What makes a House 'Dominant'? 

Dominant Houses are the houses in which the most planets or the most significant planetary configurations are located in our birth chart.  Essentially, the more going on in a house, the more 'power' that house gains in significance.

Understanding our Dominant Houses provides valuable insights into our strengths, weaknesses, desires, and motivations. They can show us and where we are likely to make the most impact in this life, and possibly the most financial gain.

12th House Dominant

The 12th House in astrology governs the hidden realms of our life, such as the subconscious mind, dreams, karma, and spirituality. It's the house that deals with the unseen, the mystical, and the spiritual.

Apart from the subconscious, the 12th House is about isolation, introspection, and the search for deeper truths. It drives our style of solitude, shapes our relationship with the divine, and fuels our need to understand the unseen aspects of our existence.

If your 12th House is dominant, you likely possess a strong spiritual inclination and a deep desire for introspection and solitude. You may find yourself drawn to metaphysical studies or have an innate understanding of the unseen aspects of life.

You might also be quite sensitive and intuitive, able to perceive things beyond the physical plane.  You should look into Remote Viewing - it's a structured way of organizing your intuitive impressions.  (If the 12th House truly is your dominant House, then learning the protocol for Remote Viewing ((the traditional 'Controlled Remote Viewing' protocol developed by the US Army and CIA)) could bring you more clarity with all of the thoughts floating in your head.  (YouTube "controlled remote viewing" and hopefully this link still works: Banned Ted Talk from Russel Targ, PhD., Laser Physicist.
