Zodiac sign for an individual depends on the placement of planets and the ascendant in that sign. If a person has nothing placed in a particular sign, that sign will play no active role in their personality. On the other hand a person with, for example, both the sun and moon in Cancer, will strongly display the characteristics of that sign in their make up.

Comparison Between Vedic Astrology & Western Astrology
Vedic astrology is comparably more deep, wide, and accurate than Western Astrology in execution of its function of astrology. Western Astrology is more about accentuating the psychological traits of an individual, and less or almost negligible about predicting future events. However, Vedic Astrology is also about accentuating the psychological aspects of an individual, but also scores equally effective in forecasting the events of the coming time. Also, it gives a more transparent view of an individual’s possible Karmic tendencies, i.e. whether he will engage in Paap (sins) or Punya (virtues). Vedic astrology also intimately tells about the different situations which are possibly going to arise at different points of time in a person’s life.
