Dominating Planet

- In classical astrology the planet on the right of an aspect (i.e., that which is more forward in diurnal movement) dominates, overcomes or overpowers the one to the left. If a benefic dominates a malefic, acknowledgement is given to the benefic's power to overcome the effect of the malefic, and vice versa.

For a fuller explanation and diagram refer to the section 'The Dominating Planet' in the article The Classical Origin and Traditional Use of Aspects.
