Most people know what sign of the Zodiac they were born under. This is also known as a Star or Sun sign and these are: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. These signs are also actual star constellations in the sky and whatever sign the Sun is in when you are born is your Star or Sun sign. The Sun is not actually “in” that sign but appears to be from our viewpoint on Earth.These constellations appear to follow each other in a track across the sky which is called the Zodiac belt and they take a year to complete the circuit. The Sun takes approximately a month to “travel through” each of thetwelve signs.The Moon and planets also roughly follow this path hence the terms – Moon in Capricorn or Venus in Aquarius for example.
The Moon orbits the Earth in just over 28 days or about a month and spends only 2 – 3 days in each sign. The planets vary in their orbit times, Mercury the closest to the Sun orbits in only 88 days. Pluto, the farthest from the Sun completes its orbit in 248 years.

Equinox when the days and nights are equal in length and the Sun
(viewed from our perspective) is now moving into the Northern
hemisphere for our summer. The fourth sign, Cancer, marks the Summer
solstice (around June 21) when we have our maximum hours of daylight.
The beginning of Libra marks the Autumn Equinox and the beginning of
Autumn. Capricorn, the tenth sign,begins at the Winter Solstice which
is when the hours of darkness are at their greatest – midwinter.

As often happens, ideas on the subject fall into one camp or the other. But maybe most sense lies in the middle ground. If we were to adopt this position, then we"d have to accept that a "force" DOES have an effect upon our lives, but rather than being some omnipotent supernatural influence, it could be grounded in things we have a fair idea about. W...The Four Elements of Tarot
