So are you Leo ? or Aquarius ? or Capricorn – No WAIT !!!

Well, what does that mean dont Get Confused ? We crack them all …
You know we see Birth chart as the sky – the sky at the time of your birth. Not today’s sky.
Note where your Sun is placed: In which Sign ? – that becomes your SUN SIGN.
Note where Moon is placed in which sign of the sky the day and time you were born – that becomes your MOON SIGN.
The Ascendant or the Lagna is the SIGN (Not Planet) that rises in the EAST when you were born (or the 1st house)
Lets take an Example. Lets say someone just took birth 2-3 days back. Lets say, 22 October, 2016 at 2:24 pm IST in Mumbai, India.
The Sky at the time of Birth can be represented as below:
