For a long time, I have known that there’s far more to astrology than your Sun sign (your main sign). Hence, the Primal Triad starts to become more important.
I am a Libran, yet I have seen so many variations in personalities and fortunes of other Librans, that I knew just being born under the same sun wasn’t enough.
Going a bit deeper into Human Design, I have learnt that your Incarnation Cross in Human Design is based on your Primal Triad in astrology.
My Primal Triad is:
Sun = Libra; Moon = Scorpio; Rising/Ascendant = Aries
Your sun sign dictates your zodiac personality.
I am a Libran. This is an air sign, a cardinal sign (is on the corner of the chart, or on the equator) and its ruler is the planet Venus. Librans are peaceful, fair, and they hate being alone. Partnership is very important for them. They are fascinated by balance and symmetry, and on the constant chase for justice and equality. This is someone ready to do nearly anything to coiled conflict.
Air signs need constant mental stimulation – they tend to have a strong intellect and keen mind. They will be inspired by good books, insurmountable discussions and people who have a lot to say.
Your moon sign represents your emotions, your inner mood, and your emotional mode of operation.
My moon sign is Scorpio. Scorpio is a water sign, with a fixed quality, and it’s ruled by Pluto. Scorpios are passionate and assertive people. They are determined and decisive, and will research until they find out the truth. They are great leaders, always aware of the situation and being resourceful.
As a water sign, they live to experience and express emotions, although Scorpios tend to keep their emotions to themselves. They will keep your secrets. With Pluto as its ruler (transformation and regeneration) they are known to be cool and calm. Scorpios hate dishonesty.
Your rising or ascendant sign is the lenses through which your other traits shine. This sign is much more obvious immediately to others, until they get to know you better.
My rising is Aries. This is the first sign in the Zodiac. It is a fire sign, it is also cardinal (on the exact opposite side from Libra), and it is ruled by the planet Mars. The presence of Aries always marks the beginning of something energetic and turbulent. They are continuously looking for dynamic, speed and competition, always being the first in everything.
Thanks to its ruling planet Mars, Aries is one of the most active signs. It is in their nature to take action, sometimes before they think about it well. Aries rules the head and leads with the head, often literally walking head first, leaning forwards for speed and focus. Its representatives are naturally brave and confident, and possess youthful strength and energy.
