What is Astrology?

Astrology is a system for describing the order and rhythms of life in picture and symbols. Astrology assumes that the planets of our solar system, their cycles of revolution, their respective positions and aspects, all show an effect on people / nature, and that there are interdependencies between the cosmic cycles and human life. It is important to understand that this influence is not fixed, and that we have free-will. I like to believe that Astrology provides us with the Signposts - and as if we were taking a trip on the motorway to - for example Brighton - we could choose to follow certain signposts, or take our own particular route.

Each of the ten planets, including the sun and the moon, symbolises unique potential forces. Planets represent different cosmic forces that affect our basic character traits and your changing urges and needs. They provide the energies that drive your physical, emotional, and mental and intuition systems. We are all aware of the influence of the Moon, and the planets are reputed to also have such an influence, although on a more subtle level.

What is a Sun Sign?

The Sun Sign is the sign on the zodiac in which the Sun stood at the time of   birth. It is what people usually refer to when they say they are a "Taurus" or a "Libra". As it takes the Sun 365 days to make a complete transit through the twelve signs of the zodiac, the sun spends about a month in each sign. Your Sun Sign is determined according to what time of the year you were born.

Do all the signs get along?

Relationships: The following groups of signs are the most compatible, (although when a personal chart is drawn up, the Ascendant and planets' locations in the person's chart is taken in consideration for a more accurate picture.) Other sign / elemental combinations do also work in different way, but the following are the most compatible:

Aries - Leo - Sagittarius = FIRE SIGNS

Taurus - Virgo - Capricorn = EARTH SIGNS

Gemini - Libra - Aquarius = AIR SIGNS

Cancer - Scorpio - Pisces = WATER SIGNS
