As people become more interested in astrology, astrological generalizations are all too common. Specific astrology signs have certain characteristics, and this can lead many to form judgments based on sign placement. However, this is not accurate in-depth astrology. Sign placements provide a general overview of the planetary energy, but they do not account for aspects that play a significant part in the expression of planetary energies.
