Warm greetings to everyone!
Looking at Sun Signs- the “Western” Zodiac
One of the most common approaches to astrology is by observing Sun Signs . There are 12 signs in the zodiac, and @MeganB gives a very thorough explanation of each (and also how you can find which is your sign) in her post What’s Your Sun Sign? - The Zodaic :
When someone asks you, “what is your sign?” they are most likely referring to your sun sign- the reading of where your sign was in the heavens in relation to the sun at the time of your birth .
However, you can also find your Moon Sign - which is the corresponding sign to where the moon was at the time of your birth. You can find your moon sign using an online Astrology calculator such as the Astrocal Moon Sign Calculator .
It is also possible to find your Rising/Ascendant Sign, which is the sign that rose on the eastern horizon at the time of your birth. Astrosofa has a Rising Sign Calculator if you would like to calculate your rising sign .
Looking at Animal Signs- the “Eastern” Zodiac
The Chinese Zodiac is another common zodiac that ties each yearly cycle to an animal from a Chinese legend. The set dates of each year do not align with the modern Gregorian calendar, as the Chinese Zodiac was created to coincide with the Lunar Calendar .
In the Chinese Zodiac, years have both an Animal and one of five Elements: Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, and Earth.
This Chinese Zodiac Calculator will tell you which animal you are associated with, as well as any lucky numbers, colors, flowers, and your horoscope for 2020
Combining Astrology Types
Did you know that you can combine your Zodiac Star Sign with your Chinese Zodiac Animal to get your Primal Astrology Sign?
By locating both of your zodiacs on the Primal Zodiac Sign List, you will find your Primal Zodiac.
As a Scorpio and a Rooster = the corresponding primal sign is an Owl
If you chose to locate your Primal Animal, you will find a full horoscope that offers possible things to be aware of and advice for the future
What do you think about Astrology?
- I prefer Zodiac Signs (sun/moon/rising)
- I prefer the Chinese Zodiac
- I’m interested in both- signs and animals!
- I’m interested in another kind of Astrology
- Astrology doesn’t interest me
