Whatever your astrological sign is, you have a very favorable birth planet, also called your dominant planet. It has powers you need to understand to find your true path in life, develop your personality, find your hidden talents, and, above all, express your true nature each day. Knowing more about your dominant planet is one of the keys to success and a better life.
Each Planet Brings Qualities and Strengths
For astrologists, there are ten planets, aside from Earth. They include Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, as well as the Sun and the Moon, two celestial bodies that astrologists consider planets.
Depending on your astrological sign, you’re governed by one or more dominant planets.
Below you’ll find the characteristics and qualities of the 10 planets, each of which emits specific vibrations that influence all the signs it’s connected to in different ways.
In other words, a planet will not necessarily produce the same effects and benefits for all signs.
The dominance of a planet has its good and bad sides.
What follows is a list of the dominant planets, and how they impact the signs they’re linked to. Find out which planet(s) you’re affected by, then exploit its qualities, and restrain or transform its negative aspects into advantages.
Being aware of the characteristics of your dominant planet(s), along with those of your astrological sign, can go a long way towards helping you make positive changes in your life.
