April 20 is Aries or Taurus?
I've always been confused about that

Your "zodiac sign" is only your SUN sign (just 2% of your entire astrological picture).
And Sun sign dates are only approximate.
They vary from one year to the next:
If you are born on April 20th, NO ONE can tell you what Sign YOUR Sun was in at birth .. not unless they have the year, the birth location and the exact time you were born. And those who tell you that you are one Sign or another are only showing you that they don't understand astrology.
This is why they cannot tell you which Sign your Sun is in:
Some years, Sun leaves Aries and enters Taurus SOMETIME during April 19th, and other years, Sun leaves Aries and enters Taurus SOMETIME during April 20th.
This has nothing to do with the lunar calendar. I has to do with the fact that Earth's orbit is 365 & 1/4 days long, but our calendar is only 356 full days long. So every 4 years (Leap Year) we add one day to our calendar (Feb 29) in order to catch our calendar up with Earth's actual orbit. And this is why the Sun Signs do not change on ONE particular day every year.
So if someone is born before April 19th, their Sun is in Aries.
If they are born after April 20th, their Sun has moved into Taurus.
IF they are born on EITHER April 19th or April 20th, the ONLY way to find out WHICH Sign their Sun is in, is to do up their personal unique natal chart, based on inputting their birthdata into any free astrological website:
- day, month, year
- place of birth (for longitude/latitude on Earth)
- the EXACT hour and minute of birth (check the birth certficate ... using a rounded off general time may give you an inaccurate answer).
And this applies to all the other Signs too ...
Scam writers (those who write only about "Signs") tell you that this person will be "on the cusp". But since Sun cannot be in two locations at the same time, this person is one Sun sign OR another. Although they may have one or more of their other planets in that other Sign, so they SEEM to be both Signs.
Of course, astrology uses 9 OTHER planets as well as the Sun.
And everyone has all 12 zodiac Signs in their own natal chart ... what varies is which Signs are stronger than others, and what area of life they use their Signs about.
Then there is the matter of distribution of the planets. My first husband had Sun in Scorpio, but you didn't see that in him unless you knew him really really well. He had 3 planets in Sagittarius and 3 planets in Libra, and everyone saw him as either Sagittarius or as Libra .. or as both. Sun Signs only indicate how we try to find inner self-esteem, and has nothing to do with our emotions or how we relate to others, nor even how we think or speak. Not unless we have any of those other planets also in the same sign as our Sun.Source(s): Retired professionally-certified astrologer (P.M.A.F.A. from the American Federation of Astrologers)

Get used to confusion and contradictions. Astrology is based on magic and superstition, nothing is natural about it.
According to the Tooth Fairy science, you’re programmed. By forces outside the planet, making you akin to a robot. Nobody shows that astrology works and how it works. Did your education include this fact at any time?
Science literacy and critical thinking skills is part of the curriculum. Google for astrology research results see what turns up. You’ll find nothing because no actual research has ever been done. How do you research magical beliefs? What organization would finance it?
Don’t ask for astrology details, question astrology validity.

Most astrologers would say that it would be still be Aries. However, some would say the 19th is the last day. The reason for the confusion is that once upon a time the dates were based on the lunar calendar. Hitler was born on the 20th and because of his warlike nature many astrologers would put him as an Aries. A friend of mine was also born then and considers himself an Aries.

April 20th is Taurus
If you are a Taurus you can be described as someone who is practical, stoic, determined, ambitious and materialistic.
