Mercury is said to be the ruler of Virgo, but did you know that Mercury is only Virgo’s foster ruling planet? Let me tell you the story about Vulcan…

I first read about Vulcan in Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs when I read the chapter about my Sun Sign, Virgo. In here she mentions the true ruler of Virgo, the hypothetical planet, Vulcan. As a Virgo, I was very intrigued by this as I would like to know what my true ruling planet is.

History of Vulcan

Vulcan was first theorized in the mid 19th century when astronomers stated there might be a small planet within Mercury’s orbit that could be responsible for the peculiar and unique orbit of Mercury. Vulcan was named by Astronomer, Urbain Le Verrier in 1859.

Vulcan has never been officially found. There was an amateur astronomer in 1860 named Edmond Modeste who claimed he observed Vulcan before, however, whether he was being truthful will forever remain a mystery.

It is challenging to discover a planet inside the orbit of Mercury, as the telescope needs to be pointed close to the Sun. In this position, the Sun always illuminated, and an error in pointing the telescope can lead to damage to the eyes of the observer. The light reflections from the Sun through the telescope pointing in this direction can also fool a person into seeing things that do not exist.

The Theory

Some say that Vulcan is purely a theory and that if Mercury’s orbit did contain an additional planet then its orbit would be completely different than what it is now. According to Albert Einstein’s Theory of general relativity, there should be no planet with a significant mass in Mercury’s orbit, apart from a few large asteroids. Others say that Vulcan is an ethereal planet and that it does exist, however not on our plane and dimension, and can only be seen through other dimensions that are not visible to the human eye.

Vulcan's representation in Astrology

In Roman mythology, Vulcan was the God of volcanoes. He was also the blacksmith of the Gods, and he is said to forge new tools and expressions of consciousness. In astrology, Vulcan is the planet that represents the awareness of past patterns and behaviors and how we will improve from it. Vulcan also rules our attachment to our desires and compulsions, and with a well-aspected Vulcan, the native can learn to free themselves from the physical desires that plague them. Our attachment to life and our physical form causes us much pain. Vulcan is the teacher of how the physical force and the spiritual side of us are separate, and how we can learn to separate it. Vulcan is our ability to detach ourselves from the identification of our life form. An evolved Vulcan native will be able to ultimately detach themselves from the desires and compulsion of their physical form.

Vulcan’s Element is Earth. Trying to obtain a balance between the soul’s essence, and the physical form is what it represents. It is said that Vulcan only has one major purpose, and that is to bring a balance between the spirit, and matter. Once that balance is reached in the native, then Vulcan becomes a dead planet, as it does not have any more symbolism or effect other than that. Reorientation of the consciousness from the physical to the spiritual is the main objective and purpose for this planet. Vulcan serves as a transformer, destroying the physical, mental and emotional forms that no longer serve your soul purpose.

Vulcan ruled natives will have an ability to utilize the physical world and matter to make something that can bring the spiritual dimension into this world. This is why Virgo, Vulcan's sign, has the ability to identify things that are unseen or unspoken of and to implement it and create something in this physical world of what was observed. Virgo’s are not fully aware of their capabilities to do this yet, although they already do possess the ability. Until Virgo learns to develop these traits they possess, and until Vulcan gets found, Virgo will be fostered by the dark side of Mercury. While Virgo is ruled by the dark side, they get to see the soul force, however, externalizing it into matter may be a challenge.

The following paragraph regarding Vulcan was written by the famous Astrologer, Linda Goodman, in her book Sun Signs:

“It's important to mention here the still unseen planet Vulcan, the true ruler of Virgo since its discovery is said to be imminent. The discovery of the true ruler of a sign changes the characteristics of those born under it. To give only one example, during the period when both Aquarius and Capricorn were ruled by Saturn, the February born, such as Abraham Lincoln, clearly showed the melancholy traits of that planet. But when Uranus (the symbol of electronics and space, and the true ruler of Aquarius) was Discovered-in its proper time in the universal plan- Aquarians began to reflect qualities of restless discovery, and a more electric, unpredictable, progressive personality such as that of Uranus-ruled Aquarian Franklin D. Roosevelt. Many astrologers feel that Vulcan, the planet of thunder, will become visible through telescopes within a few years. Shortly before or after Vulcan moves close enough to the earth to be seen, Virgos now living, as well as those born in the future, will lose much of the Mercurial pressure that causes the present nervous strain. Mercury is more compatible with the airy sign of Gemini than with the earthy Virgo. The thunderous Vulcan will also give to Virgos their astrological inheritance of courage and confidence and will release many of the typical Virgo inhibitions. After Vulcan is discovered, the last remaining planet to be identified, according to ancient predictions, is 'Apollo, the true ruler of Taurus. Then each Sun sign will answer to the vibrations of its rightful ruler-twelve signs and twelve heavenly bodies. It's interesting to note that Vulcan, in Greek mythology, is the lame god with the brilliant mind. Many Virgos have a slight limp, or else some peculiar and unusual quality to the walk or posture. “ - Linda Goodman, Sun Signs

