Primal Triad

Definition of Primal Triad

The primal triad is a feature in a natal chart where the astrologer examines the Sun sign, Moon sign, and rising sign. These three elements have the greatest influence on the personality, for they reveal the first impressions, the innermost feelings, and the outward self. How significantly the primal triad impacts a chart depends on how the Sun, Moon, and ascendant are aspected to each other and to the other planets and positions in the natal chart, and what planets happen to be making a transit to them at any given time.
