How To Know Your Big Six In Astrology

In astrology, your “Big 6” or “Big 3” refers to the sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and your rising sign, which are the most important planets in your natal chart.

These planets, together with the rising sign, work together in your birth chart to describe your self-expression. Each of these celestial bodies has its own distinct meaning, and when combined with the zodiac signs, they add to your astrological compass (also known as your birth chart) and provide insight into a variety of your behaviors.

While the rising sign isn’t a planet, it is in the sign that represents the start of your consciousness. The sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all reflect various elements of your life, personality, and how you connect with others, among other things.

Because these are the nearest celestial bodies to Earth, they have a greater impact on us than the outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto). The sun and moon are the “mom and dad” of the sky, working together to transform light and being the only planets that never station retrograde.

Mercury, Venus, and Mars, on the other hand, station retrograde on a regular basis and have an impact on how we interact, connect, and express ourselves based on their direct or retrograde movement, as well as the signs and houses in which they are positioned in our birth charts.

How do you go about locating your Big 6?

The placements of the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Mercury, Venus, and Mars make up your Big 6. These placements reveal how you prefer to interact, love being romanced, deal with disagreement, and more. Locate your Big 6 astrology signs after you have your chart (Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Mercury, Venus, and Mars placements.) You’ll have six distinct positions to choose from, each with its own zodiac sign. The following part will go through the differences between these planets and how they interact with your entire birth chart.


Your Big 6 in astrology begins with your Big 3 star signs (Sun, Moon, and Ascendant) before expanding to include Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Each of these positions, as well as the other planets in your full birth chart, has an impact on different facets of your personality.

Your ego energy is represented by your Sun Sign. It’s the facet of your personality that receives the most attention. What your Sun Sign represents in this lifetime is what your heart desires. Your Sun Sign also reveals how you prefer to express yourself and recharge your energy batteries.

Your Moon Sign indicates your emotions and inner self. It’s also known as your hidden personality. It has a significant impact on your interpersonal connections as well as how you intuitively perceive the universe. Your Moon Sign provides insight into your subconscious thoughts.

The energy of both your external personality and your birth chart as a whole is determined by your Rising sign. When you initially meet someone, the rising works as your energetic persona and aura. It’s how the rest of the world perceives you!

All things communication, intellect, spoken words, and the mind are influenced by your Mercury sign. It has an impact on how we see the world and, more crucially, how we feel ourselves fitting into it. It can also demonstrate how we acquire and process information or key skills.

Venus is the planet of passion, affecting dating, beauty, and pleasures in your horoscope. Venus can have an impact on long-term relationships, marriage, and romance. You may figure out what kind of romantic partner you are and who you attract by looking at what sign falls into your Venus.

Mars is the planet of action, and it has an impact on our passions, drive, and determination, among other things. Mars energizes both our assertive and confrontational personalities. Mars may show us what excites us, as well as what irritates us, as well as how we dispute and deal with differences.

You’ll want to figure out which zodiac sign and house each of your Big 6 belongs to, and then apply the zodiac signs’ effects to each of your placements. This will give you a holistic view of the energy flowing through your birth chart’s major personality placements! Rep this process for each planet in your horoscope until you have a complete picture of your horoscope.

What are the six major signs of the zodiac?

The Big Six of your Zodiac Sign

  • You’re probably aware of your zodiac sign.
  • Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra are air signs.
  • Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are the earth signs.
  • Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are the fire signs.
  • Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio are all water signs.
  • Because it’s the most common, this is the sign you’re probably most familiar with.

What are the three most important indications for you?

“I’m such a Virgo,” or “I could never date a Scorpio,” are undoubtedly phrases you’ve heard from friends. But what exactly does that imply? For a long time, astrology, or the use of planets and other celestial bodies to gain insight into events on Earth, was deemed quackery, but owing to a new generation of astrologers who are giving it a more feminist, psychological bent, it’s undergoing a revival. So, where do you begin with astrology? What are the most significant aspects of the Zodiac to understand? The main three: your sun sign, moon sign, and rising sign are a wonderful place to start.

Before we get into that, let’s take a step back and talk about your natal chart, or simply your chart. Your natal chart is a picture of the sky at the time of your birth. Everything in the sky was in a specific position when you slid out of your birthing parent’s womb, naked and slimy. Those placements, according to astrological theory, have an impact on your personality, passions, and strengths and weaknesses. It’s not so much that the planets did something to you at the time of your birth, according to current astrology. It’s not as if you were bombarded by gamma rays. Astrology, on the other hand, is a comprehensive approach to the universe: as above, so below. Everything, according to astrology, is intertwined in a web of connections and affinities. When you consider it from a spiritual standpoint, it’s actually rather lovely.

Your natal chart is a twelve-sectioned map of the heavens. (When you factor in something called housing, it’s actually divided into two groups of twelve, but we’ll get to that later.) Each segment symbolizes a Zodiac sign, with the sun, moon, and eight planets (aside from Earth) falling under each sign. If the sun was in Capricorn when you were born, for example, Capricorn is your solar sign.

What is your ascension?

The majority of us are aware of our own and our friends’ star signs, also known as sun signs. Isn’t it how we all make passive aggressive judgments while bigging ourselves up on Instagram with zodiac memes? Our moon signs are also known to us. But did you know you have a RISING SIGN that’s just as important?

The planetary influence that was rising, i.e. on the Eastern horizon, when you were born is your rising sign. It usually reflects how others perceive you in real life and can predict your gut reactions to situations. It is, however, yet another potential personality flaw to consider.

Because of its connection to the rising sun, your rising sign is also known as your ascendant, and many people associate it with your social nature, it’s possible that if someone is guessing your sign, they will get your rising sign before your sun sign! It’s how other people perceive you, which is something you’ll never have. This makes it a fascinating aspect of your birth chart to investigate: discovering who you are in the eyes of others.

Who is a rising Scorpio?

The Scorpio rising person has powerful, seething emotions that are typically hidden. Others find you intriguing and secretive if this describes you; you appear to purposefully turn on the charm for them. On the birth chart, someone born under this zodiac sign is at the ascendant.

Why did the Big Six get their name?

The United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC), one of the most powerful political parties in the British colony of the Gold Coast, afterwards known as Ghana, had six leaders. Following disturbances that resulted in the deaths of three World War II veterans, they were jailed by colonial authorities in 1948.
