Astrology deals with the interpretation of an individual’s natal chart. The astrological chart is built from the Earth’s two distinct movements:
its rotation around the Sun, which results in the cycle of the seasons and the length of daytime throughout the year,its rotation around its own axis, which rules the alternation of day and night.The position of the celestial bodies, as seen from the Earth and the place of birth, is established in connection with a system of coordinates based on the horizon and the zenith. For each astrological chart, the time and place of birth are processed in order to get markers that are specific to the individual. This is how it becomes possible to materialize the positions of the planets, the Sun, and the Moon in the window of heaven known as the Zodiac. The celestial belt where the Sun relentlessly follows his course, when seen from the Earth, is divided into twelve equal parts called zodiacal signs.
It all works out as if all the human featureswere represented within the whole twelve signs. Each sign reflects an independent and strong typology, complementary to the other signs, expressing by itself its nature and its personality with its characteristics, its tendencies and its motivations.We are offering a summary of each sign with its keywords and its typology. The meaning of the Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable qualities, as well as the meaning of the planets and the houses, are explained in the next chapters.
mention there is more to astrology than merely learning the zodiac signs and meanings on my “about astrology” page. This is true. To really be in touch with the beauty astrology has to offer, it requires a commitment to learning all aspects of the art.However, everybody knows that half the fun to astrology is learning about all the different zodiac signs and meanings for each. There’s somethingexciting and wonderful about reading the characteristics of our zodiac signs. We all smile and say “Yes, that’s me!” or “Wow, that really describes my personality!When we look at our zodiac sign dates (that is, the date we were born indicating our zodiac signs and meanings) we are looking at our sun sign. Sun signs refer to the position of the sun upon the time of our birth. I have described this in a bit more detail on my “about astrology” page found here..
Below, I have offered the twelve zodiac signs and meanings along with a summary of characteristics for each.
I’ve also made a quick-reference chart of zodiac sign dates viewable here. Print it out and learn which zodiac falls within a specific date range.
As you continue to study astrology, you can begin to associate these zodiac traits to your co-workers, friends and family – even strangers! Once you know the date a person is born and the zodiac signs and meanings associated with his/her birthday, you have some amazing deductive capabilities at your disposal.
Astrology is a window into unseen realms. It helps us learn who we are and others too. Further, it serves as a tool to enhance our understanding and compassion towards others.
For example, if your co-worker snaps at you in irritation and seems cranky this week, you may want to consult the zodiac signs and meanings for an explanation. If you find your co-worker is a Sagittarius, you know she’s usually pretty easy-going, so something major might be going on in her life. With a little more research, you may find that certain planets moving through her sign can cause your Sagittarian co-worker to be in a bit of a tailspin.
Knowing these details gives you more patience and compassion. Instead of barking back at your co-worker, you can empathize and understand that she’s just going through a phase – nothing personal.
Have fun with the zodiac signs and meanings below listed. Use them as a basic guide to help you understand the various personalities of the people in your life. But please, this is only a guide – I encourage you to study further and continue to gather your own knowledge on the fascinating subject of astrology
