If you’ve been hearing or reading about “Uranus Dominant” birth charts, and are both intrigued and confused, don’t worry. I’m laying out everything you need to know about Uranus dominance, from what it is to what it means.
Do you know 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 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.
Uranus Meaning in Astrology
Uranus transcends normal, everyday thinking. The planet is concerned with the higher mind, and rules over the intuition and imagination. Often considered the bohemian’s planet, Uranus wants us to expand our perception, destroy old ideologies, and revolutionize our world and day-to-day lives.
In Astrology, Uranus is the Great Awakener. It’s the planet of “Aha!” moments and revelations, and inspires sudden insight or epiphanies about pretty much anything. Sometimes, these epiphanies turn out to be major ones. Like a lightning bolt from heaven, Uranus can strike you with an ingenious idea any time, anywhere.
Uranus Dominant Meaning
With Uranus as your Dominant planet, you’re inspired to change the world. Radical and inventive in all that you do, your mind is well-informed and always zooming towards the future. You aim to be progressive in your pursuits, and want to shake things up (and often shock people ) with your progressive ideas and eccentric antics. There’s a powerful longing to define your individuality on your own terms. This is why you’re often separated from the pack, either by your physical appearance and style, or by your ideas / interests. Even so, you’re always searching for the place you feel you truly belong.
Here’s how to know if you’re Uranus Dominant:
- You have an Aquarius stellium or 11th House stellium (Uranus rules both Aquarius and the 11th House)
- You have many planets aspecting your natal Uranus. Sun trine/sextile/square Uranus, Uranus conjunct Jupiter, Uranus square Mars, etc.
- You are an Aquarius Sun / Aquarius Rising, or have Uranus on the Ascendant
