Twelve Zodiac Signs


zodiac signs image

The zodiac signs also known as “sun signs” indicate which sector the sun is in at any particular time . The astrology zodiac itself is the path of the Earth’s orbit around the sun.

The twelve signs of the zodiac follow a pattern that never  changes: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. The sun is always in one zodiac sign or another, it can never be in two signs at the same time. Each of these zodiac signs represents certain positive as well as negative characteristics in human behavior.

These twelve astrology signs of the zodiac are thirty degree segments of the zodiac and are associated with four elements: fire, earth, air and water and three modalities: cardinal, fixed and mutable.

We have all twelve  zodiac signs in our horoscope, and their effect is determined by the position of the planets in the signs and the interaction between the astrology zodiac signs and the houses of the horoscope.
