Astrology is the study of the movements and positions of celestial bodies and their supposed influence on human affairs and terrestrial events. Whether you are a strong believer of astrology or just checking out the horoscope section in your magazine or newspaper, reading what your sign tells you about your future is exciting. We are faced with so much uncertainty in life that reading our horoscopes is our way of placing our faith in the stars.
While it is obvious you already know which star sign you fall under, there are still so many things you might not know about your horoscope and astrology in general. Check them out below and see for yourself.
You need your exact time of birth to accurately pin down your sign
You may already know that to identify your zodiac sign, you will need your birth date. However, if you want to accurately pin down what your sign is, your exact time of birth is needed. There are 12 zodiac signs and each one of them takes up an equal portion on the zodiac wheel. Thus, your sign relates to the position of the sun at the time of your birth.
The signs are divided into water, fire, earth, and air
The 12 zodiac signs are divided into 4 different groups. Water signs include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are under the Air element. Fire signs are Aries, Leo, Sagittarius. While the remaining signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are under the Earth signs. Whatever element your sign may fall under, this is said to predict components of your personality.
Zodiac signs have qualities too
You may have heard about the elements mentioned above, but pretty sure you haven’t heard about zodiac signs having qualities. These star qualities are Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable, basically dividing the zodiac signs into three groups. Cardinal signs include Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Cardinal is associated with initiation. The signs under Fixed are Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Taurus and are associated with digging in and stubbornness. Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces are mutable signs and are associated with flexibility and communication.
Scientists believe that our signs predetermine our personality
Knowing your exact time of birth is crucial for this one as this will accurately predict what your personality is based on your sign. The birth time of the person makes predictions more personal and unique to the individual and scientists believe that some aspect of personality of a child may have been decided before birth.
Your sign may influence what you look like
Not only do signs somehow influence a person’s personality, but it is said to impact your appearance. To mention a few, Sagittarius people are said to have long, muscular legs. Those born under the Leo sign are thought to have cat-like features.
Your favorite color has something to do with your sign
Our signs may also have an effect on why we gravitate to certain colors. This is the reason why some horoscope readings include lucky colors in their prediction. So if you are in need of some luck, then go wear that shirt with your favorite color.
You have more than one sign
Your zodiac sign is just one representation of the many aspects under astrology, which is your sun sign. You still have a zodiac sign according to your moon sign and many others. You will need a personal chart made for you once important details are provided.
