The Astrological Trait That’s Even MORE Important Than Your Horoscope

Horoscopes have been around forever, and whether we take them seriously or they’re just a guilty pleasure, there is no doubt that they’re entertaining. Looking at my horoscope might not help me plan out my future, but sometimes it helps me reflect on my current life situation.

With horoscopes reigning supreme, it’s pretty shocking that there may be another astrological trait out there that’s more important.

Take a good look at your personality traits. I’m sure that your personality is made up of a bundle of pretty rad stuff. However, there may be one trait that really dominates them all.

Perhaps you are undeniably shy, super-competitive, or endlessly creative. There may be one trait that you define yourself by. If you take a good look at yourself and find that one trait does, in fact, dominate the rest, you may have stellium.

What Is A Zodiac Stellium?

A stellium is found in your birth chart and means that three or more planets are in a particular birth sign. Aside from the regular planets that you’re familiar with, the sun and the moon are also considered planets in astrology.

For example, if you are a Capricorn, but you look at your birth chart and see that Jupiter, Moon, and Venus are in the Leo sign, you would then have a Leo stellium.

How Does It Affect Your Personality?

The biggest way that a zodiac stellium affects your personality is that it causes you to relate more to other star signs than your given birth sign.

For example, if my Sun is in Leo (my actual birth sign according to the month I was born) but my Venus, Mars, and Saturn are all in Cancer (giving me a Cancer stellium) I may relate more to the Cancer traits of being emotional, sentimental, and moody, rather than Leo traits of being go-getting and strong.

How To Find Out Whether Or Not You Have A Stellium

If you want to know if you have a stellium or not, you must first get a hold of your birth chart. You can look up your birth chart here, by entering the date, time, and place of your birth.

Here is an example of my own birth chart. When looking at just the Zodiac: Tropical box, you can see that the left column lists all of the planets and the right column lists the zodiac signs:

My Sun is Leo and it actually looks like I have a double stellium. The planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars are all in Virgo; Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are all in Capricorn. So, it’s likely that I jive with many aspects of Capricorns and Virgos.

Here is another way to look at the birth chart. The first chart (below) is the key that helps you understand what symbols represent each planet and zodiac sign.


This second chart (below) shows you an actual birth chart which you can use the key to read. It actually looks like it has a zodiac stellium }} with multiple planets pointing to the Libra sign.


Everyone wants to know themselves better, and honestly, it’s easier said than done. However, those with a stellium can often use it to understand themselves in a deeper way. If you always have found it difficult to relate to the traits of your actual zodiac sign, figuring out that you have a stellium can help you make sense of yourself and your world.

It’s worth a try anyway!
