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.

7th House Dominant

Known as the "House of Partnerships," the 7th House in astrology governs all forms of partnerships including marriage, business relationships, contracts, legalities, negotiations and agreements. It also represents how we generally relate to others in face-to-face scenarios.

Apart from partnerships, the 7th House is about achieving a sense of balance and fairness. It drives our need for relationships, both personal and professional, and signifies how we compromise and negotiate with others.

If your 7th House is dominant, you likely possess a strong desire to form partnerships and may often find yourself acting as a mediator. You strive for fairness and balance, and are good at seeing both sides of a situation. This house's energy can make you diplomatic, co-operative and highly conscious of justice and equality.

They may need to learn to balance their need for relationships with the need for personal autonomy.
