What is Ascendant, Moon Sign and Sun Sign ?

If you have been reading astrology to know your future, you often come across this terms – Moon or Chandra Rashi, Sun Sign (Western Astrology) and Ascendant (Or the Lagna)

So are you Leo ? or Aquarius ? or Capricorn – No WAIT !!!

Newspaper say my Sun sign as per my Birth date is Aquarius but my Astrologer (Jyotish) says you are Makkar (Capricorn) with Leo Lagna (Ascendant)

Well, what does that mean dont Get Confused ? We crack them all …

You know we see Birth chart as the sky – the sky at the time of your birth. Not today’s sky.

Note where your Sun is placed: In which Sign ? – that becomes your SUN SIGN.

Note where Moon is placed in which sign of the sky the day and time you were born – that becomes your MOON SIGN.

The Ascendant or the Lagna is the SIGN (Not Planet) that rises in the EAST when you were born (or the 1st house)

Lets take an Example. Lets say someone just took birth 2-3 days back. Lets say, 22 October, 2016 at 2:24 pm IST in Mumbai, India.

The Sky at the time of Birth can be represented as below:


Can you point out > What is Sun Sign ? > What is Moon Sign ? > What is Lagna (Ascendant) ?

Sun Sign: Find out where Sun is ? In which Rashi (Not House). Sun is in Libra(7). Sun Sign is LIBRA

You know the Newspaper Horoscope > It says Libra (Sep 24-Oct 23): So since the person was born on 22 October, 2016 – he looks Libra Sun sign for his/her fortune. And see the birth chart – Sun is also in Libra.

Moon Sign / Chandra Rashi: Find out where Moon is ? In which Rashi (Not House). Moon is in Gemini(3). Moon Sign is GEMINI. Note that Moon sign is important as it gives the frame of your mind – Moon is Mind – and in India, Indians get their initial named after Chandra Rashi – Like for Libra -If your moon sign is Libra – your name should start with – Ra, Ru, Re,… In India Astrology TV Readings are based on Moon Signs.

Ascendant / Lagna: It is the Sign rising in the east at the time of Birth. East is represented by the 1 st house. So, Lagna here is CAPRICORN (10)

I hope I have reduced your confusion little…
