What is astrology?
Astrology is the study of the influence that cosmic objects, like the sun, moon, and planets, have on human lives. The position of these cosmic objects at the time of someone’s birth is said to shape their personality and affect their romantic relationships.
Sun signs are what people are generally referring to when they ask for someone’s star sign. It refers to where the sun was at the time of one’s birth and represents their identity.
