So what are the Big 6 in Astrology? What does this phrase mean?
First, you should know that we're talking about Planets. When astrologers talk about the Big 6, they are referring to Planets.
You have 12 placements in your Charts, known as 12 Houses.
Each House has a meaning and contributes to your overall characterization. But that's not the main focus of this article.
The idea is Planets reside in these Chart Houses. Some are general Planets, that take years to move through signs, others are more "individual" planets that move faster through signs.
When astrologers interpret your chart, they focus more on these "individual", "fast" planets because the "slower" ones are too general, and speak more of a generation rather than an individual.
And that's how we get to the Big 6 in Astrology. There are 6 signs that talk about the person instead of a generation. And these are the sun, moon, rising, Mercury, Mars, and Venus.
So, if I analyse your chart I take a look at where are your sun, moon, rising, Mercury, Mars, and Venus placed.
The placement of the Sun indicates your Zodiac sign. This is what you traditionally know as your Sign. So when you say you're a "Taurus" you actually say (without probably even knowing it) that at the moment of your Birth the Sun was placed in Taurus.
