Zodiac signs represent the personality of an individual. Zodiac signs and personality traits have a significant role in the way you behave or the way you feel about things. When we speak about zodiac signs, we are focussing on the sun signs only. Sun signs mean the position of the sun when you were born.
The personality of an individual does not only depend upon the sun sign. The three main signs include sun sign, moon sign, and rising sign. Each sign has a lot of importance and different characteristics. Let us find out what these three most prominent star signs mean:
Sun Sign: It is the main sign that everyone looks up to. You have a majority of characteristics based on your sun sign. The most prominent aspects of your personality are what the sun sign is. The way you are or behave is what sun sign is. The sun sign is your true self. It also forms part of the birth chart – so you may want to know what your astrology sign says.
Moon sign: It was the position of the moon when you were born. It reflects the emotional side of you. The way you love and want to be loved is dependent on your moon sign. The things you fear, the things you obsess with and what you are passionate about is all dependent on the moon sign. Your moon sign determines the choice of you when you are looking for a partner. It is the side of you that you prefer to keep to yourself and not show others.
Rising sign: It is what people perceive of you as a person at first glance. The first impression that people have of you depends on your rising sign. The rising sign is also known as the Ascendant. It may appear as the way you may show yourself to others. For example, you may be extrovert, but when you meet someone for the first time, you prefer to stay silent or act like an introvert.
Your date of birth, the exact time of your delivery, and the place you were born has a significant role in determining what you sun, moon, and the rising sign would be. Make sure that the information you provide must be accurate.
