Astrology Tips

Astrology is a form of divination based on the theory that the movements of the celestial Astrology Tipsbodies—the stars, the planets, the sun, and the moon—influence human affairs and determine the course of events.

Astrology and Astronomy are both thousands of years old. One of the earliest cycles that man paid attention to were the cycles of day and night, of the moon and sun wheeling around in the sky. Men navigated by the stars and gave names to the constellations. They gave meaning to each part of the cycle and to each part of the sky.

Astrologers divided each year up into twelve parts, and named each section after the constellation which was primary during that section of time. The Sun Sign for a person describes which quadrant the sun is found in during the person's birth. Each constellation, or sign, has a set of personality characteristics associated with it. Here is the chart of sun signs and dates.

In addition to the main sun sign, each person also has a moon sign and other planetary signs. These all indicate where the heavenly bodies were situated at the person's birth. These all influence the person's personalities in different ways.
