Zodiac Sign Dates and Meanings
Below is a chart of zodiac sign dates and sign attributes for quick and easy reference.
When I started my study of astrology, I found it very helpful to keep a chart like this by my side.
I'm terrible with dates and times, so having a reference chart like this one tucked in my organizer really helped me remember the astrological divisions. I hope this helps you too.
Be aware: Depending upon which source you consult, you are going to find discrepancies in zodiac sign dates.
I'm going to let Joanna Martine Woolfok answer that question, because she phrases a lot better than I can. This quote is taken directly from her book:
The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need
"...dates are not exact. Some years the sun will enter or leave a sign one or two days before or after the dates you se published. This is because the Sun does not travel at the exactsame speed year in and year out. There are slight changes in its forward motion due to the position of the earth. Also, at certain times of the year the sun travels faster than at other times (for example, the sun is traveling four minutes faster per day in early January than in early June)."
All that said, please enjoy this chart for zodiac sign dates, symbols and meanings.
