I’m a Pisces and Pisces and Cancers are supposed to be compatible with each other. Does this mean that I could marry and be happy with any Cancer? Of course it doesn’t. When I say that my sign is Pisces, that really means that my sun sign is Pisces. I will later explain that you have a sign for every planet, every planet is in a house, and their location is also important. All of these things contribute to your personality. This helps explain why every Cancer is not the same.
This book is going to concentrate on “Your Sign” or more properly “Your Sun Sign”. I’m concentrating on the sun sign for a few reasons. The biggest reason is because it is the main one that I studied. Why did I pick the sun sign to study? The primary reason is because it is easy to figure out someone’s sun sign. The sun changes sign on a pretty regular schedule and it is well documented. For example, if I wanted to know someone’s sign, I could get their birth date and look up their sign in almost any newspaper’s astrology section. The other planets do not change signs on the same day from year to year and they are not as well documented.
Another reason for concentrating on the sun is because it has the greatest effect on Earth so it probably influences the personality the most. Both of these reasons are probably why most people concentrate on the sun sign in astrology. There are also a large number of books on the sun sign, so finding reference material is very easy.
