Are You Not Typical for Your Sign?
When your Sun sign description just doesn't fit

by Celeste L. Walker

What's your sign?

When someone asks your sign, he wants to know which Zodiac sign the Sun was in when you were born. Usually it's easy to place anyone in a sign, although there are twelve days a year -- days when the Sun changes from one sign to the next -- when a clear answer isn't possible.

We all know about Sun signs. The familiar little astrology booklets are based on your birthday Sun's position. The "daily horoscopes" that grace many newspapers supposedly are, too, although most are really based on absolutely nothing.

(As an astrologer I should be able to back-engineer the text and see where the writer is coming from. I've tried ... and believe me, I can't. The people who call this stuff "nonsense" have my vote. IYAM, it absolutely is!)

Not the only one

Yes, The Sun is an important member of your horoscope, but he's not the only one -- and may not be the most important. Sun energy has powerful natural boosters, but factors can overpower it and someone who knows Astrology can see that and describe it, tell you what this means about your life and character and how you probably experience this formidable competition.

Besides The Sun there are nine other cosmic citizens in a horoscope -- The Moon and the eight known planets. Each is also in a Zodiac sign ... which may be the same as your Sun sign or may have nothing to do with it.

It may help your Sun energy ... which lifts both the Sun's power and its ally's influence. Or it may hinder and conflict with your Sun energy ... which causes problems, depletes your Sun's power -- and may not do the hindrance much good either.

The same ... but different

This is why people born in the same Sun sign can have vastly different personalities. We each come with a complex, unique combination of other energies who have their own power and attitudes, their own interests, their own expression.

Only people born very close to the same day and time you were born will share your same complex combination of Inner Selves. Granted, lots of people quality. But, seriously, if you don't have a twin, how many people have you met born on your birthday near the same place or time?

What makes you unique

We all contain the combined influence of ten planets, twelve signs, twelve houses in the horoscope. If you have a cluster of planets in a sign other than your Sun's sign, you'll show off the qualities of that second sign so strongly people would swear you belong there ... and they'll have a point.

If people tell you you're not a "typical" member of your sign ... or if you conclude the usual description doesn't fit you, do yourself a favor. Get your chart done by a competent astrologer. Find out why this is. Find out who you are. Money spent to understand yourself better is cash well-spent.

Everyday Astrology -- Daily Horoscope -- Astrology for Real Life ---> So what's happening in the world today? Find out with our daily horoscope feature -- Everyday Astrology at Enchanted Spirit.

What Does It Mean to be 'Born on the Cusp?' ---> Being "born on the cusp" to most people means a birthday (usually their own) falls on or about the 21st of the month. This is approximately the day the Sun changes from one sign to another in the Zodiac, although calendars and other human structures being what they are, even that causes confusion.

What is a Horoscope? -- Astrology's Most Essential Tool ---> Sometimes this word is used to designate the forecast or prediction of events based on the alignment of planets in the sky at any given time. As such, it has been seriously abused and twisted by the popularized (and usually meaningless and sappy) "fortune-cookie" versions that appear in newspaper features and other products we all know so well.

What is the Zodiac? ---> The Zodiac is an imaginary belt in the heavens approximately 20 degrees wide, containing the path of the Sun the Moon and that of the principle Planets in this Solar System with the occasional exception of Pluto.

The Houses of the Horoscope -- What life areas do your Natal Chart Houses rule? ---> Defining the Departments of Life

The Sun in General -- Your Essential Self of Power, Will, Vitality and Ambition ---> The essence of you -- In Astrology, The Sun represents your basic core identity. It gives information about the qualities of your ego, your individual self-expression, your self-image and your sense of personal identity.

The Moon in General -- Your Inner Self of Feelings, Emotions and Intuition ---> Welcome to your inner world -- In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs. It reflects our basic habits, instincts and automatic reactions. It speaks to some elements of our Karma and childhood home, our upbringing, family background and specifically our relationship with our mother (or major mother figure from the past.)

Mars in General -- Your Inner Self of Action, Initiative and Self-Assertion ---> Red is a Mars color! -- Symbol of energy and ambition -- In Astrology, Mars represents physical energy, your ability to take action and your instincts for self-assertion and aggression. Mars supports your independence and your ability to set goals and achieve them.

What Does Mercury Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In mythology, Mercury was the winged messenger of the Gods. -- Your mind -- at work and play -- In Astrology, Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind. It tells a lot about your intellectual self; your ability to study, learn, analyze, communicate and work with information.

Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Learning stuff, using your mind and putting it to work -- Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life your want for yourself.

What Does Venus Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Pink is a Venus color. -- Named for the goddess of love -- Venus, modestly shrouded in clouds when photographed, is named for the mythological goddess of love. It is often seen as the evening star -- so bright and shimmering some say it gets mistaken for a UFO. Maybe. Maybe not.

Venus in General -- Your Inner Selves of Resource Management and Relationships ---> Support comes in many forms -- According to dime-store astrology ... the kind most people know from the little booklets they buy on newstands ... Venus in Astrology rules the two alluring topics of money and love. Like Mercury, Venus rules two Zodiac signs -- Taurus and Libra, and there is, indeed, a connection here between Venus ... money ... and love.
