The 12 Signs of the Zodiac

How often have you asked some one - "What's your sun sign?"

After I read Linda Goodman when I was 12 i decided I was the expert on sun signs. In school it used to be a ruling passion to find compatible friends as per sun signs and hope to find ideal soul mates as per them as well.

In the west the scope of astrology is limited by the concept of Sun Signs. The year is divided into 12 sun signs and depending on the region of the sky the sun was in during your birth you get a specific sun sign.

Here are a few basic traits as given in Wikipedia

  • Aries (March 21 - April 20): Assertive, impulsive.
  • Taurus (April 21 - May 20): Resourceful, thorough, sometimes indulgent.
  • Gemini (May 21 - June 21): Logical, inquisitive, sometimes superficial.
  • Cancer (June 22 - July 22): Tenacious, sensitive, sometimes clinging.
  • Leo (July 23 - August 23): Generous, proud, sometimes arrogant.
  • Virgo (August 24 - September 23): Practical, efficient, sometimes over-critical.
  • Libra (September 24 - October 23): Co-operative, fair, sometimes lazy.
  • Scorpio (October 24 - November 22): Passionate, sensitive, sometimes obsessive.
  • Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21): Intelligent, straightforward, sometimes careless.
  • Capricorn (December 22 - January 20): Prudent, ambitious, sometimes suspicious.
  • Aquarius (January 21 - February 19): Humanitarian, unconventional, sometimes detached.
  • Pisces (February 20 - March 20): Imaginative, sensitive, sometimes impractical.

Naturally not all traits are found in each person. There are also cusps born with traits of both sun signs. So it is all a very basic view here.

Numerology - calculate your number

The Number of the day you are born on can affect the kind of person you are. In numerology the way to calculate the number that vibrates with your energy is very simple.

Here's how you calculate your number. Suppose you are born on 8th June 1978. the numbers you need to add are 8 from the date, 6 from the month June and all the digits in the year 1978.

i.e. 8+6+1+9+7+8 = 39

As this is not a single digit and numerology works with digits 1 to 9 we need to reduce it to a single digit.

Now add 3+9=12

Again add 1+2 = 3

So the number for a person born on 8th June 1978 is number 3. It is also called the life path number by numerologists. Calculate your own number and check out the general traits given below.

These associated traits tend to differ according to the system of numerology in use.The ones given here are based on the Chinese system. These are not fixed traits and other influences also affect the individual.

Number 1. Individual. Aggressor. Yang.
Number 2. Balance. Union. Receptive. Yin.
Number 3. Communication/interaction. Neutrality.
Number 4. Creation.
Number 5. Action. Restlessness.
Number 6. Reaction/flux. Responsibility.
Number 7. Thought/consciousness.
Number 8. Power/sacrifice.
Number 9. Highest level of change.
