If you are like most people, you probably think your true astrology sign is one of the 12 signs of the Western Zodiac, but what about those other 12 signs? The Eastern Zodiac, most popularly used in Chinese Astrology, also contains 12 different zodiac signs. So which is your TRUE astrology sign? Do you choose Western or Eastern based on where you were born? Where your parents were born? What you feel most affiliated with? Or perhaps it depends on how often you go to Chinese restaurants and find your sign on the menu?

The truth about astrology is that there are many astrological aspects that make up the true You. When we talk about a person's "zodiac sign" we are usually talking (here in the Western world anyway) about what is called the Tropical Zodiac. You may have heard some news about a 13th zodiac sign called "Ophiuchus", but this only applies to a lesser used astrological system called Sidereal Astrology. I won't get into the confusing details. The purpose of this article is to explain how to understand which signs apply to you and which do not.

In Primal Astrology, your true astrology sign is an equal combination of both Eastern and Western astrology. In the West, your "zodiac sign" is considered your Sun sign, or where the sun was positioned among the stars the day you were born. Sun signs change approximately once per month. In the East, your "zodiac sign" is based on the Lunar calendar, which changes approximately once per year. If you do the math you can see that within a 12 year time span there are 144 (12 x 12) different combinations of Western and Eastern zodiac, with no conflicting possibilities. I figured it was high time someone took them both into account.

The 144 unique zodiac signs in Primal Astrology combine both core signs and use an animal representation to explain the internal instinctive nature of each individual. The whole purpose of astrology is to understand who we are meant to be and why we are here, with the idea that certain aspects of our life are predestined, or preplanned as a way of helping guide us to the lessons we need to learn in this lifetime. If you have ever found yourself wondering what life is for or what you should be doing with your life, Primal Astrology can provide some very significant clues, starting with your true astrology sign, also called your "Animal Spirit".

Your "Animal Spirit", or Primal Zodiac sign, is the beginning of understanding both the conscious (Sun sign) and subconscious (Lunar sign) elements that have primed you to think and behave a certain way. Without knowing our purpose, though, or at least having key research in our hands to find our purpose, it can still be difficult to understand why we are the way we are, which is always there to benefit us, not hinder us inappropriately. For those who are brave enough to search inward, I recommend the Life Path report, which includes Lunar Nodes - a critical aspect in understanding your destiny. You can find a free example of the Life Path report here.
