What is My Sun Sign?

In astrology, our expert astrologers tell us that the Sun Sign of a person denotes what they want; while the moon sign, on the other hand, reveals what they need.

Now, people easily confuse Zodiac Sign with Sun Sign. However, there is a slight difference you need to be aware of to better understand what is a moon sign or what is a sun sign.

What you need to know here is that Zodiac signs are just separate entities. However, in what Zodiac sign the sun is homing at the time of your birth becomes your Sun Sign. Sun Signs are also known as Zodiac Signs for the simpleness of the term.

Sun Sign is usually calculated based on your date of birth. The astrology you read about in newspapers and magazines is usually based on our Sun sign.

So, from Aries to Pisces, the sun can be in any of the 12 zodiac signs at the time of your birth, which in the astrology world, will specify your personality.  Moreover, the placement of the sun in your Kundli allows an understanding of the negative and positive traits that you home in the most basic sense.

What is My Moon Sign?

Just like your sun sign denotes the exact placement of the Sun at the time you were born, similarly, the Moon Sign represents the position of the Moon during one’s birth. 

The science here is that unlike the Sun, which stays at the same spot while the earth revolves around it taking as many as 365 days, the moon moves much faster around the earth and visits all the zodiacs for about two to two and a half days in rotation. Thus, while the sun stays in a zodiac for almost a month, the moon on the other hand stays in a zodiac for only two to two and a half days.

Moon in Vedic astrology represents the mind and emotions of the person. It signifies the mental stability of the person making it one of the most crucial planets in Astrology. If the moon is afflicted by malefic, then it can lead to depression and mental stress in one’s life.

Unlike the Sun sign, the moon sign works BTS to fine-tune the relationship between a healthy mind and a healthy body. Also, moon sign predictions are considered more accurate as they take into consideration the exact time, date and place of birth you were born in. 

Moon Planet In Astrology

The Moon is the second most important planet in Astrology after the Sun. It is also regarded as the female planet and despite its smaller size than other planets, its impact on the earth (which is not a planet in Astrology) is more than any other planet because of Moon’s closeness with the Earth.

Also, within astrology, feeling “misunderstood” is often attributed to the Moon’s relationship with other planets. For example, a person with their Sun sign as Taurus is often attributed as the stubborn kind. However, they too feel an emotional depth and sensitivities that come when their moon sign is Pisces. 

Honestly, the Sun Sign and the moon sign differ from each other in complex ways. However, we must respect the way the poles are separated.
