Star Signs of the Zodiac point millions of people worldwide turn to their daily horoscope to guide them, to inform them or just to entertain them. Astrology, is of course the study of the influence that the sun, moon, stars and planets have on our lives. The position of the sun, planets and other celestial bodies at the time of someone's birth is said to shape their character and personality which in turn affect their choices and decisions throughout life.
Most people know their astrology star sign, which is more correctly termed a Sun Sign and look forward to reading their daily horoscope.
A sun sign refers to one of the 12 constellations of the Zodiac. The Zodiac is the collective term that describes the twelve constellations that divide the sky into 30° divisions.
These twelve divisions or sun signs are named Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. These sun signs are categorised into four Elements of Air, Fire, Earth and Water.
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are from the element of Air. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are from the element of Fire. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are from the element of Earth. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are from the element of Water.
A further categorization comes in the form of what are known as the three Qualities of Astrology. These are Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable. These astrology Qualities help to further describe and give an indication of the major characteristics of the star signs and assist Astrologers to provide a fuller horoscope.
For astrologers a sun sign alone cannot begin to describe the personality and likely outcomes of a person’s life. Just as a daily horoscope cannot begin to predict someone’s lifetime. To generate a more in-depth and accurate horoscope forecast, astrologers use the position of each planet at the time of birth and combine this with other factors such as houses and angles.
The four Cardinal signs are Aries from the element of Fire, Cancer from the element of Water, Libra from the element of Air, and Capricorn from the element of Earth. The Cardinal signs indicate action, initiation and assertiveness. All four Cardinal signs like to initiate and control their lives and their surroundings.
Cardinal, of course means first and the four Cardinal signs are the first signs that commence the seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn (Fall) and Winter. Although very different characteristics represent the signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn they do have things in common, virtue to the fact that they share the Cardinal quality. They all like to take the lead, are ambitious, creative and spontaneous.
The four Fixed signs are Taurus from the element of Earth, Leo from the element of Fire, Scorpio from the element of Water, and Aquarius from the element of Air. The Fixed signs indicate stability, reliability and patience. All four Fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius share similar traits and can be stable, dependable, patient and loyal.
The Fixed signs continue what has been commenced and because they are in the middle of each season tend to be more settled and secure than the Cardinal and Mutable signs.
The four Mutable signs are Gemini from the element of Air, Virgo from the element of Earth, Sagittarius from the element of Fire, and Pisces from the element of Water. The Mutable Signs indicate flexibility, adaptability and good communication.
The Mutable signs come at the end of each season and as such are more welcoming of change and have an adaptable and flexible attitude.
The Mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces share similar traits of reinvention, acceptance of change and resourceful.
Many people believe that the Star Sign, or Sun Sign, that you are born under has an influence on your personality.
For example, those born under the star sign Leo predominantly share certain personality traits such as a commanding and dominant nature, and a loving and generous character.
Similarly, those born under the sign of Virgo are characterised as being calm, stable, tidy and unlikely to take risks in their life.
However, you may feel that you do not exactly fit into the
stereotypical traits and personality of your particular sign of the
Zodiac. And indeed, some scientific studies have used such
inconsistencies to "prove" that attributing personality traits to Zodiac
signs is false.
For example you may be a Virgo who is very untidy and likes to take risks. You may have been born under the Astrology star sign of Leo and are terribly shy and hate to be the centre of attention.
If you are a Sagittarian you may go against your type and are seldom spontaneous. preferring instead to have time to think and plan your actions. Conversely you may be a Capricorn with a devil may care attitude.
However, such inconstancies can be explained by Decans (see below).

So 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.
But what are 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.
