Why do we have astrological signs

Zodiac Signs - Fate is written in the stars

The signs of the zodiac or the so-called signs of the zodiac, not everyone likes to believe in them and some dismiss them as nonsense ... and yet most of us know our own. In astrology, the constellation of the hour of birth not only provides information about one's own zodiac sign, but also about many other signs, such as the ascendant and the moon sign. Each of the zodiac signs is assigned certain character traits, properties or ways of thinking, which often shape those born under these signs, but we are also influenced in their kind by the above and many other signs.

Western astrology is based on the tropical zodiac, which is defined by various fixed points of the year (the shortest day in the north = beginning of Capricorn; the equinox in March = beginning of Aries, etc.). The different signs of the zodiac are created by dividing the calendar year, if one imagines this as a circle (360 °), into twelve equal sections of 30 °, each of which is assigned 1 sign of the zodiac. This means that this so-called tropical zodiac, which divides our zodiac signs, does without constellations because it is based on the course of the year. But each star sign has been assigned a constellation

In addition, the zodiac signs were roughly divided into four groups, which are similar: The group of fire, earth, air and water signs.

Fire sign

(Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)

The fire signs are full of energy and therefore often very dominant and passionate.


Earth sign

(Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)

The earth signs are structured, realistic and determined.


Air sign

(Libra, Aquarius, Gemini)

The air signs are social, intellectual, and communication is the most important thing to your mind.

The watermarks are very emotional, sensitive and have a strong empathy.

Have the zodiac signs shifted? Are you actually another sign of the zodiac?

The answer to these questions, according to Western astronomy, is “No!”.

Due to new astronomical findings from NASA and the erroneous transfer of these findings from gossip magazines to astrology, there was a misconception that the zodiac signs had shifted, so that 86% of people now have a different zodiac sign and there is also a 13th zodiac sign, the snake bearer. The findings of NASA are the astronomical knowledge that due to precession (the change in direction of the earth's axis over the years, due to various factors) the constellations have shifted. Constellations are names for the fixed stars in the sky, which, combined with fantasy, result in certain shapes, such as the little chariot or the bull. They are used for orientation. Gossip magazines also transferred this shift of the constellations to the zodiac signs, but this is wrong, since there are two completely different systems: astrology is based, as already explained above, on the tropical zodiac sign and this is in no way related to the astronomical constellations. Therefore, shifting the constellations has no effect on the signs or signs of the zodiac that we know.

Astronomy is a science, as opposed to astrology, so the astrological system cannot be explained with the help of astronomical knowledge.
