Each Zodiac Sign Is Unique
Every zodiac sign is different. Each sign is deeply and directly connected to its own planet, element, archetype, season, and more, all playing a role in the traits and emotions expressed by that sign. Understanding the nature of your own zodiac sign can help you gain personal perspective, growth, and a greater connection to the universe and the earth around you.

The Trailblazers of the Zodiac
Ruled by the quick and active Fire element, these three zodiac signs are all about initiation, enthusiasm, courage, and moving forward.

The Pragmatists of the Zodiac
Under the influence of the solid and practical Earth element, these three zodiac signs thrive on strength, determination, and practicality, and are at one with the physical world.

These three zodiac signs are associated with the Water element, giving them soft hearts, open minds, and old souls. They are lovers and nurturers, and live their lives with a deep understanding of what's happening around them -- the seen and the unseen.

More About the Zodiac Sun Signs
Your "zodiac sign" is so important, but it's just one of the signs that make up YOU! The Sun is just one part of your Astrology -- every key planet in our solar system has an impact on you, and is associated with a specific zodiac sign. So while you have one sign of the zodiac representing the Sun's location at your birth, you have another sign that represents your emotions (the location of the Moon at your birth), your love life (the location of Venus), and more!
So why is your Sun sign the most important of all? It represents who you are at your core: how you act, how you express yourself, who you are to yourself. It is "you" in your most basic sense, exhibiting your soul's current nature on its path through many lifetimes. So while you may feel one way at work, a different way at home, and an even different way in your relationships, your Sun sign's traits run through all of it.
All the people born under one Sun sign should NOT feel the same -- each of them has an entire Astrology birth chart impacting them that is different from all the others. Nonetheless, people born under one Sun sign can often find great camaraderie with others of the same sign, because their true nature is similar at its very core.
