Everything will always begin with the Signs & Planets.
Both the signs and planets have characteristics and getting to know them is important when you begin your Astrology Learning.
It’s also important to know that there are many signs that make up our personal astrology – not just our Sun Sign. Our Sun sign is the sign the Sun was living in at the time we were born. It takes close to one year for the Sun to return back to the same spot it was at our birth. That moment is called our “Solar Return” and what is more commonly referred to as our birthday.
The MOST important sign in our astrology is our RISING SIGN – or the sign that I think of as “waking up” when we were born. Our exact time of birth determines our rising sign.
Another thing to keep in mind is that each sign works with a planet. We can think of them as a “team” working together. Knowing who your special planet is important when it comes to understanding more about your personal astrology.
