What is My Zodiac Sign?

For some people, they are familiar with horoscopes, the zodiac sign and what zodiac sign they are but for others, this all sounds like a whole load of mumbo jumbo. So if you’re wondering what your zodiac sign is, or indeed what even is a zodiac sign you’re in the right place.  

Let’s begin by  briefly answering the question ‘what is my zodiac sign?’

Your zodiac sign is based in astrology. It concerns the position of the sun at the time of your birth. The position of the planets at the time and place of your birth create a unique blueprint of you. Which you could consider to be a map of your destiny. 

When you study the position of these planets, you learn a lot about yourself. You uncover your hidden talents, challenges and quirks, reasons why you do or experience things you do. Astrology is so incredible, it can predict the course of your life, and the sun (your zodiac sign) is a part of that. 

How To Find Your Zodiac Sign

In western society we concentrate a lot on the sun sign (the position of the sun at the time of birth) this is what is generally known as your ‘zodiac’ sign. 

The sun takes the same course throughout the year, it’s in the same position on the same date every year.  For example it’s in the same position on 17th January 2020 as it was on 17th January 2019.  

Most other planets require a chart and mathematical calculations to discover what position they were during your birth, but your zodiac sign is easy to find. 

To find your zodiac sign, all you need to do is find your birthday in the list below and note it’s associated zodiac sign. That sign is YOUR zodiac sign.  

  • March 21to April 10 = Aries
  • April 20 to May 20 = Taurus
  • May 21 to June 20 = Gemini
  • June 21 to July 22 = Cancer
  • July 23 to August 22 = Leo
  • August 23 – September 22 = Virgo
  • September 23 – October 22 = Libra
  • October 23 – November 21 = Scorpio
  • November 22 – December 21 = Sagittarius
  • December 22 – January 19 = Capricorn
  • January 20 – February 18 – Aquarius
  • February 19 – March 20 – Pisces

How Horoscopes or Zodiac Readings Work With Your Zodiac Sign

You may have noticed that you can read your zodiac every day, or month. These zodiac readings are like a weather forecast. They compare how the position of the planets for a specific period (such as a day, week or month) will influence your sun sign. You’ll see examples of this in action by looking at our zodiac readings which are linked above. 

These readings are general, but you can refer to an astrologist through sites like Psychic Source, who will give you a full personalised astrology report unique to you. If you haven’t tried this out yet we highly recommend it – you’ll be shocked at the accuracy!  

What Does My Zodiac Sign Mean?

Your zodiac sign usually reflects your personality and how you experience life according to this Free Tarot Explained guide. They show how you express yourself, what is important to you, and how you approach life. For example:

  • Aries, like to be first, can be quite direct and often move very quickly.  
  • Taurus, love luxury and sensuality, they are funny, down to earth and sometimes lazy.
  • Gemini is quick-witted, freedom-loving and often has two sides to their personality. 
  • Cancer is nurturing, a homebody and sensitive, but they’ll pinch you if you push them!
  • Leos are just like a lion. They are loyal, proud, loving, protective and love attention. 
  • Virgos are perfectionists, they are also kind, and down to earth but can seem judgemental sometimes because of their perfectionism. 
  • Libras are light-hearted and loving; they strive for balance and find it hard to take a side. 
  • Scorpio is deep, dark and delicious. They are also highly emotional and incredibly secretive.
  • Sagittarius are bold, direct, lively, and loyal.
  • Capricorn is steadfast, a workaholic, humourous and diligent.
  • Aquarius is friendly, sociable, eclectic and are often visionaries
  • Pisces are the dreamers; they are nurturing kind and often look at life with rose-tinted glasses!

The Basic Traits Of Each Zodiac Sign

It’s common to list the zodiac in order of the procession that they take through the skies, over a period of 12 months and wow what a procession it is.  Did you know that the zodiac signs and astrology form the basis of almost every story and myth that we know, including those mentioned in numerous religious texts?  

