Free Astrology Course - The 12 Signs

The central concept in astrology is that there are 12 signs that influence the way that people think, live and act. The sun signs are the best known influences. The sun sign means the sign (or section of the sky) that the sun was physically in when the person was born. This is the primary influence on a person. The sun sign is also the easiest to figure out - simply know the day of birth and look below.

The location of the moon and other planets provide secondary influences on a person's career, health, and more. These positions need to be determined with charting software.
