When determining the signs of a person, astrologers consider the position of the sun at the time of birth. This is known as the first sign.

Meaning and significance of each of the zodiac signs are based on the position of the sun at that time. The next sign, or the second sign, determines the planet in which the person was born. People born under the lion, are thought to be adaptable and lead, while people born under the monkey are thought to be schemers and imaginative.

The next symbol and the meaning are based on the type of star the sun passes through at that time. The locket is always associated with the white lute, the rose with the cross and the jack of all trades with the lotus flower. The zodiac sign from which a person was born is known as the chi and determines the type of career the person chooses. The luster of the white locket means intelligence, and the rose signifies love.
