Signs of the Zodiac - When the Stars Speak

March 25, 2018




Understanding the signs of the Zodiac


The stars have a lot to say. They influence you everyday, whether you are knowledgeable or receptive to this or not.


If you are interested in learning more about yourself and what has helped to make you who you are since birth, understanding the signs of the zodiac might be fascinating to you. Even skeptics might find themselves surprised by some of the accuracies they find while studying their signs.


If anything, it’s always fun to explore something from a different perspective. Astrology has been present for centuries and rooted in beliefs across the world.


Take a moment to analyse yourself and those close to you and see if you can uncover some truth from the stars’ alignments.


Sun Signs

The most popular aspect of astrology and what you might already know is your sun sign. To figure out your sun sign all you need to know is your date of birth.


Then you can probably find the horoscope section in your local paper or online and see what sign your birth date falls within.


There are twelve signs of the zodiac, meaning that the sign that the sun was traveling through at the time of your birth is your sun sign.

The position of the sun in your birth chars governs your individuality, distinctive style and your drive to fulfill your goals in life.

If you are born at the very beginning or end of an astrological sign, you are on the ‘cusp.’  To be more specific, you are on a ‘cusp’ if your birthdate is within the first five days or the last five days of a sign.


If this is the case for you, you are under the influence of both signs, however, your true sun sign holds the stronger influence over you. 

The twelve signs of the zodiac are:

 Aries (March 21-April 19)
