The sun determines your ego, identity, and "role" in life. It's the core of who you are, and is the sign you're most likely to already know. Your Sun is in Virgo, meaning you are particularly smart, responsible, hard-working, and self-sacrificing.

You have a need to be wholesome. It's in your eighth house, meaning you feel the need to distinguish yourself from others through darkness, taboos, rebirth, sex, and transformation.
Your ascendant is the "mask" you present to people. It can be seen in your personal style and how you come off to people when you first meet. Some say it becomes less relevant as you get older. It changes every two hours, so if it doesn't make sense, text your mom to confirm your birth time. Your Ascendant is in Aquarius, meaning you come across as broadminded, intellectual, and prone to abstraction, though somewhat detached or abrupt in your dealings with the real world. Your unconventional interests may seem eccentric or pretentious to others.
The moon rules your emotions, moods, and feelings. This is likely the sign you most think of yourself as, since it reflects your personality when you're alone or deeply comfortable.

It's in your second house, meaning you find security and safety through money and material possessions.
Mercury determines how you communicate, talk, think, and process information. It also indicates how you learn. It is the mind's planet. Your Mercury is in Virgo, meaning your intellect is analytical, precise, and diligent.

Once you decide you want to do something, you don't hold back. It's in your ninth house, meaning you put a lot of energy into philosophy, faith, education, politics, and travel.
