The 12 signs of the zodiac
In traditional astrology, there are 12 signs determined by the time and date of birth (for the native born in the beginning or end of cycle, it is necessary to check the solar sign as the Sun does not always positioned exactly the same dates every year). These signs would have appeared in the fifth century BC with the sidereal zodiac. Each sign has a mode (cardinal, mutable or fixed), an element (Earth, Fire, Water or Air), a polarity (positive or negative) and is linked to a planet.
We use the sidereal zodiac, experienced since the 5th century BC. In traditional astrology, there are 12 signs determined by the date of birth. For people born at the beginning or end of a sign, it is necessary to check the exact position of the Sun, whose location varies slightly from one year to another for the same date. Each sign has 30 ° and is divided into 3 "decans." Again, if in doubt, it is best to check the exact position of your natal Sun, time, and place of birth.
Each sign of the zodiac has its own qualities. It can be cardinal, fixed, or mutable. This is the "mode" of operation, and it also depends on one of the 4 "elements": Fire, Earth, Air, or Water and a polarity (positive or negative, masculine or feminine). Finally, each sign is connected to a planet called "mistress," which indicates the main characteristics of its personality. All this information makes it possible to determine quite precisely the potential of a person: their qualities, faults, assets, and flaws.
The Ascendant is another essential element: it is the zodiac sign east of your place of birth. The Ascendant specifies the pace that we give ourselves and the motivations that make us move forward.

However, each human being is unique and can not be reduced only to their solar sign. It is the combination of the ten planets in signs, in houses, and the interactions that they maintain between them, which nuance and specify the personality of each one.
Knowing your star sign therefore means having a better understanding on your personality, your behavior, your aspiration and your way of life. This is a great way of learning to anticipate your own expressions, motivations and ambitions.
