As per the astrological traditions, the sun sign of a person is that particular zodiac sign in which the Sun was, at the time of his/her birth. The ecliptic, the apparent path through which the Sun passes in the sky, is divided into twelve equal parts and each of the part comprises of a separate zodiac/astrological sign. When the sun enters a particular sign in which it will spend the whole month, that zodiac sign becomes the sunsign or star sign for that month. In sun sign astrology, the placements of only those planets are taken in account, which affect the Sun.
Each of the star signs is associated with a different symbol and
represents the zodiac sign in which the Sun was at the time of a
person's birth. The description of a sun sign provides information about
the basic personality traits of person who is born under that sign. Sun
rules willpower and ego and the sun signs tell us about the uniqueness
of an individual, who he is and what he is about to become. In the
following lines, we have provided the basic description of all the sun
signs (star signs), along with their symbols and meaning.
Aquarius 'The Water Bearer' is the second last sign of the zodiac. An Aquarian lives in the real world, but he will talk about the future. He is very kind and peace loving, but likes going against the conventions every now and then. Usually, he is very soft spoken, but can surprise you by passing very offhanded remarks and statements.
The moment you come across an Aries, the first thing that comes to your mind is his/her friendly nature. The friendliest person in your neighborhood will most probably be an Aries personality. People having an Aries profile cannot tolerate injustice, always fight against it and will defend the weak. Aries, The Ram, is the first sign of the zodiac, considered to be the infant representing birth.
Cancer zodiac sign has the symbol of 'The Crab'. One of the basic characteristics of a Cancerian is that he is very prone to mood swings, which are matched by changing emotions. At one point of time, you may have seen him in a typical party mood, enjoying himself and laughing at other people's jokes.
The zodiac sign of Capricorn is represented by the symbol of 'The Goat', more precisely a Sea-Goat. Capricorns are not the ones who seek limelight; rather they make up the audience that admires. They are like the tortoise, which moves slowly and still wins the race. A Capricorn finds it extremely easy to merge into a group and will look like one of its original members.
The sign of Gemini, having the symbol of 'The Twins', is considered to be the child of the zodiac. Just as his symbol, a Gemini person will always have two different sides to his changeable personality. He changes his mind too quickly, along with his clothes, his job, his love life or even his residence.
The zodiac sign of Leo has the symbol of 'The Lion' and just like a lion; a Leo believes that he rules everyone else. Don't tell him he doesn't, it will break his big, loving, proud heart. Leos can easily go from being vigorously outgoing to plain lazy. If you want to find a Leo, go to the most dazzling places in the town.
Libra, The Balance, is the seventh sign of the zodiac. The first and foremost personality trait you will notice about a Libran is his politeness. He loves people and hates to be rude to anyone. However, crowds do not attract him. A Libran is extremely good at solving a quarrel between two people quite amicably.
Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, which has the symbol of 'The Fish'. Pisces people are not much interested in the material things of life and are not the ones to run after money. It's not that they are against riches, but they are more aware of its impermanence. They are not greedy about anything, least of all wealth. A Piscean has an easy carelessness about tomorrow.
Sagittarius has the symbol of 'The Archer'. The people born under this zodiac sign just don't know how to give compliments. Their compliment will be like "You are looking so good in this dress. I bet no one can make out that huge beer belly" of yours. It's not that they are trying to offend you or something. A Sagittarian tries his best to be cheerful and friendly, but fails miserably.
Scorpio, with the symbol of 'The Scorpion', is one of the three water signs of the zodiac. One of the first things that you notice about Scorpios are their eyes; they will be very intense and totally hypnotic. Infact, many people find it very difficult to stand steady under a Scorpio's constant gaze. His eyes seem to be penetrating your soul, knowing your deepest secrets and desires.
Taurus zodiac sign is represented by the symbol of 'The Bull' and just like a bull, a Taurus person is strong and silent. In the first instance, a Taurean comes across as extremely quiet and reserved person. Only after you get close to him will you have a proper conversation, rather than simple monologues. He moves deliberately and is as steady as the 'Rock of Gibraltar'. Once a Taurus has made up his mind, it is impossible to move him even slightly.
Virgo has the symbol of 'The Virgin', but the similarity ends there itself. People born under the zodiac sign of Virgo are very devoted to their families. They are not much talkative and mostly stand away from a crowd. However, they will be noticing even the smallest detail. The typical Virgo personality traits include perfectionism. Everything around him has to be just perfect. He is one of those who prefer carrying the exact amount of change for the bread, rather than asking the shopkeeper for a change.
