Let’s begin with learning how to find out which planet is your dominant in astrology!

People who have a Uranus dominant natal chart are sometimes called Uranians.

It is important to note that Uranus is a generational planet. This means that its importance on a personal level is seen through its position by houses more than by signs. Large groups of people share the same Uranus sign, as because of its long orbital period.

Uranus Dominant Planet Appearance
What does the Uranus dominant appearance look like, according to astrology?
In the birth chart, the ascendant and the first house describe your physical appearance. The more contact Uranus has with them, the stronger it affects your look. Uranus conjunct the ascendant is the most powerful aspect from this perspective.
It is important that other planets in aspect to the ascendant, planets in the first house, and of course, the rising sign all influence what a person looks like. As always with astrology, especially with cookbook astrology, these are general guidelines rather than an exact description. Our genetics is the main factor, and planets just slightly modify it.

When there are severe afflictions in the birth chart, the person can be self-destructive. They have authority issues and cannot fit in, and in the end, they become lonely outcasts. Anger issues can also happen. Outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) can be dangerous when they get out of control.

You can’t stand being told what to do. If something doesn’t make sense to you, you won’t do it unless you absolutely have too. Uranus dominant people love to break the rules.
