What are 12 Zodiac signs?

As an astrologer on TikTok, I often get asked questions such as ‘How do I know my zodiac sign?‘; ‘What does my zodiac sign mean?‘ Well, I am going to answer all these questions in this article.

You have probably wondered why everyone is psyched about zodiac signs and what their significance is. Simply put, a zodiac sign is the position of the sun at the time of your birth. Astrology believes that your personality can be predicted based on your star sign.

Each sign of the zodiac is different and unique in its own way and natives of these signs are believed to share similar traits and personalities.

When you look up your zodiac sign, you will be able to see your sign’s horoscope, traits, birthstones, and compatibility.

While reading about your zodiac sign, you will also notice words like water sign, earth sign etc. These are called the elements of the zodiac and they are used to categorize the signs based on shared characteristics, with water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) associated with emotions and intuition, earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) associated with practicality and stability, air signs (Gemini, Libra) with intellect and communication, and fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) with passion and energy.

Cancers are moody most of the time. This can be due to their connection with the moon phases.