When you start to really look into astrology you start to realize just how incredible our world really is.  Especially when you realize that the map to everything that ever existed and to what will ever exist is literally written in the stars.  

Note; For those interested, the study of Astrotheology really enhances your understanding of who we are and where we came from, and it also helps to improve our knowledge of the zodiac signs.  

We recognize that not everybody is going to be in awe of the magic of astrology enough to explore the skies in the detail as we are, so we’ve made things easier for you with some information about how zodiac signs can influence us along with typical traits and compatible signs for each zodiac sign.  

Which you can find below.  

Now, the horoscope starts from May 21 (the equinox, it’s the day that the sun crosses the equator and starts to rise to its full glory) and that phase starts with Aries.  

However, the start date of the zodiac can be confusing, so we’ve started our descriptions from January so that you can easily refer back and find the information you need quickly and efficiently.  

January Zodiac Signs


Date:  22nd December – 19th January

Element: Earth

Quality: Cardinal

Symbol: The Goat

Capricorns are tasked with overseeing the birth of the new sun and bringing it forward so that it can rise, and find it’s own momentum after it reaches the equator.  A Capricorns work is challenging and often unappreciated, and this reflects in everyday life. They are the unseen, or unspoken hero’s who are always climbing and improving for the greater good of their selves and humanity (the latter is also often overlooked).  

Capricorns can seem to be stuffy, uncomfortable in their skin, and sometimes rigid, but when they get to know you, they soon warm up and show off their warm, funny, smart and inspiring nature – fairness is crucial to them, which is why with all of these qualities combined they make great leaders.  

But be warned – they don’t suffer fools gladly, they are incredibly realistic, bossy at times and stand for truth, no matter the cost (usually to themselves).  It’s also important to remember that your Capricorn while seemingly resilient and durable (which they are) are also highly sensitive and gentle – you just don’t get to see.  

Compatibility:  Taurus and Capricorn are perfection – if you want to see just how they complement each other then get a reading at Psychic Source.

February Zodiac Signs


Date: 20th January – 18th February

Element: Air

Quality: Fixed

Symbol: Water

So there has been lots of activity going on, and a new sun is soon to be ‘born’ which is why Aquarius now steps up to cleanse and purify everything with water.  

Aquarius like to purify; they will seek out the truth about anything and everything.  They are the mental explorers and often live in their head if they are not careful.

You’ll often find an Aquarius learning something new, whether it be academic, through travel, observation, spiritual exploration or life in general, they’ll be observing and learning, purifying the lessons and bringing everything right to the point of truth and virtual reality (meant in it’s original sense – not the computer version!).  

Compatibility: Aquarius and Gemini make the perfect love match.

March Zodiac Signs


Date: 19th February – 20th March

Element: Water

Quality: Mutable

Symbol: 2 Fish

Pisces marks the start of the fishing season (at least traditionally).  They are the nurturers, nurturing the sun and bringing it safely to its birth.  Pisces ties up all the loose ends and focuses on everything it has on safely delivering its charge.  

In life, the charge of a Piscean can be anything or anyone they care about, family, friends, pets, plants, the home and their surroundings.  

Pisceans are the epitome of magical thinking and can often float up above the earth emotionally spending much of their time imagining a beautiful future or existence.  And to save the upset of those around them, they will also mould their personality to suit who they are with to make the people they are with happier – which can be quite confusing to earth signs in particular who are too realistic for all that.  

Pisceans just want everything and everyone to be happy, and they’ll do their best to ensure that while they are around that they are.  

Compatibility: Pisces and Scorpio are a dream couple.

April Zodiac Signs


Date: 21st March – 19th April

Element: Fire

Quality: Cardinal

Symbol: The Ram

Aries is the first sign in the zodiac, his energy is strong and powerful, and that’s because it’s his job to welcome the sun as it passes the equator and pushes it forward so that it can reach its highest potential, which is precisely how an Aries likes to approach life.  

