Astrology has existed since time immemorial, created by observing the movements of the stars in the sky and their correlation with events on earth. It is a discipline that requires a solid understanding of its symbols in order to accurately interpret any phenomena observed.
In Western astrology, we take into account every planet in the solar system. The sun symbolizes a person's "sign", their temperament.The fast-moving planets - the moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars - are said to be "personal" and give us information on a person's character, intellect, feelings, and energy. From Jupiter to Pluto, these planets are slow moving, and their influence is more noticeable, lasts longer, and can even affect an entire generation.
Astrologers classify the signs in different ways:
Vibration modes: cardinal signs are at the start of the season (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn), fixed signs in the middle (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), and the mutable signs at the end of the season (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces).
Elements: fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), and water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces).
Each sign is also broken up into 3 "decans" of 10 degrees, which brings further nuance and accuracy to one's birth chart and predictions.
