Introduction to Astrology and the Zodiac Signs


Last Updated on

Astrology and astrologers date back several millennia. The three Kings of the Bible were actually astrologers who were studying the motion of the stars. Astrologers pay attention to the relative positions of heavenly bodies. They believe that the position of the stars and planets at the time a person was born reflects aspects of their personality and can predict what is going to happen to them.

In astrology, there is the belief that life here on earth is strongly influenced by what is going on with the planets. Some believe that they can use the relative positions of the earth and other planets and stars in order to divine a person’s future. Others believe that astrology is just a form of superstition.

The History of Astrology

The earliest recorded origins of astrology were in the third millennium BCE. It has been present and a part of human culture ever since. Even in today’s time, people use it in the form of horoscopes, which are popularly read in magazines and newspapers. Astrology is Latin and comes from the word “astrologia”, which means astronomy.

One of the mottos of astrology is “as above, so below”. This means that the events of the heavens tell us a lot about what is going on in our own lives. It is the study of relationships and patterns that take place in the heavens. The four earth elements also play a big role in the study of astrology.

The Principles of Astrology

It is less a science and more a metaphysical practice. It is similar to other patterns and practices, such as feng shui, yoga, and acupuncture. As astrology is so old and is the basis of many other practices, it is called the “mother of all sciences”.

It is believed that the movements of the planets have an influence on time and what goes on here on earth. The first time on earth we experience is our birth, which is noted on the celestial clock as being a meaningful day. This is why many astrologers pay so much attention to the birth chart of a given individual.

With astrology, there is importance in knowing your birth chart. The three aspects of a person’s birth chart include the planet, the house, and the sign. The sign is the zodiac sign you were born with. The house is the radius on the celestial birth map that you were born in. The planet is the dominant planet that is in its greatest height at the house you were born.

The first thing you need to pay attention to is the sign you were born in. Each sign has a certain personality type that you take on as being a part of that particular sign. The Zodiac signs are considered a loose interpretation of who you are. There is more to your birth chart that fills in the details of your personality and behavior. The Zodiac Sign is also known as the Sun sign. The Sun sign is the essence of the basic nature in the broadest possible strokes. The rest of the chart fills in the details. Hold the Sun sign in your mind, as you go on to learn about the Moon. What kind of Cancer am I? The rest of your chart tells the story.

Astrology can tell you those things you are repelled by or things you are attracted to. When dealing with other people, you can use it to understand why you like some people but not others. Personality clashes are easier to understand if you know the zodiac sign of the individual person you are dealing with.

Astrology can also help you with dating and relationships. You can find out which zodiac signs you are most attracted to and which people you are most likely to have a long and happy relationship with. The Zodiac sign of the other person can tell you a great deal about the other person very quickly and can help you make love decisions.

Sun Signs

The Sun Signs, also known as Zodiac Signs

If you have ever been asked the simple question “What is your Zodiac Sign?” and you told them, well, I’m a “so and so” then you have already come in contact with your Sun Sign.

The Sun Sign, also known as the Zodiac Sign, is what the majority of all horoscopes are based on today. There are twelve signs, all of which will help describe your personality traits as well as your basic nature throughout your life span. It is your true self, the inner energy that shines from the depths of your soul.

The Meaning of Your Sun Sign

Since the sun is a star in the center of our solar system, a sun sign is basically describing your ultimate center self. A sun Sign will help make clear certain attributes and traits that may have been unclear to you.

It will help show you what you are powerful in or what you are dexterous at, your vitals in life. It tells what kind of person you are, whether you are a stable Earth sign such as a Taurus or if you are an unpredictable Water sign such as an Aquarius. Sun signs can help discover advantages that can help you move forward in life and advance your careers. You can play off of your positive feats and traits so you can achieve and succeed. Or you can find out your disadvantages and possible weaknesses that will help you grow as a person and confront certain demons. The Sun sign will show how your ego will evolve in all aspects and how it will learn and grow through experiences.

Recently the Sun signs have gained massive media attention as it has become quite popular for people to learn about their sun signs. Most people know of the Zodiac (Sun Signs) by the time they are in their teen years, if not sooner but due to the recent fad in astrology, especially with the Zodiac, it is not uncommon for parents to teach their young all about their signs.

The Compatibilities of Sun Signs

Another thing signs do that many are interested in hearing about is the fact that they help with finding a suitable mate. Each Sun Sign has its compatibility of what signs work best and click with each other. Each sign is different, and so it handles things differently. With relationships, signs can help you to better understand all of those around you, whether it is a feisty boss, a friendly coworker, your sister, or a love interest. Who doesn’t want to know as much as they possibly can about the people they care about? It can help your intimate relationships by knowing how certain signs will interact with one another, how they will spark, or clash with each other. It could even save you a lot of time or stop certain heartbreak from occurring. Sun Signs are an ultimate clue giver for understanding the opposite sex. The sun describes your basic nature, of who and what you are as you learn more about astrology and the signs you begin to find out more about yourself that you even imagined. It is a wonderful and awe-inspiring thing to learn more about yourself when you thought you knew every nick and cranny that there was to know. It is kind of creepy when you think about it.
