Your astrological sign — the constellation that The Sun was passing through on the day you were born — corresponds closely to your personality and general disposition. If you’re new to astrology, the very first thing you’ll want to figure out is your sun sign. Below, we’ve covered all the basics of each sign to help you take a deeper dive into some of the things that make you, you. It’s all written in the stars, after all!
Determining Your Sun Sign
According to the zodiac, the foundation of who you are is influenced by your birthday. The Earth’s position as it rotates around The Sun determines which constellations we can see at any given time. There are 12 constellations that correspond to the 12 signs. If The Sun was obscuring the view of the constellation Capricorn on the day you were born, for example, your sun sign is Capricorn (and you may be hard-working, ambitious and disciplined as a result).
What Does Your Sign Mean?
In addition to your sun sign, there are many other things you’ll want to learn to better understand the zodiac. Each sign represents an astrological element (Fire, Earth, Air or Water) and corresponds with a specific planet and modality (Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable). Together, these components make up the bigger picture of your personality and determine your general approach to life, your willingness to adapt and the passions that make you tick. Astrology can be used alongside Tarot (and our tarot card bundles) to help you better understand yourself and leverage your best personality traits so you can live your best life.
Find Your Sign
So, which sign are you? Your birthday will fall into one of the birth ranges listed below to help you determine your zodiac sign. Note that the date ranges can vary slightly based on when The Sun enters its next sign. If you’re birthday is on the edge of the range, it’s best to consult an astrologer or the birthdate book to be sure!
