What's Your Sign?
This question really means, What is your Sun Sign?
The Sun, from our point of view, travels around the Earth every 365 or so days, thus our calendar year.
Astrologers divide that entire ecliptic into twelve 30-degree segments, each one corresponding to a particular Sun Sign. So your date and time of birth determine which Sign the Sun is transiting for you.
The twelve Signs of the Zodiac have been studied and used for at least 5,000 years. In that time, many meanings have been associated with each of the 12 Signs, but the basic idea behind the concept of the Sun Sign is that it describes the essence of who you are, your basic tendencies, individuality, goals in life.
Combining Sun, Moon, and Rising provides a much more complex and meaningful picture, so if you read your daily horoscope in the newspaper or on-line, read all three and apply them appropriately.
What is the Ascendant?
For many of us, the first thing people see in us is the façade of our Ascendant, or Rising Sign. Your Rising Sign colors the personality you project to the world; it represents the way you interact with others, your outward goals. Your actual physical appearance and mannerisms are often more associated with your Rising Sign than with your Sun Sign. Even though our Sun Sign represents the essence of who we are and our Moon Sign governs our hidden emotions, the Rising Sign is our presentation to the world.
Your Ascendant is the sign (constellation of stars) that was “rising” on the horizon at the moment of your birth. Thus, you will need the exact birth date, time, and place to determine your Rising Sign.
Knowing your Ascendant or Rising Sign provides another avenue for healing, as well. Using the general characteristics of the Rising Sign and its Ruling Planet, we are able to choose specific crystals for your wholeness and abundance.
What does the Moon Sign mean?
Have you ever acted in a particular situation totally without thinking it out first? Have you ever just felt spontaneous joy? Have you ever just gone on autopilot? It was during these moments that your Moon Sign shone the brightest. Your Moon represents your instinct, your emotions, your dreams, your subconscious. As you might imagine, understanding this pervasive but hidden nature within you can be very important.
The Sign (constellation of stars) through which the Moon was moving at the moment of your birth is your Moon Sign; therefore, you will also need to know your date, time, and place of birth to determine your Moon.
Knowing your Moon Sign also provides another avenue for healing, as well. Using the general characteristics of your Moon Sign, we are able to choose specific crystals for your wholeness and abundance and along with your Rising and Sun are able to create custom jewelry for you.

The most important thing to remember is that these three Sign placements (Sun, Moon, and Rising) in your Astrological Natal Chart provide extensive and specific insights into who you are, what kinds of things you may want to move toward or to avoid as they arise in life, and how particular tendencies might allow for imbalances in your energy systems: physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. Combining the three major signs provides you with a different frame of reference for thinking through major decisions and also outlines a comprehensive approach to healing, better focusing the crystal assistance in your self-healing quest.
