Whether you are a firm follower of your daily horoscope update or not, there is no point denying the influence astrology has on us and the world we live in. But, most people tend to know only the basics, like there are 12 sun signs, and which sun sign they were born into.
How much do you know about horoscopes and astrology? Why not take your knowledge for a test and learn some fascinating facts about astrology you probably haven’t heard of before?
1. Rising Signs Identify Personalities
What this means is that your rising sign, or your sun sign, determines your personality or how others perceive you. In a nutshell, it can be explained as the mask we wear around other people.
2. Exact Time of Birth = Accurate Reading
For a very accurate reading (that’s not only based on your rising sign), you’ll need the exact time of your birth, up to the minute. If you have those, you’ll be able to know which signs all influence your personality.
3. Sun Sign Stimulates Goals
Your sun sign is connected with your heart and dictates what your passion and drive is. In other words, your sun sign determines what it is that motivates you as an individual to achieve your goals.
4. Moon Sign Signifies Emotions
In other words, your moon sign dictates mood swings and how your instinct kicks in. For example, your moon sign will signify how you will react to a certain situation, calm or anxious.
5. The Majority of Celebs are Sagittarians
This is an odd one we couldn’t resist including on our list. The majority of celebrities are Sagittarians, and the sign with the least number of representatives is Taurus.
6. Everyone Has Characteristics of All the Signs
Keeping in mind that you don’t have a single sign, it only makes sense that we all have characteristics of all the sun signs. If you’ve always believed that reading your horoscopes was inaccurate, chances are you’ll relate better to one of your other signs.
7. Sign Compatibility is Not Trustworthy
We’ve all heard that cheesy pick-up line, but is there any truth behind sign compatibility? According to some studies there aren’t. Next time you check your compatibility with your significant other, keep this in mind.
And there you have it! Some of us like indulging in reading up on our horoscopes frequently, while others view it as hogwash. While there may be some sceptics out there, one cannot argue the fact that the planets and certain aspects of astrology do ring true.
