Introduction to Astrology and Relationships
Rob Tillett, astrologer and publisher of Astrology on the Web, takes a brief look at Astrology and Relationships. Understanding the astrological interaction of the Sun, Moon and Ascendant is the ideal way to discover and investigate the nature of relationships, and is also a very valuable way to explore the compatibility between two people. This article is part of a series that we have published on Astrology on the Web.
The Sun Sign
Your Sun Sign is where the Sun was placed in the Zodiac at the time of your birth. Sun signs have become the staple diet of popular astrology, because everyone knows their birthday and the Sun's position can be easily worked out.
The astrological info on our website looks at the deep, archetypal symbolism involved with each Sun sign, but each of us is a lot more than just our Sun sign. Everyone's personality is a unique combination of influences from the Sun, the Moon and all the planets of the Solar System at the time and place of our birth.
Your Ascendant, or Rising Sign, is the sign of the Zodiac which was rising over the eastern horizon at the time of your birth. This changes approximately every two hours. Even twins born as little as five minutes apart could have different ascendants, which would make a real difference in their horoscopes and therefore their personalities.
The Moon Sign
Your Moon Sign is the sign of the Zodiac occupied by the Moon when you were born. The Moon sign indicates your personality, reflecting the emotional development you underwent in your formative years. It can be thought of as an imprint or legacy from your early home environment and especially from the way your mother related to you when you were a child. As an adult, you experience the Moon sign as a bundle of deep-seated emotional needs that must be fulfilled. Under pressure, you may exhibit the emotional needs and characteristics of that sign more than the characteristics of your Sun sign.
Ultimately, there is no substitute for having a complete horoscope cast by a professional astrologer. If you are contemplating a serious relationship with someone, spare no effort to find out the exact location, date and time of their birth and rush the details to us for a complete explanation, interpretation and prognosis of your relationship. This could save you months of fruitless pursuit and years of frustration—not to mention helping you avoid the agony of a broken heart, countless hours of psychotherapy and the decimation of your bank account.
Should the object of your desire happen to have been born on a day when the Sun changes signs, it's possible they were not born under the sign they have been mistakenly reading for years in the magazines.
