THE MOON IN YOUR BIRTH CHART:
As the Moon rules the ebbing and flowing of the sea, so it rules our ever changing emotions. The Moon influences how we respond and react, our home and hearth, our family and roots, how we feel, our mood swings, our instincts, our needs in order to feel secure, our basic habits, our unconscious and our intuition.

The rising sign is the path we take to our Sun sign.
The Sun is why we are here, the rising /ascendant sign is how we get there.
