Vedic astrology then corrects this contradiction between the signs of the Western and Vedic sun and the positions of each Zodiac, using mathematical modifications. The table below shows the approximate dates of the Vive sun signs as of 2020-2021: 2020.
True sidereal astrology uses the actual size, and location, of the constellations in the sky. Below are the true sidereal astrology Sun Sign dates.
- 'Astrology a science or myth', New Delhi, Atlasntic Publishers 2005 - highlighting how every principle like sign lord, aspect, friendship-enmity, exalted-debilitated, Mool trikon, dasha, Rahu-Ketu, etc. Were framed on the basis of the ancient concept that Sun is nearer than the Moon from the Earth, etc.

- Jun 17, 2019 The Sun in Vedic astrology and the season cycle. The Sun takes one year to complete its zodiac cycle. In every zodiac sign, it says for a month. The Sun’s transit from Capricorn to Gemini is Uttarayan (Northward Movement) and transit from Cancer to Sagittarius is Dakshinayan (Southward Movement).
You might notice a difference between this and your more popular western Sun Sign. This is because popular Western astrology uses a system called tropical astrology which does not use the real location of the constellations. It instead is based on the seasons of the Earth, and does not reflect their true locations. In fact, the two systems are almost a full sign apart. The constellations are moving relative to the rotation of the Earth around the Sun. This is known as the precession of the equinoxes. Sidereal astrology accounts for precession.
If you come from a Vedic astrology background you might notice a difference in your Sign as well. This is because true sidereal astrology uses not only the real location of the constellations, but also their actual size. Vedic astrologers use an even thirty degrees for each of the constellations. However, the constellations vary in size. Leo, for example, is a very large constellation, while Cancer is very small. True sidereal astrology accounts for the varying sizes of the constellations, as well as their true locations.
To see the true sidereal astrology dates of your Sun Sign see the list below. Keep in mind these dates are based on the midpoints between constellations, so if your birth date is withing three days of another sign consider yourself a blend of both signs.
