Lunar Vibes The Big Three


In this episode, we discuss the big three placements in your birth chart. This episode is great if you're a beginner to astrology and want to learn the basics of your astrological makeup. A transcript of the podcast is available for download next to the title Podcast: The Big Three.



The podcast episode explains that your zodiac sign, or sun sign, is just a small part of your horoscope. Your birth chart, which includes the positions of all the planets at your birth, provides a more accurate picture of your personality. The "Big Three" placements in your birth chart are the sun, moon, and rising sign. The sun sign represents your core identity, the moon sign regulates your moods, and the rising sign is your first impression on others. To find your Big Three, you can use apps like Pattern or CoStar. Remember that astrology is not one-size-fits-all and can be a helpful tool for self-discovery and personal growth. Hey everyone, this is Kirsten Johnson, and you're listening to the Lunar Vibes Podcast, the show that answers your questions about astrology. Have you ever met someone so different than you, then discovered that you share a zodiac sign? Don't lose faith in astrology yet. In today's episode, I will share the secret to understanding your astrological makeup and the meaning behind your Big Three. At some point, you have been asked what your zodiac sign is. Maybe you recognized yourself in its description or felt it didn't fit at all. There's a reason why not all Capricorns are created equal, and why some Leos roar while others ooze charm from every pore. This is because your zodiac sign, also known as your sun sign, is only a teeny tiny part of your horoscope. Every person has a whole map of planets called a birth chart. When you were born, all nine planets plus the sun and moon were lined up in different parts of the sky. Astrologers mathematically divide that sky into 12 segments for each zodiac sign. That map is called your birth chart. By learning about your birth chart and all its placements, you can get a more accurate picture of your personality. The first step to getting to know your birth chart is to discover your Big Three placements the sun, the moon, and the rising sign. These three planets describe different parts of you, forming the complete picture of who you are. I recommend downloading the Pattern or CoStar apps from the Apple or Google Play stores to find your birth chart. You will need your birthday, the city you were born in, and your time of birth to find your Big Three. Let's start with the sun and what it says about you. Your sun sign is what people are referring to when they ask about your zodiac sign. The sun sign is based on the position of the sun in the sky when you were born. The sun moves through each zodiac sign at the same pace and spends about four weeks in each sign before moving to the next. As the sun is the center of the universe, the sun is central to our personality. It is who you are at your core, your ego or identity. The next Big Three placement is your moon sign. Your moon sign is based on the moon's position in the sky at birth. The moon moves quickly through the zodiac, hanging out in each sign for two and a half days and completing the cycle in a month. This may explain why someone born a day before or after you might seem different emotionally. Your moon sign regulates your moods. The traits of your moon sign usually do not show up in casual interactions. These traits typically show up with the people closest to us, the people we trust with our most intimate parts of ourselves. And finally, we have your rising sign. Your rising sign is based on the hour of your birth, so you will need your birth time to determine this placement. Your rising sign is based on whatever zodiac sign touched the eastern horizon at birth. This placement moves the fastest, moving signs every two to three hours and cycling through all 12 zodiac signs daily. Your rising sign is your first impression on others. Once you know your Big Three, you can start introducing yourself like a true astrological pro. Next time someone asks you, what sign are you? You can answer like this, I'm a Libra sun with a Sagittarius moon and an Aquarius rising. It's important to remember that no one size fits all in astrology. Astrology is a great tool for discovering more about yourself, understanding others and personal growth. Want to learn more about your nature?
