Popular or Sun sign astrology is what you read about in your daily newspaper. It is based on the assumption that everyone born under the same sign will behave in the same manner. This, of course, is not true, but does provide entertainment to millions and even hits the mark from time to time. Real astrology goes far beyond Sun signs and is based on the time, date and place of birth of an individual. The natal chart that is produced includes the Sun, Moon, planets, signs, houses and aspects (angles between the planets). The details found in such a chart reflect our unique differences and are the basis for any serious astrological work.