They like to to be first, usually have lots of energy when it comes to achieving what they need and can sometimes be pushy and overwhelming to the more sensitive signs.  

Bear with them though, even though they might be a challenge they don’t mean to upset anyone, they are just very focused on their mission.

Aries is excellent at getting things started whether that be a project, a movement or a party!  

Compatibility:  Aries & Aquarius are a dream couple.

May Zodiac Signs


Date: 20th April – 20th May

Element: Earth

Quality: Fixed

Symbol: The Bull

When Taurus is at the top of the zodiac, expect to see farmers ploughing their fields, you can use the zodiac to determine the agricultural calendar!  But of course, a Taurus would only be happy with the most comfortable luxurious and frankly beautiful plough they could find. They like their creature comforts to be comfortable and pleasing to the eye.  

Taurus is notorious for being stubborn there’s a certain way to encourage them to do what you want or need them to do, and that is by inspiring, encouraging, complimenting and treating them.  Never tell them what to do. Never! That’s the red flag.

Taurus are generally pleasant people to be around, they are fun socially, practical too and they also have quite a good hearty sense of humour.  

Expect luxury and comfort if you have a Taurus around you and don’t expect them to be the most dynamic of signs.  They also like to lie in comfort on their fantastic sofa – a lot!

Compatibility: Taurus and Cancer make a perfect match.

June Zodiac Signs


Date: 21st May – 20th June

Element: Air

Quality: Mutable

Symbol: The Twins

Gemini’s might be one person, but energetically they are two.  The energy of a Gemini ties up loose ends ready to move to the next phase of the zodiac which is where the sun reaches its peak.  

This means that they can be serious and sunny at the same time, Gemini’s think quickly and need a lot of entertainment or stimulation otherwise they become bored.  But if they are in the right company and have lots of inspiration, you can expect to experience lots of fun and airy laughter if you have a Gemini in your life.

Compatibility: Gemini and Aquarius are couple and friend goals!

If you are Gemini learn more about what’s in store for you personally, astrologically and make the most of the experience by hooking up to an Aquarius reader. You are sure to enjoy Amanda’s reading style.  

July Zodiac Signs


Date: 21st June – 22nd July

Element: Water

Quality: Cardinal

Symbol: The Crab

Cancerians are lovers, not fighters; there is always going to be a fun, loving and nurturing vibe around wherever there is Cancerian around.

Cancerians love being at home, and around the people they love, but they can unwittingly challenge people emotionally because that’s their job, to push people through their emotional challenges so that you can move onto new experiences emotionally.  


Compatibility: Cancer and Pisces are just perfect together.  


Debra is the perfect Piscean horoscope reader who we know will delight you if you are Cancerian check her out to find out more about what’s going on for you personally.

August Zodiac Signs


Date: 23rd July – 22nd August

Element: Fire

Quality: Fixed

Symbol: The Lion

Ahh!  Loveable Leo, you can tell a Leo (especially a male Leo) by the way they strut about – literally, with their head up high, basking in the sun, and demonstrating their full glory.  That’s as long as they are not in the midst of any drama if that’s the case expect clouds, lots of clouds that shadow the Leo’s usually sunny disposition!

Leo’s are the kings of the zodiac, and they know it!  They get to bask in some of the most glorious days of the year.  When the sun is highest, and everybody is at the height of summer happiness.  Food is ripe and ready, and all good things that sustain life (including modern-day things too) are lined up and ready to drop.

These are glorious days, and there are always fun times to be had when a Leo is around they are the type of person that everybody gravitates toward and are likely to be very charismatic.  

But don’t forget, as already mentioned, Leo’s love a bit of drama!  Actually a lot of drama! Life wouldn’t be fun for a Leo if they didn’t get all het up frequently.  This can make them challenging to live with sometimes, but their glorious side more than makes up for it.  

Compatibility:  Leo & Sagittarius are perfection together.  

