Astrologist Susan Taylor's insights:

Astrology is a vast subject and it can sometimes be tough to relate to just our zodiac signs and the traits allied with them. Having the whole picture and having information on the other signs will give you a deeper understanding.


Sun, moon and rising signs

Sun sign explained: Outer 'you'

Your Sun sign refers to the position of the Sun in your birth chart. If at your time of birth on January 13th for example the Sun was in Capricorn, then your Sun sign is Capricorn.

You sun sign or zodiac sign is what you put out into the world. Most people only know their sun signs because our horoscopes are based on them. To calculate your sun sign, all you need to know is your date of birth. When we are born, it’s said that we instantly take on traits associated with our sun sign, which explains why our sun sign influences how other people view us.

Your sun sign represents the core of who you are and symbolizes your strength, attitude and understanding of things. Your sun sign gives us an outline of your passions and what motivates you in life. Your unique personality is forged by your star sign depending on its location in your birth chart.

Moon sign meaning and explanation: Darker you

Your Moon sign is associated with the position of the Moon in your birth chart. The position of the Moon in your chart depends of the time of your birth, because the Moon crosses the zodiac very quickly. The Moon sign is more important for women than men, because it’s associated with sensuality and femininity.

If your Moon sign is Leo for instance, you are likely to be dominant and very flamboyant. As for men, their Moon signs are less obvious but still present nevertheless.  

Your moon sign refers to the deeper and more emotive sides of your personality. It is even said to be the key to unlocking your soul. Much like the dim moonlight, the characteristics associated with your moon sign aren’t immediately noticeable due to a lack of illumination. This astrological aspect is fairly understated and relates to the traits that people hold back on showing.

The moon is linked to our emotions and profound feelings that we don’t always feel comfortable expressing to other people. Secretly people often identify more with their moon sign than their sun sign because they are afraid to put their real selves out there.

Ascendant and rising sign meaning: Deeper you

The rising sign is the sign on the Eastern horizon at the time you were born and is referred to as the ‘inner you’. It’s related to the character traits that you put out there for the world to see and what your friends and family associate you with. This sign is equally important as the sun and moon and helps finish off the puzzle that is your personality.

Your ascendant influences your style, look and how you present yourself to other people. It refers to the parts of your personality that you proudly choose to show off and rock; those that make you unique and special.

Our rising signs are equally as important in men and women and compliment the zodiac signs. If our zodiac sign and ascendant both belong to the same element group, for example Earth, we can expect the serious, realistic and organized side to be even more intense. If for instance our rising sign is starkly different to our zodiac sign, such as Aries sun Capricorn rising, lots of conflicts and contradictions can be foreseen.
