What Is Your Astral Signature?

Filed in ASTROLOGY

woman with planets and galaxies swirling about her

You can’t forge your astral signature, and why would you even try? It is your Sun, Moon and Rising Sign, seen as a whole. Of course, there are many other factors in a natal birth chart.  But the astral signature alone gives a galaxy of insight.

See the Sun as the self you’re trying to actualize; you feel a broad affinity toward people with the same Sun Sign. You are complex, nuanced, and unique but just as the place you live in or the generation you were born into says something about you, so too does the Sun Sign. The Sun – by the house and by sign – is where you are most adept at dazzling.

The Moon is like your night-time self; your Moon has a secret history that runs parallel to the official timeline. Your Moon psyche has memories, echoes, and personally relevant reflections, and that is it. It’s your inner terrain and past-life recall. It is gut instinct, hormones, lymph, and mind-bod connections.

Your Sun, Moon and Rising Sign Are Your Astral Signature

And the Rising Sign or Ascendant is persona and image. It’s often the version of yourself that you present in relationships, and even if you don’t, the world projects it onto you anyway. It’s the constellation rising at the time of your birth. Aligning with it in your style and manner is not so much ‘lucky’ as it is useful. Weirdly, you can be “yourself,” and people who don’t know you well will think something’s wrong. It seems like you’re skewing the narrative or going off-character.

For example, if you’re a Water Sign Sun or Moon with an Air Ascendant, others perceive you as losing it or emotional when you’re neither breezy nor aloof. Or, friends see Fire Ascendants as being ‘a downer’ if they express a more classically Earth-style opinion.

The Moon Is Your Twilight Psyche

Like it or not, we’re often typecast as our Ascendant so why not play along with that?

People whose astral signature is harmonious – Sun, Moon, and Ascendant all in the same or simpatico elements – are given mad cred for being ‘together’ – even if they’re not. There is no conflict between their aspirations, image, and inner life.

While, when you’ve got – say – the Sun square Ascendant, it’s like a non-stop identity crisis. Or, to paraphrase the old saying, an identity opportunity. It’s certainly productive.

And if you’ve got the Moon in tricky angle to the Ascendant? You can feel like you’re forever trying to be understood or appreciated for your twilight psyche.

But that part of your persona that was only ever for you and you alone. Animals – especially familiars – relate to your Moon, and there is a theory that the Moon aspect becomes more potent with time.

Aquarius rising (Mars conjunct); I start out aloof and cordial and I have a hard core force field as well. Virgo Sun (conjunct Pluto): I am analyzing you on all levels whether I know it or not. Libra Moon (conjunct Uranus): I just want to be liked. Why can’t everyone just get along? You fools are on your own. I have better things to do…like save the planet, in my head.

Virgo Sun conjunct Pluto as well. I can be aloof, and put up a wall with some people.

What has me scratching my head is that my natal Saturn (is that how you say it?) is in Gemini in the 6th house. Lately I’ve figured out (it started dawning on me in 2015 but it’s getting crystal clear rn) that this is my sneakiest, most self destructive placement.
Virgo Sun, Sag moon, Sag rising.
Still working on rectifying this 🙂

CentaurusMM Member

The ‘dawning’ occurred during Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune. Wasn’t that fun btw! and now you’ve got Jupiter opposite Saturn. I have to say I don’t think Saturn is sneaky. That fits Neptune or even Mercury but Saturn will keep calling you back to what you’re not looking at or addressing and sometimes the means are um… quite creative, perhaps even appearing sneaky. I’d say tactical 😉

Hi Invicta! xx
I actually saw it earlier today & left you a message there.
That was during the Dark Age when Uncle Pluto was parked opposite my Sun. I can’t believe that was 4 years ago!!!

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

Ha awesome, I’ll go look!
Yes uncle P. Dear old unca P
He’s currently grinding over my NN as Saturn slowly catches up with him on route to the CC party in Jan. Oh my what fun we’ll have!.
Saturn in my first house is a veritable chuckle fest. Had unca P in the second since early 2017 and shudder to think what he’d be like parked on my Sun.
Post that transit then how is trix?

