What's your zodiac sign and
what does it mean? Each star sign has a different meaning,
and your horoscope is made up of the sun signs and their attributes,
and the placement of the planets and signs in the houses of your unique
Today's planet postions in the signs are here.The sign and degree are correct in real time.
Most people think of their
"sign" as meaning where the Sun was when they were
born, but you could have elements of several different signs
contributing to your chart, depending on which planet was
where when you were born. On this page, we are looking just
at your Sun sign and your Rising Sign, also called the Ascendant.
The Rising Sign is calculated from the part of the sky that
was coming over the Horizon at the moment of birth. Here,
we present a brief, lighthearted journey through the Zodiac,
looking at your Sun Sign (who you are) and your Ascendant
(how people see you). The exact dates and times when the Sun
enters each sign will vary from year to year. (By the way, have you seen the range of gorgeous Zodiac Posters?)

The Sun is in Aries
between about 21st March to 19th April.
If you were born with
the Sun in Aries, you set out with a brave heart, and
want it all to happen right now. No beating about the
bush! The world is your oyster, and no-one, but no-one,
is going to mess with you! You can organise, and lead,
and in love you're a real romantic. "Actions speak
louder than words" could be your motto.
If Aries is your Rising
Sign, when you step outside, you want to get going and
make a start on the day's projects. You'll act first
and think afterwards, and people will walk on eggshells
to avoid a fiery outburst if you're annoyed, but they'll
know that all will be smiles as soon as you've cooled
down. They'll be glad to have an Aries Ascendant in
The Sun is in Taurus
between about 20th April to 20th May.
Placid, calm and contented,
the bull in the meadow will enjoy the sun on his back
and good food to eat, and he'll tolerate annoying flies,
and even people walking through his field...just so
far...but try and make him move when he doesn't want
to and you might as well try until Doomsday. The Bull
of the Zodiac is the same. If your Sun is in Taurus,
you are peace-loving and reliable, your business will
prosper and you'll be practical and tolerant. But no-one
in their right mind should try and make you change yours.
And, just as the bull in the field will charge unexpectedly
one day, so the rare rage of a Taurean is fearful to
If Taurus was rising
when you were born, you're not going to rush out there.
You'll take your time, think before deciding anything,
and you'll want to stick with what you know. But people
will love to rely on you, and when you find your mate
you'll be passionate and protective.
The Sun is in Gemini
between about 21st May and 20th June.
So your Sun is in Gemini?
You're sure? You're not in two minds about this? OK
then, but you know you can be first one thing and then
another.You're friendly, quick-witted, and love playing
with words. You're likely to be found clowning around
or talking on the phone for hours on end. You can stay
up with friends till all hours, or you'll try to find
out about and understand the latest scientific discovery.
Then, when you're tired of that, you'll move on to the
If your Rising Sign
is Gemini, you walk out there with an urge to find out
where it's all happening, what's going on, and why.
If it's there, you want to know about it. Then you'll
tell everyone else. You're not really after a great
romance, but your friends will invite you to their parties
and know you'll keep everyone amused.
The Sun is in Cancer
between about 21st June and 22nd July.
Crabs hide in their
shells for safety, and will wave their claws at an approaching
threat, but get under their soft belly and they can
be badly hurt. Cancerians are the same, but they're
as sensitive to the feelings of others as they are to
their own, have creative imaginations, and they are
devoted to home and family. If your Sun is in Cancer,
you'll take care of ageing parents, and fight for your
children against all-comers.
To the outside world,
the Cancer Rising person can sometimes seem moody; people
can upset you without meaning to, but they are very
glad to come and have a cup of coffee in your kitchen
and pour out their troubles, knowing you'll listen and
understand. You are wary of giving your heart to someone,
but you love to have someone on whom you can depend.
The Sun is in Leo between
about 23rd July and 22nd August.
The lion is the King
of the Beasts, and Leo is King of the Zodiac. His royal
presence demands respect, and he bestows generous largesse
on all. Zodiac Lions are like the Sun itself, warm and
radiant, ready to help great and small, and if your
Sun is in Leo you will give without counting the cost...but
you do like to be thanked. No-one is kinder than a Lion,
but you can be badly hurt if people ignore or misunderstand
If Leo is your Rising
Sign, you're naturally cheerful, and walk out onto the
world's stage with a smile on your face. People are
drawn to you, heads turn, and ...let's be honest...
you love it! You're neither proud nor pushy, but sometmes
people see you like that, and that can make you feel
very lonely, yet not for long, for you soon bounce back
and are your old cheerful self. Naturally romantic,
you love to have a mate who is as loyal to you as you
are to him or her.
The Sun is in Virgo
between about 23rd August and 23rd September.
More than anything else,
if the Sun was in Virgo when you were born, you not
only want to be useful, but you truly are. You study
and learn as much as possible, and then put it all to
good practical use, because you can see what needs to
be done. You're not interested in glory for yourself,
you just use your common sense and make sure that the
job is well done. The only drawback is that you may
forget to enjoy yourself at all.
From the point of view
of the rest of the world, with Virgo rising, you are
a godsend. Others needn't bother about tidying up, because
you'll do it for them, but you do worry about things.
