A Basic Guide to Astrology

The Core Three

Your sun, moon, and rising signs represent three aspects of your who you are: how you know yourself, how emotions affect you, and how others perceive you. In other words, they are the heart of your astrological persona. Getting to know your sun, moon, and rising signs will allow you to better understand how the stars and the planets take their toll on your life. 

More often than not, you have vastly different personalities with people with whom you share a sun sign with. This is because they’re probably influenced by moon and rising signs that are not the same as yours.


The Sun Sign

The sun sign is known with your date and month of birth. It represents the position that the sun was in the moment in which you were born. In simpler terms, this is your normal, go-to zodiac sign. Your sun sign represents your individuality and your general take on life, values, and creativity. It captures your overall essence and personality


The Moon Sign

Your moon sign is determined by the time, date, and location of birth. It represents the position that the moon was when you were born. Since the moon moves quite quickly, it is important to know the exact time of birth for it to be as accurate as possible. This sign represents your inner emotions. Think of it as the voice in your head that talks to you. The sign that rules your moon will influence that internal conversation. 


The Ascendant Sign

Like the moon sign, your ascendant, or rising sign is determined by your birth time, date, and location. The Ascendant sign is the one that rose in the Eastern horizon when you were born. The rising sign dictates the impressions you make on others. In other words, it is the persona that you let other people see easily. It is not uncommon for some people to be more in touch with their Rising sign more than their Sun sign.


The Birth Chart

A birth chart is assembled using the date, time, and location of birth. It is unique to each and every one of us, like a fingerprint! It is a way of visualizing where all planets and stars were located at the exact moment that you were born. Your birth chart reveals exponentially more information than your sun sign alone. 

Each and every planet, asteroid, and celestial body is represented in your birth chart. Believe it or not, there is actually a bit of every single zodiac sign in each of us. A birth chart is divided into twelve sections, which represent areas and aspects of life. They are known as houses. Certain signs rule certain sections. Different positions of planets and stars in these sections affect those aspects of life. Sometimes houses are empty in birth charts, but this just means that the ruling sign influences them.

I hope you were able to learn a bit about what April has in store for you, as well as a few key aspects of astrology! Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions. Have a lovely April!
