Definition of Ruling Planet

The ruling planet in your birth chart isn’t your Sun sign! Your ruling planet — also called the chart ruler is the planet that rules your rising sign. This is why the time of birth is so important when calculating the birth chart, as without the time and place of birth, it’s nearly impossible to determine what the rising sign is, and therefore what the chart rulership is.
