I always said I'm very mystic, always get interested in everything that has to do with astral and spatial. Astrology is a science that I find fascinating, when practiced seriously... I guess that's why I have my mind always flying to the stars.
In that mixture of religion, celestial bodies and psychology there are too many subjectives. Therefore, is so easy that anybody can set their own business and deceive a lot of people.
Zodiac name comes from the Greek word Zoon that means animal because since very old times the men were fascinated by the study of stars. Each one of the constellations to which refers each sign, also has its etymological origin.
Come, see and find your sign and its stellar characteristics. Welcome to this star trek:

There are also the Ascendant signs.
The Ascendant is the zodiacal sign that finds in the East of the horizon, in the accurate moment of the birth.
It marks personality, the true nature of each sign, our form of show ourselves to the rests and our physical aspect. It shows our inner me world, how we go learning to express to the outside to be seen and recognized, it shows us as we are in ourselves and for ourselves. It models the behaviour, our activity degree and rules over the physical health.
Also it could be mask that we wear to be seen in a certain way.
In these two pages you can calculate the Ascendent for several countries:
Fill it in to the most and don't forget to put the exact location of your birth place, including the city if possible, because the stars position at the moment of the birth ain't seen in the same way in differente places. For example, I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I'm Leo with Ascendent in Aries... but if I were born in Spain, I would be Leo with Ascendent in Taurus.
And to finish, besides the solar signs, are the moon signs.
The moon is the ruler of our emotions, our Ying energy, our deepest desires, our unconscious, so the moon sign shows the features of our feelings and how we do react by instinct to the situation presented to us.
Unlike the sun that takes 12 months to cover all the Zodiac, the moon cycle is only 28 days, so the pass of the Moon over each sign is barely 2½ days. When a tune with that cycle is established, you acquire greater fluidity and skills to adapt to changing situations.
