What are Planetary Rulers? And do they empower your personality?
Well, each day and month we live the seasons change and the years pass. Yet, it's amazing! How much we depend on the earth and eight other planets to revolve around the sun with order and precision.
As a matter of fact, astronomers are capable of calculating exactly where each planet will be at a specific time in space. Oh! Yeah! It's extraordinary! When you consider how the sun, moon, and planets are set in a particular position at the time of your birth.
In fact, many astrologers believe that the exact position of the planets at your time of birth may not be repeated for millions of years. Wow! This would make your astrological birth chart as unique as your fingerprint.
More importantly, it is understood that the various planets and their positions within your birth chart have definite power and influence on your personality. You might say, how is this possible?
Well, each sign of the Zodiac has a relationship or partnership with a planet. The planet is referred too as the "Planetary Ruler." The Planetary Ruler imparts certain qualities, abilities, or powers to a zodiac sign.
For example, Jupiter is the Planetary Ruler over the Sagittarius sign. Therefore, the Sagittarius personality is empowered by the planet Jupiter. So, what are the powers of Jupiter?

Overall, Sagittarius is an outspoken, happy-go-lucky, free thinking sign that will show flashes of intuition. They even know how to smile through all adversities.
Oftentimes, they will demonstrate the power of changing negative situations with their optimistic personalities.
