What is a Moon & Rising Sign?

 What is a rising & moon sign?

 When we think of 'star signs' we usually only think of what our star sign (also known as your sun sign) is, which is determined by your birthdate. However did you know what our birth chart is made up of many different facets, & today we chose to focus on the three most common & known, which include your star, rising & moon signs. Our astrological make up can give us deep insight into how we feel & how we interact with the inward & outward worlds. 
Your rising sign (also known as ascending sign) usually depicts how you present to the outward world, the impression you may give of yourself to someone you have just met. Where as your Moon sign is the side of you show only to those closest to you, the inner you. Your moon & rising signs are determined by your exact time of birth, & can be ascertained by having your birth chart done by an astrologer or using a moon/rising calculator online. 

 What your rising & moon signs say about you:

Aries, Leo & Sagittarius 
Fire Element
Rising: Those with fire risings will come across as very self-assured & perhaps even a little short in their communication. They will confidently back their decisions. 
Moon: Fire moons will be spontaneous, outgoing, & vivacious, however only to those closest to them. They will have a hidden fire in their core that only comes out every now & then.
Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn Earth Element
Rising: Earth rising signs present outwardly as practical & grounded. They will be connected to themselves & will confidently express their goals in life. They may also be stubborn & immovable like a mountain. 
Moon: For the Earth moon signs they may have secret-alone behaviour that involves them systemising & organising their schedules, pantries & homes. They enjoy, actually they thrive, in their own company. 
Gemini, Libra & Aquarius Air Element 
Rising: Air risings will impress those around them with their open, balanced & free-flowing nature, & will have educated perspectives. They may also be indecisive & forgetful. 
Moon: If your moon is that of an air sign you will most likely be very social, curious & loquacious. You will express yourself clearly, enjoy socialising, in small doses, & share your opinions openly. 
Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces Water Element 
Rising: Those with water rising signs will make people feel at ease in their maternal & caring presence. They will present as openly sensitive, & may become easily offended. 
Moon: For those whose moon sign is that of water, though they may have hard shell, they are very sensitive underneath. They are very empathetic & take on the energy of others, which may drain them emotionally.