If you are a Leo and you want to know more about your life specifically, you’ll enjoy a horoscope reading from a Sagittarius reader, and we recommend Asmah.

September Zodiac Signs


Date: 23rd August – 22nd September

Element: Earth

Quality: Mutable

Symbol: The Virgin

Virgos are the perfectionists of the zodiac.  They will notice when things are not right, all of the time and can sometimes seem to be a little critical (or a lot critical) to those around them.  

They don’t mean to come across as they do though, they are just crossing the T’s ready for Libras judgement!

To help you live better with a Virgo, remind yourself of their exceptional qualities like their sense of humour, down to earth nature, warm heart, generous nature and their excellent attention to detail! And learn to practice self-acceptance and compassion toward your Virgo for they are so much harder on themselves than they are on anybody close to them.  

Compatibility: Taurus is the perfect match for Virgo

If you are a Virgo, check out this Taurean Horoscope Reader to find out more about how Virgo influences you directly.

October Zodiac Signs


Date: 23rd September – 22nd October

Element: Air

Quality: Cardinal

Symbol: The Scales

Libra’s are known for their love of all things even and balanced.  But they also highlight everything that is out of balance and needs to be addressed which they then address!  

They are like the quality assessors checking the quality of everything around them and then fixing the problems so that the Scorpio (who follows Libra) can maintain the equilibrium that Libra has brought to a situation.  

Sometimes this might be frustrating when there is a lot that needs to be addressed – a Libra won’t settle until things are perfectly balanced and if you ever feel like you are being analysed or judged by a Libra, don’t worry, it’s not personal – it’s just their thing.  

The environment that a Libra lives in will usually be harmonious and comforting too, and their clothes typically look perfect!  

Compatibility:  Librans love being around Gemini’s

A Gemini horoscope reader will provide a Liberian with the most perfect reading for them.  Find out more by hooking up with our favourite Librian, Vito

November Zodiac Signs


Date: 23rd October – 21st November

Element: Water

Quality: Fixed

Symbol: The Scorpion

In the story of the Zodiac, the Scorpion begins the slaying of the sun with its fierce tail just as the sun passes through.  I know it sounds harsh, but it represents the changing seasons and the beginning of the end of the sun’s journey.

This is why Scorpios are known for having a bite that is often hidden.  They do indeed. If you cross a Scorpio, expect to feel the pain of revenge just when you are not expecting it.  

Scorpio teaches us to think before we act, and to act honourably, kindly and with compassion. Scorpio intends to create peace and quiet so that it might continue on with its deep connection with the earth.    

You won’t see too much drama with a Scorpio (unless you really annoy them) they’ll just make you see the error of your ways somehow.  

Scorpio’s intensity of emotion and depth of feeling is incredible and one of their greatest gifts.  

Compatibility: Scorpio and Cancer feed off each other flawlessly.  

Check out what’s going on for you personally with a Horoscope reading destined to please you because it’s from our favorite Cancerian reader Claudia.  

December Zodiac Signs


Date: 22nd November – 21st December

Element: Fire

Quality: Mutable

Symbol: The Archer

The sun might be reeling from the damage that Scorpio has caused, but its Sagittarius who finally kills the sun with his bow and arrow.  Now the sun lies still for three days before it is reborn and starts on its journey again.

Sagittarius is supposed to finish things, and his job has been well executed which means that he now celebrates, and a celebration with a Sagittarius is one fabulous celebration indeed.  They know how to party.

They are mostly known as well for acquiring lots of fame and fortune throughout life, so Sagittarius can be expected to have a job that can provide their lifestyle anywhere from a famous personality or trading Bitcoin with robots such as the Bitcoin Revolution.

Sagittarius like to explore, and enjoy all new experiences, which can mean with partners too, they are famous for their curious ways and infidelity.  Of course, they won’t all be that way, but you’ll need to keep your Sagittarius busy and inspired just to make sure!

