2016 has been a fascinating year. In addition to the ups and downs of the election season, several noted musicians, actors and public figures passed away this year, inspiring many people to find ways to make sense of this tumultuous time. For some people, understanding themselves is the key to finding peace and compassion.

Learning about astrology and your zodiac sign can offer insights into your nature, including why you may have certain habits, passions and opinions. Those born under the November zodiac signs, for example, will behave in and react to situations very differently than those born during the January signs. Understanding your nature may help you better navigate through the year ahead. Astrologer Debra Silverman is ready to guide you on this path.

The Signs of the Zodiac

Debra Silverman Astrology and Sagittarius Personality Traits

Debra Silverman Astrology and Sagittarius Personality Traits

Western astrology is based on 12 of the constellations that the sun passes through each year. Each sign of the zodiac is named after one of those constellations and represents different personality types. The 12 signs are divided into 4 different elements: fire, earth, air and water.

To get a fuller understanding of the personality traits associated with your astrological sign, look at both your sign and your associated element, but if you are on the cusp of two signs, then read the information for both signs. Learn more about the history of astrology.

Here are the dates associated with each zodiac sign:

Aries: March 21st to April 19th

Taurus: April 20th to May 20th

Gemini: May 21st to June 20th

Cancer: June 21st to July 22nd

Leo: July 23rd to August 22nd

Virgo: August 23rd to September 22nd

Libra: September 23rd to October 22nd

Scorpio: October 23rd to November 21st

Sagittarius: November 22nd to December 21st

Capricorn: December 22nd to January 19th

Aquarius: January 20th to February 18th

Pisces: February 19th to March 20th

These dates are adjusted according to leap year.  Every four years the cusp marker changes.  This is why it’s important to have a professional astrologer help you identify what your sun sign is, especially if you’re born on the cusp.

The four elements are consistent and are divided as below:

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

So, the November zodiac signs are Scorpio and Sagittarius.
