In traditional astrology, the sun signs represent the location of the sun at the time of a person's birth. The sun sign indicates the person's basic personality and willpower and sets the general direction of the person's life. Astrologers also note moon signs, which are determined by the moon's position relative to the zodiac signs at the time of a person's birth. Moon signs are related to emotions, instinct, habits and inner needs.
