Do You Know Your Moon Sign?

There's more to it than just your sun sign.

Do You Know Your Moon Sign?

So I don’t read my daily horoscope or look up my sign’s lucky numbers to make decisions but I do believe that your sign has some power over your innate characteristics. Whether you’re a skeptic or not I have decided a brief break-down of the horoscope is necessary. You may learn a lot more about yourself than you ever expected.

First off, there are three parts to your horoscope. A lot of people think that their sun sign makes up their entire being and this is why we often dismiss the traits and predictions we here about this one facet. We’re not looking at the whole picture.

Three Parts:

Sun Sign: This is the core of your being, who you are on a general and usually conscious level. This part of the horoscope only considers the position of the sun when you were born and is divided into twelve parts of the year (not including the newest addition, Ophiuchus, because I refuse to accept that everyone’s horoscopes have changed, especially considering how accurate mine is).

Ascendant/Rising Sign: This represents how others see you, your social perception if you will. It’s difficult to see ourselves the way that others perceive us but our rising sign is probably the most accurate representation of that. It’s our social presence if you will. The rising sign changes every two hours meaning the time you were born is incredibly important to finding out more about your external self. It is based on the Zodiac sign that was ascending the East horizon at your time of birth.

Moon Sign: Now your moon sign is your inner core, your emotional home base, the moon has been said to govern our moods, the way we love, feel, and fear. Moon signs change every two and a half days or so and really get at the unguarded you. We can explore moon signs to greater understand our intimate relationships and the types of people we are attracted to.

Taking into account all three parts of the horoscope is the only way to find some accuracy is what many call a pseudo-science. But check out these links that help determine your sun sign , ascendant, and moon sign .

Below I’ve taken the time to condense some characteristics of the signs if you’re interested. Even if you’re a non-believer, you may learn something about yourself if you invest just a little amount of time into self-reflection of your signs.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
