In Western astrology each individual is born under one of 12 star signs.
Your star sign is determined by the position of the planets at the time of birth.The forces between the planets involved in astrology can be simplified into one word: gravity. The Sun has the greatest gravity and the strongest effect in astrology, followed by the Moon.The Sun controls the earth’s motion and the Moon controls its tides, but the other planets have their own effects on the Earth - and on the people who live there.
Many of the Signs got their names from various Greek and Roman egends, but some predate even those cultures. Explore the mythology of your Sign by clicking on the links below.
