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. This element 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 signs are less obvious but still present nevertheless.
This component refers to the deeper and more emotive sides of your personality. It's 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.
If your moon sign is in:
|Impatient and independent|
|Organized and conservative|
|Charming and chatty|
|Calm and peaceful|
|Bossy and idealistic|
|Ambitious and dedicated|
|Fair and flirty|
|Faithful and individual|
|Helpful and pleasant|
|Sensitive and bold|
|Jealous and attentive|
|Loving and compassionate|

Ascendant and rising sign meaning: Deeper you
Your ascendant is referred to as the ‘inner you’.
The rising sign is the sign on the Eastern horizon at the time you were born. 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 traits 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.