Well all the same, you sound in fine fettle Invicta, nice to hear you again – wonder what deep treasure Pluto on NN will dig up for you?! Sounds more exiting than the merde Saturn is causing me. Not long after Pluto left his post opposite my Sun, Saturn did its 2nd Return & then it snuck onto the same parking spot as Pluto had been in – yes, you heard – SNUCK. Bastard. It’s there parked opposite my Sun for the 2nd hit this year bringing back a tooth and back crisis which I’m trying to manage. I find… Read more »

I can see why you think sneaky and I find that oppositions can bring surprises.
I’ve had a roll of them ever since Saturn went into Sadge and visited all of my personals. Well, he’s on his way to see the twins (Moon/Venus) who near earth’s end.
Surprises – yeah, well I can’t say I’m a fan these days. I feel myself tense up as not too many of them have been pleasant and a lot of them have cost money/time/resources or affected my bod. Hmmm…. I have Saturn fatigue too. It’s a thing for sure.

skarabMM Member

I was just being a bit facetious with the Saturn/sneaky thang. Fact is i took my eye off my chart for a while & then when Saturn ailments happened i was a bit taken aback at the accuracy of the position & timing in my chart which i had missed. But as much as i respect boundaries and the virtue of hard work and all those Saturn qualities that we need to function, i get annoyed when people over pimp it as some saviour – as it can sometimes be unnecessarily harsh and sadistic, even.

InvictaMM Member

Yeah, I get what you’re saying. It can be power and control strategies as well or y’know… pitched as for your own good, tough love and so on. I don’t like boundaries like that and still have a desire to challenge them (depends here – is it worth my energy or the outcome). But I do like ’em and I do deploy them for my own well being and sometimes for other reasons and I realise I should turn the electricity off at the front fence so that innocents don’t get zapped 😀 I have taken eyes of my own… Read more »

Oh side-splitting! *It* went through my (& partner’s) 2nd house not that long ago and simply fuqed us over royally financially through no fault of ours.

something to do with the demolition astrology and creation of compensatory strengths
and well, eye candy helps with Pluto and Saturn transits. And imagination is free but crucial.

Saturn in Gemini in the sixth with it’s squares to my tenth house sun and mars in virgo and twelfth house moon and neptune in saggo has given me anything but a tactical daily routine / schedule / attitude towards responsibility. I appreciate the support but I’m sticking with sneakily self destructive for the purposes of my self assessment. Going forwards I’ll aim towards tactical!

Hey, intrepid archer! Pluto 4H, eh? Soul filtration, like being the kidneys of the family. Pluto 4H people have to accept their wandering mission, undo the ties that bind to heritage, be it family, country, culture. In Hellenistic astrology, the 4H was known as the house of Nemesis, meaning it was the place where the soul would receive divine retribution – it being the subterraneous place, Hades, it was the house of endings: the womb and the tomb. Pluto in the 4H is our Memento Mori. xx

Erudite, engaging and eloquent ICP – just as I’d expect from you. The bar’s been set and ooo-eee yes the memento mori isn’t it. I agree, part of this tour is to break cycles and patterns beyond those here and I said as much to my mum at a young age so go figure eh. Tapping the vibe but completely unawares of the journey it’d put me on. <3 xx

If I had a nickel for every time someone looked me in the eye after getting to know me and said, “I thought you were quiet…” HaHa! Scorpio Rising with Uranus squaring my 9th house Leo sun giving me a serious identity crisis. My Sag moon saves me every time. Oh and the quiet bit? Nah, I have three Gemini 8th house planets. I can’t hand out all that to just anyone.

I was told Scorpio Rising ususally suffer from other projections. I also have Jupiter/Neptune/Venus in the first house amplifying it!

Mine is a combination of fire earth and air. Have often thought emotion was lacking or have ultimate control over them, so yes there IS a water element missing in the trio. My 30’s and 40’s emotions were quite volcanic, reactionary but not hot tempered, more ‘why aren’t people up to speed’ annoyed. That changed with Island Time in the Pacific as it would in paradise when time is slowed down to ‘tomorrow’, can do it tomorrow, no rush, just applaud the sunset and moon rise.

