Astrology is so much more than just your everyday horoscope. In fact, astrology can date back to 200 BC. It has been used to predict, plan and understand the world in which we live.
Many years ago the ancients viewed the sky as a kind of map. In many ways it was their only way to understand the universe and by observing the night sky they could see trends and patterns.
When the sun was in a certain constellation, they noticed a shift in energy. When the moon was full they noticed a different energy. That helped them develop the ideas and philosophies behind astrology.
Even if we no longer necessarily have to rely on the night sky as a map, astrology can give us a much deeper insight into our soul and the world around us.
Basically we are the universe and by understanding the stars we can understand ourselves too.
Most people are familiar with their sun or zodiac sign, which refers to the 12 zodiac signs of the zodiac. This includes:
- Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
- Taurus (April 20-May 20)
- Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
- Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
- Leo (July 23-August 22)
- Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
- Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
- Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
- Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
- Capricorn (December 22nd – January 20th)
- AQUARIUS (January 21st – February 18th)
- Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
While the sun sign is important, it is only a fraction of the picture when it comes to astrology. However, many people use the sun sign as a starting point as it symbolizes the nuclear energy of who we are and the potential of what we can achieve.
There are many generic interpretations of what each sun sign says. In fact, we’ve probably all heard the stereotypes – Aries is fiery, Taurus is stubborn, and so on, but what about on a deeper level?
When the sun is in a certain constellation, it gives off a certain energy, and that energy is so much deeper than just a few stereotypical keywords.
While it is not possible to get a full understanding of a person through just their sun sign, there is a deeper way to look at each sun sign and what it might be saying.
Let’s take a deeper look at each sun sign.
