret the Venus as more 6th House-y because of the house placement or more 7th House-y because of the conjunction to the Descendant? How does the Chart Ruler opposite the Ascendant thing fit in? I imagine Venus being in detriment doesn't help much...

    The only other significant aspect Venus has is trine to my Pisces Saturn.

    SOS?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'd definitely interpret it as 6th House Venus. Planets in the 6th conjunct the Descendant are what you feel needs to be worked for by either you or the other person in the relationship. Meanwhile, 7th House planets are sort of lazy and indulgent, automatically expecting that planet from others and/or giving it just because it's "fair." So, the 6th isn't the easiest place for Venus to be, sometimes, but you will put up with a lot less crap in your relationships. That's the good thing and that you can bust your butt to make love work, as well as attract others who can do that.

      Having Venus in Scorpio opposite your Ascendant, it makes sense why you don't relate so much to the Taurus. Your chart ruler is conjunct the Descendant, which makes it tough to feel like an individual. If you did, you would feel like a Taurus! :)

  8. Hi. I really like your article and have been trying to find something like this online which describes aspects to a chart ruler. Surely this is an essentially crucial aspect in the Natal chart, though I have consistently struggled to find ANY information anywhere (including innumerous Astrology books) about aspects to a chart ruler?
    I am a Virgo with my Sun in the 5th House, and Gemini Rising. Thus a double intensity of Mercury as my ruler, no?

    Mercury is in Libra, also in the 5th House conjunct Pluto. I also have Moon in the 1st House & Mars in the 12th House - both in Gemini and immediately conjunct the Ascendant. To round things off, I have Pluto Trine Ascendant & Pluto Trine Mars.

    I've always felt quite/very Plutonian and feel I have a quite volatile nature, though care deeply and protectively about my family - particularly my children. And have always felt alot less Gemini like. Finally, I have Saturn in the 3rd House - I'm not very talkative person - at least in work. Outside of it, I feel like I am a completely different person - people in my work don't know me.

    Are there strong Plutonian influences there in my chart in your opinion?

    Sounds complicated, right? That's what my wife says about me!

    1. Hi, thanks and sorry this is sort of late. Let's just focus on Mercury in Libra in the 5th. Essentially, you're living a life that's about living in the moment and fully expressing whatever is on your mind, although in a tactful, thoughtful way. You truly want to be an entertaining, articulate, awesome conversationalist and put a lot of thought into that. I'm guessing Saturn in the 3rd blocks that ability to freely speak sometimes, as you said. So, you have to use the 5th House influence to build your confidence through life about this.

    2. Thanks Wayman for your insight. I genuinely appreciate it. I've had your website/blog open since I posted hoping for it. I'm also going to check out your other posts as I like the points you made in this article.
      As I said though, and in keeping with the article above which is focused on the chart ruler, Mercury ('double chart ruler') - conjunct Pluto in the 5th, same house as the Sun; Mars trine Pluto, Ascendant trine Pluto. Strong Plutonian elements, no? Or am I just obsessing (Mercury conjunct Pluto) LOL?!

      Thanks again.

      Delete
    3. Strong Plutonian elements for sure. I think of anything conjunct the chart ruler as like a co-chart ruler. So, the conjunction from Pluto makes it really important to your life, as well, though it takes second billing to Mercury. :)

      Delete
    4. OK. But I absolutely despise Mercury - explain that?

      Delete
    5. I don't think you hate Mercury per se. Your Saturn's in the 3rd and, on some level, we can go through life really resisting certain things about the house our Saturn's in until we properly grow up. It's what we're scared of, what we doubt and worry about. So, with Saturn in the 3rd, you doubt that you'll be able to communicate in ways that people will find interesting or smart or relevant. There can be a running worry that you're just stupid. Or maybe others seem just stupid to you and like they talk without having anything important to say! So, the realm of good communication is your challenge and your responsibility. Running from that makes you despise Mercury. But, you have to face it.

