How do you read your chart? First find out where the Sun is: The Sun is the pivot part of the chart. The Sun, location and sign colors the entire chart. It also indicates the most important issue the chart has to discuss.
Look for where the Moon The moon rules your instincts, emotions, and to a degree your rapport with the general public. This is your “instinct” your “feel”.
Next Look at the Ascendant. The ascendant, is the cusp of the First House. This is the way you appear to the world-(your appearance, your initial approach to the world). Some older books say that this also indicates the nature of your birth: if you have Mars rising, your birth probably was surgically assisted, or you came out in a tempered fit.
The Top of the Chart: Midheaven. Public standing, career, you place in the social hierarchy. (Place in this world)
There’s more of course: where the bulk of your planets are, what other planets aspect the Sun, Midheaven, Ascendant, and much more.
