Key Difference between Ascendant Sign, Moon Sign and Sun Sign


Your birth chart is the window to your inner core and Vedic Astrology is the source to take a peek. The signs play a significant role in your life. Although sun signs are popularly the most commonly followed signs, moon signs and more importantly, ascendant signs have garnered more significance in Vedic Astrology

Before you get enlightened on their relevance and individual importance in Vedic astrology, it is important for you to understand what each sign represents.

Take a look at how Ascendant Sign, Moon Sign, and Sun Sign differ from one another. Yes, the distinctions are beyond your perception of Vedic astrology on the whole.

What is an Ascendant Sign?

A common man who knows zilch about astrology, perhaps, will not give much importance to rising/ascendant signs. Let me break it to you, it is the most important. While it is said that that ascendant sign shows how the world perceives you, there is so much more to it.

Although the above statement is far from farcical, it represents your thought process, mindset, reactions, and responses to possibly everything happening to and around you.

Do you understand its significance now? Know how your ascendant sign can pave the way to success through a personal consultation with me.

Ascendant, in Vedic Astrology, is also known as Lagna, the first house of your Kundli. It acts as the foundation of your birth chart, this means, its relevance is deemed the most important as it is somehow interconnected with the other houses.

Unlike your sun sign, the ascendant signs change every two hours.

What is a Moon Sign?

Your Moon Sign has a great significance in Vedic Astrology. It represents your inner state of mind and soul. That said, it is an indication of the strength of your mind and its inclinations. Moon is considered the queen mother in the world of Vedic Astrology. Capable of granting you immense prosperity and mental power, it affects your emotional capabilities.

Your moon sign would be the sign where the moon is placed in your birth chart. Its placement is significant in terms if of your mental health and progress.

Not only that, the moon might be the smallest among all planets in the solar system. However, in Vedic Astrology, it is deemed quite significant since its proximity to earth has a huge effect on humans.

Now that the relevance is cleared, it is important to know that the more affected the moon is in the birth chart, the worse it gets for our emotions and heart. This is why, its significance is bigger than the sun, if not more relatable. But strictly from a psychological standpoint, the moon sign, its placement, and condition, rightfully garner all the attention it deserves. The moon signs change every 2 1/2 days.

Do you want to know if the moon in your Kundli is exalted or debilitated? Either way, big changes are in order. Know how your moon sign is the key to your prosperity through a personal kundli reading. Contact today!

What is a Sun Sign?

The most commonly followed aspect of astrology in the cosmos. Yes, the relevance matters and reflects on your personality. But, not to an extent of deciding your life path and decisions compared to ascendant and moon signs.

Yes, you could be an adventure junkie being a Sagittarius or a workaholic being a Capricorn but it is not enough to decide your choices and decisions in life. Your ascendant and moon signs will always have an impact on you, regardless of your sun sign.

Fairly speaking, your character and personality will have the effect of your sun sign but not as strong as your ascendant sign. Your mind may relate to the traits of your sun sign but in the end, would work according to the condition of your moon sign.

As most of you all know, sun signs roughly change on a monthly basis.

Generally, daily, monthly, or yearly horoscopes are stated in terms of your sun sign, which is why- they can never be compared to the power of a personal kundli reading through a Vedic astrologer.


  • Which is more important sun moon or rising sign?

While your sun sign could indicate your zodiac personality, your rising (ascendant) sign and moon sign are the most important in Vedic astrology. If it has to be just one, then your Lagna (ascendant sign) is the most important.

  • Is moon sign the same as rising sign?

No, your rising sign is the first house of your birth chart and it could be any sign just like your zodiac sign. Your moon sign, on the other hand, is the sign wherein the moon is placed, again, any sign. Think of it this way, your ascendant sign is your instinct while your moon sign is your emotion.

Understanding Vedic astrology begins with bringing clarity and assessing the true significance and difference of the three major signs— ascendant, moon, and sun sign. Life is a never-ending game and our planets and their placement direct our life paths and concerning decisions. That said, there is more to understanding these signs as it differs from person to person. It would be best to take charge of the challenges in life through a personalized Kundli assessment.