Crab rising, Aqua Sun, Pisces Moon. I guess I’m seen as a mother, nurturer, care giver, but I’m really kind of checked out, sensitive, and in another realm with the Aqua Sun/Pisces moon combo. I’m a healthcare provider by profession, a care-giver, but trying to leave the field…. I don’t have any kids, either, but I’m a child-magnet. Kids feel very comfortable and safe around me, even ones I don’t know. It’s weird. Friends notice it too when it happens. Lately I’ve been looking at astro-cartography again.

Cap-rising, Pisces sun in 2nd, Scorpio moon in 10th (with Pluto and Saturn conjunct). A lot of career/achievement emphasis for me with an emotional overtone, and I’m always getting approached or asked for help or directions even though I prefer to be aloof, before I understood my natal chart that used to confuse me. People tell me I’m nicer/more laid back than I look. I am quite soft/compassionate but also very strong, strong-willed and can handle a lot, but I like to whinge about it. I used to reject how intense and serious I generally am and try to come… Read more »

Sun in Cancer/1st, Moon in Leo/2nd, Asc in Cancer… with sun and asc in the same sign, people can definitely read my cancer qualities…sometimes it’s nice, like they love being in my home but also respect my space highly because they know my home is my castle and sacred…they just FEEL it and respect it, even muggles (for the most part anyway, some muggles can “act out” but then they never get an invite again)…but on the negative side it gets to the point where I complain to my therapist that people at work come over to my desk and… Read more »

taurus sun, aquarius moon, aries rising here – i’ve always felt more aquarian than anything, perhaps amplified by NN in aqua conjunct moon, and uranus conjunct MC. that aries though – woof! get me in my own sanctuary though, and i turn full taurus – cozy, cooking up a storm, very low-key, and LOTS of sleep. 🙂

Ones rising star is the actual one that denotes how we project ourselves to others. It is the one that is most prevalent. It does its work without us realizing it. After realizing that, it has saved me a lot of heartaches and headaches. My rising star is Capricorn and people think that I am very conceited since I keep a cool demeanor and do not engage myself over trivial matters since I am not that emotional. I also do not make my personal matters public. My Moon is in Cancer so I also care about not to be mean… Read more »

My life became so much better when I stopped telling anyone anything. Fellow Cap asc! My heart goes out to you with that Cancer Moon wanting the exact opposite experience. My feeling is that us Cap ascs get so cold and closed off because as children we did Cancer 7th house cusp and OPENED OUR SOULS and were butchered by early friends/romantic partners and developed steely reserve to prevent further heartbreak. Last night during a game of Scrabble I was called “Machiavelli” and accused of cheating several times, but lovingly! People like it when I just flow with the Heir… Read more »

Cap-rising here too! That’s an interesting theory Saturn in Pisces! I definitely feel I’ve been through the wringer with relationships and so in my 30’s can be seen as cold but it’s pragmatism based on experience. I’m Pisces Sun, Scorpio moon, thankful for the Cap-rising as it’s the only earth in my chart.

So your words are very timely and heartwarming. I just found out through a nice neighbor who is moving to New Zealand after 16 years in this small town that the narcissist is actually manic depressive. I found out this revelation during Aquarius void moon. So it all makes sense now: why he just would not listen, his behavior. He just could not help himself. Once I… Read more »

My (Fixed) Earth Sun and Cardinal (Fire) Moon mean that I’ve never bought that my Cardinal Earth Ascendant is a “mask” – it’s actually me. On the inside, I do feel like a (much more charismatic) cookbook description of a Capricorn (that’s 7th house Mars in Leo and dominant Fire planets for you). What I struggle with is Uranus (I’ve also always thought that solar aspects are much more personal and interesting than Sun sign alone as the “soul” in the chart). My soul is not so much Taurus as Taurus chafing against being eclipsed by an exact South Node… Read more »

Another very late-degree Virgo Ascendant here! Pisces Sun (conjunct Mercury) – in 6th house for even more Virgo energy – and then Sagittarius Moon (conjunct Neptune) in 3rd house. My signature placements ALL oppose or square each other. Who am I even? 🙂 I feel more Virgo than Pisces tbh… although the insane intuition where I wish I was wrong but often proven right is probably Pisces / Neptune in action.

