Hey, everyone, it’s TheBuZzyBrain and today we’re going to talk about the Zodiac and Zodiac Signs.
So you’ve heard of zodiac signs, obviously but, what is the Zodiac itself? Like what actually even is it?
What is Zodiac?
Before we talk about what the Zodiac is we have to talk about what the ecliptic is? The ecliptic is the apparent path of the Sun around the Earth. So we know that the earth actually travels around the sun. But because it looks like we’re sitting still, from our vantage point here, actually, on the surface of Earth, it looks like the sun goes around us, but it’s not just the sun that kind of moves around this area, all of the other planets follow the sun around this area of the sky. And this is called the ecliptic. So the sun sets the line of the ecliptic, and the other planets follow along this same line very closely. So it’s sort of this area of heightened activity in the sky.
Zodiac is Actually A Belt
So the reason the ecliptic is important is that the Zodiac is an imaginary band that follows the ecliptic around Earth, and it overlaps with 13 of the constellations the Zodiac is divided into 12 equal 30 degrees segments and those are the Zodiac signs that you’re familiar with. Now it’s important to note that they are named after the constellations that they are near to, but constellations and zodiac signs are not in any way the same thing. constellations are named groups of groups of stars and zodiac signs are 30-degree divisions of the ecliptic.
How to Know Your Zodiac Sign
How exactly do we know what our zodiac sign is? And how exactly do we find out what is the method behind all of this?
All right, so the first thing is that our entire horoscope belt is divided into 12 equal parts and each part represents one zodiac sign right from Aries to Pisces, and each of these 12 zodiac signs approximately covers a time period of one month and the reason behind this is that sun. You know, because of which these are known as sun signs or zodiac signs. Sits in one Zodiac for approximately a month and then shifts to the next one, and some shifts in the exact order that we know the zodiac signs as from Aries, to Taurus to Gemini to cancer to Leo, and like this goes to Pisces and then back to Aries in another month.

Zodiac Signs by Date and Months
So this is how the transition is happening and the dates that the 12 zodiac signs cover across the entire year are such
- Aries: March 21 to April 20 because the sun at this point of time is sitting in Aries or in the first house of the horoscope.
- Taurus: April 21 to May 20 because the sun now sits in the second house of the horoscope.
- Gemini: May 21 to June 20 because the sun has now moved over to the third house of the horoscope or in the sign of Gemini.
- Cancer: June 21 to July 21.
- Leo: July 22 to August 22.
- Now, Virgo: August 23 to September 21.

- Scorpio: October 24 – November 22.
- Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21.

The Concept Of Cars in Zodiac Signs
Now cars are the time period when the sun leaves one zodiac sign and starts to enter the other one at the end of OneNote. Now if a person is born during this period of time he gets a reflection of both the zodiac signs at either side of the cusp in his personality because this is a time period when the sun is in the transition from one zodiac sign to the other one. So, you know he gets the traits of both of them.
Now, for example, they can instance if a person is born around the 19th or 20th of November, then he would be a Scorpio but he would be moving away from a Scorpio and because the sun is in transition, and is entering in the sign of Sagittarius. So he would have a lot of reflection of a Sagittarius person as well in his personality. So, he would have mixed traits of a Scorpio as well as Sagittarius.
Which Of The Zodiac Signs System to Follow
Now, the second and one of the more important things that cause confusion in a lot of people’s mind is that which system to follow, because there are a lot of concepts out there like the western astrology, Indian astrology, sun sign system, Moon sign system, and you know, devising the zodiac sign on the basis of a person’s name system.
You might find a lot of different concepts here and there and a lot of different ways to find the same thing. Although there are little differences, you’re in there in these theories, but the base of all these concepts is wanting the same thing. So you know, you can take it as different theorems and different formulas to solve the same mathematical problem, and it only depends on the practitioner’s accuracy while he uses one method.
I might be completely wrong, and it is open to discussion. There might be other theories and formulas that one can use to come out and more accurate decision and there might be people more accurate than me. But you know, this is what I have been using in all my readings and all my analysis, and this is what I found correct and falling very, very accurate, but a majority of the charts that I’ve studied.
