Moon Dominant: what it is and what it means for your zodiac signs

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.

Moon Dominant souls live in the land of the emotions, and are connected with the psychic sensitivities that exist there. Their character is imaginative, receptive, nurturing, and dependent on the mood and tenor of their present atmosphere. Cycling between periods of inactivity and isolation, they learn to draw on their own instincts to evolve and ultimately procreate.

Moon Dominance in the Signs:

Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)

Your imagination & intuition are elevated to amazing heights, and you are able to envision extraordinary things. You have more sensitivity of self, and sensitivity towards others which pushes you in contradicting directions. Because the usual fearless independence is diluted a bit, you have many romantic dreams of the future possibilities with a sidekick or partner. You are a merciful leader, and easily hurt, but steadfast & resolute, somewhat shy, but creatively talented.

Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)

You are concerned with your home and family, and feeling cozy. Like Mother Nature, you embrace the mystical and practical sides of your self, and when you listen to your instincts, you can accomplish great feats. But you are firmly attached to your roots and the past, that is why family is important to you, it is what nursed you to help you grow into yourself, and you feel it is directly entwined with your identity. You are nostalgic, cautious, but capable of nourishing yourself.

Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)

You are psychologists, reliant on personal exchanges to feed both your mind and imagination. You instinctively understand human behaviors, and are able to balance your feelings and your logic. You have a great memory, and superb intelligence, though it can be clouded by feelings of doubt and introspection. You can discriminate between feelings with both concern and curiosity, and will be great help to friends seeking advice.

Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)

Your emotions infiltrate every fiber of your being, and you rely heavily on your intuition to guide you towards doing the right thing. You are perceptive, and sensitive to the auras around people, and both mystical and mysterious. There are sneaking suspicions about people that transform into overpowering gut instincts, and eventually into positive or negative romantic feelings. You are maternal towards everyone you grow to love, and capable of sacrificing yourself for the sake of love.
