The 12 signs of the zodiac

  Written by Evie

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.

Astrology is not about arranging all individuals in 12 groups, astrology is the study to understand the link between human beings and the interaction of the planets in our solar system. If you do not know your star sign, please use our application "what is my star sign ?" in which you'll need to provide your date of birth.