My Sun doesn’t work like that (sighs) being conjunct SN. It’s not in alignment with the premise of what I’m trying to actualize unless it’s something from the past…and it’s the 7th. As you might expect they keep coming back. The significant ones are definitely known, often on sight. One of the challenges of my chart that I perpetually draw a blank on. My Moon trines my Asc and is conjunct chart ruler in earth so that was how I kind of arrived at the scorched earth handle. Changing up was an intentional vibe change and a fiery arrow shot… Read more »

I’ve started to affirm that I share the perspective of the ancients regarding the central importance of the Asc/Moon over the Sun – maybe because because I’ve got my Sun 0 degrees conjunct the South Node at the bottom of my chart, maybe because I just don’t see people around me resonating very… Read more »

Thank you both for this – so much in this conversation that inspires me to keep searching the stars. The thing with astrology, i find, is that you can look at one aspect of it and you can get totally lost within its resonance (i was blown away by my Draconic chart even though it’s the complete reverse of my birth chart!) & look into another and find yet another world of resonances – in the end i figure that each aspect of it is like a fractal of the whole each showing you truths of your selfs, it’s never… Read more »

Beautiful words, skarab – I sometimes feel I have mastered the technical aspect of astrology to such a degree that I drive myself crazy with mental cosmic calculations rather than remembering the ultimate point of all this, to illuminate and guide us rather than making us feel as if we are constricted in boxes in which we clearly do not belong.

My reserved Cap moon and “out there” Leo Rising persona are most certainly at odds with each other!! I’ve seen an astrologer term the rising sign as the “role you play” in society, and that made a lot of sense to me, and seeing it in that way has helped me feel more at peace with my conflicting elements. It is hard though as I do get misunderstood by others. Some people just can’t see through the Leo side and think I’m all flaky fun.

You and I have similar influences… I have Pisces sun-Saturn-Merc conj, Leo rising and Cap moon-Lilith. So I am mutable water, fixed fire and cardinal earth! When people first meet me, it’s the Leo performer that they see/hear. They are often surprised at my more reserved side. However, my Cap moon is in my Leo house and my flaky Pisces sun is bolted onto Saturn in an exact conjunction so there is more harmony in my three elements than one might think. As I’ve got older I’ve grown into my Cap-ness and it’s probably that steely, reserved quality that people… Read more »

I’m a 6th house Cap moon but then I have Saturn in Virgo in my 1st house, and then I’ve got Lilith in my Leo rising, so funnily enough, in different ways we both have Saturn and Leo tied into the ‘holy trinity’ of our astral signatures! 🙂 And then I’ve got a triple conjunction with my sun too, but with Venus and Uranus… yet to fully understand the significance of that in… Read more »

Are Virgo ascendants overrepresented here?? Maybe we all feel seen by the line about people thinking we’re more pulled together than we really are. I’m a very late Virgo ascendant at 27 degrees, Pisces sun in the 6th and Aquarius moon in the 5th. I feel affinity with all three of those signs. Something about me broadcasts “I am here to help you” to seemingly everyone, sometimes to my chagrin if I don’t particularly want to hear your sob story while waiting for the bus. I love being helpful and useful but Aqua moon needs SPACE.

ooh I’m on a similar boat @sphinxradio. My Sagg moon (also needs lots of freedom, hates emotional complications, and loves the ‘big picture’) gets super annoyed with my Virgo ascendant that gives the impression that I live for detail-oriented work and helping people I barely know with every single one of their problems. I *feel* a lot less Virgo than I seem, and I actually find people who have a very strong Virgo vibe exhausting in large doses! Even if the world wants to perceive us as Virgos regardless of what we do, I’ll keep doing my best to tone… Read more »

The things I’ve read about it suggest the moon in Aries has the info from its last tour,mine would have been a new moon in pisces,yours a new moon in Aries? So the suggestion has been that the moon is coming home and is aligned with the sun, they’re on the same page. It’s more to do with completing things this go round.

The issue I see is that our nights are not illluminated, which I’m still wrapping my head around. The light comes from within?

Thanks SK, that paints a picture that I can understand. Yes I can see Aries on the horizon but I know I need to let go to get there.

