Your astrology chart, also called a natal chart or birth chart, is a snapshot of the position of the stars and planets in the sky on the day you were born.

While your natal chart can look like a bunch go gobbledygook at first glance, the chart is easy to read once you know how it’s structured.

A sun sign is the constellation that the sun was ‘in’ at the time of your birth. Your sun sign is your ego. 

Identifying Your Sun, Moon, and Rising

Indicated by a crescent moon (☽), your moon sign tells you what constellation the moon was ‘in’ during the time of your birth. This represents your emotional and subconscious side.

There are other celestial bodies in your natal chart whose positions affect your personality depending on which house they’re in.
