The Signs and the Planets

As you start to get into astrology, you’ll start to see that you don’t just have one sign. Maybe you thought you were a Sagittarius, but then you find out you have a Cancer Moon and a Capricorn Venus. Sagittarius is actually your Sun sign. Each planet represents a different part of us and the Sun is your ego and your heart. The Moon would be your emotions and inner self. Venus is your relationships. While your heart may be Sagittarius, your emotions can be Cancer and your partnerships can be Capricorn.

If you want to figure out what sign your planets are, feel free to ask me for help, or you can figure it out yourself through astro.com > free horoscopes >drawing and calculations > Natal Chart, Ascendant. It will give you a picture of your birth chart (which may be a bit confusing) and a list of your planets and their sign.

Interpreting the placements can be a bit harder than just figuring them out, but there are tricks to help. Each planet rules a sign. If you understand that planet, it can make it easier to understand that sign. If you understand that sign, it can make it easier to understand that planet.