It’s funny what you say about night
I love walking in the night, that is when the veil lifts. And Star Light.

Dark moons are for letting go, yes clearing and ending things but often when we do a dark moon clear it’s very intentional and that fits with the Aries vibe about initiating and cutting a path. Interesting that they’re both in the natural first house which is the spark of life/creation/beginning. Another couple of things I’d ponder if it were me – How close they are and which is the later degree eg which light is leading? Is the depth, emotion and window to the past or is the new light of expression? And then how do you work that/balance… Read more »

Hello other Aries Dark Moon folks! I feel like we need a support group. It can be a rough placement, especially since it accompanies a Taurus Sun automatically. Aries initiating vs. releasing. I feel it lends a Scorpio vibe. Springtime Scorpio. Dark Mars.

My suns in the first degree of the 8th house in placidus. 12.56 Aries is fancy town for the sun, with Eris at 12 and Venus at 11, moon at 4 in the seventh house. The low aeies “why doesn’t everyone shower me with love” is a thing, for sure, and I do joke that I share these bizarre traits with Madonna dolly parton lady gaga Hugh Hefner and woody Allen.

So I might just be resisting my innate creepiness at all times. Again, I’ll know when I’m 80 what this wackiness was.

Perhaps we’ll all know at that age or when we’re looking back. That’s the ride and that’s the planet of polarity. That I get – a simple truth yet mysterious and frustrating. Sun is also powered up by Venus. Maybe it’s about getting in on that conversation. Is she whispering to Sol that she wants something deep and intimate in the 8th theme. Sometimes I think of multiple planets in a sign etc as a group of folk with dominant characters. Are they being inclusive or ignoring. Is there a bully or a wallflower etc. It’s fun actually. Eris can… Read more »

“it’s in the dark when we see stars” certainly applies. I’m not feeling like a path carving warrior with Neptune parked on my mercury catching the party from virgo and Jupiter being jupiter on my IC. but Chiron’s on that Aries moon for a year so I must be in the cave with a strange salve on my temples. I’ll make sense again at some point.

If you start studying astro you’ll get to progressed charts when it’s time. I’d not do the topic justice anyway these days. This posts topic really is the best/most core to learn anyway. But the wormhole of knowledge is infinite… Are the astro school parts still around this website? Goldmine of info.

I do know that early spring and late summer are vastly different energies.

Like how adults ask five year olds “why can’t you do what I ask? I’ve told you so many times…”. As if a five year old has a fully formed frontal cortex. “Oh, right, yes,parental figure,my apologies, let me make a highly reasoned set of choices! Please feel free to go about with your hobbies while I become fully self-sufficient.” With a virgo rising, add ” I’ll discipline myself with sharp barbs of criticism til I get it right, I made you the artisanal cheese you like”

Virgo asc, Toro 9h sun ( stellium), aries moon. Even when i have had nothing together, people think i have. And people are often surprised to see that i am really not that humble. Aries moon can get irritated, but the benefits of a virgoan look are good. ( people assume youth, intelligence, humility, and hard work)

pennyluisaMM Member
pennyluisa

We’re almost alike in our signs (including the 9th house sun) except my moon is in Scorpio (3rd house). I never thought Virgo risings as youthful but it does shocks people to learn that I am 34 and not 24. I guess you’re more vocal with your feelings? I’d rather have another sign in moon than Scorpio anyday.

I like that the moon is aries, but i am not happy about the 7h placement. I feel that both my 9h sun and my Virgo asc (+nn) are happy alone. It makes me feel calm and complete. Yet my moon really wants a relationship. It is a problem

Aries Sun in the 11H, Cancer Moon in the 2H, and Gemini ASC. My Sun is un-aspected except for a sextile to my ASC/trine to DSC – mostly, I feel people are confused when I don’t show up like a hot air balloon. My Cancer Moon is heavily aspected, and when I was younger I struggled with the constant tidal waves – self- reparenting was life-saving!

One of the best lines ever and I think they must have overheard me on a few occasions ! I think my best was with my Aqua man on our first date sat on the rug by the fire playing scrabble I finally couldn’t behave any longer I pushed the board away, leaned into him, grabbed his belt and fly and said “show me what you’ve got to offer me” and promptly exposed him. I was truly impressed too !
Could be why over ten years later it still happens…a lot !

