There are 12 sun signs in the zodiac. Each has their own unique influence on our lives. Even though the sunsign is an important part of the whole astrological picture, in and of itself it does not mean a great deal. What do I mean? Well, there are many things that make up a person's birth chart, and the sun sign is just one small part of it.
You have to consider all things, including the moon signs, all the aspects, conjunctions, etc... So don't feel too bad if the sign information in these pages are not 100% totally "you". There are also other factors that effect "who" we are. Things like dramatic events in our childhood, or early relationships and even health reasons. A person who suffered a severe health issue as a child, something that might effect your mind, might very well throw the whole astrology thing completely out of wack.
We are a product of our experiences in life, as well as genetics and other factors. Sunsigns only give us a partial picture. However, if you know yourself very well, and can consider the different influences that have been in your life, and can put the whole thing into proper perspective, then there is much to be gained by looking at your birthchart.
Also, if you feel very strongly that the sign explanation is not "you" I strongly encourage you to have your entire birthchart done so that you can spot any abnormal influences that may be present.
The Zodiac Signs And You
Extremely popular on the web, in newspapers and even booklets in bookstores are sun-sign astrology. Some people are intrigued by these, while others use it as a spring-board to delve deeper into the subject. Sun Sign astrology logically divides the earth's population into 12 distinct zodiac signs. These are considered the twelve basic personality types. The people in each group get their characteristics from whatever sign that the sun was passing thorough at the time they were born.
Variations From Your Zodiac Sign Description
How come so many of us fail to fit into the mold of our sign, while others are extremely spot-on? This is, as mentioned above, where proper astrology study comes in. Our sun is just one of the ten planets in any given person's chart. (or horoscope). It represents only the inner self, and the ways in which we prefer to deal with things.
Studying Astrology Basics
A study of the zodiac signs in a great way to grasp the basics of astrology, and as many have written and told me, it can be extremely accurate. Astrology teaches that everyone is nothing more then a complex and subtle mix of traits, represented by all the planets, and where and how these particular traits effect you is determined by what is know as the "ascendant" AKA "rising sign". The word "horoscope" is a word derived from the greek "hoscopos" meaning "I watch that which is rising".
The Ascendant or "Rising Sign"
As we see, the word horoscope originally meant nothing more then the ascendant was considered. The ascendant being the point in the zodiac rising over the horizon at the moment of birth. NOW you know why custom birthcharts require your time of birth and location of birth! Only with this information can it be calculated. Once you figure out your rising sign, you may discover that the zodiac sign, canned descriptions for you are much more meaningful. However, nothing is quite as accurate as having your own birthchart done for you.
