Find your Sun sign
The Celestial sphere where the Sun and all the planets of our solar system thrive has been divided into 12 divisions of longitude by the early astronomers. These 12 divisions are called as the 12 zodiac signs in modern times.This system of astrology got its root from the ancient Greeks and Romans and spread across the globe with time.
Nowadays the zodiac are found to be more relevant with astrology and the horoscopes we read in daily papers and over the internet. The 12 zodiac signs form the basis of astrological studies and follow the path of the Sun in its elliptic orbit. However, of late a hue and cry has been raised over the recent inclusion of the sign of Ophiuchus into the zodiac cycle. The zodiac sign where the Sun is posited when you were born is known as your Sun sign and each sun sign has its own characteristics and traits that makes the natives quite different from one another. Of course, their natal chart positions of the other planets do have a greater say.
The Sun’s position in the sky at the moment of your birth greatly influences your personality. The Sun sign is all about you, it carries your personality traits. It defines you and how you perceive the world around you. The Sun sign represents the stereotypes we have established about each people born in a particular period of time.
Though the Sun sign seems to express you as a personality in whole, it cannot express your uniqueness. How your express your love, your relationship with others, your career prospects, your finances, etc can be derived by studying your natal chart in detail. But for twins, no people can share the same planetary positions and their alignments. Hence though there are millions of Aries people out there, if you are an Aries, you still stand out from the crowd. Here the Sun sign seems to be a collective characterization alone.
The Horoscopes or the Sun sign forecasts that you regularly read should always be taken with a pinch of salt. Be aware that it is not everything, and there is so much out there with regard to your personality and your fortune for the days ahead then meets the eye. The Sun sign analysis can be taken as a potential analysis of yours and can be best used with your inherent talents and intentions.
