The Western Astrological zodiac begins with Aries, followed by Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and finally Pisces.
In the Tropical zodiac Aries begins at the Vernal equinox, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. I believe this best reflects our cultural environment and familial foundation.
The Sidereal zodiac uses fixed stars as the backdrop for the zodiac and is about 24 degrees behind the Tropical zodiac due to precession of the Earth's rotational axis. Therefore you may have a different Sun sign than you're used to and this may change your understanding of yourself. I believe this better represents a holistic perspective of yourself, especially useful after the age of 30.
The Heliocentric zodiac is a birds eye view of the solar system and so you have an Earth sign instead of a Sun sign! Here is where I believe the Soul's intent may be inferred most clearly.
