What's Your Sign?

Such a cliche pick up line - especially if you were dating back in the 70's like I was. Nowadays it seems like knowledge of astrology is an all or nothing thing. People seem to really be interested in it or know nothing about it - not even their sun sign. So, for those of you who are interested, here's a breakdown by date of when the sun signs change over the course of a year. Keep in mind that if you were born on a cusp, meaning the day that the signs changed, it's important to know your exact time of birth to determine what your sun sign really is. For example, my birthday falls on the 23rd of October which is a cusp. Had I been born 2 hours earlier, I would have been a Libra, but based on my birth time, I am a Scorpio by 2 degrees!

Anway, here's the sun signs with their corresponding date ranges:

Aries (21 March-20 April)
Taurus (21 April-21 May)
Gemini (22 May-21 June)
Cancer (22 June-22 July)
Leo (23 July-22 August)
Virgo (23 August-21 September)
Libra (22 September-22 October)
Scorpio (23 October-21 November)
Sagittarius (22 November-21 December)
Capricorn (22 December-20 January)
Aquarius (21 January-19 February)
Pisces (20 February-20 March)

What most people don't realize when asking "what's your sign" is that our outward personna is ruled by our ascendant or rising sign. This is a great website to go to if you're looking for a free natal (birth) chart to find out all of the signs that influence you!

Gemstones also have been associated with the signs of the Zodiac, taking on their positive attributes. For instance, Ametrine is associated with the sign of Libra and is believed to help its wearer/user achieve equilibrium in life. For more on what stones are assigned to what signs, browse through some of the items in my Etsy shop. These are just a few that have natural gemstones with astrological connections!

Whatever your sign, I hope you have a beautiful Saturday filled with love and luck and all the other things that bring you joy in life!
