Virgo. Virgo is an earth elemental sign and virgos are known to be very grounded individuals. They could be considered "Bearers for Details".
|It is possible to have an ascendant, a moon sign, and a sun sign all in the same sign?|
True. One has nothing to do with the other in terms of exclusion. Your sun sign is determined by the month period you were born in, your moon sign has a much shorter 2-4 day window, and your ascendant has a tiny, one-hour window.
|Chiron is a somewhat recent addition to many astrology charts. What is Chiron?|
An asteroid. Charles Kowal discovered Chiron in 1977. Its diameter is about 250-350 miles wide and it's orbit lies between Saturn and Uranus. It's meaning in a chart is thought of as regeneration and spirituality. It is still widely debated about, however.

|Where would you find your ascendant in an astrology chart?|
1st House. Your ascendant or rising sign is determined at the time of birth and is found in the first house. Each sign corresponds to a planet and while an ascendant is not a sign, it could be said that it corresponds to Earth.
|Where you were born (location) also has an influence on what your ascendant will be?|
True. Not only is the time of your birth important to figuring out what your rising sign is but also so is the location of where you were born. The latitudes and longitudes of where the Earth was on its axis at that time also help to determine your ascendant.

|Another name for the Midheaven is known as?|
Medium Coeli. This is one of the four angles of a horoscope and is abbreviated in many charts as M.C. It marks the cusp of the Tenth House.
|When a planet moves backwards through the zodiac, what do astrologers refer to this as?|
Retrograde & retrograde. Planets do not move backwards in the solar system or in their orbits but can seem to due to an illusion of the angle watched from Earth. This usually denotes a weak and negative influence.
|Name the three fire signs:|
Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo. Fire is an element and there are four of them. They are the most "outgoing" of the signs in many ways.
|The moon cannot move in a retrograde position.|
True. The sun and the moon never go retrograde. Only the planets do.
|What lies directly opposite from the ascendant in one's astrological chart?|
Descendant. This marks the cusp of the 7th house and is one of the four angles in a chart. It helps to channel power through relationships.
|There are three qualities in which the signs of the zodiac fall under. Which quality is an Aquarius?
Fixed. Even though Aquarius is an air sign, Aquarians are known for having a fixed view of the world (although not the way it is presently). They are known for being very humanistic and care for humanity as a whole more than individuals sometimes and are considered aloof. They do not like the structure and boundaries of society.
