When you have the same moon sign or rising sign as your sun sign, you have a double zodiac sign. This indicates that when you were born, the Moon or rising planet in your birth chart was in the same sign as the Sun, amplifying the influence of that sign's characteristics. Being born under a double zodiac sign is usually not an advantage or disadvantage, but rather a chance to share some traits with someone else.
For example, if you were born under the double sign of Taurus and Scorpio, you would have these traits amplified for both good and bad. You would also likely find it difficult to make up your mind about some things because both signs are rational and emotional, so there's no way to fully understand one without understanding the other. Also, some people who are double zodiac signs may feel compelled to take on roles that reflect both their sun sign and moon sign - for example, someone born under the double sign of Aries and Libra might work as a teacher of young students, since teachers are associated with Aries which is their sun sign. However, they might also play sports - since athletes are associated with Libra which is their moon sign - because they want to show their ability at something besides just teaching children.
Being born under a double zodiac sign can also be a disadvantage if the two signs are conflicting.
The sun sign expresses who you are. The sun is at the heart of our solar system, the moon is the nearest celestial object to us, and the rising sign marks the start of our birth chart (while also subsequently determining everything else about it). So your sun sign determines many things about you, such as what traits you have, what planets are dominant in your chart, and so on.
Your sun sign influences how you think, act, and feel. It can be described as your "personal style" of living. Your rising sign, which changes every day, also affects what traits you exhibit and how you're perceived by others. For example, if you were born on January 1st, then your sun sign is determined by where it is located in the sky when you rise on January 1st. If you come out of bed looking like a model, then you're probably born under the sign of the lion. If not, then you're more likely to show up to work looking like yesterday's lunch.
You can determine your sun sign by looking at the stars when you arise on any given morning. Just make sure that you're standing in the right direction with respect to north. Then find the constellation that represents your sun sign. It should be easy to spot since it will be hovering directly over your house when you look up.
Is it possible to have two zodiac signs? No, not exactly. People born on a zodiac cusp are unique individuals whose date of birth combines the energy and features of two distinct signs together, resulting in a singular astrological personality with mixed qualities. The cusps are: Cancer-Capricorn (cerebral or intellectual traits combined with emotional sensitivity), Gemini-Pisces (imagination and intuition paired with perceptiveness), Leo-Aquarius (charm and charisma coupled with practicality), Virgo-Libra (detailed thinking and careful planning balanced with a desire for freedom), Scorpio-Ophiuchus (intensity and ambition paired with awareness of one's limits).
People who were born during a particular time of year share many characteristics because they were all born within minutes of each other. Due to this reason, some people believe that they can be different zodiac signs because they were born under different planets. However, this is not true; each person is only born with one zodiac sign and cannot change signs later in life. The zodiac signs are assigned at birth and remain the same throughout one's lifetime.
Different zodiac signs may appear similar because they share some traits related to their chart position. For example, someone who was born under the sign of Cancer may look like they have a soft side because they are sensitive by nature.
Your Sun sign determines your zodiac personality, while your Moon sign, the second most important influence in your horoscope chart after the Sun, reflects your emotions and inner mood. Your sun sign may be deduced from your birth date and month. The 12 signs of the zodiac are assigned to each planet in astrology, with Sun representing humanity as a whole and Earth being the common ground for all planets. Your moon sign is the one you receive from your moon's position at birth.
The sun sign influences that you find most evident in your daily life are the ones that rule your day-to day activities. For example, if you were born under the sign of Taurus, you would have two main traits associated with this sign: You're stable and reliable, and you like things done the old-fashioned way: hand over fist, heart on your sleeve. These characteristics show up in your daily life as integrity and commitment. If you weren't able to keep your word, you might lose your job to someone who can. People would probably stop trusting you because you could never be counted on to do anything you said you'd do.
The sun sign also affects what interests you, your career choices, and even the type of health problems you encounter. The zodiac signs explain why some people get sick more often than others.
Calculating your entire date, location, and time of birth, as well as your position around the moon, yields your moon sign. Your moon sign is likely to be different from your sun sign; for example, you might be a Taurus, but your lunar sign is Sagittarius. However, most astrologers believe that your moon sign can give some insight into how you process emotions.
The four moon signs are called: Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, and Virgo. They represent the parts of the moon when it is in each of these signs. The mental processes that are associated with each sign are described below.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) - Cancerians are emotional first, thinking later. They tend to take on other people's feelings, sometimes to their own detriment. They also have a hard time saying "no" to others.
Leo (July 23-August 22) - Leos are practical first, emotional later. They like to use their brains before they use their hearts. They like to look after number one. They also have a hard time accepting help from others.
Scorpio (October 24-November 21) - Scorpios are emotional first, practical later. They feel everything deeply and express themselves strongly. They like to work alone or with a few close friends. They also have a hard time showing weakness or failure.
