planetary ruler | element | modality
planetary ruler - venus
each sign is ruled by a planet. and the planets in your chart are functions and forces within you.
venus symbolizes beauty, love, pleasure and your relationship with yourself and others. venus represents the yin, the feminine and relates to the psychology of listening. in the natal chart, venus indicates the types of relationships you value and attract, how you create balance and harmony in everything and anything you do (relationships, your home, and environment.) venus also influences the type of relaxation and pleasure you seek and enjoy.
venus rules 2 signs: taurus + libra. taurus (the yin or inner expression/side of venus) represents your essential needs and values. it embodies your sensual nature, self worth and assets (both inner and outer). on the other hand, libra, connects you to the "other"and how you relate to others.
element - earth
the earth element is yin in nature, meaning its expression is inward; energy moving toward its center.
earth energy embodies the grounded energy of creativity, practicality and resilience. it's a fertile + passive energy that relates to the world on a physical level. physical/body needs are important as is material security. pragmatic routines + sensuality energizes earth signs and too much movement, sudden change + an emphasis on emotions can deplete it.
taurus represents earth energy that is natural, fertile and lush.
modality - fixed
the modality of a sign describes how that sign moves through the world.
fixed signs give value, meaning and purpose to the cardinal signs that precede them on the zodiac wheel. so, taurus, gives value and meaning to aries' actions. fixed signs have an affinity for the planning and building phase of creative projects. they value reliability, consistency, predictability and stamina. too much change throws them off. fixed signs tend to be focused, loyal, stable, predictable and consistent but they can also be stubborn and resistant to change.
