Here’s a deeper look into the real meaning of your sun sign.
Astrology is so much more than just your daily horoscope. In fact, astrology can be traced back to 200 BC and has been used to predict, plan and understand the world that we live in.
Many years ago, the ancients would look to the sky as a type of map. In many ways, it was their only way to understand the Universe and through observing the night sky, there were able to notice trends and patterns.
When the Sun was in a certain constellation, they noticed a shift in energy. When the Moon was Full they noticed different energy. This helped to create the ideas and philosophies behind Astrology.
Even though we don’t necessarily need to rely on the night sky as a map anymore, Astrology can provide us with a much deeper insight into our soul and the world around us.
Essentially, we are the Universe and by understanding the stars, we can also understand ourselves.
Most people are familiar with their Sun Sign or Star Sign, which refers to the 12 constellations of the Zodiac. These include:
- Aries (March 21-April 19)
- Taurus (April 20-May 20)
- Gemini (May 21- June 20)
- Cancer (June 21- July 22)
- Leo (July 23-August 22)
- Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
- Libra (September 23 – October 22)
- Scorpio (October 23- November 21)
- Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)
- Capricorn (December 22- January 20)
- Aquarius (January 21- February 18)
- Pisces (February 19-March 20)
While the Sun Sign is important, it is only a fraction of the picture when it comes to Astrology. Many people use the Sun Sign as a starting point however, as it symbolizes the core energy of who we are and the potential of what we can achieve.
There are many generic interpretations of what each Sun Sign means. In fact, we have all probably 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 this energy is so much deeper than just a few stereotypical keywords.
Even though it is not possible to get a full understanding of a person just from their Sun Sign, there is a deeper way to look at each Sun sign and what it might mean.
