Sun Signs: What Yours Says About You

about sun influence in astrology
The Egyptians called him Ra; the Romans, Apollo; the Greeks, Helios. We know him as the Sun — the masculine counterpart to the feminine Moon and the male Yang to the female Yin. Although it received a bad reputation in the ‘70s for being a corny pickup line, the question “What’s your sign?” is what people typically ask if they want to know your astrology sign. Astrologers refer to this as your “Sun sign.”Your Sun sign is determined by which zodiac sign the Sun was in when you were born. Every year, this solar powerhouse travels through each of the 12 zodiac signs where he takes off his shoes, kicks up his feet, and makes himself at home for about a month. He’s the dominant force in your astrological chart, ruling over your desires, expressions, and personality.

In order to truly understand yourself and how you relate to others, looking to your Sun sign can give you some keen insights and help you navigate the often-tricky path through life.

Aries: The Initiator
March 21 – April 19

You’re honest, upfront, and usually get what you want. Your intimidating energy has been likened to a bullet — it speeds in a bee line with no time to waste, and when it’s over, it’s over. Because you crave excitement, it’s no wonder that you prefer the company of others who share your impulsive soul.

Taurus: The Preserver
April 20 – May 20

Like the bull that represents your sign, you’re exceptionally tenacious once you’ve planted those hooves and made a decision. Your determination, diligence, and endless supply of patience serve you well in many aspects of your life. Creature comforts top your list of priorities, and you always make sure your loved ones are pampered and content.

Gemini: The Seeker
May 21 – June 20

You’re happiest when multitasking. If you’re forced to sit still, you’ll find a way to keep your mind busy. You’re constantly on the lookout for conversation, new information, and ways to employ your talent for wordsmithing. You’re fast-paced and fun to be around, which is why you’re rarely alone.

Cancer: The Caretaker
June 21 – July 22

Your main priorities in life are home, family, and security. There’s no better nurturer or comforter than you. You enjoy spoiling people and need to feel needed. You rely heavily on intuition and first impressions, caring less about physical appearance and choosing to focus more on the vibes you get from people.

Leo: The Ruler
July 23 – Aug. 22

You’re royalty and deserve to be treated as such. You lions, in turn, treat your inner circle as if they’re your pride. You’re brave and always ready to hop on stage and entertain the masses. You go out of your way to make friends and family feel as if they’re the most important people in the world.

Virgo: The Fixer
Aug. 23 – Sept. 22

You’re detail-oriented, meticulous, and talented at getting right to the heart of the matter. You thrive in clean and ordered environments, taking pride in the fact that you keep everything you own in good condition. You tend to gravitate toward “fixer-uppers” because you enjoy having a hand in helping people to be the best they can be.

Libra: The Balancer
Sept. 23 – Oct. 22

Like the scales that represent your sign, you constantly strive to maintain balance in everything. You subconsciously seek out people and situations that are somewhat lopsided and need righting. You’re charming and friendly, so people are generally willing to allow you that task.

Scorpio: The Investigator
Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

Nobody loves an enigma more than you do. You’re in your element when plumbing the depths of the dark and mysterious — something that most others are afraid to do. You allow only a select few into your inner circle, and if someone betrays your hard-earned trust, they may as well forget about a second chance.

Sagittarius: The Adventurer
Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

Your antics are hilarious and, at times, downright outrageous. You seek adventure and excitement, taking great pleasure in exploring, traveling, and even participating in extreme sports. Your missions in life are to have as many new experiences as possible and to share those experiences with others.

Capricorn: The Realist
Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

Your work ethic is unrivalled. You know how to let your hair down and have a good time, but only if you feel you’ve earned it. Practical and trustworthy, you tend to be viewed as an authority figure. You guard the door to your inner circle carefully, and if someone has made it inside, it’s because you feel safe and secure with them.

Aquarius: The Observer
Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

You’re a professional people-watcher. At times, you focus so intently on things that you can appear aloof. You think outside the box and, therefore, can be viewed as unconventional — not that you mind. Because of this, you have the most eclectic and interesting group of friends of all the zodiac signs.

Pisces: The Empath
Feb. 19 – March 20

You’re famous for your intuition. Exceptionally sensitive, you’ll go out of your way to avoid glaring lights, loud noises, and negative people. When overwhelmed, you’ll seek to withdraw into your personal sanctuary to recharge your emotional batteries. You’re at your best when surrounded by calm, like-minded, and spiritual people.
