If you are born between July 23rd and August 22nd, you are a Leo; this is your sun sign. Your Sun sign is said to determine your basic approach to life and your general nature. However, your two other signs, your Moon sign and your Rising sign (ascendant), greatly contribute to your personality, character and temperament. Your Moon sign reveals your inner self and gives insight to the way you handle your fears, emotions and matters of the heart. Your Rising sign–or your ascendant–reveals the way that others see you based on your general impression on people and the way you spontaneously react to certain situations. The unique combination of your Sun, Moon and Rising signs is what makes you uniquely you.
