Full Answer

Each of the 12 signs of the western zodiac corresponds to a particular constellation of stars. An individual's zodiac sign depends on his date of birth. The constellation that is located closest to the sun at the time of year when a person was born is that person's sign, according to astrology experts. For example, astrology teaches that the Virgo sign rules people who were born between August 23rd and September 22nd. People born between September 23rd and October 22nd fall under the Libra sign. The Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces signs rule the months from late autumn through early spring.

Astrologists believe that the zodiac sign under which a person is born influences his personality traits. For example, astrologists associate the sign Taurus with stubbornness and introversion. There are also symbols, elements and body parts linked to each sign. Taurus's symbol is a bull. Taurus' element is Earth, and its relevant body parts are the neck and throat.
