Big 3 Astrology

Want to discover what the so-called Big 3 Astrology signs in your natal chart are all about and what they can reveal about your personality?

You’re probably already familiar with the concept of Sun signs, but have you also heard about Moon signs and Rising signs? All three are vital aspects of your natal chart, and two of them are often overlooked, despite giving you key insights into who you are and what you’re life’s purpose is.

If you’re ready to learn the truth about both Sun, Moon and Rising signs, then keep on reading.

There’s more to your zodiac sign than you think

Whenever someone asks you about your zodiac sign, you can be almost 100% certain that what they mean is your sun sign. Most people don’t know that we all also have a moon sign as well as a rising or ascendant sign, and that these also have a lot of influence on who we are.

In other words, there is so much more to your astrological sign than merely the sun sign you were born under. Knowing someone’s moon sign and rising sign can give you a lot of additional detail and information about who they are. This can also explain why you may not feel that descriptions of your sun sign really resonate with you or represent the truth about you. There’s simply much more to you than just your sun sign.

In this article, we’ll cover both the sun sign, the moon sign and the rising sign. We’ll discuss what each of them means and how each of them influence and shape your personality.

Sun sign

Most people only known their sun signs – and indeed, knowing where the sun was positioned at the precise moment of your birth gives you a vital piece of the puzzle when it comes to understanding yourself. 

Your Sun represents your center, your core being, your attitude to life in many ways. Your sun sign also deals with the things you take pride in or invest your ego in.

Briefly speaking, if your sun sign is an earth sign, you are likely to be driven, meticulous and calculated on a core level. If your sun sign is an air sign, you’re likely to be adventurous, curious and open-minded through and through. If your sun sign is a fire sign, you’re passionate, bold and brave, and if your sun sign is a water sign, you’re gentle, nurturing, creative and intuitive.

Moon sign

Your moon sign is determined by where the moon was located at your moment of birth. Your moon represents the subconscious aspect of yourself – the side of you that comes through when people really get to know you. 

Your moon sign also describes how you process and deal with your emotions. As a rule of thumb, people with moon signs belonging to the earth element are very emotionally stable and stoic, people whose moon signs are air signs are emotionally flexible and heal quickly from slights and setbacks, those whose moon signs are fire signs are daring and take emotional risks in the pursuit of love or adventure, while those whose moon signs are water signs tend to feel extremely deeply and process their emotions slowly.

Some astrologers also say that your moon sign accounts for the main maternal influences in your life. 

Rising sign

Your rising sign (or ascendant sign, if you prefer) isn’t a planet, but rather whichever zodiac sign was located on the eastern horizon at the moment you were born. 

Rising signs change every two hours, which means that no matter what your sun sign and moon sign are, your rising sign could be any of the other twelve zodiac signs. The variability in rising signs

Your rising sign represents the energy you show up with and infuse your life with. Broadly speaking, if your rising sign is an earth sign, you’ll show up in your life with boldness, confidence and reliability, utterly unafraid of putting in the hard work required to achieve success. If your rising sign is an air sign, you’ll show up with plenty of energy and original ideas. If your rising sign is a fire sign, you’ll bring the fire, the passion, the ambition and the boldness to every situation you’re faced with, and if your rising sign is a water sign, you’ll be nurturing, gentle and caring.

Frequently asked questions

How do I find my Big 3?

Your so-called ‘Big 3’ in astrology refers to your sun sign, your moon sign and your ascendant (rising) sign). You can find your big three by looking at your natal chart – there are plenty of websites that allow you to generate a natal chart in a matter of seconds. In order to generate your personal natal chart – or a natal chart for someone else, for that matter – all you need to do is put in your name, as well as your location, date and time of birth.

At the precise moment of your birth, all of the planets were positioned in the sky in a specific pattern which is reflected in the twelve sections of the natal chart. The position of each planet is recorded and can be seen in your birth chart.

Your sun sign is determined by where the sun was positioned at your specific birth time. Once you have your natal chart in front of you, you can see where the sun symbol is located, in one of the chart’s 12 houses.

Your moon sign is determined by the moon’s position at the exact time of your birth. Finding out what your moon sign is is as simple as locating the moon symbol on your birth chart. 

Finally, your rising sign, also called your ascendant sign, is neither a planet nor any other celestial body. Instead, it is whatever zodiac sign was positioned on the horizon at the very moment you were born.

What does my Big Three mean?

Your big three in astrology are the three astrological aspects that can give you the clearest and most comprehensive picture of your own personality.

The ‘Big Three’ refers to your sun sign, moon sign and rising sign. Each adds a vital puzzle piece to the mystery of who you are. 

Your sun sign describes who you are on a core level. Where the sun is positioned in your birth chart can tell you a lot about your personality, your ego and the things you are proud of. Your sun sign reveals your overall attitude to life.

Your moon sign, on the other hand, is your more hidden and subconscious nature. It represents how you approach and deal with emotional and intuitive matters. Finally, your rising sign represents the energy you put forth as you navigate the world. It’s how you show up and process your experiences.
