In astrology knowing which of the Decans you fall under can explain the personality traits you possess.
If you have ever wondered why your character is not the same as others who share your Star Sign or your personality traits don't exactly match with the supposed popular personality traits that your Star Sign dictates, then you should look at Decans.
Each Star Sign of the Zodiac - Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces – is subdivided into the first Decan, second Decan and third Decan.
So the first Decan of Cancer personality traits can be quite different to third Decan of Cancer. And being a Scorpio first Decan will differ considerably to the character of a second or third Decan in Scorpio.
To find deeper meaning from your Astrology Star Sign you need to look at your Decan. A Decan is a 10 day subdivision to each of the 12 Sun Signs of the zodiac - Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. Ancient astrologers used these subdivisions to refine each Astrology Star Sign and attributed them to minor planetary influences, which subtly change with the ruling influence of the period. And although you will have the dominant characteristics of your particular Star Sign, your personally traits and character will also be affected by which of the Decans you were born under.
