Do we use Sun Sign or Rising Sign for our Horoscope?

Modified on Wed, 04 Oct 2023 at 11:23 AM

We use Sun Sign astrology for our horoscope.  The method for Sun Sign astrology places whichever zodiac sign you're reading for at the first house position. Then the current planetary placements are interpreted by sign, house, and aspect.  It is unknown when this method originated, but it was popularized in the 1930s and helped make astrology more accessible to the masses. The idea is that most people will know their birth date and therefore their sun sign, whereas many do not know their birth time, which is required to determine the rising sign.  So yes, knowing your rising sign and reading your horoscope for that sign will likely be more accurate and specific, but the Sun Sign horoscope still holds as a tried and true method. This is why we recommend folks read for both their sun and rising signs!
