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.
