What are the Astrological Signs?

Astrology is the study of how cosmic objects in the Solar System influence our lives. Astrology is used to predict someone’s personality, strengths and weaknesses, romantic relationships and other personal information based on the position of the planets, Moon and Sun on that person’s birth date.

In astrology, there are two signs which influence your overall emotional balance: the Sun and Moon signs. The most basic thing people understand of astrology is the Sun sign (position of the Sun at birth) which predicts whether someone will become a victim to certain misfortunes or benefit from foreseen circumstances.
