    As you all know or will learn, this Forum revolves largely around Astrology but more especially how Astrology influences the characters of Astral Academy in day-to-day life and more directly than it would those without Astral Power. If you're ever having trouble deciding what Ascendant, Moon and Sun sign your character will have, you're more than welcome to use your own Signs to help you. Below, I've put a link to, if you can fill in personal information about the time and place of your own birth, you can find out yourself what exactly your three primary Signs are (Ascendant, Moon and Sun) and more.

    NOTE: This community will not have access to your Star Chart or birth information thereof, so, don't be afraid to find out.

    Below I'll describe what each (Ascendant, Moon and Sun) are all about in a Star Chart. You are encouraged to use it as a reference.

    * * *

    Ascendant: Your Ascendant sign is also called your "Rising Sign." The two terms are interchangeable. It is literally the sign that was rising on the Eastern horizon of the sky in the place and at the moment of your birth. Because the Ascendant sign changes every two hours all day long, yours obviously depends on the exact time you were born.

    Only if you were born near sunrise will your Ascendant sign (possibly!) be the same as your Sun sign ... and it is completely independent of your Moon sign. Yet this third component in your horoscope gives the move valid information about how you appear to other people ... and how you take on the world.

    Your Ascendant describes your temperament, the lens through with you view the world, the personality you put "on public display." It's the side of your character you willingly show the outside world. Changes here explain why even people born on the same day can have very different personalities, different strengths and interests, and different life experiences.

    Forecasts based on your Ascendant will be the most descriptive and accurate regarding your life circumstances and immediate future. You will relate to such information very readily ... which makes your Ascendant sign information even more crucial than that based on just your Sun sign.

    Moon: In astrology, the Moon symbolizes your inner self, the part of you that responds from habit, feelings, and instinct. If you are a sensitive or emotional person, you may recognize your Moon sign qualities more readily than your Sun sign. These traits are "who you are inside" ... an intimate side of your character only you and those close to you really know. In fact, your Moon sign may be very different from -- or even in conflict with your Sun sign traits. (And there's another reason why people are so complicated!)

    Forecasts based on your Moon sign reveal what's happening in your private life, your inner world, with your family situation and living conditions ... and how life's shifting tides could affect your security, foundations, and feelings. Because they target your experiences literally "where you live" you are apt to relate to readings that involve your Moon sign much more directly than those based on your Sun sign alone.

    Sun: The Sun symbolizes your basic personality. The Zodiac sign it occupies describes your character's essential qualities.. This sign is also usually the easiest to find. It's what you mean when you tell someone "I'm an Aries," or "I'm a Capricorn."

    The Sun, by sign and house position, describes your ego's central traits. To an astrologer, your Sun sign describes your core personality. Many say it's the most important sign you have, but that's not entirely true. The Moon and Ascendant signs are just as important -- but they can't be accurately determined without an accurate birthday, place, and time. (The Sun changes signs approximately once a month. The Moon changes signs every 2 1/2 days. And the Ascendant sign changes every 2 hours ... day after day after day.)

    NOTE: I should also mention that many Astrologers speculate that as we grow older we become more and more strongly attuned to our Sun sign while the Ascendant sign influences us more strongly while we're younger, the Moon sign typically comes into play when emotions run wild either inside or around you. Beyond that, all three have their own way of influencing who we are but more come into play, as you will see in your Star Chart.