Leo Sun (5th house), Gem moon (4th house) and Pisces ascendant with 50% water, dousing flames of fire energy. Love D&M’s, language and colour, particularly indigo. Not very Leo, except finding frugality a challenge and keeping the lustrous mane in shape. True to my ascendant, love my work with feet.

Oh my gosh, I am a Leo sun, Gemini rising, Pisces moon! I bet we’d get each other. I’ve always felt that my three major signs, as I’ve always thought of them, have a certain sparkle when working all together. And they usually are. Am emotional water moon with a Performance Leo sun and Mercury could be overwhelmingly dramatic, but thankfully, the air rising presents as a little more detached so not everybody thinks I’m a loon. And the water leavens the air/fire combo a little.

What does it mean when a person has Sun, Moon and Rising in the same sign? In this case Libra. (Venus is also in Libra, in the 12th House.)

That, by reading what Mystic wrote, the image you project (rising) your inner world/secret self (moon) and the “self” you are trying to actualize (Sun) are all of the same “nature” and, in some way, in harmony.

Libra and maybe the more contemplative Goddess in the temple aspect since Venus is in the 12th- strong ancestral ties- wisdom tied to textiles, Feng Shui, magic in ancient customs- aka etiquette, self care rituals..,

How does this work is your sun and moon are in the same sign? Mine are both in Cancer, so I’m secretly Cancerian despite being inherently Cancerian? Libra ascendant does make me appear very sociable and detached when I am more comfortable being quite and instrospective.

I’m a Gemini Sun 4th house, Taurus Moon 3rd House and Pisces Rising.
Also Sun square Ascendant. Identity crisis, not sure. Yes people can’t work me out, hard nut to crack etc, but that’s half the fun.

As long as I understand and accept myself that’s all that matters.

And yes my Taurus Moon does get stronger as I get older, thank Goddess.

Yes Moon can be about feeling safe – Aries less so 😉 So Moon and Asc Taurus? Taurus is (amongst other things) measured moves and digging in heels rather than confronting so your natal placement is in the mix. Taurus can consider how something will appear or come across to others and the sanctuary of home will be protected from muggles even if that means some avoidance strategies to achieve that. I’d be casting a sideways look toward Uranus : May 2018 into Taurus Nov 2018 back to Aries March 2019 back to Taurus August retro until January but still… Read more »

Ha haaaa! Sun in Cap opposite Moon in Kataka, both square my Asc in Libra! I am one continuous identity/ existential crisis. It’s constant work just to exist and to know how to express myself. I never feel rested or comfortable with who I am perceived as, or what i perceive others have perceived me as. I’m exhausted, especially with Saturn and Pluto affecting all this now!!

HedgepigMM Member

It’s just occurred to me that people have often thought I was pretty together, even though I’ve felt like a mess for most of my life. I’m Cap Sun, and Taurus Moon and Ascendant. I think I’ve presented as Taurus throughout, and been encouraged to so so by significant others (first my mother, then my one longterm partner). Both of them weren’t comfortable with my insipient Capricorn qualities. Just wanted a caring homebody type. Only now at 45 and single do I feel as if I’m starting to let some of my Sun sign characteristics out.

CentaurusMM Member

Which is exactly what Cap Sun tends to do. The vibe gets lighter with maturity. I’ve seen that happen. Cap Sun seems to reverse age – not get immature, just lighter and more playful or feel less encumbered with responsibility etc.

My astro signature is a whole set of identity, er, opportunities: Sun in Libra in the 2nd house, Moon in Capricorn at a funky angle to my Virgo Ascendant.

People often tend to think I’m a lot more together than I actually am, and I put a huge amount of pressure on myself, constantly. I can be fun when I let myself off the hook, but (somewhat ironically) have always struggled to achieve any kind of balance in life.

pennyluisaMM Member

As a fellow Virgo Ascendant I feel you on putting the pressure on yourself and finding that balance. I’m a Taurus Sun (9th H) and Scorpio Moon (3rd H) so I’m already trying to deal with my inner working going from 0 to 60 at any given moment.
