Zodiac Sun/Moon/Rising Signs
When someone asks you your zodiac sign, they’re usually referencing your sun sign. Also known as your zodiac sign, star sign and birth sign. This is the sign the sun was in at the moment of your birth.
Your moon sign is the sign of the zodiac where the moon was at your moment of birth. It's the soul of your identity, the subconscious part of yourself that you might keep hidden from others (unlike your outward facing sun sign) and it makes up a big part of your emotional side.
The rising sign refers to the zodiac sign that was rising (or ascending, hence why it's also referred to as the “ascendant”) in the eastern horizon when you were born. Think of your rising sign as the mask you wear with the world. It often gives insight into your style, how you look and even how you partner and relate to other people.
