Have you even wanted to know about your past and future? Do you sit in front of the television every day waiting for the experts to read out your horoscope? Do you find it incredible how the inconsequential rotation and revolution of stars and planets tremendously affects our day to day lives? If the answer to all these questions is YES, then I am most certain that at some point, you have found yourself wondering about the importance of  moon and sun signs.

Let us have a quick look.

In the complex web of space and time, our planets and stars are constantly shifting positions. This change in placement is well documented, and a note of the relative positions is made during childbirth. In simple terms, Moon sign of an individual is determined on the basis of the position of the Moon at the time of birth. Sun sign is determined by the locale of the Sun at birth.

Astrology, as per the Vedas reveals the importance of moon sign and sun sign in our lives. They accumulatively define your overall personality and forecast the future. Your zodiac personality is determined by the Sun sign and is impacted by the day and month of your birth whereas the moon sign reflects your inner mood and emotions. In simple words, the sun sign reveals your wants, and the moon sign shows what you need.

Sun sign and its calculation- Sun sign only considers the position of the sun at the time of birth which is obliged to be placed within one of the 12 zodiac signs namely: (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces). It is more significantly used in western astrology. The Sun sign directs what you want out of this life, and the distinct traits and qualities you will inherit to achieve it. It depicts your core personality, basic preferences, position, power, ambition, recognition and stability of an individual in numerous aspects of life.

One can find out his/her sun sign or star sign by simply perceiving when their birthday falls in the dates below-:

  • Aries: March 21- April 19
  • Taurus: April 20- May 20
  • Gemini: May 21- June 20
  • Cancer: June 21- July 22
  • Leo: July 23- August 22
  • Virgo: August 23- September 22
  • Libra: September 23- October 22
  • Scorpio: October 23- November 21
  • Sagittarius: November 22- December 21
  • Capricorn: December 22- January 19
  • Aquarius: January 20- February 18
  • Pisces: February 19- March 20

Moon sign and its calculation- The Moon sign represents the position of the moon during one’s birth. Since the moon moves pretty quickly, it takes about 28 days to travel through all the 12 zodiac signs, it visits all the zodiacs for about two to two and a half days each. Moon signs are referenced throughout Vedic astrology and are considered more accurate. The moon sign has the 2nd most significant influence on an individual’s emotions and personality. It tends to cast light on your internal self, reflecting your deepest desires, fears and thoughts. Unlike the sun sign,determining your moon signs needs to be really accurate, so u cannot know your moon sign just on the basis of your date of birth,but you will require your birth date, the geographical location of where you were born and the exact time of your birth to find out your exact lunar sign.

The moon sign basically differentiates you from having the similar personality traits and characteristics from a person who shares your sun sign further balancing out any extremes you might have in your sun sign. In simple words the moon sign is a door way to your emotions and subconscious mind.

Moon sign is also used in calculating the Rashiphal of an individual hence its importance as an indicator is unparalleled. The Moon and the Sun should always sing in harmony. If their cycles are in sync, that individual has the power to brave the most intimidating storms, and he/she is able to find success in everything they put their minds to.
