Well, I was born over a month premature. My mum had an emergency C-section, and I spent weeks and weeks in hospital, so it's not like I was ready to be born. If I'd been born on my 'due date', I would have had a totally different star sign... so should I look at my 'intended' date of birth to find my star sign, or my actual one?

Your actual birth date, as that is the day you came into the world.

Well, I'd think that the people that tend to believe in the power of astrology are the sorts of people that think that everything happens for a reason. If that's the case, then they'd say that you were born early for a reason (whatever that may be), and hence your "intended" birthdate is your real birthdate not your due date, and hence the astrologically relevant dates.

And I've probably just written a load of rubbish, but hey. For me, my due date was only 5 days after my real one, so no star-sign change anyway. Not that I believe in astrology lol.

if i was born on my due date i would be an aries, however you use your actual birthdate so im a taurus although some places argue i was born on what is known as a cusp meaning im in between but looking at traits im more taurus than aries.

so in answer to OPs question its your actual birthdate as purple-girl said astrologists may argue that is for a reason.

I also agree with purple-girl's theory of everything happens for a reason that could apply to most astrologists.

So it's your actual. What is your actual one out of interest?

I don't think astrology is relevant anyway...but it's probably the date you were actually born on.

It doesn't matter which star sign you are. All the horoscope readings could apply to you because they're so vague.

Just to add, the whole point of astrology is to predict what will happen in your life based on the movements of the planets at the specific time of your birth.....that being, when you entered the world.

Well you say you where over a month premature..would you have been Libra or Scorpio?

Horoscopes are rubbish I agree, but sometimes, I think star sign explanations have some merit..or that's what I like to believe anyway Blatantly don't..
Libra! So what does that mean?

I think you have to remember that there are different types of astrology, it's not just all about star signs (which i agree are vague).

Lal kitab for instance, certainly makes an interesting read as it takes your birth date, time, location and your initial to explain why certain things happen, and how you change or stop certain things from happening.

It's the date you entered the world. I'm a Virgo too, although was overdue so should have been born a Leo. I share most of the typical Virgoan traits to some extent, and none of the typical Leo traits at all, and typical Virgo and Leo characters are very different. I saw a psychic and he was also in to astrology and asked for my day, time and location of birth and told me which Virgoan traits he could tell were really strong in me, and he also said that I had parts of Leo in me and that I was supposed to be born under Leo but I'll be much older and have a cause much closer to my heart before the extrovert/firey Leo appears. Might all be a load of rubbish but it's interesting!

I think horoscopes do apply.
not the daily ones that you get in crappy magazines but the actual personalities of each horoscope.
e.g. I am a Leo and i'm really outgoing, bossy and outspoken which is apparently what Leos are supposed to be like.

How can your personality possibly be determined by where the Earth was in relation to the Sun when you were born?

There are ~500 million Leos in the world. Do they all have the same personality?
