What exactly is a Sun Sign Horoscope?

Each of us, at the time of birth is born with a sun sign, otherwise known as a sign of the Zodiac. Running the gamut from Aries to Pisces, the 12 signs lend a multitude of traits, quirks and significance to our characters. A person’s sun sign represents the Zodiac sign that the sun was in at the time of their birth. 

What does the sun represent?

In planetary terms, everything revolves around the sun. Likewise, sun sign of a person forms the basis of their individual self. A person’s sun sign represents their autonomous sense of power and the very core of their being. The sun sign also reveals much about a person’s potential and possible direction in life. The sun fundamentally rules our basic personalities, ego, will and character, although it is further shaped and uniquely coloured by the placements of the moon, ascendant, Venus and Mars. 

What are the 12 sun signs?

In total there are 12 sun signs. In order these are:

Aries
Taurus
Gemini
Cancer
Leo
Virgo
Libra
Scorpio
Sagittarius
Capricorn
Aquarius
Pisces

Each sign comes with its own element; there are three air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), three fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), three earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) and three water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces). Furthermore, a sun sign can be classed as cardinal (renowned for leadership qualities), mutable (adaptable and a keen mediator and communicator) or fixed (stubborn and set in its ways). 

Why are personal sun sign horoscopes so uncanny? 
Astrologers believe that the planets exert a pull and influence over our behaviours. As we are all born on different days, in different years and at different times, each of us receives a unique, utterly bespoke influence from the stars. The sun sign horoscope takes into account the pull of our sun sign planet. Each sign of the Zodiac is ruled by a planet; for instance Gemini’s ruler is Mercury whilst noble Leo is ruled by the Sun. 
There are various other personal horoscopes available, including those that take into account a person’s moon and ascendant (you can find out this information by knowing your exact date, time and place of birth) or transit horoscopes which can help predict what’s coming by scoping the movement of the planets and the impact this will have upon individuals. 

How can a personal horoscope help?
Many people are consistently drawn to astrology to better understand themselves. Astrology resonates with the majority of people and helps outline our character, strengths and areas of weakness as well as our untapped potential. It’s important to note that a person’s Zodiac sign does not dominate the entirety of who they are. Naturally genetics, lifestyle, upbringing and free will all impact how a person’s life unravels. Astrology is more like a guidance system that helps a person understand more of who they are.

In this way, a personal horoscope can be used to add meaning and significance to just about every area of life including relationships, business, hobbies and child rearing.
