Have you ever had a conversation with your friends about what “sign” you are? If you said yes to this question you’ve probably wondered more about how your zodiac sign affects your personality. If you said no then you probably don’t believe. Astrology is based off the 12 zodiac signs. Aries. March 21-April 19. Taurus. April 20-May 20. Gemini. May 21-June 20. Cancer June 20th- July 22nd. Leo. July 23-August 22. Virgo. August 23rd-September 22. Libra. September 23rd-October 22. Scorpio. October 23rd- November 21. Sagittarius. November 22 – December 21. Capricorn. December 22 – January 19, and Aquarius January 19-February 18.

Most people don’t believe in astrology because they don’t think they’re anything like their Sun Sign and they’ve only come to know about the basics of astrology. The sun sign represents the day you were born on. For example, if you were born on September 9th your sun sign would be Virgo. According to the basics of astrology Virgos are the “nerds” of the zodiac. Ruled by the bad side of mercury the planet of communications, Virgos tend to be analytical, fussy, extremely observant, intelligent, picky, hardworking, helpful, reliable and precise. This part of astrology is where most people steer away usually saying “that sounds nothing like me, and I’m a virgo”. But what these people don’t know is that there is so much more than just the Sun sign in your birth chart.

The Birth Chart or Natal Chart is a full analysis of the signs a person was born with based on the time of their birth and where they were born. This birth chart maps out not only your sun sign but the twelve houses a person acquired when they were born. Confusing? Each planet and zodiac is naturally associated with a house. Houses represent anything from possessions, money, all the way to your home and family. For example if you don’t feel like your sun sign then maybe you’re more like your rising sign aka your first house. The first house is commonly referred as the House of Self. Therefore, it describes your personality and natural demeanor and even your physical appearance! Let’s take Beyonce Knowles for example. According to her natal chart she was born on September 4, 1981 in Houston Texas making her a Virgo Sun sign, and a Libra rising sign. Her rising sign implies that she is rather attractive. Which in many people’s opinion is true because she’s a worldwide known singer/dancer. Her libra rising sign also implies that she takes much pride in her appearance and she is inclined to musical or artistic talent.  

This being said, Astrology is something that more people should take into consideration when they want to know more about someone but should always be careful not to weigh their judgements solely on a person’s astrological sign.
