What Exactly is My Sun Sign?
Sun Sign is the sign of the Zodiac that the Sun occupied
the moment you were born. For example, the Sun was in Gemini on
June 9th so if you were born on June 9th then your Sun Sign is Gemini.
When someone at a party asks "What's your sign?" this
is what he is asking about. He's also trapped in a 70's time warp

the heading we look under when we look at our "horoscope"
in the paper. A few people (about one in thirty) are born on The
Cusp or edge of two signs. If you were born on the Cusp then
you have to check exactly where the Sun was at the moment of your
birth to truly determine which of the two signs will dominate your
personality. The Sun moves from one sign to the next with exact
precision but the change from one sign to the next does not occur
at the same time every year, In fact, it may not occur on the same
date! So if you were born on March 20, 1979 you would be an Aries
BUT if you were born on March 20, 1978 you would be a Pisces!
There are three ways to find out which you are.
One way is to analyze your personality and see which of the two
signs you most resemble. The other is to consult a book called an
Ephemeris which is a big thick book of astrological data
that gives the position of each of the planets for all the times
in each year (now you know why it's big and thick) Oh, and the third
way to find out is to have an Astrologer cast a BIRTH CHART
