The allocation of sign rulership does not appear to be arbitrary. But still the planets and signs are related by what is known as sign rulership. Aries and Scorpio are ruled by Mars. Venus rules Taurus and Libra. Mercury governs Gemini and Virgo.

 

The Moon owns Cancer. The Sun is the lord of Leo. Jupiter governs Pisces and Sagittarius. Capricorn and Aquarius are ruled by Saturn. Leo and Ketu rules Scorpio and finally Rahu owns Leo and Ketu owns Scorpio.

 

1. Benefic and Malefic: Planets are benefic and malefic according to their inherent nature. They tend to do good or evil. Jupiter, Venus, Full Moon and well associated Mercury are held to be good planets. New Moon, badly associated Mercury, the Sun, Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu are evil or malefic ones. From the eighth day of the lunar month the Moon is full and strong. Moon is weak from the eighth day of the dark half.

 

2. Sexes: Jupiter, Mars and the Sun are the males; Venus, Rahu and the Moon are the females whereas Saturn, Mercury and Ketu are the hermaphrodites. This helps us to determine the sex of the child in the birth horoscope and the sex of the person involved if it is a horary chart.

 

3. Colors: Each planet represents a certain color. The significance of planetary colors are as follows: Sun – Copper, Mars – Blood Red, Moon – White, Saturn – Black, Mercury – Green, Jupiter – Bright Yellow and Venus – a mixture of all colors.

4. Planetary Nature: The Sun, Moon and the Jupiter are divine in nature and indicate Satvikaguna or philosophical and philanthropic dispositions.

Again, the Sun represents ego or atma; the Moon manas or mind, Mars martial power; Mercury good and eloquent speech; Jupiter indicates wisdom; Venus shows voluptuousness and gross sensual pleasures and finally Saturn indicates sorrows and miseries.

This should not however be confused with the caste system.