The initiator of the soul's essence

When Vulcan has served its purpose in the native, they will become a disciple, where they possess inner enlightenment and are able to solve problems with the highest possible level of consciousness. This will be a very wise person, a “soul” centered person. This person will use their higher understanding to be at the service of humanity, as opposed to self-gain.

Once Vulcan has completed its purpose, the energies of Uranus will become very prominent in the native, that of higher understanding and humanitarianism. In Esoteric Astrology, Vulcan is the ruler of Taurus, as esoterically Taurus is associated with opening your third eye. In traditional astrology, it remains the true ruler of Virgo. Nowadays, Vulcan is only used in esoteric and soul-centered astrology, due to its “unofficial” status.

In a strong position in a chart, Vulcan can help shape a person who does not get driven by their egoistic desires, and they align themselves with their primal energy and spiritual purpose. In Astrology, it is noted that the position of Vulcan will always be right next to the Sun, and in the space between Mercury and the Sun. It is said that Vulcan is located within 8 degrees of the Sun.

Some speculate that the UB13 (Eris) planet that was discovered in 2005 could be Vulcan, however, this is unlikely as its position is not between Mercury and this Sun, however, it is possible. Eris is the 9th biggest mass orbiting our Sun, and the 16th biggest overall taking into consideration the size of the moons of the other planets. Very little information exists on this planet as there hasn't been any voyagers or spacecraft send to its location.

Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell is an American singer, songwriter, and model. She gained a following in 2016 when she released her debut single "Ocean Eyes" on audio distribution platform SoundCloud, subsequently released on the record labels Darkroom and Interscope Records.

I am a huge fan of Billie Eilish. I find her to be rather incredible, as she is incredibly unique and talented. She possesses a childlike innocence, and her creativity and is out of this world. She is rather inspiring and her Natal Chart has intrigued me and sparked my curiosity as an Astrologer.

I always enjoy analyzing celebrity charts and I have decided to start a celebrity chart analysis series. I will be writing about celebrity charts through this blog, and I will also be doing chart analysis videos through my YouTube channel.

Sagittarius Sun

Billie Eilish was born on December 18th, 2001, at 11:30 AM in Los Angeles, United States.

She is a Sagittarius Sun, which explains her big, almost unavoidable energy and influence. She is the kind of girl that you will definitely not miss if she is in a crowd. Jupiter ruled people are usually like this, where they have big and expandable personalities. A well-aspected Jupiter person, such as Billie, will just grow and get bigger and better. Having such positive aspects in Sagittarius, it is no wonder she is a master at expressing herself through music.

The Sun also represents your father in Astrology and having a Sun in such a strong position means that her father, Patrick O’Connel, had a very significant impact in her life. He was the one who taught her music, and he had a big influence on who she is today.

Sagittarius Midheaven

Her Sun is very strong in her chart as it conjuncts her Midheaven, Venus, and Mercury. A Sun Conjunct Midheaven person is usually destined for greatness. Their talents and presence on this earth cannot go unnoticed. The Midheaven is also the point that starts the 10th house, which is the house of Sagittarius. Billie has her Midheaven in Sagittarius, which means she strives to be big, impressionable and to have a massive influence on this earth.

Sagittarius Stellium

She has an extremely powerful Stellium in Sagittarius. This Stellium is in the 9th and tenth house, with her Midheaven in the middle. This aspect I believe is what gives her the power to be as famous and impressionable as she is. A strong Midheaven also indicates a person who wants to be impressionable and usually accomplishes their goals. When they have an idea, they dont sit on it and act immediately.

