Astrology first gained prominence after people started to study the stars, universe and meaning of life. People are still fascinated by the relationship between the planets and human behaviour. Though some people are sceptical about astrology, a considerable number of people are convinced that their astrological sign determines their personality. Astrology has a big role to play across a wide range of cultures, and the topic is arguably more relevant than ever.
Signs and categories
There are twelve astrological signs in total. These are divided into four categories, which are Fire, Water, Earth and Air. The twelve signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Those that believe in astrology are convinced that certain things are “written in the stars”, with many people checking their horoscopes every day.
Support for astrology
If you’re sceptical about the practice of astrology, you may start to think a little differently after reading the following facts about the practice. There is a big likelihood that the moon may well affect how you feel and behave. Studies have proved that the moon influences ocean waves. The human body is actually made up of up to 65% water, so there really is a good chance that it could also affect us.
Famous astrology fans
A number of US presidents have been strong believers in astrology, and these have included Franklin D. Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt, who frequently quoted astrologers. Ronald Reagan’s wife Nancy often made decisions based on astrology. In fact, the United Astrology Conference actually predicted the 2008 victory of Barack Obama.
The influence of star signs
Some astrologers believe that your star sign can even influence the way that you look. They say that Geminis tend to have small bones and refined features and that Scorpions are often muscular. Your star sign might even help determine your favourite colour. Librans tend to be big fans of the colour blue, with Taurans being passionate about pink and Sagittarians being very fond of purple.
Is your star sign correct?
Your star or zodiac sign is determined by your birth date based on where the sun is positioned when you are born. However, what you think your star sign actually is might be incorrect. If the Earth wobbles off its axis at the time of your birth, the position of the sun will have been changed. This could mean you were actually born under a different sign than you expect.
It’s also important not to overlook the importance of ruling planets in astrology. Each of the zodiac signs has a ruling planet and this determines things like the moods and behaviour of those under its influence. Ruling planets are regarded as so important that they can make those whose star signs would suggest they are incompatible in fact perfectly matched. You can see the list of star signs and their ruling planets below.
- Aries – Mars
- Taurus – Venus
- Gemini – Mercury
- Cancer – Moon
- Leo – Sun
- Virgo – Mercury
- Libra – Venus
- Scorpio – Pluto

Personality traits of signs
The fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) are said to be bold, passionate, upfront and highly opinionated. Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) can be incredibly altruistic and sensitive, whilst Air signs are regarded as expressive and extroverted. Earth signs are associated with logic, practicality and pragmatism. Astrology can help you find more about your romantic future, your career potential and much more. It can help you make highly-beneficial and appropriate decisions, let you know about your real strengths and weaknesses as well as any forthcoming hurdles that you might be met with.
Sun, moon and rising signs
If you are interested in astrology and wish to gain more detailed information about yourself and your future, it’s a good idea to check your moon and rising signs as well as the more well-known sun signs. Your sun sign gives you basic information about what is happening in your life and how you are likely to react, but your rising sign can also tell you when things will happen. Your moon sign provides you with valuable details about your emotional internal self.
