Is there a power ranking for astrology planets?
The Sun and Moon obviously are the top.

Nothing that automatically or always applies. No Sun and Moon are not necessarily the strongest planets, and often actually are not.
The strongest planet will be a planet that is the Focal planet of a T-square .. if there is a T-square in the chart.
The second strongest fator will be any planet that is conjunct any of the 4 "angles" (the Ascendant, the Nadir/I.C., the Descendant, or the Midheaven/M.C.)
After that it will be the planet which rules the Sign on the Ascendant.
After that, any planet which has much more aspects to other planets than any of the other planets.
Finally, if none of these apply, you would look at the Sun and Moon.
But THE strongest feature in the chart is the "repeated theme" and most charts will have that. For instance, a chart that has Scorpio Rising, Pluto conjunct the Midheaven, 4 planets IN the 8th house, and 2 of those planets sextile to Pluto. This person has a strong Pluto-Scorpio-8th House theme to their personality, and that will be FAR stronger than their Sun or Moon.
