Your Sun Sign
This star is the most powerful force in your birth chart. It represents your creativity, your individuality and your character traits. It also represents the forces that drive you. Think of your sun sign as your ego, your essence and how you understand yourself. It is what is innate within you, and also your potential for personal growth and evolution. Understanding both the strengths and weaknesses of your sun sign can help you make better choices in life, but remember that you are much more than just your sun sign. Your moon and rising sign are also influential, as are other planets.
On the cusp
The dates when one sun sign changes to another can vary between the 18th and the 23rd of each month. If your birthday falls between those dates, you were born on the cusp of two signs. If this is the case, the sun sign that your birth date falls into will be your official sun sign, but you should also familiarize yourself with the qualities of the other sign. For example, if you were born on 21 September you are technically a perfectionist Virgo but may sometimes feel more like a balanced Libra.
Be aware that the zodiac mirrors the journey from birth to old age. It begins with Aries, who often showcase the innocence of a newborn, and each sign after Aries grows until the zodiac completes with Pisces, often thought of as the ‘old soul’. This doesn’t mean that all Arians are immature and all Pisceans are wise, just that each sun sign can teach us something important about different ages and stages of our lives.
Born under the 13th sign?
According to recent NASA reports there may be 13 rather than 12 star signs. The 13th sign is called Ophiuchus and would be the sun sign for anyone born between November 29 and December 17. However, astronomy is not astrology. Astrologers have known about the Ophiuchus constellation for thousands of years but choose to leave Ophiuchus out of the equation and correspond the Zodiac with the 12 months of the year. Perhaps this is because Ophiuchus shares many of the characteristics typically associated with Sagittarius, such as being a light bearer, healer and dreamer.
THE ASTROLOGY FIX
THE SUN SIGNS
Most of us know our sun sign, but do you know which element your sun sign is associated with?
The twelve signs of the zodiac are governed by the four elements – fire, earth, air and water – and each element has distinct qualities that influence its associated signs.
ARIES, LEO and SAGITTARIUS are governed by the element of fire. Passion, spontaneity and motivation are key words here. Like the element of fire itself, fire signs provide warmth and enlightenment, but they also have the potential to burn out quickly or to cause great destruction if their sizzling enthusiasm is not well managed.
CANCER, SCORPIO and PISCES are governed by the element of water. Intuitive, intense and emotional, water signs are often mysterious and illuminating. They have the ability to adapt themselves to every situation with skill and grace, but their emotional intensity can turn to possessiveness and paranoia if not kept in balance.
TAURUS, VIRGO and CAPRICORN are guided by the element of earth. Tactile, grounded and practical, they are the most down-to-earth signs of the zodiac. They are reliable and highly productive, providing firm foundations on which to build towards success, but they also have a tendency to focus too much on the material or superficial and neglect what truly matters.
The element of air is the underlying force directing GEMINI, LIBRA and AQUARIUS. Communication, movement, adventure and inspiration are key words. Like a breath of fresh air, they can bring tremendous energy, insight and vision, but they can also be extremely unpredictable, depending on which direction the wind blows.
Virgo: The Virgin
23 August–22 September
Trustworthy and hardworking, with immaculate timing and presentation, your presence is often a healing one. You are organized, efficient, practical and showcase razor-sharp perception and insight. You are quietly creative and pay attention to detail. Your driving force is towards perfection.
Critical of self and others
I can focus on the power and magic of the now.
Virgos may be drawn to work that requires concentration and close attention to detail. Their quick, analytical mind, reliability and courteous manner make them essential-team players who are often the backbone of an organization.
Virgos take great pride in an organized, clean and tidy home. Everything will have its place, and there will be a minimum of clutter but an abundance of beautiful detail.
Virgos have a fastidious approach to life, and any unhealthy habits will be minimized. They have an incredible work ethic and any downtime will be scheduled and productive rather than restful.
VIRGO IN SHADE
With their passion for perfection, Virgos can be extremely hard on both themselves and others. They can set impossible standards and be super-critical and fussy. Their painstaking attention to detail also means they often lose sight of the bigger picture and the joy of what they are involved with.
