Did you know that planets characterize you more than your sign ?For astrologers, typologies aren't characterized by the solar sign but by one or several planets that are called "dominant". For example if in your birth chart Mars is the most important planet (because of its extremely important position and its aspects to luminaries or angular houses), Mars will be your dominant planet. This characteristic doesn't necessarily depend on your solar sign. That same solar sign is another element amongst others in the determination of the dominant planet. Consequently we can be "Martian" without being an Aries or a Scorpio (Mars is connected to those two signs). We can then say that we can have the personality of an Aries (which means being typically "Martian") even though we were born in another sign ! We can find out about planetary dominants thanks to an astrological study of your birth chart.