  11. Hi I have capricorn ascendant conjunct Venus and Mercury with my chart ruler saturn in 9 th house libra . My saturn is conjunct Pluto and Mars and my saturn and Pluto square my Venus in capricorn in the 1 st house !! Astrology has made me realise the bi polar flip I have between wanting intimacy in relationships and then having a deep fear of getting hurt or losing my control .. Of course it results in extreme behaviour. I'm trying to even out and balance my behaviour . Can you give me any suggestions on how to empower my chart ? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi, Ailise. Saturn in the 9th is interesting, as it's such a "different" place for Saturn to be. The 9th House wants to believe in no limitations, while Saturn is about restricting you, in certain ways. So, your life can be spent feeling like you're just not doing enough, seeing enough, and exploring enough options. A 9th House Saturn ruling the chart can easily make you feel trapped in a cage. But, what are you going to do about those feelings? You have to work with your limitations and realize how freedom and enlightenment are also ever-present states of mind, not just things you experience. This gives your life a lot more structure and allows you to be a very wise teacher.

  12. Ha ha trapped in a cage ! Yes I've often described it as feeling like a wild horse with someone pulling too tight on my bridal and reigns .. Like I want to jump and run but there is something too heavy weighing me down . I love that you address the 9 th house issue . It's like a revelation to my ears . You are right by finding freedom in the saturn structures I set myself free along with becoming a bit of a teacher/ helper to others along the way . Bliss ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Replies
    1. I generally don't think in terms of cusps. I only see it that way if the planet is the same degree as the following house, but just minutes behind. Like if your Venus in Leo is at 9.18 degrees and your 11th House in Leo starts at 9.50. I'd call that a cusp. Otherwise, in my opinion, a planet's in the house it's in.

  16. Hello,

    Saturn is my chart ruler in 3rd House, which trine Sun and Mercury (11H) and sextile Neptune (1H). I release the Saturnian energy by focusing on estabilishing self-identity (1H) and achieving better future (11H).

    In school, the teachers remember me for having decent skill in public-speaking (I don't shy away from asking and answering questions in classes) and when I'm interested with a subject, I'll absorb huge amount information like a sponge. When it comes to subjects like Math, Physics, and Chemistry, my method of studying is: solving similar problems as much as you can until you understand and remember the formula.

    I feel way more comfortable interacting with the teachers rather than with my own classmates because they give dependable and knowledgeable vibe which is reassuring (Venus square Saturn).

    Thank you for another the wonderful article.

  17. Hello Wayman,
    I'm really interessed and intrigued to understand the influence of my chart ruler and its positions in my life path.I'm a Scorpio with Taurus ascendent, opposing my Pluto in Scorpio.My Venus is in Libra in the 6th House in Virgo.It has opposition with Mars(in Pisces in the 12th), square with Saturn (in Sagittarius in the 8th) and Uranus (in Sagittarius in the 8th), trine with Jupiter (in Gemini in retrograde in the 1th) and Midheaven ( in Capricorn).
    What does this all mean?
    Thanks a lot for the insight!

  18. It's difficult to interpret all of that at outside of a reading but I will say that having Venus in the 6th ruling the chart will make your life about finding a lot of pleasure and self-worth through getting things right and keeping things functioning and on schedule. But, you might also spend your life indulging too much in work, which is what makes a 6th House Venus a real oxymoron.

  20. My ascendant is aries with the chart ruler mars in scorpio in the 7th house. I also have the sun, Mercury and Jupiter all in libra and in the 7th house. However I feel very much like an aries. Could be because mars in scorpio is in it's own sign. Libra is all about balance, beauty and thought. I tend to want to dominate people with my ideas. .so I dont act very libra like as much as I look into all sides of the matter, I tend to value my point of view much more and it took me a while to realise this. The explanations about the 7th house planets were spot on. Thank you. My mars is also conjunct mercury

  21. Thank you for this informative article! I'm a very amateur astrologer, been learning for about a year, and I have been wondering about this topic.

    1. Oh, that's awesome. I'll be having my first Saturn Return two years from now. April 2018 is when it'll be exact but it will conjunct as soon as Saturn enters Capricorn. I'm looking forward to it, too. It actually feels like I'm already in it, based on what it's supposed to feel like, and so I hope it will be the other way around for me. That things will actually start getting easier and paying off more. I'm sure you can relate. Saturn in the 12th rules our life/chart, so we live it out really strongly. But, of course, it's a very internal, very private battle that only we completely know.

  25. I'm glad you did a blog post about this. I pay a lot of attention to chart rulers too. What would you say about a Cancer rising who has their Moon in Libra in the 4th house, but really close to the 5th, trine Saturn and square Uranus and Neptune?

