Here's how to recognize the Key Chart Components
sun Sun Sign
What you project!
It is the center light that you PROJECT in self expression!  Naturally, it desires to replicate the purpose, function and creative qualities apparent in the month in the season in which you were born. 

Moon Sign
Your emotional reactions

The Moon reflects light! Likewise, your Moon Sign indicates how you react or REFLECT back the energies that are projected at you.  This 28 day cycle places the Moon in a new sign every 2.5 days

The
Ascendant
(or Rising Sign)

Pinpoints your "Physical Spot of Being" and it is the mask of your physical
container—the first impression that you make to other people.

The daily rotation of the Earth quickly changes the sign "rising" on the eastern horizon. (This sign changes every 2 hours, except for extreme latitudes).
Since this sign pinpoints your place on the Earth, it defines your perspective of the Ever-Present, Ever Becoming Day—and how you view the world before your eyes. (It is also how others see you).
When your facial flesh is in neutral (not projecting or reacting with it's solar and lunar qualities), it usually reveals the shape of the underlying bone structure—which often reveals the shapes associated with the Rising Sign.  This skeletal shape strongly influences a person's body type.

Considerations that may alter physical appearance and personality
The Sign Where A Component Is Placed implants the nature and expressive qualities of that sign into the part of the personality associated with that component. For example, someone with a Moon in Leo can become quite dramatic when he or she gets "emotional".  
Planets In Conjunction with any component in a natal chart will alter the sign's expressive and physical qualities—by inducing properties of the sign associated with that planet. For instance, Saturn on the Ascendant will render "body shapings" associated with Capricorn. Squares, Trines and Sextiles also appear to change a sign's nature, but not as strongly as a Conjunction.
The Placement of the Ruler of the Sun, Moon or Rising Sign (via House and Sign) will alter the quality of the component's expression. For instance, as our Bob Dylan Snapshot describes, Geminis with their ruler Mercury in Taurus and the 5th house will become very Taurian in their creative work. On stage, Bob Dylan is immobile and fixed when he performs. This immovable quality is not what we would expect from a Gemini.
DNA prevails!  There are lots of Gemini Native Americans, but few with blonde hair and blue eyes. However, they still have a tendency to chatter.
