When we speak about our zodiac sign, we’re usually referring to our Sun sign, the sign the sun was transitioning at the time of our birth. Although our Sun sign represents our general nature, we are so much more than that. Which helps explain why people born under the same zodiac sign don’t act the same. There are other planets, aspects, elements etc. in our birth charts that help determine who we are as individuals.
Here is a brief description of what each planet in our birth charts represent:
Sun Sign represents our basic nature & ego.
Ascendant/Rising represents our external self; how we appear to others; our appearance & mannerisms.
Moon represents our inner self; our emotions and feelings
Venus for women represents how she love and express her femininity; for men Venus represents the kind of woman or partner he’s attracted to.
Mars for women represents the kind of man or partner she’s attracted to; for men Mars represents how he expresses himself and takes action.
Mercury represents our thoughts, ideas and the way we communicate.
Jupiter represents our beliefs, knowledge and luck.
Saturn represents our limitations, restrictions and lessons.
Uranus represents our individuality and uniqueness.
Neptune represents our spirituality, dreams, illusions and addictions.
Pluto represents transformation.
