Twelve Signs of the Western Astrology

In western astrology, there are 12 signs but standing for 12 periods of a year. According to natural distribution, stars are divided into many regions of different sizes, each called a constellation. Connecting all bright stars in a constellation with lines, different images in the shape of animals and objects are formed. People named each constellation according to its shape. The International Astronomical Union divided the sky into 88 constellations with precise boundaries, making every star belonging to a particular constellation.

Seen from Earth, the sun moves slowly in the Celestial Sphere and passes through constellations, forming a large circle for a year. This circle is called Ecliptic. The Ecliptic is divided into twelve equal portions (each equivalent to 30 degrees); each portion was named after the closest constellation. All these twelve portions were called Ecliptic Constellations, according to which western horoscope theories developed.

The astrologists divide a year is into 12 periods, during each period the sun being in a constellation area. So everyone has a corresponding zodiacal sign according to the period his / her birthday lies in. The 12 signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. People believe that different signs of the zodiac present different characteristics and talents.

Hi, according to your love compatibility, your compatibility with person who was born in the 1983 is much higher than another one. However, it's just a kind of reference and you need to be more careful if you want to choose your marriage partner. Good luck to you.

I'm sorry this kind of things cannot be indicated in your zodiac prediction but we can only see a general tendency of your fortune in the next year. However, it seems not so optimistic and you may suffer a downturn in career and wealth. Good luck to you!

Dear, you are suffering a hard time in your work. You may meet strong competitors and fail in the competition. Or you may have conflicts with your colleagues. But don't be upset. One advice is that keep a modest attitude in your work and make great efforts to improve your abilities. Cheer up! Good luck to you.
