What is your sun sign gender?The Western Astrology essentially charts the movement of the Sun through 12 constellations. Your stars are defined by the presence of Sun in a particular constellation at the time of your birth. 

These stars are then thought to play a part in shaping or having an influence on the thought processes, behavior and actions of an individual.  As human beings with a body make up 98% water, it makes sense that we are subtly predisposed by the sun and moon movements, much like the ocean. Locate your own sign and get more of an understanding of your personality, relationship and career choices.

The Sun signs are divided into certain groups based on the characteristics they represent.

Sign Gender

For example, out of the 12 signs, the odd numbered signs are considered to be masculine signs representing attributes like keen minded, strength, virility, analysis and logic. Hence Aries, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, Leo and Aquarius are masculine signs. Similarly feminine signs represent attributes like compassion, balance, fertility, synthesis and emotions. Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces are considered to be feminine signs.

Sign Quality

Another defining characteristic is the Quality of the sign.  The Quality represents the pace the astrology sign is most comfortable in taking action in a situation.  The initiators are known as Cardinal Signs and include Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.  They are ambitious and eager to get things going, now. Fixed Signs, such as Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are better at maintaining consistency and steadily pacing themselves toward a desired objective. Finally Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are Mutable Signs.  Mutable signs are the laid back, go with the flow type and are often found playing the role of a mediator between the Cardinal and Fixed signs. This grouping has its origins in how the four seasons change during the year. The Cardinals initiate a season; the Fixed signs continue it and the Mediators wrap it up. Similarly in life, the Cardinals are the best originators of action; be it in business, love, friendship or society. People from the Fixed Signs are the best at continuing the initiative and those from Mutable Signs are great at finishing it.

All the signs are ruled by particular planets which give the signs their inherent character. Aries and Scorpio are ruled by Mars. The red planet is considered the warlord of the gods known for its energy, competitive spirit and robust health. Taurus and Libra are governed by Venus. The symbol associated with Venus is of love for fine arts, beauty and charm. No wonder Taurians are beautiful and Librans love luxury!

The dual natured Gemini and the analytical Virgo are blessed with great intellect and communication skills due to their ruling planet, Mercury. While Cancer gets its emotional personality from the Moon; the Sun blesses Leo with its charisma and leadership.

Jupiter governs Sagittarius and Pisces. The archer Sagittarius is known for its spirit and generosity. Pisces or the ‘Fish’ are responsive and romantic.

Both the Capricorn and Aquarius are ruled by Saturn which lent them maturity. The sense of responsibility and awareness of reality are also characteristics of these signs due to the rule of Saturn.  

Astrology is symbolic in a sense that it is a medium to communicate thoughts across ages. Everything might change but the Sun and the stars and the planets are going to be undeniable as long as mankind is on earth! The inherent characteristics of each sign and the related groupings bring out the ancient wisdom about how people behave under various circumstances. It is interesting stuff to know!

The Sun doesn't just bestow mere "charisma and leadership," but also: strength, limitless energy, vitality, willpower, courage, dominance, and overall health. So again...please get it straight.The Sun is the most powerful force in the solar system for a reason.
