Did you know that your appearance is influenced by many planetary combinations and not just your rising sign? In today’s article I will explore how each zodiac sign impacts certain physical features in our personal appearance. Remember to not only check your Sun or rising sing, but also your Moon sign. If you have a stellium (three or more planets) in one of the 12 zodiac signs, then also read the interpretation of that sign.

Since Aries rules the head, there is almost always something remarkable about the face, especially the eyes, the forehead or the eyebrows that stand out. The complexion tends to be reddish, dusk red. Sharp features with high cheekbones, the jaw/face is narrow. Often the hair is either blonde or red with a v-shape hairline. Men tend to turn bold with age. However, this isn’t always the case. The genes play an essential role in the process too. The nose is either narrow and hooked, prominent or upturned and with nostrils exposed. There are often moles, scars or freckles on the face.
Taurus rules the lower jaw, lower teeth, tongue, ears, neck and tonsils. With Venus being the ruling planet, people with prominent Taurus in their birth chart often have a soft appearance of their face. There is a tendency towards lower face fullness. The lips are often full and the nostrils wide. Large and warm hands and feet are often a common trait too. When it comes to the hair, it is usually soft and thick. The neck is thick, and the shoulders broad. In men’s appearance, Adam’s apple may be evident too.
Gemini rules arms, shoulders, lungs and fingers. People with prominent Gemini in their chart frequently use their hands when communicating with others or getting their message across. They often like wearing bracelets and rings. Their eyes are twinkling and sparkling, and the shoulders broad, with a reddish or dark complexion. They can’t stay still for too long. The hair is fine and thin. In males, there is a tendency towards baldness.
Cancer rules breasts, rib cage and stomach. There are two types of physical appearance for this water sign. The first one is a full moon type distinguished by a round face, a flat profile and full lips. The shoulders are small, and so are the hands and the feet. The hairline is rounded with deep-set eyes. The second one is the new moon type, often relatively slender, with big sad eyes and a long narrow face.
Leo rules the hearth and the back. With a dominant Leo in the birth chart, the face is angular with large eyes, high cheekbones, and a reddish complexion. The lips are usually full with a flashed complexion. The head is often large with a pronounced chin. The nostrils are flaring, and the body temperature is warm. Males tend to be bald. The shoulders are usually broad, and the hips narrow. The body is overall muscular, and the voice is strong.
Virgo, ruled by Mercury, is connected to the intestines and the immune system. The hair is fine with a prominent Virgo, prone to premature greyness. The body is dry and with a tendency towards dehydration. The lips are long and thin, while the nose is often long, narrow, and pointy. The complexion is dark. The head and hands are relatively small, but the body is well proportioned.
Libra, ruled by Venus, governs the kidneys and the lower back. The head and face are usually oval, occasionally round. The forehead and upper head are round. The voice is pleasant to the ear. The face is sweet looking, with pretty eyes. The nose is usually petite or tiny. The hair is shiny and lovely in touch. The hands are narrow and long.
Scorpio, ruled by Mars and Pluto, governs our genitals, sweat glands and nose. The hair is often thick with a prominent Scorpio in the birth chart, eyebrows joined or v-shaped. The nose is often unique, and the voice is low. There is a tendency towards acne, scars and excessive sweating. The bones are thick and strong. Scorpio can make one have a very intense facial expression. It is often hard to read the mood of Scorpio people because the face is not expressive.
Sagittarius rules hips, thighs and buttocks. With a prominent Sagittarius in the birth chart, the legs are long and attractive with a high waist. The smile is big, often with big teeth and a loud cheerful laugh. The nose is usually straight and long. Hair is long and straight.
Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, governs knees, bones, joints, skin and nails. Capricorn often produces well-proportioned features and a clean look, lean and slender face with a narrow chin and a long small neck. The head is usually small, so are the lips. The bones are strong, while the fingers are long with prominent joints. Skin, nail and gum problems are common. The hair is often white or pale, especially if Capricorn is rising.
Aquarius, ruled by Saturn and Uranus, governs the ankles and the blood circulation of the blood. With a prominent Aquarius in the birth chart, the face and the neck is long with a clear complexion. The head is large and oval with a very high forehead. There is usually something unusual about these types: interesting clothing style or usual hairstyle. The hair is fine or fizzy, often difficult to manage. The voice is intelligent.
Pisces, ruled by Jupiter and Neptune, governs feet, toes and the immune system. With a strong Pisces influence in the birth chart, the eyes are usually large, and so is the face with a pale complexion. The eyes are sweet and dreamy, and the lips are full and loose. The voice is soft, and there is often something unusual about the shoes and foot. Either the foot shape is unique, or the shoe taste is extraordinary.
