Zodiac Signs, Astrology And Astronomy Explained

Astrology interprets the influence that the Sun and Moon have while they are in a specific zodiacal sign. Astrology is based on the concept that there are 12 signs of the zodiac, measuring 30 degrees each, along the astrological circle.

However, because the astrological placement does not take into account the precession of the equinoxes (the “wobble” that the Earth’s axis describes over a 26,000-year interval), the Moon’s place according to astrology differs considerably from its physical place according to astronomy.

Astronomy is the scientific interpretation of matter in space. The Moon can wander into a few astronomical constellations that are not members of the zodiac. These constellations include: Sextans, (SXT); and Ophiuchus, the Serpent Bearer (OPH).


The Man of Many Signs

Astrologers associate the signs of the zodiac with specific parts of the body, believing that these signs have an effect on those parts. The dates listed on both sides are the Sun’s place in each astrological sign.
