Many people are getting into astrology as time goes on, leading to people discovering things about the astrological world and themselves. However, there are still some aspects of the astrological world that are confusing to some people.


One of these aspects is rising, sun, and moon signs. Each of these represents something about us and our personalities that we may not have understood before. This means that you will understand yourself better when you understand these signs.

Known as ‘The Big 3’, here is everything you need to know about your sun, rising, and moon signs.

Rising Sign



Your rising sign is the sign that is also known as your ascendant sign. Under this sign, you will find out everything you need to know about the personality you represent to the outside world.

This sign is the one that best describes you socially. The way that you act around your friends or when you are out in public, say at a restaurant or the mall, and the way you interact with people there is what your rising sign represents.



Your rising sign is named in this way because it was the zodiac sign which was rising on the eastern horizon at the exact time of your birth.

Sun Sign




The day that you were born was special in many people’s lives. It was the day that you were brought into the world and began your journey as a tiny human, and you have undoubtedly touched many people’s lives along the way.

Another thing that the day you were born tells you, though, is your sun sign. Your sun sign is what represents you the most. Most aspects of your personality will be found in your sun sign, and you will be able to tell a lot about a person from their sun sign.



Your sun sign is also known as your zodiac sign because it is based on the position of the sun at the time of your birth, which is the same each year for that particular zodiac sign.

Moon Sign



Your moon sign is the sign that represents what you are like on the inside. You may have personality traits or certain aspects of yourself that you prefer not to show to the world because of fear of being judged or ridiculed.

However, when you are extremely comfortable and feel as though you can trust someone, or when you are alone, you let these personality traits come out and allow yourself to feel things that you may have been bottling up.



Your moon sign is based on the moon’s exact position at the time of your birth.

Bottom Line



Your sun, moon, and rising signs are all mixed together to make up the entirety of your personality. Knowing all three of them will help you to understand yourself better and will help others to understand you, too.

You can find each of these signs simply by searching the internet for a generator that will ask for your birth date, time, and place before telling you what your ‘Big 3’ are.
