In astrology, we read the degrees counterclockwise. There are 12 zodiac signs in astrology. Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are the astrological signs (there is a chart at the end of the post to identify the glyphs). Each sign has a 30 degree angle. So, if you were to draw a circle, these would be the first 12 points on it. A quarter cycle after each sign ends is where another sign starts.
To read for someone's degree in astrology, you need to know their birth date, time, and location. You can use any standard calendar to figure out when they were born - January 1 at 000 hours in New York City should get you within 5 minutes of local time. Once you have that, just divide their age by four, add a few days if necessary, and start counting back from there. For example, if someone is 21 years old, then they were born on January 1st, 1978. Divide 21 by 4 and you get 5, plus or minus two weeks. So, they could have been born on January 1st or 2nd, 1977.
Next, you need to know their location. If they were born in the United States, then you can assume they were born in the eastern time zone (EST), which includes all states except Alaska and Hawaii.
The yearly passage of the sun across our sky defines it. The Zodiac, or the 12 signs of the zodiac stated in a horoscope, is intimately related to how the Earth travels through the skies. The signs are drawn from the constellations that outline the journey the sun seems to take over the course of a year. These constellations were important to ancient peoples who used them to map out the future.
The position of the planets at birth determines your zodiac sign. Using this information, astronomers can estimate what time of year it is where you were born and what planet is positioned closest to the sun at that time of year. They can also look at the history of the solar system to see which stars belong to which animals.
For example, if you were born in January, you would be a Scorpio. This means that you have two eyes with which you see using darkness to hide yourself, a sharp stinger to warn others away from you, and a desire for intimate relationships only.
Your zodiac sign also tells us about our personality traits, such as whether we are active people who like to get involved in many projects at once or quiet individuals who prefer to think things through before acting. It also informs us about our interests and what kind of people we tend to get along with. The zodiac has helped humans for thousands of years understand these kinds of things about ourselves and our world.
Air-Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Spring (wet to hot). Summer (hot and dry): Aries, Leo, Sagittarius. Autumn (cold and dry): Earth-Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn. Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer: Water-Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces-Winter (cold turning wet).
Earth has the same relationship to water as Gemini does; both are air signs that reflect the element of fire. This means that Earth is warm and dry, with most of its action taking place on land. Although it is covered in water, most of Earth's surface is made up of deserts or other arid areas. The only time when there is more water than judgment is in a hurricane or other natural disaster. Even then, most of it is gone after the storm has passed.
Geminis are known for their dual nature, being able to appear both sensitive and caring, yet also being impulsive and unreliable. This reflects the dual nature of Earth, which is stable but can be affected by external forces such as wars or natural disasters.
Aquarians are known for their intellectual ability and their desire to learn new things. They are the scholars of the zodiac, so it isn't surprising that they are also associated with Earth, which provides knowledge through science.
Leos are proud and opinionated, which is why they are associated with Fire, the element that Earth opposes.
According to the traditional Western zodiac, Leo is connected with the time between July 23 and August 22, and the sign spans the 120th to 150th degree of celestial longitude. Modern scientists place Leo's birth around July 2 or 3.
Leo was the second of three children born to Marie Louise Abbé and Joseph Bonaparte. The family lived at first in Paris, then later in Saint-Cloud near Paris when Joseph was appointed governor of France's new territory of Louisiana. In 1807, the family moved again, this time to a large estate called Elisa near Marseille, where Joseph was given charge of French forces in southern Italy. Young Leo spent his early years in Italy, where his father was promoted to the rank of general. He returned to France when he was still a child and went back to America for a third time in 1814, when his father was made president of the United States. They returned to Europe a few months later when Napoleon was exiled to Elba. After the death of his father in April 1821, young Leo took over the leadership of the army; but since he was only twenty-one years old, his mother Marie Louise acted as regent until he came of age two years later.
Leo II was one of the most loved monarchs in French history.
The house method divides each house in the horoscope into 30-degree pieces. Every house begins at the same degree in the next sign as the ascendant did. The ascendant and its degree denote the beginning of the first house. The 7th house, of course, is drawn 180 degrees opposite the ascendant. Thus, the 7th house begins at the same degree as the descendant did. The houses continue in this way, with each successive house beginning at a point directly opposite the one just completed.
The houses are like branches on a tree or veins in the body. They can be thought of as bundles of energy that represent different parts of our personality. Just as the blood flows through veins instead of rivers between the organs, so too these energies flow through the body. Each part of your personality is represented by a specific house, and they all interact with each other because they're connected by the zodiac. For example, the 4th house represents issues related to security, which includes physical safety but also emotional security. If you have problems with anxiety or fear, this part of your personality may be affected.
The 1st house is called "the mansion" because it's like the main entrance to a large house or apartment building. It represents the family name and any inherited wealth. This house also contains the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars - the major planets.

Traditional Astrology is the oldest form of astrology and it works on the principle that everything in the universe has an effect on humanity, therefore the movements of the planets along with other bodies in the solar system influence how people think and act, and thus their chances of success in life. Traditional Astrologers concentrate on interpreting the patterns formed by these influences in the human natal chart, which shows every aspect of a person's birth information, such as time and place of birth, gender, physical characteristics, family history, and even certain behaviors that may not be apparent from just looking at a person. By studying a person's birth chart, we can see what signs of the zodiac are present or absent, what planets are rising or setting, what angles the planets are positioned in relative to one another, and much more. This allows us to gain valuable insights into that person's traits and tendencies, and use this information to guide them toward greater happiness and success in life.
Natal Astrology is the study of a person's exact birth chart, which covers each and every part of their identity.
