Your Zodiac sign, or star sign, reflects the position of the sun when you were born causing a strong influence on your personality, character, and emotions. 
Your sign is ruled by an element: water, fire, earth, or air. Different strengths and tendencies characterize each element, and each sign is affected uniquely by its element. 

Your sign is also associated with a planet, called its ruler. This planet exerts a stronger influence over a given sign than any other planet.  Your ruling planet affects how your zodiac sign interacts with others, approaches life, and forms relationships.
