What's Your Sign?

I was born under the sun sign Aquarius, but today my sun sign is Aries.

The positions of the stars and constellations were different when the ancient astrologers set up their astrological systems long ago. We now know that people are affected not just by the sun, moon and 12 planets of the zodiac, but by much more, new discoveries made every day.

Most astrological systems have some merit but are also flawed. If you don't have good psychic abilities to interpret a person's chart, you are going to make mistakes in predictions about their future, or glimpses into their past (parallel) lives.
