Every 30 degrees, the earth’s 360-degree orbit around the sun is divided into 12 equal portions, or zodiac signs. According to astrology, information about your personality, physical characteristics, and interpersonal interactions can be gleaned from the angles of the stars, planets, and sun at the time of your birth. Horary astrology encompasses this view. Typically, when we talk about our zodiac sign, we mean our sun sign. People who identify as having a Sagittarius sun, Capricorn moon, and an Aries rising sign may remark things like, “What the heck are you on? This indicates that they are aware of their entire birth chart.
The twelve signs from Aries to Pisces are collectively referred to as the zodiac. Every planet has a corresponding zodiac sign.
The 12 horoscopes are what?
Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are the 12 zodiac signs, listed in order. Greek texts from the Middle Ages have a symbol for each sign of the zodiac. Let’s examine the zodiac signs, constellations, and characteristics in more detail.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The constellation of the ram serves as a representation for Aries, the first of the twelve zodiac signs. You are viewed as being active, ambitious, and competitive if you were born under this sign. The “fire” element is to blame for Aries’ predisposition to be impetuous and direct as well as their quickness and leadership abilities.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The constellation Taurus symbolizes Taurus, the second of the Zodiac’s twelve signs. You are seen as being dedicated, dependable, focused, and creative if you were born under this sign. Tauruses are renowned for their wit, dependability, and stubbornness (the sign is a bull, after all). Tauruses are notorious for questioning authority and seeking pleasure.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The constellation Gemini, which features Castor and Pollux, the Dioscurithe twins, serves as the symbol for Gemini, the third of the Zodiac’s twelve signs. You are seen as being enthusiastic, expressive, intellectual, and playful if you were born under this sign. Although they have a reputation for being contradictory, Gemini are recognized for their extroverted personalities and wide range of interests.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The constellation Cancer, which is most frequently pictured as a crab, is the zodiac sign for Cancer, the fourth of the twelve signs. If you were born under this sign, you are regarded as being brave, sympathetic, caring, and perceptive. Cancers are renowned for their ability to provide care and for having a propensity for being remote and passive-aggressive.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
The constellation of the lion serves as the symbol for Leo, the fifth of the Zodiac’s twelve signs. If you were born under this sign, people would describe you as fiery, lively, and outgoing. Leos are renowned for their warmth and high self-esteem, although they can occasionally be arrogant or envious.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
The maiden constellation serves as the symbol for Virgo, the sixth of the Zodiac’s twelve signs. You are seen as being practical, analytical, and sophisticated if you were born under this sign. Virgos are renowned for their thoughtfulness and attention to detail, but they can also have a propensity for shyness and unreasonably high expectations for both themselves and their loved ones.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
The lone inanimate constellation, the scales, stands in for Libra, the seventh of the Zodiac’s twelve signs. If you were born under this sign, people view you as diplomatic, fair-minded, and balanced. Although Libras are renowned for their generosity and amiability, they can occasionally be overly practical and insecure.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio is the eighth of the Zodiac’s twelve signs and is symbolized by the scorpion constellation. If you were born under this sign, people view you as dependable, resourceful, and determined. Scorpios are renowned for their courage and pioneering spirit, yet they may also come off as prickly and distant to outsiders.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
The ninth of the Zodiac’s twelve signs, Sagittarius, is symbolized by the constellation of the Archer. If you were born under this sign, you are regarded as cheerful, self-reliant, and intelligent. Sagittariuses are renowned for being charming and giving, although they can occasionally have a propensity to be haughty and overly direct.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Tenth among the zodiac’s twelve signs, Capricorn is symbolized by the sea goat constellation. If you were born under this sign, you are regarded as patient, diligent, and disciplined. Although Capricorns are renowned for their persistence and preference for boundaries and norms, they may occasionally be obstinate and overly perfectionistic.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
The sea goat constellation serves as the symbol for Capricorn, the tenth of the zodiac’s twelve signs. You are seen as being patient, diligent, and disciplined if you were born under this sign. Capricorns are renowned for their persistence and preference for boundaries and regulations, although they can have a propensity to be obstinate and overly perfectionistic.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
The last of the Zodiac’s twelve signs, Pisces, is symbolized by the fishes constellation. You are intuitive, artistic, and sympathetic if you were born under this sign. Although Pisces are renowned for their empathy and artistic talent, they can occasionally be too sensitive or delusional.
Horoscopes: Are they true?
Astrology: Is it true? Although reading horoscopes is a well-liked past time, is there any scientific evidence that it has any significance?
When you are lured by a familiar interruption and your willpower wanes, problems may result.
Every day, up to 70 million Americans consult their horoscopes. At least that is what the American Federation of Astrologers claims. According to a Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life poll conducted twenty years ago, 25% of Americans believe that the positions of the stars and planets have an impact on our daily life. According to the General Social Survey from 2012, 34% of Americans asked think astrology is “extremely” or “kind of” scientific. The percentage of those who think astrology is “not at all scientific” has decreased from two-thirds to roughly one-half.
The concept that astronomical phenomena, such as the stars above when you were born or the fact that Mercury is in retrograde, have the ability to affect the daily happenings in our lives and our personality traits is commonly referred to as astrology. The study of astronomy, which is the scientific study of celestial objects, space, and the mechanics of the cosmos, is obviously very different from this.
An element of astrology in particular that is gaining popularity is the ability to predict one’s future or provide advise on daily actions through horoscopes. Horoscope pages had 150 percent more visits in 2017 than in 2016, according to publications like The Cut.
It’s obvious that many individuals are looking for methods of star interpretation. Understanding the locations of the stars, the basis of astrology, seems to be a sufficiently scientific endeavor. But can science support the idea that astrology has an impact on our personalities and our lives?
But since I have you for the remaining five minutes of this six-minute-or-so podcast, let’s examine the precise methods by which astrology has been put to the test.
