“I was amazed how accurate my birth chart reading is. It’s exactly right! Great experience! ”
If you know your horoscope, then you know your sun sign. It is the one that represents the core of who you are. It also represents your “role,” identity, and ways we are likely to act. If you tend to be rebellious, and anti… anything, it is likely you are an Aquarius, Libra, Virgo, or Taurus. There will be overlaps in personality traits. After all, we’re human and are meant to relate to each other.
Another important component of your birth chart (aka where the planets were placed when you were born) is your moon sign. As every planet in the sky influences and illuminates different energies, the moon tells the story of our emotional nature. Let’s think about it, how often did you turn to just look at the moon when you were feeling moody late at night, or more receptive to your emotions when the sun goes down? The moon influenced and created the parts of ourselves that lie deep within us and reveal themselves when we’re alone or feel safe enough. It is the guide to our inner world and how we nurture ourselves. Tuning into this part of your chart could reveal a lot of hidden desires you may be holding back on.
The ascendant sign relates to the sign that was rising to the eastern horizon when you were born. It is not a planet but it is still part of a natal chart and gives influence to your cosmic signature. This sign rules what you project to the world, the mask you wear to the world, our first impressions and how we come across to others. It also changes an average of two hours (based on location to equator) so knowing the exact time of your birth is important.
This sign rules your 1st house and sets the tone of your chart. The zodiac signs have a “fixed” order so based on the sign of your first house (the ascendent sign), everything follows that in the cosmic realm.
We all have parts of ourselves that want to be heard, want to know we matter, and that we have a purpose in this life (thanks, Moon). If this isn’t something that resonates with you, that’s okay too. Above anything, it is important to follow the best route for our personal peace and liberty. Understanding the different components of your natal chart is just another facet of gaining a greater understanding of yourself. If that is a part of your journey, we invite you to explore the deeper parts of yourself.
