Did you know that your zodiac sign in astrology can indicate you are highly sensitive or an Empath? Learn how to use your astrological birth chart to spot the signs and better protect yourself from negative energy, people and environments. Learn which astrological stone will help shield your aura.
Very few people seem to know this but there is a clear relationship between certain signs of the zodiac and your level of empathy and psychic sensitivity. This is often an indicator that someone is an Empath. An empath is someone that deeply feels others emotions, often confusing them with their own. Empaths and highly sensitive people can be like a sponge, they can absorb negative energies into their aura if they are not careful.
Understanding The Water Signs
In astrology, the twelve signs of the zodiac are ruled by a different element, fire, air, water or earth. There are three signs in each element group. The water signs are considered the most emotional, psychic and sensitive to energy. They are the Empath astrology signs. These signs are Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces. All three of these signs are empathic to some degree and they are commonly Empaths.
Empathic Sun Signs
Most people know their Sun Sign, also known as your Star Sign. This is the sign of the zodiac that the Sun was in at the time of your birth. Your Sun sign can represent a key part of your identity, self expression and life force energy. If your Sun sign is Scorpio, Cancer or Pisces this indicates your increased sensitivity to energy and could be a sign that you are an Empath.
You Are More Than Your Sun Sign
But it does not stop there, our personality is not just made up of our Sun Sign. The position of other planets and astrological alignments at the time of our birth paint a deeper picture of who we are in Astrology. The other two signs you should consider are your Moon Sign and your Rising Sign (also known as your Ascendant). These make up your core personality and go much deeper.
If you have ever consulted an Astrologer or have a copy of your Natal Chart (also known as your Birth Chart) then you will likely already know your Sun, Moon and Rising Sign. This is valuable information that can also indicate how empathic you are. If you don’t already know your Moon and Rising Sign then you can find it out (see the section below).
Finding Your Moon & Rising Sign
You will need your exact birth time ad location to calculate your Moon and Rising Sign. You should be able to get this data from your birth certificate. If you don’t want to visit an Astrologer there are lots of places online where you can find out your Moon and Rising Sign but few that use accurate software as good as that of a professional Astrologer.
I recommend Astro.com, it is professional, detailed and accurate. It is free to use and you don’t have to sign up to use it. Once you go there, click Free Horoscopes in the menu bar near the top of the page. On the drop down menu look under the Drawings & Calculations section. Then click Natal Chart, Ascendant. Once on this page follow the instructions for guest users if you’re not a member. It is a good idea to save the chart image and or print it off.
Once you have a Astro.com Natal Chart you can easily find your Rising Sign/Ascendant by looking at the red text in the top left. It says Ascendant: with your sign next to it. To find your Moon Sign, look at the box of symbols, planets and numbers on the left hand side under this. Go to the 2nd one down with the cescent moon symbol. Next to this will be your Moon Sign, it appears abriviated here.
