significance, and can reveal many paths and opportunities that help you evolve in life.
It doesn’t matter if you’re reading this on your birthday, or if your birthday is coming up or remains distant. You’ll still be able to put the information you discover about this magic date to very good use.
Each astrological sign is linked to a planetary constellation, which emits positive vibrations for the people born under its influence. That energy can become a great source of progress.
The stellar constellation that corresponds to each astrological sign has a powerful
influence on the people born under it.
A stellar constellation is a collection of stars visible to the naked eye at night. Joining some of the stars with imaginary lines produces geometric figures which have lent their names to the different signs of the Zodiac.
Western astrology is largely based on knowledge dating back to the ancient Babylonians, as well as to the Egyptians during the time of the pharaohs.
The Zodiac as we know it today is composed of twelve astrological signs, and comes to us from the ancient Greeks.
The word ‘‘Zodiac’’ is derived from the Greek word ‘zodiakos,’ which means circle of
The Zodiac originally had thirteen constellations, including one called Ophiucus (the Snake), but it was removed in the Vth Century B.C.
The modification was made so the astrological zodiac could correspond to the civil calendar, with its 12 months in a year, even though astrological signs don’t start at the beginning of each month.
The dates separating the signs of the Zodiac were determined in accordance with the Sun’s ecliptic, the name given to the Sun’s yearly trajectory as observed from Earth.
The first date in an astrological sign indicates when the Sun enters that sign’s corresponding constellation. The second date indicates when it leaves. If we look at the first sign of the Zodiac – Aries – the Sun enters the constellation of Aries on March 21st, which is the spring equinox, and leaves on the 19th of April.
On April 20th, the Sun enters the constellation of Taurus, which it then leaves on May 20th. On May 21st the Sun enters Gemini, and so on, throughout the entire year.
To take full advantage of the positive influences the constellation linked to your birth sign can offer you, take a look at the astrological dates at the end of this section.
You benefit naturally from the astral influences generated by your constellation throughout the duration of your sign, and especially on your date of birth.
Say you were born on May 18th, which makes you a Taurus. What that means is that you will benefit from the positive energy generated by the Taurus constellation between April 20th and May 20th.
In concrete terms, that means the stars belonging to the constellation Taurus will favor you between April 20th and May 20th, and will have their strongest impact on you on your birthday, May 18th.
How To Advantage of Your Birth Date
To weigh the odds in your favor when trying to attain an important goal, you mustn’t wait for the period of your astrological sign to begin. You need to work at it all year long.
However, if you make a concerted effort to achieve your objective during the period that corresponds to your birth sign, you’ll have an even better chance of succeeding, especially on or near your birthday.
