Zodiac Signs - Characteristics and Personality Traits

What is a Zodiac Sign (Horoscope Sign)?

Your zodiac sign shows the constellation in which the Sun was located at the time of your birth. Each zodiac Sign is symbolized by an animal (Fish, Cancer, Scorpio, ...) or a mythical figure (Capricorn, Sagittarius, Aquarius ...), which express the nature of this sign.

There are 12 signs in the Zodiac belt. This belt is encircling the Earth. The Sun travels in this Zodiac belt slowly around our planet Earth during the whole year and it is spending one month in each sign.
