Virgo Season sees you more social than normal. This moment wants you to enjoy your besties, show up for the parties, and make an effort to get to the events that pique your curiosity. You are more than likely to meet others that help you to think outside the box and steer you towards unexpected and interesting adventures. Virgo Season sets your career on a trajectory of success.

Virgo Season brings you innovative business deals and new ways of working in your collaborations. You actually have many signs in your birth chart — one for each of the significant celestial bodies in our solar system! Each of these signs is important perhaps equally so, depending on who you talk to! Your birth chart is a wide and wondrous world of cosmic information that is uniquely you. So while sun, moon, and rising signs are really just the tip of a very large iceberg, understanding these three signs together will give you a much fuller look at your personal astrology than a sun sign will alone.
It makes sense why these three signs are especially significant to who you are. The sun is, quite obviously, necessary for our existence and is literally the center of our solar system, so naturally it has a significant place in astrology. The moon is the closest celestial object to us here on Earth, so again, one can see why its astrological influence would also be especially notable. Lastly, your rising sign represents the very beginning of your birth chart and from there, determines the rest of your chart's placements, too — again making it a vital part of your basic astrological self.
That said, let's take a quick journey through the basic explanations of sun signs, moon signs, and rising signs so you can start applying them to your life and making the most of astrology. Bustle chatted with fabulous astrologers Lisa Stardust , Renee Watt , and Ashley Otero to get the scoop on this important astro triad, so read on.

Over the millennia, these observations have been refined and expanded to give us the many associations that go along with each sign.
For many people, it's the only sign they know! As mentioned earlier, many horoscopes are based on sun signs alone, and it's usually what someone is referring to when they ask you what your sign is or state their own.
All you need to calculate your sun sign is the month and date of your birth. This makes it easy to do simple pop astrology, as people don't need to delve into the rest of their chart or even find their birth time, in most cases in order to find their sign. So just as the sun is the center of our solar system and the root of life on Earth, your sun sign represents the center of you , or the core of who you are. When it comes to your personality, your sun sign is a constant; it's your core at a basic level.
