If you want to know what the other 11 signs of yours,add your place of birth and time of birth.
Now,the sun sign –
Originally referred to as your star sign, your Sun sign represents the sign of the Zodiac that the Sun was in at the time of your birth. The Sun rules willpower and ego. It is the core of your potential and uniqueness as an individual; who you are and what you are about.
What is a “Sun Sign?”
Your Sun Sign is a key part of an astrological chart, and represents your general temperament. It is determined simply by the day and month of your birth and provides the answer to the common question “What sign are you?”
Your Sun Sign represents your basic individuality, who you are when you are alone. This is a very important piece of your astrological profile to be sure, but it is a small part — there are hundreds of other variables to take into account. It is a mistake to think that knowing about your Sun Sign is going to deliver information about how you process things, interact with the world or deal with emotions and relationships. These and other aspects of your being are reflected by other heavenly bodies and how they all are “aspected” to each other.
Think of it this way: imagine you are looking down a long hallway and see someone at a distance. You’re asked to describe the person, but all you can see is they’re wearing a red sweatshirt. As you walk closer, you’re able to discern that they”ve got blonde hair. Walk closer still and you can see that it’s a woman. Closer still and you see freckles on her face.
Astrology operates in much the same way. Knowing the month and day of your birth is to see the most obvious element of an astrological profile — the Sun Sign. But take a step closer, or add other information that’s vital to an astrologer, such as the person’s year of birth, exact time of birth and location of birth, and a story unfolds, layer by marvelous layer, detail by detail.
It’s worth mentioning that daily horoscopes, the most commonly recognized form of astrology in the world, often appear to offer only a vague reflection of a person’s Sun Sign. As you can see, there are many working parts to your astrological makeup, and writing any forecast without benefit of specific birth data is much like being asked to describe someone in great detail from a distance.
That being said, horoscopes can be a wonderful tool for getting the general astrological “lay of the land,” and a good daily astrologer is expert at keeping us apprised of general conditions. We’re extremely proud to feature professional astrologer Rick Levine and his daily horoscopes on the Tarot.com site, and we hope they’ll inspire you to learn more about astrology and your own astrological makeup.
A full astrological report will not only interpret your Sun Sign, but will also tell you how it affects and is affected by your particular Rising Sign, Moon Sign and the other elements of your birth chart.
What is a “Moon Sign?”
Every 2 and 1/3 days, the Moon moves from one sign to the next, taking a total of 28 days to do a complete trip around the zodiac, stopping for a visit in one of each of the twelve signs of the zodiac before starting the same journey all over again.
If your Rising Sign represents your “external” self, it can be said that your Moon Sign represents your “inner” or “emotional” self, or the way you handle your emotions and the way you truly feel, whether you reveal it or not. To most astrologers, the moon is also about your intuition, your inner vulnerabilities, your fears as well as the things that can stir your heart. As is the case with the Ascendant, your Moon Sign may be entirely different from your Sun Sign, and reading your daily horoscope for your Moon Sign can also provide yet more insight into your personal astrological makeup.
A full astrological report will not only interpret your Moon Sign, but will also tell you how it affects and is affected by your particular Sun Sign, Rising Sign and the other elements of your birth chart.
What is a “Rising Sign?”
Your Rising Sign or “Ascendant” reflects that 1/12th slice of the sky that was ascending on the Eastern horizon the moment you were born, and is located on the cusp of the First House of your astrological chart. Knowing your birth time is a necessary piece of information to determine your Rising Sign.
Your Rising Sign is an important part of your astrological chart, because it represents the way you project yourself outward, the way you’re seen and perceived by the rest of the world and the general “impression” that you make on others. It is frequently the case that a person will have a Rising Sign that is entirely different from their Sun Sign, and learning about your Rising Sign, and even reading your daily horoscope for that sign, can provide greater insight into your personal astrological makeup.

Do you think reading about zodiacs and believing it is psychotic?
My friend said that Im a psycho for reading the zodiac stuff.Although,he was kiddin’ it got me thinking.I like to read this stuff ‘cos it is true more than often and also you get a general idea of a person’s nature.what do you think?
Answer by Jamie
I think conceptually, astrology makes way more sense than religion. It’s not a bunch of ideas pulled out of thin air. It’s systematic. And since we’re essentially made up of the same space junk as the planets and stars, it doesn’t seem all that unreasonable that our behavior might fit into the same predictable pattern as the movement of the solar system. Just my thoughts…

How can you judge people with a calendar? Do you know anyone that chooses their birthday? Did you?
People should be judged as unique, individual persons, not based on what arbitrary group they belong to. To paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr., a person should be judged not by the color of their skin — nor the date and time of their birth — but by the content of their character.
Answer by A U D A X
No, it’s not psychotic. It is a system that is also based on tangible things. Such as the stars, planetary bodies and the calculations of such. It’s a centuries old system, dating back to the Babylonians.
the calculations can even correlate with the day, down to the moment of birth.
Which was so interesting to me, at least. and yes, I’ve found most of it to be true especially when I
Researched the aspects.
(It’s called a birth chart)
However, don’t read the daily horoscopes, they are more based
