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.

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 in general. 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.

- 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.

- 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.
February Zodiac Signs
Date: 20th January – 18th February
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.

April Zodiac Signs
Date: 21st March – 19th April
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.

June Zodiac Signs
Date: 21st May – 20th June
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.
August Zodiac Signs
Date: 23rd July – 22nd August
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.
October Zodiac Signs
Date: 23rd September – 22nd October
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
December Zodiac Signs
Date: 22nd November – 21st December
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
