Exploring Your Astrology Trinity: Understanding the Significance of Your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs
If you’ve been following The Mantra Co for a while, you know we are lovers of Astrology! Each of us is born under a specific zodiac sign, known as the Sun Sign, which can say a lot about our personality, habits, and love languages, and helps us understand our experience on Earth with the stars as our guide.
But there is so much more than just the Sun Sign to look at…
Knowing your “Top 3” or your Sun, Rising, and Moon Sign can help you understand deeper layers to your personality, your emotions, and the way that you are perceived in the world.
So, let’s take a deeper look into what these 3 signs mean for us.
1. The Sun Sign
The Sun Sign is the most common zodiac sign that people identify with. It is defined by the position of the Sun at the time you were born. Your Sun Sign represents your core self, your identity, and your ego. It’s who you are underneath it all. Its common to not always feel like your Sun Sign, and that’s because your Rising, Moon, and other planets also have a powerful influence on your experience as a person…but just as the Sun is the core of the galaxy, your Sun sign is the core of you, deep down.
2. The Moon Sign
The Moon Sign is more subtle, yet it often touches a deep place within the self. It represents your innermost self, your emotions, and who you are in more intimate and close relationships. Your Moon Sign is the way that you process and express your feelings on a soul level. It’s who you are when you’re alone or with people that you let yourself open up to.
3. The Rising Sign
The Rising Sign, also known as the Ascendant, tells a different story. It represents who you appear to be outward, in the public eye. It’s your personality in social settings, and often how you will be perceived by others. In other words, it’s the vibe you give off. You may notice your Rising Sign being expressed in the way that you dress and present yourself to the world. It sometimes can be described as your first impression to the world.
