So you were born under the sign Leo or Scorpio, Cancer or one of the other 12 signs?

Funny thing though, every time you read about your sign, it just seems to be a little off. Something about that description is just not quite right.

Well here is one reason why…approximately every 10 degrees a new flavor for each sign is introduced.

If you were born near the beginning of your sign, you’ll be a more pure type for that particular sign. Near the middle a new type emerges – same thing for an end of Sign birth.

You can repeat this for every planet within your birth chart. That however in my personal opinion would be going a bit too far. You’d likely end up over analyzing yourself and resurface bug-eyed and confused!

Astrology is supposed to be fun and informative – that’s harder to do, if you’re being too intense.

OK, you could branch out and include your Moon sign too, but as I said going beyond a certain point becomes more of an exercise in self-absorption than informative entertainment.

Now, if you happen to know the degree of your Moon sign apply this formula:

0-10 degrees = Beginning of Sign

11-20 degrees = Middle

21-30 degrees = End

If you have Moon in Aries at 15 degrees, you’d fall into the middle of the sign. An Aries – Leo Moon mix.

Aries Aries Aries

0-10 11-20 21-30

Aries Leo Sagittarius = Aries/Leo Mix at 15 degrees

Taurus Virgo Capricorn

Cancer Scorpio Pisces

Gemini Libra Aquarius

Here are examples of mini-interpretations for Libra

Double Libra: Sept 23 – Oct 2

This Libra type will have an even stronger desire for good manners, polite people and etiquette in general. An active social life of some sort is a must for this decante. Companions or partnerships are prominent. A sense of justice is inborn, they have little tolerance for those that don’t follow the laws of the land.

Libra – Aquarius: Oct 2 – Oct 12

This is a cooler type Libra, there is more emphasis placed on developing the intellect. Still a highly social Libra, but more independent than the other two types. A fondness for larger gatherings is present. This type may frequently find themselves involved in some type of charity. Being part of a group or club is also important for them.

Libra – Gemini: Oct 13 – Oct 23

A very chatty Libra decante indeed. Much communication with various people is recommended to keep this type happy. People skills are highly developed, making friends is easy for this one. Inventive and quick witted by nature, with a good deal of mental energy to burn. This type has a strong need for a verbal outlet.

I hope that you would agree that the 3 types of Libra are very distinct.

The remaining two types, aside from more pure type (which occurs early in the sign) – are even more distinguished.

I think it’s worthwhile to include the three types within the Sun sign, mainly because the Sun usually carries so much influence.