If someone is ill you know just how to make them comfortable,
and you probably have some vitamins on hand to raise
their resistance. In later life, people would tell you
how young you look for your age, if you ever had the
time to listen to such nonsense.
The Sun is in Libra
between about 24th September and 23rd October.
If the Sun was in Libra
when you were born, you want everything to be harmonious
and peaceful. You dislike anything rough or crude, and
like your surroundings to be balanced and tasteful .
Most of all, you want everything to be fair. You refuse
to make snap judgements. Librans are often wrongly called
indecisive, but you are merely determined to consider
a question from all sides before making a decision;
then you surprise everyone with firm action.
Whatever your Sun sign,
if your Ascendant is Libra, then relationships with
other people are going to be high on your list of priorities.
When you leave home of a morning, you set out to be
affable and to greet everyone with a smile. You love
a social gathering, and you'll bend over backwards to
keep the peace and avoid causing offence. Just sometimes,
you may need to put tact and diplomacy on one side,
and realise you can't always be all things to all men.
The Sun is in Scorpio
between about 23rd October and 21st November.
The nobility and strength
of an eagle combined with the tenacity and...er...sorry...sting
of a scorpion just about sum up your strengths and weaknesses
if you were born when the Sun was in Scorpio. When you
set your mind or heart on something, that's it. Nothing
will dissuade or distract you. You'll dig as deep as
needs be to uncover the truth of the matter, however
painful, and you''ll feel it deeply and deal with it
wisely, unless you're so hurt that you lash out. Then,
woe betide your assailant!
If you have Scorpio
as your Rising Sign, other people probably find you
intriguing, maybe even magnetic. They might see you
as mysterious, or intense, and sometimes they'll find
your penetrating insight very uncomfortable. Which is
a pity, because you can face and fight the demons others
The Sun is in Sagittarius
between about 22nd November and 21st December.
With your Sun in Sagittarius,
you are on a journey. Friendly and adventurous, your
gaze is set firmly on the horizon and beyond. You are
the original free spirit. You want to find out for yourself
if the grass is greener elsewhere, and you'll look for
the deeper meaning in it all. Popular and generous,
full of enthusiasm, you answer to yourself and no-one
If you don't exactly
ride out every morning on horseback, however much you
would like to with Sagittarius Rising, you do at least
stride out into the world with your head high and a
bounce in your step. Probably the equivalent of a red
spotted handkerchief on a pole too. You can change your
direction at a moment's notice, and just move on to
the next thing. Other people usually find you excitng
and impressive, but anyone in relationship with you
must never try to fence you in.
The Sun is in Capricorn
between about 22nd December and 19th January.
Like the mountain goat
represented in the symbol of your sign, if your Sun
is in Capricorn you aspire to the heights. But you are
going to get there by steady perseverance, not by leaps
of intuition, nor with a burst of enthusiasm. You won't
take risks, but will build your world carefully, step
by step, on your own if necessary, but with a determination
and stamina that will lead others to depend on you with
good reason, for you will always look after your own.
With Capricorn Rising,
you'll greet the morning with a sense of duty and responsibility.
You won't even think about whether you like it or not,
you will just go out and get on with the chores of the
day. You might well stay on late at work and finish
a task rather than go down to the pub, but after work
is done you will like nothing better than to go home
to those who love you, for your hard exterior hides
a deeply feeling soul.
The Sun is in Aquarius
between about 20th January and 18th February.
If the Sun was in Aquarius
when you were born, you are probably a friend to all
the world. Not only do you love mixing in parties, but
you really care about the environment and the world
at large. You'll make sure that your household recycles
everything, ...you can lose your cool without warning
if they don't...and you'll love any gadget that will
make the world a greener place. This is partly because
you love gadgets anyway; you might even invent your
own! When it comes to getting involved though, either
with people or any venture that needs commitment, you'll
fade charmingly and politely, but rather vaguely, into
Like those born with
Sagittarius Rising, if you have Aquarius as your Ascendant
you too will walk out into the world with your head
high...but in your case it is up in the clouds and your
mind is far away. Detached to the point of aloofness,
your mind is concerned with high ideals, but you prefer
to stand apart from close relationships, and you don't
like strong feelings in others or even yourself. Beware,
though! You're not that cool. You can explode without
warning or go into a huge sulk if your dignity is threatened.
The Sun is in Pisces
between about 19th February and 20th March.
Fish swim in the wide
ocean, and if your Sun is in Pisces, you love to lose
yourself in the world of dreams and imagination. Super-sensitive
yourself, you are tuned in to the needs of all around
you, and your heart goes out to anyone in trouble. You're
a natural actor, but from a love of playing the part
rather than a thirst for the limelight. Changeable and
sometimes moody, you can be a sucker for a hard luck
story, and you're not only easily deceived but you can
deceive yourself. You are more likely to sacrifice yourself
for others than any other sign.
Poet, musician or artist,
if you have Pisces as your Rising Sign you will need
some sort of outlet for your creativity. People may
find you enchantingly mysterious, and you can escape
into a world of your own when things get tough. You
gain insight through your hunches and intuition rather
than logic, may even be psychic, and so long as you
don't drift aimlessly and let others take advantage
of you, you might make a great contribution to helping
or rescuing other people.
