How many times have you asked yourself, "Who am I? What am I doing here? What is my purpose?" Well, if you've asked any of these questions before, then you, my friend, are a seeker on the path to find the real you. My favorite road to get some of these answers is through the astrological birth chart. This is your Soul's Blue Print that came into being at the time you were born.
Your birth chart reveals who you are, how you express, why you are here and your talents and your challenges. In understanding your Soul's Blue Print, you are understanding and becoming aware of the TRUE you - not the you that your family, teacher or partner told you that you are.
There are three main aspects of the birth chart that contribute to the main parts of your personality. Your Sun, Moon and Ascendant (or Rising) Sign. Your Sun sign denotes the zodiacal position of the Sun at the time you were born and shows the basis of your personality. Your Moon sign is the position of the Moon at the time you were born and deals more with your emotions and your subconscious mind. The Moon sign is more particular to the individual because it changes sign every two and a half days. The Ascendant or Rising sign is the sign on the cusp of your first house, which changes every two hours. The Ascendant sign describes your outer personality - what people see when they first meet you. The Ascendant sign acts as a sheath through which all the other planets and aspects in your chart are filtered through.
