While not most people know this, we all have more than just a sun sign when it comes to astrology. Yes, your sun sign is important but it doesn’t show you all that you might want to know. 

When it comes to diving into astrology you have to generate a natal chart so that you can figure out what your other signs are. For instance, your moon sign or your venus sign might not be the same as your sun sign and rule over different areas of your life. I know, this might be a bit hard to follow but stay with me. Now, to generate your natal chart you’ll need the place you were born, your birthdate, and the time of your birth. To generate a chart once you have all of that click here. 

Now, your sun sign is your traditional sign, mine is Gemini. This sign is the one that tells us a bit about our personalities. It gives us a little insight on why you are the way you are as a whole. That being said, if you want to know more about yourself you have to get into your other signs. One I like to start with is the moon sign. 

My moon sign is Virgo and it is very important in explaining why I am the way I am emotionally. Our moon signs represent our emotions and inner mood overall. If you’re wondering why you have certain habits or why you react to some things in a specific way, your moon sign can tell you exactly that.

One of the most important pieces of your astrological chart is your moon sign (where the moon was when you were born). The moon sign shapes your emotions and your soul. It colors all the subconscious stuff going on below the surface—your deepest needs, and what helps you feel emotionally secure.

The moon moves into a different sign every 2-3 days, which is why for instance, a Leo born August 11 could be quite different from a Leo born August 14.

Your moon sign can also influence how strongly your Sun sign is expressed. For example, if you’re a fiery Aries with a mellow Taurus moon, your aggressive nature may be toned down by the steady Taurus influence. Or, if you’re a watery Scorpio with a watery Pisces moon, you could be extra emotional and intuitive, since these are the traits of water signs.
