    Astrological Signs and Zodiac Resources


      Astrological signs represent the diagrams of twelve equal segments of the zodiac (the imaginary area in the sky in which the sun, moon and stars appear to lie) - each 30 degrees long. According to astrology, the twelve signs represent twelve basic personality types and can influence our lives. The signs depend on birth date.
