Sun Signs
Where Do you Shine?

By Dikki-Jo Mullen, Astrologer

“What exactly are zodiac signs?” wondered a friend recently.
The familiar astrology or birth sign that nearly everyone the world over knows is really called The Sun Sign. It’s the Earth’s place in its annual journey circling around the Sun on the day of birth. When your birthday occurs the event is celebrated with candles, gifts and cake to bring good fortune to the new year to come. Astrologers call this the solar return and a special horoscope is prepared to analyze what the future holds.
The Sun shows where you shine. It‘s the sense of identity. It offers a quick and easy overview of the essence of a person, but in reality it is only the tip of the astrological iceberg of information. An individual horoscope calculated for the month, day, year, time and place of birth reveals much, much more detail. If, for example, you are a Taurus, yet feel different from a coworker or friend who is also a Taurus, that‘s because you probably have different Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and ascendant or rising signs.
Then there are the twelve houses of the zodiac which link to different areas of life. The aspects, the angles between the planets, show how the cosmic energies interact with each other in your life. Fixed stars, element balances, the asteroids and other factors add to the complexity of the whole picture.
Residence, travel, spirituality, compatibility, career planning and numerous other important factors can be analyzed in a complete birth chart reading. Below is an explanation of the basic traits of each Astrological Sun Sign, along with the lucky day. The days of the week are named for the Sun, Moon and visible planets. The celestial rulers of each birth sign determine the lucky days.
