The Zodiac and Rules

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

You can also read dozens additional lifestyle articles on different topics.

Rules and Aries

Rules and Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

You are not too fond of rules. The fly in the ointment is that they have been issued by others, and that you are eager to do as you please. As you become mature, you learn that this character trait may get you into trouble as you may be labelled as a rebel, in particular.

In some areas, you are very inclined to take risks, or you refuse to play the game. For instance, to respect speed limits on the road, or to queue up for too long at an administration desk. All this may get you over the edge or at least irritate you. Fortunately, such outbursts are quickly forgotten, and you rapidly start again with a clean plate.

Some Aries Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Aries, Aries rising, or Mars dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 1st House.

Rules and Taurus

Rules and Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

You acknowledge that rules are necessary for life in society. Therefore, you need to evolve in a well-established setting, without grey areas. Some things are allowed, and some are forbidden. You are reliable, and you do not try to interpret rules to your liking, but for example you may stumble over a point which does not suit you. In this case, we wish a great deal of courage to whoever wants to convince you. He will need time and quite a lot of patience.

Besides, you have the same slightly distrustful attitude when it comes to the evolution of rules or the removal of prohibitions. You are not among those who fly too close to the sun by starting a project before everything has been thoroughly checked.

Some Taurus Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Taurus, Taurus rising, or Venus dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 2nd House.

Rules and Gemini

Rules and Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

You adjust the rules to fit your very personal interpretation. It must be admitted that as far as minor regulations are concerned, you enjoy circumventing their codes, for instance jumping over fences to gain access to a parc temporary closed to the public, entering through a window into a locked house, or taking the bus without a valid ticket.

In general, your little mean tricks make people laugh. Besides, it must be said that you are the first person who takes them lightly, and that you are gifted enough to find good excuses if you happen to get caught.

Some Gemini Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Gemini, Gemini rising, or Mercury dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 3rd House.

Rules and Cancer

Rules and Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

The way you react to authority figures is quite singular. They immediately take you back to your relationships with your parents or a former teacher when you were a child. You become petrified, unable to reason clearly, and you blindly obey those who tell you what to do and how to do it.

In some cases, this may be quite comfortable, since you assume no responsibility. However, in some other circumstances, you may be destabilized. Even though you are not guilty, there you are, shaking, unsettled, and submissive. You need to learn to strengthen your self-assurance.

Some Cancer Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Cancer, Cancer rising, or the Moon dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 4th House.

Rules and Leo

Rules and Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Because you appreciate to be in a well-known setting, and above all, if possible, to find yourself at the top of the social ladder, you understand well what is at stake when it comes to authority. You consider that the qualities of those who issue orders or lay down rules deserve your support.

You even secretly dream of becoming the person who takes on this role. Not only would you be able to do as you like, but you imagine perfectly well leading a society ruled by all your laws. A little dictator is perhaps lying dormant in you, who knows!

Some Leo Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Leo, Leo rising, or the Sun dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 5th House.

Rules and Virgo

Rules and Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

You believe that rules are indispensable to determine your share of freedom. Owing to this rational attitude, usually, you are not caught off guard. On the one side, you know them, and on the other side, you approach with calm, flexibility, and adaptability the situations where you are requested to obey.

At school already, your teachers loved you, because you respected their authority, even when they were not around. Actually, you think that the world would be much better if everyone played the game. Rules exist for a reason; they reflect a nice natural order and stem from good sense. Without them, our society would be in real chaos.

Some Virgo Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Virgo, Virgo rising, or Mercury dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 6th House.

These texts about the sign of Virgo and Mercury might interest you.

Rules and Libra

Rules and Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

You belong to a signed focused on social matters, and you understand quickly the usefulness of rules which are there to facilitate life in society. As a matter of fact, you abide by them with a smile, and even with a dash of hypocrisy as scandalmongers certainly say. Indeed, since you dislike conflicts, respect for authority seems to you a good way to avoid them.

Moreover, you support justice. Therefore, you are aware that its little constraints normally match the objective that everyone benefits from it. All in all, you are a fairly good person in terms of capacity for obedience.

Some Libra Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Libra, Libra rising, or Venus dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 7th House.

These texts about the sign of Libra and Venus might interest you.

Rules and Scorpio

Rules and Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

It is obvious that in general you hardly accept authority, except when you impose it. In fact, it may occur that you admire those who behave according to the principle that might makes right. In all cases, you tend to follow two radically different paths depending on your basic temperament.

If you are more of the rebellious sort, you create a scandal, and you have no taboos. If instead, you are more introverted, you are absolutely able to circumvent the rules, but this time by cleverly concealing your intentions. Anyway, you often achieve your goals, i.e. you assert your viewpoint and implement it.

Some Scorpio Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Scorpio, Scorpio rising, or Pluto dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 8th House.

Rules and Sagittarius

Rules and Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Although obedience to laws or to people is not the type of things you like, you fight for your position with a laid-back attitude and a smile. In a friendly way, you set out your arguments, and you mention examples enriched by your large knowledge or by various experiences. There is always in you a kind of wild horse which remains hard to bridle, but you hide nothing.

You would be able to pretend that you are a foreigner who knows neither the habits nor the system, when they do not suit you. Nevertheless, a certain opportunism prompts you to fiercely defend rules serving your cause, at least for a while.

Some Sagittarius Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, or Jupiter dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 9th House.

These texts about the sign of Sagittarius and Jupiter might interest you.

Rules and Capricorn

Rules and Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

You adore rules. Ideally, you would certainly be able to efficiently edict a large number of them. On the one hand, you are honest, and on the other, you believe that advantages and other rewards must be deserved. Therefore, it is important to set a framework so that everyone faces the same challenges.

You are also the champion of patience and tenacity, or to wait your turn, when it comes to respect procedures set by authorities. You consider that obedience is part of the process which allows you climb the ladder and to finally have a clear conscience when you reach the top.

Some Capricorn Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Capricorn, Capricorn rising, or Saturn dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 10th House.

These texts about the sign of Capricorn and Saturn might interest you.

Rules and Aquarius

Rules and Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Of all the signs, you are the one who finds it the most difficult to put up with obedience and hierarchy. In your opinion, rules have little importance. They are meant to be discussed, circumvented, if possible, improved, or better, replaced by new ones. As you constantly wish for a different world, you are prepared to carry out any experiment.

Anarchy may even be a tempting lifestyle. Or, paradoxically, you may be willing to follow a charismatic leader without realizing that he will take you into an alternative form of dictatorship or of constraints. Actually, your interest is to find a wise compromise with authority.

Some Aquarius Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Aquarius, Aquarius rising, or Uranus dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 11th House.

These texts about the sign of Aquarius and Uranus might interest you.

Rules and Pisces

Rules and Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

You sigh in advance whenever the word "rules" is mentioned. In your opinion, it is better that you trust your intuition and be guided… in the good direction of the flow. Indeed, the prospect of reading precise provisions, or to obey diktats that you do not understand – or that you do not feel like understanding – just for the sake of respecting the order of things, is totally beyond your grasp.

As the last sign of the zodiac, you are definitely one of the most difficult to define. Elusive, sometimes evasive, distracted, shifty or even deeply craftly so as not to commit yourself, you easily find all the subterfuges so as not to violate the law. It seems that the proverb "You can take a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink" has been coined for you.

Some Pisces Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Pisces, Pisces rising, or Neptune dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 12th House.
