Three Type Of Signs In Astrology

Although all of us pay a lot of attention to the sun sign, there are other two signs as well. Sun sign is the zodiac sign. But apart from that, we have a moon sign and a rising sign. The sun sign determines our personality while as the moon sign represents our emotional side.

Moon Affects A Human Body In The Same Way It Affects The Ocean

We all know that the moon causes waves in the oceans. Similarly, the astrologers believe that the moon causes waves in our body. In simpler terms, the moon causes our moods to change. Believers say that there is a science behind it as our body also contains 70% of water. And statistics also support this claim. Because statistics say that most assaults in America occur during a full moon. Having said that, it can’t be used as an excuse. And many people don’t agree with this theory.

Astrology Had Already Predicted Hitler’s Future

An astrologer, named Frau Elsbeth Ebertin, predicted Hitler’s rise to power in 1924. What she said about Hitler, after looking at his birth chart, came true. Moreover, many historians say that Hitler too believed in astrological studies. In fact, it is seen that a lot of world leaders throughout years, have believed in this philosophy.

Your Sun Sign Might Be Different Than What You Believe

This one is a little bit tricky. We all determine our zodiac sign based on our birthday. But in reality, it is determined by the position of Sun at the day and time of your birth. So, while your birthday has a large role to play, but at times the position of Sun changes. Our Earth wobbles on its axis which changes the position in which the Sun and the planets align at the time of your birth.

Therefore, it is possible that your actual sun sign isn’t what you believe it to be. But many astrologers believe that you don’t need to worry about it. However, there isn’t consensus on whether to change your zodiac sign or not.