Pisces Rising

She has a Pisces Rising. Pisces Rising people are like chameleons. They also tend to look rather unusual and otherworldly, hence her unique appearance. They can adapt to any situation or person, which means she is extremely versatile and adaptable. Pisces Rising people are also incredibly sensitive, and they blend and mold to fit the role that the person they are interacting with will feel comfortable with. This means she is rather perceptive as well and quite aware of other people. She can pick up which face she needs to show in which situation, and she blends and adapts herself to suit and fit in. This aspect is quite prominent as you can see she has many different sides to her, and she can adapt any kind of role, be it one of an innocent child, or that of a more dark, deep person.

Mutable and Masculine Dominant

The Mutable quality is dominant in her chart which indicates she is extremely adaptable, and not too stubborn. This can also make it slightly challenging for her to focus on one thing and might possess a short attention span. She also has most of her planets in masculine signs, which indicates she leans more toward being an extrovert as opposed to an introvert. She likes to externalize her ideas, thus her extreme creativity.

Mars in Pisces

Her Mars is in Pisces in the 12th house. Mars represents how a person acts, what their willpower is, and what drives them. A Pisces Mars makes a person very gentle and passive. Her actions are more based on her emotions, as opposed to logic and she likes to follow her heart. She also will not be forceful in her nature and be quite sensitive and understanding, as Pisces grants a person a higher level of understanding. In Billie's case, a water Mars can soften her ability to be strong and act headstrong. As she is still young, a lot of her decisions and choices are made by her parents, however as she grows older she will have to learn how to make the right decisions, as logic does need to be implemented to some extent when making decisions, and one cannot completely rely on the heart. It can also be challenging to stand up for yourself with this aspect, and the native will hold in their anger. Billie might have a tendency to internalize all her anger and frustration.

Venus Conjunct Pluto

She has her Venus in a conjunction with her Pluto, which determines her “shock” factor. Pluto is a shocking, intense, deep and dark planet, and when it conjuncts Venus, which is the planet that represents how we interact with the world and with others, the native can enjoy shocking the people they come into contact with. They love to leave their mark, and to leave people thinking “Wow, that person is out of this world!”. These natives do not want to be ordinary, and they live to shock the world, and possess a unique, “WOW” factor. Pluto has very strong placements in her chart, and this is what influences her “darker” lyrics and music style. What I like most about Billie, is how she makes use of creativity to gain fame and recognition, while most other young female artists like to objectify themselves to gain success. I have huge respect for Billie because she does not do this.

Jupiter in 4th house Cancer

She has her Jupiter in Cancer and in the 4th house of family which indicates a strong, positive upbringing. When Jupiter is in the 4th house and in Cancer, the native was given opportunity in their early home life to grow and expand themselves. Their family helped them grow. Billie was home schooled, and she was given a lot of time and space to be creative. Her parents believed that it is very important for a creative to have time for their creations, and to work on their talent. Her early family life allowed her to learn, grow and expand herself. She grows through her home and family. One can say it is thanks to them that she is who she is today.

Saturn Square Ascendant

It is said that Billie doesn't like to smile, and this can be due to her Saturn Square her ascendant. With this aspect, the person does not always like to express their emotions to others in their face but prefer making use of other means to express themselves, such as music or art. Her Saturn Squares her Sun which also indicates she has a more serious appearance and image, as opposed to a playful and carefree disposition.

Mercury in Capricorn

Her Mercury is in Capricorn, which means inside her mind it isn't all fun and games as it might seem. She is very serious-minded and very ambitious. Capricorn Mercury natives have their eyes on the prize, and success is ALWAYS on their mind. Reaching a high social status is something they want, and being successful is definitely something Billie deeply desires.

The 12th House

Her 12th house is very strong, as it contains her Moon, Neptune and Uranus. The 12th house rules creativity. This house symbolizes undercurrents and otherworldly forces, and when this is a well-aspected house the native will be blessed with creative energies from all dimensions. Billies creative ability is being given to her through the universe, and she subconsciously expels creative energy without even realizing it! This basically means that she doesn't even have to try to be creative, and it just flows through her!

Descendant in Virgo

Lastly, her descendant and 7th house is in Virgo which indicates that she prefers to surround herself with well organized and structured people. She prefers interacting with level headed and logical people.