  26. My chart ruler is the moon in Leo and its square my Pluto in Scorpio. My moon is also in my second house. Which I don't get because I don't think of myself as materialistic. I am scared of being poor or not succeeding in life mainly because I saw how it affected my mother. Is that the aspect playing out?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've never really paid much attention to my chart ruler; it was too much info for my little brain, and also, mine it's Saturn in the 10th, and... and I didn't think much about career, I was sorta... stagnated. So it didn't make much sense to me (but I also read somewhere that the planets in our 10th house, can remain unconscious drives... so I don't know)

    But lately, and on a completely different note, I've been wondering if having my chart ruler, Saturn, square Mars (in the 2nd, in Aqua) can give me a sorta of a Marsy vibe. Cause I've been noticing that in some of the pictures taken lately. (And I've got Jupiter and Venus in my 1st, and although I always loved the warrior persona (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but more like the Faith caracter...)I wished I looked much more venusian... I do envy that in other women...).
    And my question is: am I imagining things, or do a planet in aspect to the chart ruler (square, 1ยบ orb), but not in conjunction with it, still influences (taint with its energy type) the person's vibe/persona/image/body energy?

    Anyways... Enjoying your articles as always. ;-)

  28. oooof! this is great, thanks for the read!
    my rising is aquarius so I guess My chart ruler is uranus, which happens to also be in the 12th!! (my saturn is in aries in the 2nd)
    I guess I have to learn what you did about having the 12th house chart ruler in my life.
    Also, uranus is in retrograde, does that mean anything? and it's in aspect with so many planets! conjunct Neptune, sextile MC, sextile Pluto, opposite Mercury, trine Mars! anything you can make of this?

  32. I have a stellium of my 12th house with Saturn (close to Ascendant in Taurus), Venus (Also Taurus), and the Moon (Aries), as well as my north node (Pisces). Some minor planets include Chiron (Aries), Lilith (Pisces), and Sedna (Pisces). I am a Taurus Ascendant and my 12th house goes through Taurus, Aries, and Pisces. I was told that I have a Neptune ruler of my 12th house which resides in my 7th house in Scorpio. Would Neptune be my "chart" ruler or would it be my "12th house" ruler? Or, would Venus be my chart ruler and Neptune my 12th. What is the significance or rather difference between a house and a chart ruler especially with all the activity going on in my 12th? (By the way - my google account sign in would not allow me to post, I am a female using boyfriend's google account to comment)

  33. Hi Wayman.

    So, I have Scorpio rising. Pluto is in 12th. Mars in 1st (both in Scorpio), conjunct asc by 1 degree. I'll just focus on Pluto. So, there is pluto squares Mercury/sun/venus in 3rd/Aquarius. Pluto also sextile Virgo moon/10th. What can you make of this?

  35. Hi Wayman!

    The condition of your ascendant is eerily similar to mine, and I was hoping you might describe how they manifest differently:

    **Capricorn Ascendant**
    -Sextiles my workaholic MC/Pluto conjunction.
    -Forms Grand Trine with Gemini Sun in 4th & Libra Jupiter Rx in 8th.
    -Uranus/Neptune/Part of Fortune tightly conjunct in 12th, 7 degrees from Ascendant

    **1st House Saturn in Pisces**
    *Apex of a T-Square:
    Sun opposite Pluto (8* orb)
    Sun square Saturn (<1* orb)
    Pluto square Saturn (7* orb)

    Apologies for the length. Thank you for writing this post, and for curating the platform. If you have a moment to shed any light, I'd truly appreciate it.

    Cheers,
    Adam

  39. Very interesting!

    I'm an Aries rising with Mars and Uranus in the 12th house in Aquarius (Mars at 28°58' and Uranus at 21°30'. (They're conjunct with an orb of 7°27' and my 12th house cusp is in Aquarius. )

    My Mars is sesquiquadrate Jupiter in the 4th house (orb 0°13)
    Quintile Mercury in Sag 9th House(orb 0°05)
    Opposite my Juno in Leo 6th House (orb 0°20)
    Sextile my Chiron in Sag 9th House (orb 0°33)
    And square Venus in Sag 8th House (the orb is 7°20' tho, so very very wide.I'm not even sure if I should count that.)
    AND as a BONUS: Trine my Northnode and sextile my Southnode!!! (Orb 1°45')

    Explain me this please, because I already became confused while writing this! xD

  40. Hey Wayman. I'm late to this post, but could you tell me what my movie / life purpose is with Capricorn ascendant like yourself with chart ruler saturn in 8th house conjunct pluto (both in libra, pluto is also in 8th)? I've had a really difficult life, one lacks words to describe it. Thanks.
