In episode 177, Chris Brennan and Austin Coppock discuss a recent issue in the astrological community about zodiac bumps and what it means when a person is born on a bump.
Sun sign astrology has become popular over the past century, and everyone knows its “sign,” which is the zodiac sign the sun was in on the day it was born.
There is a problem, however, because the sun changes to a new sign approximately every 30 days and the dates given for solar signs are only approximate and can vary near the beginning and end of the signs.
This, of course, creates a problem when someone is born near one of the character boundaries and wonders if they are one or the other.
In popular astrology it is said that such individuals are “born on a point”, where point here essentially means border, border, dividing line or space.
So this phenomenon mainly arises from a problem in popular astrology where there is confusion about sun sign data that is close to the boundaries of the signs.
In the past few decades, however, this confusion has turned into something else, and it is becoming more and more common in popular astrology to treat character humps as areas where the meanings of two signs overlap or mix with each other rather than the apex being very different and strict limit.
While this problem initially seems to have arisen due to confusion about the dates of the sun signs, it is compounded by the fact that some people born near a peak actually report feeling like both signs or features of both Have characters. Then the question arises why this is so.
The most obvious answer astrologers usually give is that if your sun is in one sign, there is a good chance that Venus and Mercury are in the adjacent sign.
But is that all or is there more to hump than that? Is there a traditional or practical validation of character humps that have more qualitative significance than just acting as strict boundaries?
These are the questions we wanted to explore in this episode.
