What are they:
The twelve signs of the zodiac are twelve different constellations that appear to move through the sky (from our vantage point on earth). Similar to the houses and planets, each sign carries with it a slew of personality traits.
How they impact you:
Each sign will directly effect at least one part of your life because the cusp of each sign falls into one of the twelve houses.
Some signs will show up only once as a point of interest in your birth chart. Other signs will show up repeatedly. As a general rule, the more a sign appears on your birth chart, the more influence it has on your life experience.
Each sign as a corresponding planet or “ruling planet”. That means that some qualities associated with that planet will also be connected to that zodiac sign.
In the following section, the magical tools and correspondences will be listed with each sign. You can refer to this list whenever you’re creating your own astrological spells.
