Sun Dominant: what it is and what it means for your zodiac sign

Sun dominant souls are celebrities of spirit who shine confidence on the world, but they also lean …

It is a little known fact that the astrological personality is layered. Sundae-like, planetary and zodiac energies pile one on top of the other until there is a cherry on top: the Dominant Planet. Not to be confused with the chart ruler, the Dominant Planet is the planet that– either due to a stellium in the planet’s natural house, or it making a high number of aspects to other planets –calls the shots in your chart and imbues you with its planetary energies. These energies lay the path of your destiny.

Sun dominant souls are celebrities of spirit who shine confidence on the world, but they also lean towards megalomania. You have a sense of importance, and a desire to fulfill a destiny of distinction, to truly define yourselves as creative individuals. You will be magnetic & magnanimous, bold, proud, loyal, and possess an impressive will power. There is also a marked need to perform so the world can recognize your inner star.
