Zodiac Sign Wheel: Order, Images, Signs
If you’re ever had your birth chart read by an astrologer (or you’ve done a DIY reading!), you know the chart is actually a zodiac sign wheel divided into 12 sections. These 12 sections are called houses. Each house is ruled by one of the 12 zodiac signs and focuses on different life topics such as identity, home, career, or relationships.
Your individual chart’s house placements might vary because they’re based on your exact birth date, time, and location. However, understanding the zodiac sign wheel order, images, and signs they’re ruled by can help you better understand your chart.
Here, we have the astrological wheel—including all 12 signs of the zodiac: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and so on.
Signs of the Zodiac
Zodiac Wheel Order
Aries: 1st House
Fiery Aries rules the first House, associated with the self, identity, personality, and self-expression. It’s all about who you are. This house is also where you find your rising sign.
Taurus: 2nd House
Taurus lives in the second House of money, personal finance, and your material and physical environment. This House also covers your sense of self-worth and self-esteem.
Gemini: 3rd House
The third house ruled by Gemini focuses on all forms of communication, including talking, emailing, social media, and digital devices. It also includes siblings and local traveling.
Cancer: 4th House
The fourth House is your foundation and your roots. It touches on your home, parents, family, lineage, and privacy.
Leo: 5th House
In true Leo fashion, the fifth House is all about pleasure, fun, play, creativity, romance, children, and good fortune.
Virgo: 6th House
The sixth house deals with all things health-related, such as your wellness routines, self-care, and physical and mental wellbeing. And, thanks to Virgo energy, this House also thrives on scheduling, time management, and organization.
Libra: 7th House
This is the house of relationships and partnerships, romantic and otherwise. It also incorporates contracts, marriages, and negotiations.
Scorpio: 8th House
Mysterious Scorpio vibes are infused in the eighth House that rules birth, death, transformation, sex, and all things supernatural.
Sagittarius: 9th House
The ninth House encompasses all things travel and not just literally traveling around the world but also traveling of the mind via education and the journeys we go on as humans.
Capricorn: 10th House
The tenth house ruled by Capricorn is about your career, reputation, popularity, how the public sees you, achievements, and the legacy you’re leaving behind.
Aquarius: 11th House
Aquarius in the 11th House focuses on friendships and the people who uplift and support you in your life. It’s also connected to community and humanitarian work.
Pisces: 12th House
And last but certainly not least, Pisces in the 12th House rules the unconscious—all the things that aren’t materialized in the physical realm, such as our shadows, secrets, desires, and emotions.