Compatibility: Sagittarius and Aries are one hot match.

If you are a Sagittarius and want to find out more about your life personally check out an Aries horoscope reading from Bridgette for the perfect powerful reading for you.  

Is your date of birth on a cusp?

If you were born on the first or last day of a Sun sign, in astrological terms you were born on a cusp. If that’s the case, you will probably benefit from reading your own Sun sign and the Sun sign that ends or begins right before or after your date of birth. For example, if your birth date is 22 December, your Sun sign is Capricorn, but you probably have some Sagittarian traits as well.

The Elements of the Zodiac Signs

One method of getting a broad feel for an individual’s psychological make up is to look at the composition of the chart in relation to the four elements: fire, water, earth and air. Each zodiac sign has an element assigned to it.

Earth Signs

With it’s natural connection to the material world, the earth sign is governed by the values of practicality and austerity. People born under this sign are very cautious individuals, especially in business and financial matters. They are primarily concerned with the “real” and, as such, are very down-to-earth individuals. The star sign governed by the earth element are Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo.

Air Signs

Communication is the forte of people born under the air sign. Brilliant and witty, they can be stars in their own right, with the natural ability to socialize and stand out from the crowd. Their intelligence gives them an unnatural capability to conceptualize, and their sense of freedom makes them spontaneous and unpredictable on the one hand, and very mysterious and eccentric on the other. The star signs governed by the air element are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.

Fire Signs

People born under the fire sign are very driven individuals that possess the need to express themselves. Faith and enthusiasm are the driving forces behind these individuals. As with fire, they can go from a small flicker to a raging flame, making them very temperamental. If they are managed properly, however, they can be very passionate in whatever endeavor they decide to engage. The star signs governed by the fire element are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.

Water Signs

The element of sensitivity, people born under the water sign are known to be in touch with their emotions and those of others. As such, they can possess a higher sense of empathy, making them ideal social creatures. They can be very emotional and complex. They are easily hurt when their sacrifices are not acknowledged by other. The star signs governed by the water element are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

The Qualities of the Zodiac

The signs are also categorized into qualities (sometimes called Quadruplicities, because they are divided into groups of four). The qualities describe person’s attitude in life. Generally speaking the quadruplicities represent the three basic qualities of life: cardinal (creation); fixed (preservation); and mutable (adjustment).


Those heavily influenced by the cardinal signs tend to be full of initiative, have no problems in beginning new projects and are usually quite busy with new plans. Within a group setting, the cardinal signs are most likely to lead others through their enthusiasm for the group’s aim. A cardinal quality is attached to the signs Aries, Cancer, Capricorn and Libra.


Those heavily influenced by the fixed quality are great at using their energy to keep long term projects running smoothly and for situations that require patience. These people also find change difficult, even when they consciously know they need it! A fixed quality is attached to the signs Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio and Taurus


Mutable people are normally flexible, adaptable and great at changing to suit their circumstances at various points in life. Their resourcefulness and versatility are a couple of mutable signs’ skills, although if taken too far can swing towards being scattered and disoriented. A mutable quality is attached to the signs Gemini, Pisces Sagittarius and Virgo.

The Rulers of the Zodiac

Western astrology is founded on the movements and relative positions of the planets, sun, and moon in the zodiac at the time of birth and their movements or transits through the sky in the past, present and future are considered to be the major influences on the zodiac signs.

In astrology, the study of the signs of the zodiac is guided by what is referred to as their ruling planets. Through time, astrologers have observed the qualities and energies of both the planets and the astrology signs. This helped them to match up each sign with their ruling planet.

My whole life has been a lie!?!?!? Makes more sense to me though, I always thought that I was a Leo because I was born on the 23rd of August, turns out, I’m a Virgo because Virgo starts on the 23rd of August. Lucky me. Although, Virgo definitely describes me way more than a Leo ever could. Everything this site states about a Virgo is completely TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
