The Sun spends around one month in each sign before transiting to the next, and it takes approximately one year to traverse around the whole zodiac circle. Thus, a person who is born under the influence of a particular sun sign will not only share that same sun sign with all its traits but also, every time the Sun moves into another sign, that person will experience something new about themselves and their relationship with others.
For example, if you were born on January 1st 1955 at 11:00 AM, you would have been born under the sign of Cancer. This means that when the Sun comes out from behind Earth's shadow and begins to rise, you will be showing the world something about yourself that no other person on Earth can show you. Even though you will still be alive when the Sun sets again, something very different will have happened during its stay in Cancer than anything else that has ever taken place before or since your birth.
The reason for this is that each time the Sun moves into a new sign, it brings its own unique qualities to the entire zodiac circle. So, depending on what those signs are, you will either find yourself more like someone famous from history or science or you will seem to be related to them in some way.
The Earth circles the sun while revolving on its axis. The Earth takes little more than 365 days to complete its orbit around the sun. Other planets' orbital times differ. Mercury takes only 87 days to round the sun, but Jupiter takes 12 years. Saturn takes 30 years, and Uranus takes 84 years.
Earth's average distance from the sun is about 150 million km (93 million miles). At this distance, a person could walk from the sun in approximately six months. But because the planet orbits the sun every 365 days, a person would have to walk at a rate of nearly 100 kilometers per day (62 miles per day) to stay warm.
The moon also orbits the earth, but its distance varies between 71 and 74 thousand km (44-48 thousand miles). As the moon moves farther away from the earth, its angle with respect to the earth's surface gets smaller. This means that as the moon moves across the sky over one month, it will have passed through all twelve constellations.
The sun is the source of energy that allows us to live on Earth. It is also the cause of most disasters that befall humanity. Without the sun, there would be no life on Earth. It provides heat that enables water to exist in a liquid state, which is necessary for life as we know it.
A revolution is the rotation of the earth around the sun along its orbit. A "period of revolution" is the length of time it takes for a single journey around the sun. The Earth's orbit around the sun lasts 365.24 days, or one year. But because the planet orbits the sun in a plane that is not exactly perpendicular to its axis, day and night vary from point to point on the surface of the planet. At the poles, days are longest and nights are shortest; at the equator, days and nights are nearly equal in length.
At any given moment, there are 24 hours from sunrise to sunset. However, due to the tilt of the earth's axis, there are different times of day in different parts of the world. In the Arctic, winter days are shorter than summer days, so the sun does not rise as high in the sky during those months. Conversely, in the Antarctic, winter nights are longer than summer days, so the sun doesn't set as low in the sky during those months.
The amount of time it takes for the earth to make one full rotation is called a "day". The interval between two successive rotations of the earth around its own axis is called an "hour", and the total number of hours in one day is called a "night".
The sun is one AU distance from Earth, and it takes one year to complete one orbit around the sun. Jupiter is 5 years old. Therefore, it takes Jupiter about 9 years to orbit the sun.
Jupiter's mean distance from the sun is 5.2 AU. Its orbital period is 79 years. Thus, each time Jupiter passes the sun on its orbit, the planet will be 0.5 AU farther away from our star. The closer a body is to the sun, the faster it orbits; so over time Jupiter will move further away from the sun.
The speed of Jupiter is less than that of Earth's moon because it is not orbiting Earth. Instead, it is orbiting another large planet which is more massive. The fact that Jupiter is not moving toward or away from the sun shows that it is not being pulled by any other bodies except for the force of gravity.
Jupiter has eight major moons: Io, Ganymede, Europa, Grousa, Helene, Metis, Daphne, and Carme. All have been discovered by astronomers using telescopes just like those on Earth. The largest, Jupiter, can be seen with the naked eye from most parts of the world where it is visible during the day.
