Your sun sign is determined by the day and month of your birth and dictates your zodiac personality. Taking each of the twelve signs in turn, Linda Goodman explains the importance of the sun in astrology. She explains the charactersitics of each sign and how these can be used to really get to know the men, women, children, bosses and employees in your life.
Before 1968, astrology as we know it had a very limited following in the United States and around the world. It was the 1968 publication of Linda Goodman's Sun Signs that changed that forever, bringing metaphysical consciousness to millions of readers around the world for the first time. Newspapers began running astrology columns, and Goodman herself contributed to the larger mass circulation women's magazines. An increasing number of people knew their sign and how to interpret the signs of others, introducing the study of astrological tendencies as we now know it.
