Who's your (Sun or "birth") sign?
If you follow this wheel (going clockwise from the top, you can see the natural pattern of the Zodiac as well as the glyph (symbol) that corresponds to your birth date.
(Yes, I know some people are born right on the split between signs; they're "born on the cusp." I'll discuss that in a different post. They tend to follow both the end-and-beginning of each sign...and they really do "start-and-stop" just a few days before-and-after the actual split that's credited to each sign's date.)
Each sign has its own characteristics (element of existence and quality) too, in a pattern, starting with Aries. They follow a rotation of Fire, Earth, Air, and Water in their qualities. Each quality is a response to Sensory Needs and Behaviors. It's like being on a varied group of teams, each with its own playing identity and scheme of responses to Life.
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
