Astrology Is Not Just About Your Zodiac Signs

Astrology Is Not Just About Your Zodiac Signs

A person with a zero interest in Astrology is still aware of his/her sun sign. There are many of us that don’t identify with the characteristics of our respective zodiacs. While some of us embody the spirit of our signs, many others feel that the signs don’t encapsulate their true nature well. If you fall in the category of the latter, you might feel that the likelihood of your life being affected by the signs is negligible. Don’t be that presumptuous, however, as there are a number of other factors influencing or dominating your vital nature. If you seek astrology with an open mind, you might not be that quick to jump the gun. Let’s find out the six ways in which Astrology could be running your life that you are probably not aware of -


The Sun completes its cycle around the twelve signs in a year, therefore it stays in each sign for around a month. The Moon, on the other hand, completes its movement around the planets in twenty eight days, and stays in each for fifty four hours. The moon controls the emotional aspects of a person’s behavior.


It is the ascendant sign in our zodiac that was on the horizon during the time of our birth. If you sign doesn’t seem to fit the description of your personality, that is probably because the ascendant is influencing your behavioral patterns. It dictates the way we perceive the world and how we maneuver our way around it. Since it is calculated by the time and location of a person’s birth, it chiefly represents the conditioning of our childhoods that we might be influenced by. Its reach is such that it even controls our physical mannerisms. It is seen as the mask we wear for the public – the first thing that is noticed by people.  Therefore, if someone is describing your attributes that you don’t yourself see, they are usually talking about your rising sign. It is as vital as our Sun and Moon Signs.


Our default chart is the natal chart but the way we mature and change is documented by the progressed chart. Think of it as a modification you make to your natal chart. The premise is that every year after your birth, the sun advances a day in the calendar, and eventually moves to the next sign. The chart that represents the second of your life is the day after your birth; the third year is emblematic of the third day; and so forth. The progressed signs reflect the changes to your Sun Sign while imparting perspectives and developing maturity as time progresses.


Neptune has earned a nefarious reputation for being the planet for deception and delusions. The sun reflects the self; and is indicative of the relationship one shares with their fathers. If Neptune is impacted negatively by the Sun, it will give rise to an ambiguous relationship with the self. The nature of Neptune is such that it obstructs the true nature of things from being revealed and illuminated, therefore it can mask reality. This is highly subjective though.


Stelliums (commonly known as Super-planet) are clusters of four or more planets that inhabit the same sign or house in the birth chart. For the ones who have them, it has a heightened effect on the sign it occupies. It is a popular belief that the conglomeration of planets imparts the signs with greater power than even the sun signs. A Stellium might point toward unprecedented greatness. To illustrate this point further, Mozart had a Stellium in Aquarius and Bruce Lee also had one in Scorpio.

It is highly possible that the chief signs of your character might match the description of your zodiac to the utmost. The skepticism in you might be a product of the refusal to acknowledge the sign because it is in conflict with the image you have of yourself. There also exists that distinct possibility that maybe you feel you are just too intelligent and sensible for mysticism. But dispensing with your doubt gives rise to the acceptance of the slightest margin of error that is universally accepted with Astrology, and you should be open to that. Conviction wihout self-reflexivity can fester and blind you to other possibilities.
