Astrology Basics

Hello, and welcome! If you are here, you are probably here because you are curious about what exactly Astrology is. First, however, I am going to chat with you a bit on why I am qualified to hand you this information.

     Hi! I’m Crescent. I have been studying Astrology for a few years, and combine my Astrology knowledge with my intuition to receive messages you need to hear. Many of my past lives have worked with the stars, so a lot of my intuitive messages come from them. My goal is to help guide you to be the best you that you can be, and to take charge of your life by making the planets and their placements work for you and not the other way around. Now, let’s dive in.

We may be familiar with our sun sign- which rules our self-image, but there is way more to that. How do we think? Feel? Express? React? What are our strengths? Weaknesses? Let me explain the other planets and what aspects of your life they rule.

Moon rules our emotions- ever hear the saying “Everyone is acting up because it is a full moon?” There is some truth to that! The moon very much does effect how we feel- and where it was when we were born shows us how we experience our emotions. For example- If the moon was in Libra, the person may experience emotion is more in justness- you will catch them saying “That’s not fair!” or downplaying their emotions because others are going through much worse. Another example is the moon in Cancer- this is more intense, sensitive, and protective energy and that plays out in how one will experience their emotions.

Venus is all about what you find attractive- aesthetic wise and relationship wise. Venus in Gemini may find that they are attracted to intellect, books, and are also very social and flirty. They do not like to commit, they prefer to explore all the options and this is very different from a Venus Capricorn which is very serious, likes everything to be a certain way, and are very reserved when it comes to relationships.

Mars is how we act, desire, and how we express ourselves. Mars in Aries is direct, but like a firework it never lasts long. There is that burst and then it is done. This is also true for anger- they get very hot-headed but it never lasts. They are not known to hold grudges, Now, Mars in Cancer would be very protective to those they care about, and while they may seem scary like an angry mama bear, they are very sensitive and will be seen as overly-emotional (depending on the moon sign, but I will get into that later).

Jupiter is the planet of abundance, growth, and knowledge. This is not always a positive thing though- there is such a thing as an abundance of negative things, and there are placements which can show struggles with learning certain topics. For example, Jupiter in Sagittarius would love to learn and explore everything, which can lead to people thinking you are a bit of a know-it-all. On the other hand, Jupiter in Capricorn may focus more on one topic at a time, and really want to take the time to specialize in a topic before going into it. Capricorn is also very serious, and are also very hard on themselves so when it comes to being disappointed in themselves, this becomes very likely.

Saturn is all about ambition, structure, and restrictions. For example, if Saturn is in Gemini that would mean that they are easily frustrated because they feel overwhelmed. However, they are also really great at communicating and going around those barriers because of their creativity and ambition. If in Aquarius, however, you will find that that person tends to be really skeptical and impartial. They don’t like thinking of the future, and are more focused on the now.

Now, this information is all great, but there is one more thing- your rising sign. This is the sign people typically will pick up on first- this is the sign that represents how others perceive you, especially for first impressions. If someone has a Leo rising, they tend to be strong leader types and are very friendly. People tend to naturally gravitate towards them. Libra Risings on the other hand will be perceived to be fair, intelligent, as well as a tad flirtatious without even trying.

This is a chart- to be specific this is the chart of nobody in particular but let’s pretend it is your chart. You can see how all the planets and placements have those lines connecting some of them to one another? This is how all the planets communicate with one another. This shows us how certain signs can be shown in practicality. If your placements were ingredients for a cake, these aspects are how they mix with one another. Some can be amazing (like strawberries and chocolates) and others can be challenging (ice cream and ketchup). This is where I come in- I look at this chart and I explain to you exactly what it means and how you can use this information in your life!
