What Is Astrology, Exactly?

Astrology is the study of the effects of the sun, moon, and planets on our lives. It's been around for thousands of years – scholars in ancient India, Greece, Rome, and Mexico all looked to the stars – and people today turn to astrology to learn more about themselves.

Zodiac jewelry is a stylish, playful way to express your personality.

And What's a Zodiac?

The Zodiac refers to the apparent path of the sun in the sky over the course of the year, starting with the spring equinox. An astrological chart is divided into 12 equal sections (called houses), each ruled by a different sign.

The first house of the Zodiac, for example, is ruled by the sign Aries. The second house is ruled by Taurus, and so on through the twelfth house, which is ruled by Pisces.

Zodiac Profiles

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is a natural-born leader. Optimistic and energetic, Aries trusts her instincts (they rarely steer her wrong), and joyfully springs into action even when she's not yet sure of her destination. When planning a vacation, she always chooses a place she's never been before. Confident in her own voice, Aries speaks up for herself – and others.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

Ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus fills her life with as much beauty as possible – romance, music, cozy surroundings – and all these things make her heart sing. Sensitive Taurus craves comfort and security, spending her money wisely but indulging in fine food, whether it's at a chic restaurant or whipped up in her own kitchen. Deeply loyal to her friends, Taurus always has a shoulder for them to lean on.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)

Quick-witted, endlessly curious Gemini thrives on information, always wanting to know the latest news. As one of the Zodiac's social butterflies, Gemini makes friends wherever she goes and is a whiz at social media. Talkative Gemini is never at a loss for words, and immediately puts others at ease. You know the party's started when she walks into the room.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Sensitive and compassionate, Cancer is the homebody of the Zodiac, and nothing makes her happier than being surrounded by family. The "mom" of her friend group, Cancer loves taking care of others and taking care of herself, too, delighting in hot baths, massages, and afternoon naps. A wonderful cook, she'll never let you go home hungry.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Passionate, playful Leo knows that all the world's a stage – and she's a star. Known for her outgoing nature, Leo has a charisma that draws people to her. She loves hosting parties, and everyone's invited. And no one could be more generous – whatever she has is yours, any time you need it. Leo adores children, happily rocking babies and romping with toddlers (she'll always be young at heart).

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Need to get something done? Ask a Virgo to help. As the Zodiac's worker bee, Virgo is a perfectionist, regarding projects with a critical eye until she's sure that everything is just right. Friends can rely on Virgo to tell them the truth, couched in kindness. She's quite an intellectual, too, and always travels with plenty of reading material (you definitely want her in your book club).

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

If easy-going Libra has trouble making up her mind, it's only because she can see both sides of every situation. Harmony is her keyword, and she makes sure that no decision is made without everyone being heard. Libra's empathetic nature wins her a wide circle of friends who know that the door to her (beautifully decorated) house is always open. She's famous for her personal style, and has started more than one fashion trend.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

For enigmatic Scorpio, relationships aren't about quantity, but quality. She'd rather have a small group of close, deeply trusted friends than a wide circle of acquaintances she barely knows. And once Scorpio gets to know you, she's deeply loyal and caring, celebrating your successes and supporting you through challenges. You can trust her, too – Scorpio never gives away a secret.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Ruled by the planet Jupiter, Sagittarius believes that life is one big adventure, and she's hungry to experience as much as she can. She's the ideal travel buddy – flexible when plans change and eager to explore new cultures and exotic cuisines. Sagittarius has a wonderful sense of humor and always has a new story to share. She dreams big dreams, and is dynamic enough to make them all come true.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Capricorn – it's how the Zodiac spells ambition. Driven and determined to succeed, Capricorn sets her goals high and doesn't rest until she's achieved them. The secret of her success? She's a genius at time management, always keeping her planner up to date, while making sure to set aside a few hours for R&R. And speaking of time, she simply does not age, keeping her youthful look well into adulthood.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Quirky, free-spirited Aquarius marches to the beat of her own drum, and encourages others to do the same. She considers herself a citizen of Earth, and considers all humankind her family. Aquarius is tuned into current events and loves nothing more than a lively debate over the issues of the day. Friends love Aquarius for her openmindedness and sense of fun – she accepts you just the way you are.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Peace-loving Pisces, ruler of the Zodiac's twelfth house, revels in a rich inner life of dreams and imagination. Sensitive and kind, Pisces is deeply in touch with her intuition – she just seems to know things. She indulges in simple pleasures, happy to tuck herself onto the sofa and spend an afternoon streaming classic movies with endless cups of tea. And it's a rare Pisces who doesn't have a pup or kitty snuggling next to her.

What's the significance of a Zodiac sign?

Your Zodiac sign, or sun sign, is the sign the sun appeared in at the moment of your birth. Astrologers believe that a person's Zodiac sign determines their general personality and approach to life. It's just one part of your astrological profile, however – a complete horoscope will show which signs the moon and planets occupy in your chart.
