As most of us know, your Star Sign is determined by the position of the sun at the time you were born. Star signs or Sun signs are the ones most people go to if they read horoscopes in magazines to see what the week has in store for them. These 12 different signs were discovered in our constellations, making up the different representations, such as Leo being represented by a Lion and so on.
Our Sun Signs change depending on the position of the sun at the time of your birth, and sun signs change towards the end of each month. For example, the sun sign Virgo starts on 23rd August and doesn’t change until 22nd September, therefore, you don’t have to be born strictly in one month to have a certain Sun/Star sign. Those born towards the end dates of signs are actually born on a cusp. If you would like to find out if you are born on a cusp, have a read of our blog all about it here and discover more!
When it comes to Moon signs, these can change every hour which means if you were born at 4 pm on your birthday, you could have a completely different Moon sign to those born at 7 pm and so on. People say that due to the Moon signs changing so often throughout the day, they feel that this is the sign they are most connected to. It’s difficult to say that people born in the Sun Sign of Virgo are all the same therefore if you are born as a Virgo with a Leo Moon sign, it might explain strong sides of your personality that aren’t very Virgo at all!
