Signs of 'Joy'

- the preferred sign placement of the traditional planets, which apart from the luminaries govern two signs each. This is based upon agreement with gender, one of the considerations of hayz.

Saturn is a masculine planet and so prefers the masculine sign of Aquarius to Capricorn. For the same reason Jupiter prefers Sagittarius to Pisces, and Mars prefers Aries to Scorpio. Venus is feminine and so prefers Taurus to Libra, while Mercury, although common to both genders, prefers Virgo to Gemini because it most closely maintains its natural relationship with the Sun.

Preferred rulerships of the planets
