What Your Zodiac Sign Reveals

You Zodiac sign, or star sign, is where the sun was at the time of your birth. The complete horoscope consists of much more, but this website focuses on what your Zodiac sign reveals about you, regarding your character traits, your relationsships, your annual forecast, and so on.

The Horoscope

The age old system of astrology is very complex. Its major instrument, the horoscope, consists of much more than the Zodiac sign of the sun. The whole Zodiac is considered. So are all the planets of our solar system, their positions in the Zodiac and the angles between. In addition, there are the twelve astrological Houses.

       But the Zodiac sign position of the sun is still a very important part of astrology, just as the sun has quite a prominent presence in the sky and for life on earth.

The Zodiac Sun Sign

In astrology, your Zodiac sun sign mainly describes your basic character traits, your fundamental personality - especially when you are at rest, not involved in one or other intense activity.

       When you get involved in specific activities, usually the other heavenly bodies of your horoscope are at work. But in between, the characteristics of your sun's Zodiac sign will be what you express. Of course, they are also detectable in your activities, but the traits of your sun sign are the most evident when you are at rest, uninvolved in pressing matters.

       Just as the sun is by far the greatest of the heavenly bodies in our solar system, its gravity keeping all the planets in their orbits, the sun is a major influence in the horocope. It makes sort of an always present background influence. So, the sun position in your horoscope demands a lot of attention.

       On this website, you find much more information about the sun and its role in Zodiac sign astrology. Click the MENU button on top to see the table of contents.

       Also, there are links to websites of mine dedicated to each of the twelve Zodiac signs, presenting their character traits, compatibility with other Zodiac signs, astrological forecasts for each year since 2012, and so on.

       I hope you find exploring this material rewarding.
