In astrology, what is the meaning of the sun and moon signs?
When analyzing personality attributes, people are frequently perplexed about their true zodiac sign. Those who believe in western astrology consider their Sun sign to be the true indicator of their personality, whilst those who believe in vedic astrology consider their Moon sign to be their true zodiac sign. A few others are aware of their rising sign (also known as the Lagna or Ascendant), but they are few and far between. What is the source of this perplexity?
Before we answer, let’s go over how to figure out our Sun, Moon, and Rising signs. Sun signs and Moon signs are the signs in our horoscope where the Sun and Moon are located. If your Sun is in Taurus and your Moon is in Sagittarius, for example, your Sun sign is Taurus (your so-called zodiac sign) and your Moon sign is Sagittarius (also called rashi). The rising sign is the one that was visible on the horizon when we were born. Because the earth is constantly rotating on its axis, all zodiac signs appear in the zodiac at different times throughout the day. Consider a newborn baby resting on his or her back on the bed, looking up at the sky. The Lagna or Ascendant sign is the sign visible in the sky at that time.
Because the Sun takes 30 days to pass from one sign to the next in astronomy, all people born in that month will have the same personality traits. The Moon, on the other hand, changes signs every two and a half days, and this is a typical occurrence for people born during that time frame. The rising sign, on the other hand, is only visible for two hours and hence is more unique to those born during that time frame. The closer we get to that sign that actually resembles our personality and life style, the more we narrow down the time period. As a result, the rising sign (Lagna or Ascendant) is clearly the genuine determinant of our personality and behavior.
So, what’s the point of the Sun and Moon signs? The answer lies in the significant distinctions between vedic astrology and the astrology used in the West. Predestination and soul transmigration are concepts in Vedic astrology that are guided by our karmic tendencies. Human life is divided into three categories: body, mind, and soul. Our rising sign (Lagna or Ascendant) governs our physical existence or body in this life, while the Sun represents our soul and the Moon represents our mind.
To put it another way, the soul (Sun) requires a body (Lagna or Ascendant) in order to be born. The mind (Moon) is the software that enables us to go about our daily lives in a safe and secure manner. It also helps us make sense of our various life experiences and is the source of a wide range of emotions.
The Sun sign, when viewed in this light, resembles our feeling of life purpose, or what we often refer to as life objectives. The circumstances that one will encounter in this birth will be determined by the current birth (Lagna or Ascendant), while the Moon will inform us about our experiences. It functions similarly to a GPS system, assisting us in navigating current events and making meaning of various life experiences.
Let’s look at an example to help you understand. Assume you’re planning a trip from Delhi to New York. As a result, our eventual destination in this scenario is New York, which is similar to Sun (soul). Our current location, however, is Delhi, which is the Lagna or Ascendant. The Moon sign determines how we intend to get there. Different zodiac signs have distinct personality types that approach the same task in different ways. An Aries moon sign person will plan ahead of time and make all necessary arrangements, but a Cancer moon sign person will laugh at the inconvenience of a long flight and the resulting jet lag. Those born under the sign of Libra, however, enjoy the prospect of change and look forward to meeting new people.
In order to comprehend your personality, destiny, and buried karmic patterns, a vedic astrologer will look at the linkages between the Sun, Moon, and Lagna signs when studying your horoscope. Human personality is not a static trait; it changes and develops over the course of a person’s life. The sun sign represents that aspect of life that will always provide us true enjoyment, as well as our desires, which might be difficult to satisfy at times. The Lagna or Ascendant represents the situations we will face throughout this birth, which will further mold our personality. The Moon sign is the aspect of our personality that is constantly formed by our social interactions and experiences, and it assists us in making decisions based on what we learn from our surroundings.
How do I find out what my moon sign is?
While determining your sun sign is simple (based on your birth date), determining your moon sign is a little more difficult.
Calculating your full date, location, and time of birth, as well as your position around the moon, yields your moon sign.
It travels fast across the zodiac, spending two to two and a half days in each sign.
Your lunar sign is likely to differ from your solar sign; for example, you may be a Taurus, but your lunar sign is Sagittarius.
What are my three major indicators?
When most individuals think of astrology, their solar sign is often the first thing that comes to mind. After all, that’s the sign you’d check up when reading your horoscope or researching your cosmic compatibility with your crush. Understanding the differences between your sun, moon, and rising signs is a crucial place to start if you’re ready to delve deeper into your own astrology.
In astrology, your “big three signs” are your sun, moon, and rising sign.
Consider them your most important astrological data. These three signs are quite essential in your horoscope, and each is in charge of a different aspect of your personality and total self. While the sun represents your core self and the moon your inner self, you might consider your rising sign to be reflective of your outward self.
Even if you don’t believe in astrology, it’s just a matter of time before someone asks you for your big three, so now is the time to practice. Let’s go through the basic meanings and differences of the sun, moon, and rising signs so you may start looking into your birth chart and using astrology to your advantage.

By birthday, what element am I?
There are 12 astrological signs in Western tropical astrology. Each of the four elements has three Zodiac signs connected with it, which are always exactly 120 degrees apart along the ecliptic and are said to be in trine with one another. The four classical elements (also called as triplicities) are still used extensively by most current astrologers, and they are still considered a crucial part of astrological chart interpretation.
Starting with Aries, which is a Fire sign, the next sign in order is Taurus, which is Earth, followed by Gemini, which is Air, and finally Cancer, which is Water. This cycle repeats twice more before concluding with Pisces, the twelfth and final astrological sign. According to Marcus Manilius, the elemental rulerships for the twelve astrological signs of the zodiac are as follows:
- Aries 1; Leo 5; Sagittarius 9 hot, dry, and ferocious
- Heavy, chilly, and dry2Taurus; 6Virgo; 10Capricorn
- 3 Gemini; 7 Libra; 11 Aquarius bright, hot, and damp
- Water is for Cancer, 8 for Scorpio, and 12 for Pisces. It is cool, moist, and gentle.
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.
What’s the difference between the Moon sign and the Sun sign?
Your inner self and emotions are represented by the Moon sign, while your zodiac personality is represented by the Sun sign. Both signs have an impact on your personality and future.
Is it possible to determine my rising sign without knowing my date of birth?
You must know your exact birth time in order to establish your rising sign. Because the rising sign changes every two hours, this is the case. Fortunately, your birth time is printed on your birth certificate.
What does your moon sign imply?
Almost everyone knows their star sign (also known as sun sign), but what about our moon sign? Everything you need to know is right here.
The sign in which the sun was when you were born determines your star (or sun) sign. Because the earth takes 30-31 days to rotate around the sun and change signs, you share your sun sign with everyone born during that month. The brushstrokes of your personality, or ‘outer self,’ are determined by your solar sign. Your moon sign, on the other hand, reveals the REAL you, the private person you know yourself to be.
Because the moon only spends about two days in each sign, it’s a lot more unpredictable component of your birth chart. It largely explains why you are so unlike the other people you know who have your sun sign (does anybody else ever feel a little embarrassed when they learn that a despised celebrity shares their sun sign?)
The cauldron of emotions, fears, longings, and obsessions simmering beneath the surface of your sun sign-driven ego is reflected in your moon sign. It’s all about the inner self, its motives and fears. It has a significant impact on your interpersonal interactions and how you FEEL about things. It’s a deep hole.
