The 3 Basic Groups Used in Astrology

  1. The Planets are the energy sources with specific meanings and rule over certain things and events in the physical world.
  2. The Signs are the personality and strength of the planets. Each planet is in a sign.
  3. The Houses are the divisions of the time and space of a chart. Each house will govern over a certain area of life.

Today we’ll look at the Signs

The signs are the constellations in the zodiacal band that surrounds the earth. There are twelve signs in this band, of 30 degrees each, equaling the total of 360 degrees. Each of the twelve segments or constellations is comprised of stars that name and give qualities to that sign. For example, the fixed star Regulus in the constellation of Leo is related to kings, so Leo has leadership qualities.
