The positions of the sun, moon, and
planets are shown on the wheel at the point that corresponds to their
astronomical position. Each astrology sign has it's own
characteristics and having planets in certain signs contribute to our
personalities as a whole.
Our Sun, Moon and Rising/ Ascendant signs play a
major role in who we are- how we feel, act and the impressions we leave on
others. Sun is internal, Moon is emotional and Rising/
Ascendant is external. These are the three signs most commonly interpreted.
Our Sun sign denotes the position of the
sun in the Zodiac the moment you were born. This is the sign we are all most
familiar with. Your sun sign determines your basic approach to life and your
general nature. Your internal instincts correspond with your sun sign.
Our Moon sign reveals your inner self,
the way you handle your emotions and fears, as well as how you love and feel.
The moon controls our moods- this is the unguarded subconscious you. This is
the sign that the moon was in the moment you were born.
Our Ascendant/ Rising sign is the first
impression we make on others, often our mask. It is the zodiac sign that was
ascending on the eastern horizon the moment you were born. Up until the twentieth
century this was the sign most focused on, not our sun signs. Our Sun and
Ascendant signs combine together to make our personalities.
