Astrology is the “study of the stars.” In Western astrology, 12 constellations correspond to 12 different zodiac signs. Other cultures have similar zodiacs, like the Chinese Zodiac, based on your birth year, and the Hindu Zodiac, which is centered on the phases of the moon.

If you were born on May 30, you may share some of the same traits, strengths, and weaknesses as those also born under your sign.
