In Western astrology, your Zodiac sign is determined by the position of the sun at the time of your birth. Because the modern calendar, also known as the Gregorian calendar, is solar-based, the dates during which the Sun traverses each zodiac sign are fairly constant from year to year.

In some cultures, spring is considered the beginning of the new year. It’s the season when the winter thaw disappears, revealing new growth and new life. This is the time of year when the Sun again enters Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, to begin once more its journey through the twelve signs.
Summer is the time when the Sun travels highest in the sky. The days are longer and hotter. In countries North of the equator, this is when the Sun traverses Gemini, Cancer, and Leo.
In Autumn, the Sun begins to edge lower in the sky, and the days shorten. During this time the Sun traverses the constellations of Virgo and Libra.
The Winter marks the end of the year, and it is during this season that the famous Vedic festival known as Makara Sankranti takes place, when the Sun enters the sign of Capricorn.
