        FOR ENLIGHTENING PURPOSES

    The Sign of the Sun is the key to our true self, representing the first impressions of others, and also characterizing and describing our physical appearance of the naked body.
    However, our Asendant (or rising sign) is not the only determining factor. The Decanates (or thirds of each sign) also plays a vital role as does the Cusp (or point at which a particular sign begins.) Also the Aspects (or how one planet appears towards another) is vital to the chart.
    Then there are the Planets to tend too, which include the Moon and Sun in the counting, but not the Earth, for that represents our own selves in Astrology. There are also the Twelve Houses of your individual personality influenced by the planets passing through at the time of calculation.
    Only after becoming aware of these intricacies are you ready to begin casting either your natal (or birth chart) or your solar (or sun chart) which requires a circle divided into twelve equal sectors of 30 degrees.
    Also you should take into consideration that the zodiac does not coincide with the real, physical location of the stellar constellations, but is actually being skewed almost one full month out of alignment. Classical Astrology holds that this does not matter, for the zodiacal signs are but symbolic labels for describing certain periods of time. Hence the true concept of astrology can better be seen as a cosmic clock which marks the passage of a certain time sequence.
    So you see, 'mearly' knowing your Sign is far more complex than one may first think, and way too much info for me to transpose in its entirety here. Athough I can help shed some light upon the subject, and thus informing one well enough so as to hopfully pique curiosities……
