More Than a Single Sign
Just about everyone knows their sun sign, the placement of the sun on the day they were born. Sun sign horoscopes are what you read online, in newspapers, and the first thing you ask an Astrology Psychic about when you want to know “what’s happening” in your life. So why would anyone need to know their moon and rising signs? Well, your sun sign is a picture of your basic self, but knowing your moon and rising signs as well gives you a three-dimensional picture of the unique person you are.
Your sun sign is your core, your moon sign is your emotional self, and your rising sign (also known as your ascendant) is how you present yourself to the world.
Your Sun Sign and Your Personality
Your sun sign is the one most identify with. It’s home base. It’s the things you like, and why you like them a certain way. Your sun sign is essentially your core personality, the traits you display, and also how you view the world. Your sun sign even has sway over what revitalizes you when you feel drained. Depending on your sun sign, you tend to have a few common personality traits that you share with everyone else born under the same sign.
Aries- Fearless and intense
Taurus- Honest and loyal
Gemini- Sociable and curious
Cancer- Imaginative and warm
Leo- Charismatic and playful
Virgo- Honest and practical
Libra- Charming and romantic
Scorpio- Loyal and sensitive
Sagittarius- Adventurous and straightforward
Capricorn- Ambitious and strong
Aquarius- Creative and rebellious
Pisces- Kind and romantic
When you meet someone who shares your sun sign, you may find you have a lot in common, or you may find yourself wondering how two people born under the same sign could be so different. The answer can be found in their moon and rising signs.
Your Moon Sign and Your Emotions
Your moon sign is determined by the moon’s position in the sky at your time of birth. Your moon sign is your emotional center. It’s the source of your reactions to other people, different situations, and even how you feel about yourself. This is the part of you that you may only choose to share with those close to you, because your moon sign is all about your secret, inner self. The moon rules emotions and femininity, and therefore your moon sign rules those things in you, no matter your gender, for we all have a mix of masculine and feminine in us. Most importantly, while your sun sign reigns over what you do and don’t like, your moon sign rules your reactions to all of those same things. While the moon sign’s effects on everyone will be a bit different, there are a few traits that everyone with the moon in a specific sign will share.
Aries- Restless and self-sufficient
Taurus- Quiet and tidy
Gemini- Amiable and communicative
Cancer- Serene and steady
Leo- Ambitious and optimistic
Virgo- Devoted and sincere
Libra- Objective and romantic
Scorpio- Dependable and original
Sagittarius- Cheerful and supportive
Capricorn- Perceptive and resolute
Aquarius- Observant and protective
Pisces- Generous and warmhearted
Your Rising Sign and Your Outer Perception
Your rising or ascendant sign, is the sign that was dawning on the Eastern horizon on the day you were born. It is the side that you show to the world, and how you present yourself to others. It’s the physical you and your preferred style. Some astrologers also believe that your rising sign will also tell you your soul’s purpose. Your rising sign may even be the reason you associate with the traits of your sun sign as others do. If your rising sign’s element clashes with your sun sign (Earth sun, Air rising or Fire sun, Water rising) the personality traits of the two signs may clash a great deal, muting many of your sun sign’s usually dominant personality traits. In the same vein, if your sun and rising signs are complimentary elements (Fire and Air, Water and Earth) or share the same element, then your sun sign’s personality traits will probably be enhanced, or even exaggerated at times.
Depending on your rising sign, you tend to have a few common personality traits that you share with everyone else born under the same sign.
Aries- Devoted and steadfast
Taurus- Direct and resourceful
Gemini- Casual and trustworthy
Cancer- Genuine and sweet
Leo- Astute and romantic
Virgo- Inventive and modest
Libra- Accessible and magnetic
Scorpio- Adventurous and radical
Sagittarius- Cheerful and innovative
Capricorn- Persistent and resolute
Aquarius- Authentic and idealistic
Pisces- Compassionate and sympathetic
A Unique Combination
Your sun, moon, and rising signs form a three-dimensional view of who you are. Each is as important as the other, but understanding how they work together can give you a deeper understanding of self, why you do the things you do, and why you feel so strongly about particular subjects. It may also provide you with clues to putting you on the path to true happiness. This trinity of signs is what makes you the unique personality that you are. Of course, while most know their sun signs, not everyone knows their moon or rising signs. The best way to learn them is by having your birth chart created and read for you by an Astrology Psychic.
