The Earth is positioned under the constellations and although signs don’t correspond with the constellations anymore, we are still under the influence of seasons and planetary movements in the same way as we were in the past.
By analyzing the projection of the planetary positions (including the Sun & Moon) on the Ecliptic at the moment of birth, astrology can provide insight to a person’s basic characteristics through interpretation.
Astrology claims that everything happens for a reason and can also provide some answers as to why certain things happen. Astrology can provide individuals a better understanding of themselves and the divine forces, or energies around them.
There are 12 zodiac signs, and each sign has its own strengths, weaknesses, traits, desires, and attitude towards life.
