The stars and planets have always inspired a sense of wonder.Astrology is the study of patterns and relationships — of planets in motion, our birth chart, synastry with others, the make-up of elements — and using that knowledge as a tool to find meaning.
According to astrology, a person's sign is determined by the position of the Sun on the date they were born. Namely, a person is born under the sign of Virgo if the
constellation Virgo was behind the Sun at the time of birth.

Astrology History :-
Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and the Indians, Chinese,
and Maya developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial
observations. In the West, astrology most often consists of a system of horoscopes
purporting to explain aspects of a person's personality and predict future events in
their life based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other celestial objects at the
time of their birth. The majority of professional astrologers rely on such systems.
The main texts upon which classical Indian astrology is based are early medieval
compilations, notably the B?hat Parasara Horasastra, and Saravali by Kalya?avarma.
