what is your sun sign

What is your sun sign? Determining your sun sign is one of the easier aspects of astrology, and most people are already aware of what their sun sign is, although they may not realize it. If someone asks you what your sign is, and you reply with "Gemini," that is your sun sign.

Your sun sign is the astrological sign associated with the position of the sun, at the time of your birth. 

Ever wonder why your sun sign gets so much attention? After all, astrology encompasses much more than your sun sign. It turns out that there is a good reason why the sun sign seems to steal the spotlight.

The sun is a star, not a planet, and our entire solar system moves around it. The sun's centrality in this galaxy is akin to where you stand, as the center of your own life. Your point of view is the vantage point from which you see the world, and it's through your own understanding of life that you thrive.

The energy of the sun provides vigor and intensity. Imagine our daily lives without the warmth of the sun; our experience of the world would likely be dark and cold, assuming we would even be able to maintain life without the sun.

The sun's position in your birth chart assists you just as the sun gives life on earth. Understanding your sun sign will give you a better understanding of yourself, as well as astrology and the zodiac in general.

Take heed of the advice or suggestions given regarding your sun sign. This astrological aspect will show you where you should give an extra effort in life and where you would most benefit from pushing yourself.

Your sun sign is determined by the time, day and location of your birth, and becomes more interesting when you take into account the astrological house in which your sign resides. 

Learning more about your sun sign is imperative for understanding even more about yourself than you ever thought possible. So, let’s take a look at what that means:

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is a sign of boldness and independence. As a fire sign, your personality is loud and friendly. You know exactly what you want, and once you’ve made your mind up, it is unchanging. You’re passionate about what you believe in, as well as how you experience the world.

Your boldness can sometimes come across as intensity and, in fact, you are quite intense at times. Try expressing your personality without overwhelming those around you.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 21)

Taurus is a sign of sensuality and rootedness. You enjoy the finer things in life, including moving music, exquisite art, and great food. Being an earth sign grounds you, but can lead to stubbornness as well.

Your confidence in knowing who you are and what you want is excellent, but moving forward, try not to be too rigid in your ideas — that is, try to be open to ideas that conflict with your own.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 20)

Geminis are an intellectual air sign, represented by the twins of the zodiac. Your personality is extremely fluid, which can be great, but it can also make it difficult for you to make decisions. Your intelligent, thoughtful nature will assist with the tough decision making.

Your personality is eccentric and doesn’t typically follow the social norms. Embrace every aspect of your personality, regardless of whether they flow cohesively together.

CANCER (June 20 - July 22)

Cancers are romantic, dreamy and deeply emotional. Being a water sign connects you to your emotions in myriad ways. You’re intuitive and likely artistic or, at the very least, appreciative of the arts.

Your emotional nature can cause a moodiness or sensitivity within you, and once someone has hurt you, it is not easy for them to get back in your good graces. Try to be a little more forgiving with people.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

As a fire sign, Leo's personality is larger than life, warm and optimistic. You love being the life of the party, or the center of attention. You’re a joy to be around, but you can be self-centered at times.

Try to remember to let others take the spotlight every once in a while. You’ll still be the life of the party by graciously allowing others to have a turn.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are an earth sign, grounded and hard-working. You’re likely to do more than anyone else around the office, as you just can’t seem to take a break from work. You still know how to have a good time; however, you can be a perfectionist at times.

Try to remember that, in life, there are happy mistakes. No one is perfect.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are attuned to the justice in the world, always seeking balance. You love to be surrounded by beauty in any situation. As an air sign, you’re intellectual and thoughtful; however, you have a difficult time making, and keeping, plans.

It’s wonderful to be so excited about many projects, just remember that other people don’t move on from ideas as quickly as your fast wit allows you to. To them, skipped plans or an abandoned project can feel like a slight.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are the most mysterious of the signs; however, as a water sign, they tend to be deeply emotional, even if they don’t always show it. You seem to revel in your mysterious nature, as well as a fascination with the unsolved mysteries of life. You always look for the hidden meaning in everything.

Your sign is also the sign most associated with sexual prowess. You can be slightly cold to those around you, so try warming up a bit when you’re expecting company.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius are optimistic, bubbly and easily thrown off course. Your element of fire creates a passion within you, but one that is easily tampered down. You have many goals and projects, but sometimes get overwhelmed with the possibilities of life.

You’re a positive presence to be around, but try drawing that positivity inward and using it to achieve the goals you truly desire. Don’t give up on yourself so easily.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are a traditional, and old-fashioned at times, earth sign. Your focus is generally on hard work and taking care of your family (given or chosen). You do like to have fun but in a constructive manner.

Try letting loose every once in a while, allowing yourself to give in to your most whimsical, spontaneous nature. Relaxing will only give you more energy for the projects to come, so there’s no need for guilt. Just get out there and have a good time!

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is an eclectic air sign that is intelligent and inventive. Your innovational skills are among the best in the zodiac sign, and you seem to have a natural ability to fix things, particularly electronics. Your personality is unique and your social skills are above average.

You can come across as slightly aloof from time to time, so nonchalant is your nature. Try to make sure the people that you care about are aware of your feelings.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is a water sign, represented by the dual fish. Your personality is fluid and ever-evolving, and you are deeply involved in your rich, inner-life. You tend to daydream more than most, with your romantic, idealizing nature.

Try to remember that nothing, and no one, is as perfect as the romance genre would have us believe. Love can be messy, and even painful, and that’s every bit as wonderful as the perfect scenarios you dream of.
