Your zodiac is supposed to be a source of both personal revelation and universal truths. It’s unique to you based on the date of your birth but what if you don’t relate to it? Maybe you don’t see yourself in any of the supposed personality traits and characteristics. If that sounds familiar, here are a few tips to help you reconnect with your sign.

Study your Birth Chart

If you’ve never looked into the information that can be found in your birth chart, what are you waiting for? This information is more personal than a horoscope because it’s based on where the stars were located during the specific date and time of your birth. You will find a plethora of information available to you within that chart. It can help you understand more about your personality, drives, fears, parental relationships, siblings, children, and even your psychological patterns.

On the Cusp

Some people have trouble relating to their zodiac sign because they’re on the cusp of two different ones. This means your birthday falls at the very beginning or end of a zodiac season. You could be experiencing heavy influences from the sign adjacent to you. If you’re on the cusp and struggling to see yourself in your zodiac, check the sign that is the second closest to your birthday.

Read Multiple Horoscopes

Your horoscope will vary based on the source. Because each horoscope is written by a different author, it will also vary from publication to publication. If you aren’t connecting with your current horoscope, start looking for another one. Find an author that resonates with you and stick with their writings for a while. You can always search for another one if you find it lacking. Don’t let one horoscope put you in a box when there are so many to choose from. You just have to find the one that’s perfect for you.

Get a Professional Reading

Learning about your zodiac on your own is a great start. However, if you really want to learn the details, consider getting a reading from a professional. Writer Mecca Woods writes about this on her website. She states, “In a reading, a reputable astrologer would not only show you, for example, that you’re an Aries Sun, Cancer Moon, and Taurus Rising, but they would also show you how these three pieces (and more) work together to fuel your greatness and how they can sometimes trip you up.” If you’re interested in reading more about her experiences, she goes further in detail on her website.

Just as there are millions of Astrologers, you will find a variety of interpretations of your zodiac and its accompanying personality traits. Each one has their own unique interpretation. If your zodiac isn’t resonating with you, take it as a sign to dive deeper. In doing this, you will develop a stronger understanding of your zodiac.
