Believe it or not, astrology can unlock so many doors to figuring yourself out — and you don’t have to be a whiz at it, either, to benefit from what the practice has to say. Decoding your birth chart (or natal chart) is an exciting way to uncover some truths about one’s personality and emotional core, not to mention what drives their desires. Considering we love knowing a little bit more about our favorite celebs, we took it upon ourselves to crack into Miss Sofia Richie‘s zodiac chart and see exactly what makes the blonde beauty tick.

There’s a lot of info in one’s natal chart and it can be a little daunting to explore … so we narrowed it down to four key aspects that are crucial — sun sign, moon sign, ascendant sign and midheaven — using her exact birth date, time and place. Let’s see what Sof is all about.

Let’s start with her sun sign.

The sun sign is the one we all know by heart, the one we ask each other about on the daily … the one, ultimately, the corresponds with your birthday. For the newly minted 21-year-old, that’s Virgo. Those hardworking, diligent “virgins” celebrate their big days between August 23 and September 22. Sof’s birthday falls just a day into the reign of the sign, on August 24.

What are Virgo suns all about? They’re into working for what they want and maintaining the drive to succeed — but sometimes their tendencies to overanalyze can bite them in the behind. You win some, you lose some!

Explain her moon sign, yo.

The moon sign is an interesting one because it’s one of the least known, yet most important aspects of your chart. This particular placement of your chart corresponds to your emotional state: how you process emotion, how you interpret it and who you become when emotions overcome logic. For Sofia, that moon sign is Libra.

How do Libra moons deal with their feelings? Considering Libra’s symbol is the scales of justice, balance and harmony is everything for them. So much so, that Libra moons feel best when staying neutral. But they also really love a partnership and emotionally thrive with a good mate by their side (Scott Disick, we salute you).

And what the heck is an ascendant sign??

Listen up, this one is interesting. Your ascendant sign (or rising sign) was literally ~rising~ over the horizon as you were born and it changes every two hours, making an accurate birth time crucial for a natal chart reading. This also underrated sign is eyeopening, in that it allows you insight into how others perceive you and your overall attitude in life. The model’s ascendant is in Sagittarius.

In the case of Sag ascendants, we’re looking at confidence, courage and a sense of adventure. Sounds like our girl Sof, who recently took her friends on a whirlwind 24-hour trip to Las Vegas for her big 21st birthday bash. She definitely has a knack for embarking on some seriously cool quests.

I’ve never heard of a midheaven, either!

No worries, we’ve got you there. This sign is another one we wish more folks knew about. Your midheaven sign (or the Medium Coeli or MC) is the highest point in your chart, and thus, it refers to your career aspirations, your reputation within society and how you earn it, good or bad. In the influencer’s case, she is also a Libra midheaven.

How do those with Libra in this placement make their way up in the world? They clear biases from their psyche, they pacify conflict. They listen, really listen, and learn. For a Libra MC, these are natural tactics to achieving that balance and harmony they so deeply love in their work life.

Thinking about how introspective, soft-spoken and diplomatic Sofia is in interviews, she reads like a textbook career Libra!
