The planet Mercury rules two signs: Gemini and Virgo. Mercury moves around the zodiac so quickly that, as it makes its away around the Sun ahead of us, it appears to be moving backwards at times.

This masculine planet of action brings intensity to wherever it goes.

Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius and the ancient ruler of Pisces, a sign over which it still holds sway. Sagittarians love a good time and a good gamble, while Pisceans are prone to grand visions of the way life should be, each sign reflecting the nature of Jupiter, named after the Roman king of the gods.

Uranus was determined to be the planet of uprisings and revolutions, being discovered around the time of the French Revolution and just after the American Revolution. It was assigned rulership over Aquarius.
Neptune was discovered in the middle of the nineteenth century and was observed to have a strong connection to photography and strong drink, illusions and the birth of psychoanalysis.
