The Zodiac Signs and Behavior.

My belief is that the nature of our behavior is based on astronomy; hence the reason that
people who share the same zodiac sign have very similar characteristics, and sometimes a
combination of people with certain zodiac signs cannot get along or are very compatible.
Sometimes I can tell from a person's sign because of their behavior, and likes and
dislikes. Learning more about astrology and the zodiac signs helps us to understand people
and their actions. Many argue that it is coincidence, but the odds are too high to be
that.

It was not up until 200 years ago that people started identifying their zodiac sign with
the position of the Sun. So when a person is asked what is his or sign, the Sun was
passing through on the day that person was born. This can be demonstrated on a birth
chart. Our birth charts are special "sky maps" which reflect the quality of the exact
moment we drew our first breath. With that first breath, we each began our own incredible
hero's journey through life on planet Earth. The birth positions of the Sun, the Moon,
Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto all play their own
unique symbolic roles as messengers and ambassadors of the universe.

The argument is that some people question why the description of the sign does not fit
them. The answer is that there are three parts to the birth chart: the sun, the moon, and
the ascendant. The sun (fast) travels through all 12 zodiac signs during the course of
approximately a year. The moon (faster) travels through all 12 zodiac signs during the
course of approximately a month, and the ascendant (fastest): travels through all 12
zodiac signs during the course of a 24 hour day. Also, a birth chart and interpretation or
either a horoscope and compatibility report cannot be accurate for everyone born under a
specific zodiac sign unless the astrologer has accurate information about the time of
birth, date of birth and place of birth. Sometimes the time is not known and an astrologer
will use 12:01 P.M. which, while not as accurate as it should be, will put one as close to
the target as possible. Without this information everything one reads about one's sign
anywhere will be generalized information.

Cancer, for example, is located in the astrological element of Water. Of the four
astrological elements (Fire, Earth, Air, and Water) water is the most ancient, primitive,
and instinctual. Because it is the most primal element, water is also the element furthest
away from rational, describable, consciousness and thought. Therefore, water energy tends
to defy our meager attempts at coming up with rational explanations and descriptions. In
astrology, the element of water is associated with feeling, sensitivity, and emotion. All
three Signs placed in the element of water (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) are rather
difficult to describe or measure out their true essence.

Most Geminians, the sign of the twins which are ruled by Mercury, have identical
characteristics to their sign. On the downside, they have a tendency to criticize,

    Totem and Taboo Julien Rouleau In Totem and Taboo, Freud Sigmund explain the origin of religion of different tribe found around the world. Although related, the two words have quite distinct meanings. According to Compton’s Encyclopedia, “totemism is a term of Ojibwa American Indian origin that refers to an animal or plant associated either with a group of blood-related persons such as a family or with part of a tribe”. The plant or animal is a totem. As such, totemism is a word used to define r

    Streetcar Named Desire Why Cant Blanche and Stanley Just Get Along? In A Streetcar Named Desire, Tennessee Williams uses astrology and character names to further define the two main characters, Blanche and Stanley. Blanche is a Virgo, whereas Stanley is a Capricorn. Both have very different characteristics, which cannot blend with one another. It is evident that Blanche and Stanley alienate each other further because of their astrological signs; Virgos are more sensitive while Capricorns are mo

A definition of a horoscope is: the illustration of the position of the sun, moon, and planets from a given location on earth, usually at birth. Which simply means, where everything in the universe was in relation to everything else when you were born. People have been finding their horoscopes for a long time now, it\'s nothing new. The earliest known horoscope was from 409 B.C. where it started to spread in the East with the co

  • Astrology
    Astrology Astrology is the science of certain cryptic relations between the celestial bodies and terrestrial life. It is considered an art and a practical science. It lays no claim to be what used to be called an exact science, but studies certain predispositions or tendencies in human life, which are sometimes indicated so clearly that they become virtual certainties. The possible uses of astrology are endless and may be used to a variety of means. Since the days of the Chaldeans, it was known

    Creation Stories of Babylon, Egypt, and Genesis Creation myths of Babylon, Egypt, and Genesis There are many similarities in the Babylonian, Egyptian, and Genesis stories. In all the stories one god creates man and explains how all things on earth come to being. They also set up their calendars and show examples of evil within each story to set up moral rules for man to live by. How do these elements compare between each of these stories? In the Babylonian myth the God Marduk creates man from th

    Robert Burns People have made entire careers off the belief in and practices of astrology. The idea of the stars determining our fate has withheld people\'s interest for centuries. Robert Burns, an Aquarius, was very anti-superstition. He had almost no belief in astrological predictions or zodiac signs. There is some humor in this though, because through Burns\' poems and songs this pseudoscience shows just how accurate it can be. The most parallel example of Burns\' personality and his Aquarius

  • The Zodiac Killer
    The Zodiac Killer Much is unknown about the Zodiac killer, but given what is known about serial killers in general, this man was probably born between 1938 and 1943. That would make his age between 25 and 30 years old at the time of his first murder in Vallejo, California, in 1968. Also, that age estimate works with witness statements and it\'s supported by Zodiac\'s references to his victims in younger terms in his letters of 1969. Zodiac wasn\'t an attractive character from what we know. He ma

Genetic factors and other influences play a significant role, but the birth order within the family plays a larger role in determining the personality of children. Countless academic studies say your place in the family is such a strong factor in developing your personality that it can have a

Karl Jaspers states that between the eighth and fourth centuries B.C.E, "great changes took place in all the civilized world" (qtd. in Basham 36), and the great thinkers of these times began thinking independently and individually. Moreover, "after these great thinkers the world was never the same again" (qtd. in Basham 36-37). These times were dubbed the "axial period" (qtd. in Bash
  • Astrology
    Astrology The basic astrological assumptions are not hard to grasp. For if astronomy is the study of the movements of the heavenly bodies, then astrology is the study of the effects of those movements. The astronomers of the ancient world assumed a division of the universe whereby the superior, immutable bodies of the celestial worlds ruled over the terrestrial or sublunary sphere, where all was mortality and change. It was assumed that the stars had special qualities and influences which were t
