Astrology and the study of star signs are complex and transformative. Each of the twelve zodiac signs has developed their own individual characteristics.
Here are some of the unique characteristics of the different signs according to their sun. Although your sun sign doesn’t necessarily depict all your traits (you’d have to determine your birth chart for a fuller picture), this represents a portion of your character and is a great place to start if you are learning about astrology.
