Astrology believes that celestial bodies have an impact on people’s lives that extends beyond simple weather patterns, based on their birth date.
On a broad—or atmospheric, if you will—level, your astrological fate is determined by the position of the celestial bodies in our solar system at the moment of your birth. For horoscopes, we prefer to focus on the specific location of the sun, which defines your solar sign. However, to have a comprehensive grasp of how the celestial map may impact your personality and life path, it’s also important to evaluate the placements of the planets—all of which have different meanings in astrology.
What are the three big signs?
The big three are your natal chart’s positions of the sun, moon, and rising (or ascendant). Your natal chart depicts the position of the planets, moon, and sun in the sky at the time, date, and location of your birth. Returning to cosmic principles, it’s critical to learn the meanings of all the planets in astrology to evaluate their relative placement in your chart and what fate they may predict.
According to an astrologer, the following are the main meanings of all the planets in astrology:
The sun represents ego and creativity.
The sun is not officially a planet (it is a star), but because it is a luminary body in our solar system, it has the same astrological influence as the planets. It may have the most influence on your overall personality since its position in the sky at the moment of your birth defines your sun sign or the zodiac sign you’d generally read about in a horoscope.
While the sign it was in when you were born might provide greater insight into how its influence emerges in your life (it transits into a new sign each month), you should also examine the astrological house it was in. This can provide some insight into the major arena of life (for example, profession, family, travel, etc.) where your core purpose will be acted out.
The moon: emotion
The moon represents emotion. The moon is not a planet by scientific standards, but it serves a comparable role as a prominent celestial entity in astrology. Lang claims that this situation reflects our emotions, senses, instincts, intuition, and unconscious selves. The sign in which the moon was when you were born often reveals an interior identity that differs from the surface-level personality portrait given by your sun sign.
