In this blog post, we will answer the question “What zodiac sign am I”. 

What zodiac sign am I? How to know

To answer the question “Which zodiac sign am I?” it is necessary to take into consideration a few things.

To start with, there are 12 astrological signs or zodiac signs and they are:

  • Aries
  • Taurus
  • Gemini
  • Cancer
  • Leo
  • Virgo
  • Libra
  • Scorpio
  • Sagittarius
  • Capricorn
  • Aquarius
  • Pisces

Probably you have heard about the constellations and every time you look up at the sky start looking for patterns in the stars so you can see them.

Well, Universetoday.com explains that “Over the course of several thousand years, human beings have cataloged and named them all”.

Since the beginning of history, humans have looked up the sky and admire the universe as this vast never-ending phenomenon. 

Only 12 of them are famous and continue to be a famous topic of discussion. So, we know there are 12 constellations and each represents a different month of the year. 

Some people believe that their zodiac sign has some unique and specific characteristics of their personalities represented in them.

So, the way for you to know your Zodiac sign is with your birth date. 

Each constellation has a specific sector in the sky which is said to make up 30° of the ecliptic, starting at the vernal equinox. 

Their order has been previously established. The astrological signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. 

Let’s take a look at the dates to determine your zodiac sign. Remember you needed your birthdate?

Well, this is when we use it. If your birthday falls within one of those date ranges, that’s how you know which one is your zodiac sign. 

Zodiac signs and human behavior

We have discussed how signs are supposed to represent certain characteristics and personality traits. 

Astrology is a pseudoscience, do not get it mistaken with Astronomy.

In ancient civilizations, far way back into Babylonian society, Babylonians developed their own horoscopes around 2.400 years ago and then 2100 years ago, astrology spread this way of thinking into the eastern Mediterranean.

This then became really popular in Egypt, which at that time was controlled by Greeks.

Greeks were always fascinated with the stars and the night sky.

Known Greek philosophers Empedocles and Anaxagoras were believed to be the first to theorize about the shape of the earth and the position of the earth in the galaxy.

What Zodiac Sign am I according to my birthdate?

It is pretty simple, you need to identify where your birthdate falls and that would be your zodiac sign.

Let’s say I was born June the 10th so that means I am a Gemini because my birthday falls between May 22 and June 21. 

  • Virgo: August 24 – September 22
  • Libra: September 23 – October 23
  • Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
  • Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21
  • Capricorn: December 22 – January 20
  • Aquarius: January 21 – February 18
  • Pisces: February 19 – March 20
  • Aries: March 21 – April 20

Also, this is a way to understand that humans have been evolving culturally and scientifically so for someone at the time this probably was a universal law.

Side Note: I have tried and tested various products and services to help with my anxiety and depression. See my top recommendations here, as well as a full list of all products and services our team has tested for various mental health conditions and general wellness.
