What Is The Purpose Of The Zodiac Sign ?

Jan 2, 2008
The signs of the Zodiac can give us great insights into our day to day lives, as well as the many talents and special qualities we possess. You can discover a great deal of relevant information about yourself through reading about your Zodiac sign. In this article, we'll tell you how you can use the information provided by your sign in order to improve your life.

The term zodiac denotes an annual cycle of twelve stations along the path of the sun. Astrologists use astronomical observations of the movements in the night sky for divinatory purposes. Each star sign has a different meaning, and your astrological chart is made up of the sun signs and their attributes, and the placement of the planets in the house of your unique chart.

You are more than just your Sun Sign which is the one you were born under. If you were born within a day or two of when the Sun changed signs, then you were born "near the cusp." Your Sun Sign could be either sign, since the date changes slightly from year to year. If you were born within 2 days of the sign change dates, you may have to consult an astrologer to find out your true Sun Sign.

Each zodiac sign reflects a different side of your personal experiences and personality, even though some of them are more emphasized than others. Based on the date of birth, place of birth and time of birth, an astrologist can give you a very accurate portrait of your character, as well as tell you many things about your past and future, gifts and difficulties. People from all cultures believe that astrology is one of the very best tools that there is for understanding an individual's potential, strengths and weaknesses.

Each of the Zodiac signs are also designated into elements. How these elements relate to one another is especially important when using astrology to determine a love match. Astrologists believe that each person is compatible or incompatible with other people based on their birth dates. To define this compatibility, your element group is compared to the other element groups in the zodiac chart.

Those born under the Zodiac signs Aries, Leo or Sagittarius belong to the element of fire which represents enthusiasm and strong will. The earth element includes Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn which represents practical and material concerns.

Gemini, Libra and Aquarius come from the air element and represents abstract thought. The water element includes Cancer, Scorpio and Pieces and represents feelings, emotions and empathy.

Your Zodiac sign can provide information that can help you lead a happier life by bringing to your attention your strengths and weaknesses. If your sign makes you predisposed to jealousy, you can work on being more trusting.

If you're born to be a leader, you can focus on getting ahead professionally. Many people begin their day by consulting their horoscope to see what the day will bring. That proves that the power of the Zodiac is still very much alive.
