Astrology is the study of the influence that celestial bodies (usually stars and planets), have on human lives. The position of the sun, moon, stars and planets at the time of people’s birth shapes their personality, affects their behavior, romantic relationships and predicts the future.
However, what most people known about astrology is their zodiac sign, which refers to one of the 12 constellations of the zodiac. This is a form of sun sign astrology, but it’s simplistic, so it produces very limited results. In order to get a more accurate reading, many astrologers will check to see what sign each planet was in at the time of birth. The signs and planets combine with other elements like houses and angles, to form a complex and very specific profile of one’s personality, life and future prospects.
There isn’t any unified theory or practice of astrology. Even the ancient cultures all practiced their own forms, some of which evolved into today’s western astrology. Western astrology is based upon the construction of a horoscope, which is a chart of the heavens at a particular moment. The most common form of horoscope is the natal chart based on the moment of a person’ birth.
The astrological planets are the seven heavenly bodies known to the ancients, including the sun and the moon. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Sun and Moon are the seven planets that rule the twelve astrological signs.
In modern Western astrology the signs of the zodiac represent twelve basic personality types and they are divided into four elements: fire, earth, air and water. Water and earth signs are considered feminine, while fire and air signs are considered masculine. The 12 zodiac signs are also divided into three qualities: cardinal, fixed and mutable.
The zodiac sign of an individual depends on the placement of planets and the ascendant in that sign. Continue reading to find out more about the four elements and the zodiac signs associated with each element!
