Which (zodiac) sign are you?

"Stjernetegn" in English is zodiac sign, but it seems somewhat inflexible and stiff. An alternative approach could be to leave the zodiac out! Depending on the context, level of formality, "which" could be "what"!

Good luck

star sign

I know that it sounds very simple and translated directly from the Danish, nevertheless that is what is often used at least in the UK, sign is commonly used as well.
